This review is from: Arrested Development - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Despite a relative lack of publicity and success in America, other than its Emmy award win (which is totally deserved) this series is highly reccomendable. As the opening credits reveal its the story of one family who are struggling to manage following the arrest of their father George Bluth Snr. Holding them all together is Michael, the most well adjusted member of the family. The series is basically about the trials and tribulations that they undergo in trying to survive without the money that they were once afforded and changing set of circumstances which arose out of the patriarchs arrest. This series is consistently amusing and there are many laugh out loud moments (Tobias in general is hilarious) Its probably the best commedy out there at the moment, except maybe for C4s the Peep Show, and you will probably have to watch the episodes a couple of times just to keep up with the gags. If all that isn't enough Ron Howards the narrator, the ultimate stamp of quality!!
