I'm Thankful for Arrested Development!

This Thanksgiving (or, for you America-haters/Canadians, this Thursday for no reason), you have something to add to your list of things to be thankful for. Arrested Development streaming online. For free. According to Broadcast Newsroom, three new episodes will be added every three weeks for the next year, until all 53 episodes are streaming online. For free. (Can't stress that enough.) The first five episodes are already up, playing on a new MSN video player made specially for longer videos. Plus, they'll be adding DVD-style extras, and interactive features for fans such as message boards and RSS feeds.

Hear me now, those of you who haven't seen Arrested Development: GIVE THIS SHOW A CHANCE! It is, without a doubt, one of the funniest shows that has ever existed (and certainly the funniest I've ever seen). Arrested Development shows an incredible attention to detail and continuity which rewards regular viewers with jokes that sometimes reference moments from seasons earlier, so start watching and keep watching! In my opinion, it gets even better in the second season!

At least check out the first five episodes, and if you don't like them, we can no longer be friends. (I'm really only half-kidding. And by "half-kidding," I mean, "not at all kidding." Sorry, Lori. I know you'll like it, though!) You have NO EXCUSES LEFT, non-watchers! It's online, it's free, and it's on your computer just a short click away.

So, in conclusion, spend your Thanksgiving break with the Bluth family. Your family will seem AWESOME in comparison.

We Canadians don't hate you Americans. We just like to make fun of you and taunt you and then run fast fast away. Kinda like a little brother to a bigger one. Oh, we do like to make fun of your lack of geography knowledge though (perhaps why The Amazing Race is usually top 3 in Canada) (I swear to god someone asked me if I lived in an igloo when I was in LA a while ago).

happy Turkey Day!

Thanks! Haha, yeah, the lack of geographic skillz does seem to be endemic to Americans. I'll blame the school system.

Just so you don't think I think all Canadians are terrorists (it's just most of you, right?), I was more lumping Canadians and America-haters together as losers who don't celebrate Thanksgiving. I probably fall into that category too, come to think of it, since I don't eat turkey. Hmm.

You know, I did spend my Thanksgiving watching Arrested Development with my family. Partially because it reminds me that there's more dysfunctional families out there. But mostly because it's really, really fucking funny.

That it is, Robin. That it is.
