"I know what the stories are and what Mitch [Hurwitz] is doing, and it’s so layered. It’s really audacious and amazing. I think a lot of people will miss the work that is involved, the story, the Venn diagrams that are being created, the domino effect that characters have with each other in their various episodes. I know what he’s doing, and this has never been done on a TV show like this. This makes Lost look like a Spaulding Grey monologue. You’ll have to watch each episode more than once."
— David Cross, talking up new episodes of Arrested Development. There’s no way this could possibly live up to the fan-hype. Is there?
