Fans have waited seven years for Arrested Development's return (or a year, if you're a late-comer like me), after it was axed by Fox after three seasons. It's now become the flagship resurrection for online rental service Netflix, who've taken the strange decision to release all 15 episodes simultaneously around the world on 26 May.
We've already had the discussion about the pro's and con's of such a delivery, when all 13 episodes of House of Cards was likewise made available together, but Arrested Development's creator Mitchell Hurwitz promises it makes more sense in this show's case. It apparently won't even matter what order you watch them each instalment in, which sounds... um, odd. We'll have to see how successful this little experiment is, but the good news is a very funny sitcom is making a miraculous comeback. Netflix's 'miniseries' is also a primer for a feature-length movie Hurwitz still intends to make, too, so the Bluth family are most definitely BACK.
Oh, and the above trailer looks very funny. Not quite hilarious, but funny. I need more context for some of these jokes, but it made me smile and I love a good underdog story. It's just nice to see all of these characters and actors back, and every so slightly bizarre only Alia Shawkat appears to have aged.
