Critic Reviews for Arrested Development: Season 2

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

Put simply, this is the best sitcom on television, a biting yet somehow endearing exploration of family dysfunction.

Writing?nay, thinking?about Arrested fosters in me two unproductive urges: to describe how hilarious the show is, and to beg people to watch it.

Arrested Development looks even better this fall, against an even more contemptible lineup of reality dreck.

August 16, 2013 | Full Review…

Smart, unruly, and very fast, Arrested is the ultimate TV series for our TiVo age.

The hilarity continues in the second season of Arrested Development as things get even crazier. The story of the Bluth family picks up where Season 1 left off as George flees from the law and takes shelter in the attic of the model home that his family lives in; meanwhile Michael and Gob compete for control of the family business as their estranged uncle tries to reconnect with their brother Buster. The show is jam-packed with plots for each character that carry over from episode to episode, which gives the series a very rich and textured feel. And the comedy hits harder as the humor gets more outlandish and irreverent. The guest stars also get bigger this season, and include J.K. Simmons, Martin Short, Ben Stiller, and everyone's favorite...Franklin. Another brilliant season of television, Arrested Development: Season 2 is a laugh riot that doesn't let up.
