Okay, a moment of Bluth: Last night’s Inside the Actors Studio, which featured much of Arrested Development‘s cast and the show’s creator, wasn’t exactly essential viewing.
For starters, several key players were missing — including David Cross, Michael Cera, and Tony Hale. (A Bluth reunion with no Buster?! Sacrilege!)

I almost wish the Studio had instead welcomed only a few of AD‘s stars, especially if the entire cast wasn’t going to be around anyway; at least that way, we could have gone a little bit deeper.
Still, the episode was an entertaining hour of television — and it had a fair share of illuminating moments. Here are the top few, plus a couple extra tidbits gleaned from the additional video clips posted on Bravo’s website:
