There are no words that accurately describe this series. Sure, there are some that come close, such as well written, well acted, ridiculous, crazy, unpredictable, and hilarious, but none of them have a form as extreme as Arrested Development deserves. This show tells "The story of a wealthy family (the Bluths) who lost everything (when the patriarch, Oscar was found to be using company money for personal purchases and sent to jail) and the one son (Michael) who had no choice but to keep them (Lucille, the matriarch, Lindsey, Michael's twin sister, her husband, Tobias, their daughter, Maeby, GOB, Michael and Lindsey's older brother, and George Michael, Michael's son) together." This is often near the top of the "Best TV Show" lists and all variants of them for good reason. However, this isn't something to watch in front of the young ones. This show can be very raunchy at times (Especially GOB, the magician older brother. In the first episode, when someone calls his magic a magic trick, he says, "A trick is something a whore does for money," in front of the children who were watching his act.), there is a lot of drinking and some drug abuse(Lucille is an alcoholic and Oscar, George's twin does pot offscreen), and everyone except for Michael and George Michael, his son, have no idea how to work and everyone except George Michael can be incredibly unlikeable. However, no matter how awful they can be, they're a family and they stick together. I would like to take these last few sentences to explain a little misunderstanding. This is not, I repeat, NOT rated TV-MA (except maybe season 4, the Netflix season which I haven't seen yet. Or the version with the sensors removed that's only on Netflix as well). The first season and parts of the second season are rated TV-PG, while parts of season 2 and all of season 3 are TV-14. Everyone should watch this show, even if you have to wait a few years until it's OK for you.
