David A, it was based ona comic book of the same name.
Basically there's this guy... He's called The Middle Man, and he works for a secret organization (so secret he doesn't even know who they are) and his job is to save the world from supernatural disaster like stuff.
Anyways, in the show and presumably in the comic (I've never read) this one chick who likes to do arts and has worked for every temp agency in the area gets a job working with the Middle Man.
The Middle Man ends up training his replacement. Anyways, the show was witty and funny... Like ummm... If you crossed Gilmore Girls with Men In Black with.... geek culture?
Kevin Sorbo guest starred on an episode.

I think it's well worth the try out if you haven't seen it.... Unfortunately it's probably too mature for the ABC Family audience and thus will never get out of hiatus hell.
Sounds like my kind of show; too bad I missed it. Maybe it will come out on DVD, or I could always check out the comic.
