the end

It's finally official; Arrested Development is no more.

We have been holding our collective breathes, hoping that perhaps a deal would be made with Showtime or another network - but word came down today that the Bluth family will not be returning to anyone's home.

Though, it has ended in a way that I did not expect. Showtime did make an offer to Mitch Huriwitz for 26 more episodes of the series - but he turned them down. Hurwitz told Variety that he would consider continuing on as a consultant, and that he would be interested in making a feature film of the series.

"I said I'd be happy to do that, but that as show runner, I've gone as far as I can go," he said.

So, this is our end - and not a bad one I might add. I felt the series wrapped itself up quite well. Regardless, there is an empty spot in my heart for the series... COME ON!!!!

Man, this is a bad day for television. Bad, bad, bad. And yet, we still have the rest of this season of The War at Home to look forward to...

Excuse me while I vomit.
