“Arrested Development”: Changing Viewing?

“Because you probably saw it on DVD first,” says the Guardian, “there’s a weird kind of sense to ‘Arrested Development’ announcing its plans to release an entire series of 10 episodes via Neflix on the same day, as it did this week. Fans of the show are used to greedily slurping it up as a boxset, so this is simply a reflection of their viewing patterns. Is this actually how anybody wants their TV to be delivered?” Obviously, there are millions of people who like to consume a season in one gulp: I’ve watched many HBO shows (“The Wire,” “True Blood”) this way. As for “Arrested Development,” it’s never tickled my funny bone, so I won’t have to decide in what timeframe I’ll watch it. I won’t.
