Sons & Daughters

When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.

~ A.G. Bell

For those of you still mourning the loss of Arrested Development, I come bearing glad tidings of great joy. No... AD has not been resurrected, but ABC has managed to fill the void that AD left in its wake with a stellar new show called Sons & Daughters. It has been sent to save us from the dreary sitcom hell that has plagued the land since Seinfeld left the air. Now, along with a few other stalwart holdouts like The Simpsons, The Family Guy, and maybe The Office, it joins the uphill battle for the soul of the prime time comedy.

I loved loved loved AD. I heard it's nearly official that showtime picked it up. The title of my blog, I've Made a Huge Mistake, is an AD reference- an homage to GOB's favorite line.

I had the same reaction when I heard about this new show. I hope it lives up to my expectations.

Excellent review of my potentially new favorite show! Yay ABC! and Yay Showtime! Woo-hoo!

I concur with Marc's revie: quite funny. However, it is head to head with Scrubs, which is a problem. Thank goodness I am technologically advanced enough to own a dvd/vhs combo (thanks to westlaw). Oh, what's that you all have TIVO? GO TO HELL!

I guess I'll be watching this tomorrow to see what all the fuss is about. I'm doubting it's as good as the one armed monster that made AD so amazing, but we'll see.
