Awesome! Can't wait! I'm a relative newbie to MM - I missed the first half of the season - so I'm desperately hoping the show is aired again. Regardless, I'll definitely be buying the DVDs!
The "beryllium sphere" was also in Galaxy Quest, wasn't it?
Sadly, I'll be up in the sky flying back home to Holland on monday...
Guess I'll just have to read the awesome comic.
I read this before reading the disclaimer. Oh well. I love Escape From New York though. (Not so much Escape from Los Angles...)
And I was standing in Javi's parking space yesterday waiting for a package from the other show at that building. (I'm a courier, not a stalker) Seeing the empty space and no Star Wagons next to it was sad as it meant, no filming that day. I really hope you get picked up and get put on DVD. (When is Jake 2.0 going to be on DVD? I asked Keegan once a long, long time ago, and she said she heard rumors from an exec-producer, but I've heard nothing since then)
Holy Crap, you mean I'm not the only dude on the planet who knows who The Shadow is?
I love that movie. Just watched it, along with The Rocketeer and some olf Flash Gordon serials, at a friends' Pulp Movie Night a while back.

Escape From New York
I caught part of "Escape From New York" on AMC the other day. I was born in St. Louis a few months before it came out in 1981. It's hard to believe parts of the city were that awful back then. These days, it's not too bad. Many of the locations in the film have since been renovated, restored, and gentrifiied.
Looks like fun. I can't wait... (Well, okay, so I guess I don't really have a choice. Guess I'll have to play the game where I see the references first and then try to picture the scene. Miss Saigon, ggl... Tyler's new job interfering with his relationship already?)

Too much coolness for mere mortals to handle
How ever will our intrepid hero and the Middle-chicka survive? How will we survive the horrendously long wait to find out?
Serously, we need a Middle-marathon to hold us over until DVD release-age.

Re: Too much coolness for mere mortals to handle
No, we need a Middle-MIRACLE to hold us over 'til (hopefully) the 2nd season. What will happen tommorow, the season finale!!! Only you know. That sounded weird.
RE: Escape from NYC
The Middleman? I heard you were dead!
This episode? Fanfreakingtastic. Amazing job.
this episode was awesome
but i'm having a total freakout over the end.
am I the only one who thought that sounded like finale finale material?

Re: holy grail.
Which would make me cry.
Am I hearing things, or was Father Pip's "Come with me if you want to live" a throwback to Terminator?
Great episode. Even my dad chuckled at some of the references.
Yeah, the T2 reference needs to be added to the list.
I'm also curious what the number typed in the keypad was. I was figuring a 1138, but that wouldn't work as a date for Daddy Watson's disappearance. (Personally, I vote for Waldo Watson, but Wendell could work too, in a pinch...)

Did ABC cut out like 20 minutes or something?
There were two very strange narrative jumps coming back from commercials. In the first, we go to commercial with Wendy talking about looking for a place to hide in the parallel universe, and when we come back she's in the middle of her conversation with Noser.
The bigger one was at the end - Wendy and Lacey are trapped in Fatboy HQ, we go to the break, and when we come back apparently alt-Middleman has rescued them at the cost of his bike?
I assume these weren't intentional, right? This was supposed to be a 90-minute episode and ABC just botched it or something?

Re: Did ABC cut out like 20 minutes or something?
i think your cable company had issues...saw all of the stuff you missed here.

Dr. Horrible /Middleman crossover
I would like to mention that the ray gun that was used in the palindrome reversal palindrome has been seen before. It's the Freeze Ray from Dr. Horrible.

Re: Season 1 Finale
Awesome finale!!!! Many thanks to all who worked on this series. The best one in a long time. Any word on renewal? I am keeping my fingers (and toes) crossed. Any way we can help? At least get us a DVD set if all hope is dashed!!! Thanks for the references too...it goes so fast I miss some. GREAT show!
Love, love, loved this week's episode, although I wish I knew for sure that there were more coming in the future.
If that's all
she he you guys wrote, though, it's been one gosh darn heck of a ride, and I loved every second of it.
Awesome episode! Even better than last week's. Where do I send M&Ms to ensure more delicious Middleman?!?
