I've been really obsessed with "King of the Hill" lately. I'm re-watching all of the episodes on Netflix, and you should, too. I may even like it better than the Simpsons, and that is saying something. Not only is it so dang hilarious, it's also such an interesting commentary on the American family. Here's why I love it:
1. Hank Hill
2. If Mike=Hank, then I guess that means Carly=Peggy--I WISH!
3. Then there's Bobby. There is nothing funnier than Bobby Hill when he has gout from eating too much chicken liver at the Showbiz Deli. Nothing. Okay, maybe his love of fruit pies (again, relate-able).
4. Cotton Hill. The man who lost his shins in dubbya dubbya two. There is nothing funnier than him yelling at his grandson to get him his "shin jelly."
5. These guys:
6. Kahn and Minh Souphanousinphone. I love how racist and obnoxious they are. I love how the show turns racism on its head, making the rednecks less hateful toward the Laotians and the Laotians more hateful toward the rednecks. It's funny and ironic and goes against the stereotype. It's an interesting commentary.
7. Arlen: It's totally like Rexburg. Small town. Good ol' boys. But full of clearly complex and extremely loveable individuals. I love it.
If you haven't watched "King of the Hill" in a while, you should give it a try.
