    The premiere (Thank glorious God for that) is in August and if FOX plans on catching any newbies up as they did last year they need to put S2 out there. I know friends of mine who have pledged to watch the show if they can watch S2. So FOX, let's get this show on the road.

    Is Arrested Development: Season 1 any good because I might pick this up if I hear about it first?

    Antonio, it's a GREAT show, and it's even funnier the second time around. I'd highly recommend it.

    I rented Season 1 and loved it. Cuz of scheduling conflicts I couldn't watch Season 2 but I will get it if it comes out on DVD, which I really hope it does.

    Just love George Michael and his crush on his cousin. Funny stuff.

    Antonio,
    It is a Great DVD. I love to just put a disk in the machine and watch a couple of episodes. The extras are outstanding! Buy it now, and start saving to buy season two!

    Great news! Unless you're my wallet because October is shaping up to be a real expensive month for me.






    It's worth it!

    October 11 seems like an awfully strange date to release it. After all, the third season is scheduled to start on September 19. Why not release it prior to the new season with the hope of finding new fans?

    The announcement is official, the date is October 11th, and artwork is up over at TVShowsonDVD.com. I'd post the link for you, but I'm out of time, but check it out. I think the artwork is phenomenal. Bonus material has yet to be announced, but there will most likely be something extra there, and it will be 16x9 enhanced like the first season as well.

    Hope this helps.

    It was a late decision by the Fox network to start its shows in September this year instead of November, as in the past few years. The Fox video department probably scheduled AD's release on the assumption that it would start in November again.

    I think the cover art is very uninspired. Once again, it ignores the rest of the fabulous cast. I saw a great publicity shot in trade ad for the show awhile ago and thought, "That'd make a great cover shot for the Season 2 set!" I couldn't remember where I saw the ad, but a quick search came up with an eBay listing for that very ad. Maybe there's time for Fox to reconsider the cover art.

    Here's the link to the trade ad art:

    I dunno why, but I really dig the cover art. Work's well with season 1.

    I agree with you Matt. I knew which picture you were talking about before you even posted the link. I don't know why Bateman gets all the credit, GOB is the most amazing character on televison.

    Jason Batman certainly deserves credit...just not all of it. Because of this show, he has become one of the great "straight men" of comedy. His role as the straight man is played off not one, but every other character on the show. His "non-response responses" and "I can't believe I'm part of this family" blank stares are priceless. The character of Maeby is almost another "straight man". Besides Michael, she's the only other family member that stands a chance of survival on her own.

    This has to be the best ensemble cast on TV in years. Bateman is fantastic in the show, but he'd be nothing without the other equally-fantastic actors surrounding him, or the brilliant writers creating their dialogue. That's what makes the show so great. This group of actors nailed their characters from the first episode.

    When I saw the first episode when it aired, I figured it was too good for TV, and would get canceled. (Every show I like gets canceled too soon.) I thought in order to be more "accessible" to the masses, they'd have to make it less witty, or worse, add a laugh track. Thankfully, this didn't happen. Although it was at risk of non-renewal, everything seems to have worked out for the best...for now.

    I don't know if this has been brought up anywhere else but I'm kinda disappointed that they are putting the episodes in broadcast order instead of the correct order. It's only one episode that was out of order (the Ben Stiller Ep. was aired early) but that but I still hope they change it before release so it will fix some continuity errors.

    According to the press release, this is how the episodes will play on the discs:

    Disc 1:
    The One Where Michael Leaves
    The One Where They Build A House
    iAmigos!
    Good Grief
    Sad Sack
    Afternoon Delight
    Switch Hitter
    Queen For A Day

    Disc 2:
    Burning Love
    Ready, Aim, Marry Me!
    Out On A Limb
    Hand To God
    Motherboy XXX
    The Immaculate Election
    Sword Of Destiny

    Disc 3:
    Meat The Veals
    Spring Breakout
    The Righteous Brothers

    and this is how it should be:
    Disc 1:
    The One Where Michael Leaves
    The One Where They Build A House
    iAmigos!
    Good Grief
    Sad Sack
    Afternoon Delight
    Switch Hitter
    Queen For A Day

    Disc 2:
    Burning Love
    Ready, Aim, Marry Me!
    Out On A Limb
    Hand To God
    Motherboy XXX
    The Immaculate Election
    Meat The Veals

    Disc 3:
    Spring Breakout
    Sword Of Destiny
    The Righteous Brothers

    There may be some hope because Fox generally does pretty good with the proper order.

    And you could always just change the disc and watch the one out of order episode in its proper place[​IMG]

    I had never seen the show before. A few weeks ago Fox was doing 4 consecutive episodes on a Friday night. I fell in love with it. I bought season 1 and love it. I'm kicking myself because a few months back, Best Buy had a big sale and I could have got it for 20 bucks. Instead I bought ALF and Dead Zone.

    This is odd considering they're running them in the right order during the Friday marathons. Hopefully they catch it before it goes to press, if it hasn't already.
