Ron Howard is getting a crack at the Star Wars franchise due to taking over the Han Solo movie from original Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, but something seems tonally strange about his vision of the Star Wars franchise ...Read More
Mitch Hurwitz says he's already been at work on a new season.
Hurwitz said he's also been working with a team of writers on the stories to be told in a prospective fifth season, adding, "It's the thing I'm really desperate to do. We've got a lot of the stories broke and we're ready to go."Read More
We caught up with the Alia Shawkat at SXSW, where she had two projects to share with audiences: the pilot episode of Search Party (which just got picked up to series) and Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, the delightful Netflix original film. Shawkat talked about her new projects, returning to TV, and making a childhood dream come true.Read More

Season Two of Orange is the New Black Is Live! Here’s an Arrested Development Mashup to Watch In Between Episodes [VIDEO]
Five by Five
Season two of Orange Is the New Black—or, as it it's frequently mistakenly called around these parts, Orange is the New Orphan Black—is live on Netflix as of midnight, and the recaps are already rolling in. If you're stuck at work and can only sneak-watch short vids, not entire episodes, Netflix cooked up this Arrested Development credits mashup to whet your appetite. OiNtB watchers, chime in: How many episodes have you watched in the 13 hours it's been out? Anybody done? (Hey, it's physically possible.)

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." Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?Read More

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 Begins
We are in conversations with them to do another. They are interested in doing that.Read More
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
The fact that we live in a world without a real Bob Loblaw Law Blog is upsetting.
Longtime readers of Geekosystem will know that we sure do love the online technology that gets made up for TV shows and movies -- the more generic and hokey, the better. Nobody puts together a fictitious website frontpage like Arrested Development, though (although I have to admit that I really enjoyed many of the Heroes first season ARG sites at the time), and the latest season definitely did not disappoint in that regard. Luckily, Slacktory's saved you the trouble of "Something" searching for all those references yourself with a supercut of all the important ones. I'm surprised that so many of those domains are still up for grabs. Why hasn't anybody snatched up BarryGood.Biz yet?Read More
i'll just leave this here
There are shows we'd like to see come back too, but it's usually a terrible idea. Let's look at shows that should stay canceled.
Since Arrested Development came back this weekend, a lot of people have been talking about other shows that Netflix should revive. There was even the #ShowsThatNeedToComeBack hashtag on Twitter. The only show that should be revived is The Cosby Show, so let's end this pointless debate and instead let's focus on shows that need to stay good and dead.Read More
If you've been hankering to hear someone rap a synopsis of the entire fourth season, this is for you.
If you've been on the Internet lately, it's more than probable that you haven't been able to escape the wild emotions of everyone that's been waiting for, and binge-watching, Arrested Development. If you're not keen on signing up for 15 episodes of hilarity -- my mind struggles to understand this viewpoint, but I digress -- but you'd like to know what all the fuss is about, we've got an exclusive "rap up" track from Adam WarRock that gives you the skinny on the new season.Read More
