i'm not a fan so far.
and, while i love david cross for his stand-up, he's not that funny in this.
Oh come on!
It has Rohypnol based humour - that's always gold!
taking a fatty, i will suck it up
David Cross's character is quite possibly the funniest thing in the whole show. Tobias is a legend!
You must be watching a crap episode. It also helps if you watch it from the beginning as a lot of the jokes are running jokes.
I fucking worship this show.
'with a' not 'wit ha'...obviously.
GOB when he goes around on the segway.
it's really shit.
all the jokes have the potential to be good but the comic timing is diabolical.
i think i ACTULOLed about twice in FIVE WHOLE EPISODES.
that is poor.
Quick-paced Brechtian psychological trauma-based humour fuelled by awesome character-acting and ridiculously smart worplay is not physically capable of being shit.
couldn't they just write it so there's so need for one?
BBC2 have seen fit to schedule it in the old "No-one Will Watch This, Those Who Do Will Forget To" Seinfeld slot. As a result I've seen about 6 episodes, even though I've known about it from the beginning.
I can't place exactly what about it that makes me laugh, it just does. It's really intelligent, but clothed in stupidity. It's stelligent (c).
one of the best programmes to ever grace a television. Fact.
Don't buy Bluth!
for me, the first one has some great moments but it's nowhere near as consistent. It's really bloody funny.
henry winkler chews the scenery as barry zuckerkorn, he's amazing - lionel hutz made flesh.
it's the best thing either he or ron howard have put their name to since happy days.
are now my favourite bit. Gob dancing to The Final Countdown with a knife in his mouth and twirling hankerchiefs gets a yes from me.
Arrested Development, I just bought the third season on Thursday and now my collection is complete. The third season is amazing. "Bob Loblaw's Law Blog" say that 5 times fast!
It's filled to the top with in-jokes that carry on from previous episodes.
Quite frankly, I think it's the best show I have ever seen.
give me a youtube link to something funny off of it
of all AD clips on YouTube were not music videos.
Tobias: "Allow me to take off my acting pants and pull my analrapist stocking over my head."
Almost certainly the greatest comedy ever. I have to keep myself from smashing something when i think that Fox replaced this with the utter blige that is 'The War At Home'.
Mine is Pier Pressure from the first season, George Sr's lessons are brilliant.
from the third series. It's on BBC in a couple of weeks. It's the episode where the writers have realised that show wont be recommissioned and react accordingly. Pretty much every line has some clever joke or reference tied to it.
by the BBC. Tonight's arrested development is on at 12.55, due to the golf. Why bother spending money on procuring the rights if you're not gonna let people see it.
