Hip and cool and cutting-edge?

Is IF now the hippest thing on the planet?

The best show on television--nosing out BBC's The Office by mere inches for the win, in my book--now has a bonafide infertility theme. A comic infertility theme. Yes, indeedy, I'm talking about Arrested Development here, folks. Genius! Pure, unfettered genius, I say!

We finally watched the episode from a week ago Sunday, which we had been holding onto in our TiVo list for a full seven days so we could properly savor the anticipation. I will not say much more because I do not want to sully the brilliance of the show with my hackjob of a recap, but let it be known that the words "your mother's fertile womb" were used to great effect.

How cool is that?

I love Arrested Development. (And The Office, too. I just got The Office Special from Netflix) We often laugh because Lucille once referred to Maebe (sp?) as "Not real. She was made in a cup. Like soup." Since our girls were also "made in a cup. Like soup" we laugh.

You're like the 3rd person this week that has raved about that show. I guess I'm just going to have to break down and finally watch it.

I might have to check in for a peak too! I've heard nothing but good things about it. As far as comic takes on infertility go, though, it's hard to beat Raising Arizona.

Yes! And from the same episode as the "made in a cup - like soup" line that gets repeated often in my house, there's also "let's just say - she spent her inheritance just getting here."

Ooh, I love Arrested Development. I am SO bummed that I missed that episode. Crap. Now I will either have to wait for a rerun, or just repeat that line like heresay and pretend I remembered to watch it.
