"Arrested Development"? Does Anyone Watch?

Last night the second season began. I enjoy the show (the only one on a network I watch), but I get the feeling the audience is sparse. Critics dig it, though. I'm curious if anyone else follows the Bluth family, watched it once and hated it, or whatever...

I think it's one of the best-written sitcoms out there right now, clever, topical, and very funny. At least it made it to a second season. I hope it lasts.

I love this show.

Every once in awhile when ever I need a laugh I think of the episode last season where Buster was at his school who's motto was "Children should neither be seen nor heard." He then spent the rest of the episode camouflaging himself into different backgrounds... freaking hilarious

Agreed about how good a show it is. I just read that the first show this season had decent ratings. I just hope it's not so quirky that people are put off by it.

I enjoy it, in part, because it subverts the normal "feel good" nature of sit coms.

It is one show that actually makes me laugh out loud. My wife didn't like it when it first came out but she would watch it with me. She likes it now.

As disfunctional as that family is I think we can all see a little bit of our own family in them... and allows us to laugh at it. I think that is one reason I like it.

This is a sad day indeed.

I just heard Arrested Development is being cancelled. Word on the street is that they are going to show what episodes they have and then that is it.

This will officially go down as the best show that never made it.

It was too quirky and rarely (never?) had any feel-good moments. Which was made it good, but I guess audiences like their sit coms warm 'n' fuzzy...

That is why I liked it too.

I talked to a few people who came in mid-season and just never really picked up on what was so funny. I think you had to watch it from the beginning in order to "get it" and the show never really did a good job of acclimating new viewers.

For what it's worth, I enjoyed it too, and I don't watch a whole lot of network series.

I"m so bummed this was cancelled, hopefully it will be like the Family Guy and either get brought back after a successful DVD run or get picked up by another network.

It is one of the best on TV b/c it's not all laugh-tracked out for those who need the cues, it's funny and sarcastic and smart - wish there were more like it!

Arrested Development is a thought based comedy. There are so many jokes that are inside jokes for die hard fans.
