    "Lindsay's Arrested Development"

    Took me a bit to adjust to Portia de Rossi's look. What happened?

    She's always been my favorite. After Michael, her twin brother... Not really.
    One of the absolutely clueless-est. :)

    Poor Maeby.
    "You know, 'cause then we'd have it."
    and a NINJA loan.
    The butter bit made me laugh out loud, and then just got gross.
    Didn't care much for the addict couple.

    Camp KissaMeMommy was just what you'd expect from Lucille and Buster. That kid did a great Buster.

    Ron Howard really pulls it all together. So much can come through those little tidbits.

    How much of the Outsourced cast was in this?

    I only recognized the one guy - repeatedly :) - but, I didn't watch Outsourced.

    Ninja, please!

    I think Portia looks like she's lost a lot of weight or something.

    Yeah the first guy selling her the purse, then the second salesman, the cabbie, the guy at the front desk of the hotel. I stopped paying attention after that.

    Weight loss and a little nip/tuck I think.

    I mentioned her look in the other thread. It's her face, she's had something happen to her cheeks so they are more prominent and no longer move. She looks a little more like her old self in the later episodes.

    Yes, looks like the skin might be a bit tighter, eyes rounder, and definitely looks thinner to me. She also seemed pale with the way she was made up. Simply making her eyebrows match would have helped some.

    I actually thought in a few scenes her look was similar to Anne Heche, coincidentally enough... ;)

    I thought the same thing too! Either they were giving some sort of tribute to that show or it's a sad example of the lack of Indian actors in Hollywood.

    I really liked her in the old show, not so much in the new. It could just be put down to getting older or perhaps you are correct and Ellen is putting something in her food.

    She does look different for sure. I watched that pilot episode of Mockingbird Lane. She played Lily in that. I didn't realize it was her until after I'd watched the show. It looked nothing like her.

    Definitely thought Portia looked very different, and not necessarily better. Seems she's had work done and it had the opposite of the intended effect.

    The scene with Ed Helms selling them the house was pretty funny, upselling them from the one-bedroom to 10,000 square feet. And hilarious that Maeby was right there in the room when they told him they had no kids.

    Well, that was terrible.

    I thought people were just being mean about Portia. I was wrong. Her face was about 5 shades lighter than the rest of her. Half the time she looked like Christine Taylor. I saw her in person at an event in October and she looked stunning, but I was maybe 25' away from the stage. What a bummer, she was so pretty.

    The only thing that made me laugh was "ninja, please!" Otherwise, this just affirmed my belief that if they couldn't get the full cast together they shouldn't have bothered. It was an unfunny hot mess.
