an ‘arrest-ing development’

arresteddevA few years ago Beth and I developed an addiction to a show on NBC called The Office (great episode tonight, by the way).  

The problem with getting hooked on a tv show (yes, we know that some of you would argue that there are a lot of problems with getting hooked on a tv show) is that, eventually, you run out of episodes and experience a period of withdraws.

For our fellow Office buddies out there, you have felt our pain and probably been introduced to Arrested Development, a show oftentimes bandied about as a common go-to for Office fans who need a shot of off-beat, well-written, zany humor-filled television.  

Beth and I, while reticent and even a bit disappointed initially, eventually came to really enjoy the brilliant writing and unbelievable characters on the show.  While the show may be a bit over the top for some of you, we really enjoy kicking back, popping in a season of Arrested Development and laughing our heads off.

You may be waiting for some worldview and culture related thoughts with an introduction like that, but really this has been an over-glorified introduction to a handful of photos.  

The other day we popped in one of our favorite episodes “Mr.F” (season 3, episode 5) and sprawled out on the floor of our den to enjoy a good laugh.  We were joined in our entertainment pleasure by my buddy Matt Elia (who lived with us this past Spring after a tornado destroyed his dorm room at Union University).  

Matt also happens to be a photojournalist who cannot help but snap shots any time he can get his hands on a camera.  He snagged our Nikon and snapped some shots of Beth and I mid-episode:

    Love me some AD!!!!! I knew I could count on you guys. Favorite moments: Gob and the Segue? COME ON! Buster when he convinces his mom that the stuffed animals he won from the claw machine are awards from army? George Michael’s wardrobe. Justin won’t let me tell anyone that we like the show. I will admit though, the last season was a disappointment. Thoughts?

    I agree. The second season was the best season overall.

    Beth and I have two favorite episodes: “Mr. F” where Tobias ends up dressed like a mole, fighting George Michael in the rocket suit, while stomping the tiny train set village as the Japanese investors watch on. Amazing.

    We also really love the episode in season 2 when Gob decides to get revenge on Michael by sleeping with women he thinks Michael is interested in, but ends up totally blowing it and sleeping with the girl with the unibrow and the 60 year old social studies teacher. Its morally reprehensible but really ironically hilarious.

    Thanks KBC, I think the photos are pretty awesome too. Especially because Beth is so incredibly good looking.

    We too are AD fans. It just is beyond words! Justin concurs that Mr. F is by far the funniest one ever! Glad to see we don’t have to be “closet” watchers anymore.
