Another achievement for Arrested Development

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tom @ 2:19 pm

On top of the Emmy awards and nominations, the critics’ undying love, and a small but ravenous legion of fans, Arrested Development now has one more beautiful achievement to parade around: it is one of the many Fox shows that top a list of TV programming that a parents group deems distasteful. The fact that it’s not #1 shows that they didn’t even watch the show – no other program on TV has gotten away with a line like Tobias’ recent outburst “I can just taste the meaty leading man parts in my mouth!” and repeated mentions in season 2 of how he “blue himself.” If they missed that or somehow didn’t think it was offensive, perhaps the show really is too subtly subversive. Either way, congratulations, Arrested Development! You know what they say about “bad” publicity . . . let’s hope it really is true.
