    Agreed, you don't necessarily have to be intelligent to enjoy AD, it's just that most people who watch TV are zombies and have to be told how to think. Others just don't seem to understand the subtle humour of the show like that guy who didn't like the suit bit. I showed him a chicken dance and he didn't get that either, because to him, he sees a bunch of people acting stupid, while I see one of the cleverest examples of irony and satire.

    I know what you mean.  I once asked someone in my class if they'd seen AD, and he said "That show is gay!"

    Seriously, you are right.  Also, as for the anime issue brought up on page one, anyone who doesn't like anime probably only watched dubbed anime, and somehow, even the best jokes sound not all that funny when American VAs say them in their "I refuse to use a loud voice in anime" tone.

    In my experiences, whenever someone I know uses the word gay to describe something like a show or a song, the best response is to regurgitate back to them what they just said in a manner such as this:

    "Yes, Arrested Development clearly prefers the sexual company of men."

    This should be rounded off with a nice 'dumbass' or 'sh!thead' for best results.

    As for Anime, I still don't like it & nobody can convince me otherwise, nothing personal, I just think it's weird.
