The new season is a success, but this is a banana stand that needs some new flavors fast.

Arrested was always a zany version of reality, but the cartoonishness feels hyperbolic now, unfocused.

Mostly funny. At moments scintillating... mostly a story about having watched "Arrested Development."

The more you know about what's happened with Tambor over the past 12 months and the cast's attempt to reframe it, the emptier the comedy's absurdist spectacle becomes.

The series' interest in intergenerational idiocy and corruption couldn't be more timely.

Just as whip-smart and insane as it used to be. Get ready for callbacks, incest storylines, and for Lucille...and Maeby...to steal the show.

Arrested Development just needs to get over the stories it's already told, and move on to the ones it's telling this time around.

Season five starts much more promisingly, with an energy that comes from reuniting most of the cast in a single episode again.

Flat and lifeless and pointless.

Arrested Development ending, or approaching the finish line, is the best thing for all involved.
