A) I need more proof than a twitter post.
B) This and IASIP are the funniest sitcoms of the 2000s.

I watched Arrested Development a couple of years ago on IFC. My thoughts about the pilot were here is another show that doesn't live up to all hype. But I decided to stick with it and I'm glad I did. It turned out to be a god damn funny show.

I'm sorry to say the same can't be said for when I tried to watch The Larry Sanders Show. I bailed after one episode.

I'll update with concrete proof when it pops up. The New Yorker is apparently holding some kind of festival today that involved the entire cast reuniting. It was announced then. But I completely understand the "I'll believe it when I see it" mentality since it has been talked about 100 times before.

As I've said about the movie, I'll believe this as soon as I am sitting in front of my TV watching it.

It was really funny from the few episodes I saw, now I do need to watch them all.

I actually think always sunny and arrested are funnier then seinfeld with the exception of a few legendary george episodes.
I say it's funnier than both IASIP and Seinfeld just for it's sheer concentration of laughs throughout the whole series. It's also streaming on Netflix if anyone wants to catch up.

I recently re-watched the episode where Maeby goes undercover at the beauty pageant. When she reveals herself and Tobias says "that's how I know her!", very few shows have made me laugh that hard.

Stick with Larry Sanders. I've been watching it at work on Netflix. The spider episode in season one is one of the funniest episodes of any show from the 90s. Also, watching everyone on the show constantly shitting on Hank never gets old.

I might give AD another try. I watched the first few episodes when they aired and was never impressed. I think it's because David Cross annoys the shit out of me.

I can understand not liking his stand-up, but how can you hate Tobias?

The voice just grates on me. The only thing I haven't cringed at when hearing him speak was his appearance on Aqua Teen Hunger Force. He even took me out of Archer the last couple weeks

Arrested Development is one of those barometers in my life. If you dont like that show then i dont want you in my life. Dont make ya a bad person ... but still shut up and go away.
