Hello friends, I hope you all had a nice Friday!
So who all has watched the much anticipated 4th season of Arrested Development? I still have 3 episodes to go before finishing it, but I like what I've seen so far. I think Maeby's episode was my favorite one so far. I loved her acceptance speech at the Opie's awards show, and I thought she was generally a funnier character than she's been previously. Lucille's episode was also fantastic, of course. She's still my favorite character, and anything she says or does never fails to crack me up! And Gob's episodes were great as well!
I think the only character I'm kind of disappointed in this season is Tobias. The Fantastic 4 storyline and his new love interest just aren't really doing it for me. He does have his moments, though, so it's not all bad. I still haven't seen Buster's or George Michael's episodes, and I have high hopes for both of them!
And I think it goes without saying that my favorite thing about the new season of Arrested Development is a certain long-necked, feathery individual.
Cindy the Ostrich! Side-note: the ostrich-like sound Lucille 2 makes at one point was possibly my favorite moment of season 4.
