Arrested Development is one of those you don’t know what you’ve got until its gone shows. Floundering in the ratings during the initial run at Fox the show was brought back for a 5th season on Netflix. Due to how busy the actors schedules were, a different approach was taken that segmented the show up into different points in time focusing on one character at a time.
While it was nice to see the show back, it lacked a certain charm that the first four seasons had because the Bluths were hardly ever together. Almost immediately after the fifth season aired on Netflix, fans were looking for something a little more central to the original format.
