This family was once at the height of real estate development in Orange County, California. But when the family business – the Bluth Company – goes bust, they’re suddenly found penniless with their assets frozen. They move into their last remaining asset – the model home left over from their latest housing tract. Their luxury vehicles are replaced with a reminder of the family’s former wealth – the stair car that accompanied their private jet. The patriarch of the family is George Bluth – he’s now in prison, and loving every minute of it. His wife Lucille and daughter Lindsay are spoiled socialites who can’t handle getting kicked out of family restaurants. His son Buster is in his mid 30’s and lives at home. His son George Oscar Bluth is a magician who started a group to get magicians to be taken seriously – and gets kicked out when his own tricks are revealed. Lindsay is married to a man named Tobias Funke, once a psychiatrist, who decides to become an actor. The only sane member of the family – Michael Bluth, along with his son George Michael, want nothing to do with the family business. But one bizarre circumstance after another keeps Michael and George Michael from leaving their eccentric family. Plot: The story of a wealthy family that lost everything, and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together.

Probably the best show of the 2003 season, and the best new comedy in years. It’s very hard to describe, since the comedy is entirely character-based, not plot- or wisecrack-based.
Basically, it’s the story of the Bluth family, developers who are in bankruptcy with the father in prison for fraud. One son, Michael, tries to be responsible and keep things going, while the rest of the group is entirely self-centered and can’t seem to focus on the fact they are broke and in disgrace.
The various family members go off in various directions: George (GOB) fancies himself a magician, Buster is a momma’s boy, Lindsay goes off supporting odd causes, Lindsay’s husband Tobias fancies himself an actor. It’s a show you need to watch closely, but the laughs are all over the place, from unexpected directions.
*Note: My review refers ONLY to the original series (seasons 1-3).
What can I say ? This is a flawless and brilliant character-based gem of a comedy. The show’s premise (how rich people would cope if they lost all their money) is ground for massive potential, and the show’s creators do not disappoint. This show is also in a sense prophetic as it cleverly anticipated the boom of reality-TV, being shot in brilliantly amateurish fashion.
The story revolves around the super-wealthy Bluth family, rendered penniless after the patriarch is jailed for embezzlement. The one ‘normal’ son, Michael, tries to salvage his eccentric family as they get into blunder after blunder. This includes his elder brother Gob (a ‘magician’), younger brother Buster (an ‘academic’), twin sister Lindsay (an ‘activist’), brother in law Tobias (an ‘actor’), niece Maeby (a slacker), mother Lucille (sharp-tongued socialite) and son George Michael (an innocent).
The show is brilliant on so many levels, and the writing is incredibly smart. The show is highly quotable, and throughout its original 3 series never lost momentum. The beauty of this show is definitely the delusional characters. They all clearly suffer from a delusion of still being rich, and each character has a particular quirk. Even the supporting characters are brilliant (nods to Liza Minelli as Lucille Ostero, Henry Winkler as Barry Zuckercorn, Julia- Louis Dreyfuss as Maggie Lieser, and Ben Stiller as Tony Wonder).
Brilliant brilliant show, but I advise against watching Netflix’s 2013 4th season. The 2003-6 run was epic.
