Realistic Expectations: Arrested Development – May 1, 2013

Arrested DevelopmentWe are now less than a month out from the release of the new episodes of Arrested Development.  This is the day us fans have waiting for over many years.  I had given up hope, despite the rumors that continued to fly around about a film.  Finally, the day came, when I heard the news that Netflix would be airing a new season.

As my excitement has grown, I’ve begun to wonder if my expectations for Arrested Development can ever be met.  I mean, how many times have I looked forward to a film, only to be disappointed.  The one that stands out most clearly in my memory is The Matrix 3.  I waited in line for the midnight showing, all dressed in black, and eager for the completion of the trilogy.  A couple of hours later I emerged dejected, disappointed and despising the Wachowski brothers.  It was so bad that it made me retroactively hate the second Matrix.  Today, I just try to pretend the second and third films just don’t exist so that I can appreciate the original.

So, my fear in Arrested Development is that after all this waiting, the new episodes can never meet my unrealistic expectations.  Or that they will be just plain bad.  Only time will tell, but in the meantime, clips like these make me eager for May 26.
Please, please, please don’t be bad!
