My favorite episode of the series!!!
11 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

I believe this is the best episode of "Arrested Development". It has everything that Arrested needs; an over-the-top plot, great writing, and a wonderful way for the characters to clash. It is George Sr. at his most manipulative, Michael and Gob at their most bickering, and Buster...at his most "busterish personality" (lol). it also has the best plot with j walter weatherman, who i thought was the funniest recurring character on the show. this episode also has the brilliant pace; it's practically "the perfect episode". Arrested, despite being cancelled due to terrible advertising/marketing, truly is a wonderful series and the only good comedy to air this entire century. And I believe that after the film comes out, it will become enough of a box office hit to signal the re-airing of the television series. And when that happens, I think "Making A Stand" will truly become a classic episode. Highly Recommended for both Arrested fans and those interested in being introduced to the show!!!
