  • Matthew Burton (played by Jason Bateman) is a clever, scheming 14-year old who's smarter than most of the adults in his world and gets just about everything he wants... until Norman Lamb (played by David Garrison) moves in across the hall and starts datin

    "It's Your Move" show was, and still is one of my all-time favorites. Jason Bateman was AMAZING talent at just 14-years-old, and he was well-matched with David Garrison. It's sad that NBC caved in to a handful of complaints, meddled with the show and effectively ruined it. I mean, "It's Your Move" was pretty tame by today's standards -- certainly more tame than the so-called 'children's programming' my 7-year-old daughter watches on Nickelodeon or the Disney Channel. As obscure as the show was and small as it's fan-base is today, I still hope the relative success of "Arrested Development" will inspire someone to release "It's Your Move" on DVD. Jason Bateman must feel snakebit -- he keeps turning in brilliant, hilarious performances and his series keep getting prematurely cancelled.
