Oh No! Netflix Limits Arrested Development

Netflix announced that their 14 episode order of previously canceled sitcom Arrested Development would be the only episodes they’d be producing.

I have to say, I’m disappointed. Not because I would ever watch this awful piece of crap show, because I wouldn’t, but because now we’ll all be subjected to additional years of the show’s small-in-number-but over-sized-in-obnoxious fans whining about the unfairness of it all.  This has been happening since it was cancelled off of normal TV.

Life Lesson: If you’re crying in your Cheerios because a sitcom got cancelled, you don’t get to be a snob about it.  You’re filling up the internet with tears over a sitcom. By definition, your tastes are not highbrow.

Life Lesson II: Anything with David Cross in it sucks, and that includes Amber Tamblyn.

We watched one episode of this – Season 1 Episode 1 – and never went back.  Pure unfunny garbage.  The smirking kind of non-funny. Like, “Is this ironic that it’s not funny? Are you playing a joke on me?”

Anyway, now we’ll have 14 episodes and then about 5 years of internet tributes to it.  Thanks, Netflix.

“We don’t anticipate being able to do seasons five, six, seven. We have less of a stake in it,” he said. “Arrested Development is a wildly successful tactic as opposed to fundamental to the strategy.”
