The internet told me to tell you

Arrested Development being picked up by Showtime? Fingers crossed! [Article]

And, of course, you've already read the new
David Sedaris piece in the New Yorker.

And this article talks about tons of movies that I adore. I haven't read the article, so I don't really know if its a good article, but it can't be that bad. [

And since I've been pretty low-key lately, I thought I'd touch upon some TV crap that I've let slip a little.

First off, the series finale of Arrested Development was a bit of a let down. Sure, the Justine Bateman episode was pretty inspired with her tirade mimicking GOB's from the previous season, but overall, the final four just didn't cram in the laugh-per-minute that other episodes have. Maybe they did and I just need to go back and watch them again. (Well, I have already seen them each three times.) Some people (read: douche bags) didn't like the finale at all. [
Review] Other people (read: fans) thought, like me, it was just ok. [Review]

Now onto my newest love--Battlestar Galactica. Are you watching this show? Why aren't you watching this show? Its allegorical prowess alone is far superior than anything that has ever been on TV. There are so many BIG ideas on this show. There are so many HOT guys on this show. Tonight's episode probably isn't for the unitiated, but for us fans, its been long coming. A story told entirely from the Cylons POV. I could talk about how this show questions the meaning of existence. I could tell you how this show asks what it means to be human. I could tell you that nearly every week
Jamie Bamber takes off his shirt. But, like all good storytelling, this show relies on the telling, not the tale. I don't have to justify myself to you. This show is damn fine. (So are most of the dudes in it.) [Images originated here]
