Critic Reviews for Arrested Development Season 4 Remix: Fateful Consequences

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

Mitch Hurwitz tore apart a great season of television simply because viewers didn't like it. Now we're stuck with a misshapen garbage heap of comedy remnants. I hope they learned their lesson.

Flaws and all, the remix is just more fun than the original.

Fateful Consequences smooths out a lot of season 4's rough edges, but it can't reclaim the show's legacy.

Not only is the George Lucasian choice to bury the original fourth season in the bowels of Netflix a weird, uncharacteristic slap in the face to those who went to bat for it, but it's also a weird, uncharacteristic misappraisal of how it worked...

May 23, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a good effort, but in trying to patch up a disjointed season of television, Fateful Consequences only makes Season 4's faults more obvious - while eliminating some of its best jokes.

May 23, 2018 | Full Review…

The very existence of this new edit, not to mention that Netflix has craftily hidden the original cut behind some non-user-friendly UI, is a tacit admission that the original cut completely blue itself.

May 7, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

It's really hard to go back to something that's been gone a long time and make it feel fresh and original. Arrested Development season four doesn't pull it off, in any iteration.

May 14, 2018 | Full Review…

It feels deflating, somehow, like an attempt to explain away the whole fascinating, failed ambition of season 4 as one long stall toward the next reboot.

May 11, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Re-editing and ordering these plots can't change the fact that they were a bit boring and tedious to begin with.

We're certainly presented with fewer problems and issues in the remix of Arrested Development's Season 4 - or in the very least we're exposed to them in shorter bursts - but overall it still lands as the weakest season of the series.

Audience Reviews for Arrested Development: Season 4 Remix: Fateful Consequences

  • Apr 06, 2019
    It's hard to believe that this much talent produced a show this bad
  • Apr 01, 2019
    The 4th season is as funny as cinco de cuatro is spanish! When over half of a given episode is the narrator just expositing, there's your hint that you got a stinker on your hands!
  • Feb 28, 2019
    Season 4 took a major nosedive.... was hilarious up to that point
  • Feb 27, 2019
    It's alright, but because the story was written for the "other format" there are some flaws ad also some really bad voice-overs (from tobias) to fix the - now sometimes broken story that came out of this Remix. Still mostly great jokes and fun to watch though.

    Unfortunate. In doing this "remix" Mitchell Hurwitz has messed with the hilarious interactions that were possible between characters in previous seasons. It's sad to see such a funny show become almost boring to watch.

    This show makes me laugh like no other!!
  • Oct 15, 2018
    I actually really loved this season all the way up to the final episode which was poorly executed and with a terrible ending
  • May 30, 2018
    Although my initial feelings were "This is kind of on the nose" it manages to restore what felt missing from the infamous 4th season.If you were a fan of the show including or discluding the 4th, you should like this. And if you did like and watch the 4th season and have most of it in your head, this new edit will feel like a dream. And for fans of the 4th season, they've added more. It's nice they listened to the audience about the structure and pretty ballsy to re-edit the old ones, but the show's still meta as ever and you can hear the irratation in the Narrator's voice.

    El nuevo montaje mejoró en demasía la ultima temporada, lastima que no se lanzó con este corte y eso la haga un poco inutil
  • May 07, 2018
    Definatley a better version than the original was, but the biggest thing going against it is that the original seasons of the show were so brilliant, while the story of this season is just alright. Hopefully season 5 will be better in capturing the original SPIRIT of the show.
