  • A climax to end the first season

    "Let 'em Eat Cake" ends the first season of arrested development and it definately ends on a massive high.

    The focus of episode is on Michael finding out that George Sr has committed some "light" treason. It was mentioned earlier in the season, but its not really addressed until this episode.

    Michael then is all set to be rid of his messed up family for good, but George Michael convinces him to stay.

    Although their plot is of little significance Annyang and Buster's feud is quite entertaining.

    The presence of Kitty is a let down for me I just don't find her character appealing in any sort of way.

    I reall felt genuinely sorry for Gob in this episode. He was trying to help out his family (albeit in a sick and twisted sort of way) but he was ignored constantly.

    A superb end to a brilliant season!
