    5 on the first page (including this one).

    Is someone putting a gun to your head and forcing you to read them?

    Well, I think we're actually beyond the last two options, so by default we're approaching the first one.

    There should be a selection for "We can never have enough Arrested Development threads!"

    Is this supposed to be just poking innocent fun at the fanboyish nature of Arrested Development fans or are you seriously complaining about how many AD threads there are? If you're seriously complaining about it, why would you add yet another thread about it? Doesn't it just seem easier to avoid reading those threads? It doesn't seem to make sense to poke fun at those that are fanatic about certain shows (and thus create many threads about them) on a forum that revolves entirely around analyzing every major show to death, either.

    I don't mean to rip on your thread or anything, but if you want to complain about anything on this forum I think I'd pick the "only 3 days till the next Lost ep!" type topic or the pointless thread asking others to cancel your SP's along with them over too many threads about a certain show.

    I think the problem is that too many people are quick to start their own threads at the slightest mention of news of a certain item, rather than checking to see if another thread has been started. We've probably all done it at some point, but how many AD threads are out there at this point?

    How many Firefly/Serenity threads have we had? Or 24? Or Lost? Or, going beyond television shows, how many threads are currently discussing the Series 3 TiVos? It makes it very difficult to get all the information, because people are posting in different threads.

    :up: The number of threads is proportional to how much better it is to most anything else on broadcast TV.

    I didn't say squat last Season when "Desparate Housewives" was the flavor of the month show. I'm encouraged that, even though the ratings might not reflect it, there's a loyal following here for a show that is the perfect DVR show.

    Never enough!!!! I'm going down with this ship, until it's truly dead and buried and every other network has passed and the sets have been struck and the actors have moved on to other projects.

    I'm not sure that AD is the best show on TV (it's close but my vote is Veronica Mars), but it's surely the best comedy in ages. The Office is gaining on it, but AD still brings the funny in a way few shows ever have, at least for me. I'm very annoyed with the way that Fox seems to be holding it hostage.

    You know, the more I think about it, this past weeks episode might be one of the best individual episodes of a sitcom, ever.

    If we're all going down with the ship I think its time for a motivational speech...
