Netflix shows like The Office: Arrested Development

Arrested Development premiered on FOX in 2001 and ran for three seasons before it was canceled. Years later, Netflix revived the series and made two new seasons of the series.

Mitch Hurwitz created the series about the legendary Bluth family. The show has an awesome cast with Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Portia de Rossi, David Cross, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat, and Tony Hale.

The series follows the Bluth family through the ups and downs of life. Michael (Bateman), the oldest son, takes over the family’s business after the dad, George (Tambor), goes to prison. Unfortunately, there are many, many strings attached.

The first three seasons of Arrested Development are incredible. Those seasons are so funny, and you have to watch them if you haven’t seen them.

The Netflix seasons, on the other hand, largely miss the mark. They didn’t achieve what made the show so special during those first few seasons, and that’s why they didn’t work, in my opinion.

You should definitely still check out the series on Netflix if you haven’t seen it or if you need a good show to rewatch.
