We 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.
