    I guess I belong to the generation that's of the belief that Arrested Development is only the greatest show ever to be on TV, and it's been off the air for 7 years. It's making its triumphant return to Netflix tonight at midnight (PST), and I couldn't be more excited.

    Anyone else here a fan? Thoughts/expectations for this season?

    I thought the first two seasons were really good. Anything after that was not as good. Maybe its just me. I'll still be watching :D

    Really? I thought it got better each season. The show became retrospective and self-aware (figuratively). The episode "Save our Bluths" I think is one of the best. If nothing else, watch that one, and the last episode of the third season, and you may be tempted to watch the rest of the third season if you haven't.

    My absolute favorite show! I don't know how many times I've watched the whole series (the last time the past two weeks) and I always find some new, hidden jokes. Can't wait!

    Yes! Every time I watch it, I appreciate more and more, and I find more connections and inside jokes. The show retains so much value for that reason. No one I've ever shown it to has disliked it.

    Yeah I hope it's good. I also remember seasons one and two being great, three not so much.

    I told my father abt the new season, he said he couldn't get into the show bec he found all the characters to be morally reprehensible or something, I was like 'that's the point!' Lol

    I'm done with the first five episodes. The first episode started of very unfamiliar, but it picks up after a while. I think they made a huge mistake by focusing each episode on a character and not the whole storyarc. While this gives more opportunities for their typical hidden jokes, the balance of the cast is totally off, making it a lot less easygoing than it was in the original run. Getting a longer look on each characters demons makes the show a bit dark. But it's not bad by a long shot and it great to see them back on the screen.

    Great way to put it. I've watched about 2.5 episodes and really the funniest parts to me were when they referenced back in some subtle way To the previous seasons.
