I'm watching this again. How is it possible for a show to be this funny and yet cancelled?! How!?
this show is up there with Curb Your Enthusiasm for sheer genius.
I guess most people just aren't clever enough to appreciate it, it is a bit fast moving.
It's totally like Seinfeld and The Simpsons. You have to watch them on DVD cause there's always about two gags going on at any one time, and there's generally only enough time for one.
Plus, all the stuff that blatantly foreshadows events in upcoming episodes throughout the show = hilarious when you notice them.
but it's grown on me immesurably
"Well if you want to be Eve, you'd better get in the queue behind, what, 100 homos?"
...full of Quotables. Millions of them.
"Tobias is a Nevernude."
"...is that exactly what that sounds like?"
but seriously they should make a movie version. I bet they could round up the cast for that sort of thing. *finger's crossed!*
an Arrested Development movie would piss all over 99% of the comedies released in the last 5 years
IT AIN'T EASSSSSYYYYYYYYY BEIN' BROOOOOOWNN
I GOT PRESSURE TO BE BRIGHT
I GOTS CHILDREN ALL OVER TOOOOOWWWWNNNN
"My suit costs more than you make in a month!"
Hey, I just saw an advert for Gob being in some movie. Yay, Gob!
Michael: There's been a lot of lying in this family.
Mother: There's been a lot of love, too.
Michael: More lying.
to get the Bob Loblaw joke.
But even now I can't say it without going into giggles for the next 10 minutes
Michael: "What do we always say is the most important thing?"
George Michael: "Breakfast?"
or something. :D
MAN IT FUCKING ROCKS. Have to get our first series back off my mate so we can start all over again.
I don't think it ever jumped the shark.
In america they kept moving the it on the listings to fit around other shows with more advertising. I understand that it started off well but soon lost any real audience because no one knew when it was going to be on. Ironically, exactly the same thing the bbc did. I do love this show.
Tobias is probably the best character in anything, ever.
"Well, yes, but I'm afraid I prematurely shot my wad on what was supposed to be a dry run, if you will, so now I'm afraid I have something of a mess on my hands."
off the fox website.....not that you can't get it from any one of the millions of other streaming websites. So, erm, it's great really......
You've gotta say that Gob is the best character ever in any sitcom ever ever ever
Or George Michael? Too hard to choose.
so not THAT hard to choose :)
and I have a knife in my mouth.
You're so wack
It gets off to such a great start and doesn't waver.
"Look what the homosexuals have done!!!"
"Can't you just comb it out?"
i watched pretty much a whole season of it in one day with a flatmate and while the writing is pretty funny the delivery was really, really bad.
Conclusion: It is your timing that's out.
Also: Chickens don't clap.
it felt like i was watching it for the second time when it was the first time, because i knew all the lines before they said them.
maybe it was. it did seem eerily familiar.
carl weathers is magnificent.
"...and baby, you got yourself a stew"
To this day, the word 'stew' makes me laugh because of Carl.
is just so ridiculously well written
"Under her yearbook photo it says 'not pictured'"
I decided to sleep in the car so my snoring wouldn't bother you. And I left that recording of my snoring so you wouldn't know I'm gone.
The whole show is comedy gold.
i think they were going to do another series but the writer couldn't be bothered to go through all the struggling all the time. it isn't exactly a motivation to be told every season that you have been cancelled....
"Like a cat....always on all fours"
Perfection in a box.
Tobias joining the Blue Man Group = one of my favourite moments.
The bit where he walks out covered in blue paint except for the denim shorts = one of the greatest comedy moments ever.
'i'd take a chubby, i'd get right down and suck it'
"hm, nothing wrong with that one."
how they had the audacity to cancel this show but keep shit like american idol i'll never know.
Loose seal! Loose seal!
