“Previously, On Arrested Development”

NPR’s extremely impressive visual graph of the running gags from the show’s previous three seasons.

Your New TV Ruins Movies

Maybe you got a new TV for Christmas. Or maybe you just got one recently. Maybe you are thinking of buying one. Whichever is the case, take heed: your TV will try very, very hard to make whatever movies you watch on it look not just bad, but aggressively, satanically, puppy-drowningly bad.

TVs are designed to do one thing above all: sell. To do so, they must fight for attention on brightly-lit showroom floors. Manufacturers accomplish this in much the same way that transvestite hookers in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district do—by showing you everything they’ve got, turned up to eleven. You want brightness? We’ll scald your retinas. You want sharpness? We’ll draw a black outline around everything for you. Like bright colors? We’ll find them even in Casablanca. Oh, and since you associate “yellowing” with age and decay, we’ll also make the image as blue as a retiree’s bouffant on Miami beach.

Don’t miss the “smooth motion” section, or what I like to call the “soap-opera effect.” Turn it off!

I made this in honor of the series finale on Sunday, and to the end of a wonderful show. It will be missed. I’ve always thought that each season had a color representation in my head, so I tried to incorporate that in the illustration.
