Liz Lemon, head writer of the sketch comedy show "TGS with Tracy Jordan", must deal with an arrogant new boss and a crazy new star, all while trying to run a successful TV show without losing her mind.
Meet the wildly dysfunctional Bluth family. This family was once at the height of real estate development in Orange County, California. But when the family business - the Bluth Company - goes bust, they're suddenly found penniless with their assets frozen. They move into their last remaining asset - the model home left over from their latest housing tract. Their luxury vehicles are replaced with a reminder of the family's former wealth - the stair car that accompanied their private jet. The patriarch of the family is George Bluth - he's now in prison, and loving every minute of it. His wife Lucille and daughter Lindsay are spoiled socialites who can't handle getting kicked out of family restaurants. His son Buster is in his mid 30's and lives at home. His son George Oscar Bluth is a magician who started a group to get magicians to be taken seriously - and gets kicked out when his own tricks are revealed. Lindsay is married to a man named Tobias Funke, once a psychiatrist, who decides ... Written by
Two often-mentioned fictional restaurants on the show are "Miss Temple's," which is said to be particularly popular on Friday nights, and "Skip Church's," where characters often go for Sunday brunch. The names of the restaurants describe the activities of their regulars, since Jews who go out to dinner on Friday night instead of attending a synagogue ("miss temple," literally) and Christians who eat Sunday brunch instead of going to a religious service ("skip church," literally).

During the time George Sr spends in the attic, storage boxes in the background are marked with either "Tracy" or "Tracey." These are boxes of old clothes belonging to Michael's late wife. See more »
The Brits set me up. I heard nothing about Iraq.
Dad, we have a picture of you and Saddam Hussein.

I thought he was the Soup Nazi. I was just congratulating him on a great job.

First Season on DVD Disk 1 - Highly Recommended!!!
We enjoyed re-discovering the amazing antics of the Bluth family and preparing ourselves for the much anticipated second season. Arrested Development is my kind of situation comedy. No laugh tracks, thank you for respecting our intelligence! When it's funny, we know when to laugh. There are lots of surprises, special guests, great acting and excellent writing. Ron Howard's narration is a bonus. When someone asks me what it's like, I compare it to "Scrubs" but less mean spirited and more family values. I hope it represents the beginning of a trend toward great but gentle humor. I'm just about fed up with "reality" programs. Thank you very much. Keep up the good work.
