I discovered Will Arnett a couple of days ago on Twitter. "Great!" I thought.
And I hoped he would convince his buddy to join Twitter, too. And he did.

Bateman and Arnett on Twitter! How awesome is that??
(For an Arrested Development fan- the rest probably doesnt even know who I am talking about xD )

If you are a fan, go follow them!

(I am still a tiny lil bit suspicious since both accounts are not verified (yet) but it's looks legit)

And a pic of Jason just for my pleasure. ^^

One characteristic of a GREAT tv series?

You watch an episode for the x-th time and you still discover things that make you burst out in laughter.

Had that experience today when I re-watched the first 3 episodes of ....Arrested Development. And no- I am not obsessed. Just saying.

Also, some jokes never get old...like when Tobias crawls up the stage or falls off the chair. xD

Jason Bateman is funny.
Will Arnett is funny.
Conan O'Brien is funny.

Jason Bateman and Will Arnett on Conan's show were hilarious.

As soon as Conan gets his own show again (not before September, thanks to NBC) he should have Bateman and Arnett together. I might die laughing. xD
The (hopefully) upcoming Arrested Develeopment movie might be a nice occasion (even tho the movie was delayed again.... ).

What a pre-sleep rambling. ;-)

Good night all.

Because I was not really tired, I decided to switch on my tv and watch 'something'. Which means: power zapping. :oD
So much crap on tv...  but that's nothing new.

I ended up watching Comedy Central, which was just airing Arrested Development (my favorite show, remember? ). And boy...am I dissapointed of the  German dubbing.
In general, I dont mind to watch something dubbed- when it is well done.

But what they did with Arrested Development...I cant even describe it. It was just ...poor.

Ron Howard is amazing as the narrator...but the German narrator sounded bored and he just failed to deliver his lines. Ron Howard is just PERFECT on so many lines...and the German narrator is NOT. Just not funny.

The voices for Michael, Lindsay, George sr, Buster and especially Tobias are nicely chosen and they kinda fit. Lucille I didnt hear. George- Michael's and Maeby's voice don't really fit. But G.O.B??? Come on! This is just not GOB. Not at all. 

I caught myself giggling sometimes when I watched it... but laughing out loud - like I do when watching the original- nope, nothing. And I just giggled becasue of a certain expression on somebody's face, not because of the so typical witty play on words. After seeing this I am not suprised that AD doesn't really have a fanbase in Germany (besides the people who watch the original). I know for a fact: I wouldn't have fallen in love with the show if I had seen the German version of it. That's a shame really. :-/

Sorry for the rant...

I just finished watching Season 2 of Arrested Development. And I know I might repeat myself but I gotta say this:


The writing, the density of the stories, the humor and the cast- perfect, just perfect!

Time to sleep now...it's waaaay to late, but I just couldn't stop watching. :-x

Yay, I have a new fandom: Arrested Developement. I have only seen 3 episodes so far but I sooo love it. The humor is exactly like mine. And the family....lol

Here are some nice quotes from Episode 1.04. Key Decisions
Michael: "A family- Nothing else matters!"
Michael: "That's mom- hide!"

Lindsey: ...and I appreciate what you're doing for the environment. But we are not the only ones who destroy trees. What about beavers? lmao
