A fun show you're probably not watching - The Middleman
A few weeks ago ABC Family started running a new series, The Middleman. I just happened to catch a promo for it the weekend before the first episode aired and it looked weird, in a good way, so I had my TiVo grab it. Now a few episodes in, it is a lot of fun. It is kind of a quirky Men in Black story, but the humor and quirkiness remind me a lot of the live-action The Tick. It is cheesy, weird, quirky, and fairly amusing. If you like quirky shows, especially with a sci-fi core, check it out.

And while I'm recommending things for you to check out, see Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. It's an online video project by Joss Whedon staring Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion, and Felicia Day.

Ha! I'm watching it, because iTunes had the first episode for free.
And good lord, my friends are Browncoats, I know about Dr. Horrible. :-)

...And Kevin Sorbo guests as a 70s-era Middleman revived from stasis in an upcoming episode...

And who can forget Iron Chef America's Chairman as Sensei Ping. Rock on.
