Did You Know?


Richard Belzer makes his second appearance on the show (he was briefly seen as a guest star in episode 3.9, Arrested Development: S.O.B.s (2006)), this time as "Professor" Munch, who is in fact part of a police sting operation. On both Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999) and Homicide: Life on the Street (1993) he portrays Det. John Munch. In light of the appearance in "S.O.B.s" as himself, it's unclear if he is appearing as "himself" or Munch. See more »

Arrested Development

Arrested Development is another take on dysfunctional family; created by Mitchell Hurwitz, with lots of twists and turns and mystery that helps kick the series into another level and stand alone. The narration by Ron Howard that guides the viewers is actually a smarter concept that it actually seems, since the makers doesn't feel the need to explain the situation and momentum through cheesy and additional dialogues; a slick move.

It is short on technical aspects like cinematography, background score and art design although the camera work is plausible and is shot beautifully with pleasing, light and breezy environment.

The writing is strong in terms of the material offered especially since it doesn't feel the urge to push boundaries just to crack a smile, and instead focuses on the irony of it and lets it flow fluently with well barred structure. The amusing concept, enfolding tricks, gripping screenplay, parallel sub-plots that are well edited which later merges in brilliantly are some of the high points of the series.

There is also a lot of going on in mere 20 minutes for the audience to let it sink in which may seem overstuffed at times but it does the work which is to keep the audience tangled into it. The characters are more mature and pragmatic than the audience usually gets in a sitcom where they might not be lovable or even likable at times, but their humane-ness keeps the viewers rooting for them.

The performance is somewhat fragile in here since the protagonist Jason Bateman is in his A game but unfortunately isn't supported to that extent by its supporting cast (Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Portia de Rossi and David Cross).

Season 03

The third act is actually more of a final act and hence the makers did put all the eggs in the basket, which delivers this ultimate culmination of plot revelations, dramatic sequences, morale conflicts and hilarious but more importantly non-sketchy sequences, claiming once again their throne which they deserve to be sat upon.

Exit Strategy

Will Arnett's track is hilarious as always but in here stands alone than any of his acts, since it gives him a wider range and newer approach and area to pitch in along with an interesting revelation in Cera And Alia's love track.
