I will start watching it tonight. If the show doesn't get picked up after this, or if the movie never happens, there is always money in the banana stand.

It will absolutely be released on DVD in the next 3-6 months, Netflix would be stupid not to (as ShatteredFlame already mentioned, House of Cards is coming out in a couple weeks.) Even more $$$ for them plus the subscriptions they got from the Arrested Devlopment fanboys, it's a genius business plan.

Yeah, but how many of those fanboys are going to cancel their subscription once they see all the new episodes? My guess is a shit ton. It's a good short term business plan, they will make some good money off it at the start but probably not much in the long run. I'm shocked that Netflix isn't hurting business wise since just about everything they have is already available for free somewhere on the internet.

I will get around to watching the new Arrested Development episodes over the next week. I have no doubt they will be good. It's great to see that the show is back.

When you sign up for the Netflix trial you give them your card info and you get a free 30 days but if you don't cancel after the 30 day mark they start to charge you. What they're banking on is that the people who signed up for the trial just to watch the new season of AD will stick around and continue to use Netflix.

Huge risk is you ask me. There will be a lot of people who sign up just to see this and then will cancel before the 30 days are over. They probably won't make as much on new subscribers as they think because of this. The 30 free trial screws them out of a lot of potential money.

I've watched the first five episodes and so far it's great. The show has a slightly different feel to it but also feels the same, if that makes any sense at all.

So far have seen the first episode and thought it was meh. The show seems awkward now, but I shall see after I watch more episodes!

10 episodes in. There are so many intersecting stories and set-ups that it's getting a little too complicated for it's own good, but I'm sure they can pull it off. It's kind of AD's thing, after all.
