... because its been talked about in the newest Geek Shall Inherit podcast...


Man! I LOVE this show! Still have moments when it will randomly pop into my head and I will laugh out loud at the memory.

Had to be said.

Please, lets discuss....

It had it's moments, I'll grant you that. And (most of) the cast was top notch and I'm always glad when I see them getting work on other shows.

But I can't see myself plunking down money to see this in a theater. I'll certainly watch it once it reaches HBO, however.

It's supposed to get some strange choose your own adventure kinda thing on netflix in may. I'll see if I can find the article. It's supposed to be like 12 mini episodes varying in length and Michael is the only character that will be in all of them, but each of them will deal with a different member of the family and apparently, depending on what order you decide to watch them in, have varying relevance on the storyline of all the others. I cant wait. This is my favorite live action sitcom, only slightly behind futurama for greatest sitcom ever.

Netflix is reviving the show as a "new" series as part of their push to originate content. The Netflix shows will apparently bridge the time toward the movie. Some fans will salivate over all of this. I'm not a fan's fan of the show. Instead, I'm more interested in Netflix's push to start originating original content. It will be interesting to watch that develop them away from just showing movies and television shows from other networks.

It's 15 episodes, each episode focuses on one character, but it's telling the same story from each characters perspective/participation.
It will be exclusive to Netflix, it starts up May 26 and if is does well there will be at least one feature film.

There are some pretty great virtual teaser posters being posted these past weeks on the official Facebook page.

I love this show and just recently re-watched all 3 season.

Can't wait for the new ones!

um, anybody else realize this has been out for like 2 weeks? I still haven't finished it, but so far... UH-MAY-ZING!

I mean, I know it's no Fast & Furious 6 or anything, but I figured somebody would have something to say about it. Not even on the first page.

Yeah, I did a marathon viewing over the weekend.

I can't believe how well organized this show was. Some jokes get set up in one episode only to get the punchline 6 episodes later in a different characters episode.

Guest stars galore, pretty much everyone who was ever on the show originally is back, STEVE HOLT!, and some of the best character progressions ever (I'm looking at you Dr. Funke...)

Also love that they changed the opening sequence based on the star of that episode.

Now, really, I need a 5th season or a feature release now more than ever!
