    The Bluth clan lives a life of excess, funded by the family credit card and paid for by the fortune patriarch George Bluth (Jeffrey Tambor) made in the tract home development business. Oldest son George Oscar Bluth II, nicknamed Gob, is an "illusionist" of minor importance who has anger management issues, while the youngest son Buster whiles away his days taking obscure graduate school courses. Daughter Lindsay (Portia de Rossi) is a vain socialite who throws parties with her sexually ambiguous husband (David Cross, MR. SHOW). The only sane member of the family is Linsay's twin brother Michael (Jason Bateman), a widower who stands to inherit the reins to the family corporation when his father retires. However, at the retirement party some unexpected obstacles are thrown into the mix: Michael, having informed the family that his first task as head of the company will be to confiscate everyone's credit cards, is passed over in favor of his snobby alcoholic mother, Lucille (Jessica Walter). Just when Michael decides to wash his hands of the family and move to Arizona with his 13-year-old son George Michael, George is arrested on fraud charges and the family's assets are frozen. Michael is forced to step up and aid his family in adjusting to their new lives. Shot with a shaky camera and a documentary air that creates a feeling of intimacy with the characters, ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT is reminiscent of Wes Anderson's THE ROYAL TENNENBAUMS and Christopher Guest's mockumentaries. Truly unique in the realm of TV sitcoms, it employs a cinematic humor that often exhibits a dark side. While targeting the filthy rich and the squeaky clean families of prime time, it also displays a certain tragedy in the characters' eccentricities and helplessness. During its two seasons on Fox Network it garnered massive critical acclaim, and was nominated for 7 Emmys, a Golden Globe, and won the TV Land "Future Classic" award.

    • Great show!

      This was a gift for my husband. We love the show, and wanted the chance to watch it from the start. A good value!

      This show is absolutely hilarious. If you've heard about it and think you might like it, you will. Now I'm waiting for season 2...

    • We love the Bluths!

      All I can say is, just get this...and you may as well get all three seasons at once, because if you get season one, and then finish it; and don't have season two available right that minute, you are going to be so bummed. We absolutely love this show and would recommend it to anyone. Some of the situations are a bit on the mature side, but the show isn't made for younger kids anyway. I'm so glad I didn't just rent these. The Bluths are part of our family now.

    • Definitely worth it!

      If you missed the show when it aired on Fox, I strongly suggest watching the DVDs. There's no other show like it and it's packed with different types of comedy - mostly situational, sometimes physical, a lot of irony and puns. Talented cast and great script - I highly recommend it! Overstock has a good price on the DVDs and it ships fast too!

    • arrested development season 1

      I'm exhausted. I stay up watching episode after episode and just can't walk away. I laugh throughout the following day thinking back to the insanity. I'm online buying season two right this moment!
