Product Description

"One of the funniest sitcoms anywhere on television." – Time

Home Movies is about a family, but Home Movies is not a family show. It’s 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 isn’t 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 you’re a fan of the show, then this season is a "must see." And if you’ve never seen Home Movies, this is a perfect place to start. Then work your way backwards.

Contains all 13 episodes of Season Three

Episode #301 "Shore Leave"
Episode #302 "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do"

*RADIO INTERVIEW with Jon Benjamin and Loren Bouchard


Critics and fans alike have described the third season of Home Movies as the animated series' finest moments, and now viewers that haven't immersed themselves in the wry and offbeat world of 8-year-old Brendon Small and his friends will get a chance to see for themselves with this three-disc set. Part of the reason for the season's high marks among admirers is the readjustment of its focus to rest squarely on the squiggly shoulders of Brendon (voiced by series co-creator Brendon Small) and his pals Melissa (Melissa Bardin Galsky) and Jason (writer Jon Benjamin) as they navigate the hazards of parents, adults (like the always odd Coach McGuirk), and school itself, and capture it all in their films. The shift allows for more development of these three unique characters, and in turn, their unique perspective sharpens the humor in the bizarre circumstances they often find themselves in, like a berserk Renaissance faire (the much-lauded "Renaissance"), detention hall ("Time to Pay the Price"), and in the path of an oncoming storm ("Storm Warning").

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

By Michael Kluge on November 4, 2005
Format: DVD
Sure it's nearly bereft of fanfare and staggering production values, yet Home Movies stands as one of the most endearing and clever creations ever to grace the small screen. It's a show that never takes itself too seriously or blows itself up to Hurculean proportions, and yet manages to exhude sincerity and meaning at almost every turn. Unlike most of the Adult Swim fodder, Home Movies actually develops coherent plots, or is at least patient enough to focus on a common theme or motif, and has a sense of humor more akin to the uneasy awkwardness of Seinfeld and Arrested Development, with characters stammering over each other and launching into embarassing (yet hillarious) tirades that go nowhere. The kids behave like adults and the adults are inept and childish, if well-meaning. Charming, minimalist and with a real heart, but above all wickedly funny, this is a real treasure, no matter what the price...

Back in the dorms at college, I could expect there to be a knock on my door every night at around 10:50. It would be one of my neighbors trying to corral everyone to watch Cartoon Network's Adult Swim lineup on the lounge TV. I think the reason why we always had to all watch it simultaneously was because that way no one could feasibly complain about the noise from all of the raucous laughter. Anyway, I enjoyed some of it although the shows that wrung humor from random nonsense grated on my nerves after a while. The only show that I found on Adult Swim that made me return to it outside of our nightly groupthink was Home Movies. It was a quieter show, a more thoughtful show, the kind of show that wouldn't end an episode with a character being hacked to pieces with a chainsaw for no reason unlike all the other shows that followed it on the schedule. Since then, I have been happily snapping up the well-produced DVD box sets, and I really must talk about the third season set which is my personal favorite.

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.

One of my absolute favorite shows, I had to buy this set. This season contains some of my favorite episodes and characters. Everyone is at their best in this set and I'm glad I bought it. They make very creative use of commmentary tracks to do letter responses, a music improve and yes even comment on the episodes. There's a radio show segment with interviews. Really a well put together collection. The box set contains fun movie poster parodies, two per disc plus the box.

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

A Kid's Review on December 17, 2005
Format: DVD
The minute i saw Home Movies at 1:30 in the morning, i loved it. The humor was perfect for me, the characters were funny, and the animation was terrible in a good way. I decided i needed the show, so i started by buying the third season, thinking that the episode i saw was on the third, and i had loved it so much. I did not know what i was in for. My whole family loved every minute of the show, and have watched it over and over repeatedly, resulting in the purchase of other seasons we missed. This show is so underrated its a crime. It is much funnier then any other cartoon on Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, and much better then the unoriginal Family Guy. This show is up there with The Simpsons, while still remaining the same funny show it always has been. Here are my reviews of each episode.

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.
