    I'm going to have to start watching this show again, it's been too long. I love when GOB gets stabbed by the white supremist in prison.

    "WHITE POWER!"

    "But... I'm white?"

    'A.D.' was pure genius in its social commentary and delivery. Lucille (Jessica Walter) asking a nurse what floor the hospital's bar is on...ROTFL LMAO BRAHAHAHA.

    The show was brilliant...sadly, over the heads of much of the American TV audience. :no:

    I recently watched the entire series in about a 5-day span. I had totally forgotten so much of it. It really was awesome.

    Agree.
    He continues to play the same, worn character that isn't that funny. I can stand him in Arrested Development, but that's about it.
    I just enjoy Michael's disgust for Ann.

    By far, my favourite ever TV show. Pure brilliance.

    personal favourites include "Mr. F" "Tobias - Analrapist" and the scene with Buster in the ocean ("Loose Seal").

    An often overlooked and criminally under appreciated show.

    Man that show is one of my favorites, probably right behind Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm. It doesn't get much better than Will Arnett and David Cross. They kill me, and the parents are extremely funny too. Not to mention all the great cameos they have.

    I heard they might be making a movie, but it probably won't come out for a long time.

    My favorite sitcom of all time! So well-written and acted, it's a shame it didn't last very long.

    For those of you who enjoyed this show, I'd like to recommend Better Off Ted. It's written by the guy who created Andy Richter Controls the Universe and has Portia DeRossi in it (and she's awesomely hilarious in this role just as she was in AD)

    It got canceled after two seasons, but if you have some time to kill, the 20 or so episodes that were aired are certainly worth checking out.
