    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.

    this show was hilarious. but you really do need to watch from the beginning to get a lot of things as the show goes on.

    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's Seinfeld good IMO. There's so many jokes per episode that it warrants repeated watches. I'll catch a subtle joke everytime I watch it.

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

    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.

    Yes the show if fuckin great! If you have direct tv, search for it because it plays all the time on IFC. Probably one of the top 5 funniest shows of all time IMHO.

    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.
