The Bluths are Back!

Arrested Development ranks as (at least) my co-favorite television show. (Sports Night puts up a good fight). I will admit it took a couple of episodes for me to fall in love, but once I fell, I fell hard. A combination of pop culture references, witty one liners, and jokes that pay off several episodes later, Arrested Development literally never gets old.

So, obviously I am very excited about premiere of 15 new episodes that drop on Netflix tomorrow at 2am, Central Time. There has been lots of hand wringing and worry going on around the internets about this “season” of A.D. Will it be funny? Does it make sense to revisit the Bluths right now? Honestly, I am not worried. I am still so giddy that I get to see the whole Bluth (and friends!) clan again that I am not sure it could disappoint. My hope is that the new episodes reward longtime viewers, but also bring in new ones.

I will likely be live tweeting as I watch (@ilovethebluths), though I make no promises on the quality of 2 am tweets. I will be back for thoughts once I have digested all the eps, so for now I will say that despite exclamations of “getting rid of the Seaward”, “I will leave when I am good and ready!”
