For the Love of Gob, People!





Tune in this evening for an Arrested Development marathon on FOX, running opposite the (yawn)Olympic Opening Ceremonies. Fox is billing it as the "Season Finale", but any fan of the show knows that they may as well call it the "Series Finale", since Fox routinely and methodically murders brilliant, well-written shows. Bastages.

Here's the preview from the Fox Website:

ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT
**2-HOUR SEASON FINALE**

IT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR ON THE SPECIAL ALL-NEW TWO-HOUR SEASON FINALE OF “ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT” FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10, ON FOX

Judge Reinhold, William Hung, Justine Bateman, Jamie Kennedy Make Guest Appearances

In four back-to-back episodes, George Sr. hires a new attorney who asks the Bluths to participate in a mock trial to help prepare them for the real thing. The attorney gets actor Judge Reinhold, to preside over the mock case. Meanwhile, Buster fakes a coma to get out of testifying and George Michael and Maeby participate in a mock wedding to entertain hospital patients. Back at the office, Michael discovers he may have a long-lost sister named Nellie Bluth. In an effort to get to the bottom of things, Michael tracks Nellie down and hires her as a consultant for The Bluth Co. Unfortunately, Michael discovers Nellie’s hands-on approach is more than he bargained for.

Meanwhile, Gob goes to Iraq to perform his Christian magic act on the USO tour and ends up incarcerated. Michael learns George Sr. sent Gob to Iraq to burn down the model home he built there, so Michael and Buster fly to Iraq to spring Gob from prison. The Bluth brothers head to the model home, where they make a discovery that could end the family’s legal troubles forever. Back in Orange County, Lucille decides to throw a yacht party to celebrate. The Bluths gather aboard the Queen Mary for a trip that ends up being far from smooth sailing on the “Faking It/Family Ties/Exit Strategy/Development Arrested” episodes of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT Friday, Feb. 10 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
