Re: Revisiting Arrested Development

I just rewatched the season 2 episode "Good Grief," where George Michael is hiding his grandfather in the attic but Michael thinks he's hiding Ann. The best part was when George Michael finally confessed, "I have pop-pop in the attic" and Michael replies with "the mere fact you call making love pop-pop shows me you're not ready." I was laughing so hard I had to pause the show. Isn't this show wonderful?

Re: Revisiting Arrested Development

I've been watching a lot of AD this weekend (Might be able to finish Season 1 tonight) and something I noticed was the number of guest stars this season had. In the last few episodes alone we've had Jane Lynch (Probably before she got famous with 40 Year Old Virgin), Julia Louis Dryfus (To me, she's either Elaine or Salina Mayer, so it was weird to see her on this show in a pretty funny role so far) and Heather Graham. Not only that, but Liza Minelli and Harry Wrinkler has had recurring roles through this season too.

As for Season 1 overall, there's been a ton of stuff happening in only 16 episodes so far. Where I'm at now feels like the beginning of the season was a long time ago. It's been hilarious though and looking forward to finally getting around to seeing Season 2.

Re: Revisiting Arrested Development

I just started season 3, and even though I'm only three episodes in, it already has a different feel to it than the first two seasons. The jokes are more explicitly sexual (as opposed to hinting at it) and some of the dialogue just feels...different. Not necessarily worse, just not the same anymore. I still enjoy the show though.

Yeah, the amount of guest stars was huge, and there's even more in seasons 2 and 3. Charlize Theron, Andy Richter (x5), Judge Reinhold (with a hilarious tie-in), Scott Baio, Zach Braff, Thomas Jane... just off the top of my head!!

The new season will also have a huge number of guest stars.

Re: Revisiting Arrested Development

Ok, Alter Egos and the Justice episode might be the two best episodes of Arrested Development yet. There's those rare occasions where I laugh so hard at a show (Parks and Rec being one of those shows) but that Justice episode was downright hysterical.

The guest star I forgot to mention though did take me by surprise, Amy Poehler. I'm assuming this was where she and Arnett met and ended up tying the knot until recently, right?

They were actually already married when Arrested Development began.

Oh ok. I really do like Amy with the brighter hair instead of the brownish look. She looked really young in AD.

Re: Revisiting Arrested Development

Finished Season 1 and started Season 2 last night. Great ending to season 1 and I'm looking forward to Season 2 because I've actually never seen this season. It got off to a great start though, even though it really does seem to me that the only sane person in this family is George Michael. This is a great cast and all, and the show is quite funny, but he's the only likeable, and logical, character. Because of that, I'm not sure if it will unseat Parks and Recreation as my favorite sitcom (Everytime I watch that show it's like being filled with Joy), but I can see why it's so universally loved. It really is a well written, hilarious show.

^It really says something when the most sane character on the show is secretly in love with his own cousin.

But the thing is he's aware of how awkward it is (As he was with the whole Take your daughter to work day, which was an incredible episode by the way). I don't think the other characters are aware of just how odd they are. Also, they keep throwing in hints that Maeby might not even be his cousin. With that being said, this is really one wacky show.

Re: Revisiting Arrested Development

I read an article about the show which described George Michael as "the comedic straight man to Michael's straight man", implying that even though the show presents Michael as the sane one, he's actually also crazy and George Michael is the one who keeps Michael grounded.

George Michael is easily the best character in the show, which is incredible considering in 2004 when the show premiered no one knew who Michael Cera was, but EVERYONE knew Jason Bateman, David Cross, and Jeffery Tambor. He was the youngest actor on a show of heavyweights.

Re: Revisiting Arrested Development

Two shows have asked this question now. First it was Farscape and now it's Arrested Development. Why does paper beat rock? Rock rips paper (And apparently sinks boats ). It's a stupid rule.

That was they introduced lizards and Spock.

The stupid rule is still there, but Spock says it's logical and the lizard agrees, so it's all good.

Probably still the best scene BBT has ever done.
