Well, final four of the season - nobody's saying that the series itself is offically over yet. But yes, they'll be airing on Friday, February 10, from 8:00pm to 10:00pm. If I lived in the US, I would totally abandon any plans I had that day just to watch... not that I'd ever HAVE any plans, but still...

Me too. I'll be recording and watching at the same exact time! I can't wait.

I'm going to go watch the complete first season on DVD now. Whatever happened to "Life on a Stick"?   big grin

I miss "Freaky Links".

I hope this thing with Showtime happens. I'd hate to be saying the same thing about "Arrested Development" in 3 years.

I did actually. Mostly because it ended the way the series started. The series almost seems complete.

George Bush doesn't care about black puppets!

Ahem.

Man, that was a great two hours.  I don't think I'll be able to rate the episodes individually, I'll just say that all were superb, but the first and fourth really stood out as I was watching them. I think the break-neck pace of the final four episodes (no doubt the result of trying to cram half a season of plot into four episodes) really made them outstanding. The joke density was amazing, there were a lot of blink-and-miss-them sight gags and callbacks (even without the final episode's near perfect echo of the pilot). I almost did a spit take at the Mr F style 'different!' music at the beginning of the second episode. The few jabs at their cancellation were pretty good as well (Buster's "I kind of like Skating With Celebrities" ).

The only thing I'm not too sure about is
 

I keep thinking of great jokes as I wait for my internet connection to stabilize so I can post this (BTW if this posts multiple times, it isn't my fault). I'm still cracking up about that stupid little 'different!' sting.

All in all, I feel quite satisfied, but I still would love to see more. The mark of a perfect 'likely series ending but we hope only a season ending' ending.

Oh man, I feel so many emotions now... it was rushed but it was like the best rushed show ever.

Can't wait for the movie or another series.
Showtime vs. ABC... FIGHT!

Out of all of the perverse, taboo things discussed in last night's episodes, why is it that the joke that most disturbed me involved

There's probably a lot more I want to get into, but I need to wait until the episodes are finished downloading. All I can say is that if this truly is the end of the show, it went out on a very high note.

Still a hilarious episode and great that they've refreshed the show just incase they come back, they'd be able to make a fresh start with new plots.

I loved the reference to that movie (Steve Martin or Tom Hanks, wasn't it?) where he slides in in his socks wearing a shirt, underpants and shades... the way they did it in reverse order was clever.  big grin

I think they did a great job of covering their bets either way.  If this really was the end of the series, then we couldn't have asked for a better one.  On the other hand, if the show does continue in some form, there's plenty of material left to work with.

question...did anyone notice that the orange hand from Buster's room that was given to Lupe was somehow back in the Bluth's possession? what's with that...or did i miss something in an earlier episode

also...


i can't wait for season 3 on dvd!     big grin

and btw, what was the name of tht off-network teen drama they censored? Veronica Mars? or was it a movie. and FOX owned UPN channel 13, something happened recently though and now it isn't called UPN anymore. I think it joined with ktla channel 5. of course this is just relevant to the LA/OC area...

also, I don't like Jason Bateman's appearance in te last 4 episodes. His hair was messy and he looked a bit pudgier, like how he looked in his guest star appearance on Scrubs

We may have seen that oldschool photo of George Snr opening the Banana Stand (cutting the ribbon) before that last episode, can anyone confirm this?
Probably in the flashback of the origins of the Banana Stand when George Snr set it up... forget what episode.

It would be awesome if Annyongs grandpa was in the background too, so early in the show!    big grin

It's a red hand and it's explained in a season 2 episode.

On the next arrested development: Buster regain his old hand but the victory is short lived *Lucille and Oscar are having sex on his hand*
Buster: Make love in your own hand mother!

Can anybody agree with me that Franklin is the best puppet character on television?



"I don't need none of yo' tired-ass country club, ya freak bitch!"

As soon as I saw him return for the final four I knew it was going to be good.

Narrator: In an effort to "hip" up his act, Gob had briefly introduced a puppet.
[Gob is acting as a black puppet named Franklin in front of the family]
Gob: [as Franklin] Can I tell you something, my man?
Gob: [as himself] Sure, Franklin.
Gob: [as Franklin] You are one cool
mother [bleep]
Gob: [as Franklin] Speaking of mothers, let me give that oatmeal some brown sugar.
[the puppet 'kisses' Lucille]
George Sr.: Get off my wife, you bastard!
[strangles Franklin]
Gob: [as Franklin] What's the matter with you?
Gob: [in the present] Franklin said some things Whitey wasn't ready to hear.
Michael: Gob, weren't you also mercilessly beaten outside of a club in Torrance for that act?
Gob: He also said some things that African-American-y wasn't ready to hear either.
