I watched the first episode of ABC Family's show The Middleman with my oldest neice just while ago (DLed it) and though it has a quasi-corny feel to it, i was surprised to find myself enjoying the banter. The premise rips heavily from Men in Black, with a sqeaky clean sense of humor that zings. the dialogue did more for the show than the plot or FX or anything. now the main character DubDub as her friends call her, is really the pentultimate geeky chic and well, she's adorable. if they do things as usual at ABCF, they will run this show a season or two, then 86 it. I think with a little more backing from the House that Mickey Built, they could upgrade the lame-o elements and make this a possible hit. With all the big guns on the main Networks, i doubt it could compete, but it has a niche where it is and room to grow.
