Comic-Con’s MIDDLEMAN Lost-Episode Table-Read Online!!

I am – Hercules!!

Late in “The Middleman’s” short run, ABC Family cuts its order for the show from 13 episodes to 12, leaving one episode – “The Doomsday Armageddon Apocalypse” – unproduced. But as a special treat for Comic-Con attendees, the original cast and writers got together in San Diego two Thursdays ago to perform it anyway:

    I really enjoyed this and was crestfallen when it disappeared. Right blend of quirky and silly just like Pushing Daisies

    LOVED this show

    by Unbirthday

    Low budget, cleverly written, and sexy as hell. If you get a chance, check out this show from episode 1. Hysterically funny and smart.

    It was pretty cool

    by Mockingbuddha

    for a summer show when nothing else was coming on. I like the geek references and the fast talking. It kind of made me mad when the MM said "What the mpnkey?" in one episode because I've been saying that for nearly a decade. It's one of the phrases I use to avoid cussing in front of my students. I also like all those scooby words like jinkies and jeepers. I recently added, "By the hammer of Thor!" but I stole that from Tina Fay. Thanks for this link guys.

    I never heard of this show before Herc mentioned it at AICN. After reading the raves and then checking out a few other reviews, I'll definitely be picking up the DVDs. Thanks for the info!

    The Middleman?

    by antoniojvr

    I wandered into the hall where the cast was doing the reading (I was there for the Richard Hatch panel happening afterward) and enjoyed the reading so much, that I am going to check out the DVD.

    So underrated

    by JacksParasites

    The show had the wit of Buffy, the hilarious fast-talking of Gilmore Girls, and the campiness of the 60's Batman all rolled into one. It ruled. I so wish they'd gotten to shoot this episode.

  • Aug. 4, 2009, 7:11 p.m. CST

    Never heard of this show.

    by lockesbrokenleg

    Loved Middleman, and have a major crush on Natalie Morales!

  • Aug. 4, 2009, 9:48 p.m. CST

    I KNEW it

    by CZ

    I knew they were plotting to get Natalie Morales into the Leia slave girl bikini. Alas, now we'll never get to see it. :(
