Even though fans were pretty split on the 2013 return of Arrested Development, the series apparently will be given another chance to redeem its good name. Executive Producer Brian Glazer appeared on the Adam Carolla podcast June 2 and confirmed that Netflix wants more of the Bluths:

"Well, I had a conversation with Fox today, this morning. Netflix is determined to do more episodes, so we're gonna do more episodes. We're going to do it [at] the turn of the year. January, February we're gonna start it. […] Mitch Hurwitz, who I just called while I was sitting out there in your beautiful waiting room. […] I made the call to Mitch to say everybody's into it."



He said the plan is to turn the episodes around and have them on your television or Netflix watchin' device by mid-2016.

No word yet if everyone will return or maybe everyone can be in the same scene for more than two minutes of the season. Here's hoping they turn out a return to form for one of the greatest television comedies of all time.

What do you think? Excited? Meh?

Just about everyone was excited for the return of Game of Thrones last weekend, but HBO has a hard time relaxing in its success of the mega-hit show.

When the Twitter-developed, live streaming Periscope app released March 26 it may have seemed to most of us like a way to show off your smoking. A few enterprising individuals thought it might serve a better purpose showing off the return to Westeros.

Well, the BBC reported this week that HBO sent out many 'take down' notices to those viewers who wanted to share their experience. The premium cable giant also woefully shook their heavy head (bedecked with jeweled pity crows, no doubt) over the lack of control they had of their content on Periscope.

"In general, we feel developers should have tools which proactively prevent mass copyright infringement from occurring on their apps and not be solely reliant upon notifications," HBO said in a statement.


This came only a few days after the first four episodes of the upcoming season leaked online.

But even with these gaps in their distribution, HBO is far, far from a sinking ship. This is more akin to someone drinking a dribble glass on a cruise ship.

HBO is offering a free 30-day trial through iTunes, after which each month of the streaming service will cost $14.99, but free you from the guilt of borrowing someone else's HBO Go password.

The service has arrived just in time for the premiere of season 5 of Game of Thrones.  Hopefully it fares better than HBO Go did for a lot of last season:
