Storyline

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 halo1k

Trivia

In Season 3, the Bluths' new lawyer, Bob Loblaw (played by Scott Baio), is brought in to replace their usual lawyer, Barry Zuckercorn (played by Henry Winkler). Loblaw proudly states this is not the first time he has been called on to replace Zuckercorn, a nod to the TV series Happy Days (1974-1984), where Baio was added to the cast in the role of Chachi to supplement Winkler's teen idol status as Fonzie. Winkler was getting older at the time, and the producers of Happy Days (1974-1984) wanted a younger cool character on the show. The narrator, Ron Howard, also starred in Happy Days (1974-1984) alongside Winkler and Baio. See more »

Goofs

Funniest Show in Television- Brilliant!!
28 March 2004 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

Annyong (Hello)! I absolutely love this show and so will you! If you haven't seen it- give it a second week and you will be laughing at all the subtle things and be caught up on the storylines. I usually tape it and watch it a second time with friends so I can catch the things that I missed the first time around or just because I like to watch it again! Yes, that is Ron Howard narrating the show. In an early episode the did make an Opie reference and last week Henry Winkler did a trademark Fonzie move in front of a mirror when they were combing hair. Don't let FOX cancel another brilliant show! P.S. Annyong is the Korean boy that Lucille adopted because Buster would not eat his cottage cheese (it might be one of those had to be there to understand)! His name really is not Annyong- Annyong means Hello in Korean!
