How do you explain the awesomeness of The Middleman, ABC Family's shortlived series about a young artist who gets apprenticed to the world's most strait-laced superhero? That's the dilemma Shout Factory faced in creating a cover for the DVD set, and they considered a dozen psychedelic options. Gallery below.

Honestly, the only thing that's wrong with any of these covers is their heinous inclusion of the words "The Complete Series" instead of "Season One." But that's not the cover designer's fault.


The new DVDs contain all the episodes, including commentary tracks on the "The Pilot Episode Sanction," "The Cursed Tuba Contingency," "The Clotharian Contamination Protocol" and "The Palindrome Reversal Palindrome." And there's a disc of special features:

1 Deleted/Extended Scenes
2 Weekly Javicasts
3 The Middleman-ager
4 Gag Reel
5 Casting Sessions
6 The Wilhelm Scream
7 Original Opening Title Sequence Animatics
8 Original Opening Title Sequence
9 "The Palindrome Reversal Palindrome" Table Read
10 "Scream Ur Luv 4 Me" Music Video
11 Scripts
12 A Gallery of Photography by Ralph King

The Middleman, The Complete Series DVD set will be released July 28, but you can pre-order it now. Why risk forgetting?
