This is a great DVD absolutely hilarious, a different angle of comedy using narrative script and hilarious characters, a truly good watch!
With the American sitcom being redefined by the likes of Malcolm In The Middle and Scrubs, Arrested Development adds to the dysfunctionality with aplomb. A wealthy family has to stick together when the father is arrested for his company's misdemeanours. The middle son Michael takes charge of the Bluth Company as well as his family but will either take any notice? Jason Bateman's character seems to be the only sane one of the lot, as his socialite mother and self-involved siblings help the family self-destruct.
Marvellously written and hilariously acted, the team behind Arrested Development have managed to make the show's mockumentary style extremely believable and extremely funny. Each episode in this first series gives an insight into what makes this family so brilliantly comic. David Cross is hilarious as closet homosexual (and the worlds first Analrapist) Tobias. Michael Cera as Michael"s son George Michael (great name!) is a very talented young actor who brings his character's insecurities such humour. And these aren"t even the main characters!
If any show deserved more than three seasons, its this one. Recently cancelled, you should get hold of this series before it is thrown on the heap of old sitcoms that were too good for its audience. An intelligent and genuinely funny programme, Arrested Development is to the Americans what "The Office" was to us Brits - so good, so funny, but over so soon.
