The humor on Arrested Development is unlike the humor on any other show. The dysfunctional Bluth family is a television sitcom masterpiece, what with their general lack of respect for one another and society as a whole. It might sound hyperbolic, but the comedy gods shined a light on the writing and casting of this show, blessing the perfect ensemble cast with perfect timing, just the right amount of irony, and a healthy pinch of wit. It's a clever, self-referential brand of humor that is interested in playing the long game, consistently upping the ante so that when the punchline does come, it lands in the most satisfying way. Netflix revived the show for a fourth season in 2013 after it was very rudely canceled by Fox back in 2006, and although reception was somewhat divided, a fifth season, which will reportedly be set up like a murder mystery, is set to premiere in 2018.
