Re: New Arrested Development! (SPOILERS)

I stayed up late Saturday and watched the first 7 pistoles. Another four yesterday, before I went to a pool party and then watchedvthe final four this morning. The first episode is awkward, but when considered with the rest of the season is clearly just set up. It has otherwise all been brilliant. About my only critique is that Michael is kind of a douche now, which took some getting used to. But revisiting earlier episodes from the original run, he's always kind of had that douchebag element to his character, but it was always put aside by how much worse the rest of the family is. Here, he's on his own and without the rest of the Bluths to literally play off and be the "good guy" around, his douchiness basically comes out. Definitely looking forward to the movie or additional seasons now.
