I've always thought that whoever decided to cancel Arrested Development made a huge mistake.

Correction. A tiny huge mistake.

I'm most interested in how they will do it considering how they ended the series so perfectly.

I welcome it. But I find that most TV series turned movies fail to meet expectations. Instead, how about another season (a Family Guy type return to the Networks)?

Pub Editor:
This seems like the same dynamic at work as with Firefly/Serenity: the network cancels a show that has steady but unimpressive ratings; however, the show does have a rabid strong fan base. A studio can then rely upon that fan base to support a movie.

IMHO, studios seem reluctant these days to break new ground or take a risk; therefore, they (1) try to tap into an existing fan base--whether that base comes from books, comic books, video games, or a TV series--and (2) milk whatever does work for all it's worth (hence so many sequals and trilogies). Maybe this is really nothing new.


But I find that most TV series turned movies fail to meet expectations.

I already mentioned Firefly and Serenity, but that could just be an exception to your rule. I'm curious: would you say that the numerous Star Trek movies have, as a whole, met or failed to meet expectations?

Both.

At least, the second and fourth films (I thought) were fulfilling to us fans; the others, not so much.

As for either a movie or another TV season, I'm for it.

But I also have a question -- where did this habit of saying "not so much," the way Malvolio did in the previous post, come from in the first place? I started doing it as a result of watching Buffy, but did it come from someplace before that? Ordinary California slang, maybe? I know I never said it before Buffy.
