    An Underappreciated Classic

    I caught the last episode of The Middleman five minutes in while I was mindlessly flipping through channels one night. Less than a day later I had already downloaded the complete series from iTunes. In the following weeks, I bought the comics, went to the fansites, and attempted to make my own Middleman costume (badly). I didn't have to think twice about buying the complete series. I have watched every episode dozens of times and the extras too. This may be the best television show I have ever seen; it just never gets old for me. If you're a canny, pop culture-loving geek you are already one of us and you will adore this show.

    The Middleman is great fun!

    I wish there had been another season. Clearly the writers and cast were having fun too.

    SO SAD

    I can't believe abc family canceled Middle Man. This was my favorite show and I stayed up to 11 on school nights just to watch it. I cant believe that they kept that stupid Secret Life of the American Teenager on. All that show does is promote premarital sex and having kids when you're a teenager. Middle Man was so much better.

    I need more !!!! Energy Drink

    This show was recommended to me by a friend, or I never would have heard of it. Like most excellent-but-cancelled TV shows (Firefly, Cupid, etc.), it seems to have been a poor match for its network and under-advertized. Which is a pity, because it is brilliant.

    If you watch just one episode, pick #5 "The Flying Fish Zombification" - which had me screaming with laughter. "Troooooout! TROOOUT!"
