Arrested Development (Sun, Netflix)

We all mourn the TV masterpieces cut off in their prime — shows like My So-Called Life and Freaks and Geeks, which could have offered so much more pleasure if only low ratings hadn’t gotten in the way. For many of us, such tragic cancellations prove there is no God.

The dysfunctional-family comedy Arrested Development suffered such a premature death, having been axed in 2006 after only three seasons. But what’s this? The series is back with 15 new episodes, released simultaneously on Netflix? With original cast members Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Will Arnett, Portia di Rossi, Jeffrey Tambor and Jessica Walter?

I can’t wait to watch the episodes all in one sitting. But first I have to go to church and give thanks.
