    I'll be home around 5 tomorrow, and need to be in bed around 11. I hope that's enough time to watch it all.

    Even though it probably won't be up until like 12:30, I have waited for things to be up on Netflix before.

    Well it's good so far but definitely not as good as before.

    Well the first episode was ok, some of the jokes just fell flat and for a large portion of the episode Michael was just really dumb which isn't in his character.
    I'm gonna watch the second one in a second and see it's any better.

    Second episode was better, I have noticed there seems to be less comedy.
    Well I'll watch episode 3 in a few hours as I need sleep now.

    Well, I watched the first two episodes. It's enjoyable, but a little underwhelming so far. The new format really takes the wind out it, and some of the scenes really drag-on without being particularly funny (the whole dorm room vote-off thing). The humor doesn't quite feel the same, like it's a mixture between a lack of jokes and some of the jokes trying too hard. But like I said, it's still pretty enjoyable and it's great to be with these characters again. I kinda expected things to be a little different, so I'm not really let down that much, and I do hold out hope things will get better the further into the season it gets, and the story develops.

    First ep was ok but Michael did disappoint me in his actions slightly. Maeby's hair was freaking me out when she showed up. I think Wiig and Rogen make decent young Lucille and George, but Lucille is better.

    Second ep was much better, always love the George/Oscar dynamic. Enjoyed Lucille showing just how she truly is the brains behind most company stuff. GOB's reaction to "don't pull out" cracked me up.

    On third ep now. Excited since its Lindsey.

    Ok that Thanksgiving miracle joke was hilarious.

    I just woke up and gave in, watched the first ep.

    It's... okay. I was smiling the entire time but goddamn that pacing. The FOX version was so perfectly condensed and now it feels like Hurwitz is taking his time and that's just not Arrested Development.

    The voting scene was hysterical though. As well as  the Workaholics cameos. 

    Hope it gets better as we go along.

    Yeah it's not really bringing the LOLs so far, but I'm only on the 2nd episode. It feels a little drawn out and I'm still not convinced the one-character focus is really successful. Hopefully it improves - maybe like the first season it needs time to develop.

    Did the first season really need time to develop though? I always found it to be sharp, witty, fast-paced, and highly entertaining from the first episode on. It obviously got better, but compared to some shows AD came out of the gate with it's A material. These new episodes have us accepting a new format, which is fine and all, but it's not why people loved the show. For a 30 minute episode about Lindsdays wacky adventures to really work, the writing better be damn good. I don't really think they pulled that off.

    Seen the first 4 episodes kinda feels like a different show in a way it's longer and more drawn out. But the 4th episode so far has been the best.

    Yeah the fourth episode was pretty good, and it elicited a handful of major laughs. Definitely the closest thus far in terms of classic AD.

    I'm up to the third episode which was probably the weakest one so far. Glad to hear the fourth is an improvement. I'm gonna stop for now and watch in instalments as others have said.

    As an aside, it was really jarring seeing Portia de Rossi in footage of the old show, followed by new scenes which are supposed to be set a few hours later. Jesus it's depressing what some women do to themselves.

    Starting with the 4th episode, the story starts to come into focus and it gets pretty good. Also, the Tobias episode intersects a lot with Lindsays episode and adds a little bit to it. But I agree, Portia does not look good at all, which is a shame because she was a very pretty woman. I'm sure if she just aged naturally shed look way better, cause most of the other cast looks about the same.
