Julia Louis-Dryfus from Seinfeld (I don't know if I spelled Louis right). She'll be on two episodes that air on March 6th, That's Right I Said Two!

Tennis Bleh, unless it's being played by Mario and Luigi I don't care.

I almost wish there was a new Arrested Development this evening. But it would be squashed by the Oscars, furthering "confirming" to FOX that it's an unprofitable show.

I think that FOX said AD wasn't getting cancelled after a petition came about after the season was shortened for American Dad. According to them, it's just this one season getting shortened, not the entire run. But American Dad's ratings don't mean anything...everything gets a high rating after the Super Bowl.

Yeah, that episode of the Simpsons that aired after the superbowl, was the highest rated episode in 11 years. So ratings after the superbowl mean nothing.

Just a reminder, Next Sunday there will be TWO new episodes.

"Out on a Limb" at 8:30pm
"My Hand to God" at 9pm

Sweet! Doesn't sound much like FOX though. Seems to be more their style to stretch the season as long as they can if it means more space for ads. Oh, well, can't complain!     smile

Edit: Oopsies! I'm in a AD thread, so better say something related to the topic. Ummm... Sucks about the shortened season, can't believe American Dad is doing this!    up yours

(about Maggie's baby)
Michael: "But I thought I used....?"
Maggie: "You thought I was blind."

I liked tonight's two parter. Julia Louis-Dryfuse is as funny here as she's been post-Seinfeld. I honestly didn't see hwo the episode was going to end...this show does seem too complex for its own good. It's much too fast paced and requires too much for your average viewer.

I half wish that Buster could have his hand back, but I'm half impressed that the people behind the show can introduce such a major change and say "Right, this is how things will be from now on."

Great Episodes.

When I rewatched I noticed the cops hanging around much more than I did before.

There was so much stuff in this episode, I don't know where to begin.

I really loved when GOB was trying to use sick cats as bate. (What does that say about me?)

I thought that Maeby would end up finding the seal so that Buster could get his hand back.  That Maeby storyline didn't really seem to go anywhere, though.

No, it didn't. It was already a jam packed episode. Maybe she'll have a bigger role next episode.

Don't read if you haven't seen "Out on a Limb" and "My Hand to God".

I liked the turning of the chairs, and the reveal of it being George Sr. that called Lucille "grandma". I wonder if he'll be in the attic next week, or will he use the Escape to escape? (I know that was corny, I apoligize.)

I liked when GOB was called Tom Jane, after the actor in "The One Where They Build a House".

I really liked the morgue scene, especially after George Michael almosts dies. GM is definately going to need therapy.

I liked the cat bit very much, and of course the return of the literal doctor.

Last but not least, the reveal of the cops, I noticed them "hanging around" a lot more the second time I viewed the episodes.

I'm very glad the two episodes were shown back-to-back. Although it'll probably ruin me for next weeks episode, but i'm still looking forward to it.

How could I forget Julia Louis Dryfus? She was as great as I thought she would be, probably better.

I'll bump this thought to express my opinion that last Sunday's episode was one of the best of season, and by far the best of 2005 so far. So many great things. The callback to GOB's "Forced Smile" picture, the over the top Burger King plugging, Barry jumping the shark, Buster smashing down the window, the Sonny and Cher costumes, the zipline, and of course "Hey, Campers." And those were just the highlights of the highlights.

Why are people so set against not watching this show?!

Whenever I talk about this show elsewhere, they say they can't wait until it's cancelled, and other stuff I rather not talk about.

So i'm wondering why they hate the show so much, does anyone have any idea?

Don't know. I was slow to warm to this show, but now I find it can be quite amusing. Typical sitcom fare it ain't.

Still prefer Scrubs, though...

I don't know how anyone could hate that show. Maybe they have an idea in their about what the show is about. Maybe they think the show is too highbrow or something.

jan_18_1981 said she hated the show, but then again she was insane.

Check this out.

I didn't watch last season, but I've been watching for the past while. I get the feeling that there is a lot that I am missing, but it is still a great show. I have to see if I can get ahold of the first season somehow.  Is it coming out on DVD any time soon?

The first season of Arrested Development is already on DVD.

I think it came out in October.

New Episode:
The Immaculate Election

Great, great episode! Loved the reaccuring "Star Wars" thing with George Michael, loved Tobias as a maid, and the robot was funny as well. My only possible complaint is that Michael is becoming a dick nearly every episode, but that seems to be his character, and it makes the episodes funnier, so so what?

Exactly what I was thinking, David A. It looks like someone other than George-Michael is going to have a family problem.

Last night's episode was, I think, one of the best of the season. At the very least, it's in the top 3 episodes...I was laughing almost every second of this episode: the SW Kid reference, "Jesus is My Father"/"Steve Holt is a Bastard!," GOB all total, Buster all total, just a very good episode.

Honestly, I'm glad their moving away from the "the Bluths are losing the business" storyline and more to "the Bluths are batshit crazy" storyline. I didn't like where Lucielle 2 and Uncle Jack were headed...this new random cruelty is why I love AD.

I was waiting for Ron Howard to say that Tobias had never seen Mrs. Doubtfire. That would have been funny.

I thought the joke was that Tobias had seen Mrs. Doubtfire, but still thought that he could fool his family because of his great acting talent.

I loved how when Steve Holts father was revealed, the final countdown was played on the organ. I loved the video Gob made. "In the dark".

There is a love of incest jokes for this show, probably much more than any other sitcom ever. So far, there's been insinuations/miscommunicatiosn between George Michael and Maeby, George Michael and Lindsay, Michael and Maeby, Michael and Tobias, Buster and Lucielle,
I'm sure there are more character pairings, but those are just off the top of my head...

You mean Justine Bateman?  I hope that they manage to work a Mallory joke in there somewhere.

GOB also said that 'Kitty' sounded sexy on the phone before he learned it was Lindsay... minor, but it's there.

Anyhow, I was just watching some episodes from earlier this season, and when Buster found his hand-chair in 'Mexico', he said "I never thought I'd miss a hand so much" as he touches it with the hand he eventually loses.   Impressive foreshadowing (also, in last week's episode, they cut to Buster just after George Michael screams "My hand! You've cut off my hand" in the Star Wars bit. Not really forshadowing, but funny).

Tonight's episode was awsome. From Ben Stiller and Dan Castlenetta guest starring to the rip on Fox for cutting the number of episodes it was hillarious.

"They cut us from 22 to 18? Those bastards!"

I might have misheard it but I thought Dan put in a little Do'h after Michael's first surgery.

So how many Bluths have suffered some serious physical injury this season?

"The Sword of Destiny" wasn't as good as last week's episode, but then again, that was a fantastic episode it had to compete against. I don't want to come off as harsh, but the Michael being overtly possesive of G.M. didn't really do it for me. I know that's Michael's character, but there can be only so much of him smothering G.M. before it starts to lose its luster.

I liked the Dan Castellneta as the new doctor, as well as the swipes at Family Guy/American Dad. I could not believe how harsh they came down on AD. I suppose Arrested Development is yet another brilliant show that's now actively antagonizing Fox. Good for them.
