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

They were gonna be doing a table-read of a LOST episode.

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

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.

Definitely up there with the brilliant-but-canceled contenders

It was a show that was fun, funny, full of heart and never failed to be entertaining. I miss it being on the air desperately!

Was my only reason to ever watch that network!

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!

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.

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.

And they get a panel at comic con?
Loved Middleman, and have a major crush on Natalie Morales!
Aug. 4, 2009, 9:48 p.m. CST
I knew they were plotting to get Natalie Morales into the Leia slave girl bikini. Alas, now we'll never get to see it. :(
