So funny it should be criminal!
Of all the DVD's I own (a lot) this whole series is by far the most used part of my collection. I think the reason a lot of Americans missed out on why this series was so funny is we are used to seeing comedy that parodies stereotypes we have of other people, whereas this series generally parodies stereotypes that other people have about Americans (we treat Mexican workers badly, we have a lot of money that we don't work for.) There is also a lot of jokes about things that arn't usually considered appropriate to joke about, like incest. Also, instead of having one joke that drags on and on a la Saturday Night live, the jokes are just quick one liners that will come up again and again in a variety of situations. That is one of the reasons I always come back to this show, I always find something I missed the other times I watched it.
My favorite episodes in season one are Alter Egos and Justice is Blind. They follow a series of events where Michael (the serious one) decides to have some fun for once and starts a one night stand with a blind attorney. It lasts a little longer then one night, and it turns out the attorney, Maggie Lizer, is the prosecutor and not blind. However, her guide dog, Justice, is.
How can you not find that funny?Read full review

ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE
Everything about Arrested Development is genius. From the writing to the directing and from the music to the production, this short lived series is still light years beyond what anyone is attempting to do currently and will continue to push the boundaries and the limits of TV series for years to come. Instant classic. I strongly encourage everyone to purchase this entire series or, at the very least, rent it or view it any way you can. 100% instant satisfaction guaranteed.

Arrested Development-Season 1 DVD Set
I bought this because the first season was taken off of Hulu.com before I could watch all of it and I am halfway through season 2. Buying this used was cheaper than renting it and now I get to keep it! This show is incredibly well written and the humor is fast moving. The story over the whole three seasons is well connected so I highly suggest you watch the first season before watching any others! Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, Portia de Rossi, Jeffrey Tambor, David Cross, Jessica Walter, Will Arnett and a constant supply of guest stars make this show highly entertaining!

Uniquely Funny... Infinitely Re-watchable.
I had been meaning to add Arrested Development to my DVD collection for a while now. This show is unique in that it is truly an ensemble cast- take away just one character and the show is incomplete. The subtle satire of the show is such a delight. The guest stars are perfectly cast. The core group of actors are so good together that it feels like the characters were built around them. One of the best shows I have seen, I recommend it to everyone all the time.

Arrested Development Season 1 Boxset Survives Round One
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...Read full review
