A mid-'00s classic comedy from Mitchell Hurwitz, "Arrested Development" was as funny, original and odd as anything most viewers had ever seen on a major TV network. Its influence remains wide and deep, and, in fact, the series has been born again on Netflix. Credit: Fox

"Arrested Development," the Netflix revival, has a date with destiny: May 26. Netflix announced Thursday that all 15 new episodes will be available to stream on that date, just after midnight.
