I just finished the last episode of Arrested Development. Thanks to Jesse Thorn for a tip over at MaximumFun.org, I caught a one day special on amazon and got all three seasons for $30.
I really enjoyed it. The characters had such distinct voices and the actors were so consistent in bringing those voices to the audience. The call back jokes, sometimes reaching back a few episodes or more, were always a delight. The re-occurring chicken dances were superb. The family was just so horrible for the most part yet you found yourself pulling for them anyway.
If the rumors of a Arrested Development movie are true, I will be thrilled. Do yourself a favor and buy, NetFlix, or borrow the DVD sets and enjoy.
