Out of the Blue

Dark Horizons (thanks Ant) reports the good news for Arrested Development, that the final four episodes of the season will air as a two-hour finale on Friday, February 10. The bad news is that it looks more like a final finale rather than just the end to the season, as they have scheduled this opposite the opening ceremony of the Olympics. I myself would watch just about anything as opposed to the Olympics, so this is a no-brainer for me, but it really does seem like this one is a sacrificial lamb.

Back in Holland they showed probably 80-85% of the Olympics. Obviously they did focus more on sports in which Dutch athletes competed and had chances for medals (for example speed skating), but pretty much everything was shown.

When I came to the US, I was stunned at just how limited NBC's coverage is. Sure they broadcast for like 300 hours straight or so, but unless an American has a good chance to medal in the particular event, it seems that NBC just won't show it, nor even make mention of it anywhere.
