Like "It's Always Sunny" you have to watch from the beginning or you won't get most of the humor and character development.
Easliy one of my favorite seasons of television ever made.
A TV show with the perfect characters and setting for comedy. The perfect depiction of a dysfunctional family.
This Is by far the best show I have ever seen! If you want to binge watch a well written/ hilarious show...look no further.
Arrested Development is a rare case of steady direction, hilarious and well-written script and a talented ensemble cast that combine to deliver a great comedy sitcom.
I guess you love it or hate it. I hate it. In the face of overwhelming opposition, I can't even be bothered to say why.
One of my personal favourite examples of single camera sitcom is arrested development, a satirical comedy that follows the life of Michael (Jason Bateman) who leads his strange family and their real-estate development business following a securities fraud situation caused by his own father.
Along the way, Tobias (David Cross) directs Maeby (Alia Shkat) in a school play, and George Sr. (Jeffery Tambor) calls on Gob (Will Arnett) to cover a company error. A young Michael Cera, Jessica Walter, Tony Hale, Portia De Rossi, Henry Winkler and Liza Minneli also star throughout.
This show received incredible scores from critics worldwide, receiving 100% on rotten tomatoes and each episode receiving no lower than an 8/10 on imdb. Its brilliantly innovative for the more mature viewers and is honestly heaven-sent for anyone whos been longing for something outside of the comedy norm. Its comedy is so unique using an interesting meta narrative. Arrested development is produced by Ron Howard, who also serves as narrator throughout the duration of the programme, Hes the ideal comic choice: a down to earth, family friendly voice subversively put to the service of a comedy about a wildly dysfunctional family.
The closest the Bluth family comes to normal is in the form of Michael (Jason Batemans character) a hardworking widower with a 13-year-old son named George Michael, a name choice that proves his dad is a bit off himself. Although off, his intentions are pure, Michael has spent his life sacrificing for the Bluth family development business, but his reward he thinks, is on the way: A long, expected partnership. Its safe to say out of all the family members hes certainly the only sibling who deserves a promotion. His twin sister, Lindsay spends the family money on losing causes, such as an anti-circumcision movement. And as for his older brother Gob is a failed magician: and his younger brother Buster
well he just generally fails at everything he participates in. And finally, we have Lindsays husband, Tobias is an ex-doctor who is assumed to be gay by everyone... including Lindsay.
Yet instead of promoting Michael, George Bluth Sr. gives the job to Michaels brittle mother and then promptly gets dragged off to jail by the SEC.
This show is a great example of single camera drama, the comedic value is high whilst still engaging audiences throughout. It uses traditional single camera techniques, yet also stays unique and gives audiences a completely new experience by introducing incredibly well written characters, there quirky mannerisms will sometimes leave you in stitches, these characters paired with the sarcastic narration is just fantastic. As previously mentioned we follow a Meta narrative it isnt as straight forward as most shows placed within the same category.
Incredible television. I long for a comedic TV shows as brilliantly executed as Arrested Development.
Extremely well acted, although it's less noticeable when the show's not funny. Aside from the first three episodes, and Episode 11, I barely laughed. Not quite sure why everyone likes this so much.
It's hilarious and unpredictable; nuanced and complex; well-written and well-acted. (The Original) Arrested Development rests at the pinnacle of the Mt. Everest of TV-Sitcoms.
