Arrested Development is a character-driven American comedy television series, which ran from November 2, 2003 to February 10, 2006, and then was resurrected by Netflix. It is about a formerly wealthy and habitually dysfunctional family. The series is presented in a fashion reminiscent of documentary film/cinema verite, with omniscient narration (by Ron Howard), archival photographs, and historic footage.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

While I expect my shows to "Do Better", I'm also a bit of a sucker for stoner/ dudebro comedy at times. Arrested Development makes good use of unusual narrative formats and is definitely not afraid to experiment. Wacky, zany, and bizarre are all good words that can be used to describe it. Unfortunately, the problematic actions of stars like Jeffrey Tambour off screen make it difficult to support this show - more so when the cast and crew don't seem to be very interested in condemning such actions.
