Fan Edits Season Four of Arrested Development in Chronological Order

The AV Club[FONT=Verdana] linked to Reddit user [/FONT]morphinapg[FONT=Verdana], who not only edited the 15 episodes down to 11, but gave them new names. You can [/FONT]link to them all here[FONT=Verdana].

[FONT=Verdana]Here’s morphinapg’s write up and explanation of the process. [/FONT]
[INDENT]I did as much as I could to make these feel like real episodes. I made sure to separate the episode by storylines, rather than looking for specific times. I also included the opening theme, which I modified myself, and also the “on the next Arrested Development” as well as the credits (although the credits for episodes 1-11 are just a repeat of S04E01′s credits).
I edited the narration to try to feel more natural when transitioning between scenes from different episodes. Sometimes I would cut narration or do a partial cut of it to make things feel nicer. For large scenes with multiple perspectives I would make sure to not have any duplicate things happening in the background, which did require a few cuts here and there, but nothing major. Most of that only happened in the police station scene, most other scenes were linear enough to easily be edited. I tried to keep as much original editing as possible, unless chronology required a split. The music does occasionally sound weird between edits, but for the most part I think the edits, and the episodes themselves, work pretty good for what I had to work with. I can’t 100% guarantee the accuracy of my ordering, but I feel like I did a pretty good job. I did allow occasional slight backtracking, if placed at the beginning of an episode, but it doesn’t affect the chronology very much.

Powered through all of them in about a day and a half. The editing is really, really, really rough in points, but he was working with what he had. It was also super duper rewarding to watch all of the elements come together. Highly recommended viewing.

No surprise there. Maybe the editor should be nudged this direction...

Netflix has announced that there would be a Blu-Ray/DVD release of House of Cards, one of their other original series. However, they haven't said if it would be rental only through their service or if it would be available through retailers. I'm guessing it will be the latter.

They would be foolish to not sell physical copies.

It would be, but media companies do foolish things all the time.

Oh cool, Mitch Hurwitz is now working on re-editing AD Season 4 into a Chronological Cut.
