Arested Development Netflix entire season SPOILERS

Only on the 4th episode but some really funny moments so far:
Bob Loblaw law bomb!
There's a girl in his room.
I can tell Ron Howard to F*** himself.
Really enjoying it so far.

I am enjoying it as well.

All of the Ron Howard stuff is great.

They don't have the previous seasons on Netflix? ETA, oh wait looks like they do. Rob Dawn's comment about watching them on DVD confused me.

I can't imagine them taking it down any time soon. They're using it to bring new customers in.
Or, what TB said.

Steve Holt (Justin Grant Wade) looked very different and I wouldn't have recognized him either.

She's aged, not plasticized, but looks like she lost weight on the itty bitty frame she already had.

I don't know, her face is different, I am guessing cheek implants since they are not moving

I looked up some recent pictures and she looks more like her old self, it's something about how she looks in the show.

While the producers stated that these could be watched in any order, I don't think that is the case at all. Some of the jokes are setup as they go along, and if you watched them out of order it would get lost.

I think they backed off on that.

Mitch Hurwitz left a note for the fans...

When this was conceived, the thought was that it was going to lead to a movie but that is still a long ways a way from happening. (They definitely were meta about that when Ron Howard was casting Opies and Michael said he's been hearing about that movie for 40 years.)
Sounds like Netflix would love to do another season but nothing has been finalized yet.

I opined in the "trailer" thread in Happy Hour that they'd shot the airport scenes at Ontario, but it was actually Burbank-Bob Hope standing in for every airport (including India, with the picture mirrored so the traffic is flowing the other way).

I haven't quite finished yet, but it is strange to watch considering that the season spans 5+ years hops back and forth so much with the different POVs.

Some great call backs you can miss if you blink.

The back of the campaign banner in ep 8, Red Hairing.

The "You're killing me Buster" banner.

I was pretty much underwhelmed by Season 4. There were some laughs, but it felt off for some reason.

The only thing I've found off is Jeffrey Tambor's portrayal of Oscar. Part of it is he doesn't have hair, but there used to be a much bigger gap between Oscar & George.

And for the record, I *hate* the fact that they re-cast young George & Lucille. I kind of liked the fact that it was just different hairstyles in flashback. That and the fact that Seth Rogen just can't act.

The first 3-4 episodes were very strong but after the 5th or 6th I was watching just to get through them.

*sigh*

I watched in chunks of 4 or 5 episodes at a time... 4 after midnight when they were released, 4 on Sunday morning, then a couple here and there Sunday afternoon. While there were some episodes better than others, taken as a whole, they had their place (like some of the lighter episodes of Lost).

I don't see how some people are expressing such disappointment. For me, it's certainly not Star Wars prequels or Ren & Stimpy disappointment. More like Doctor Who revival enjoyment.

I swear, the interaction in later episodes that built from the earlier ones reminds me of Primer.

What happened to all the people warning episode specific requests.

Disappointment comes from unrealistic expectations.

I just finished Episode 5 - Tobias, that one came together well seeing the off-camera interactions with Lindsey's story.

Part of the problem with binge watching is I have a hard time remembering what happens in specific episodes rather than just a general "it happened at some point". With AD, some events are happening in multiple ones (Tobias doing his little twirl in the maritime courtroom for instance). That makes it difficult for me to post to a specific episode thread, at least until someone else mentions something.
