My favourite episode of the series
16 June 2018 | by ldub-46237See all my reviews

There is just so many clever jokes that has a lot to say once you think about it (like jokes directed at fashion and film). There are very surface level jokes also that are hilarious nonetheless. Also has the best ending out of any Arrested Development episode. The episode might have made me laugh more overall than the entire first season (not to say that the first season isn't hilarious, something can be really funny even if it doesn't make you laugh the same way something can be very sad even if it doesn't make you cry)
