    Arrested Development

    Arrested Development

    • Original Network: Fox
    • Starring: Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Portia de Rossi, Tony Hale
    Arrested Development is an American television sitcom created by Mitchell Hurwitz. The series aired for three seasons on the Fox network from 2003–2006, with new episodes planned for release on Netflix in 2013. The plot of Arrested Development revolves around the members of the Bluth family, who lead extravagant lifestyles and are also often drawn into interactions with incestuous undertones. At the center of the show is Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman), the show's straight man, who strives to do the right thing and keep his family together, despite their materialism, selfishness, and manipulative natures. Despite approval from critics, Arrested Development received low ratings and viewership on Fox, which canceled the series in 2006. Rumors of a fourth season and a feature film persisted until 2011, when Netflix agreed to license new episodes and distribute them exclusively on its streaming video service. Fourteen episodes will be released on the same day in May 2013. The script of an Arrested Development film has also been in development with the main cast purported to reprise their original roles.

    • Starring: Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres, Alan Tudyk

The ensemble cast portrays the nine characters who live on Serenity. Whedon pitched the show as "nine people looking into the blackness of space and seeing nine different things". The show explores the lives of some people who fought on the losing side of a civil war and others who now make a living on the outskirts of society, as part of the pioneer culture that exists on the fringes of their star system. Firefly premiered in the United States on the Fox network on September 20, 2002. By mid-December, Firefly had averaged 4.7 million viewers per episode and was 98th in Nielsen ratings.

    Archer

    Archer

    • Original Network: FX
    • Starring: H. Jon Benjamin, Judy Greer, Amber Nash
    Archer is an American animated sitcom television series created by Adam Reed for the FX network. Set at ISIS, the International Secret Intelligence Service (cf. SIS, ASIS, CSIS, NZSIS) in New York City, suave but incredibly self-centered master spy Sterling Archer deals with global espionage. The show's time setting is comically anachronistic, deliberately mixing technologies, clothing styles and historical backdrops of different decades. The characters wear 1960s clothing and hair styles and many episodes feature references to the Soviet Union as a current nation and to Fidel Castro as the current leader of Cuba.

    Little Britain

    Little Britain

    • Original Network: BBC
    • Starring: David Walliams, Matt Lucas
    Little Britain is a British character-based comedy sketch show which was first broadcast on BBC radio and then turned into a television show. It was written by comic duo David Walliams and Matt Lucas. The show comprises sketches involving exaggerated parodies of British people from all walks of life in various situations familiar to the British. These sketches are presented to the viewer together with narration in a manner which suggests that the programme is a guide—aimed at non-British people—to the ways of life of various classes of British society. Despite the narrator's description of great British institutions, the comedy is derived from the British audience's self-deprecating understanding of either themselves or people known to them. An American continuation of the show, Little Britain USA, was broadcast in 2008. This series was shown on HBO in the US, HBO Canada in Canada, BBC One in the UK and on Network Ten in Australia, as well as various other television channels across the world.

    • Original Network: ABC
    • Starring: Ed O'Neill, Sofía Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell

Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan conceived the series while sharing stories of their own "modern families." The first season was met with universal critical acclaim. It received a Metacritic score of 86 out of 100. Entertainment Weekly gave it an A-, calling it "immediately recognizable as the best new sitcom of the fall". In Time's review, the show was named "the funniest new family comedy of the year". It has also been compared to the 1970s series Soap, in regards to the multiple family aspect. Some have made comparisons to The Office and Parks and Recreation, due to their mockumentary formats.

    Twin Peaks

    Twin Peaks

    • Original Network: ABC
    • Starring: Kyle MacLachlan

    Twin Peaks is an American television serial drama created by Mark Frost and David Lynch. It follows an investigation headed by FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) into the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee). Twin Peaks became one of the top-rated shows of 1990 and was a critical success both nationally and internationally. It captured a devoted cult fan base and became a part of popular culture that has been referenced in television shows, commercials, comic books, video games, films and song lyrics. Declining viewer ratings led to ABC's insistence that the identity of Laura's murderer be revealed midway through the second season. The series was followed by a 1992 feature film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, which serves as both a prequel and an epilogue to the television series.

    Trailer Park Boys

    • Original Network: Netflix

    Trailer Park Boys is about life between prison terms. Always trying to play the angles, always done-in by forces beyond their control, and always in the middle of a gunfight, Ricky and Julian are decent, hard- working guys trying to cope with the New World Economic Order. It's not that the boys don't know right from wrong, it's just that "right" rarely presents itself.
