Sitcom about a dating service

There are two primary reasons that startups fail: One, the execution of the idea is poor (wrong location, poor product, bad service, etc) and two, the startup is not making something that people want. That said, even renowned founders and investors like Paul Graham have made mistakes.

In 1995 Paul started a company that aimed to put art galleries online.

What he didn’t realize at the time was that this wasn’t how the people that attended art galleries wanted things to work.

Her father Mike sells a side business that was just starting to pay off for him, and covers the tuition himself — in part because he feels some guilt over how sloppy he and Frankie have been about keeping up with their kids' lives, and in part because his two dominant character traits are his stoic reliability and how protective he is of his daughter.

Though The Middle isn't tightly serialized, it does maintain continuity. If something in the Heck house breaks, it can remain broken for years.

The Middle debuted the same year as the more cutting-edge (in its way) Modern Family, which has gone on to be an Emmy perennial.

In the years since, it's shared airtime with the likes of Fresh Off the Boat, Speechless, The Real O'Neals, and Black-ish, all of which have come across as more "relevant," for one reason or another.

In his essay on Startup Ideas, Paul says that many founders build things no one wants because they begin the process by thinking of startup ideas, rather than of problems that need to be solved: “At YC we call these “made-up” or “sitcom” startup ideas.

Perhaps because of that "not too much thought" part, The Middle has coasted through eight-and-a-half seasons without drawing a lot of attention.

It's not a staple of modern TV criticism's weekly recap format.

In the latter is oldest child Axl's slow-dawning realization that being a high school football stud doesn't guarantee success in life, and Frankie's habit of leaving her bras lying all over the house, and the whole family's tradition of "floating" special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries until they have the money and time to celebrate them properly (which sometimes never happens).

In short, The Middle has been a consistently sharp, often laugh-out-loud show — with something true to express about modern life — for nearly nine full years now.

Can a sitcom that's been on the air for nine years still be called "underrated?
