  • Wendy Watson a.k.a. Dub-Dub, is a struggling artist out of college going from one temp job to the next. On one of her jobs a freak accident occurs with a tentacle beast. The Middleman appears. The Middleman convinces Wendy to become his partner.

    The show seems cheesy, but it is not supposed to be taken seriously like other superhero shows that try too hard to push the drama. The characters are likable. Wendy Watson and the Middleman are very witty to each other's remarks. One particular trait is the Middleman's inept ability to curse, or his lack of cursing. It's a typical "good guys catching bad guys" show. It's a change of pace to see something light hearted that viewers can watch without complicated story lines and severe plot twists that would take viewers multiple episodes to catch up. The series looks very promising.
