    Arrested Development making a comeback

    One of the funniest shows ever made is returning for a 4th season (all on Netflix) and a movie in 2013.

    Any other fans?

    Fell in love with the show a few years ago.

    IFC plays reruns every now and then, it is still awesome.

    I am pretty excited for it, going to be interesting to see what they do, especially in regards to the younger characters as they aren't really kids anymore.

    Its a great show. Probably in my top 5 favorite of all time. Only comedies I ever enjoyed more were classic Simpsons (duh) and Parks and Recreations.

    The 4th season is apparently all just build up to the movie.

    First and second season were brilliant. I wasn't as high on the third season, but I'm definitely looking forward to this.

    Anything with Gob or Tobias is gold to me.

    Never thought I would like any show as much as Seinfeld, but Arrested Development is Damn close. never saw it when it was on FOX, but saw it all on Netflix and laughed my azz off. Anyone who has not seen it should.

    A smart, witty, and intelligent comedy. Made great use of the Larry David-esque technique of plating seeds to future episode story lines in advance. Possible best scene: Michael and his niece smiling into each others eye as they sing Afternoon Delight at the office Christmas party, completely oblivious to what the song is about.

    Tobias Funke, Analyst-Therapist (or analrapist)

    Great exchange:

    [Michael has found his brother, Gob, hidden in his office]
    Michael: One of those British guys came up to me and told me to back off. I can't believe it, but Dad may have been telling the truth. This may be dangerous.
    Gob: So you came back here to hide like a child.
    Michael: What are you doing locked in my office, exactly?
    Gob: Hiding from a child. Big difference.
    Michael: Gob, Steve Holt is your son. He probably just feels a connection.
    Gob: He doesn't know what he feels. I'm tired of being told - my God. What is this feeling?
    [Schmaltzy music begins to play]
    Michael: You know, the feeling that you're feeling is just what many of us call... a "feeling".
    Gob: It's not like envy, or even hungry.
    Michael: Could it be love?
    Gob: I know what an erection feels like, Michael. No, it's the opposite - it's like my heart is getting hard.
    [the music reaches its crescendo]
    Gob: Maybe I am ready to be a father.
