Starting at Los Angeles' Gallery 1988 West this Saturday, June 14th, "Icons" showcases the work of Dan Kuhlken and Nathan Goldman, collectively known as DKNG. The technical talk is that "icon" refers to the object in a show or movie that distills its essence—like the DeLorean in Back to the Future, or the barge for Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. The non-technical talk is that this series of art is really damn pretty, and more people need to do Beavis & Butt-head illustrations. Read More

This excellent Thor: The Dark World/Arrested Development mashup comes courtesy of Leigh Lahav. Loki as Gob? I see it. "If you're saying I play favorites, you're wrong. I love all my children equally.

If anyone on the planet hadn't gotten the memo that some of the best TV being done today isn't on TV, this should drive that message home.
Those of you who are up early watching the Emmy nominations roll in this morning -- as well as, y'know, those of you who know where Twitter is -- have no doubt already heard, but it's worth mentioning that Kevin Spacey just landed a well-deserved Emmy nomination for Best Actor for his work in the Netflix original series House of Cards. That will come as no surprise to anyone who watched the excellent political thriller produced by Netflix this year, but considering it's the first Emmy nomination for a show that was never actually on TV, it's a noteworthy, if not entirely unexpected, achievement. That it's one of a dozen Emmy nominations for original content on the streaming service says a good deal more.Read More
And So It BeginsJust a couple months after the premier, and subsequent binge watching, of Arrested Development Season 4, Brian Grazer and Netflix are already in talks for another season of the comedy. At the Allen & Co. Conference in Sun Valley , Idaho, Grazer, who produces the show with Imagine TV, revealed that Netflix was eager to repeat the success they had with the fourth season, saying,

I don't know what I expected.
The Arrested Development team is nothing if not fanatically attentive to even the smallest detail of their work. Case in point? YouTube user Steven Paananen decided to put George Michael's sense of timing to the test and... well, timed it. I can't even tell you what the result is because it feels blasphemous to speak it aloud -- you just have to watch the video. It's just too magical and amazing for mere words. Bless you, Arrested Development. Bless you.Read More
In a lot of ways, Netflix is changing television.
The concept of watching a bunch of episodes of a TV show at once is either called 'binge-watching' or 'marathoning' the show. Those terms describe two ways of looking at something that's becoming increasingly common thanks to DVDs, DVRs, and online streaming. Is it a binge? An ugly, messy, yet addictive experience in consumption? Or is it a marathon? A long, arduous undertaking that you're proud of afterward? Netflix arguably shifted things further towards marathoning with the release of Arrested Development.Read More
Bluthfighter Parody Video Makes Living Without an Arrested Development Fighting Game Seem Pointless [Video]
Seriously, how is this not a thing I am playing literally right this second? What kind of God would allow a thing like that to happen?
A few weeks ago, we brought you the trailer for LEGO Breaking Bad, a brilliant concept for a video game that will probably never see the light of day. Now, the animator behind that piece of awesome is back with another mashup we just can't resist -- a Street Fighter-style fighting game featuring the characters from Arrested Development. Brian Anderson's proof of concept features a battle to the death between Gob and Tobias, with guest tag-ins from the likes of Tony Wonder and Carl Weathers. It is, in other words, everything we never knew we wanted in a video game and then some.Read More
