Some things in the mid season are great when you watch it over. Like the constant foreshadowing that Buster will lose his hand.

I just watched the last episode and it has to be the funniest episode. The george senior in prison montage, GOB and franklins album, theres to much to list. In the next season, Tobias better feature.

There's some good news about AD's future. Apparently, FOX will be airing repeats of teh second season during the summer. That's what they did last summer with season 1. Hopefully, that means that FOX is preparing people for a new season. That way, new fans can catch up before the third season.

In the "Not Without My Daughter" episode, do those two gay cops really have daughters or were they pretending? (maybe to hide their gayness or something. *shrugs*) There was no mention of their daughters this season, right?

No, there wasn't. Perhaps both cops had wives and daughters from previous marriages, but did not realize their homosexuality until they became partners. That way, they each divorced their spouses and got together to make a new baby.

One more step towards getting that crappy show at 9:30 off the air. I'm happy that Arrested Devolpment get renewed. I like this show and hope to see it in the future.

"For two years, it has been the best comedy on television. And now there will be a third year. Congratulations to show creator Mitch Hurwitz, the amazing cast and the 100,000+ people who took the Arrested Development Loyalty Oath! Your efforts have ensured that we’ll all be treated to another season of our favorite show!

But you don’t have to wait until fall to introduce people to the Bluths. With some of the best Arrested episodes encoring this summer, you can find a friend who’s never seen the show and sit down with them so they can see just how great this show is!"  - a pop up on www.fox.com/arresteddev

But has AD been on season finale break? Cause that would explain why I haven't seen it on FOX recently. Awesome show. Awesome Jason Bateman. I love you Jason Bateman. He's #2 on my list.

He said new episodes of "Trading Spouses," "Nanny 911" and "The Simple Life" had been ordered; odds are in the television business that some of the new series will fail and Fox will need quick replacements.

Replacements, eh?

Mondays at 8 o'clock?  But that'll put it opposite 7th Heaven.

Also, I notice that Quintuplets has officially been cancelled.  Not at all surprising really, but I feel sorry for Andy Richter.

Yeah, but this is his second show on Fox that's been cancelled now.  Obviously Andy Richter Controls the Universe should never have been cancelled in the first place.

On the other hand, Quintuplets did have that episode where one of the daughters kissed another girl.  Any show that has teenage girls making out with each other can't be all bad.

Anyone who's been into the DVD Collection thread lately will know I recently bought Season 1 of this show. Anyway, since they haven't aired any epsiodes past Staff Infection here and I got bored of waiting, I just had to get some new episodes. I saw The One Where Michael Leaves yesterday...

Great episode. A little slow to begin with, though considering a large amount of the episode is story-based and seems to set up some great plots for the rest of the season, I'll let it go. Luckily, it got absolutely hilarious in the last 5 minutes. The whole thing with Tobias and the Blue Man Group was great, as was the whole idea of Lucille elisting Buster in the army just to prove the filmmaker wrong.    laff

I'm really looking forward to George Sr. on the lam, and seeing Gob in charge of the Bluth company. Overall, lacking in laughs at some parts, but given the amount of storytelling needed for an episode like this, it's understandable. Still, some terrific lines, and quite a few good callbacks to Season 1. Great to see the show going in a new direction.

8.5/10
It would've gotten an 8, but "I just blue myself" put the rating up.    wink

*New and Improved "I Can't Believe It's Not Bump" (Now with 40% Less Fat)*

Tonight Fox is going to show the first two episodes from the second season. I think that's The One Where Michael Leaves and The One Where They Build a House.

They'll continue airing 2 episodes every friday. So this is your chance to watch the entire 2nd season before the 3rd seasons airs.

They air tonight at 8pm on Fox.

Did they even promote this? I don't remember seeing any commercials for it. But I don't watch Fox much. *shrugs* I missed the first 15 minutes of the first ep. Bastards.

It's weird here, since The Comedy Channel (on Foxtel, which is basically Australian Cable TV), they run commercials for Arrested Development all the time - which now has the first season on rotation weekdays at 8:00pm (with a marathon of the previous week's episodes on Sunday evenings). It's strange to see it get so much promotion, since the show was immediately buried to a 10:30pm timeslot here on free-to-air TV, and was NEVER promoted in any way whatsoever. But now, I don't think you can watch The Comedy Channel for 20 minutes without seeing a commercial for Arrested Development. They were even airing long 5-minute promos complete with cast interviews and funny show clips between shows... I'm really happy to finally see it get the promotion it deserves, even if it is just on Foxtel.

On a side note, I've now seen all of Season 2 up to Queen for a Day, which I watched a few days ago. Odd episode - really more of a collection of small B-stories than one main storyline, though I LOVED Tobias and his "gang." The Blue Man Group storyline was becoming stale anyway, so it's good to see them getting back into gay innuendos with him.  smile

Yeah, I finally saw "Sad Sack" this past Friday. It really cleared some stuff up for me, like why Tobias was wearing cut-offs again.

And I saw the first 20 minutes of "Afternoon Delight" which I had also missed. I love GOB's sexual harassment speech. That guy's crazy as hell, but I love him.

Bump. Amazed this thread isn't more popular at the moment, what with all the Season 3 spoilers circulating the internet, and the premiere just 9 days away... Anyway, I've finally seen all of Season 2, so here are my ratings:

The One Where Michael Leaves: 8/10
The One Where They Build a House: 8/10
Amigos: 8.5/10
Good Grief: 9/10
Sad Sack: 7/10
Afternoon Delight: 8/10
Switch Hitter: 7.5/10
Queen for a Day: 7/10
Burning Love: 3/10
Ready, Aim, Marry Me: 9/10 (What? I liked it... Oh, stop booing. There are dozens of us! DOZENS!!!)
Out on a Limb: 8/10
Hand to God: 9/10
Motherboy XXX: 7/10
The Immaculate Election: 8/10
Sword of Destiny: 7.5/10
Meet the Veals: 8.5/10
Spring Breakout: 9/10
Righteous Brothers: 9/10

Overall, an amazing season. Got a little average towards the middle, particularly with the shockingly boring, predictable and unfunny Burning Love, but picked up with Ready, Aim, Marry Me (why do so many people hate this episode?) and only got better once Buster lost his hand. Oh, and let's not forget Franklin and Mrs. Featherbottom, too.   wink

So much better than the first one, and that's saying a lot. It never ceases to impress me just how many callbacks, references, in-jokes and foreshadowing the writers put into this show. Roll on Season 3!

It really wasn't a bad episode, aside from everything Martin Short did or said.

Well, I had no idea who Martin Short even was, so I went in with an unbiased opinion. While I'll admit the flashback to Red McGibbon and Bullet sucked, there were SOME good moments with Uncle Jack ("To the nuts!" ), and nobody should judge an episode badly because of a guest star. I just think Ready, Aim, Marry Me was great because it kept me laughing the whole way through. Double chicken-dance, Buster using his army training skills, and perhaps a new record for gay jokes with Tobias for any episode.

As for Burning Love, the only good bits were with Gob and Lucille 2 (although Lindsay's 'Wrench' plot had a few decent moments too). The whole 'hot tub in the attic' storyline was stupid and unfunny, and I just really couldn't get into it at all. The plot with Michael and Sally Sitwell lacked any humour whatsoever, and even though it had the traditional 'everything manages to go wrong in every possible way' formula that makes Arrested Development so great, it just wasn't done in an AD-esque way. George Michael and Anne's 'CD Burning party' joke was lame too, even if their kiss was pretty funny.

I just didn't get into Burning Love at all, and I've seen it quite a few times now too, so it wasn't just a one-off thing. Still, it wasn't totally bad, and still beats most other shows. It was just a below-average episode by Arrested Development's usual standards.

Also, after rewatching Righteous Brothers twice now, I'm putting the score up. INCREDIBLE episode. AD knows how to pull off a great season finale.  smile

They don't allow you to have bees in here.  tongue

I've got the Season 1 DVD, and each episode of Season 2 burnt onto individual DVD-Rs. I will, of course, buy the Season 2 DVD when that comes out here, but this is all that holds me over right now. I usually watch about 3 episodes a day on average, in no particular order.

Well, I don't think that it was a bad episode.  I don't even think that Martin Short was necessarily a bad choice for a guest star.  I've seen what he can do when he's not trying to be so cartoonish, and he could have done a great job.  Instead, we got Ed Grimley meets the Bluth family.

Also, he just didn't look like a believable 90-year-old man.   no no

I'd agree with you there - they could've AT LEAST made him bald or at least given him grey hair to make him seem somewhat older... though I suppose he could just be dying his hair black. While most physically fit people tend to age quite well, 90 years old is definitely a stretch. 70, maybe, but not 90...
