Arrested Development (Hulu)
Synopsis: 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. Bereft of money, and even less family love, the Bluths have to band together in their moment of need–not easy when everyone’s looking out for number 1. In addition to his scabrous parents, Michael has to contend with his lothario older brother (Will Arnett), his basically useless younger brother (Tony Hale), his greedy twin sister (Portia DeRossi), and her sexually ambiguous husband (David Cross). Michael’s only comrade in sanity is his son George Michael (Michael Cera), but then again, the teenage boy harbors a secret crush on his cousin (Alia Shawkat).
Synopsis: Anna Faris and Emmy® winner Allison Janney star in a comedy from Chuck Lorre (The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, Mike & Molly). Anna Faris plays Christy, a single mom whose newly found sobriety has given her the ability to see her life clearly … and she does not like the view. Now she must try to untangle years of reckless decisions in order to make a better life for her and her kids. But she discovers that just because you want to be a better person doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy. Everywhere she looks there are challenges: She is trying to stop drinking in wine country, have a healthy romance with her unavailable boss, raise her young son to be a good man despite his father’s influence, convince her troubled teenage daughter to make better choices than she did, and — perhaps the most difficult task — forgive her estranged mother, Bonnie (Janney), for not giving her any of the tools she needed to handle life in the first place
