Critic Reviews for A New Attitude

This Gob-centered episode takes places almost entirely outside the established, already loopy story lines of Season 4... Gob is - as usual - operating at the fringe.

The old Arrested Development magic appears to be returning now that this experimental fourth season is finished explaining itself over and over, episode after episode.

The new show is a harder, darker, crueler animal.

May 16, 2018 | Rating: 4.7/5 | Full Review…

Despite being among the longest of the Season 4 episodes, "A New Attitude" is one of the only new episodes that doesn't feel overlong or have any notable pacing issues.

May 16, 2018 | Rating: 9.5/10 | Full Review…

This is perhaps the best example of a plot that could have worked out if spread out over multiple episodes, but doesn't when crammed into one Little Ballroom.

The best characters are really coming into their own at last, and the criss-crossing of timelines and explanations of earlier scenes are becoming more fun and satisfying.

"A New Attitude" is funny just as a piece of juvenilia.

I think the true power of "A New Attitude" comes from the way GOB kicks at his Bluthian instincts and accepts Tony Wonder not as a competitor, but as a friend.

Quick note of appreciation for Mae Whitman here, who plays a vengeful Ann almost as well as she cries.
