OUR FAVOURITE TV MID­DLE CHIL­DREN

Fairlady - - NO KIDDING -

Jan Brady Brady, Bunch The Al­ways in the shadow of her per­fect older sis­ter, Jan was the OG [orig­i­nal gang­ster] TV mid­dle child. Say it with me, ‘Mar­cia, Mar­cia, Mar­cia!’ Lisa Simp­son, The Simp­sons The of­ten-mis­treated hero of the fam­ily, Lisa’s sto­ry­lines, though funny, are al­ways the most thought-pro­vok­ing. Mal­colm Wilk­er­son, Mal­colm in the Mid­dle As the mid­dle child in a ram­bunc­tious fam­ily of four (later five) boys, Mal­colm’s ge­nius IQ didn’t make his life any eas­ier, at home or school. Stephanie Tan­ner, Full House and Fuller House The sassy mid­dle child, Stephanie Tan­ner had a catch­phrase for ev­ery sit­u­a­tion. ‘How rude!’ will al­ways stay with us, es­pe­cially with the re­vival, Fuller

House, get­ting a fourth sea­son. Alex Dun­phy, Mod­ern Fam­ily Clearly the smartest per­son in the house­hold, Alex is of­ten neu­rotic and an over­achiever, quick to de­liver a snarky com­ment at her brother or sis­ter’s ex­pense. Sue Heck, The Mid­dle Sue is the awk­ward mid­dle child who lives in all of us. She’s even get­ting her own spin-off se­ries. Cue the Sue happy dance! Carl­ton Banks, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Cardi­gan-wear­ing Carl­ton was def­i­nitely the heart of the show – and who could ar­gue with those dorky dance moves? Lady Edith Craw­ley, Down­ton Abbey The for­got­ten sib­ling in the first sea­son, long-suf­fer­ing Lady Edith proves her­self later when she takes over The Sketch mag­a­zine. And, af­ter mar­ry­ing Ber­tie Pel­ham, she be­comes the Mar­quess of Hex­ham, a ti­tle that out­ranks even her fa­ther’s – who’s for­got­ten now? Leonard Hof­s­tadter, The Big Bang The­ory If be­ing told con­stantly by his mother that his achieve­ments amount to lit­tle com­pared to that of his sib­lings weren’t bad enough, lov­able nerd Leonard also has Shel­don as a (for­mer) room­mate/ friend. Although, he did end up with the hot girl next door, so there.
