Drink the Vodka Before it Goes Bad with The ‘Arrested Development’ Drinking Game

Cult television shows always end up with a certain level of melancholy because their fans feel they were canceled long before their time. It is this fan devotion that keeps these shows alive in reruns and on the various home video platforms. However, once in a while, a show gets resurrected on a different network (like Cougar Town), as a major motion picture (like Serenity), or even on a totally different delivery platform (like Arrested Development moving to Netflix).

Arrested Development is one of those cult television shows that the fans refused to forget. It may never have been as popular as the similarly quirky but far more mainstream Seinfeld, but for the fans, it has worked its way into the fans’ lives as much as any show has. Take a drink to celebrate the series, and if watch enough episodes at once, you’ll end up as intoxicated as Lucille Bluth.

And now, to cover our butts… This game is only for people over the age of 21. Please drink responsibly, and don’t trust a Bluth… or a Fünke.
