My husband: "Hey, have you seen this yet?"

Me: "Uh yeah, I read it at six am this morning because I follow Javi's Twitter feed. Duh."

My husband: "Aw, man..."

I guess I know what I'm rewatching over Christmas.

Is there anything associated with the middleman that wouldn't fill my heart with glee? Sons of Anarchy is now one of my top ten Middleman curses.

Javi is the best. I'm always tempted to tweet him pictures of adorable kittens when it seems like he's having a bad day, because I know that whenever I'm having a bad day I put on an episode of the middleman, and I'd like to thank him in some small way.

He also puts up copies of his scripts on his website (including the middleman pilot script), for those of you who find that sort of thing interesting.

Also, I was super bummed that Natalie Morales wasn't cast in SHIELD because I was really hoping I could just pretend that Dub Dub had transferred over. Not that I had any reason to believe that would happen, other than my own dreams and the obvious cashflow behind a stealth middleman spinoff (think of the tens of dvd's they'd sell from that angle alone!), but hell. Javi writes crossover middleman fanfic every year. Now I'm convinced anything can happen.

The only problem with rewatching The Middleman is that it eventually ends. Even though the Doomsday Armageddon Apocalypse gives closure, it's still bittersweet. Javi's little bits of fanfic help.

Also, the Middle Blog today has a list of pop-culture references from the story.
