If you haven't yet watched the new episodes of "Arrested Development," steer clear of this article! But if you have tuned in to Season 4, chances are you might have some questions about some of the jokes. (Don't worry, it happens to the best of us.) We've gathered the most Something-Searched "Arrested Development" questions from the first day of streaming and found some answers for you.
1. Was that really Justin Grant Wade, who played Steve Holt in the first three seasons? When Gob's son, Steve Holt, reappeared in Season 4, he was barely recognizable -- as Michael so gently put it, he looked fifty years old. In real life, Wade still looks his age (he's 29!). He just wore a bald cap with a wig to make it look like his hairline had drastically receded for Season 4.
2. Was that watermark an error? Whenever the new season integrated a clip from Seasons 1-3, which was often, »
At just 14 years of age, Alia Shawkat found herself starring alongside comedic all-stars such as Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, and David Cross in the Fox comedy series Arrested Development as Maeby Funke. 10 years and numerous film and TV credits later, the actress and the rest of this talented Arrested Development cast is back with 15 brand new Season 4 episodes, debuting simultaneously Sunday, May 26 on Netflix. After attending the press conference a few weeks back, I was fortunate enough to sit down with Alia Shawkat one-on-one to discuss this comedy's return. Here's what she had to say.
Since each episode this season centers on a particular character, I was curious how many episodes you show up in, aside from your Maeby-centric episode?

Welcome to "Arrested Development" Rewatch. Leading up to the release of Season 4, Zap2it will be taking a look back at the 53 episodes that made "Ad" one of our most beloved TV comedies. Watch the first three seasons of "Arrested Development" on Netflix. Today we're covering the third episode of Season 2, "The Immaculate Election," which premiered March 20, 2005.
"Arrested Development" Season 2 continues down its strange, hilarious path in "The Immaculate Election." From George Michael's cringe-worthy "Star Wars" tapes to the introduction of Mrs. Featherbottom -- she's as gorgeous as she sounds -- this episode really digs into some of the weirdest aspects of the Bluths, and it's a fan-favorite because of that.
Plot: Ann tries to get George Michael to run for student body president, which Michael fully supports -- until he realizes his son isn't as popular as Ann claims he is. Then he and Gob do their best »

Welcome to the "Arrested Development" Rewatch. Leading up to the release of Season 4, Zap2it will be taking a look back at the 53 episodes that made the show one of our most beloved TV comedies.Watch the first three seasons of "Arrested Development" on Netflix. We continue with episode 3 of Season 1, "Bringing Up Buster," which first aired Nov. 16, 2003.
"Bringing Up Buster" establishes or deepens a couple of long-running "Arrested Development" themes, in particular Lucille and Buster's unnaturally close relationship. Their dynamic was one of the most reliably hilarious (and creepy) comedic wells the show could turn to throughout its run, and the roots of all of that are here. It's also a great showcase for the Bluth siblings, who have a rare moment of common ground in talking about Lucille.
