Cardiac Arrested?

Almost everyone has pronounced Arrested Development dead. Fox did pull it from sweeps and did pull back to 13 episodes. But I still have hope. If we all watch the remaining episodes (and when I say we, I mean like 15 million of us), maybe Fox will have a change of heart. Until then, there is no joy in Mudville. Anyways, for your reading pleasure:
Can Showtime save Arrested Development?

David Cross' take on the situation. And the Observer 's take. And Poor Buster.

*EDIT: Here are some more links re: the death of happiness:
Upcoming episode of AD to be called "S.O.B.s" - for "Save Our Bluths."
Save Our Bluths, the online campaign.

I'm with you. I personally believe the fans (so paltry few of us) will rally and drum up support and save AD once again. I've already bought Seasons 1 and 2 as gifts and have done my little online call to arms. Naive? Maybe. Hopeful? Definitely.

Captain Oats, y'know what would totally make my Musical Monday? If you went retro and picked up a tune from three TV seasons ago, played during The Smallville Season 2 finale, it's by Matthew Good and it's called "Weapon." But be careful! There are multiple versions of the song and the one I'm looking for is the soft version played during the episode "Exodus." I can't find it on iTunes, and since me no so computer saavy I beseech thee, o ruler of Musical Monday. Make this Old Italian Stereotype proud. Can we make this dream a reality?

Oh one other thing, Captain Oats -- Have you heard of The Editors. They're The Next Big Thing in England right now, which means they will be passe by next week but they're being called Britain's answer to Interpol. Yes, I know you hate Interpol (and frankly their sceond album was disappointing), but these guys sound way better because unlike Paul Banks from Interpol the lead singer actually is capable of having a warm voice that isn't always detached. Don't believe me? Check out the review of their album on allmusic.com (4.5 stars) and unfortunately they only have 2 songs up on iTunes (the dazzling Munich and the solid Release), but both are worth a download. mnr639 out. Wow, I am a geek.

Speaking of shows on their last legs, what's up with ABC moving Alias to Wednesday nights? That doesn't seem like the move of a network content to let a show die. Is there another season in store?

hey mnr639, did you know your song 'weapon' also played on season two of alias? knowing you, you prolly did. anyways, check your email, there's an early xmas present for ya...

and i checked out Editors, they're pretty good... a little too Interpol for me tho... but yes, they are better.

and lastly, i was weirded out by abc's move too... i know it's only for two weeks that they're doing that.. my guess is that ratings are SO bad they are trying anything to gain a few viewers, and the easiest way is to put it after Lost i guess... i highly doubt it'll come back for season five tho, there were rumors that they were even gonna cancel it early this season cause the ratins were so horrendous
