I don't know about that. I've read several articles written by critics who visited the sets, have spoken to actors and writers, and they all talk about how each episode stands on it's own and how the same scenes will be seen in several episodes, but from different character's perspectives. And that whether you see Gob's version first or Lindsay's or George Michael's doesn't really matter, and they'll all provide more context for each other.

All the critics get their talking points from the same place, and the actors and writers who are interviewed are directed by those same talking points. They've been talking about the "watch in any order" for a while, but since the creator is the one who is editing everything together, I'd trust his last minute guidance that he couldn't make it work. Or watch in any order you want.

I stand corrected. Thanks for the links.


I think that settles the question about the episode threads. Single thread per episode, with spoilers about previous episodes allowed. Just like every other show.

The possible problem for those who binge watch could be remembering specifically what happened in which episode. For some it's easier to go to one place to have a conversation rather than going to 15 different places. I agree that having separate episodes threads is probably the way to go but Netflix's model doesn't make it easy.

I also vote for single episode threads. But if there are some who want to participate in a whole-season thread, I say go for it.

Got my first huge laugh out loud reading about the new season in this interview in Time with Ron Howard:
Quote:
Without spoiling anything you donít want to spoil, can you talk a little bit about your acting role in the new season?

Iím not a central figure. But I am a plot point. And I particularly enjoy that the narrator is oblivious to who is Ron Howard. He couldnít care less who this Ron Howard person is. Just another specimen to be examined.

Arrested Development salaries...
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...n_3321438.html

Quote:
The revival of "Arrested Development" isn't your typical TV story. The entire cast reunited for new Netflix episodes, but not all at once, making it a tricky production and because of the way it was made, the cast of "Arrested Development" received an unusal salary breakdown, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Season 4 of "Arrested Development" is formatted with each character at the focus of at least one episode -- some have two. THR reports that therefore, each actor -- Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Tony Hale, Will Arnett, Portia de Rossi, Alia Shawkat, David Cross, Jeffrey Tambor and Jessica Walter -- received $125,00 for the episode she/he stars in. If the actor appears in more than 90 seconds of another actor's episode, they received $50,000. If it's less than 90 seconds, the actor received $10,000. If a clip from a previous episode is used, the actor received $1,000. Bateman is the only actor to appear in every episode.

"That show launched a lot of our careers and everyone is doing great, so to come back together while things are going well is really a fortunate situation," Bateman told GQ in March. "Everybody had to be big boys about not making it financially impossible."

Thrillist had an article on AD themed cocktails for your viewing parties.

Not many items that I've already got in stock, unfortunately. Fun read, though!

So, what time is it going to be available?
Will their servers be able to sustain the traffic?
This is an amazing experiment in my opinion.

edited out my typo...sorry.

12:01am Pacific Time.

I'm curious to see the length of each episode. For broadcast they were all about 22 minutes, but Netflix doesn't have the same constraints. Will they be 30 minutes? Longer?

I had read somewhere that most will be around 30 but a few of them are a little longer than that.

'Arrested Development' Season 4 Causes Surge in Broadband Traffic Over Memorial Day Weekend

Here's some interesting info on the web traffic driven by Arrested Development.

Quote:
- One DSL network had an astounding 36% of devices watching Netflix on Sunday watch at least part of one episode of Arrested Development. This was over 3x the number we saw for House of Cards (which had 11% viewing).

- Preliminary numbers show about 10% of viewers made it to Episode 15 on Sunday/Monday (More on this later today as we get data collated).

Well, so much for the individual vs. season thread. I figured by the time I woke up on Sunday morning, there would be individual threads for every episode. But there was only one for the first. I watched the first two and created a thread for the second, but those appear to be the only two individual threads. Meanwhile, the season thread someone created has 50+ replies and seems to be the preferred place for discussion. That's disappointing, since my wife wants to watch with me, which means I'll only be able to watch an episode or two per day, and it may be a couple weeks before we get through all of them. Because of the nature of that thread, I don't dare go in it at all until I'm done with all 15 episodes. I'd much prefer participating in individual episode threads after I finish each episode.

I'm staying out of the whole season thread, and will continue to post in, or create, individual season threads. Once I'm done with the whole season, I'm going to smeek the living hell out of the whole season thread.

I was watching masses of episodes at once, late at night, and nobody would have been posting (or replying if I started the threads). I watched the first 4 episodes after midnight PST when they went live.

For me, there was just no way to discuss on a per-episode basis. Do I stop watching to comment? No, because I wanted to watch. Post in one while watching the next episode? No, I would miss things, I wanted to be engaged.

So the next day, I'd forgotten which episodes contained which content, and just continued on. For me, the entire season thread turned out to be the right place to be.

For the first person, who is ahead of everybody else, that's correct. For everyone who is following behind, it's a place you have to stay out of until you've watched all 15, because someone is ahead of you and will spoil something before you've seen it.

I'll be watching slow and will prefer single episode threads. If they aren't there yet when I watch an episode, I'll create one.

I'm with you. I say us slow pokes just create episode threads as we go. The full season thread is useless unless you're the first one or don't mind spoilers.

I think that's a good idea. I can say though, I haven't posted any spoilers, or at least ones you would understand without watching it. I'll gladly join in threads you guys create.

Can we discuss how the show is, spoiler free? I've seen a few posts on FB/twitter and people seem disappointed by it.
