    I'm old school, only get Netflix through the mail, so I cant watch it yet. :(


    Bastard! I just prematurely loaded the streaming function after reading this. I had planned to do that tomorrow AM. And for what? Nope, not yet.

    I'm pretty stoked though.

    And, get streaming, will ya?

  • I'm 2.5 in and it seems okay. In AD fashion, the first few seem to prolonged set-ups for other episodes.

    My GF's totally capping on how giddy I am over it.

  • Well, I powered through all 15 episodes and while I'm not going to rank this season in an effort to compare it to other seasons, I do believe it is worthy to say it ranks among them. Given the impossible, unprecedented task the writers and cast had of of following up (7 years later), in my opinion the greatest comedy ever made, I think they have done it and done it admirably.

    While it was a little jarring at first to settle into the new structure, after about episode 5 or so it all came together and felt like Arrested Development again. I'll admit it was disappointing that the full ensemble feel from the first 3 seasons is gone, but the fact that the writers put together something that worked like this in effort to accommodate the actors' schedules is a feat in itself. I can't wait to watch this season again, as like all the Arrested Development episodes, I think this will only get better with repeated viewings to pick up any jokes that I missed the first time around.

    All that being said, at the same time they managed to commit the greatest crime I could have possibly imagined for a new season of AD...WARNING SPOILER BELOW

    Franklin got ruined in the laundry mat, but he should be revived.

    My favorite line from the new season so far - "I'm not a limo driver, I'm a gentleman bee keeper."

    He got re-dyed and made a couple of appearances in Season 3 during the mock trial and as Justine Bateman's pimp.

  • I watched all 15, and enjoyed it. Working within the constraints of the availability of the cast made for some tedious recaps, even
    if it was from a new POV. Still, I'll watch it again now that I have seen the entire season arc.

  • I watched them all in 2 sittings, starting at midnight when they were released. Love it absolutely. I'm going to have to watch at least 3 times to catch all the gags and character crossovers. I can't imagine any show being able to catch up on 7 years with so many characters and have it all fit and be just as hilarious as the original stuff. Expertly done. Looking forward to more!
