Question: Is the second season of Arrested Development being written by the same people? Since my husband and I bought the first-season DVDs we (and pretty much everyone we know) have watched it like six or seven times. But the new episodes seems to be completely lacking in spark. Why, I ask... why? Audrey
Ausiello: Yeah, the writing has been a smidge uneven this season. The whole Tobias/Blue Man Group gag went on two episodes too long and that Ann chick is getting way too much airtime if you ask me. But even at its worst (that Mexico episode comes to mind), Arrested is still the second-best comedy on the air. Besides, don't all great shows suck a little in their sophomore seasons?
