What Was That Watermark On "Arrested Development"?

What Was That Watermark On "Arrested Development"?Twitter

The new season of Arrested Development finally premiered on Netflix last night, and luckily, everybody binge-watching did not break the internet. In the unlikely even that you haven't even started, fans were confused by a text watermark that showed up in flashback scenes.

The watermark read "Showstealer Pro Trial Version" and could be seen across the screen whenever the show cut to scenes from its initial three-year run on Fox. This was apparently a joke by producers—implying that they had to get old scenes illegally to use in the new, Netflix-ony season.

The critically acclaimed show was famously canceled by Fox in 2006 due to low ratings, despite winning an Emmy. So, we get the joke, but it seems that most people were more annoyed and confused. And that's why you always leave a note.
