We’re Not Here To Talk Nonsense To Bob Loblaw.

by

As disappointing as it is to hear of the near demise (as it technically isn’t cancelled) of Arrested Development, no one can be shocked by this latest in a series of dumb moves by the mouth-breathing subretards at FOX.  This is the most acclaimed show on that network, so they move it out of the comfy cleavage that is formed by the Simpsons and Family Guy.  That middle spot between them is the perfect time slot for Arrested.  But instead, they put a show about mouth-breathing subretards, starring mouth-breathing subretards, aimed specifically at the mouth-breathing subretard demographic.   Which is what I thought Extreme Makeover: Home Edition was for.

Instead, they put AD as the lead-in for the very unfunny, OZ-lite,  Prison Break  show.  A program so unbelievably implausible, that it makes the CSI franchise look like COPS.   I haven’t seen too much of it and don’t get what all the fuss is about.  It seems to have become a hit, but is not a good companion piece for Arrested Development.

So here’s what you are going to do FOX, you will yank that idiotic War at Home off the air,  apologize to the poor  woman who has been forced to pretend to be married to Michael Rapaport, put Arrested back in the Sunday lineup and nobody gets hurt.  Understand?

In other Sunday night news, Titus Pullo is the biggest badass in the Roman Empire.  If you aren’t watching Rome because it is on opposite the increasingly lame Desperate Housewives, you shouldn’t be allowed to own a television.

P.S.  Reruns of Extras are still funnier than new episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    You are so right. Such a good show gone. Such a bad one in its place. “The War at Home,’ isn’t even a good “Married…” knock off. I have yet to finish one show of it after watching the Simpsons.

  2. Mephistophocles Says:

    I dunno – maybe they just realize that the majority of their demographic is, well, mouth-breathing subretards. I mean, what the hell, if you can sell nothing instead of substance, why not? It’s cheaper and there’s an unlimited supply.

  3. Sarcastro Says:

    One of the articles linked above does mention the high production cost involved in producing Arrested Development. The War at Home is able to keep costs low by paying Michael Rapaport in Cheetos and weed.

    Did someone say Cheetos and weed?

    Mmm. Cheetos and weed…

    Titus Pullo.If I weren’t happily married, I’d apply for the rights to be Mrs. Pullo. Hmmm.As far as AD goes, we all know that I’m about as crushed as crushed gets.

    Many dittos on the Extras/Enthusiasm observation.

    I sadly have to agree with your assessment of ‘Curb’ for this season. Every show and every joke seems forced and stilted and pretty obvious. Has LD run out of gas?The first 2 seasons were as funny as anything i’ve ever seen on TV outside of maybe Fawlty Towers and Arrested Development and some of the great Simpsons episodes.

  9. Sarcastro Says:

    To me it seems that Larry has become the prime mover in his various disputes and misunderstandings. The first couple of seasons he was more of an innocent victim of circumstance. Now it seems like he has crossed the line into being proactively obnoxious to those he encounters rather than the obnoxiousness of others colliding with his curmudgeonly personality.
