It destroyed my whole worldview.

Tonight is the premiere of Season 3 of “Arrested Development.” As you know, and as this thread explains, I’m all caught up … on Season 1. The Hamakers’ summer-long TV-fast prevented me from watching the rerun block of Season 2 episodes, so I’m in the dark.
The TV guide description of tonight’s episode indicates that Jason Bateman’s character goes off in search of his father. So, is his dad out of jail?
These, and other key details, are left to you to reveal. Or, if you’d rather leave me hanging in the breeze, I can simply rely on the voiceover narration at the beginning of tonight’s episode.
But you care enough to help a brutha’ out, don’t you?

Gob: May be Steve Holt!'s father.
George Michael: Dating Ann (girl at the banana stand in the last episode of season one); kissed Maeby.
Maeby: Unknown to anyone, left school to become a studio executive; made remake of Les cousins dangereux (the movie she and G.M. tried to sneak into in season 1); kissed George Michael.
Tobias: Left Lindsay to run off with Kitty to Vegas, where he is trying to join the Blue Man Group.
Lindsay: Other than the above, little change.
Buster: Got left hand bitten off by a seal; found out who his true father is.
Michael: Still running the company.
George, Sr.: Turned himself in to the police after a year on the lam, but switched places with Oscar after knocking out Oscar and shaving his head.
Oscar: In prison in George, Sr.'s place; trying to convince prison officers that he's Oscar and not George, Sr.; inadvertently outed himself as Buster's actual father.
Lucille: Sleeping with Oscar, except, y'know, obviously not right now.
Marc Cherry: Claims "Desperate Housewives" is a satire.

It's suddenly become clear to me.

All that to say, I have recently started watching "Arrested Development" on DVD. Adore it. Hilariously sardonic. Have netflixed the remainder of season one and all of season two (due out at the beginning of October)... and lament the fact that, like all the television series my husband and I love, we came to this one too late to keep up with it properly. "Arrested Development" waits for no one, whether they get FOX or not.

I believe I [heart] "AD" more than any show ever.

I really hope FOX keeps this show on the air.

Ah, so that explains last night's 8:30 episode. I had no idea. I really do need to watch Season 2.

And if there's a better character than GOB in an American sitcom, I'll eat my hat.

I'll drink to that! Among other, more subtle character traits, I love his magician voice. And the accompanying music. (This morning, my husband was tossing a pair of socks around as if he were juggling them, and he totally had that low-riding, backward-leaning, pelvis-thrust-out posture Gob usually assumes when doing a trick... so I started chiming in Gob's magician soundtrack. )

Me, I'm trying hard to get his chicken dance down right.
Posted 08 November 2005 - 03:50 PM
Yup, that's the song... I couldn't remember the name.
I love how everyone in the family apparently has their own chicken dance. Lindsay's busted it out before, and I was absolutely delighted to discover midway through the second season that Lucille has one, too.

You'll be happy to know that, following last night's episode, they all also have a Godzilla impression.
