Happy post-holiday weekend. We’re all on “Arrested Development” overload at this point, so this will be my only reference to the fourth season - after two episodes, I was severely underwhelmed and disappointed with the new season. But as the season progressed, I found myself warming to it, and though I maeby didn’t love it as much as I would’ve hoped, I’m certainly happier to have it than to not. Anyway, that it got off to a slow start is something that Mitch Hurwitz says is to be expected. (Hollywood Reporter)

Back in the day, “Arrested Development” aired on Fox. Fox is facing a pretty big change in its routine now, as its reality guru, Mike Darnell, who is probably the individual most singularly responsible for the modern reality TV landscape, is stepping down. (Futon Critic)

Speaking of “Arrested Development” on Netflix, the streaming service has decided that it’s not going to let us know in advance before they start yanking titles. Arrogance! And good business sense. (WG)

Turning from TV to the movies, Universal is planning to reboot Timecop. Despite having a wholly unjustifiable sweet spot for the leg-splitting Van Damme classic, there is potential here for a legitimately good movie if Universal does it right. We can all agree that’s unlikely, right? (Hollywood Reporter)

Speaking of doing it right, this $249 highly-detailed Darth Vader figure is absolutely doing it right. WANT. (Nerd Approved)

Let’s move from nerd figurines to nerd photos. First, we’ll go super tiny, with the awesome first ever image of the actual wave function of a hydrogen atom’s electron orbit:

Now let’s zoom way the hell out to a nebula. Io9 notes that it looks like the Eye of Sauron, which it does. But looking at it right after the above pic, what strikes me most, aside from the sheer beauty of it, is the remarkable similarity between the macroscopic and microscopic. The universe is a helluva thing, ain’t it:

With summer here, it’s time to start getting our beach reading on. Yesterday, I spent my time at the beach reading appellate briefs. It was f*cking rad. For my next beach trip, hopefully I can get to proper summer reading. Wondering what books could be this summer’s “Gone Girl?” Though I’m not sure that any of these will break out quite like that, here are a few suggestions for ya. I’m particularly looking forward to Max Barry’s latest, “Lexicon.” (Salon)

Could Netflix’s next revival be “Xena: Warrior Princess”? Maeby? (Uproxx)

Fun fact: it only takes 5 million Legos to build a life-size X-wing. (Unreality)

This whole interview, where Will Smith compares African-American parenting styles to slavery, makes me exceedingly uncomfortable. (Celebitchy)

Word is that Dan Harmon has been asked back to “Community” by NBC, although it’s unlikely he will accept. (Vulture)

Finally, speaking of Barry, the movie Syrup, based on his first book (he did the screenplay too), comes out in a few weeks (June 7) and is currently available on demand. It’s not great, but it’s an amusing enough distraction and that Amber Heard sure is purty. I’ll leave ya with the trailer:
