So the new season of Arrested Development has finally streamed on Netflix to what appears to be heavy streaming of the new episodes, disappointment from critics, and a stock tumble because reception of the fourth season wasn’t as good as expected. I will be honest, I remember when the show premiered on Fox, I wasn’t a fan. I guess I wasn’t the only one because it peaked at about 6 million viewers and was about 120 on the ratings list. Sure you can blame Fox for poor scheduling but it just never caught on during it’s run even though the critics lauded it.
But unlike the Fox run, as my cartoon alludes to the poor ratings, those critics got the buzz continuing and it saw new life on streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu. So the rabid fan base couldn’t wait till the new season. Sadly the critics aren’t as giddy with Season 4 so we will see if there is a Season 5.
Are you an Arrested Development fan? What am I missing?
