Amazon Gold Box Deal: Arrested Development (The Series) $26.99

Today only you can get the Arrested Development: The Complete Series (Seasons 1-3 Bundle) [1] for $26.99.

Winner of the Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy its first year out, Arrested Development is the kind of sitcom that gives you hope for television. A mockumentary-style exploration of the beleaguered Bluth family, it’s one of those idiosyncratic shows that doesn’t rely on a laugh track or a studio audience; it’s shot more like a TV drama, albeit with an omniscient narrator (executive producer Ron Howard) overseeing the proceedings. Holding the Bluths together just barely is son Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman), the only normal guy in a family that’s chock full of nuts. Hardworking and sensible, Michael’s certain he’s going to be given control of his family’s Enron-style corporation upon the retirement of his father (Jeffrey Tambor). The fact that he’s passed over instead for his mother (Jessica Walter) is only a blip when compared to his father’s immediate arrest for dubious accounting practices, and the resulting freeze on the family’s previously limitless wealth.

This deal should last all day (9/7) but you never know with Amazon- they change prices at the blink of an eye!
