Arrested Development
original content arrested development
Available on: Netflix

The show: Filmed with handheld cameras documentary-style, the six-time Emmy award-winning cult hit trails the antics of Michael Bluth and his comically dysfunctional family after his father is imprisoned for fraud.

The cast and crew: Jason Bateman as Michael Bluth, Michael Cera as his quirky son in a role that catapulted him to stardom, and Portia de Rossi portraying Michael's shallow sister Lindsay.

The status: Ran for three seasons on Fox before getting canned. Rumors of a movie circulated for years before it was announced Netflix would exclusively air 10 new episodes next spring. Co-star David Cross told Rolling Stone that the episode order might be bumped to 13.

What they're saying: "The writing reminds me of (and this is a high, if random, compliment) Police Squad!, that short-lived TV precursor to the Naked Gun movies, which was packed with raunchy, goofy wordplay. ... Smart, unruly, and very fast, Arrested is the ultimate TV series for our TiVo age." -- Gillian Flynn, Entertainment Weekly
