The season, while much improved, still doesn't work. It does start off strong, however.

Decider

It's a good effort, but in trying to patch up a disjointed season of television, Fateful Consequences only makes Season 4's faults more obvious - while eliminating some of its best jokes.

A weird, uncharacteristic misappraisal of how it worked...

Re-editing and ordering these plots can't change the fact that they were a bit boring and tedious to begin with.

It feels deflating, somehow, like an attempt to explain away the whole fascinating, failed ambition of season 4 as one long stall toward the next reboot.

It's really hard to go back to something that's been gone a long time and make it feel fresh and original. Arrested Development season four doesn't pull it off, in any iteration.

Flaws and all, the remix is just more fun than the original.
