Well, it's pretty much here. The new season of Arrested Development. Yes, it's almost impossible to live up to the hype that has been built. It's inevitable to be a disappointment. Like Christmas Eve, it's much more exciting before we all sit down to watch it.
Still, once you look at the current landscape of television (particularly comedy), it's hard to imagine that it won't immediately be better than 90% of what's out there right now. And honestly, I don't believe that's a lofty goal (seriously - other than Parks and Recreation and Happy Endings (which yeah got cancelled, so forget it unless it comes back on another channel), what is funny on television right now?)
