Arrested Development

I realize that I am really behind the times with this, but I LOVE Arrested Development. Sierra tried to show it to me a long time ago (when I was down with un-diagnosed mono) and I couldn't get into it back then. I am guessing that it was either that I was too tired and sick to appreciate the brilliant humor, or that I was too into The Office at the time (and the humor types are very so different that it takes some adjustment to swap from one to the other). Oh, or it could be that I was sexually frustrated (she wouldn't kiss me. I was going crazy...)

Anyway, I just finished watching the final episode (after going through them from beginning to end) and I am so sad that this show was canceled. It is an outrage. A crime against nature. We must do something about getting a film made (and by "we" of course I mean "Mitchell Hurwitz, Ron Howard, and the cast).

Just for fun, here is someone's Top-Ten list of inside jokes that they feel should be included in the film without any explanation at all as to why they are there (in the film of course, as all of them refer back to jokes from the show). Go and enjoy.

Update: I found a petition that any who desire and are willing can sign to show support for the film and/or the return of the show (fat chance people). Who knows if it will help or not, but it can't hurt can it? Maybe...
