The plot of Arrested Development revolves around the members of the Bluth family, who lead extravagant lifestyles, and are also often drawn into interactions with incestuous undertones. At the center of the show is Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman), the show's straight man, who strives to do the right thing and keep his family together, despite their materialism, selfishness, and manipulative naturesWell, it will be difficult to argue convincingly that the show's title is misleading...
The first question to ask is whether watching this show (or engaging in any other activity) helps us to do or to develop our ability to do that for which we were created: to know, love, and serve God? Or whether it occupies our time,keeping us from doing that for which we were created? Does out entertainment inspire us to live a more holy life, or does it glorify behavior that is clearly opposed to the Christian lifestyle?
When we repeatedly expose ourselves to objectionable behaviors, over time we gradually become desensitized and what was objectionable begins to appear to be normal. Just look at the what has passed for entertainment, especially in TV and films, for the past 70 years and you can see how Hollywood has helped lead the way, step-by-small-step, to the abyss of immorality that now threatens to engulf much of civilization.
