Product Description

The hilarious comedy series follows the wildly eccentric and entertainingly dysfunctional Bluth family. It's the story of a wealthy family that lost everything, and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together. It's Arrested Development, the Emmy Award and Golden Globe-winning series starring one of the funniest ensembles in TV comedy, who taught viewers the meaning of “never nude,” spread a dangerous amount of misinformation about maritime law, and reminded everyone “that's why you always leave a note.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 18 Jan 2014
Format:DVD
Okay, this series is a little different. They couldn't get all the cast together so this series is a sort of anthology, each episode focussing on one character, though as with before everything is connected. Every episode, every story, every character affects and is affected by every other.

When I first watched this series I enjoyed it, but I wasn't thrilled. However, it's in the 2nd viewing (and 3rd and 4th and so on) that I realised that what I was watching was the same old show! It had the same jokes, the same depth, but cranked up another notch! Watch it and watch it again. I'm on my third viewing and now I barely think of it as any different to its predecessors.

Not to mention the fact it's gotten me totally psyched for the movie (which is definitely happening!)

Ok, well they already did jump the shark in a previous series! This series isn't a complete disaster compared to the previous adventures of the Bluth family. However the script writers do the best they can to make characters boring and strangely unlikeable. This forth outing is bookended by the breakdown in the relationship between Michael and his son, George Michael. George finally breaks free from the influence of his father (and the rest of the dysfunctional family) and begins to live his own life. Just a pity its quite boring.

The father-son dynamic doesn't seem to click this time around, both seem out of character in many ways. Borderline unlikeable for both of them. Isla Fisher is the love interest who (unwittingly) begins to drive a wedge between the father and son. Just a pity her performance is wooden and lacks a touch of humour. So the beginning and the end of this series are bogged down between the three characters and it can be a bit of a slog. Even when the show moves the focus on Lindsey and George senior, the laughs are still limited to what you would expect.

Thankfully Gob and Tobias save the day and the series. Despite the drab opening few episodes, the wait is worth the while as the story shifts to the most dysfunctional of the family members. Tobias, tobias, tobias......how did it all go so wrong? In each and every way you would expect it too. From his appearance at the "acting" classes to his harrassment from Marvel and his arrest......he saves this 4th installment from being a complete disaster. Gob, becomes part of an entourage and has a new romantic link to a previous character who you honestly wouldn't expect! Very funny in places but unfortunately not in many others. Perhaps taking itself a little too seriously at times especially when dealing with Michael and his son who become borderline irritating.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Just Bluth'd Myself 22 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Whilst it is true that the season starts off a little slowly/awkwardly, it soons picks up and we're back to the familiar Bluth family that we all know and love. Season 4 ended up becoming one of my favourite seasons due to the character development (seeing Michael as being as manipulative as the rest of his family, seeing GOB more humanised as he comes to terms with both his sexuality and his generally screwed up life etc) and although most people didn't like the "fragmented", one-storyline approach, I actually think it gave the show a chance to focus on the individual family members more deeply, which was something I appreciated having fallen in love with these (admittedly awful) characters throughout the first three seasons. I suppose I can understand why people didn't like the fourth season, but I am not one of those people. I urge you to stick with it for a few episodes and you'll soon be laughing just as much as you were throughout seasons one to three!

I have to say when i heard about the new season i was excited but also a bit of dread especially when i heard about the new concept, which was basically put into place because of diary conflicts with the cast. I have to say on first watch i enjoyed the first 4 episodes but it wasn't as incredibly witty, clever and smart as previous seasons which if you have seen the previous seasons you will know that is in no way a bad thing just a testament to how good the previous seasons are.

Now around episode 5 alot of things begin to click, things that you weren't aware were jokes or relevant start falling into place and the storylines all merge and for me at least provided a fulfilling pay off and this also provides with great rewatch value that you expect from the show.

So the season served the purpose perfectly in my eyes of catching up on the last 10 years we have missed with the Bluth family and now we are upto date how about a 5th season with the family all back together in the old format.
