what is it that you guys like so much about it?
just like you said, the dry humor. on the season 3 dvd (i think) there's a special feature that's just coach mcgurk and brendon doing a little improv conversation for about 30 minutes, and it's probably one of the funniest things on the 3-disc set. aside from this...
the dialogue. this show could be a strictly audio format show (like a radio broadcast or something) and i would like it just as much. the overlapping dialogue, the awkward pauses and stutters; a lot of it also seems very real. and the voice actors play off of each other a lot, as a lot of the funniest moments are most likely improv'd.
the only thing i didn't like about home movies was squigglevision, but that's gone now so i'm happy. too bad it got cancelled though
