    It’s a joke. Twentieth Century Fox still owns the show, including the Netflix season(s).

    You should be able to find it under "Trailers & More."

    The new version works surprisingly well, especially considering that it was not written with this approach in mind.

    I’m watching the remix.... there’s more cutting between storylines which helps the rhythm feel more like that of the original show, but characters still disappear for episodes at a time and there’s still some scrambling of the timeline... seems to make it funnier though.

    I'm a few episodes into the remix and while it's certainly better than before, it's still disjointed at times and well, just not that funny. And it might be just be but Howard's narration often seems slow, like he's having trouble reading. Kinda gets on my nerves.

    Apparently, the remix mercifully whittles the episodes back down to the 22-minute range. When I watched these way back when, pretty much every episode I kept checking the time waiting for the thing to finally end. Maybe I'll give the remix a shot, but I don't think there's enough funny stuff in the episodes even at a reduced run time.

    I thought the original season four had too much narration and this one has even more... and it’s annoying if you’re bingeing because he keeps recapping things you just saw in the previous episode.

    Watched Season 5 of the trailer and laughed out loud. From what I saw, they have lost nothing and Season 5 looks to be awesome. Got a little misty at the end, too, thinking about all the time that has passed since I watched the first season on broadcast TV. Before 30 rock, Kimmy Schmidt, Modern Family... before the Office, even, there was Arrested Development. Half a career ago; it seems like a lifetime ago. So glad it's back and in true form.

    The remix still can't fix the jarring green screening in of characters who are not actually present during filming.

    But if this was what shipped instead of the original season 4 I'd have liked it a lot more. Now it seems like a repeat in a weird clip show-y format.

    I guess I missed something. What's up with Tambor?

    After watching a few more episodes I think the re-edit has helped tremendously. It's still material we've seen, but if you haven't seen Season 4 then this would be the preferred format for first viewing.

    Aaaaaand the trailer dropped a few days ago. I-I think I just blue myself (mods, its a joke from the show, not meant to be "dirty").

    Bad news and even worse news.

    Netflix aren't dropping all of season 5 at once - we're only getting the first eight episodes in May. The last half of the season won't be uploaded until the fall.

    And Portia de Rossi just announced that she's retiring from acting. So she's definitely not going to be in season 6 (and if you ever had any hopes of a 'Better Off Ted' revival, you can forget that too) and Jeffrey Tambor seems pretty unlikely. I'd not optimistic there will be another season at all now. This just might be it.

    Bring on more Better Off Ted, too... :D

    Given that only you, I, and cast members' moms watched BOT, I doubt that'll ever happen. Still one of my all-time favorite shows...
