Maybe I'll take the plunge. At least it has Portia de Rossi in it!  grrrrr baby, very grrrr....

She's a lesbian. You know that, right? Which I thought was all the more hilarious in Tobias and Lindsay's relationship.

I've probably watched every episode at least 13 times and own every season on DVD. Next to MST, it is my favorite show of all time. They brought meaning to the phrase "ensemble cast." You couldn't pick a single actor out of that show to give an award to, you had to give one to them all. I am sad that there were no more episodes(I checked up regularly to see if they were moving to Showtime). But it is one of the most rewatchable shows out there, right next to Firefly and The Office. I could never get sick of it.

Oh and Kodiak, trust me, go out and rent the first season (around $12) or buy it(around $20 and much better choice) and move on from there. Unlike most other sitcoms out there, watching Arrested Development is like reading a really good book. You can't jump in and read bits and pieces of a good book, or you will never understand it. Same case with AD. So next payday, give yourself a treat and go buy it.

Oh yes, was well aware of it. I think she's going out with Ellen DeGeneres right now...

Doesn't mean I can't ogle her!!  ;D

Not much to ogle when she's a surfboard. ;D AD joke. Now you have to buy season 2.

I still like NewsRadio.  There was a show that was way ahead of its time.  It might still be on if Phil Hartman was alive.

The last great ensemble sitcom. Underrated and unfairly forgotten.

AD is the best canceled show still on TV.

Too bad it never found its audience until it was too late.

It followed the path of the Firefly, that's for sure. Let's just hope it continues the path towards the possible movie mentioned by Ron Howard at the very end of the very last episode.

Now you've blown the ending for everything... nice use of the spoiler tag! ;)

Well, according to forum member "schwarzy65":

"I hate to bring everyone down, 'cause I'd love an Arrested Development movie as much as the next fan, but this isn't it. This is definately unrelated to the TV show. Google "Johnny Rosenthal Arrested Development", and you'll get your answers.

The source here (http://www.hollywood.com/movies/fulldetail/id/3462972) says it's a comedy starring Matthew McConaughey. "An over-the-hill undercover narc goes to make his last big bust at a local high school - all the while fooling no one, as he's a 30-year-old among teenagers."

It's reiterated on a bunch of other sites, including here (http://www.countingdown.com/movies/3230295), where it says, "An over-the-hill narcotics officer faces life outside the high school corridor when he hits the department's mandatory retirement age of 30. Oblivious to the fact that he no longer looks 18, he goes undercover one more time in the town's most prestigious high school."

There are a few more sites I've seen confirming this. So sorry to those of you who got your hopes up, but the Bluths aren't back just yet."
