    Art Crawl!


    Ah, The Middleman...a TV show that aired on ABC Family during the Summer of 2008 at a time when the network was still trying to find its signature show. And through all the experimentation, with the lifting of spirits and dashing of hopes, that signature show would be...The Secret Life of the American Teenager!?! Unfortunately, success begets...the executives demanding more of the same, as in, "Find me our next 'Secret Life!'" So out goes The Middleman and Kyle XY...and in comes...10 Things I Hate About You and Make It or Break It. Sure, watching a "family" show about the struggles of teenagers is relatable to...other teenagers. I mean, Kyle XY ostensibly was a show about teenagers in high school, albeit with sci-fi elements, until they stopped being in high school (were they on an extended summer break, or was it like Smallville, where everyone was in college...until the characters all of a sudden weren't in school anymore?). Greek continues, but that's because it fits in with ABC Family's "A New Kind of Family" mantra, due to the relationships that these college-age kids form with one another. And yet, a show like The Middleman, that presented the struggles of young adults trying to make it on their own in the world, and yes, forming their own kind of family-units (yes, I'm alluding to Wendy and Lacey), doesn't find an audience and has to go into a Middle-Coma until somebody can figure out which end is up. Sigh! Was I ever in ABC Family's target demographic? Let's just say that I'm in the same cohort as series creator Javier Grillo-Marxuach, being ever so slightly older. Did I really know what I was getting into when I watched the season premiere of The Middleman last year? Heck no! The commercials and the posters at the mall looked cheesy, but it's a cheesiness that I've come to appreciate. The Middleman TV show, as Wendy would say, is something of an unwanted flipper baby. But even unwanted flipper babies need love, and I certainly love The Middleman. Come back soon Em-Em and Dub-Dub, because I certainly don't want to be the one that's responsible for saving the world....

    Well...summer of 2008...started off boring. Nothing on TV and no one to hang with. Saw these commericals about some show called The Middleman? didn't think i'd want to watch it, but like I said...nothing good was on TV. It was fate that nothing good was on that night, because I fell in love with this show. With too many cultural references to count, and a hidden Wilhelm Scream in every episode...this show is straight up fun. I'm most definitely picking these up the day of release. Think Men In Black...but even more dorky, yet just as cool. Great cast, great one liners, and great characters. "Fighting Evil...So You Don't Have To."
