PEOPLE's TV Critic's Arrested Development Review: It's Just Not as Funny

Arrested Development, one of the cleverest sitcoms of all time, returned to life over the weekend, as Netflix launched an entire season of 15 new episodes for instant and, if one so chooses, marathon streaming.

This is a cause for celebration: reviving a cult network classic as digital, 24/7 programming is something like cloning a fresh mastodon from genetic material tweezered off a frozen carcass.

There is no guarantee, however, that the genetic material may not have mutated or deteriorated with time.

That is the case with Arrested Development, which lasted a mere three seasons on Fox despite ecstatic praise and is now regarded as such a classic that this revival has been wildly anticipated (and hyped).

Let's all hope Netflix has some seriously powerful servers, because everybody and their mother(boy) just signed up to watch the hotly anticipated fourth season of Arrested Development, available exclusively on the streaming service beginning May 26.

That's right – the Bluths are back, in all their lazy, grifting, unprincipled glory! Do you think you're the ultimate Arrested Development fan?

Whether you plan on watching the whole new season in one sitting, or will ration out the episodes, grab your martini, stock up on treats from the nearest banana stand, snuggle up in the model home with anyone but Ann and sound off below.

CBS Bets on Will Arnett, Anna Faris and Toni Collette

CBS Upfronts: Will Arnett Shares the Laughs, Anna Faris (Finally) Arrives

CBS is the warrior king of networks, and its upfront typically feels like the ritual unfurling of an illustrated tapestry of conquests.

This year's event included the cast of How I Met Your Mother, now heading into its final season, singing a parody of Les Misérables beneath yellow umbrellas on the Carnegie Hall stage.

David Letterman, who is now the official anti-Jimmy of late night, made a brief (and rare) appearance, and Robin Williams, a high-profile addition to the lineup with a new sitcom called The Crazy Ones, gave the crowd a few moments of fast-riffing standup. He mentioned prostitutes, cocaine, FOX News and the notoriously bizarre variety show Pink Lady and Jeff.

Here are three shows that struck me as keepers, at least for as long as the audience will have them.

SNL Star Gets Psyched for Michael Phelps

Saturday Night Live castmember Kristen Wiig is counting the minutes until the NBC show returns this weekend. One big reason? The season's first host.

"I'm excited to meet Michael Phelps!" she told PEOPLE at a bash celebrating her film Ghost Town at the Toronto Film Festival. "He's gonna be naked in all the sketches I write, for sure."

But the 23-year-old Phelps, who won an astonishing eight gold medals at the 2008 Summer Olympics, will still have plenty of costume changes.

"There are some people that you can just picture with a wig on and it's funny," she said at the event sponsored by Hollywood Life magazine. "He's one of those people."
