Critic reviews for Colony Collapse

Gob has the biggest gap between his selfishness and his haplessness... He doesn't think it's his character flaws that doom him, but his choices: He's not stupid, he's just made a huge mistake. "Colony Collapse" is, of course, a series of them.

I must confess, I'm conflicted by the new format... However, at this point in the season, the separate character threads are beginning to knit together, and already I'm hungry to rewatch and spot the jokes and references that didn't land the first time.

A terrific Arrested Development installment that put Gob back into the spotlight in a very crowd-pleasing manner.

Arnett is just brilliant in this, both hilarious and pathetic, and even though it is just as plot-heavy as any of the other episodes, it feels as if the show is settling down a little.

As for whether "Colony Collapse" lives up to the hype, I'd say it definitely does.

All these new episodes have something of a stand-alone feel, but this especially plays out like a Gob mini-movie. It drags a bit and it's a shame Gob doesn't get to interact much with the Bluths, but Gob is Gob, and Gob is good.
