Spy TV!

March 13, 2009

There’s an excellent article over at the Onion AV Club about television spy shows. It’s like it was written just for me. I can see how they missed The Sandbaggers, but how did they miss MI-5/Spooks? Other than that, though, it seems pretty darn thorough — with much love for Mission: Impossible (the original, not the evil movies) and a very funny clip on the second page that makes me think I need to check out The Middleman. Almost everything you need to know about TV spy fiction — nice!

    Oh, have you not seen The Middleman yet? I’m willing to bet that Jenn at least will LOVE it! Go rent it and surprise her with a DVD treat!

    Nope, haven’t seen it! I actually saw some commercials when it came out, but they didn’t sell it quite as well as that YouTube mash-up did…

    Yep — here’s what I wrote about it a while back, if that helps you make up your mind.
