Je m’appelle Cédric Bozzi et ceci est mon blog. Enfin, ceci est surtout la reprise de tous mes tweets et de mes photos publiées sur Instagram, mais parfois il peut aussi y avoir de vrais articles.
Did I ever tell you I don’t like sitcoms? I hate when the writers give a character some peculiarity (e.g., an allergy) for the sake of an episode’s running gag, and it’s never mentioned again afterwards. Or when a character does something completely out of left field just for the sake of making the audience laugh, and consistency be damned. And I hate when half a dozen self-centered assholes remain Friends for, like, fifty years, when there’s not a chance in hell they’d speak to each other for more than ten minutes in reality.
Well, Arrested Development is all of that, only the exact opposite. Wacky but consistent characters. Stupid throw-away jokes that are developed and remembered over an entire season. More stupid throw-away jokes that are actually hints to the season finale’s reveal. Can you imagine that?
This is great writing, and I don’t say that often about comedies.
