Watching the New Arrested Development Episodes in Whatever Order Won’t Work After All

New Michael Bluth.

In the many months we’ve been hearing about this grand Arrested Development experiment, one thing that’s popped up is the notion that these single-character-centric episodes (fifteen in all! Fifteen!) would be great to experience either sequentially or, in a big delivery twist, all out of order. Meaning yes, you could treat yourself and watch G.O.B.’s episodes first thing at 12:01 a.m. on May 26. Now creator Mitch Hurwitz has a couple quick updates.

The good news: “Done! Just finished the final mix last night. In two weeks Arrested Development will be yours to do with as you please.” The other, not-exactly-bad-and-definitely-useful-as-a-PSA news: “Except for 1 thing! You gotta watch them in order. Turns out I was not successful in creating a form where the setup follows the punch line.” YOU’VE MADE A HUGE MISTAKE, HURWITZ. Just kidding, brother — it’s a new season of Arrested Development! It’s fine! Good to know, though.
