Due to the unfortunate fact that it did get cut incredibly short, I feel I cannot list this show as my all time favorite. I give that title to Seinfeld. Even though Arrested Development only had three seasons, it was one of the funniest shows on TV. Ever.
I tuned in every single week to see what those dysfunctional Bluths were up to. They never disappointed. But you, the viewers did.
As soon as I heard about the death of AD I was stricken with sadness. The same kind of sadness you get when you wipe your ass and the toilet paper rips making you touch your shitty butthole. It was a rough day.
Luckily, Netflix is here to save the day.
Get a Netflix account now if you don’t already have one. Especially now that Arrested Development is making its incredible comeback. You NEED it. On May 4th, 14 brand new episodes will be released all at once. I know what day I’m calling in on.
This show was so cleverly written. Mitch Hurwitz’s mind works in marvelous ways. I loved how he would write jokes in season one for scenes that wouldn’t even happen until season three. Just small lines that you’d normally pass by until you watch the whole series for a second time.
You had George Michael, who was such an incredible awkward teenage boy, Buster, the over protected grown adult child and Gob, what can’t I say about Gob?
Every single character had so many bright parts in the series. From Tobias’ sexuality to Uncle Oscar’s secret fathering of nephew-son Buster. Fuck, even the poorly worded doctor was hilarious.
This new 14 episode season is leading to a full length Arrested Development movie. I absolutely can not wait any longer.
Jason Bateman has been making some wonderful movies since his re-breakout role as Michael Bluth. The Change Up with him and Ryan Reynolds was pretty funny.
It’s so hard to pick a favorite character from this series, but I’d say it would have to be a very close tie between Gob and Tobias. Tobias fucking cracks me up. The shit this man says is so funny. “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.” What the fuck!?
Gob’s chicken dance, hell, all of their chicken dances are funny.
I have marked May 4th on my calendar, and you should as well. If you have never watched this show before, then you must start now. All three seasons are available on Netflix. Get caught up or finally catch on. Spread the joy of AD with your friends and family.
It’s a Festivus miracle!
Remember, remember the fourth of May. Shit, that doesn’t quite work for this, but still. WATCH THIS FUCKING SHOW!
I just blue myself.
