I’m a few days late to this, but i have to say i’m more than a little worried about this whole new season of AD thing. What we got was pretty much perfect. Why can’t people be happy with that?
MY OFFICIAL STATEMENT ON THE SUBJECT OF ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, APPROVED FOR PUBLICATION:
I agree that the show had pretty much exactly the run it needed to have and generated the results for its cast that it absolutely deserved to. And I am not at all confident that the new stuff will be anywhere NEAR on the level of what they accomplished before. BUT they’re all talented people swinging for the fences, and I am never going to argue against that, and I will happily watch them go for it. Even if they blow it, and blow it spectacularly (which is an extremely plausible outcome), the original series will still be funny as hell.
