Best episode?
13 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is my pick for best episode, partly because it deserves it and partly because I wanted a symbolic favourite (there are so many good episodes to choose from). Afternoon Delight is the second season's Christmas episode, and centres on the Bluth Company's office party. This allows for each of our main Bluth characters to have odd adventures running separately but eventually coming together. GOB is running a business he is completely unfamiliar with and is cracking under the stress; Michael and Maeby go the party together; Buster finds a new game; Lucille goes crazy alone.

Most classic elements of Arrested Development are here: Michael's jealousy that his son spends more time with his girlfriend Ann than him, GOB being treated as a loser, an incest joke (Michael and Maeby sing a song and it's too late when they realize the song is sexual), Tobias' Blue Man, and Maeby's isolation. It's all funny stuff, and hey, it's a party.
