Critic Reviews for Off the Hook

This first and only Buster episode clicks along nicely, perhaps because Buster is so singularly weird and delightful.

I may have done a spit-take.

Buster's installment was a really fun one; the kind of fun only a creepy, mother-obsessed, giant-handed guy can bring.

The Buster episode of season four comes too late to be as effective as it could have been, despite its solid jokes.

A genuinely fun and interesting episode, showcasing the best of Arrested's weirdness, creativity and darkness.

May 18, 2018 | Full Review…

"Off The Hook" is yet another taut, frequently hysterical Arrested Development, which again works so well because its lead character is mostly doing his own thing.

"Off The Hook" contains the most belly laughs per minute of any season-four episode.

"Off the Hook" was a fine showcase for Tony Hale that not only allowed him to show off many different shadings of Buster's oddness... but also show some new sides to Buster in a way that seemed natural.
