Saturday Night Live alum Kristen Wiig has signed on to guest star in the upcoming Netflix revival of Arrested Development. In addition to Wiig, Seth Rogan has also agreed to appear on the show that will premiere on Netflix in May. It is unknown what role Rogan will play, but Wiig is rumored to be playing a younger version of Lucille Bluth (played brilliantly by Jessica Walter) which would make her Lucille 3 on the show.
If you are a fan of this blog, and there are many, you know that we are big fans of Arrested Development. The cancellation of this show represents all that is wrong with American Television. The fact that a brilliant show like Arrested Development can get cancelled while shows like 2 Broke Girls and Whitney continue to live just shows how incredibly stupid most Americans are.
We know that fans of our blog are no doubt fans of this brilliant show and are probably counting down the days to it’s premiere along with us so when I say most of America is stupid, I don’t mean those that are fans of Arrested Development of course.
We fans know however that so many people did not watch this show. I am concerned with all the news the revival is getting. I have always thought that this revival was done for us the fans. What I’m worried about now is that all the hype is going to bring other people in to watching the show. I am not ok with that. To be honest, if you didn’t watch the show when it aired originally, you shouldn’t get to watch the revival. That is just for fans. Yes, I am an Arrested Development snob, but it is necessary.
Can you imagine having to have a conversation with someone at work who just watched it for the first time? They aren’t going to understand anything about the Blue Man Group:
They won’t know that Franklin hates honkeys:
They won’t understand that Gob likes to dress well:
They certainly won’t understand what you mean when you say chicken dance:
We can’t have new people watching this show. It is for us. We don’t want new fans of Arrested Development. Rest easy fair fans. We will do something about this. Prior to the airing of the new season of Arrested Development, we will be posting a quiz here at MWTVG to gauge a prospective Arrested Development show watcher’s worthiness. If you pass the test, you will be allowed to watch the show. If you can’t, then you must go back to watching what is no doubt your favorite show, 2 Broke Girls.
All 14 episodes of the new season of Arrested Development will be posted on Netflix all at once in May. The exact date in May is TBD but when we find that day out, I’ll be calling in sick to work.
