Sorry to keep banging the trumpet for this show, but it needs all the help it can get. If you don’t like it, blah blah blah. MSNBC have named AD one of the best shows of the year..

“AD” isn’t as simple to start watching as “How I Met Your Mother.” Each episode is thick with callbacks to previous installments; the core cast is huge, to say nothing of the show’s extended family of frequent guest stars, from senior-citizen/Bluth-boy seductress Lucille 2 (Liza Minnelli) to assiduously professional attorney Wayne Jarvis (John Michael Higgins) to acting coach/stew enthusiast Carl Weathers (himself); America still may not be ready for a show that has made running jokes out of the pursuit of inter-cousin incest and betrothal to a mentally challenged Englishwoman. But watching just a few episodes will not only convince you that “Arrested Development” is worth the viewer’s commitment to continuity, it will make it clear why everyone who watches it becomes a wild-eyed Bluth evangelist: it’s smart and mean and heartwarming (oh, how your heart will break for underrated young comic genius Michael Cera), all in the same episode. Find this out for yourself, while you still can.

Since I wrote this, AD’s been named program of the year by and Entertainment Weekly.

Someone replied in my Arrested Development post that it might be picked up by another network, and I thought that alone deserved its own post!
