So, Mumford & Sons is still a thing, particularly if you're into boot-stomping, arena anthems that all sound the same. And now, it seems the band has graduated to the level where they can round up a bunch of celebs to appear in their videos, but kudos to them for nailing this star-filled concept pretty much dead on.

Arrested Development, Netflix series
Binging is the new black. And thus the desire to not only gorge, but to insta-weigh-in on the new Netflix season of “Arrested Development,” which premiered over the Memorial Weekend, is in full effect. The cult of ‘AD’ has grown to a deafening roar over the years, the anticipation and expectations at the prospect of the show’s triumphant return were at an all time high going into the weekend. “Arrested Development” was neglected and then canceled in 2006 by 20th Century Fox and somehow defied the odds to return seven years later with a new lease on life thanks to Netflix and their own expanding desire for (semi) original programming. But if you’re disappointed with this new season, it may be easy to understand why. Sometimes you have to be careful what you wish for.

The 5 Best Episodes Of 'Arrested Development' From The First 3 Seasons

"Arrested Development," as the opening credits inform us, is the story "of one wealthy family, who lost everything and the son who had no choice but to keep them all together." This synopsis, about the Bluth family and their continued struggles, makes it sound like something out of the Chuck Lorre factory of middlebrow mediocrity. But "Arrested Development," created by cracked genius Mitchell Hurwitz, would go on to become one of the most beloved (and short-lived) comedy series in the history of television, one whose fan-base was so outspoken that this weekend the series will be resurrected with a collection of episodes airing exclusively on Netflix's streaming service. The unthinkable has happened: The Bluths are back from the dead.

It's hard to believe that in just a few weeks, after years of hopes, rumors, speculation and wishful thinking, a brand new season of "Arrested Development" will be here. And it won't be parceled out with an episode each week -- instead, Netflix is going to drop all 15 in one go, prompting marathon viewing across the nation, and challenging servers from coast to coast.

Seven years in the making, and honestly not something many realistic pragmatists like us thought would ever come to pass, “Arrested Development” is returning in May on Netflix with all the 15 episodes at once, so you can binge through them all in one sitting, as is the norm for big TV digestion these days. No, it’s not quite a fourth season, or at least says Jason Bateman, but it’s the continuation of the Bluth’s story some 10 years later. Entertainment Weekly’s cover story last week has an awesome breakdown of the “Arrested Development” return and how unflappable series creator Mitch Hurwitz willed it into existence with unwavering tenacity.

“It’s the story of shame, cunning, thievery, dishonor, backstabbing, deceit, bold-faced lying, one-upmanship, psychological torture, lust, financial ruin, and magic, all supported by a very broad beam of dysfunctional love,” Will Arnett says about the upcoming season or batch of episodes or whatever-you-want-to-call-it of "Arrested Development." And that's just fine by us.

Many writers say they prefer not to start the writing process with a theme in mind – they simply let it emerge organically from their plot or characters. But then, plenty of films have gone the other way. The multi-strand, interconnected drama revolving around a particular subject or theme, like Steven Soderbergh’s take on the war on drugs in “Traffic,” or Paul Thomas Anderson’s examination of coincidence and happenstance in “Magnolia,” have proved particularly popular in recent years. And given that they garlanded financial and critical success, it makes sense that others have set out to follow in their footsteps.

Bananas and ice cream sandwiches -- if you're a fan of "Arrested Development" you already know what those things mean to show, and if you don't, you should be catching up on all three seasons right now before the batch of new episodes hit Netflix next month. All this to say, there are three new posters for the upcoming not-really-a-season, and with both Jason Bateman and David Cross currently on the interview rounds for their respective indies ("Disconnect" and "It's A Disaster"), the inevitable question about the potential movie keeps rearing its head.

It's almost hard to believe that the return of “Arrested Development,” while only a month away from its May Netflix premiere, is really happening -- perhaps partly because the event's been so anticipated, and partly because so little has been revealed on its contents. Drips of info have been leaked here and there though, and with a round of cast panels and interviews over the weekend, that info has just increased.
