Here at Cinema Blend, we hope youíre having the best Thanksgiving of your life, because the holidays are about spending time with those you love. (Among other gravy-covered things.) But weíre not so naÔve to think that happiness is the only emotion happening any time a big group of family members gets together. At least you don't have to spend the holidays with these people.
Anyone who has ever seen an episode of Arrested Development knows that it is about a selfish and totally messed up family who loses their fortune and gets into wacky shenanigans while coming to terms with their new monetary status. However, recently creator Mitch Hurwitz announced that originally Arrested Development was based around two clear premises that never made it into the show.
Fans of the cult series and physical media have been waiting well over a year for a DVD version of the Netflix-produced Season 4, and while there's still no guaranteed release date set, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment and show creator Mitch Hurwitz are asking for everyoneís help in designing the Season 4 DVD set. Itís Art Tested for Relevance. Cue the ukulele.
Arrested Development will likely be back for Season 5 on Netflix. Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos is quoted as expressing certainty that the beloved TV comedy will be back, it's just a matter of when.
"Now the story of a wealthy girl who lost everything, and the one family who had no choice but to help her keep it together. It's Orange is the New Black. Ok, Netflix, that's a pretty genius way to remind us that Orange is the New Black returns this Friday. The only problem is, now I'm torn between watching Arrested Development or bing-watching at least the last few episodes of Orange is the New Black in preparation of Season 2.
He and his banner The Hurwitz Company will officially be creating and producing new comedies for Netflix for at least the next two years. It wonít only be inside jobs though, as Hurwitz will be looking to develop series with other creators in a non-writing capacity, though he would still be an executive producer and consultant.
Valentine's Day isn't for everyone. Whether youíre single, sick of it all, or somewhere in between, finding a way to distract yourself on the overtly lovey-dovey day is a necessity. But weíre not proponents of the mentality that if youíre not in love you must be miserable and bitter instead. Itís silly, and stupid, and a waste of everyoneís time. Plus what sort of monster would encourage you to be unhappy? (Spoiler Alert: not me.)
2013 has been a great year for television, so narrowing down our list of favorites was no easy task.

The nominations for the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced today. As you may have surmised by the title, these awards celebrate excellence in acting as presented by the Screen Actors Guild (aka SAG). This yearís nominations put Behind the Candelabra stars Michael Douglas and Matt Damon up against one another, and the same for Top of the Lakeís Holly Hunter and Elisabeth Moss.
David Cross is guesting on Community next season? Try not to blue yourself over this news, but itís happening, and I think I speak for all of us when I say, huzzah! The Arrested Development star is Greendale Community-bound, and joins the continuously growing list of guest stars set to appear in the NBC comedy at some point in its upcoming fifth season.
Nothing is official or set in stone yet, so it's probably a bit premature to start celebrating this news, but it sounds like there's a chance Arrested Development will be renewed for another season. At the very least, talks are reportedly in the works to make that happen. Time has been ticking by like FakeBlock since the fourth season debuted back in May.
Spoilers if you still haven't gotten around to watching the fourth season of Arrested Development, or you haven't finished the season! Fakeblock has arrived! Finally, an app that fulfills all of your Fakeblock needs. In an era when internet privacy has become more and more of an issue, the Arrested Development Fakeblock app does absolutely nothing to solve the concern.
This seasonís disjointed structure and limited episodic focus was a far more successful way to tell this Bluthian story than I could have imagined, but the finale left me a tad too unfulfilled, and it hinted at the larger story that I wanted to get back into.
Even the offer of one month free isn't enough to stop people from pirating the new season of Arrested Development. Granted, not everyone has access to Netflix, which could explain at least some the pirated copies of the series that have been making their way onto the computers of fans. The series returned for its fourth season on Netflix on Sunday and has reportedly been downloaded more than 100,000 times within the first 24 hours.
