The Manicoid Teleportation Conundrum  
Okay, tonight's ep of The Middleman is my fave thus far. It's as wacky as the pilot, had fantastic character stuff with Lacey and Wendy, Wendy and the Middleman, and great middlegadgets and lore.

I am a happy monkey.

ETA: plot spoilers in comments.

EMETA: NEXT WEEK WE GET ZOMBIE FISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

or, you know, zombies and fish. either way, i'm good.

EMEMETA: Duh. Also directed by Jeremiah Chechik (him what directed the pilot). I AM NOT SO BRIGHT, SOMETIMES.

Terrific character stuff. Where is the MIddlefic? I ask you. We have middle everything else!

Also, they killed off Dr. Gil. Is it wrong that I'm kinda way too amused by that?

DUDE. NO ONE SHOULD BE EXCITED ABOUT FISH. IT'S WRONG.

Next to Reg in the Guards, and zombie dogs, zombie fish may be my most faviourite fictional construct ever.

FISH ARE EVIL AND SHOULD BE DESTROYED!

Also they're all slimy and fish-shaped and EWEWEWEW.

But the best part is, they will be destroyed, and they will be destroyed while dancing backwards in high heels.

THIS IS EXACTLY HOW GINGER ROGERS WOULD HAVE HANDLED A ZOMBIE AND/OR FISH INCURSION. I BELIEVE IT, SO IT MUST BE SO.

Okay, I can approve of that. Because really? There are TOO MANY FISH in the world and the Zombie ones should just go away. Because OMG, EWEWEWEWEWEW, THEY'RE EVEN SQUISHIER AND EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

Tonight's is just airing here. I'm just hoping the new 10pm time slot isn't some kiss of death for the show.

It was a fantastic episode! But...do you know if ABCFamily's showing them out of order? It seemed like he was showing her the changing room and the dojo where Master Ping of the Pointed Stick Clan would train her for the first time.

Anyhoo. The Back To The Future references were hysterical.

Yeah, it felt a bit out of order, but there was a throwaway line referring back to the luchadores, so at worst it got a quick rewrite after being moved. It did feel odd having her accepted after the luchadores only to be in training day mode here, it might be that they had some scripts that were written to be shootable in any order and then did last minute tweaks once they'd decided on the final airing order.

Next week: Dance Fu!

I'm too lazy to make my own LJ post for this episode so I'll just comment on yours.

Was great, I agree it's the best episode so far.
