Known about this show for a while, but never got around to watching this, and my god what a mistake that was. This show is freakin amazing. Started watching on IFC in like the middle of the second season and thought it was funny, so i went onto Netflix and watched the entire series in 2 days.

Anyone else seen this?

"Now the story of a wealthy family who lost everything, and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together. It's Arrested Development."
In a nut shell, that's it, but there's lots of twists and turns in the series despite there being only like <50 episodes.
Its sorta document style (like The Office) but its a sitcom (with no annoying laugh track Very Happy). The head of the company/family (George Sr.) goes to jail for treason, and so one of his sons (Michael) becomes head of the family/company to try and keep everything/one together. The family is super dysfunctional, and so there's tons of problems within the family (not to mention the company falling apart) like sibling rivalry, manipulation, and even incest (which isn't as gross as it sounds).
The plot moves pretty fast so its kinda hard to keep up if you don't pay attention, though the omniscient narrator helps a bit. There's a shit load of twist and turns and the scarcity of episodes means you can't really miss any episodes or you'll be lost, but its worth it because of how hilarious and well thought out it is.

Very Happy The first episode starts off kinda slow (like most pilots) but then it all takes off soon after. Hope you like it
