I can't believe that this awesome show doesn't have it's own thread (it.. doesn't, right? I searched the forum with no result so o_o; ).



The show got cancelled, but fans will always love this show. Show your AD love!

Plot summary:
"Michael Bluth, a widower with a 13-year-old son, named George-Michael, is forced to keep his large and dysfunctional family together after his father is arrested for shifty accounting practices at the family-owned conglomerate and the Bluth family assets are frozen, making each member of the eccentric family panicing. Michael's snobbish mother, Lucille, finds herself living alone in a penthouse without the financial means to maintain it, while Michael's two brothers, GOB and Buster, and his sister Lindsay with her husband Tobias and her daughter Mae also find themselves having to recreate their lifestyles to fit their new financial status."

As boring as that plot summery may sound, those who have watched and followed the show know that this show is filled with a humor unmatched by any other show. The situations, character and story-telling, I personally love it all. How about you? Share your favourite quotes, rant about favourite episodes and bitch about the cancelling of the show! :D

In short, discuss and share the love! XD

Yeah, I was bummed when they cancelled it. Just as I was watching a shitload of "Arrested Development" since I latched onto the series earlier last year. GENIUS. a bit of narration and that documentary style camera, Jason Bateman is solid in his role. And good to see Portia de Rossi be hot. Works so well with the supporting cast being so fuckin weird.

I must say though...strange they replaced Marta with a more latino looking model:



Leonar Varela >>> Patrica Velesaquez <3

Hee~ If I remember correctly, they replace Marta three or four times during the show XD. I didn't notice until they talked about it on the commentary track for one of the episodes (season 1 dvd FTW)

As bummed as I am about the canceling, I do feel that the very last episode was really good. It was a perfect ending and there wasn't really any way to pick up the show after that. I appreciated that they did that rather than doing a sort of open ending, teasing the fans with hope that there may come more later.

I'm always skeptical. Also, they still don't have anywhere to air it, so it could still fall through. I know they were looking into IFC and Netflix though.

CONFIRMED Arrested Development!!!! from some reunion fest thing by the New Yorker.


everyone supposed to be back! been rewatching the seasons KAKADOOODLEDOOOO. drop your favorite moments! what do you want to see?? NEVER NUDE XD

The new season of "Arrested Development" is expected to appear on Netflix, perhaps all at once, sometime in early 2013 (April?). Some rumors have pegged that date as occurring sometime in the spring, but we will have to wait for further confirmation. Series creator Mitch Hurwitz has previously said that the planned 10 episodes may not be enough to tell the stories they want to and that more episodes could be added.

walk on contest!!


featured on EW



SPOILER ALERT!!

Michael Cera On His New “Arrested Development” Role

Quote
“Mitch mentioned to me coming in [to the writer’s room] one day, and I was very excited that he had invited me,” Cera told MTV. “I went in, and he said, ‘Come back tomorrow,’ and I kept coming back because I really wanted to stick around until I integrated with them … It was a very small room this year. It was only like five guys. It was really fun and friendly and not too intimidating. There were a few days where there were 10 guys in there. I was like ‘Woah.’ I felt kind of in over my head … Then he just asked me if I wanted to actually come on and actually work there. It was a nice gift from him to me.”
