Next Sunday, Netflix is releasing the full season of “Arrested Development” episodes on a single day. Ready, set, go to your couches for a 7½-hour mind-meld with the Bluth family.

But of course you will probably have forgotten a lot of what you saw; the brain tends to purge when overloaded on a Lost Weekend, especially when material moves as fast and furiously as it does on “Arrested Development.” And you will most likely be alone in your know-all status, which means you won’t be sharing all the puns, self-references, and sick twists that you do remember with many people, including the spoiler-averse who’ve started but not finished the season. You’ll be done with season 4 in the proverbial blink of an eye.
