It's Time To Finish The Party We Started Three Years Ago
I don't think there has been a better comedy than Arrested Development in the last five years. Tonight's two hour swan song was perfect--all except for the finality of the last half hour.
I was going to "liveblog" it, but I realised that would probably be too pathetic. Even for me.
Highlights, off the top of my head (And yes there are Spoilers, Miss B.)
--Franklin's T-Shirt in the first half hour: "George Bush Doesn't Understand Black Puppets"
--Franklin's arms, shrunken in the wash.
--Judge Reinhold and William Hung
--Pete Rose, sliding headfirst into second base, over and over again
--The Holy Trinity gag, and its awesome conclusion
--The Skip's Scramble celebration buffett
--The C Word
There are so many I can't list them all. But I've got the suckers TiVo'd and will be watching them over and over again.
I was sure hopeful for Showtime's resurrection pass, but the last half hour kind of seemed pretty well wrapped up. I think this may be the end. I'll have to be satisfied with never knowing what happened to Baby Buster and the Loose Seal.
