I doubt anyone saw the premier of this show.... it was on ABC Family I think.... anyways... it's like a MIB meets the X-Files becomes a sitcom type thing... also it features a hot young female in one of the leading roles.

The young woman gets attacked by some tentacle monster, doesn't freak, when a guy comes in.... mysterious agent working for some kind of mysterious agent takes the monster out and later asks the chick if she wants to join up save the world from supernatural and unbelievable things.  It was kind of family funny, and the scifi element was decent.... I thought it was good.

I saw the commercials...does that count??

Anyway, the commercials had pretty corny jokes, but I hear from people that it was pretty good. I should probably check it out.

It was slightly campy.... but not in a bad way.

I haven't watched a lot of Eureka... some when it first came out, and some more recent....  but in a way the two shows are pretty similar.  I think Eureka deals less with aliens and supernatural things, doesn't it?  But both shows are rather humorous and involve out of the ordinary things, including super science gone wrong.  Middleman seems a little bit more camp and humor than Eureka though... and a lot of its characters are tuned more toward the alternatively cool.

If you haven't started watching it, I seriously suggest you do.  It's on ABC Family at 10pm Eastern for the Americans.... and somebody's gotta be torrenting this stuff for everybody else.. 

It might take a few episodes to get used to the characters, but I'm seriously looking at this show to be another cult following type deal. big grin

Two Dub Dubs?  This is like an awesome season finale!  I hope they bring this show back...  although it seems like nobody's watching..... which is a tad bit unfortunate. frown

I've just watched the entire series of the Middleman and I have to say that it's a work of genius. Seriously hope this gets picked up for a second series although it does seem from Winna's mostly one sided conversation in here that nobody is watching...  frown
