    I SOOOOOOOOOOOO want to see this. I am a huge fan of Arrested Development AND of Jeffrey Tamber and Judith Light.
    Being something of a Ludditte, I am having trouble figuring out how to stream it. The critics are all exultant over this new series. I can’t wait to see it.

    With Judith Light and Jeffrey Tambor on board, it should be terrific. Both are truly gifted actors.

    I finally was able to see the first three episodes. It does not disappoint. Jeffrey Tamber is the quintessential sad clown and Gabby Hoffman is both hilarious and very sad as his youngest daughter, who is brilliant but unable to find her place in this world.
    Judith Light is morphing into the next Helen Merren playing his world-weary, slightly eccentric ex wife.
    Did I laugh? Yes. But I cried a little too watching this dysfunctional family lead their quiet lives of desperation, full of secrets and hence, full of loneliness. It’s incredibly good–please try and watch if you can.
