I like the post, but Mitch reeeeeeeeeeeeally needs to work on his handwriting. I had to squint and tilt my head sideways just to get through that. Ack!!! I kid. I know that he is just trying to get his thoughts down as quickly as possible before it disappears. Thanks for this. I want to watch this right now, but I have to burn through a few other things before they expire before I get around to Season 4 of AD.

There's a rule in Hollywood: don't let ANYONE know you have good handwriting, otherwise you'll be writing ALL the index cards and signs.  So nobody owns up to it.

Wasn't sure whether to share this one, but here's a little evidence that the new season might have gotten a BIT too geeky with its' references:

Arrested Development - Season 5 Or A Movie

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MfjruO_B8YA


If it were up to me, it would be Season 5 over a movie any day of the week. They ONLY reason why I was championing a movie before was because I thought this would be the only way to get my AD fix. I don't think anyone on the planet would choose a movie over another full season of the Bluth Family. With Season 5, we would be getting 13 episodes or so, but with a movie, we'd only be getting 90 minutes, i.e. 3 episodes of content.

Season 5 > Movie

But if we could get both. Now that's something even sweeter!

Doing Season Five would be a huge apology to the fans for season four... not that it should be apologized for so much but I think fans really want to see the "old" Arrested Development instead of the character-centric episodes (which I knew would be an issue).  And considering the insane amount of contract negotiations for rights and salaries, it seems crazy to do that again for a movie which would have a diminishing return since only fans would CONSIDER going to the theater... most people will wind up watching it on Netflix anyway, why not cut out the middleman?

I've been hearing a lot of bad reviews for Season 4, which is very disappointing for me. I kinda knew beforehand that the character specific episodes would feel off, especially when the original run was all about the entire family more or less in the same room. With that out of the way, and Season 5 a possibility, this will have enough breathing room that they can work on a more streamlined schedule for all the actors so that they can be on the set at the same time rather than shooting everything out of order, weeks apart.

I'm holding off on my opinions of good/bad because of "A Bit Of Fry And Laurie."  The first time I saw season three I didn't like it, it was totally different than the first two, they got rid of recurring characters I loved, the look had changed, all of that... but now I watch them just as often as I watch seasons one and two-- which is a LOT.  And I didn't get Arrested Development at first either.  Plus, I've only seen the new season once, and AD just gets better the more you watch it.

What it's like is seeing an old friend after a long time-- you think things will be the same, and they sort of are but they sort of aren't.  And it takes some work to get a new balance going.

I immediately 'got' AD when it premiered. I got all the inside jokes, everything. I knew exactly what Mitch was doing and became a HUGE fan from day 1. I went out and told all my friends that this was going to be the next 'Big Thing'. Unfortunately the ratings told a different story and those friends I tried to get to watch, wouldn't bother to give it a try. F*ck 'em!

All the problems with the new season come from the new format, even though they do amazing things with it-- I feel that if it WASN'T "AD," people would be singing a different tune.  And if we do get a Season Five, I think that'll change people's opinions on it (the ending of the season, actually, is SURE to annoy people-- but I think it invites a rewatch since there's questions that aren't answered immediately).

But there ARE some brilliantly funny things going on with the new season, tons of great cameos (the cast of Workaholics, Bruce McCollough, Keri Russell!) but the best stuff in AD comes from the family interacting with each other (who else but the Bluths could have a one-word argument about bees?) and because they're all separate, we're not getting that as much.

Well, I KNEW that there would be a fan-edit of the fourth series, the second they announced the one-character-per-episode format I knew some die-hards would re-cut it to feel like the old seasons, but I had NO IDEA that anyone would do it that quickly.  That's gotta be some kind of record.

I will definitely watch the original cut before diving into the fan edit version. Still waiting on news for Season 4 on DVD, in spite of the negative reaction by fans.

What prompted me to look into all things Arrested Development is that for the past couple of days I have been itching to buy Season 4 on DVD as I never saw it on Netflix and the main reason why I didn't had to do with the poor reviews from fans across the globe. It's ironic that the one thing that kept me away is now being addressed by Mitch himself. I don't want to see how it played originally, especially if Mitch and cut the entire season to reflect what we got in Seasons 1-3. So, I can definitely wait a little bit longer to see this new and hopefully improved version. And no, the original Season 4 was never released on DVD. Problem solved.

Just an update on this thread in particular. I've renamed it for Season 4 since the bulk of the talk had to do with said season with only a hint of a potential movie and I've also moved it to the Television's section for obvious reasons. Any future talk about an Arrested Development Movie will go in a new thread specifically for that.
