It’s good news overall. Arrested Development‘s reruns have found a home. Three homes, in fact. And those three homes are… MSN, HDNet, and G4.
I know: Sounds like I’m speaking math or something. But it’s really very simple, if oddly boring: MSN will rebroadcast the subversive comedy online. (You know what’s really subversive? It’s already online. Ssssshhhh! Don’t tell MSN!) G4, heretofore known as "that videogame channel" (but hereafter heralded as "that videogame channel that also has that one show I want to see") will handle the conventional cable syndication. And HDNet will provide the high-definition broadcast, in case you want to see the running jokes creator Mitchell Hurwitz nestled in Michael Bluth’s pores. Holographic rights are still up for grabs.
It’s truly a post-Family Guy world: Network cult castoffs are the bread-and-butter of lower-tier media platforms. And nothing jibes with GOB like a Ghost Recon commercial, right? No, I’m not going to be bitter. Air is air. I will fight through the dry-as-dust corporate abbreviations and muster the energy for a final, celebratory chicken dance.
