Critic reviews for A New Start
This episode was refreshingly whimsical and untethered in comparison to the freighted story lines we've seen so far.
"A New Start" feels like an appropriate name for an episode that seemed to give Arrested Development the kick in the butt it needed to really come to life.
And, after two hours of set-ups, we finally get to the aptly titled "A New Start," the first truly brilliant chapter of the new batch.
Much like George Sr., Tobias Fünke is a character who works better in small doses, and so the character-specific episodes of season four don't really work with him front and center.
"A New Start" sports a wealth of top-notch Tobias slapstick and double-entendres.
