They better, because that farking ending was just a lot of plot threads dangling around with no resolution.
 
2013-05-31 10:23:40 AM
it is only worth doing if they can bring all the actors in at the same time and shoot the scenes where they are all together.

The original idea, as I understood it, was to do one last season followed by a movie.

They left way too much stuff in the air for a movie. There are like 10 different plot threads that they need to address.

Having restrained myself and limited my viewing of the new season, I'm only halfway through so far but at this point I can't say I would be opposed to more.

Oh man I hope someone calls SWAT and they can free you from the man forcing you to read them at gunpoint!

They show up on the list of headlines.  There has to be something else in Entertainment going on than the daily payola headlines Fark greenlights for Arrested Development.

Not only you came in to complain about not wanting to read this thread, but you come back to see if people are giving you some attention. I would suggest you turn off the computer and go spend some time outside, because frankly that's kind of pathetic. Hope that helps!

No, it's still worth it if they can't do that, because Season Four was great.  But it would be *better* if they can do that.

Yeah, let me go adjust that Fark setting that turns off all the Arrested Development headlines.

Oh wait, there isn't one.

People leave those on?  I turned those off after I got the first one, since they were annoying as shiat.  But I generally prefer being ignored by most people anyway.  Also, I'm only on episode 11(taking my time, a little bit) and while this season definitely has it's strong points and weak points, I would love to see a Season 5.  It might be enough for me to get my own Netflix account and stop using my friends.

While everybody is still "OMG everything Arrested Development", I'd like to mention that the Mitchell Hurwitz animated series "Sit Down Shut Up" -- featuring the voice talent of Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, and Henry Winkler -- was far better than the treatment it got from Fox, namely pulling it from primetime after 4 airings and burning off the rest of the episodes Saturdays at midnight after MadTV.

It's Arrested Development. The writing on that show is so good they could wrap up 10 different plot threads in a single 30 minute episode. A movie could handily take care of everything.

You do realize, the kind of show this is, the dangling plot threads are part of the joke...

I loved firefly. I loved the movie.

But it's NOT going to happen. No one involved wants to revisit it. No one. Except fans.

Now re using the universe? That would be awesome. It was a damned cool setting and there are more stories to tell there, especially once the reavers are out.

I was wondering what happened to that show.  It was incredibly interesting and hilarious.  Really recommend it.

Don't worry.  I called Whine-One-One.  The Whambulance is on its way.

I'll probably watch this season of Arrested Development eventually.  I might be mean and try to do it all within a free one-month trial though.

Even if you're a Firefly superfan, I would think by this point you'd prefer either a cable network or an entity like Netflix would just call Joss Whedon and say, "hey, if you an idea for a show, any show, here's a buttload of money and creative freedom; GO!". A decade is looong time.

After the success of Breaking Bad, my takeaway is that I'd rather let a talented showrunner do whatever he wants and drop off five Brinks trucks in front of his driveway to make it happen, as opposed to, "hey, Vince, let's relauch the X-Files".

You're so inconsiderate Tats! If we didn't have threads were people could come in simply to tell us how much they don't care, what would else would those people have in life? Probably nothing.

I really didn't like the first few episodes. It felt. . . off. But by episode 5, and knowing WHY it's like that, it managed to reach the level of Arrested Development we know and love. Really well done by all the actors, and the way all the plots tie together is brilliant.

adammpower: You do realize, the kind of show this is, the dangling plot threads are part of the joke...


No they are not. They wrapped everything with a bow at the end of Season 3. When they know it's over completely they will wrap everything again with a neat little bow.
