Far away in time

My New TV Crush July 3, 2008

So, I’ve been watching this summer show called The Middleman, and after Monday’s episode (#3) I think I’m totally falling in love with it. Then in my car today, I realized that if it was a person, and not a television show, The Middleman would totally be my ideal guy. It’s smart and funny, overly verbal, kind of retro, and full of pop culture references (not all of which I get). It’s kind of geeky (it is based on a comic book), very silly, and not afraid to make fun of itself. Plus it’s full of bright colors and big shiny toys. And of course it has the pretty:

I was downloading it (illegally, shh!), but you can actually watch it for free on ABC Family’s website, which I’m going to start doing so they can count me. I’m also going to buy the comic. Because it looks also awesome. I’ve never read comics (except for one of my friend’s issues of Sandman which totally scarred me (this was about three years ago)), but I’m getting this one and, Buffy Season 8, so we’ll see. (I’m trying to up my geek cred, but I’m not sure sticking to comics that are also TV shows is going to help.)
