  • The conversation is worth it!

    When I first experienced this show, I judged the way it was drawn. I think most turned away simply because it wasn't pretty to look at. I think the way it looks adds to the humor! Every time I watch an episode I laugh, all of the characters make me laugh, but particularly Brendon and Coach McGuirk have me rolling! I still remember this show after all these years so I guess you can say I liked it.

  • Looks poorly drawn to be a hit

    Sorry, but I cant help looking at the way all the characters are drawn and telling myself, "Gee, they look I just cant get past that problem to enjoy the show if I even tried my hardest.
  • good show !

    a very funny smart show that deserves a revival due to all the current crap on adult swim

  • Not a favorite, but still somewhat enjoyable...

    Home Movies is about a boy named Brendon Small, who video-tapes movies in order to one day become a movie producer.

    It's incredibly awkward, first of all. I think the humor comes more from the coach than it does with Brendon or his mother. I don't really like the characters, except maybe the coach a little bit.

    The animation is downright lazy. I get a headache watching the first season because of how choppy it is. But I'm glad that they sort of fixed it in later episodes.

    I never found myself loving or hating this show. I just don't really understand why it's so popular among people. I've seen a decent amount of episodes to come to my final conclusion:


    Home Movies is okay. Not great, but certainly not the worst on Adult Swim.moreless
  • Suprisingly hilarious.

    This show proves that animation doesn't have to be smooth in order to make a good show (though it IS very important). Home Movies' animation is very choppy, with "squigglemation" lines, and distorted characters. At first glance, it can turn a viewer off. However, Home Movies manages to do something rare: it manages to be hilarious and totally watchable despite it's oddball external appearance. Its casual and is as hilarious as it is oddball. Its a shame Adult Swim doesn't produce more good shows like this. I give Home Movies and 8 out of 10.moreless
