Netflix Gems | Arrested Development.

Notwithstanding the constantly growing catalog of available content on Netflix Instant, I know there are a lot of people out there who feel like they can’t find anything to watch.   With this periodic series – Netflix Gems – I aim to introduce you to movies, tv shows and documentaries you may not know are hiding in there.  While Netflix is still lagging behind where I think it should be on new releases and current seasons of television, there’s a whole bunch of awesome there as well, so let's talk about it right here.

I don't think I can say anything about Arrested Development that the Internet hasn't  already covered since the show first went off the air in 2006.  C and I are currently five episodes into Netflix's revived season 4, and I can't decide how I feel about them yet.  They are...different, but not necessarily good or bad.  We're doing an episode or two each night to savor them a bit, and I'm more on board with each one.  

In case you're a big fan of the show like me and haven't come across it yet, Recurring Developments is a seriously impressive fan-made website documenting all the recurring gags in the series.  And then there's the Arrested Development Documentary, released at the beginning of May, with great cast interviews and insight from Mitch Hurwitz and Ron Howard and the rest of the team who made the first three seasons all they were.  I really enjoyed it.

If you're just now coming to the series, I highly recommend starting from the very beginning, with season one, episode one.  Jumping in with these new episodes would be confusing :)
