Arrested Development: The Bluths are baaaack!
After a seven-year absence, the bumbling Bluths from Arrested Development are back! It’s time to say hello again to the family that put the “dysentery and fun” into dysfunctional.
On May 26, 15 brand-spanking new episodes of Arrested Development are being released on Netflix. I’m betting a lot of fans will be spending their Memorial Day weekend in front of the tube rather than at the family barbecue.
As part of its promotional campaign, Netflix has been touring the country with a Bluth Banana Stand. As you know, there’s money in that banana stand. The stand spent this past week in New York City, and last night at Yankee Stadium. Those lucky ducks! I bet at Fenway Park we’d get the Cornballer.
I won’t get into all the nonsense (and there was A LOT) that delayed the return of this wonderful show that was ridiculously axed too soon. Suffice it to say, Michael, Lindsay, George Michael, GOB, Buster and the gang are back, and I’m happy!
However, since it’s only on Netflix and not on TV, if you don’t subscribe to Netflix, have some fun, cozy up to someone who does, and let the laughter begin.
Arrested Development’s Season Four Trailer is FULL of Easter Eggs (intentional hidden messages and jokes), according to Vulture whose staff watched this trailer waaay tooo many times. They found quite a number of hidden gems such as a number on Lucille’s shirt that reads “HELLO” spelled upside down, and a restaurant specials sign that says “today’s verdict” is “GUILTY NO PAROLE.” How many in-jokes can you spot?
Dr. Tobias Fünke wants to get in on the action in the new series. To that end, he submitted an audition tape to Ron Howard titled: Insert Me Anywhere.
Yes, indeed! Let’s hope this poor Never-Nude, Disbarred Psychiatrist, Wanna Be Actor, Mrs. Doubtfire Impersonator, Blue Man, will be inserted… somewhere.
