TV shows on Netflix: Arrested Development
Created by Mitchell Hurwitz
Cast: Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Portia de Rossi, Michael Cera, Jeffrey Tambor, David Cross, Tony Hale, Alia Shawkat, Jessica Walter
It’s hard to imagine a show with a great cast, killer running jokes, and a superb writing team which hilariously incorporated issues of the era into the show, was only on the air three seasons before it was canceled. However, America is full of a bunch of idiots, so I guess it all makes sense in hindsight.
Is there anyone in the world who doesn’t love the Bluths?
Obviously, they’re terrible, selfish people, but they’re all so unique and hilarious in their own way.
From living in a model home to the absolute worst chicken impressions, the Bluths are the funniest human family in TV history. Obviously, The Simpsons take the cake for funniest family, but the Bluths are a close second.
There’s never been a show like Arrested Development that was willing to do anything and everything to pay off quick, witty humor. It doesn’t get any better than the scene when Buster is swimming in the ocean, mad at his mother, and, from the shore, someone yells “Loose seal,” but Buster, in his rage, obviously thinks the person is yelling his mother’s name, Lucille. Because of the miscommunication, Buster loses a hand to the vicious seal.
