rumors... [Dec. 19th, 2008|11:08 pm]
themiddleblog
[Current Music |tree adams - "moscow rules"]

ladies and gentlemen, one of the most gratifying elements of my current middlemania is the daily onslaught of queries...when will there be a season2? a dvd? a continuation of the tyler/wendy/manservant neville story? when will we know the middleman's true name? will the middleman and lacey ever...well, you know?

and of course, the rumors...so many rumors...will a dvd will come out in 2009? was the thirteenth episode actually written? will the story ever be revealed to the general public in some form?

well, i can't speak to such innuendo, as i am an official of the show and do not deal in such matters unless the deals are closed, the papers signed and the dvd's encoded...

...but i did find this lying around my desk and thought i'd share...

you tease you! but seriously, what would it take to get
a) a 2nd series or
b) a dvd release?

I had lots of friends who got hooked by ep 12, and then got the kicked-puppy look when i told them there wasn't any more to be had.

*Is unable to get script page image up to legibility*

Is anyone else reminded of the halcyon days of "Babylon 5" fandom when JMS used to yank our collective fan-base chains like this? In a good way, I hasten to add.

Just keep clicking & clicking on the images that pop up, eventually you'll get to a point where it's legible!

If you're using Firefox, click on the image, and then click it again until it shows up on its own page. Then a little magnifying glass cursor shows up. After it finishes loading, click on it, and it shows up readable.

*laughs and laughs*

We need the DVDs. We do. I know you're not the one to pressure for this, but I got two of my coworkers hooked on the show just by showing them a clip of the opening credits and letting them Google from there.

Think of the power I could wield if I could drop DVDs on people's desks! THINK OF IT!

MM dead? Just because Manservant Neville SAYS he is? Pshaw. And everything else is reversible.

I wonder if Lucas had any idea of what an Fannish Icon he was creating with that metal bikini. If only he'd included less goofy-looking shoes....

I wonder if that will be the first use of the word hentai on TV (outside of G4).

it would be at least the second, as the MM Pilot Sanction included the phrase 'Hentai tentacle monster' within the first 10-15 minutes.

history of the genre question

I just can't resist asking. Among the stylistic and thematic inspirations for "The Middleman," was this one of them?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072886/

The whole coming-up-out-of-a-pile-of-wrestlers-punching-in-all-directions thing was so classically pulp, had to ask.

Would this be the script for the unproduced 13th episode that reportedly Mark Sheppard, aka Manservant Neville, wants Middlefans to pester you about, so that a live stage reading can be held at next year's San Diego Comic-Con?

http://community.livejournal.com/middlefan/44436.html

If so, allow me to pester away!

My Natalie Morales "fanboy" side is so well documented that I don't think I need to add my accolades to the millions before me.

I do, however, wish it to be known that with this post, I am advocating that The Kremlin be offered some kind of cameo. I just have the sense that The Kremlin would also be a scene stealer -- and besides, if you're going to have an evil Manservant Neville/Return of the Jedi show-down, how can we forget to include the Russians too? Right?

Just as an aside, I know some people who like doing live radio-play productions of items - Post Meridian Radio Players in greater Boston. (I've been wanting to ork with them for years but work kept getting in the way) What would a group like that have to do to be allowed to do such a production of a Middleman episode? It would be dressed-up readers, Foley sound fx, and otherwise that's that, all in front of a live studio audience. No lasers or Haydars would be present, I believe. Well, at least no lasers :-)

Dub-dub donning the Leia slave girl attire. Trapped Noser, death bed Lacey with MM and the almost Middleboy six feet under. What a torturous tease!
