Heh, I actually kinda agree about Goode Family's issues, in a way. I only truly liked half the episodes, with the first couple being fairly bland and uninteresting especially. The Freegan one, the lesbian one, and the tagging one were the ones that stand out in my mind as highlights. It wasn't a hilarious show and the characters were kinda bleh at times, but I thought Gerald had his moments essentially playing the "twig boy" role, but in the protagonist position. I thought there was some pretty fun satire of Whole Foods, the hipster/artist scene, and the extremes of the green movement and the social aspects that have gone along with it. I think the show may have awarded the Goodes too much credit though in giving them happy endings and making them out to be always right in the end. The show could have been way more subversive while still showing the good intentions of hyper-liberalism and environmentalism. It was a show with a unique and relevant premise and angle to it, which is why I liked it, but it fell short of its potential and came off soft most of the time.
As for Home Movies, I can't watch the first season with the squiggly animation. It was a huge turn-off. I did watch some of the later episodes though and usually enjoyed it enough.
