It's almost here!! The return of Arrested Development is right around the corner and I could not be more excited. I've been praying to the Netflix gods for months to ensure that the streaming works properly as soon as the series is live on Sunday May 26th at 12 a.m. PT.

Matthew Perry would fit right in with this crew. Maybe as a rival magician to Gob a la Ben Stiller?
