I'm Back, with All That TV

Sorry I've been on an extended leave, but school and finals got pretty hectic, but I'm done! And I've seen this new, 30 day Television meme over at Encore Entertainment, and I decided to jump right on in because I've been on a TV kick recently. I'll be gone June 23rd-27th (vacation!) but I promise to give you reader(s?) a summer filled with posts.

Highlights may include (but are not limited to):

-Thoughts on the recently named Tony Award winning play, Red
-Thoughts on the recently named Tony Award winning musical revival, La Cage Aux Folles
-Television meme
-Oscar thoughts

So onto Day 1 of the Meme...

A Show That Should Have Never Been Canceled

Arrested Development was a cerebral little nugget of a show. My favorite character would have to be Portia de Rossi's dimwitted Lindsay, but legitimately everybody in the awesome ensemble gives her a run for her money. Hilarious guest stars (Henry Winkler! Charlize Theron! Liza Minnelli!) actually seemed to add to the show and were able to understand the series' beautiful, totally odd way of thinking. There were only three seasons (with the possibility of a movie that seems to never be happening), and each one is equally quirky. If you haven't seen it, some of the episodes are available on Hulu, but I totally recommend buying all three seasons blindly. You will not be disappointed.

What are your thoughts on Arrested Development?


  1. Gosh I love this show. Thanks for heads up on our sameness - I sense that our equivalent good taste will make us the best of friends. :)

  2. Every episode gives you a new reason to love it, doesn't it?

  3. Obviously, I'm missing something having not seen this.
