    Netflix Gets 14 Emmy Nods for House of Cards, Arrested Development, and Hemlock Grove

    Those of you who are up early watching the Emmy nominations roll in this morning -- as well as, y'know, those of you who know where Twitter is -- have no doubt already heard, but it's worth mentioning that Kevin Spacey just landed a well-deserved Emmy nomination for Best Actor for his work in the Netflix original series House of Cards. That will come as no surprise to anyone who watched the excellent political thriller produced by Netflix this year, but considering it's the first Emmy nomination for a show that was never actually on TV, it's a noteworthy, if not entirely unexpected, achievement. That it's one of a dozen Emmy nominations for original content on the streaming service says a good deal more.

    George Michael Bluth’s Unfailing Internal Clock’s Surprisingly Unfailing [Video]

    The Arrested Development team is nothing if not fanatically attentive to even the smallest detail of their work. Case in point? YouTube user Steven Paananen decided to put George Michael's sense of timing to the test and... well, timed it. I can't even tell you what the result is because it feels blasphemous to speak it aloud -- you just have to watch the video. It's just too magical and amazing for mere words. Bless you, Arrested Development. Bless you.

    Netflix, Arrested Development, and the Growing Prevalence of Binge-Watching

    The concept of watching a bunch of episodes of a TV show at once is either called 'binge-watching' or 'marathoning' the show. Those terms describe two ways of looking at something that's becoming increasingly common thanks to DVDs, DVRs, and online streaming. Is it a binge? An ugly, messy, yet addictive experience in consumption? Or is it a marathon? A long, arduous undertaking that you're proud of afterward? Netflix arguably shifted things further towards marathoning with the release of Arrested Development.

    Bluthfighter Parody Video Makes Living Without an Arrested Development Fighting Game Seem Pointless [Video]

    A few weeks ago, we brought you the trailer for LEGO Breaking Bad, a brilliant concept for a video game that will probably never see the light of day. Now, the animator behind that piece of awesome is back with another mashup we just can't resist -- a Street Fighter-style fighting game featuring the characters from Arrested Development. Brian Anderson's proof of concept features a battle to the death between Gob and Tobias, with guest tag-ins from the likes of Tony Wonder and Carl Weathers. It is, in other words, everything we never knew we wanted in a video game and then some.

    Revel in All the Fake Websites on Arrested Development With This Amazing Supercut [Video]

    Longtime readers of Geekosystem will know that we sure do love the online technology that gets made up for TV shows and movies -- the more generic and hokey, the better. Nobody puts together a fictitious website frontpage like Arrested Developmentthough (although I have to admit that I really enjoyed many of the Heroes first season ARG sites at the time), and the latest season definitely did not disappoint in that regard. Luckily, Slacktory's saved you the trouble of "Something" searching for all those references yourself with a supercut of all the important ones. I'm surprised that so many of those domains are still up for grabs. Why hasn't anybody snatched up BarryGood.Biz yet?

    Arrested Development May Be Back From the Dead, But These 13 Shows Should Just Stay Down

    Since Arrested Development came back this weekend, a lot of people have been talking about other shows that Netflix should revive. There was even the #ShowsThatNeedToComeBack hashtag on Twitter. The only show that should be revived is The Cosby Show, so let's end this pointless debate and instead let's focus on shows that need to stay good and dead.

    Everyone Calm Down There Are New Arrested Development Clips

    It's almost time. We've all been clamoring for more Arrested Development since its untimely demise in 2006, and after seven years it's finally happening and we are freaking out. Now Netflix has released four tantalizingly short clips of what's to come, and we're just going to have to watch them in a nonstop loop until the episodes drop on Sunday. That's assuming we make it until then. Breathe, everyone. We can do this.

    Here Comes A New Challenger! The Tobias Funke/Capcom Mashup The Internet Has Been Waiting For

    Yesterday, we were almost giddy over the news that you can now green screen Arrested Development's Tobias Funke (doctor, actor, and the world's first analrapist) into any video through the promotional magic of the new InsertMeAnywhere tool. We were so excited at this development, though, that we actually may have missed one of the other awesome uses for InsertMeAnywhere -- putting the many faces of Tobias Funke to work in video games. Capcom didn't miss a beat, though, and their supercut of Tobias guest-starring in a number of classic Capcom games has officially won Tobias Funke green screens. Well, it's won Round One, anyway.

    Put Tobias Funke in the Movies With InsertMeAnywhere

    So, remember when we told you yesterday that a) there was going to be a good deal of Arrested Development promotional material arriving in the coming weeks and b) you were going to see a lot of it here, because we're pretty damn excited for the show's return? Yeah, we totally meant that. The latest piece of promotional brilliance is With InsertMeAnywhere, which you can use to cram up to 100% more Tobias Funke into any existing video, from cinematic classics to home movies.

    Every Arrested Development Running Gag in One Amazing Interactive Visualization

    Well, it was a nice workday while it lasted. But it's already mid-morning, and the time for productivity has come to an end. The time for goofing around on Recurring Developments, an interactive map of every running gag -- every awkward shoulder rub, every huge mistake, every "Her?" --  in the first three seasons of Arrested Development has just begun. If you can't catch up on the episodes by brazenly just watching television at work, this is probably the next best thing, though it would probably serve to keep an important looking Word document open in another window. You know, just in case your co-workers didn't get the memo that we have half-day.

    The Final Countdown Begins: New Arrested Development Trailer is Here, Has Kind of a Lot of Birds

    I mean, not, like, a lot a lot of birds? But definitely more birds than I was expecting. Also, one of them is an ostrich, a bird so big that it clearly counts double, even though it can't fly. Let's don't get hung up on the birds, though. With less than two weeks to go until the fourth season of Arrested Development makes its glorious debut on Netflix,this new trailer also hosts plenty of things you would expect from the show including but not limited to: The stair car. Bluth model homes falling apart. Gob's magic tricks illusions.

Clearly, the most important story of this week is Arrested Development's new character posters, which we present here for your perusal. Here's hoping they make your day as immeasurably better as they've made ours.
