Have you seen the new Arrested Development episodes. Of course you have. While a lot of people loved them just fine as they are, many others had a problem with the non-standard editing, which didn’t really resemble the original show.
Now, thanks to the miracle that is “nerds on the internet”, we have what the new episodes might have looked like in a more typical season.
Reddit user mophinapg took all of the individual episodes, mainly focusing on single characters, and edited them into a more traditional format. The files are available in a smaller 368p format (about 200-400MB per episode) and 1080p, which is obviously larger, and not finished uploading just yet.
Here’s mophinapg’s breakdown of the new episodes:
Episode 1: Take to the Sea! (21:48)

We don’t usually delve into fanedits, but heck, we love Arrested Development enough that we’re making an exception. Happy endings for everyone, thanks to the internet. [Reddit]
