more Middleman

By the way, the television program Middleman continues to grow on me (it's a story about a "Middleman" and his female sidekick who work for a Men in Black type agency that fights to protect humanity from comic book type dangers and villains. For some reason it's shown on the ABC Family channel). The show is really funny and clever, and it gets away with shorthanding a lot of stuff, assuming that the viewers know the basic rules for, say, fighting zombies (you gotta destroy the brain) or vampires (stake through the heart, of course). I also have a small crush on the female lead, Natalie Morales, who plays the intrepid, but sarcastic Wendy Watson, aka Dub Dub (get it- two Ws for Wendy Watson?).
She's cute. She's cool. She makes me laugh.

Anyway, since the show is both clever and buried in a programming slot that puts it deep into the basic cable lineup, I predict that the show will have a short run before being cancelled. Catch it while you can.
