  • How much can you cram into twenty minutes?

    Over the years sitcoms have become shorter by a few minutes, but thank heavens for Arrested Development which gets the best out of its twenty minutes of fun. How many storylines are there in here? Come to think of it, how many different types of humour? On the one hand there is satire: it pokes fun at racism and political correctness, the law, the movie business and even religious fanaticism. And then there is the slapstick of Buster and Oscar, the absurd, surreal humour of Tobias, the gentle comedy of George Michael's predicament, the irony of the narrator, ... All of this whizzes by at breakneck speed, sometimes in scenes just a few minutes long. (This cannot have been a cheap show.) As such, you can watch it over and over again and discover new things. This must have been a labour of love or someone really worked too hard.
