ladies and gentlemen, alan sepinwall - tv critic for the new jersey star-ledger - who has been liveblogging "the middleman" just paid us that enormous compliment in his column...thank you sir, and thanks for your support of "the middleman!"

to read the rest of señor sepinwall's comments on "the middleman" have a look HERE!

and to read his rather in-depth interview with yours truly, have a look HERE!

and he's not alone in his kind words for the show - zap2it's kate o'hare, a friend from way back to "jake 2.0" also had some choice words to say about "the middleman!" to read her comments, click HERE!

and that's not all, kate was also swell enough to post some sound bites from our chat in her "hot cuppa tv" blog - you can check those out HERE!

Sepinwall's comments are tremendous, but I am saddened by its somewhat pessimistic undertone regarding the show's renewal. I for one continue to believe that the overwhelming positive critical response, of which Sepinwall's blog is just one of many examples, will still win the day. I sincerely believe that television production executives recognize that critical acclaim is an intangible form of goodwill to a network that goes beyond mere Nielsen numbers. I realize that attitude to a degree may be looking at the entertainment world with rose-tinted glasses, but it continues to be my sincere view of the situation.

I find the fact that these articles continue to mirror my own adulation of the show is the real point -- The Middleman's supurb writing, production values, and acting repeatedly underscore this is one of the finest shows to appear anywhere -- on network or cable television -- in quite a while.

Mr. Sepinwall is a prince. Here's hoping for a "dramatic uptick," and fast.

Love the show!

This really is an awesome show. You and everyone associated with the show have done a fantastic job. I hope you get renewed or, if not, that you are at least given an opportunity to shop the show to other networks (e.g. Scifi). I don't know that Middleman jives with ABC Family's core audience, and maybe that's why you guys had a problem...
