Maybe with the exception of Elizabethtown....

I realize that baseball is important to a lot of people, but I miss my Arrested Development.

I need it back. Now more than ever, since I just finished watching the second season on DVD.

First of all, any television show or movie that casts Fern Mayo is gonna win me over.

The main reason I watch, however, is this man:


He's so dreamy.

But with such horrible ratings this season, I'm pretty certain this'll be the end of the show. And that's a shame, people.

On the DVD's blooper reel, David Cross put it best when speaking to some people from Fox:

"I got an idea for what you can do...why don't you fucking fire your complete marketing team, alright? Get a new one in there that knows how to market a show that won five motherfucking Emmys, Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards, Writers Guild Awards, Directors Guild Awards, Producers Guild Awards, Critics' Top Ten lists. You know, if you can't market that kind of show and get better ratings, then maybe the problem doesn't lie here. Maybe it lies with marketing. Good night."

I think the reason to watch is Jessica Harper, but that's just me.

And as for what David Cross said... eh. The sad fact of the matter is that Arrested Development simply isn't the kind of show most Americans want to watch. It should be noted that Fox has kept this going for three seasons now despite its abysmal ratings. What are they going to do? Market it like something it isn't? Perhaps they should do a commercial under which that annoying piano theme from Everybody Loves Raymond plays. Heads would perk up then.

Goddammit. Why do I keep doing that. Jessica Walter!

Fuck, all I know Jessica Harper from is Shock Treatment. I should have just blocked that movie out.

I have this problem where I can't find Jason Bateman attractive. I only find Michael Bluth attractive.This photograph does nothing for me. Put him in a suit.
