I don't recall ever seeing a thread here on Arrested Development and I feel as if it needs one, and since search is disabled for the moment, I decided to make one.
Arrested Development is the undisputed champion of sitcoms. Anyone who isn't a fan of the show, hasn't watched it yet. With a joke in every line of dialogue, it's quite easily the wittiest and most well written comedy to ever air on television. Having it's lifeline cut short by Fox, presumably due to the general population being too stupid to understand the humour, it wrapped up rather quickly after it's third season, Fox having ordered fewer episodes than originally planned.
The show is about the dysfunctional families to top all dysfunctional families. After Michael's father, head of the family's Bluth Corporation goes to prison for numerous crimes, Michael is left to take charge of his company, now officially being in charge of the rest of the oblivious family.
This is one of, if not my favourite sitcom of all time. If you haven't seen it, then what the fuck is wrong with you why aren't you watching it right now get to it.
And now, some fan service,

Go on, just start posting quotes. You know it's what you want to do.
One of the best shows of all time.
I just started watching this recently.
[B]THERE IS [I]ALWAYS[/I] MONEY IN THE BANANA STAND![/B]
I love this show so much. Can't wait for the film now that it seems to be actually making progress.

I think you should watch Spaced before making claims like that
I have watched Spaced it's not NEARLY as good

Man Spaced is amazing
It has like a million billion jokes that you won't get unless you watch it a few times though.
I've found the same with AD.
I've lost count at how many times I've watched through all 3 series, but I still noticed background jokes that I never did before.
Love this show. Lots of little jokes like how the lawyer hops over a shark, and he was the one who started the "jump the shark" thing.
Also Bob Loblaw's Law Blog :v:
I just started watching this show from the beginning the other week, it's fantastic. Sometimes the characters' stupidity actually pisses me off a bit lmao.

nah it's hilarious to watch other people be stupid
oh COME ON
yeah, the guy in the 3000 dollar suit is going to come on. COME ON
I recently watched every episode back to back. Before I had only seen a few episodes here and there when they were shown at 4 in the morning at one point. It's the best show anyone will see in a long time.
I'm suprised Ann wasn't given a bio in the OP.

Gob's sexual harassment speech was probably the funniest thing i've heard on tv
I remember watching this on G4 when i still had it on my cable. Amazing show.

Same, here. Including, still having the cable.
Amazing show. Probably too good for it's time, resulting in it being canceled. Can't wait for the movie though.
Tobias Fünke: Anal/rapist
The first few episodes of the show I didn't really like. But I know exactly where I started to love it.
It was when Buster whent on his Archealogical dig thing and their dusting the Teradactyl remains and he breaks the skull and says "That was like, 90% gravity...".
Damn. Well played.
That's a coincidence. I started watching this series some weeks ago. It's easily one of my favorite sitcoms.
Go TOBIAS GO
or you could've had her bio but (Not pictured)
yeah but then i wouldn't have been able to make that joke
