The correct order of select Arrested Development Season 1 episodes are as follows:

Episode 5 - Visiting Ours
Episode 6 - Charity Drive
Episode 7 - My Mother, the Car
Episode 8 - In God We Trust

However, on Netflix, while examining the season and autoplaying the episodes, the episodes are as follows:

Episode 5 - Charity Drive (actually Episode 6)
Episode 6 - Visiting Ours (actually Episode 5)
Episode 7 - In God We Trust (actually Episode 8)
Episode 8 - My Mother, the Car (actually Episode 7)

Obviously incorrect, and the storyline obviously jumps around. Why does Netflix do this?

Might be an honest mistake on their part. If that bothers you, you should take it up with the respective authorities at Netflix. – KeyBrd Basher Apr 18 '13 at 5:08
Seems like Netflix is using the broadcast order: Charity Drive aired before Visiting Ours, and In God We Trust aired before My Mother, the Car. – Oliver_C Apr 18 '13 at 10:31
@Oliver_C In another point, if this was the case for all series, then they should have Firefly in it's broadcast order, which is not the case. But I do agree, possibly take it up with Netflix as its most likely a mistake – TylerShads Apr 18 '13 at 12:16
Fortunately he didn't say they were doing that for all series, just that it appears to be the case here. – kekekela Apr 18 '13 at 14:01
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a decision made by Netflix and should be sent to their support team instead of posted here – Tom Aug 26 '13 at 15:11
