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. [Earlier that day] I don’t care for Loki.”
Etsy seller Alicia Watkins creates simple, charming cross stitches of your favorite geeky quotes and pop culture moments.

Just 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,
We are in conversations with them to do another. They are interested in doing that.
Now that we’ve put 7 years of Arrested Development season 4 speculation behind us, we can start looking for signs of a season 5. Wired reports that Netflix is looking to continue it’s recent trend of original programming, and part of that initiative could be more Arrested Development.

In advance of its premiere this Sunday, Netflix has released four micro-clips of Arrested Development‘s fourth season. One of them is covered in bees. That one’s above; check out the other three behind the cut.
(Yeah, I just worked an Eddie Izzard reference into an Arrested Development post. What’re you gonna do?)

I think people do want a great experience and they want access – people are mostly honest. The best way to combat piracy isn’t legislatively or criminally but by giving good options.

But what’s more interesting to me, in the same interview, is what he says about bringing back old television shows with cult followings, specifically for Netflix, and why we shouldn’t expect new episodes of Twin Peaks, Firefly, or Buffy to show up anytime soon.
When I heard the description of what this video would be, it sounded cool. “Thought you might be interested in a project I made for my husband for his birthday, a collection of re-created television show intros based on his life, friends, and interests,” Leigh Lahav wrote to us. And then I actually watched. I’m now giving Leigh a standing ovation and I hope her husband Oren gave her a big kiss. Watch as Leigh injects herself, her husband, and his entire life into the television openings of Adventure Time, The Office, and tons more.
