Movie synopsis
The Bluth clan lives a life of excess, funded by the family credit card and paid for by the fortune patriarch George Bluth (Jeffrey Tambor) made in the tract home development business. Oldest son George Oscar Bluth II, nicknamed Gob, is an "illusionist" of minor importance who has anger management issues, while the youngest son Buster whiles away his days taking obscure graduate school courses. Daughter Lindsay (Portia de Rossi) is a vain socialite who throws parties with her sexually ambiguous husband (David Cross, MR. SHOW). The only sane member of the family is Linsay's twin brother Michael (Jason Bateman), a widower who stands to inherit the reins to the family corporation when his father retires. However, at the retirement party some unexpected obstacles are thrown into the mix: Michael, having informed the family that his first task as head of the company will be to confiscate everyone's credit cards, is passed over in favor of his snobby alcoholic mother, Lucille (Jessica Walter). Just when Michael decides to wash his hands of the family and move to Arizona with his 13-year-old son George Michael, George is arrested on fraud charges and the family's assets are frozen. Michael is forced to step up and aid his family in adjusting to their new lives.Shot with a shaky camera and a documentary air that creates a feeling of intimacy with the characters, ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT is reminiscent of Wes Anderson's THE ROYAL TENNENBAUMS and Christopher Guest's mockumentaries. Truly unique in the realm of TV sitcoms, it employs a cinematic humor that often exhibits a dark side. While targeting the filthy rich and the squeaky clean families of prime time, it also displays a certain tragedy in the characters' eccentricities and helplessness. During its two seasons on Fox Network it garnered massive critical acclaim, and was nominated for 7 Emmys, a Golden Globe, and won the TV Land "Future Classic" award.

Editorial reviews

"Wickedly cynical, always taking the joke a step too far to deranged effect..."
Uncut - Chris Roberts (04/01/2004)

"Handheld, faux-verite camerawork and skittish chronology are complemented by a voraciously eclectic aesthetic..."
Sight and Sound - Ben Walters (05/01/2005)

"It became a critics' darling and was the surprise winner of the Emmy for best comedy series."
Los Angeles Times - Susan King (10/21/2004)

"With wacky, deadpan humor and Seinfeld-like pretzel plots..."
Movieline's Hollywood Life - Andre Chautard (10/01/2004)

An excellent series that was far too short lived.

Review For: Arrested Development - Season 1 (DVD, 2009, 3-Disc Set)

Season 1 of Arrested Development is one of the best seasons of any show I have ever seen. The cast is hilarious and works well together. Clever writing and jokes with multiple meanings add to the enjoyment.

I think a big reason the show did not stay on TV too long is that missing a few episodes or trying to watch the show from the middle is difficult as each episode builds on the previous ones. Jokes and situations from previous shows are referenced and would be difficult to understand if you have not watched many of the previous episodes. Also, a good deal of the humor is subtle and based on word play, which is not to say there is a lack of physical humor and obvious humor too.

Arrested Development Season 1 Boxset Survives Round One

Review For: Arrested Development - Season 1 (DVD, 2009, 3-Disc Set)

Four years after its release, the arrested development season one box set has survived what obvious viewing pleasure could have incurred through the time frame from one family in Canada (specifics not specifically specified) to that of an exciting young couple located in Saratoga Springs NY, USA. As current owner of this magnificent product, I would love to first thank the academy. Special thanks to all those who mentored and guided me toward learning how to understand and operate a computer, and of course, navigate the internet. Although I have not yet viewed what exciting episodes of arrested development stories have to offer in season one, EVER, I want to note that its condition favors more of a 'through the years' defensive one. It appears that the package would have arrived in mint condition, had the postal workers not admittedly played rugby with it. In Canada and then in USA for a rematch because of previous weather conditions. It is apparent that this very material object itself found its path of life led to me through a divine strength and connection with the laws of attraction...

Greatest show to have ever been cancelled!

Review For: Arrested Development - Season 1 (DVD, 2009, 3-Disc Set)

Arrested Development is definitely one of the greatest shows that Fox ever had. It's too bad that this superstar comedic line up only made 3 seasons of this hilarious comedy. Anyone who has ever enjoyed one-liners will find millions within this purchase. Absolutely great show! Terrific buy for a movie lover who likes to watch things again and again! Don't pass this show up! Truly worth the buy!

Arrested Development -- Season 1

Review For: Arrested Development - Season 1 (DVD, 2009, 3-Disc Set)

Arrested Development is the funniest show on television in a very long time. Anyone who hasn't seen it should give it a try. We feel the characters are like friends.

Amazing show

Review For: Arrested Development - Season 1 (DVD, 2009, 3-Disc Set)

This show was one of the funniest I have ever seen. I still count Seinfeld and MASH as my favortes but this is probably going to be right behind them. I am amazed at how well, how clever, this show was written. The first season of course has all the set up for the series, but also has that fresh feel of complete originality. I have never in my life seen a show like this, and I doubt I ever will. It is a complete shame most people never watched it.
