If you’re fans of Arrested Development, this is probably old news to you. The show is coming back to television on May 26th.
Well, I guess Netflix is considered television. At least give me some credit that I know what Netflix is. I kind of know how it works, but then again I don’t. I don’t keep up on this new stuff, but please don’t feel bad for me or think I’m stupid. It’s my choice.
Arrested Development ran for three seasons on Fox from 2003 to 2006. The show developed a cult following which means it had a small audience which means that the network had to finally cancel it. I found out about the show through my son who put all three seasons on my computer.
I watched every show at least three or four times and laughed my ass off each time. Every time I watched an episode I had already seen, I found something I missed previously. The show is so quick and smart.
Keep in mind, I was laughing at Arrested Development two or three years after the comedy went off the air.That’s how I am when it comes to good teevee shows. I’m usually a day late and a dollar short. I didn’t find out about Mad Men until the fourth season. Again, enter my son who let me know how good that show is.
Netflix has produced 15 new episodes of Arrested Development. It may take me a while to get around to watching them (again, I’ve have to count on my son to help me), but I look forward to the return of the Bluth Family. From judging from the previews I’ve seen, the show is still funny and intelligent. You don’t find that very often on the tube these days.
I’ll be back on Thursday.
