Review

It’s just such a damn good show, and this new, independently financed documentary is truly preaching to the choir as far as I’m concerned. Director Jeff Smith has managed to assemble a really fun little documentary despite a tiny budget (partially financed on Kickstarter). Smith was able to coral all the major cast members (with Michael Cera being the one conspicuous absence), in addition to the show-runner Mitchell Hurwitz, and most of the regular writers and directors (including AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR directors Anthony and Joe Russo who are given a lot of credit for establishing the technique used to shoot the show). Even Ron Howard is here, for an extensive, candid interview where- among other things- he mentions Fox Network owner Rupert Murdoch once admitting to him that he didn’t care for the show (although he agrees with the sentiment that it probably belonged on cable). The stories are plentiful. Will Arnett talks about Michael Cera ending up on the Emmy redcarpet between Michael Douglas and Sarah Jessica Parker, and being confused by the paparazzi who kept screaming Michael!!! Sarah!!! Michael!!! Sarah!!! . Given that the interviews were shot before the netflix deal was announced, there’s a bit of resentment coming from the interviewees about how the show ended before it’s time, and was never given a fair shake by Fox. Luckily, the show is back for a (hopefully) triumphant fourth season. –Jo Blo
