I really enjoy this show because it encompasses many of my favorite types of entertainment. Heroes, monsters, villains, sketchy science, magic--it's all here. It also embraces (albeit in parody form) the culture that has sprung up around such types of entertainment. For people with imaginations that take them beyond the mundane in everyday life, I recommend this show.

I have only seen the show and it was by watching it that I found out about the comic and I am interested in reading it. The show seems very different then a lot of the stuff we see on television. It is funny and odd. It seems to be in the realm of a Doctor Who Get Smart fusion. The characters are likable and could be close friends of mine. They don't have superpowers so it is also cool to see normal people taking on the problems of the world. It is really easy to get interested in. It is also nice to have something this entertaining and different to get me through the summer.

I like middleman because the middleman is supposed to be this tough superhero guy but yet he doesn't really know who he is fighting for, which is interesting, and he says really funny things instead of cussing, which is obviously funny.

What a great new show. It's definitely not for everyone, but I found the characters charming, funny, and likable. I can't wait to see what happens in the future episodes! It starts off with Wendy Watson on the never ending job hunts, and she finally finds her job as a Middleman. Dealing with all kinds of odd creatures and evil that seem like they'd be straight out of comic books and sci-fi movies. I won't say anymore as I don't want to spoil it, but definitely check out this show! It's a good one :) I'm really excited for it, ABC Family has been stepping up their game, with shows like Kyle XY and Wildfire. It's awesome too that it's during the summer when most shows have just finished up their season.

I love the show because it an updated version of Dragnet, Get Smart, and Inspector Gadget all rolled into one. Makes for great comedy.

The pilot was hilarious so I'd love to read the graphic novel!

I love that it's so quirky and funny and that the heroine doesn't have superpowers and seems fairly normal. Plus, the supporting characters are excellent and don't seem cliche.

actually i only just saw a preview of this show yesterday, but it looks pretty funny, and it looks like an interesting story, i always love those out of place fantasy job kind of shows, the idea kind of reminds me of "Dead Like Me" but just a bit more lively

Its a great start for a comic to TV show look forward to show and reading his comic/TV show and loved his work in all the show he wrote for like lost. A bit of Men In Black meets Ben 10

I really enjoyed the pilot episode of this show. I especially like Moser. The idea of a superhero who is also a temp is amazing and hilarious.
