Though I was in my late teens when I first discovered this show, I was instantly taken with it's unconventional outlook, it's strange tone, and unusual humor. I bought the DVDs and watching as an adult, I still love the show, and now enjoy it on another level, the oddball humor and subtle emotion that I didn't realize as a teen. If only there were more shows like this for my children to enjoy. It avoided typical situational comedy and shmaltzy drama, but was able to achieve both with it's subtlety. The characters were ideal, the boys and their parents, with a great cast, and surprising list of cameos, my favorite, the multi-talented Iggy Pop, as the father of now-hottie Michelle Trachtenberg's character Nona.
