Netflix released nine teaser posters for the upcoming fourth season of Arrested Development.
May 26th can’t get here fast enough!
From Entertainment Weekly:
Netflix announced today that the upcoming season of Arrested Development will debut on May 26 at 12:01 am PT, which marks the cult comedy’s return to TV after a three-season run on Fox from 2003 to 2006. Similar to its strategy with original series House of Cards, the streaming service will release all 15 new episodes of Arrested simultaneously. (Netflix joked that it had made a “huge mistake” in the number of episodes, a reference to its January announcement that the new season would consist of 14 installments, which was already an upgrade from the original tally of 10.)

Another wonderful film from Danny Boyle. I have enjoyed every movie of his that I’ve seen (I’ve avoided A Life Less Ordinary). It occured to me while watching this movie that I really enjoy Boyle’s creative choices and that’s why I gravitate towards his films. A movie about a guy with his arm trapped under a rock. How do you make that work? I don’t want to spoil anything but Boyle doesn’t make a single misstep and by the time you get to the end, you might get a little teary-eyed like I did. Also, regarding the scene that may stop you from watching, it’s bad but it doesn’t last that long. Frankly, it could have been a lot worse.
Also, kudos to James Franco who, in my mind, is neck and neck for best acting performance of 2010 with Colin Firth in The King’s Speech. They were both amazing but I think Franco had the bigger challenge, having to carry this movie by himself for the most part unlike Firth who had Geoffrey Rush to bounce off of. It seems like only yesterday that I was complaining how bad Franco was as Harry Osborn in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films.
On a final note, after the movie ended, my first thought was, “If only Aron watched Arrested Development, then he would have learned the ‘…and that’s why you always leave a note’ less.”
Nominations I’d Like To See: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actor for James Franco.
Now, let me just say off the bat that I do not believe these are the 50 best shows of this decade (although some certainly are). These are just the 50 television shows that brought me the most entertainment, the ones that I am most fond of when I think back on the decade. I contemplated doing this in order of love/respect but then this post would never get done so I’ll do a Top 10.
I decided to leave off The Simpsons and South Park because they’ve been on for so long (and I needed any excuse to make room for other shows) but they both had great episodes in the 00′s and if I didn’t need the room, they’d make the cut.
I tried to stick with shows that had at least two full seasons under its belt unless the show had been canceled like Freaks and Geeks.
And, no, I’ve never watched The West Wing or ER and that’s why they aren’t on the list.
It still stings…
