Fake Movies & Shows From 'Arrested Development' Get Added To Netflix

The Playlist By Joe Cunningham | The Playlist December 21, 2012 at 12:44PM

As if we weren’t already excited enough about the revival of “Arrested Development,” Netflix has gone and made sure we’ll remember just how excited we are on a regular basis while browsing the site. The cult sitcom, which aired on Fox between 2003 and 2006, was always great at peppering the show with gags so there were always plenty of in-jokes for fans to love. Well, full credit to Netflix for exploiting those and peppering them across the site.

As if we weren’t already excited enough about the revival of “Arrested Development,” Netflix has gone and made sure we’ll remember just how excited we are on a regular basis while browsing the site. The cult sitcom, which aired on Fox between 2003 and 2006, was always great at peppering the show with gags so there were always plenty of in-jokes for fans to love. Well, full credit to Netflix for exploiting those and peppering them across the site.

On Wednesday they added a bunch of fake shows and movies to their streaming catalog, all of which were featured in the first three seasons of the show. Titles like “Girls with Low Self Esteem: Newport Beach” which guest star Zach Braff presented on the show, George Micheal’s favorite piece of European cinema “Les Cousins Dangereux,” and the Judge Reinhold-starring courtroom series “Mock Trial With J. Reinhold” are now all up as links on the site, although sadly they all link back to the "Arrested Development" page.

Sure it would have been great to be able to watch titles like “Boyfights,” “Caged Wisdon: Musings From Prison,” “Families With Low Self Esteem,” “Wrench,” “Scandalmakers,” “Ready, Aim … Marry Me!,” and “World’s Worst Drivers” for real, but we’re happy enough with reminders like this about just how great the series was. So great job, Netflix, way to do viral marketing the right way! Check out the synopses and artwork below. [Splitsider via /Film]

Girls with Low Self Esteem: Newport Beach
Sunshine and self-esteem issues collide as drunken, scantily-clad co-eds with low self-worth and absolutely no shame hit Spring Break in Southern California. It's a wild, weekend adventure that you'll never forget … but they'll wish they could.

Families with Low Self Esteem
Tobias Funke, the semi-renowned Freudian analyst/therapist and former chief resident of psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital, provides counseling to families deep in crisis in this deeply probing and emotionally uplifting series.

Wrench
When faced with some of the toughest cases the mean streets of Los Angeles has to offer, by-the-books detective Frank Wrench realizes he needs to loosen up, break some rules and maybe even throw out the book entirely, in order to get tough on crime.

Les Cousins Dangereux
To escape the scorn of their dissaproving families, two cousins flee to a sleepy, provincial town in France but are forced to hide their incestuous affair from the prying eyes of local villagers in this awkward tale of forbidden romance.

Scandalmakers
No stone goes unturned and privacy means nothing in this reality series where sordid secrets and ugly truths come to light. Go behind the scenes of today's tabloid headlines with re-enactments of real-life incriminating scandals.

Ready, Aim… Marry Me!
After an acrimonious parting of ways with fellow Nazi hunter, Red McGibbon, Bullet shows he's nobody's sidekick by flying solo in search of comedic adventures. But along the way he discovers romance in the arms of a sassy socialite.

Mock Trial with J. Reinhold
All rise for actor Judge Reinhold as he presides over this reality courtroom/variety series, featuring music by American Idol sensation William Hung and his band, Hung Jury, as they take real families and put them through mock trials.

Caged Wisdom: Musings from Prison
Based on his book, "Musings From Prison," George Bluth presents the latest collection from his ongoing series of life lessons and motivational discourses on the Jewish faith, all while incarcerated at the Orange County Prison.

Boyfights
Sibling rivalry is taken to the extreme as brothers battle it out in this compilation of adolescent boyfights featuring "A Day in the Life of American Boys," A Boyfights Cookout," "Backseat Boyfights" and "I Don't Want to Go to Bed."

World's Worst Drivers
Classic crashes, funny fender-benders and stupid sideswipes are on all display in this series that tracks down the world's most terrible drivers on (and off) the road. There is nowhere to hide from these highway horrors.
