The Ultimate Irony: The critics love it and the audience hates it. Great show, although I seldom watch it anymore, I enjoyed when it was on before and after MITM.

The audiences dont hate it, its just they dont really know about it. Its in a bad timeslot to coincide with Monday Night Football.

It hasn't always coincided with MNF. I think the problem isn't that the audience doesn't know about it--rather they don't understand it! I missed one ep last year, for example, and suddenly Buster had a hook for a hand! Explain how that works out.

It's sort of an unwritten rule that MITM fans aren't AD fans and vice versa.

In UK it airs on BBC Four. I have only seen one episode - didn't really understand what was happening, but in this particular episode there was a recurring innuendo about the song "Afternoon Delight" which related to the plot. This was rather funny as it gave alternative perspective about what this means. However despite this, I doubt I would watch again unless it was the first episode...it's kind of been on too long now to play "catch up" and relate to the characters and scenario properly.

I haven't seen enough of the series to make a decision. I either love it or am bored by it.

It has a very random style that's very easy to screw up. Randomness is awesome! But, when something is random, it risks being so random that it's absurd, uninteresting and confusing. I think that's what happened with the Buseys in MitM.

You know, I quite honestly don't remember.

I liked Arrested Development and I dare say it has the best cast on TV at this time. They all play each other seamlessly and are always laugh out loud funny although I stopped watching after its timeslot changed from airing after MITM. I thought they were great companion shows. I watch too many shows as it is and this one, sadly, just didn't make the cut for my TV schedule.

Default Re: Frankie Muniz Going To Appear On Arrested Development

AD is hilarious. They had Andy Richter on last year as himself so I'm sure they'll be at the movie studio again. I don't think you have to watch it all from the first episode. The running jokes can still be laughed upon and the Narrator pretty much fills you up on anything plot-related. As for the audience, Two characters are teenagers and one character is like 70. It reaches a very broad audience.

P.S. Andy Richter's appearance was hysterical. He dropped a sandwich, got mad, and kicked it. LMAO.
