I'm not sure if this series just doesn't work for me, or what. But it felt a little too self-consciously funny. And I'm really not sure I like Boone all that much. I found myself reminded of the cruel humor in Sixteen Candles, cruelty I didn't notice when I watched and loved it when it first came out but which disturbed me when I watched it again many years later. Boone's humor reminded me of things like the way they laughed at the girl in the neck brace who had trouble at the water fountain.
