Yeah probably even though its a dump. That for some reason reminded me of when Micheal called his son an anne hog. Lol.

Michael says they're going to Lego Land because that's where he was planning to go after retrieving the staircar from Mexico. It was on the way back from there, and Michael DOES say to Gob at the start he's planning on taking George Michael to Lego Land so he can spend time with him. However, George Michael doesn't want to go after they abandon Ann there ("I just want to find Ann and go home." )

I've always hated Michael's "I think we've gone out 8 times now" line. Why would he tell Sally that? I'm guessing it's for our benefit, but that line just  bugs me coming from Michael. If you need it in there, have Ron say it.

I never noticed that Michael, Gob and Buster are the Mexicans in that "Usted baila como un hombre que vive como mujer." film. *slaps forehead*

Also, they call jelly beans candy beans. I've never been able to see them that clearly on the tv. Is that some weird Orange County thing, to call them candy beans? Freaks.

Maybe they couldn't get the rights to jelly beans, or just decided to go and create their own food names for the show? Either way, it does definitely seem to be a running thing - Gob called them candy beans twice in Switch Hitter, and the Narrator called them that in For British Eyes Only, too.

New episodes start in 2 weeks.  smile

It might be, I've heard both - but I'm pretty sure it's on November 7... better than October 31, anyway (I'd assume Halloween is a low-ratings night in America), and we ARE getting TWO new episodes when it returns.

Like anyone would wanna "R" you...

On another note, I take back most of the negative comments I made about season 2. Watching the DVDs, it's really the same witty show it was before. There are still a couple of "stretches" here and there, where they go a little too far for double-entendre, but whatcha gonna do. There are too many laughs for me to legitimately complain about anything.

Me too, though I have to say that with quite a few Season 2 episodes (namely The One Where They Build a House, Amigos, Switch Hitter and Queen for a Day), I absolutely hated them the first time I saw them. Then, with repeat viewings, the plot flowed easier, everything made sense, and I picked up on a LOT of subtle jokes I missed (The One Where They Build a House is brilliant for this - all the comparrisons with Gob and George Bush were just great, and rarely called attention to themselves). The new episodes definitely lend themselves better to repeat viewings, and they're so crammed full of hidden jokes and references to past episodes, you could never catch it all in one viewing.

Episodes. We're getting two on Monday.  smile

Also Airbagfailure, glad to hear another person discovered this show... Unfortunately, I should probably tell you that AD doesn't have marathons on Sunday anymore. That was just a one-off, since they were showing all of Season 1 in one day. However, they do have it on rotation daily at 8:00pm (and with 22 episodes, it doesn't take long to get through), and of course, you can always get the DVD. I think most places have it for around about $30-40.  wink

I have season one on DVD now and I'm planning on picking up season two at some point. I've been catching an episode of season 3 here and there, but I have a heavy courseload and I'm generally too damn busy to watch it on Mondays. I can't believe they moved this to make room for The War at Home.

As I've said 3 or 4 times now, there are two new Season 3 episodes this Monday.

And no, The Comedy Channel won't show Season 2. Like with all shows on Foxtel that are on free-to-air, the free-to-air channel has rights to show them first, meaning The Comedy Channel can't show it until Channel 7 has shown a certain amount of it, or a different certain amount has passed since it aired in the US. Still, Channel 7 should be moving onto Season 2 next week, and I've heard the Season 2 DVD will be out here in January.

Well Futurama Fox "season 3" was shown on foxtel well before 7 did and seven never even finished Futurama. A number of shows are also aired on foxtel and never on free to air. Anyway I'm going to tape season 2 so I have it all on video.

Season one of AD aired IN FULL on The Comedy Channel before it did on Channel 7. The rules are vague - keep in mind Channel 7 did take Futurama off for 3 years before bringing it back for a third season. Like I said, some Foxtel channels can still air shows before free-to-air does, providing a certain amount of time has passed after airing on U.S. tv (eg. Foxtel won't get the rights to Family Guy Season 4 until 2007). It's complicated, to say the least...

Holy shit 2007. So will it air on 7 on the holidays probably? No matter when you download them and burn them onto dvd. Speaking of which there will be a new download for FG and AD tomorrow.

Hah, 2007. I'd forgotten what a joke Australian subscription television is.

How much is a Foxtel subscription? You're better off paying for a DSL connection with a decent download allowance and torrenting all of the shows you want as soon as they air in the US or the UK. Saves paying a fortune for repeats, sport and filler.

Yeah I have Optus broadband 10gb download limit. It's pretty good and I just download all the shows. But sometimes I'm still limited since I choose torrents. Like for instance I think I have to stop downloading housewives for a short while since American dad, Family Guy and Arrested Development are back on.

Well, it's not mine, it's my parents' - who got it mainly for the sport and UK channel. Why, I don't know. If I had a choice between broadband and Foxtel, of course I'd pick broadband, but it wasn't my decision. Still, at least I have something to watch between 2:30pm and 6:00pm...

Holy mother of god. I even found it hard to download 35mb sp's back in my 56k days. Do you leave it on all night or something because that would cost heaps and wouldn't be worth the time. I mean don't you download Arrested Development, South Park, Family guy and American Dad? I used to leave it on all night for sp till 2004 when we got broadband. But then I had a limit of 1gb which sucked ass. Then in Fg's 3rd episode of season 4 my dad decided if your going to be downloading that and ad we need 10gb plus I always went over the limit anyway. So it's 10gb all the way which is still limited for me now.

Yeah, I download all those... and The Simpsons. Though that and Family Guy aren't at the top of my priority list, it's mainly new Arrested Development and South Park I'm worried about.

I have no download limit, and no, I don't leave it on all night, I just always have a download running when I'm on here. I'm usually on for 5-6 hours a day, and it only takes me 2 or 3 days to download one episode. Right now, I'm getting American Dad 203 (though if it's not done by the time Arrested Development 304 and 305 are up, I'll pause it and finish it later)...

I also had a friend with Broadband who I payed to download various things for me for a while this year, though I'm out of contact with him now, so it's all up to me.  wink

Anyway, back on topic... Anyone remember the "You've GOT to stop starting conversations like that" line from Hand to God, when Lucille phones up Michael and screams before saying anything else. She actually DID start a previous conversation like that earlier that season in Afternoon Delight. I  love AD.

Haven't you seen forget me now yet? Tonight I downloaded FG 204 and watched it. Not a bad episode. Tommorrow American Dad while I go to school. Then after school I'll download that fabulous Arrested development hour. I have to priorotise as well so I'm leaving out Desperate Housewives and My name is earl a new NBC show out for a while.

Nah I don't remember since I've only seen season 2 once and that was over two days in a boredom strike on an online streaming internet site as I may have repeated many times.

Of course... good episode. A little weird at times, though - there were some parts that really didn't feel like AD. Not quite sure why, I think it's either the fact that it was written by a new writer, or the piano music that kept playing in the background through it. It just didn't fit in with AD's usual upbeat musical score. Still, quite a few great moments. The surrogate was hilarious, as was Gob with his roofies.  smile
