I watched the show when it was around and loved it, but, somehow, it slipped my memory. Now, I have all of the seasons on DVD and have seen every episode and I must say it is the best sitcom of the decade. All of the characters were great, the humor is so smart and funny, and every episode is worthwhile. It is a shame that a show like this gets cancelled because it is simply brilliant. Hopefully the rumored movie gets made because that would be awesome. So, what are your opinions?
"I watched the first episode when it aired locally and hated it. Since then I always made an effort to make sure there was something else to watch when it come on."You really missed out on one of the greatest comedy pieces of all time. I highly suggest you give it another shot, but it's up to you, naturally.
I love this show...and I may be in the minority that thinks the death was a good thing. I think the 3 seasons really fit well together and wrapped up everything nicely. And the show is responsible for introducing us to Michael Cera and revitalizing Jason Bateman's career. Yay. And I love Clark and Michael as well!
"highly underrated and total bullshit that it was ever cancelled. "I agree, but I think the fact that it was canceled early adds to it's legend. I'm glad that Jason Bateman is getting roles in films. I think Hollywood saw that the show and its actors were extremely talented, and it's beginning to show.
There is a very strong rumor that there will be an Arrested Development movie next year.
Alia Shawkat who played Maebe had said she was approached about doing a movie, and Jason Bateman kind of forced the issue in an interview. Apparently Mitchell Hurwitz is writing a script and Ron Howard has agreed to direct it. Lets hope it comes true!
