OMG Arrested Development Is Coming Back! Eh.


When I finally invent that time machine, and I go back in time like 4 years ago, me from 4 years ago is going to be so excited! 

Meanwhile in 2011:

So, the show that everybody loved and nobody watched is coming back for about 10 episodes to air on Showtime or Netflix (which all of you hate now) and then they are going to keep pretending that they are making a movie

Fine, great, whatever. I'm bored with Arrested Development rumors. Make it, don't make it, begin a nuclear holocaust, whatever. 

Here are 2 shows I'd rather see brought back to television in no particular order: 

2. Newsradio: Yeah, i know the show died when Phil Hartman did. And I know that John Lovitz was about as funny on the show as a John Lovitz. And I know that Andy Dick is a Dick. But it was one of the best shows that was never a big hit. Funnier than Arrested Development (narration is lazy,) and it was ahead of it's time. Compared to shows like Two And A Half Men, and the unwatchable, The Big Bang Theory, it was like Citizen Kane compared to Biodome. 

1. Austin Stories: Back in 1997, I used to listen to NIN and Nirvana while quietly weeping with my head under my pillow, but when I wasn't busy doing THAT (my senior year of High School,) I was busy touching myself while looking at yearbook photos of all the girls in my class, BUT when I wasn't doing THAT ... I was watching the consistently funny and irreverent MTV show, Austin Stories. It took place in Austin, Texas, and featured three very real characters you weren't used to seeing in a situation comedy kind of show. And it worked. Ahead of it's time, and true to itself, it was a great show that deserved a larger audience and longer run. 

Hmm. Those were funny, I guess. But not like, super funny. Not like I remeberd them being.

They were just, you know, like "hehe" funny, not "haha" funny.

Wow. For years I've thought about those two shows and how I couldn't believe they never found a really large audience. After watching the clips, I just think, they were ok. A lot of crap becomes popular, and a lot of good stuff doesn't. And then there are shows that maybe don't quite find the audience they deserve, and then people who like the show think that everyone who didn't watch, was somehow just misguided and wrong, when in fact they might just have not been that interested in a moderately funny show. So, Arrested Development, you are coming back. I feel like ...
