    I thought Arrested Development was hilarious. Dunno about best comedy of the Noughties but it's up there!

    i've just recently started watching arrested development, via netflix. it's a seriously great show that makes me laugh my ass off. i think i still like curb your enthusiasm better, though.

    Arrested Development was fucking hilarious.....and it was SO WRONG to have allowed that to leave the airways. It was absolutely awesome.

    And hello, Mad Men. I cannot WAIT for this Sunday...

    I love Arrested Development. Got my boyfriend to sit down and watch it with me and he was cracking up.

    Why would anyone nominate Everybody Loves Raymond? That show was horrible and annoying.

    How the fuck did the Sopranos beat Lost????? Lost is one of the smartest, engrossing, addicting shows on TV!

    I'll go with Arrested Development or The Office for best comedy. But I think 30 Rock has potential to become a classic comedy.

    Six Feet Under should have been included in the Drama shows.

    I tried watching the pilot. I just couldn't get into it. Are there any particular episodes that will be more impressive?

    Yeah, it should've. Six Feet Under was a great show. And the series finale still stands as one of the best I've ever seen.

    The finale of season 4 where we find out what happened to Lisa. The end scene with David and his late father is also very touching. Also agree with the show finale, especially the last six minutes.
