My Son, The BluthPublished by Toronto Mike on January 1, 2008 @ 15:35 in Family
I borrowed every season of "Arrested Development" on DVD and I'm making my way from the pilot to the finale. I've seen every episode at least once before but it's just as good the second, third or fourth time through. The cast and writing is deliciously funny.
One character on "Arrested Development" reminds me a great deal of my son. George Michael Bluth and James share an eerily similar personality. They're both sweet, a little naive and genuinely kind. They're both eager to please and try awfully hard to be cooler than they naturally are. Even George Michael's mannerisms and vocal styling reminds me of James'.
Taryn and I watch these episodes together and feel the same way. When the most likable character reminds you of your kids, it makes an amazing series that much better.
