Axed Development


A friend loaned us Season One of "Arrested Development" this month, and Melissa and I were absolutely loving it. It's the world's most hillarious Non-Animated family. You can't go through two issues of Entertainment Weekly without them beating the drum, trying to get more people to watch it. I never really got to see the acting chops on Jason Bateman until this, and I really like his style. Amazing that Melissa and I can watch something together that's not anime, I know.

Then, halfway through the box set, we hear that Fox is cancelling the series at the end of the season.

To quote Dr. Evil..."Shit."

We finally find something on television that's actually worth watching, we borrow the forst season to bone-up on the backstory, and then it gets cancelled. Great. Figures. But, actor David Cross has a few ideas about the series' hard times that I think ring true.

  1. Don't worry, this has happened before - they've announced that this show was being cancelled at least 3 times before this, then changed their minds, so there's a good chance this isn't the final word.
