Full Show Summary

When the patriarch of the Bluth family is arrested because of shady businesses, it seems the clan will fall apart, due to the lack of money and the highly dysfunctional personalities of their members. However, Michael, the oldest son, manages to save the situation convincing them to live together in the model home of the mini-mansions that the father sold. Michael isn’t really fond of his relatives, but his sensitive son George-Michael really needs them around, so he’ll do his best to keep things moving forward, although their lives keep getting more and more weird. Arrested Development is a highly unusual comedic show in which the story isn’t as important as how it’s told. It’s shot with a hand-held video camera and has a continuous format, as in a reality show, only that everything is scripted and the story is highly surrealistic. Famed movie director Ron Howard acts as narrator in every episode. The cast does a really brilliant job, depicting characters on the very verge of sanity, and it includes names like Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi and Michael Cera. David Cross does a positively hilariuos job as Tobias Fünke, a failed actor with serious psychological issues. The show also features numerous guest stars, some of them really surprising, like Carl Weathers (Apollo Creed in the Rocky saga), who fares really well in this comedic incursion. Due to its unusual structure and visuals (no fancy cinematography here), Arrested Development is not a show for everyone - despite being repeatedly awarded in the Emmys and having many ardent fans, it usually struggled in the ratings, being canceled in 2006 (though it’s set to return in 2013 due to popular demand). In any case, watching a couple of episodes will be enough for any viewer to know if the particular humor of the show is to their liking.
