If you are a fans of the soaps, and a huge fan of the iconic Knots Landing, that you got a kick out of Wednesday night’s episode of the hit ABC comedy series, The Middle.

In one of the story arcs during the episode entitled “Film, Friends and Fruit Pies”, Brick Heck played by the hilarious Atticus Shaffer has to a film project for school, and he chooses to use scenes from the 1980’s part of the CBS soap opera, Knots Landing.

Brick goes to his parents, Frankie (Patricia Heaton) and Mike (Neil Flynn and says upon choosing between going with ‘Knots’ or a different options for his project:  “I binged watch all 14 seasons … I know what you’re thinking … but Knots Landing has that indefinable “it”.  Plus, it’s one of the few historical records we have of the 1980’s.”

Later, Brick enlists his friends, Cindy and Troy, to renact a scene for his project portraying the roles of Abby Ewing (Donna Mills) and Gary Ewing (Ted Shackelford). As he directs them, Brick says,  “OK, Cindy in this scene you are Abby, a beautiful temptress who will stop at nothing to get what she wants.  And Troy, you’re Gary, a handsome, naïve, Texas transplant, who used to be married to Valene, but then Abby stole you, and now she’s trying to make you, Gary, feel better about cutting your best friend Kenny out of Ciji’s recording deal.”

Not happy with his friends performance, Brick yells “Troy, I’m seeing the acting all over the place. This is Knots Landing, let’s keep it real.  Didn’t you people watch the 14 years of episodes I gave you?”

After his friends bail on him for his overbearing and controlling directorial behavior, and with one key scene left to shoot Brick now enlists his parents to finish the last scene. ” I’m a director! It’s my job to bring Knots Landing to life, a writer wrote this,” he says.  Next when Frankie and Mike get in front of the camera it is their job to perform a scene between Karen (Michele Lee) and Mac (Kevin Dobson).  When Mike feels odd in the way he is sitting he says to Brick, “Who sits like this?” Brick replies, “Mac and Karen sit like this, OK?”  After Mike has had enough, Frankie is left with a last-minute Mac fill-in and hilarity ensues.
