Arrested Development

I hate how a show you start to get into and it becomes one of your favorite shows gets cancelled. Well Arrested Development was one of those shows. The plot revolves around the members of the Bluth family, who generally lead excessive lifestyles. The show centers around Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) who tries to keep his family intact after their father George Bluth Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor) was arrested for defrauding investors and gross spending of the company's money while at the same time trying to spend sometime with his son George Michael (Michael Cera). The show contains many other stars such as Jessica Waters who plays Michael's mother Lucille, Will Arnett plays Michael's older brother Gob, Porti de Rossi plays Michael's twin sister Lindsay. She has a husband Tobias who is played by David Cross and daughter Maeby played by Alia Shawkat. Tony Hale plays Buster, Michael's unstable younger brother. In my opinion, this show was really funny and even though I was still young at the time it was originally on the air, I still watched it and laughed my ass off at every episode. I was surprised it was cancelled because their was such a strong following and their was a lot of good responses from critics. I was happy to find out that the creator of the show Mitchell Hurwitx was in the process of writing up a script for a movie. But after awhile I didn't really hear anything about it coming out soon so I figured they shelved the idea. Until I heard Will Arnett announce that they are in the process of making a script. Earlier this year they announced that starting in 2013 on Netflix their will be new episodes of the show that will lead up to the premiere of the movie. Comment below if you were a fan of the show and are excited about the new episodes and movie or not. Also comment what shows did you like and were upset about when it was cancelled.
