Arrested Development: Watch the Trailer for the Show's Return (VIDEO)

I'm still convinced that the return of Arrested Development is but a dream. But Netflix is doing its best to pinch me so I'll believe otherwise. Hey, stop it, Netflix! 

Tonight, the (network? streaming video service? incredible fantasy TV machine?) made its strongest argument yet that the incredible comedy really is coming back by releasing a Season 4 trailer with the most new footage of the series that we've seen. 


I've been purposely setting my expectations for the return of Arrested Development as low as I can to ease my fear of disappointment, but dammit, this trailer, which doesn't exactly set the world on fire, still has me a tad more excited than I'm trying to be. And how does almost everyone look like they haven't aged in the seven years that the show's been off the air? 

All 15 episodes of Season 4 will be released May 26 on Netflix.

2 questions:
I wonder how long of a time jump there will be since the last episode?
And is Ron Howard going to be narrating?

There it is then. Looks good, perhaps not as good as before but good enough. The idea that we don't spend time every episode with all those great characters is my chief concern.

Also, man was that Phoenix taxi door handle joke labored, how did they even find chrome door handles like that? That's a long way to go for a bad joke. Awesome!

Now that I've seen this 4-5 times... I must say, I love what I see so far. Looks like they've kept the style in tact, both in terms of writing and directing, and it just looks like a lot of fun. I'm really excited for this, so hopefully it will live up to the quality of the older episodes.

I'm really hoping for good with this. I love AD, and I love every episode of the first three seasons. However, I had a bad feeling that this season is just going to be a lot of callbacks to old jokes, and won't be saying anything new. God, I really hope I'm wrong. I'm not trying to be negative, but I've been pumped for this for going on five years now. It has to be perfect.

As long as they go nowhere near those terrible "for British eyes only" episodes... I'll be happy.

I don't know why but Buster's "M-m-m-m-m-m-ma!" line bugged me... seems oddly out of character in seeing it. Oh, well. I don't know anything when it's out of context like that.

Everything else, though, YIPPIE!

Kitty is still crazy, Buster is still high on juice, stairway vehicle still runs after all these years and Hurray for Tobias apparently so... yeah, AD is back.

This trailer alone puts every current (and future!) comedy to shame. Welcome back, AD!
