This review is from: Arrested Development - Season 2 [DVD] (DVD)
This is simply one of the funniest shows you will ever encounter. Anyone who is sick of the garbage that so often passes for comic writing will not fail to disagree that 'AD' is an oasis in an otherwise barren wasteland. Within the 'sitcom' genre perhaps the only other show that comes remotely close to the originality and ingenuity of 'AD' is 'Seinfeld'. The only shame is that this show is/was shown on Fox, which wouldn't understand 'funny' if it bite them on the behind. Moreover, and this is not an overstatement, 'AD' proves that an critical intelligence still exists in the United States, one that is not bogged down by the suffocating atmosphere of disingenuous 'political correctness', passivity, fatalism or the consumer haven that we have carved out for ourselves. The impeccable performances, along with the quality of the writing produce a show that will have a cult following for years to come.
