  Blockbuster Online - Arrested Development [TV Series]
It is virtually impossible to chronicle all of the series' off-the-wall dialogue and surrealistic sight gags; suffice to say that the decision to approach the material in a hand-held "documentary" fashion, and to dispense with the use of a laugh track, only served to emphasize the million and one absurdities.
The consistency of the series' lofty quality can be attributed to the fact that its creator, Mitchell Hurwitz (a veteran of such sitcoms as The Golden Girls and The John Larroquette Show), devoted every ounce of his energy to Arrested Development, refusing to accept any other projects throughout the show's run.
Arguably too smart for the room, Arrested Development never got the huge audience it deserved, though the devotion of its fans and its multitude of industry awards all but shamed Fox into renewing the series beyond its first and second season.

 Robson Arms: The Complete First Season - PopMatters Television Review
While the Canadian series is not, strictly speaking, a “family” comedy, the residents do form a dysfunctional family of sorts.
As on Arrested Development, the characters in the apartment building are all struggling with questions of identity and belonging and the challenges of being closely bound to others not of your own choosing (and sometimes even with those that you have chosen).
With its third-person narration and focus on the sordid secrets and desires of the Bluths, Arrested Development amped-up the inherently voyeuristic nature of family drama and comedy.

 R.I.P., 'Arrested Development' -- critics' fave not given room to grow
"Arrested Development," the critically praised but low-rated Fox show that won an Emmy for outstanding comedy series, as well as Emmys for writing, will not be resurrected on Showtime as rumors circulating for months have suggested.
Narrated by Ron Howard (whose company produced the series), "Arrested Development" had a faux-documentary, cinema verite style that traced the sorry path of the Bluths from the glory days of their home development company to their cash-strapped existence thanks to a government fraud bust.
For a series that never attained more than cult status, "Arrested Development" set off one of the strangest behind-the-scenes bidding wars when it was clear Fox had given up on it.

 Crimson Celluloid :: Resident DVDvil :: Arrested Development: Season 3
“Arrested Development” was one of those shows that was named one of TV Guide’s “Shows you should be watching.” This is generally the death knell for any series, as it means that the show just isn’t getting the ratings that it might deserve.
Either the series was really as good as TV Guide said and the network recognized this in time to save it (the more unlikely of scenarios), or the show was terrible and the network recognized this in time to save it (which seems more reasonable by Fox’s standards).
For a series that almost didn’t make it to a full first season and barely made it through a third, Fox really went out of their way to make sure that this DVD release was worthwhile.

Category:Regular cast of Arrested Development (or similar better-named cat) would be acceptable in my opinion.
The articles on the regular cast will all presumably link to Arrested Development (TV series) which is the perfect place to list the regular cast, a category for regular cast will just duplicate content that can be held in the article on the TV show.
Arrested Development is on the border of this, but as long as the work's already been done, we might as well keep it.

 'The Wire' and 'Arrested Development' -- too smart to make it?
But instead, it's as if "Arrested Development" has been banished to some dank promotional hole, as if it had slaughtered the cast of "North Shore" and Fox is protecting it from extradition.
When "Arrested Development" does get promoted, it's usually the tail end of a big "Simpsons'' push, and the material used is, invariably and mysteriously, none of the funny jokes.
People say the comedy in "Arrested Development" is too self-referential or obscure, that it doesn't have a laugh track to help them and is too fast-paced verbally and too challenging visually (it's easy to miss those added-value puns).

Whether the weightier issues of a neglectful mother using her daughter to try and commit adultery with a teenager or the tacky and gross jokes about a photograph of a scrotum, Arrested Development is not a show for families to watch together.

 Die-hard 'Arrested Development' fans already feeling sting of loss
This edition of the TV 101 Q & A got a late rush of letters all about the alleged cancellation of the best sitcom on television -- in fact, one of the best series period -- "Arrested Development" on Fox.
A: It happened primarily because "Arrested Development" and freshman sitcom "Kitchen Confidential" -- also benched -- were dragging down the ratings for what amounts to the network's only bright spot, "Prison Break." Fox wanted to keep "Prison Break" surging ahead, and the lead-in hour with those two comedies was, essentially, costing it viewers.
"Arrested Development" would be a lovely addition to HBO, but the pay cable channel has said it will take no one's "sloppy seconds." Given the poor ratings and expensive per-episode price tag, no network or basic cable channel is likely to make a play for it.
