Guess what, A.D. addicts!
Bob Loblaw, Attorney at Law, really exists!
He even has his own law blog!
Thanks to Dr. K for the notice (and his favorite clips of Bob Loblaw in action).
Haha. Yes, I remember finding his blog back in the day. Oh, how I love AD. I think I reference it about once a day. The Bob Loblaw gags cracked me up.
Last night and this morning during breakfast I started rewatching Season 2 and there are so many details I never noticed. Not necessarily verbal references I didn’t catch, but stuff like silent jokes that are included in facial expressions in the background while another character is talking, stuff like that.
Here’s an example. In the first episode (I think) of S2, Michael makes a comment to GM in the car that sounds like Lindsay might not be his real sister and says she got a nose job, then when they’re back at the house George Michael keeps staring at Lindsay. Switch to another camera angle and Michael starts talking, but on the side of the frame, Linsday spins around to walk away, embarrassedly touching her nose!
I still can’t believe how intricate each episode is, with such completey disparate elements coalescing perfectly at the end. Like the fact that the Business Model hired by GOB (whose slogan “Like a Rock” sounds like “Like Iraq”) can’t photocopy stuff correctly so she prints out the headshot of George in blueprint form, which seems funny enough just because everyone thinks his face is a floorplan, but the best payoff is at the end when the bounty hunter Ice tackles Tobias because he decided to “blue himself” as a BMG understudy.
Exactly. No matter how many times I watch it, I don’t get tired of it, and some of that is because I forgot about a joke or never noticed a detail. Some of it is that I love the joke so much, I’m sitting there thinking, “Wait for it… wait for it… HAHAHAHAH. That’s classic!”
We were in Long Beach this weekend and saw a bunch of folk riding on Segways (one can them out near the pier) and all I could think about was how much I wanted to watch AD.
“(one can RENT them out near the pier)”
I love when GOB has “PRESIDENT” put on the front of his Segway but the P fell off so it just says RESIDENT.
Just thinking about it made me make a unnattractive snorting sound as I typed in the library here. So much for flirting with the girl next to me.
Good grief, I’m really dense. One of my favorite bits is the deleted scene of Tobias and Lindsay’s meeting with the principal regarding Maeby’s alter ego Shirley and the confusion that ensues.
But it only just dawned on me two minutes ago that the primary joke about Maeby’s name is that she is George Michael’s cousin, maybe!
From the very first episode!
“Aren’t you my cousin?”
“Maybe.” (Or, Maeby, depending on how you take it.)
Amy and I rented Segways in Newport for our first dating anniversary. We laughed the whole time and tried to make Gob-like moves on them. Our tour-guide had heard of Arrested Development, but never seen it.
I’m an idiot then. I’ve only seen that episode once so I was probably still processing the previous joke and not paying attention.
