    Arrested Development was an amazing show. Not excited?

    If you’re like me and find yourself in the thick of movie coverage, you’re sick and tired of the feeding frenzy for every non-news morsel. My feelings on the show are beside the point.

    “Arrested Development” was a terrific show, but I honestly can’t see the point of a film.

    I felt that “Arrested Development” ended a little prematurely with several characters and plot strands not being resolved completely, if not satisfyingly enough. That seems to be the sentiment among many fans, as well as the general feeling that the show should at least have completed its three seasons in full (and the creators thought that too, with little snarks inserted into the show itself). So the excitement for potential movie is in my opinion understandable and quite justified.
