Six Little Words Fiction: Arrested Development  
Remember those six little word stories? Here's a bunch for "Arrested Development," which I'm rewatching on DVD. :)

Arrested Development

Media alert: Lindsay ate in public!

Cynical Michael's boy is sweet confusion.

Barry Zuckerkorn bills you for sleeping.

Was Ann there? Who can say?

Model home crumbles with ironic regularity.

Tobias needs a "sexual orientation" intervention.

Steve Holt, non-achiever: his father's son.

Attic has-been covets his brother's mistress.

Buster gets a life. Hell freezes.

G.O.B. successfully disappears… and no-one notices.

Banana stand, cash cow, landmark eyesore.

Bottle or bedroom? Lucille hates choices.

Maeby's an orphan with living parents.

Oscar's back. Oops—arrested! Or… not.

Bob Loblaw works for you. Incompetently.

"Mother…"
"Who?"
"This is your son!"

:D I miss them too, and every time I catch sight of something painful like "The King of Queens" or whatever that Jim Belushi show is, I think, Where is the JUSTICE?

You would love AD nights at cah215. Unfortunately, you're probably too busy to join us on those nights.

Either way, these are great! I especially love--

Bottle or bedroom? Lucille hates choices.

I'm hoping to get this series for my birthday (in about a month)!

I LOVE this show, and I'm so sorry it was cancelled. It had a perfect time slot right after The Simpsons too- a more subversive version of some of The Simpsons' humor, and a solid block of "funny" that kept me hooked for the whole hour. I followed AD to Monday nights when it movied, and I'm always pained when a fantastic show is just "too smart for American Television." This thing would have been EPIC on BBC.

Did you ever see "Action," also on Fox? Very similar combination of wacky and profane and dry humor.

Was Ann there? Who can say?
That whole theme to the show cracks me up, just the contrast between George Michael being so smitten and his father wanting to deliberately forget that the girl even exists let alone is (probably) dating his son. :0

Overstock.com! Might get a good price on all 3 season. And totally worth it. ;) *crosses fingers for you*

*delayed response, sorry!*
I never did get AD for my birthday. Maybe for Christmas. We'll see!

Never did see Action, but I just checked out the description from Wiki. Sounds like something I might like since I like Jay Mohr and Illeana Douglas. Thanks for the rec!

I noticed recently that Target has a pretty good price on all 3 seasons. Just a thought!

I think you'd like "Action." And I think I need to put it in my Netflix queue to rewatch.

"Where's MY goat?"
"You shame me. I have no more goats."

I'll have to check that out (re: AD). Thanks!

You know, I just watched the Pilot of Action tonight, and it wasn't censored at all! (You can watch it instantly through Netflix.)

It wasn't bad; I think it will take a bit getting used to, but I like the line where Dragon tells his assistant that he's his whore. We'll see how it goes :)
