In what’s being described as the awesomest thing to happen EVER, reports from the U.S. suggest that a movie of the brilliant TV show Arrested Development is close to being made. Creator Mitch Hurwitz and producer Ron Howard (who also narrated the show) have settled on a deal to make a big-screen version.
My love for this show is only beaten by my bafflement as to why the show was a ratings failure. Really, people, stop watching dross like American Idol and X Factor and start watching stuff like this. (Except you can’t because it isn’t shown anymore. Ha! That’s your punishment.)
You know, I bet Barack Obama watches Arrested Development. It’s probably his favourite show. Or maybe second favourite, behind Flight of the Conchords. Totally. He strikes me as that kind of guy.
Here’s a bunch of characters doing “The Chicken Dance”.
P.S. The title of this post is the dialogue from my favourite clip of the programme. It may not seem like much in written form – but go buy the first series and watch it.
