The ABC sitcom The Middle is one of those shows that was not quite on my radar. I know that it starred Patricia Heaton, who played Raymond’s long-suffering wife on Everybody Loves Raymond, and Neil Flynn, Janitor from Scrubs. I had no idea what the series was about or even when it was on. Recently, I caught a few mini-marathons of The Middle in syndication on ABC Family, and realized that this show is pretty friggin’ awesome! I seriously can’t get enough of it.
The 1-hour Season 5 finale airs this Wednesday, May 21, 2014, at 8pm on ABC, and will see the downtrodden Heck family at Disney World on a vacation they won. The show went on location to the Florida theme park to shoot the finale. Watch a video here below with some on-location glimpses from the episode, as well as interview footage with the cast and crew.

The Wonderful World of Hecks’ – Season 5, Episode 24 – air date May 21, 2014
While Sue counts down the days until the Hecks depart on their road trip to Walt Disney World (she won the trip in a “Hands on a Hard Body” contest), Brick begs his parents to take a detour to North Carolina so he can meet his online girlfriend, and Axl anxiously awaits the posting of his final grades as a college freshman. Then, when the Hecks arrive at Walt Disney World, a good time may not be had for all when a series of misfortunes threaten to put a damper on their trip.
