I am sorry to keep harping on Arrested Development, since apparently so few of us are watching it that even the friggin' WB regularly dispatches Fox's Monday-night lineup. (Yes, there is video coming up.)
But for the love of God, please! If you don't watch this show already, then start! And if you do, then get more people to watch! I cannot think of a funnier, snappier, more brilliant TV comedy, ever. (Other shows have been probably just as funny, but none has matched the writing, pacing and performances of AD. If it is canceled, I will sob like a disconsolate widow.)
Which is why last night was so great: not one, but two new episodes back-to-back, which meant double the amount of the fey, feckless Tobias Fünke, and twice his regular number of ridiculous attempts at an actual hairstyle.
As always, Tobias was caught in several double entendre holes of his own digging. In the first episode, he coaches the painfully plain Ann Veal for an "inner beauty" pageant. And in the second, he becomes a "mole," with cataclysmically comedic results.
And as a bonus, Malco-Vision is including a scene in which George Sr. is led to believe he is going to speak to young men at a "Startled Straight" meeting on the perils of prison life. Which, of course, backfires.
