'Arrested Development' Fake Shows Now on Netflix

December 19, 2012


To the delight of Arrested Development fans and the inevitable disappointment of perverts looking for video of boy-fights, Netflix has now added episodes of AD's meta shows--including Boyfights, Mock Court with J. Reinhold, and the inimitable Wrench--to their streaming service. As these are not actual shows, clicking for video merely takes you to a relevant clip from Arrested Development, but Netflix did go through the trouble of making cover art and full write-ups for them all, presumably so that bloggers would for the nth time remind everyone how the cult comedy is getting new episodes this spring. You win, Netflix.

Nonetheless, it's a pretty clever, subtle promotional effort, and worth taking a look at. To save you the trouble of searching for them all, I've collected the full lot of covers and summaries below. The lack of Homeless Dad and Love Indubitably is an oversight we'll sadly have to live with.

It's brother vs. brother in this compilation of adolescent boyfights, featuring "A Day in the Life of American Boys," "A Boyfights Cookout," and more!
