Herein rests the final 13 jaw-dropping, hysteria-inducing, laugh 'till it hurts episodes of one of television's finest comedies. Frankly, considering today's 'comedies', it's a wonder it lasted as long as it did. If this show had a flaw, it's that it was just too smart for it's own good, with a few too many double and triple entendres; too many subtle visual shenanigans; and over-the-top comedic situations that danced between the edge of the hilarious and the absurd. The very best that comedy had to offer. If people didn't like it, chances were good that it was because they just didn't get it....but that's okay, because it wasn't written with them in mind. Niche audience? Maybe. But what a great niche it was. I loved this show and I think if you give it a will too. quote

Arrested Development is one of the best series from TV. It is so funny, off the wall, unexpected, ridiculous, I laugh during every episode...and have to watch a scene over because I laugh too loud and miss the dialogue. It is not a show to watch while you are doing something else...each phrase, each expression, each side-ways glance is a gem to tickle your sense of humor. The sly mockery is genius. The acting is superb. Each episode, each character takes you places you'll not see on tv today. This is not usually a 'traditional feel-good' show is often disturbing...delightfully so. And Ron Howard narrates each episode...and even makes fun of himself. The dvd outtakes are good, the commentary for a couple of episodes is good, the show is the star though. This is the wackiest family and most bizarre situations...a lot of twists in the plot too...Get all the Arrested Development DVDs...well worth it. Oh...and Liza Minelli is absolutely fantastic, just perfect.

Will go down as one of the BEST SHOWS of all time

by Michael Mott on 7/9/2006

Arrested Development is one of those shows that was ahead of its time. Ten years from now people will realize what a great show this was when it is on repeats on Nick at Nite. I guess the fact that we got three great seasons of Arrested is a reason to be happy. There has never been a show that rewarded the hard core fan for watching every second of every episode. The jokes were so dense and deep in the show that they had multiple meanings. Arrested is a show meant for the Tivo and DVD age.

I've been Arrested for the third time!

on 9/15/2006

The only thing bad about this DVD is knowing this is the last we'll see of the show. I recommend it to any fan. It's a must buy.

But he's soon pulled over by the police who tell him that his father, George Sr., has broken out of prison. Due to the company's shady business deal with Iraq, Michael could face prison time, so he returns home to clear his name even as George Sr. secretly flees to Mexico, Tobias decides to be an understudy for the Blue Man Group, and Lucille begins a torrid affair with her husband's twin brother, Oscar. Arrested Development Season 3 will begin airing this fall on FOX.

Editors Note
Note The Bluth family returns for another season of life after credit cards, in this revolutionary award-winning comedy. Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) is the voice of reason in the midst of a blue-blood clan of crazies who have become acclimated to the life of luxury after patriarch George Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor) earned a fortune in the tract-housing business. When George is arrested on charges of tax fraud, however, the family's assets are frozen, and the resulting life of relative poverty proves difficult in many unexpected ways. Matriarch Lucille (Jessica Walter) is an emotionally stunted alcoholic, who in season two hires a bounty hunter to find George Sr., who has run off to Mexico--maybe. The Bluth siblings include Lindsay (Portia de Rossi), a socialite whose multitude of causes serves to further her own social career; Gob (Will Arnett), a womanizing illusionist; and Buster, a mama's boy who spends his time pursuing a nebulous career as a grad student. Lindsay is married to Tobias (David Cross), an out-of-work actor and former doctor whose sexuality remains undefined. Michael, in addition to tending to the foibles of his siblings, spends much of his time trying to be a good dad to his earnest 14-year-old son, George Michael (Michael Cera). This collection contains all the episodes from the third season.

ReviewSource USA Today
Review As the last arrival in a so-far disappointing sitcom season, Arrested Development is heaven-sent for anyone who has longed for something, anything, a little outside the comedy norm. Well, actually, you'd better want to go pretty far outside the norm, because Arrested is certainly out there.
