There are undoubted parallels between Arrested Development and The Godfather: a corrupt father figure, two brothers, the heir to family business is named Michael, cousins in love… the list goes on. As to whether this was written on purpose by series creator Mitchell Hurwitz, well, we may never know the real answer to that question.
This mash-up might be a little too far-fetched, as it aligns the audio from Arrested Development to scenes from The Godfather Parts I, II, & III. Still, you can’t ignore the similarities!
Arrested Development and its series of 15 new episodes hit Netflix’s streaming service tomorrow night at midnight!
