Sit down, Read This


Mitch Hurwitz the creator of Arrested Development, has come out with a new show. The new show is called Sit Down, Shut Up and features a lot of people from Arrested Development doing the voice acting for the characters. If you want to check it out head over to Hulu for the entire first episode. http://www.hulu.com/watch/68588/sit-down-shut-up-pilot#s-p1-so-i0

Before talking about what I thought about the show, let me take a second to talk about the animation style. This show takes some real life photos and uses them as background. Even some of the images in the show were real photos. For example: One of the teachers takes out magazines from a real life garbage. I thought this style of animation was pretty cool and interesting to watch.

Only one episode has come out so far, and a lot of people are just not having their fill of comedy. I have to say that I did enjoy Arrested Development and to compare the two shows just isn't right. They are two different types of comedies and yes Arrested Development was way funnier. This Sit Down, Shut Up show seemed like it was trying to be funny and I did laugh at some parts. I do remember this Fox promo for this show, basically saying it was sorry for canceling Arrested Development and that this will make up for it. I Think Fox was just over hyping this show a little to much.

So when the next episode rolls out, I might be there to check it out, but I'm not making it a priority to watch it.
