Liz Lemon, head writer of the sketch comedy show "TGS with Tracy Jordan", must deal with an arrogant new boss and a crazy new star, all while trying to run a successful television show without losing her mind.
Meet the wildly dysfunctional Bluth family. 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 ...Written by
Season four was not shot chronologically. The actors and actresses were not available through the whole season, so most of their scenes and plots were shot following each other, and then edited to fit the new structure, with which Mitchell Hurwitz had come up. See more »
During the time George Sr spends in the attic, storage boxes in the background are marked with either "Tracy" or "Tracey." These are boxes of old clothes belonging to Michael's late wife. See more »
The first three seasons which originally aired on Fox from 2003 to 2006 were truly a landmark for TV entrainment and for comedy in general. They set the bar high for everything that followed. The 4th and 5th seasons (which were the product of a 2013 Netflix reboot) however, aren't even in the same even same league. It's not that they're unfunny, but it just seems like by now, the creators of the show are just capitalizing on what made the first three seasons so great without putting an effort to develop the humor and take it further. An increasing portion of the newest episodes is taken up by flashbacks accompanied by Ron's voiceover to explain things, or to fill the gaps in narrative, and it's just too much. Moreover, because of the way the latest season is written (5th as of the time of writing), it always seems like everything that's happening in the show is supposed to lead towards something big that's going to unfold in the season finale, which weakens the viewing experience, making it impossible for any single episode to stand on each own.
I'm still giving the series a 10.. pretending the reboot never happened.
