I think Arrested Development's third season was its best, which is definitely saying something. This season, which at the time was the final season, was an enjoyable farewell to the Bluth family. There were considerably more running jokes and everything that the first two seasons had been building became even better.
While this season did nearly cross a very fine line between funny and offensive, it remains hilarious nonetheless. Season three introduced us to such characters as the bizarrely eccentric Rita Leeds (Charlize Theron), the difficult-to-pronounce Bob Loblaw (Scott Baio), and the hilariously monotone Larry the Surrogate (Bob Einstein). We also were introduced to GOB's (Will Arnett) extremely racist hand puppet Franklin, which allowed Arnett to really shine this season.
The best moments, of course, occurred in the (then) series finale, where the puppet master of the Bluth family was revealed and Michael (Jason Bateman) finally made his decision about whether or not to leave the family behind. I'm so glad Netflix picked this show up for more seasons, as it is one of the funniest pieces of television history I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy.
