Arrested Development is the greatest show of recent years
We'd only watched a few episodes when it was on originally, and liked it a lot, but missed a few, then just stopped watching it.

Now we're watching them all in syndication, and wow! More jokes per minute than any show I can remember - and the type of humor is all over the map. Broad slapstick, fine satire, everything.

I can't wait for the movie next year.

2. No, it didn't
it requires a level of concentration that most shows don't require. But the jokes are fast and furious, and you can miss a lot of them if you're not watching carefully.

4. Thats because shows have to be written
for the lowest common denominator half the time for them to catch on.
