Oh. lol. Well then.
Also, are you sure the IFC episodes are uncut?
Reports are that they are entering pre-production and starting to write.
I have to admit I am pretty nervous when I keep hearing that each episode will focus on one character and what they have been doing. This show works as an ensemble with storylines weaving the different characters together, and having "straight man" Michael to play off. I'm concerned that they will basically have one character in the lead per episode with one or two other cast members in cameos, to keep the costs down and work around the actors' schedules. That's a different show than what Arrested Development was. I hope I'm wrong.
Totally different show. But I'll take it.
I've watched this series so many times now that I have decided that Michael is every bit as crazy as the rest of the family. He just pretends to be the "straight man".
I get your concern about the one character per episode thing. I trust that they will be able to pull it off. Every episode of this show was pure brilliance. I don't think there is a single one that I can say is bad. This might be the only show I can say this about.
But how will Netflix stream the show? All episodes available at one time as is their usual practice, or one new episode a week as is standard elsewhere with new shows?
If one episode a week, then you'd have to wait until everyone else had seen it to make a short sub work.
Their first original series will be released as a full season, not week to week. I am guessing they will see how successful that model is first.
Here we go again maybe: 'Arrested Development' back for fifth season? - CNN.com
I so want another season. Can't wait!!
I want another season, but I hope it's not as experimental as the last one was.
I hope it is. But in a different way.
I like it when they take chances.
I've heard that somewhere out there someone has re-edited the 4th season into more chronological episodes (like the first three seasons) and it supposedly makes that 4th season much easier to watch. I'd love to see that. And hopefully, if they do make a 5th season, Mitch Hurwitz has learned from S4 and won't make that mistake again.
I loved this show when it was on Fox, but only watched a 2-3 episodes of S4 on Netflix. I just didn't like the format and found it less than funny. Not sure if I'll be back for S5, but I could be persuaded
To be fair to him, if it was a mistake it wasn't entirely his fault. The actors weren't available to make a more traditionally-structured series of episodes. It was do that, or not do anything at all.
Agreed, sort of. I guess it depends on how that re-edited version of S4 works. Because if he could have still shot the scenes the way he did, but then edited them together differently to make it more like the first three seasons, then maybe that was a mistake.
There was supposed to be an official "chronological" version of Season 4. Ron Howard even recorded new narration for it (he tweeted a photo from the recording studio almost two years ago).
Weird, two years ago tomorrow. I haven't heard anything about this for a long time though.
You have to look at it like it's one really long episode and each of those episodes with one or two characters is just a really long scene.
I'm just gonna leave this here:
Was that new Netflix season really in 2013? Can't believe that was 4 years ago.
