A public service to Arrested Development fans who haven’t tried Archer. And vice versa.
Previously: Arrested Godfather
We put eighteen of Arrested Development‘s greatest running gags into one giant supercut.
Let’s assume the following about Arrested Development:
Everything from the beginning of the pilot episode till the main act break, when the SEC raids the Bluths’ boat party and arrests George Sr., actually happened.
From there, George Sr. is rightly convicted of treason (for aiding Saddam Hussein, as revealed in later episodes of the show) and receives a death sentence.
George Sr. is held prisoner in the awful conditions afforded to an enemy of the United States who is awaiting execution.
George Sr. is psychologically unprepared for this kind of horror, and suffers a mental breakdown.
From there the rest of Arrested Development is a fantasy George Sr. plays out in his mind fulltime, to avoid facing his own guilt and his own mortality.
America’s Got Talent would’ve been a great idea for a television show in the year ____ (insert year where boring things were really exciting). But in the year 2012, a talent show, really? Where’s the controversy? The sex appeal? The gay sex appeal? As the show begins its seventh season this week, I think it’s high time we explore some other options. Options such as:
America’s Gotye Talent: Technically from Australia; as a workaround the show will be a clip of an American flag waving while “Somebody That I Used to Know” plays on repeat for an hour. A stretch, but still somehow better than watching AGT original formula.
You know why everyone hates the “What people think I do” meme? Because they’re about real people’s boring lives.
But Darth Vader, Michael Bluth from Arrested Development, GLaDOS from Portal, Jeff Winger from Community, Leonard Shelby from Memento, Arthur Dent from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and Alex from A Clockwork Orange have fascinating lives, and I just made “What people think I do” galleries for all of them.
Yay, Arrested Development is getting one more TV season before the slightly-more-confirmed-than-before film! We get to see all our favorite characters again!
But Arrested was always bolstered by amazing guest stars, like Bob Odenkirk as the Fünkes’ couples therapist, James Lipton as the prison warden and Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Maggie Lizer-ass-off.
Maybe we’ll see them again. But we need new guests too. EVERYONE. GET IN HERE.
To play the Draw Your Life game, a meme from 4chan’s /b/ board, you fill out a template, coloring in your clothes and pasting pictures about your daily life and interests. I’ve filled it out with some of my favorite TV characters.
The template leaves a weirdly large space for “transportation”, which is just as well, because TV characters have much cooler rides than real people.
