So stop trying to convince me that The Middle is as good a show as Modern Family, because that is simply not true.
[###]I'm well aware that I'm being hypocritical in comparing the two, because I have said in the past--and it is still true--that in general it annoys me when people can't just say that they like something or that something is good without saying that something else is bad. But sometimes it's just necessary, and today is one of those times for me.
