The fourth and final season of this half-hour cult hit comedy contains some of its most memorable episodes - "Camp," guest-starring They Might Be Giants as crappy music camp counselors, Brendon, Jason and Melissas rock-opera opus/debacle "The Wizards Baker" and Brendon's visit to the dark side in the classic "Those Bitches Tried To Cheat Me." The only thing wrong with Home Movies is that there aren't any more to watch.
Contains all 13 episodes of Season Four the last 13 episodes ever!
Bonus Music CD - 52 Tracks - The Best Songs From All Four Seasons
Fan Commentaries by The Shins, Modest Mouse and the staff of The Onion
Many of the episodes concern Brendon's relentless desire to direct films and, at least in one case, theatre. His off-and-on ambivalence about collaborating in these endeavors with best friends Jason (H. Jon Benjamin) and Melissa (Melissa Bardin Galsky) creates some marvelous tensions, such as a very funny story in which Brendon reluctantly acquiesces to his pals' enthusiasm to produce an obviously doomed movie called "Wizird's Baker" (the misspelling is Jason's fault). While Melissa and Jason pound the pavement to raise funds for the production, Brendon dodges the project by immersing himself in a half-baked, outdoors-y outfit called the Skunk Scouts. His sudden embrace of boyhood pleasures--carving wood, earning merit badges--is painfully sweet in light of his guilt over sabotaging his friends' dream. In another superb episode, Brendon mounts a disastrous, 1950s-themed musical called "Bye, Bye Greasy" at school, pressing the increasingly degenerate Coach McGuirk (Benjamin again) into playing a teen rebel and nudging a disillusioned Jason and Melissa toward bland, supporting roles. On the other hand, the trio of friends sometimes cooperate beautifully: organizing, for instance, a special revenge against sadistic camp counselors in the season premiere. (Meanwhile, McGuirk is in hiding from a touchy-feely men's group called "Crywalkers.") There are some fabulous special features in this set, including a bonus music CD with 52 songs from all four seasons, 22 commentaries from the cast, crew, and special guests (including the Shins and Modest Mouse), and an "Audio Outtakes Jukebox." --Tom Keogh

One of the better animation series, aimed at maturer audiences. Great characters and great story lines.
If H Jon Benjamin is voicing a character, you know it has to be good. Read more

Not many know about this funny show with horrible animation. Reminded me of the early south park episodes, love it! Coach McGurk is too funny!Published 14 months ago by Kelli
The combo of iffy computer animation, sarcasm and a hint of inappropriateness make this a winner every time. Every. Time.Published 14 months ago by Pam S.
I didn't care for this and wasn't that entertaining. I had to watch too many weak movies to get to a fair one.Published 16 months ago by Lionsd2
This is such a funny show and so real to life. The relationship between Brandon and Coach McGuirk is so well blended.Published 16 months ago by Ken

Those guys are inexplicably included on the commentary for the episode titled "Camp". They come across as total boobs who may or may not have even seen the show before. This is especially insulting since this episode featured the voices and music of They Might Be Giants, and the... Read More
