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.


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.

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!
