Oh, c’mon now, people! ’Arrested Development’ is the BEST comedy-soap opera since ’Soap’ itself! I (((always))) said the concept of ’Soap’ could be done again and successfully if it has the right original concept, cast and of course, writing. Well, Fox has delivered ALL this with A.D. The critics completely back this show 100%. So WHY isn’t it a top 30 show???!!! I know, I know— you pretty much have to get in on the ground floor, it being a on-going storyline show... but THAT’S what DVD is for! Having such an ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT show like this cancelled would be like saying, "oh, let’s cancel ’Seinfeld’ or ’Friends’ because it didn’t catch on during IT’S first year!". I admit, when I was thinking of "the next ’Soap’-like hit", I was thinking it would be more like the typical soundstage/studio-audience/3 camera sitcom that has been the staple of network primetime, but ’Malcolm In The Middle’ broke down that 4th wall successfully, and I couldn’t imagine ’Arrested Development’ being anything BUT the way it’s made today!

Arrested Development is without a doubt the FUNNIEST show on television. The most entertaining bunch of characters to ever come together. Jason Bateman is awesome!!!!

This show is great for serialization. If you miss one episode, or 13 or 14 like I have, you can jump right back in, and the show still makes sense. While somethings won’t, most things do, since they deal with the episode itself.

this show is a stroek of pure comedic genius and anyone who thinks otherwise (while i respect free speech and personal opinions) there’s definitely something wrong with you if you dont see it.....
