Arrested Development (Season 5 Part 1) (2018)

After an underwhelming fourth season, “Arrested Development” returns with a fifth season that seems cheaply made up of unused leftovers. All the problems that plagued the fourth season are here: The plot is too complicated, the actors barely share any scenes together, the humor is forced, and nobody seems to want to be there (with the lone exception of Portia De Rossi, who makes a valiant attempt to rise above the lukewarm material). It refuses to reveal any of the mysteries from the last season and leaves a number of plot threads hanging, which highlights just how creatively bankrupt this revival has been so far.

Rating: ★★ (out of 5)
