Arrested Development - Season 2

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
Arrested Development went into its second season on shaky ground: Despite its 2004 Emmy win for Best Comedy in Season 1, the series seemed close to cancellation as FOX reduced its order for episodes from the usual 23 to only 18 during Season 2. But fans that appreciated the zany writing style and bizarre cast of characters launched a campaign to encourage the network not to give up on the quirky show. Luckily, Season 2 didn't ...

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
Arrested Development went into its second season on shaky ground: Despite its 2004 Emmy win for Best Comedy in Season 1, the series seemed close to cancellation as FOX reduced its order for episodes from the usual 23 to only 18 during Season 2. But fans that appreciated the zany writing style and bizarre cast of characters launched a campaign to encourage the network not to give up on the quirky show. Luckily, Season 2 didn't become Arrested Development's last, but it may certainly be the funniest. Returning once again is the Bluth clan: George Sr. Jeffrey Tambor, the head of the family, who is on the run from prison; Lucille Jessica Walter, the matriarch with a penchant for alcohol; eldest son G.O.B. Will Arnett, a failed magician; Michael Jason Bateman the only levelheaded member of the group, who's trying to rebuild the family business; his son, George-Michael the wonderful Michael Cera; Michael's twin, Lindsay Portia de Rossi, an aimless socialite, who, along with her husband, Tobias David Cross, and daughter, Maeby Alia Shawkat, still live at home; and weird youngest son Buster Tony Hale. This season George Sr.'s twin brother, Oscar Tambor, shacks up with Lucille; both G.O.B. and Buster fall for Lucille 2 guest star Liza Minnelli in "Queen for a Day"; Buster accidentally enlists in the army and only gets out of it when his hand is bitten off by a seal in "Hand to God"; George Sr. fakes his death and hides out in the attic of a model home in "Good Grief"; George-Michael almost gets "pre-pre-engaged" to girlfriend Ann Mae Whitman in "Meet the Veals"; and Ben Stiller guest-stars as famed magician Tony Wonder with a W-shaped goatee! in "Sword of Destiny." Every single episode of the season is laugh-out-loud funny -- an amazing feat -- but the absolute best is "Motherboy XXX," in which Lucille tries to get her beloved Buster to go with her to the annual mother-son dinner dance, with hilarious results.

    Warning: You Will Get Hooked On This Show

    This is a very special type of comedy show that you won't find anywhere else. It's sort of like The Neverending Story of TV shows. Just when you think things are starting to fall into place something really crazy and unexpected happens. Genius actors and actresses, as well as some fantastic guest stars. My only recommendation is that you start at Season 1 so as to better understand the many inside jokes there are to be found. Good Grief is one of the best episodes (in my opinion)!

    Best ever.

    So smart. Is that the problem? Do stupid people dislike watching intelligent things? Brilliant writing and superior acting. This is the funniest show on television today or any other day. When it does get cancelled, which is always possible, I will feel warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I have them all with me on DVD to treasure forever.

    You must check out this show!!

    This show is so clever and funny. I have watched season 1 several times, and I always catch a new joke or something that I have missed during my previous viewings. That is the mark of a great show in my opinion. Trust me, you will love this show.

    Best humor all around!!!

    From the first epesode to the current 3rd season you get to know the characters, yet they are still unpredictable in their own nuerotic ways. I can't believe more people aren't watching this show on TV. I haven't heard of anyone who doesn't like this sitcom.

    TV's Best Comedy......... EVER

    This show just gets better and better. Yes, it's smart. Yes, it's clever. But most importantly, it is FUNNY. Watch it a second time, and it is even FUNNIER! But don't be intimidated. If you think The Simpsons or Seinfeld are funny shows, then this is a show that you will come to treasure. You know how there are a million little "freeze-frame" jokes on The Simpsons, or little details in the background that you might not catch on the first viewing? Well, on Arrested Development, these little background jokes build on one another, to the point where a joke that was set-up in the first episode gets paid off two seasons later. But fear not: there are more big laughs on first viewing than most sitcoms have in an entire year. If you love comedy, you will love Arrested Development.

    Why dont more people watch this ?!?!

    I discovered this series at the end of the 2nd season & rented the videos from the beginning of season 1 & just finished season 2... so glad we have season 3 on TV now! Going to order the DVDs for Christmas so we can watch it again as there are so many funny moments & classic writing... We often don't believe what we have just seen & heard!

    So much laughter...

    We are so excited to have the second season coming out on DVD. We started with this show via the first season's DVD this past New Year's Eve and am hooked. We are currently watching the second season in reruns and am looking forward to having it on DVD to watch at our leisure. I haven't watched a show where there is so much laughter to be found anew every time you watch it. There's always something missed the first time.
