Review of chapter "Slayer Development" from ambe
I've never seen Arrested Development yet I still found myself grinning as I read this. I might also possibly have cackled with glee when I read about Faith's upcoming appearance.
Loved this section:
Andrew did know what Xander was talking about. For Andrew is a Never Nude. Which means pretty much what it sounds like. But Andrew is not alone. There are literally dozens of people in North America who suffer from this condition.
Xander looked at Andrew, pondering what to say. Finally, Xander simply got out of the car.
“I sure I don't want to know.” He muttered.
Xander was correct. He wouldn't want to know.
You probably didn't want to know either.
Sorry about that.

Review of chapter "Slayer Development" from tallyvision
I've recently started writing notes as I read fanfiction so that I can write long, meaningful reviews, and so I can make sure to include various lines and/or scenes I really enjoyed. I filled up an entire page as I read this story.
Firstly, the narration was spot on. I could hear Ron Howard in my head as I was reading it. The part about "unnecessary narration" reminded me of something that would have happened on the show.
Secondly, I have two rhetorical questions for myself. One- How much do I love Andrew? Answer: A lot. Two-How much do I love Andrew in this story? Answer: Even more than a lot. You got his character spot on from the first words he spoke. "Hail fellow warrior of the light." Epic win. Plus, major props for the never-nude!Andrew. Dozens of people have this condition. Wonderful. Absolutely wonderful.
Thirdly, "I've made a huge mistake." Mad props for including this.
Fourthly, the description of Maeby pretty much made my life. "May or may not have a twin sister." Just perfect. Also, the fact she thought Xander was pitching her a movie was just too excellent for words.
Fifthly, Ann. (Yes, her.) Just yes. The scene in the car with the "Bland" "Ann" "Egg" "Ann" and so on, back and forth was amazing.
Sixthly, Yay for pirates...or homosexuals, you choose.
Seventhly (which I don't believe is a real word), George using Xander to teach Buster a lesson was classic.
Lastly, the "On the next..." segment was the icing on a wonderful fanfic.
[One small note, there were a couple of places in the story where you wrote "Fumke" instead of "Funke" That's not a big thing, just a tiny typo, but I thought I should point that out.]

ONG this is great! You captured the essence of Arrested Development and managed to add Xander to the mix! Excellant work:)
Andrew and Tobias-lol, I can so imagine that.
Are we going to be seeing any more of ths storyline in the future?

Review of chapter "Slayer Development" from annakovsky
Oh MAN, this is SO AMAZING. Hilarious and clever - and you got the tone of both shows so well. I loved how you used the narration, and Xander's impatience with Andrew, and him faking his eye being put out to teach them a lesson. Just fantastic.

Review of chapter "Slayer Development" from eponine
I'm crying, really I am. Of course, it's mostly tears of laughter, so I suppose that's a good thing. This is quite possibly the most disturbingly hilarious thing I have ever read (I'm fairly certain that's a compliment). I'll be having nightmares about Tobias and Andrew for some time, thank you very much (words cannot convey how disturbed I am by their... interaction), but at least I have the image of Xander's lesson to get me through the tough times. See- now I'm thinking about it, and I'm laughing again. Good times.

Review of chapter "Slayer Development" from Nyn
ha ha ha! I loved this. You got the tone so perfect for Arrested Development. I had no problems at all picturing the characters and voices. It was sooooo funny. Thank you so much for writing this and I look forward to more from you.

Review of chapter "Slayer Development" from Kei
Dude, get your own account, your writing does deserve it. I've been in withdrawl since I saw the last of Season 3. This had me laughing and scrambling for my AD DVDs in the same five minute span.
Two favorite parts:
Buster was, well, Buster.
And the Ann/Egg/Bland part
Classic stuff. Loved the narrator integration as well. And well, the bit at the end was beyond priceless.
Any more AD crosses up your sleeve?

Review of chapter "Slayer Development" from Mari
You definitely got the Arrested Development rhythmn down. This is hilarious. I could hear Ron Howard as I was reading.
Also, Xander really should've known better than to mess with Giles.
