  • A fitting end to one of the best TV series to come out of the early 2000s.

    This is the last episode of Home Movies, and fans of the show were lucky in a sense: The crew knew it was coming to an end, and as such, they had time to kind of wrap things up.

    This is personally one of my favorite episodes, and for a lot of reasons. McGuirk was always the funniest characters on the show, from the first scene of the first show (which was supposed to be his only appearance, incidentally, but H. Jon Benjamin and Brendon Small played off each other so well they kept him around. Imagine a world without McGuirk and quake, as I do!) to the very end, here. It's a McGuirk heavy show, and all the better for it. While the kids show their latest movie to a focus group consisting of Junior, Fenton, Walter and Perry, they start to wonder why they've been making movies at all. Concurrently, Paula's enlisted the help of McGuirk to build the new grill he helped her pick out. Things come full circle, with Jon continuing to be the kind of father figure to Brendon that he's slowly become, the kids perhaps realizing that they never needed the movies, just each others company, and the kind of long, improv, scenes that made the show great to begin with.

    Brendon's camera breaks, and all of us lose a little something. A fitting end.moreless
