Way back when, in the year 2003, a little show came on television called Arrested Development. Underwatched and underappreciated, although critically-acclaimed, the show lasted an impressive three seasons before Fox pulled the plug, leaving legions of college students sitting slack-jawed and teary-eyed in their underwear, whispering “….why??” at a blank television set. (This was before internet TV, if you can remember such a primitive time in human existence.)
For years following, rumors swirled about an Arrested Development movie; rumors that would be confirmed and then denied and then confirmed again only to be dashed away months later when everyone forgot about it. Then, in 2012, Netflix, internet TV/movie savior and platform of the people, confirmed what many had only dreamed of: the resuscitation of the franchise with all-new episodes, featuring our favorite actors bringing the beloved Bluth family back from the dead.
