How (Not) To Revive A Show: Arrested Development vs. Community
- Published on: Wednesday, September 12, 2018
- In my second attempt at a TV-centric video essay, I attempt to point out the parallels between two of television's most innovative comedies of the past two decades: Arrested Development and Community. Both are highly acclaimed and feature award-winning writing and performances, but they have another, more specific thing in common; they both failed- twice. Which one did a better job handling their attempted rebirth, or did both of them crap the bed their second time around? I offer my two cents.

thank for watching! I tried to be a bit more informative and research-based with this video rather than solely opinionated. While I admit this video is less funny than what I usually attempt to put out, my goal was to take a documentary-like approach to the history of two shows I love. Let me know what you think.
And remember- the goal for this video is 1 billion likes, so smash that mf'ing like button and see if you can get another 14% of the world's population to do the same!
