The Office wishes it was 1/2 as good as AD was.

AD got cancelled because no matter where Fox aired it, it garnered poor ratings. They were actually set to cancel it after Season 1, but it won a shitload of awards, Emmy included. Just one of those shows that the critics loved, and had a cult following, but could not get mainstream America to watch.

Beav, coincidentally, I've been watching Season 2 this week, first time watching these episodes since their original air. Fucking amazing.

Idiot.

Is Charlize Theron season 2 or 3? Her story line was awesome. And Judy Greer was great too.

Yeah, it sounds like a show that's right up my alley too. I'm very intrigued.

PFan, I'd be stunned if you did not like it.

The best thing is, there are things you might not notice the first time around, it's that packed with references and sight gags, etc. I could not recommend it more highly.

I love the way all those weird random things all tie in. It's brilliant.

I'm right there with Pfan...haven't seen AD once in my life. Heard it was great though. Any particular episode to start with?

The first one. The whole show is a big story.

Could not agree more.

I noticed something in an episode last night that I totally missed the first time around, and it cracked me up....involved their lawyer, Barry Zuckerkorn. Fucking priceless reference.

As Beav said, you need to start from the beginning. Not one episode is a stand alone.

Well, I have nothing else to do tonight, really. I'll dig up some episodes on the net and tell you what I think.

Which one?

Scott Baio is awesome too - Bob Loblaw. Hysterical.

I've heard some speculate that that's why it didn't succeed, that because of the story arc, it was hard to get into.

I really, really like the show, but unlike most who do, I don't think it's the best thing ever. I think The Office and now, 30 Rock are better. I'll show myself out, now.
