Revisiting: 'Arrested Development' - via Michigandaily
“Now the story of a wealthy family who lost everything, and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together.” This is the simple statement that introduces every episode of “Arrested Development” over cheery musical tones. These 23 words manage to tell you everything, and nothing, that the show is about. Quite possibly one of the most bizarre television shows of the past two decades, “Arrested Development” is a cult classic that critics love, fans worship and everyone questions a little bit.

The opposite is true of East Africa. The agriculture sector is dominant, the manufacturing sector is stunted and produces basic goods and the service sector is not so sophisticated either. This explains the difference in the incomes and welfare of the people of East Africa and South Korea.

All the problems that plagued the fourth season are here: The plot is far too complicated, the actors barely share any scenes together, the jokes are lame and forced, and nobody seems to want to be a part of this. This time around only Portia De Rossi seems to be trying to rise above the lukewarm writing, while everyone else seems to be want to <...> - by Pop Culture Thoughts [Julien Houle] - Season 5
As ever, the sight of Michael dramatically storming out on his family, only to inevitably return, remains the Sisyphean struggle that seems to hold the Bluths, like the series, together.

At its best, the series continues to deftly skewer the interpersonal dynamics of a hilariously dysfunctional family. Though <...> - by Slant Magazine - Season 5 [Michael Haigis]
Despite my downbeat mood, an element of Arrested Development that I have always enjoyed since its birth is the family’s need to feel important, which continues in season 5 and one that continues to be glaringly obvious due to Michael’s calamitous ways of resisting such status. The whole concept of a rich family falling from a comforting empire, scouring the town’s floor for crumbs to cling onto a status that no-one cares about, is one that I have always admired in each season.
