Arrested Development


It remains the victim of one of the most criminal cancellations ever (perhaps behind only Freaks and Geeks and Firefly) — as in: Arrest and jail the faceless suit(s) who sucker-punched the not insignificant amount of us Bluth fiends by canceling the show after just three seasons … and (intentionally?) terrible marketing and promotion. OK, I’m still a tad bitter, but with a little luck, TV’s funniest, looniest family will be back soon enough — only this time the Bluths would be appearing on the big screen, and creator Mitchell Hurwitz would be free to deliver what he probably wanted to during those three tumultuous seasons. Here’s hoping the neo-Arrested Development makes our Best Movies list next decade, or just makes it to theaters.
