I caught the jabs at Family Guy and the reduced episode order, but when did they make fun of American Dad?

And the jabs at the reduced episode order made me incredibly happy. Not only did FOX deserve it, but it means that they must have had some notice of it, so maybe they had time to make episode 2.18 a proper season finale.

The reason Arrested Development is having a reduced episode order is so American Dad can take over the 8:30 spot in May...and then be promptly cancelled, so Arrested can take the spot back in the fall.

No, Fox is just playing them out of order. (sound familiar?) They did that once or twice with last season, which is a huge bummer, because so much of the show is based on what happened the week previously. I wouldn't be surprised if there are huge continuity errors for the next two aired episodes.

Last nights episode was in my opinion, the best episode ever. Here are some of my favorite parts.

1) The shot at fox over Arrested's episode order being cut. That part put a huge grin on my face for a good 45 minutes.

2) Tobias trying to get figured out so he could stop being Mrs. Featherbottom. The beard stubble while in Mrs. Featherbottom costume was awesome, and his obvious fake mustache, it's even faker than his normal one.

3) The return of the phrase, "Where'd the lighter fluid come from?"

4) Dan Castalleneta (or however it's spelled), I heard him say d'oh too.

5) Ben Stiller as Tony Wonder. Also the Family Guy pop up on TonyWonder.com, it was the same exact pop up that fox used during Arrested I loved it.

6) The Buster and GOB magic act, especially where Tony Wonder was watching them from the dumb waiter.

7) Any episode with John Beard in it is awesome, Booyah!

8) The George Sr. tape, with the GM part at the end.

P.S. TonyWonder.com is up and running, no Family Guy pop-up ad though.

I liked Tobias insinuating that He'd love to get up Michael's Colon. Everything He says come out so gay.

Return of the literal Doctor was kickass.

Dr. Fishman: Iím sorry to say this, but itís too late for me to do anything for your son.

Michael: Let him keep talking.

Dr. Fishman: Because Dr. Stein here has already been assigned to his case. Youíre lucky. Heís the best.

Dr. Stein: Well, only in the county.

Or maybe she understands that it's just acting.

Anyway, I think that Ann is hilarious.  Or maybe I just like the idea of Mae Whitman and Alia Shawkat being on the same show together.  I'm not sure which.

Just watched the new episode.

Meet the Veals

Probably the best episode in quite a while, this episode shines because of it's great, great, jokes, as well as the complicated twists that we've all come to expect from the show. George Michael and Anne getting pre-engaged was great, Anne's mother suddenly making out with Michael was classic, and that talking puppet dude was freakin' sweet! Funniest thing I've seen all month! laff

Yeah Franklin was pretty cool, I liked when George sr. was arguing with him, and choking him.

I didn't catch what Oscar and Michael were saying to each other when Oscar was choking Michael. Does anyone know?

"Why are we even targeting this idiot demographic?" - Maeby

So, Spring Breakout might be the second last new AD episode ever. I thought of that and immediately got depressed that such a wonderful show could be near the end. But I can tell that the staff is planning on a near end, by their breaking of several rules (Lucille making fun of Michael because everyone knows George Sr is in the attic, the covering of the camera with the cameraman's hand, the Narrator making fun of the narration, etc.)

There was almost too much going on this episode. Instead of an A story, there was an A, B, and C story. I still don't like Maeby's job at the movie studio, but I do like how GM is going to leave Ann for her. You knew they'd have to break up eventually.

I'm not sure what it is, but I really like Kitty as a character. Any episode she's is generally more "plot heavy" than any other. I really want to know what was in teh cooler and how it would have proved George Sr.'s innocence. I suppose, however, that we can never find out, because once he's innocent, then he returns to the family and there's no more show.

Didn't dig the Dick Van Patten stuff, but maybe that's because I'm too young. I did like Buster getting drunk for the first time...a definate replay-worthy moment.

Fox in general is trying to back Arrested development. Its the opposite to what happened to futurama. I think that AD will get renewed.

It's funny. I haven't noticed any sort of publicity for AD until the last few weeks. I've actually seen (*gasp*) commercials for it during non-Sunday night shows! If only they gave it this kind of publicity earlier in the season, AD would at least have higher ratings.

Well, shows are generally renewed/offically cancelled in May, so we still have a few weeks left of wondering.

I liked the return of "no touching", that was probably for our benefit.

And Buster getting s**t faced was awesome.

Plus the Bluth party was cool, that's how an intervention is supposed to go.

Who is Dick Van Patton, and what character did he play?

Dick Van Patton was a tv comic/actor from the '60s. He played the investor who Michael was trying to buy land from.

Imagine arguing with someone who doesn't think you need water to live. Pretty dumb person, eh? That's you in this case. You're waterless Willy. While you're out there licking dirt and watching "CSI: The College Years," the funniest show in the history of your life is going unnoticed and unappreciated. You sicken me, sir or madam. And in case you are wondering, yes, I am better than you because I like this show and find it funny. Much, much, much better. Much.


p.s. much.

Explain how that's so when you need water to live when you don't need Arrested Development to live? And don't give me some fucking 'you do need arrested development to live' crap.

I beleive the point he was trying to make was that the statement "You don't need water to live" is a false as the statement "Arrested Development isn't funny."  And if I may back that up with another quote:

"If you're offended when I call you stupid for not liking Arrested Development, tough. That's what you areóstupid!"
-David Johnson, from his DVDVerdict review of Season 1

EDIT: About a year ago, I posted a link to a USA Today study that polls people's opinions on what "On the Bubble" shows they'd like to see get renewed, with AD being one of the options.  Well, they're doing it again this year.  Could it help get AD a 3rd season?  Doubtful, but it couldn't hurt.

Everyone here is planning on tuning into tonight's potential series finale, right? Although AD's chances of being renewed are looking better these days, IMO, I still acknowledge that tonight might be the last ever time that Ron Howard informs me that "It's... Arrested Development."  frown

That whole house breaking was extremely great! I loved how George Senior was under the house, and Michael getting arrested was also nice. One of the best episodes of the run, definitely. And that's saying a lot!

I really hope FOX revives AD for another season. It's the best thing on TV right now.

With this season behind us, I deem it to be ever so slightly below Season 1. Season 2's highs were higher, and it's lows were lower. But it all balanced out, and I hope quite vigorously that it's renewed next year.

The One Where Michael Moves Away: 9
The One Where they Build a House: 9
Amigos: 10
Good Grief: 10
Sad Sack: 9
Afternoon Delight: 9
Switch Hitter: 8
Queen for a Day: 8
Burning Love: 8
Ready, Aim, Marry Me: 7
Out on a Limb: 9
My Hand to God: 9
Motherboy XXX: 10
The Immaculate Election: 7
The Sword of Destiny: 9
Meet the Veals: 8
Spring Breakout: 8
Righteous Brothers: 9

Highlights: Tobias in Blue Paint, Peanuts references, "Those are balls," "Heeey Campers," the Star Wars kid, Franklin, and "Dad will be Crushed."

And that's my thoughts. I hope to be back in this topic in November, lavishing praise upon the third season premiere. See you then.  wink

My Ratings:
The One Where Michael Leaves: 8
The One Where they Build a House: 8
Amigos: 9.5
Good Grief: 8
Sad Sack: 8
Afternoon Delight: 7.5
Switch Hitter: 7.5
Queen for a Day: 7.0
Burning Love: 7.5
Ready, Aim, Marry Me: 6.5
Out on a Limb: 9
My Hand to God: 9.5
Motherboy XXX: 8.5
The Immaculate Election: 9.5
The Sword of Destiny: 7.5
Meet the Veals: 8
Spring Breakout: 8.5
Righteous Brothers: 9

I hate giving '10s' for anything, so the most I'll go is 9.5. As you can tell, I honestly thought the show kinda slid for a while mid-season, but once Buster lost his hand, the show righted itself.
