Home Movies is about a family, but Home Movies is not a family show. Its got kids in it, but it is aimed squarely at adults. The series spotlights third grader Brendon Small, a young filmmaker who writes, acts, directs and "co-executive produces" his "groundbreaking early work" along with friends Melissa (age 8) and Jason (age 7). The show also features Coach McGuirk, a youth soccer coach who hates soccer and isnt all that crazy about youths.
The third season of this half-hour cult-hit comedy towers as one of the greatest seasons in the history of television;. It includes the nearly flawless "Shore Leave" (which won an award at some festival), the fan favorite "Guitarmageddon," as well as the episodes "Storm Warning" and "Renaissance," which have some really funny parts.
Season Three represents an already great show truly hitting its stride. If youre a fan of the show, then this season is a "must see." And if youve never seen Home Movies, this is a perfect place to start. Then work your way backwards.

*RADIO INTERVIEW with Jon Benjamin and Loren Bouchard
While Home Movies is unquestionably funny and eclectic, the show also has a sweet side, which is best summed up in the season closer, "Coffins and Cradles." That this warm and affectionate aspect never comes across as treacly is both a credit to the show's creators, and another reason why fans have taken the show to their hearts and helped bring it back from a premature demise in its first season. Said followers get an amusing nod in the set's supplemental features; the short featurette "Some Home Movies Fans" sets to music some photos of the fans greeting the creators at a convention, while actor/co-writer Jon Benjamin's "A Featurette for People Who Don't Necessarily Like Home Movies" should charm longtime aficionados with amusing testimony from the likes of David Cross and Todd Barry. Viewers can also have fun with the "Decide Your Own Doom Interactive Game," which allows them to participate in an adventure (of sorts) based on "Renaissance." Finally, there are commentaries by Small and co-creator Loren Bouchard on seven episodes, as well as a lengthy radio interview with Bouchard and Benjamin. Though there's enough in this set to charm the diehard admirer and the first-time visitor to the Home Movies mini-verse, another season (the series' last) followed. --Paul Gaita

For the uninitiated, Home Movies is about a young boy, his camera, and his unquenchable dreams (and also his friends and his harried single mother and his slovenly soccer coach). Eight-year-old Brendon Small spends his spare time acting, directing, editing, and co-executive producing his own short films with his two school chums (It kind of makes you wonder about what you did when you were his age. I was hitting fireflies in my backyard with a wiffleball bat, mostly). The movies themselves, though usually ending up as subplots, are always memorable and prove to be one of the show's most defining elements.Read more ›
Really a fun show with timeless comedy. Very little is topical so the show is easily watchable forever. It's all about the characters and clever plots. I really wish there was more than four seasons.
Also, if you didn't catch it the real life Brendon Small posed in the April 2006 Playgirl with an article about his new project. Great pictures and a funny guy
SHORE LEAVE: This episode was funny at times, but fell flat at others. Still, a pretty good debut for a new season. 3.5/5
BREAKING UP IS HARD TO DO: Funny, smart, and Brendon's movie is good. 4/5
BAD INFLUENCES: The best episode of any cartoon ever made. One of the funniest things i have ever seen. 500,000/5
IMPROVING YOUR LIFE THROUGH IMPROV: Very funny, smart episode. 5/5
FOUR'S COMPANY: Great episode. McGuirk is expecially funny when he tries to put together a dinner with Erik, Paula, and Lynch. 5/5
RENAISSANCE: Everyone says this is the best episode of the season, but its not very good. 2.5/5
MY CHEATIN' HEART: Pretty funny. 4/5
GUITARMAGGEDON: Great episode. Its so cool how Brendon, Jason, and Melissa formed a band. 5/5
STORM WARNING: Has some very funny parts. Walter and Perry are awesome. 5/5
TIME TO PAY THE PRICE: It's time to pay the price.Read more ›
