Well, it DID air, everyone at The OP's commenting on it at the moment. Just wait for a torrent to come up, one should be available soon. Aparentally Making a Stand was uploaded within an hour of it airing.

It was and it is.

4/5. Pretty good episode. It would have been funnier if Tobias found out about Maebys career and took advantage of the situation.

Absolutely hilarious. The 3D gags, "you could charm the black off a telegram boy", making fun of I Love The 70's, the live ending. The pathetic pleading from Ron Howard. Andy Richter's brothers--it was really non-stop funniness.

Hey guys, I've heard of this new thing called sarcasm. Here, let me try it: "boy am I glad they're cancelling this show!". Not bad, eh?

Lovely ep. I haven't been able to re-watch it my usual 8 dozen times 'cause the tape I recorded it on is funked up. Roar.

Yeah, I didn't quite get it myself. I guess it's sort of like reverse psychology? I don't know...I just overheard some middle school kids using it at the mall and figured I'd try it out.

Pffft. That's the last time I copy middle schoolers and their stupid little fads. I mean, what's next? Wearing baseball caps backwards?

No - ABC and Showtime are currently in discussion with Arrested Development's producers about picking up the show, but nothing's been officially announced yet.

With these rumblings about Futurama possibly coming back due to DVD sales and ratings on Adult Swim just like Family Guy, I figured out what will happen to Arrested Development...

Fox will cancel the show and it will go on a hiatis for about 3 years.  TBS will show reruns where the ratings will go up, which will then boost the DVD sales.  After about a year of rumors going around Fox will finally bring back Arrested Development and give it a decent time slot.

So long for now AD, see you in 2009.

Did anyone happen to see on Adult Swim in between commercials it mentioned Arrested Development and it said, "Maybe we should pick it up.  We've pulled FOX shows out of the trash before, like Family Guy".  I swear this is true! 

I would like Arrested Development, if it weren't for those stupid teenagers on the show.

KP2K1...it was a joke. They at AS like the show, so therefore they'd like to see it continue. There's obviously no way the show could be on Cartoon Network.

George-Michael and Maeby are perhaps two of the best teenage characters on tv, probably because they're portrayed as actual teenagers, not 35 year olds pretending to be cool.

Michael: "Why don't you pitch a tent out front with your cousin Maeby?"
George-Michael: "What?"
Maeby: "Oh, I'm not really the camping type."
Michael: (to G.M.) "Well, now's your chance to rub off on her...."

I would like you if it weren't for your gay username, all the stupid off-topic posts you make, the fact that you point out the obvious on so many threads, the fact that you constantly go on about your dreams or your family in threads that have nothing to do with them, all the shitty threads you start that get closed and the fact that you're a useless retard who nobody wants around.

And Michael Cera and Alia Shawkat are great, what the hell are you talking about? I'd rather have a realistic and interesting character of a teenager who's relatable and funny than an annoying bratty teenager like in most shows.

Meh, that one loses something when it's typed.

I just finished up season 2, and I must say, my favourite episode so far was "Good Greif". Best one episode running joke ever.

Good Grief is a great episode... With a lot of Season 2 though, episodes seem a bit rushed and strange the first time you watch them, and you can't really appreciate them until you've re-watched them multiple times. That was the case with quite a few episodes, namely The One Where They Build a House and Amigos.

My favourite Season 2 episodes are Good Grief, Spring Breakout and The Righteous Brothers. Ready, Aim, Marry Me is severely underrated, too. "To the nuts!"

yeah I agree. when I first saw the kids on this show i was surprised because the girl wasn't the average anorexic dyed blonde actress that you normally see on shows (only her mom is hehe). i like her funky hair it suits her i think.

i do have a minor annoyance with her pics on the season 2 dvd. whereas the other actors were portraying themselves on the dvd cover, it seemed like the actress that plays maeby was portraying more of herself than the actual character of maeby. did anyone feel that? i think she looked great on the season 1 dvd cover though. when did they take those pics for the dvd covers?

i also love Good Grief. great episode   laff

btw, anyone notice how Arrested isn't on next Monday?  mad It is being replaced with the 2 hour season premiere of 24...I understand that show has a lot of viewers...but sorry I'd take Arrested over 24 any day...

AD's now become a "backup show" for Fox, meaning they'll only put it on when they've got nothing else. I wouldn't expect to see the last 4 episodes any time soon... Although oddly enough, word on The O.P. forums has it that a key grip for the show says that proudction on a new season will be beginning in July. Here's the thread, make of it what you will...

And Randi, I don't know about Season 2, but I think the Season 1 cover pictures were taken from a promotional image they did for the show with all 9 characters standing in a mock police line-up. Here's a wallpaper of it.

If by a "Good Grief" styled avatar, you mean one of the sad Peanuts walks from that episode, then yes, quite a few people have those. Though my avatar is officially the greatest.  love

Anyway, news on the last 4 episodes of Season 3: Fox will be airing them as a 2-hour long special on Friday, February 10.

This year, the series received 11 Emmy nominations and won for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series. In 2004, the show received five Emmy Awards, for Outstanding Comedy Series, Writing, Directing, Casting and Editing. Earlier this year, Jason Bateman won a Golden Globe for Outstanding Actor in a Leading Role – Musical or Comedy, and the show was nominated for Outstanding Musical or Comedy Series two years in a row. Last season, the cast was also nominated for a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT also took home the TCA Award for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy two years in a row, was named an AFI Program of the Year and received the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Comedy, among other accolades.

ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT comes from Imagine Television and 20th Century Fox Television. Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, David Nevins and Mitchell Hurwitz are executive producers.

4 new eps in one night? That is way too much awesomeness.

$5 says that's all the advertising they'll do for it.

FOX: "Beamer, go post this on peel."
Beamer: (mouthful of peanut butter sandwich) "Okay!"
FOX: *slaps a "Stacked" sticker on Beamer's ass* "Good boy."

How the fuck should I know? I haven't been there long, I don't really know any of the admins or anything. Just register again, Good Grief is a shitty username anyway. Call yourself T-Bag!

And I heard about that interview, though apparentally Will said he was just referring to it in past tense since shooting had wrapped up. There's still no guarantee of cancellation, remember - both ABC and Showtime HAVE made offers to air a fourth season if they make one... Keep in mind that the production company will still be Fox, but TV marketing will go to whichever station picks it up, though it's still a matter of whether or not Fox decides to sell the show - they can't do so until it's cancelled though, and they don't have to officially cancel it until May. We could have a long wait on our hands...  frown

Has anyone seen the "Stacked" promos where the fat actress calls it a smart comedy? Yes, I know what you're thinking, "Oh, that's nice. She's talking About Arrested Development in a Stacked promo?" No! She's talking about Stacked! I want to cut off one of her stomachs and shove it in her mouth. Blah. Rot.

Obviously "Stacked" is a smart comedy. It's set in a bookstore! It's so smart becuase the term "stacked" refers to "stacks of books" but is also American slang for a woman with large breasts! Get it!

The Chicago Tribune seems to think that Fox saying it's the season finale instead of the series finale means there's still hope for AD.

We can always get them with the:
"But you said season finale, not series finale! MWAAHAHAHAHA, NOW YOU HAVE TO ORDER A NEW SEASON!!"  laff

Fox: Awwww! Damned typo!  frown

Everyone: *rejoices*  big grin

From TV Barn:
TelevisionWeek (from which I also stole the headline) is reporting that both ABC and Showtime have offered the producers of "Arrested Development" deals to continue the series on their networks. And it's all above board because when Fox reduced this season's order from 22 to 13 episodes, "the reduction triggered a clause in the show's contract enabling producers to shop the series elsewhere," sayeth TVWeek. The producers are said to be "mulling both offers," a one-year deal from ABC and a two-year deal from Showtime, part of the CBS family.

Good news, to say the least.
