    Still now word from the fuckers at Showtime as to whether or not they’ll pick it up.

    If you feel like contacting them, you can so at:

    According to David Bianculli, it’s not Showtime but Mitch Hurwitz who is the problem:

    But Showtime… definitely is interested. The plan is to produce about three dozen more episodes for Showtime with the entire original cast. That would result in 100 episodes and make the show a more attractive and lucrative offering in syndication. … The only thing holding up the Showtime deal, according to my sources, is [series creator Mitch] Hurwitz himself, who isn’t sure he wants to keep doing more Arrested Development after three seasons. Tonight’s four episodes, he thinks, wrap things up nicely. And he’s exhausted.

    Your country needs you, Mitch. Suck it up and be a man.

    I missed the button. Thanks for capturing that.

    How could Henry Winkler not be in the final 4 episodes?

    No Scott Baio or Liza Minelli either.

    I thought some of the writing in these last episodes was subpar for this show.

    anybody else underwhelmed by the end of this otherwise superb series?

    Yeah, I kind of thought the same thing, but subpar for Arrested Development is still pretty incredible.

    I’m pissed at the network for just running them all at once like that too. It was like they were just dumping them and washing their hands of the entire thing.

    I disagree. I feel the writing in the final 4 was some of the most inspired of the series.

    If you need me to, I can pinpoint the exact moment that the show jumped the shark.
