If you usually avoid going to the ABC Family channel to avoid getting subjected to pregnant teens, teen gymnasts, teen sororities and other teen-related things, you were missing out. Nestled in between Greek and Make it or Break It was a true gem of a show called The Middleman. Following a twentysomething artist's initiation as the sidekick to the Middleman, a clean-cut, tie-wearing secret agent-slash-superhero, the show ran for 12 episodes of monkeys, luchadores, surreal humor, bizarre villains and astounding wordplay. Initially released as a comic book by Lost and Charmed writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach, the entire series was recently released on DVD, and will be followed up by a graphic novel telling the final chapter in the saga. We talked to him about his experiences making the show, his next project Day One and what it's like for dreams to come true.
