I don't know if this entirely counts, but hey.
I picked up Arrested Development series 1 on DVD a few months ago but never ended up watching it. Without the internet at my uni place the last couple of weeks, I popped it in. Amazing stuff. Promptly ordered 2 and 3 and I finished watching it earlier. Unrelentingly funny. At the same time, it was clever but didn't need it all the time. Done with master strokes, truly. A shame it got cancelled, but it definitely felt like it had a good conclusion. If I had to pick a favourite character (and I no I don't, but I want to emphasise this) it has to be Maebe, particularly what happens for her during series 2.
In a sense, I feel like it's sort of like Police Squad in style, in that it's really pushing the Jokes Per Minute, but can do all kinds of comedy with no difficulty involved. Anyhow, I strongly recommend AD for comedy fans.
