The Arrested Development reunion continued marching forward on Tuesday when creator Mitch Hurwitz and several members of the cast appeared onstage together at a Netflix-sponsored event in Las Vegas. Check out the videos, and talk with other uber-fans, here.
Love the method they're releasing it in, it's perfect for Netflix, and I love even more that Hurwitz (and I'm assuming the cast as well) seems so genuinely jazzed to go even further beyond this. The anthology style would've been interesting, going off the bits of the Buster-centered episode they spoke about at the New Yorker panel, and also just because it would've been the most ridiculous character study of all time. However, there will probably still be bits and pieces of that format hidden in the new episodes somewhere, and I'm honestly not surprised that they found themselves going back to what worked so well before while they were writing.
I also just want to say that everybody bitches about what Netflix does wrong, but man, do they get a lot right. Very excited for its return. I wasn't before, but now that it's actually happening, I'm ecstatic.
