Arrested Development

People who know me claim (erroneously), that I’m prone to hyperbole, which is ridiculous. However, I do want to make this one, modest claim:

Arrested Development is the funniest show in the history of all television.

I kid you not. It’s redefined comedy for me. I want to take this moment to apologize for not watching it when it was on. I’ve made a huge mistake.

I just finished watching the entire series on Hulu. I started three months or so ago, and worked through every one of the 53 episodes, finishing up tonight. I’m so sad that it’s over, but so happy I finished it.

Here’s what made it so utterly brilliant.

Do yourself a favor – go over to Hulu and just start watching. Without commercials and the end credits, episodes are only about 20 minutes, so it’s not a huge time commitment.

The very first episode will hook you just as soon as Lindsey sees some guy on the gay protest boat wearing a blouse like hers and you find out how it got there. Trust me on this.
