Hey guys, earlier I reported on Community returning which, to remind you airs tomorrow evening at 8 eastern. Another show that will be returning soon is a show I love and personally watch in it’s entirety at least once a year and that is Arrested Development. I am a huge fan of the show and have been watching for news constantly. I watched this video a few weeks ago and found it very informing and greatly entertaining.
Arrested Development was a breakthrough comedy that changed the way comedy was perceived and how it works as a medium. A lot of shows took cues from Arrested Development and it led an evolution in the industry. There are very few shows out there that are successful that haven’t taken a few plays from their book. Shows like Community and 30 Rock follow a similar pattern and shooting style as Arrested Development.
Arrested Development left the air several times because of poor rating which, if you read my post on Community, you will hopefully recall that ratings aren’t always reliable. Arrested Development served a college audience which is not measured by Nielson but, despite ratings, won a slew of awards in its first season and continued to do so into its third and final season.
Now, I won’t go on further about my love of the show but, I do invite you to watch the clip below if you are a fan. Here they talk about the show and the ten episode return of the show as well as the film that will accompany it.If you aren’t a fan of this show, please check it out. It is one of the best that was ever on tv.
