Let’s face it: we’re more excited about “Arrested Development” coming back than anything else in 2013. It’s been five years since Fox’s short-lived comedy series went off the air, and we’ve been missing it every day since. That’s why the news that Netflix had purchased the rights to the series and is going to shoot new episodes to air in two years sent us over the moon in joy, and we’ll be counting down the days until its release date.

Entertainment Weekly sat down with Tony Hale, aka Buster Bluth, to discuss returning to the model home and everything else that new episodes of “Arrested Development” entails. Needless to say, he’s come up with some pretty extravagant ideas for his character in the five years since the show went off the air.

“I want him to go bionic,” Hale said. “Maybe he connected with Apple, and there’s some sort of iPod attachment. Maybe he’s got like an iPad as a hand? … Surely, with the advances of technology, something interesting has happened.”

That being said, Hale doesn’t expect Buster to have changed too much since the show reached its open-ended conclusion in 2006. He doesn’t think Buster will have strayed too far from his mother’s side, but maybe over that time he’ll have reignited the old flame with his former girlfriend, Lucille 2 (played by Liza Minelli).

“I’d love for Liza Minnelli to come back. I’d love for Buster to see his girlfriend again,” Hale said.

It turns out that he doesn’t have a better idea of what creator Mitch Hurwitz is up to than anyone else out there. “I’m most excited about seeing what Mitch is stirring up — where he’s going to take these people. What has happened in the past five years of their lives?” he said.

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
