Arrested Development 3rd Series
I’ve just had the pleasure of watching the final series of Arrested Development (I don’t have SKY). I’ve mentioned the previous series of this fantastic sitcom before and the third series doesn’t disappoint. It picks up where the last one left with Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) searching for his runaway father, George Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor) and GOB (George Oscar Bluth II; pronounced “Jobe”) played by Will Arnett gets an invitation to a father/son reunion outing, and believes it to be George Sr. trying to contact him.
There are new characters, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Charlize Theron, and Amy Poehler play recurring characters, but my favourite purely for his character name is Scott Baio as attorney Bob Loblaw (pronounced, “Ba blah blah”), a replacement for Barry Zuckerkorn (Henry Winkler), in part, because he “skews younger” (an allusion to Baio’s “Happy Days” character “Chachi,” who was brought in to inject youth into the aging Winkler’s “Fonzie”). There is also a strange James Bondy type flavour in the early episodes.
For the best experience you really should watch these shows in batches as one show rolls straight into the next. Boo Hoo that this is the last series.
