At the end of the day will Ms. Fünke be just a one hit wonder or will she spur a whole new era in the movie biz? Only time will tell but for now, things are undoubtedly getting funky at the Fünke household. It was reported that her father is jealous of her budding fame and has refused to eat until he gets equal press time. Though that has not happened yet, it is said that he has scheduled a photo session for new head shots to cash in on his new svelt figure.

• George Sr. telling Michael to “get into the anus cart” — a.k.a. Tobias’s ANUSTART convertible — might have been one of the funniest lines of the season, topped only by Tobias’s physical comedy as he endlessly struggled to walk downhill.

Shawkat told Broadly that she wished she had been more assertive during the interview. She feared that no one heard her attempt to intervene, noting that “women’s voices need to be heard and, ironically enough, I wasn’t able to be heard.”

As Jason Bateman, David Cross and Tony Hale excused Tambor for verbally harassing co-star Jessica Walter, saying everyone has angry moments, Shawkwat, 29, interjected, saying, “But that doesn’t mean it’s acceptable.” Shawkat remained relatively quiet afterward, having felt the shift in the room.

Shawkat tried to find an opportunity to offer her own opinion, but her co-stars were talking over one another throughout the sit-down, which made speaking up difficult, she said. When she did finally speak, that was when Shawkat said Walter began to cry. “Once that happened, I realized we were having a public and private conversation at the same time, which is very unnatural,” the actress said. “All of a sudden, we’re having this intense moment as a group of people who’ve known each other for 15 years—and it’s being recorded.” The result? A strange, hybrid conversation in which the show’s male stars tried to offer candid opinions, but also avoid compromising themselves or Tambor. As Shawkat noted, the group had not strategized ahead of time about how to discuss the Tambor situation to the press. “Looking back,” she said, “I really wish we had.”

Despite my downbeat mood, an element of Arrested Development that I have always enjoyed since its birth is the family’s need to feel important, which continues in season 5 and one that continues to be glaringly obvious due to Michael’s calamitous ways of resisting such status. The whole concept of a rich family falling from a comforting empire, scouring the town’s floor for crumbs to cling onto a status that no-one cares about, is one that I have always admired in each season. So, here we go. Arrested Development Season 5 is the latest installment the fans yearned for, molded into a strategic two-part semi-Netflix Original season to continue the revival after Fox’s cancellation post-season 3.

As ever, the sight of Michael dramatically storming out on his family, only to inevitably return, remains the Sisyphean struggle that seems to hold the Bluths, like the series, together. And by returning to a relatively more linear narrative, not to mention its truly ensemble roots, Arrested Development has given something back to us by remembering that the Bluths are fundamentally bound by idiosyncrasy. At its best, the series continues to deftly skewer the interpersonal dynamics of a hilariously dysfunctional family. Though some characters do still disappear for long stretches during the new season, the entire family has been rejoined, and the volatile chemistry between its members is the combustion engine that drives Arrested Development’s chaotic storylines and self-referential <...> - by Slant Magazine - Season 5 [Michael Haigis]
