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
The cast was going to do a movie, to follow up the story after FOX cancelled the season. However, it was delayed several times. Eventually, the producers, actors, and actresses noted that the gap between the show and the movie was so long, that catching the audience up on the main character's antics between season three and the movie, would eat up a significant amount of the proposed movie's run time. Thus, they opted to film a fourth season to fulfill this purpose. See more »
In several episodes, you can see flowers and trees outside the doors and windows of the model home; but in the shots of the exterior of the home, it is on a dirt plot, surrounded by nothing. See more »
The program has changed my life. And I have a sponsor now.
I can't tell you who he is, but let's just say... that he was on... "Night Court."
Well, you look great...
...I can tell you who it's NOT. It's not Bull. It's not Harry Anderson.
I got it...
...and he's white.
I know who it is.

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.
