  1. Why are you taking it so seriously, Lionne? Why does it have such a negative hold on you?
  2. YES! MORE ARSE SLAPPING PLEEEEEEASE See? It's called having fun.
  3. "When I was a kid, slavery was the cool thing to do, and women couldn't vote. Those were the days!!" Hahaha, some people crack me up
  4. My thoughts exactly! There's no reason to be a Debbie or Duncan downer about an episode before the episode even airs. That's silly non-sense, that is!
  5. MJ, I LOVE YOUR NEW AVATAR!!! Moving right along, it saddens me when people start complaining about an episode before it even airs. Why be such a pessimist?
  6. ^That was too long for me to read, but I do believe you
  7. Just saw a preview for the next episode with Newhart and Bill Nye. Me = EXCITED!!!!! This season just keeps getting better and better!
  8. Even though I'm not disappointed with Season 7, I am disappointed with Geniocrat's posts, so maybe that counts too?
  9. I don't know what my favourite Bernie and Howie scene is, but the last 15 seconds or so of this one is definitely up there for me: When the smoke alarm goes off and Bernie offers to hoist Howie up there instead of the other way around. Cracks me up everytime! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHmhCXwBkEQ
  10. It won an Emmy for best comedy series. I can't help it if it was a great show with a large cast. I don't make the rules
  11. Use all the winky faces ya want, AD is a critically acclaimed sitcom. Everyone that's a true fan of the show knows why it didn't last longer than 3 seasons on Fox. The critics loved it, and fans who watch it in reruns love it. So, yes, using a critically acclaimed half hour sitcom that had such a mass following that it ended up coming back for another season (and possibly more) on Netflix is a very good example to use...IMHO. ETA: This is from the show's wiki page: Throughout its original run, Arrested Development received overwhelming critical acclaim.[2] It is widely regarded as one of the defining comedies of the 2000s and has been praised by many critics as one of the greatest comedies of all time.[83][84] In 2007, the show was listed as one of Time magazine's "100 Best TV Shows of All-TIME."[3] Tim Stack of Entertainment Weekly praised the series, saying "Is it beating a dead horse to once again state that this underappreciated gem is the best sitcom on TV? Too bad. Arrested Development is the best sitcom on TV!"[85] David Bianculli from the New York Daily News stated "If you're not watching this series on Fox, the least you can do is buy it on DVD. You'll love it, and it's such a dense show (in the best sense of the word) that it rewards repeated viewing. Like Scrubs and the British version of The Office, it is the sort of show that truly deserves to be seen uninterrupted, several episodes at a time, for maximum enjoyment. The laughs-per-minute quotient here is insanely high, making it great value as a home library purchase."[86] Alison Powell of The Guardian said "As Hollywood agents worry about the demise of the town's lowing cash cow, the multi-camera, staged sitcom, here to save the day is Arrested Development, a farce of such blazing wit and originality, that it must surely usher in a new era in comedy."[87] Gillian Flynn of Entertainment Weekly named Arrested Development the best television show of 2005 and said in her review that "As oddball as Arrested is, it's also humane. A flawless cast—from Will Arnett's breathy, bombastic Gob to Jessica Walter's boozy Lucille—grounds it, aided by Ron Howard's affable narration. Of course, the center of sensibility is good son Michael (Jason Bateman) and his even better son, George Michael (Michael Cera). Bateman and Cera give the best reacts around—the former all weary exasperation, the latter adorably bunny-stunned. Together, they're the sweetest, awkwardest straight men on the smartest, most shockingly funny series on TV...which is likely canceled, despite six Emmy wins. It's a perversion not even the Bluths deserve."[88] In 2012, Entertainment Weekly listed the show at No. 2 in the "25 Best Cult TV Shows from the Past 25 Years," praising its "fast, delirious, interlocking jokes that don't pander to the masses; winky gags (e.g. fake preview scenes for the following week's episode); and a cast of absurd characters."
  12. Arrested Development has 9 cast members, so it's perfectly reasonable to think that adding one more character to this show wouldn't necessarily take away the quality of it. I know it seems scary to some, but not to all.
  13. To be fair, my wife started going spoiler free before Koops did, and I could no longer handle all the stares and snarky remarks, so I decided to join her. But I'm not bitter.
  14. Hahaha, no. Maybe that's the case for some people, but definitely not all. Nice guess though
  15. I, too, have decided to go spoiler free. I don't think I'm an addict, so hopefully this will be a smooth transition. Find out soon enough! ETA: Going spoiler free...starting NOW.
  16. Does Sheldon talk like that in the real world? I don't know if I'd believe that one or not.
  17. *sings* Sha-la-la-la-la-la my, oh, my! Look like the boy too shy, he ain't gonna kiss the girl...
