Just The Hecks on a Train


My favorite part of “Hecks on a Train” was when Brick played Aunt Edie’s favorite song on her old record player.  The soft music was the perfect backdrop to the family’s grieving and reminiscing.  Then, Frankie found Aunt Edie’s burial plans.  Where did Aunt Edie plan to be buried?  “South Dakota,” Frankie answered, and the record skipped like something you’d see in a cartoon.  It was clever and perfectly timed.

“Hecks on a Train” was not a very exciting episode of “The Middle.”  It was pretty much just about the family stuck on a train as the title explains.
