One of the best shows on television, and of course it was cancelled. I am still hoping for a movie.

I've probably watched this series a dozen times. It truly is television at its best. The dialogue is so quick, I catch a new joke every time. EVERY single line is clever and hilarious. Once upon a time, I heard rumours of a future film version...still in the works? We hope.

I watched the first five episodes of the first season yesterday - it was really funny and I am looking forward to watching the rest.

Every episode of Arrested Development is hilarious and witty.  I have seen the entire show  multiple times, (don't judge, cable wasn't an option until a couple months ago) , and it never gets old.  Each episode is more funny than the last.      The actors do a lot of improv, and I can't imagine how many takes they had to do for some scenes. Especially scenes with David Cross and Will Arnett, those two say some of the funniest lines …

I miss this show so much. Surprising how the children are the sane ones, everyone else is insane. Hope the movie doesn't let me down!
