FOX really doesn't know their TV Shows do they? How do you cancel something with such incredible writing?!

avatar

where do I add the remix of season 4!? not seeing it in search results, watching them now....SO STOKED!!!!!!

avatar

NEW SEASON OMFG

avatar

I loved season 4. Even with all the constrictions on money and scheduling the actors they managed to achieve a hilarious extension on the original seasons. Super enjoyed it! TAKE TO THE SEA!!

avatar

We need Season 4 Remix: Fateful Consequences!!! Can someone make adjustments please?

avatar

The netflix season was by far the worst but I kept watching to find out how everything would be connected. When it ended, I'm sure I wasn't the only one disappointed by the cliffhanger. They better make a follow-up to address the unanswered questions after I spent so much time watching that bullshit of a final season. The first two seasons were golden though. I didn't really care for the third season and the running British gag.

There is NO TOUCHING the genius of this show!

LOVE this show.. has to be one of my all-time favourite shows. The writing is insane and the acting matches it perfectly. 11/10

Best callbacks in a show ever. The writers want their viewers to think and if you're too slow they don't care

Arrested Development has ruined my chances of ever being content with another comedy show for ever. In my humble opinion, this is simply the greatest TV-series ever to have been produced in the world. Nothing else I've watched comes remotely close, and quite frankly, I don't think it's fair to compare it to any other comedy series ever made. The excellent dialouge writing, absolutely hilarious plots and utterly extreme attention to every single detail throughout the entire span of the series is, to put it ligthly, mildly mind numbing. You can rewatch it tens of times with pleasure. It's a never ending source of hysterical laughter. There are lots of factors that make Arrested Development unique in it's genre, but the most memorable is the intense attention to detail in the scripts, and the massive payoff for the audience if they manage to keep an equally devoted focus on everything. It's completely safe to presume that no one in the world noticed every joke, gag or funny moment the first time they watched the show. Probably not even in their second or third run through. The 22 minutes of each episode is so overstuffed with funny content, that most of the hysterical points will fly right over your head. Then you watch it again, and catch something new. Then again, and again and again, until you finally think you've seen it all. But then you give it a seventh go, and discover a funny note on the fridge in the background of a scene, or catch someone foreshadowing something you now know is coming in three episodes. I'm personally currently rewatching some of the episodes for the twentieth-something time, and just yesterday I caught something completely new which has kept me laughing since. It's just a bottomless box of fun. So, to end this 'review', I quite simply cannot reccomend this series enough. It is hands down the best and richest writing to any comedic product I have ever seen, and I seriously doubt something will ever best it. Start watching it with an open mind, spend some time getting used to the very fast pacing of the content and rapid delivery of the jokes, and I guarantee you will absolutely love it. I am 100% sure that anyone who dislikes this show either didn't give it enough of a chance, or simply doesn't share my taste in comdey. Watch it once, twice or even thrice, and you'll have established a lasting bond with what I will safely call the best writing in screenwriting history. And you can quote me on that!

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
