In our profile of Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, we lamented the lack of Jewish sitcom families. We've made a huge mistake.
How could we forget the Bluths of "Arrested Development"! And we're not just talking about George Sr.'s discovery of Judaism in jail. The Bluths were specifically designed to be Jewish (well, half Jewish) by the series creator, Mitchell Hurwitz (Jew himself, of course). Let him explain:
The name Bluth... my wife was the one saying we've got to find a name that's Jewish but not too Jewish, 'cause you want to have that freedom comedically.
Of course, with all the strange relationships in that family, not everyone is exactly a Jew. So let's go through each Bluth and figure out how Jewish they are!
And, yes, we know there is an episode where George Sr. finds Christianity. Talk about huge mistakes...
