The first three seasons utilized two techniques for which there are probably some official names that I don’t know; the first is where they show you multiple plot threads that appear to be separate, which then converge in hilarious ways. My best off-the-top-of-my-head example is the episode when Lindsey goes to join the
climate war protest, only to discover she loves the attention of being hosed down in the cage. Later on, we see Lucille drive by this scene, and not knowing it’s her own daughter in the cage, calls her a whore and quips “Now there’s someone who could have used a good mother!”

The second technique is where they show us an event from one point of view, then later on the show that event again from a different character’s perspective, adding additional humor to the scenario. The best example is in the pilot episode when Lucille & Lindsey are complaining about the gay protestors, and Lindsey notes “Oh my god, I have the exact same blouse.” By the end of the episode, we realize it’s actually her husband on the boat, wearing what is in fact, Lindsey’s blouse. The first three seasons of AD utilize both of these techniques in spectacular fashion, and the reason they are so successful is that they all begin and end within the span of one episode.

By the end of each episode, any diverging plot threads have reconverged, and what we have seen of the events of the episode are “canon”; that is, we don’t come back later in the season to re-tell any of those scenes. Michael Bluth is one of the best straight men (using the comedy term here, not sexual orientation) ever written on TV. He grounds the hilarious antics of his family, helping us remember that these zany characters do exist in our world, and some of the most gut-busting moments of the show are Jason Bateman’s reactions to all the ridiculousness around him, more so than the ridiculousness itself.
