Two awesome new episodes tonight. I won't review them until I get them downloaded, but they were certainly back up the usual high AD standard after some weird first episodes this season.

They finally pulled the trigger on the Rita storyline, and with Charlize Theron only signed for one more episode, there doesn't look to be any more twists left. Unless, of course, it's a triple-swerve, which seems pretty unlikely.

Larry the Surrogate continues to be awesomesque. I loved how George Sr. is still too lazy to even meet with his family in the penthouse and relies on Larry to do his work there.

The Lindsay/Bob Loblaw thing didn't really click for me. Perhaps it was just my local station, but the show was joined like a minute into the program.

Steve Holt is always a joy to watch. For once, he became a character instead of just a one-note joke. His desire to be loved by GOB and lying about the Triathalon show how similar he was to his father. And it's fresh to see Michael teamed up with someone fresh.

However, the best part of the hour was Tobias vs. George Michael over the wreckage of Sudden Hill. By far the nerdiest joke they've done so far.

Haaaa. Awe. Some. Episodes.
But I guess this means no more Kinda sad to see her go. She looked pretty good in this ep (with her camel tow  tongue) Tobias telling George Michael to have sex with her was hilarious.
I get the silver medal thing now. I didn't at first. That'd be the special olympics. *slaps forehead*

Kinda disappointing that there isn't something else going on with Rita. Did we really need to wait this long to find out something we already knew?

Is "pussy" something that isn't allowed to be said, or did they just choose to do that?

I think that they did that just for comedic effect, like how they bleeped out "fag" when it was obviously being used to mean cigarette.

Hey Everyone

Long time lurker of this website, first post.  Just wanted to let you guys know that fox will not be showing anymore episodes of Arrested Development until December and they cut back on the ordering the new episodes.  So pretty much they are pulling a "Futurama", though I suppose I did see it coming (ie: changing times/days/lack of support).  frown

Anyways, just wanted to let people know, I am getting pretty tired of Fox pulling the shows I like mid-season.

From the Variety article:

 
Quote
On the positive tip, ABC has given a full-season pickup to Warner Bros. TV-produced frosh laffer "Freddie." Skein has consistently built on its adults 18-49 lead-in since bowing last month.

*breaks down and cries*

This is bad. As sucky as the order-cut last year was, I wasn't TOO upset. Going from 20 to 18(or however it went) makes good business sense, when considering the cost to produce each episode, the lack of ratings, and the fact that the DVD set will sell just as well for just as much money without the two extra episodes.

But all the way down to 13 episodes? Bad bad bad news.

I am very sad. And the worst part is, I didn't like last week's Godzilla gag. For a good ten minutes after the episode ended, I was sitting there thinking "that whole jetpack thing was pretty cheesy...and why would Tobias hear that they wanted him to be a 'mole' and then literally dress up in a mole costume? Sure, the 'capturing' of George Sr. was pretty cute, but it's too much of a stretch. Not even Tobias is that dumb..." And then I hear this. It's like getting really mad at my best friend and then hearing that they have cancer and will die by the end of the year. And on top of that, I can't even see them for another month? What crap.

Also, when did Variety turn into a bunch of retards? Seriously, stop saying "skein"! And "laffer"? "Laffer"??? Please go kill yourself.

When I hear this, it reminds me of David Cross's rant on the special features of season 2. During one of the deleted scenes, he quite obviously goes after FOX for not doing hardly anything to promote the show and letting it waste away on the vine. It's a six-time Emmy award winning show which currently has an Oscar-winning actress guest starring. And why has none of this been mentioned in any advertisements?

But, anger aside, if the show hasn't caught on by now, there's no chance of changing it. Those things I mentioned above should have been done before the new season started. At this point, it's almost impossible to get new fans to the show. FOX sunk itself.

13 episodes is a terrible slap in the face. That means that those few people who do watch the show will be completely out of it for the final episodes. Think about it, there's been no real notification taht the show's not going to be on next week. That means all the people who tune into Fox for AD will be confused as what happened to it. I'm sure they won't give AD a regular timeslot now, which will only drive the ratings lower.

Oh well, there's still the DVDs.

And triple hopefully, FOX will rot in hell. Asshats.

No one has mentioned them shutting down shooting because Jason Bateman had throat surgery. Could that be why it's off until December? Not that it even matters.  frown

I think Bateman already had the throat surgery a few months ago. So I don't believe that's why FOX is not running AD during November.

Well, it was a good run. 3 seasons is two more seasons than a lot of people imagined AD would last. I personally am glad we had such a good show for so long. If people want to watch the Freddie Prinze Jr. show, well, they're freakin' idiots.

And I can't boycott FOX, because in the new year they'll show House and 24 back to back. But aside from that, the network is dead to me.

Nobodys throwing in the towel yet. CNN say a lot of things but it's not officially cancelled. Also Mitch mentioned he'll try to shop around with other networks. If you want to join the battle I'd hit the-op.com 's forum. I think a large mass of those fans were responsible for a season 3 even happening in the first place.

I love how every article that mentions this has a headline like "Arrested Development cancelled." See, cause I don't know about you, but that would make me think that from here on out, no more eps will be produced and/or shown. Nobody cancelled it... yet.

I think it's kinda like titling an article "Man battling cancer dies," then talking about how he WILL be dead pretty soon, but you know, it's a sure thing.

Yeah. And we'll always have our DVDs. *hugs evan* Hopefully season 3's DVD will be extra cheap. I always thought if AD miraculously got to 100 episodes, it'd find its audience in syndication.   tongue Oh well.

I think that the throat surgery actually only happened a week or two ago. Either way, he'd be out for two weeks minimum afterwards... Still, they would've filmed more than just the first 5 episodes at this point.

When Fox cancelled Grounded for Life, it was picked up by the WB, and it ended with the 92nd episode, now it's on syndication on ABCFamily.

So you never know, hopefully another show will realize AD's genius, and pick it up.

I appreciate the fact that you like the show, and want to do everything you can to bring it back, but online petitions don't work, they're impersonal, unlike handwritten ones, but I doubt anyone wants to take the time and effort to pass around a petition.
