Netflix has transformed the entire movie rental industry, putting Blockbuster out of business, along with every single “mom and pop” video rental store in the world with its online movie rental, disc-to-door and zero late fees service. This shouldn’t be breaking news to anyone; if it is, well, you’re welcome! With competition however comes, or should come more product enhancements and diversification, which is exactly what Netflix did with its more recent foray into a digital-only service, which allows its members to stream their favorite movies and television shows right to their flat screen tv’s, iPhones, and iPads without even having to get up off the couch. I’m a very happy Netflix digital subscriber, but those who join me in that subscriber group are well aware of the only true, major downside (if you can really argue one for an $8/month service) in that the movie selection is really limited. Unless you like movies like “Life After Porn Ends”, and other “they really made a documentary out of that?”-type titles, which is cool, I guess. Regardless though, you can’t beat $8 bucks a month, and there are plenty of awesome TV shows to keep you entertained before the next major movies get released on your home menu (Archer, Arrested Development, Mad Men, etc), but I digress. What you are about to encounter below is something that every Netflix fan should keep on hand, whether on hand, or hanging on your wall: it’s a “What to Watch on Netflix Flowchart”, and to call it “comprehensive” would be an understatement of epic proportions.
It’s finally here, and thanks to my shoddy wireless router, I have fallen well behind the pack with the long awaited fourth season of Arrested Development. Almost simultaneous to the show’s release on Netflix does my wireless router decide to revert back to ancient Internet speeds, making my streaming Netflix basically un-watchable. You know it’s bad when you can’t even watch a hilarious YouTube video on SQ because it takes 15 minutes to load; thankfully, yesterday, I was able to fix the problem and enjoy the first three episodes of Season 4. So what are my initial thoughts on the season everyone has been waiting for all these years? If you haven’t seen the first three episodes yet, and don’t appreciate a good spoiler, then I’d hold off on hitting that tantalizing link below; that was your warning. The rest of ya’all, click away.
Ladies and gentlemen, Mr and Mrs Tobias Funke. We are less than four freaking days until the long awaited Season 4 (are we calling it a “season”?) of arguably one of the best television shows in history, Arrested Development. The cast has been filming around the clock, and when they’re not recording episodes, they’re jumping in front of the camera taking interviews to ratchet up the marketing plan. If you don’t have Netflix digital yet, what in the world are you waiting for? Do you realize this amazing show will be live in less than four days? And are you also aware that a Netflix digital subscription only costs $8 freaking dollars? No, we’re not on commission, but maybe we should be. I can’t wait! Enjoy the Funke family interview, and we’ll have more to follow!
In just 15 short days, Arrested Development will be back on the airwaves courtesy of the fine folks over at Netflix digital; if you haven’t signed up for Netflix yet, you’re wrong; it only costs like $9 per month. On top of that, you can easily Google for a free trial and simply start it up on May 26th; that should get you at least a few episodes for free if you’re that cheap. So in honor of this rapidly approaching, monumental date in TV history, I present to you the unofficial 200 greatest quotes video from Arrested Development. This will be the best ten minutes you spend all day, that is, unless you decide you want to hang out around SQ longer; then your day will be even sweeter.
According to the show’s creator, Adam Reed, “Archer” can be described as “James Bond meets Arrested Development”. As a huge fan of both, I can emphatically say that if you haven’t seen this incredibly hilarious show yet, you’re wrong. Since its inception in 2010, Archer has stormed up the ratings charts not only on FX, but on television, and just recently completed its fourth season on the air, with a fifth already signed and on the books. That’s news that makes this guy smile.
Is it May 26th yet? If you’ve never seen the epic television series that is Arrested Development, then you have approximately 27.5 days to catch up. Oh, you’re going to need $8 bucks for a digital subscription to Netflix, because the long-awaited fourth season won’t be airing anywhere else. Embedded above you’ll find a clip that was originally released only to the media back in January, but now stands as the first official new Bluth family footage since the end of season three. Enjoy the exclusive outtake, and hit the link below for more AR memories.
