No, Western Australia... a huge, unpopulated, dry wasteland inhabited mostly by mentally unbalanced idiots...

... Basically exactly like New Orleans, except for the "dry" part.

Why is Michael the only one on the cover of the season 2 DVD? I know the show is centered around him, but I really doubt that he's the most popular character on the show. Kinda unfair to everyone else.

Well, you can see outlines of everyone else in the background, and on the back of the box, it's the exact opposite - Michael's just a white outline, and everyone else is shown. All characters are shown on the side too, I believe.

Season 1 looks better. When does this hit Australia because I'm only just getting my hands on a season 1 dvd. I made disc 1 out of episode downloads and 2 and 3 are reserved at the video store so I'll get them and burn them when it comes in. Beamer how did you see season 2? Did you download it?

I downloaded it, but only because I thought Channel 7 would never air it, and I was so eager to see the show after getting Season 1. I'll still undoubtedly buy Season 2 when it comes out on DVD down here. Same for Season 3... As for when the Sesaon 2 DVD comes out here, I don't know, it might be a while. Season 1 came out in November 2004 in the US, took another 4 months or so until it was released here.  frown

But come on, don't burn an illegal copy of the Season 1 DVD, you'd be the biggest cunt. Arrested Development's a dying show - it's mainly because of its dedicated fan-base that it even got a third season in the first place. It needs all the support it can get, and with ratings like this, the best way to support it is by buying the DVDs.

I'm downloading season 3 now but haven't seen 2. I'm still going to burn 1 but I can't be bothered searching the video stores for 2 when it comes out because this took a while so I guess I'll buy it. It's just I'm strapped for cash now and I looked ages to find a video store that has it.

JB Hi-Fi usually has lots of copies of it, they're only $44. And with 22 episodes, that's a bargain. $2 an episode, and that's not even including the special features...

When 2 comes out I probably will. Besides buying it in Australia won't make a difference and seven will never pick it up in primetime. I mean I payed $70 each for Futurama season 2 and 3 and that didn't do shit.

Was Arrested Development ever on it primetime before it went late night? If so what time, what day and what year was it on. I'm wondering why I never knew about until so many message boards raved about it.

It started airing here December 2004, at Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 10:30pm. It was never in a better timeslot. And while buying DVDs here probably won't affect the timeslot here, they still count towards international DVD sales, and could be a big factor in Fox's decision on the fate of the show. Either way, it certainly couldn't hurt, right?

I noticed that in the scene where Gob's in Michael's office, but it's actually pretty bad continuity when you think about it, given they were switched in Sword of Destiny, then were fine again in Meet the Veals and Spring Breakout, then switched for the last episode. And you can't say that Sword of Destiny works as the 17th episode of Season 2 either, since the Mrs. Featherbottom storyline's still running through that, then ends in Meet the Veals. It doesn't fit anywhere!!!

I just finished watching season one. But coincedently up to episode 15 of season 2 on a site that offers all of it without having to download it. The qualitys kinda sucky but I'll watch them a second time when I get the dvds.

Arrested Development
Starts:9/19, 8pm, Fox

Where We Left Off: Oscar (Jeffrey Tambor) was mistakenly jailed for twin brother George Sr.'s corporate crimes, and Tobias (David Cross) left Lindsay (Portia de Rossi) for Kitty (Judy Greer).

Shades of Martha: "George Sr. will be under house arrest this year," says creator Mitchell Hurwitz. "So he'll be trying various Wile E. Coyote ways of getting out."

Romantic Developments: Michael (Jason Bateman) falls for an intimidating British woman with a secret (Charlize Theron), while kissing cousins George Michael (Michael Cera) and Maeby (Alia Shawkat) find out if they're related.

What's The Big Idea, Buster? Afraid he'll be forced to testify in his father's trial, Buster (Tony Hale) "fakes a persistent vegetative state, while Lindsay campaigns to let him die with dignity," Hurwitz says. "But he wants to live without dignity."

He's probably still in jail. It should be interesting to have Oscar and George Sr. living together. (If they ever decide to do that.)

Hmm? Are you referring to the fact that AD hasn't been on the air for a few weeks? That's because of the baseball playoffs. If you're talking about some European TV thing, I don't know.

AD will be back on November 7, with 2 new episodes.

And why would Oscar still be in jail? They've caught George, they have no reason to hold Oscar in jail anymore, he's obviously been released, and has gone back to his trailer since Lucille kicked him out. Maybe he's just waiting for his hair to grow back until he shows up again?

Oscar does have other reasons to be in jail: the drugs and that. Perhaps they know about Oscar's past and are holding him for that. Or they can't think of anything for him to do.

All that "looping", as David Cross calls it, (where they add lines. Usually when the camera is on the back of a character's head) is much more obvious to me now after repeated viewings. And I hate it.     tongue That's the only bad thing about Arrested Development. Oh well.

I love David's rant at the end of the bloopers. He's in his padded bra and in the attic, so that'd be from the 22/18 ep. ("Sword of Destiny" ) Good to see what at least one member of the cast thought about that.

Yeah, the "looping" was REALLY prominent in Season 2. I noticed it in quite a few episodes, particularly in Sword of Destiny. Interestingly, it's usually David Cross whose lines are "looped" - you can usually tell when it happens too, the volume of their voice changes and the sound conditions of the room are different.

You can also notice it in Sally Sitwell's last line in Out on a Limb, when she says "And now you think you're the father of a baby because a woman who lies told said that you weren't" and Michael replies "That really is a great way to put it, we communicate so well." However, if you listen in the background, you can hear a loud horn noise coming from one of the ships... I THINK that noise was originally supposed to overlap her line so we couldn't hear it - hence the joke with Michael's reply - but at the last minute, the producers decided to put the line back in. Shame, could've been a pretty funny joke.

Lucille sent him to the Milfred School to teach him a lesson, she said that in either Sad Sack, Afternoon Delight, or Amigos.

It was in Afternoon Delight, when she complained about the break-in and tried to move in with Michael, claiming she was lonely (hence why he mentioned Annyong). I believe he was still with them in Amigos - I think it was either that or The One Where They Build a House that had the "Here, go see a Star War" line.

And I'm starting to suspect that isn't even a Futurama av you're using!

Is Buster's "reproductive organ/lobster tail" line much more audible on the dvd? I seem to remember only knowing what he said because of the closed captioning when it aired. It seems much louder and clearer now.

Yeah, because he just told her Buster got in Michael's trunk. (To go to Mexico)

Why did Michael keep saying they were going to Lego Land in that episode?
