I wonder who at Netflix I have to blow to get them to resurrect "Firefly" and "Terminator: Sarah Connor" (hopefully with far better writers this time) like they are doing with 'Arrested Development'...

I was a very latecomer to Firefly, but I'd love Netflix to do something with it. Doubt it'll ever happen, but we can dream.

Great to see Netflix expanding their business in this manner. Believe it or not, I've never seen Arrested Development, but it's in my Instant Queue. Now I just need the time to watch it.

When Hulu launched I watched the whole thing through and instantly joined the "bring this show back on TV now" club. To call it a very funny and smartly written show would be an understatement.

I actually do a mean Jim Morrison myself, probably better than Fallon.

Witnesses said the driver returned to the window while the car was burning, retrieved her food, and ate it at the scene while waiting for emergency personnel to arrive.

ROFL!

Wow, that's a great Doors impression. You should watch the original Reading Rainbow first though, if you haven't heard it in a while.

Yeah, I've never really cared for Fallon but that's an absolutely phenomenal impression.

You know, I read the Arrested Development headline and I thought, "Oh cool, Netflix is getting seasons 1-3 to stream again, I never knew it went away." Little did I know Netflix is PRODUCING Season 4!!!

WHAAAAAAT!!?!?!!

That's crazy-insane great news!

It's zero hour, Blue. It's the end of the line.
I'm the firstborn.
Sick of playing second fiddle.
Always third in line for everything.
Tired of finishing fourth.
Being the fifth wheel.

There are...six things I'm mad about, and Netflix is taking over.

Maybe just a pessimist but I have a hard time imagining Arrested Development will be the same, or anything like as good.

1. jimmy fallon sing reading rainbow Nov 19, 2011, 16:45 zirik
 
i laughed hard to that video. i used to watch the reading rainbow with my nephew and this version of the intro song just works and is funny. le var burton did a great job hosting that pbs kids show. its too bad dubya bush ordered the change in focus of education to learning the basics of how to read instead of teaching kids that reading can be an enjoyable journey into the imagination. reading rainbow died because no pbs channel subscribed to it when dubyas new education policy kicked in. thats why we will never see the old style of sesame street, reading rainbow et al. kids today are stuck watching shows like words world and super why that dont encourage reading for pleasure. it teaches them that reading is drudge and boring.
