The Best Episode Ever!!
16 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you are looking for the best episode ever on the Arrested Development Series, this would be it! It will make you laugh literally every scene. Highlights are as others have posted, Franklin #1. Franklin is Gob's African American Puppet and the funnest puppet every. These puppet scenes will have you laughing your @ss off! #2 funnest part has to be Tobias as Miss Feather bottom. If you thought Tobias couldn't be funnier than he already is, you will be blown away by his performance as Miss Feather bottom, one word hilarious. And #3 would just have to be Michael (spoiler) making love with Mrs Veal. Any ways I'll leave it at that watch it you will love it!
