Critic Reviews for Blockheads

What I appreciated most about "Blockheads" wasn't the way that so many of the story lines were finally neatened up, joined, and trimmed off... The pleasures of "Blockheads" were in the emotional payoffs.

The ending to this fourth season is by default as amazing as the rest, given its existence was highly unlikely, but it falls just short of amazing otherwise.

Can Arrested Development suddenly play the drama of a father betraying a son for real? Is that what people want from the show? I know it felt very strange to me and also not earned, in TV terms.

The up-and-down fourth season kind of comes together in this finale....

A shocking episode, really, and a reinforcement that what the fourth series is really about is the growing estrangement between Michael and George Michael.

I was never the biggest fan of "Development Arrested," but I think "Blockheads" works fairly well because it has more modest goals.

To my eyes, "Blockheads" embodies the qualities of season four's best installments-a full-ish story for the main character, a light touch when representing the other side of events we've seen previously-while doing some necessary plot work.

Jason Bateman and Cera slid in to their old roles with ease this season, but the looks of betrayal and shame on their faces after George Michael took a swing were perhaps their best moment all season.
