So this weekend I was flipping channels and I came across one that I don't usually have - the Sundance Channel. Why is this relevant? Because they show Arrested Development. A lot. So this weekend I enjoyed 4 different episodes (including one I'd never seen, the first episode of season 3). And then I set the PVR to record as many different episodes as I can so that when I need a little fix, I can get it. It's such a great show, it makes me laugh every single time I watch it, no matter how many times I've seen the episode.
For instance there is the episode where Tobias decides to rip off Mrs. Doubtfire in an effort to see his daughter Maeby. His horrible accent, the fact that his nose doesn't even match his skin tone, and the fact that his fake boobs look like a terrible shelf all make me die laughing. It's stupid, I know, but I love it.
