  • Not Crappy at All!

    8.0
    This is one of the better episodes this season. It has a weird, yet highly entertaining plot and also has a ton of humours spots. All the characters do a great job in this episode. Kahn's line is one of the funniest things in the series. I really liked the relationship between Hank and Bobby in this one, and how Hank wants what's best for his son. It's a plot point that they've used multiple times ("Husky Bobby" comes to mind), but it doesn't feel stale. Overall it was a really good episode.moreless
  • Funny.

    8.5
    It is a funny episode, that I have to say. I liked the comedy and also the way things played out throughout the episode. Bobby didn't want to be on a job shadow with Hank so he stalled just to look for another job. After he fails, he decides to give in and job shadow with Hank. The thing is, Joseph takes the spot before Bobby and it leaves Bobby to find a different one. Overall, this was a good episode of King of the Hill. I liked the comedy and also the story of the show. I was entertained. Thank you.moreless
  • For work shadow week, Bobby winds up working for a one-man pooper scooper business, much to the dismay of Hank, who wanted him to work with him at Strickland Propane. Meanwhile, it is Jospeh who spends the week at Strickland. A great episode...moreless

    After a couple of so-so episodes comes this excellent tale.



    Everything seems to be working out for Bobby, but Hank and Peggy just can't live with the idea of what Bobby is doing.



    It was a nice touch of casting 'Jackass's Johnny Knoxville as the voice of Peter Sterling, in a way sending himself (who is well known for his scatological expoits) up.



    A lot more could have been done with Jospeh working at Strickland Propane, but the story is taken up focusing on Bobby working for Peter (and isn't the worse for it). Late on, we see Dale hiding in the bushes, "shadowing Jospeh shadowing Hank". Again, a lot could have been done with this, but the story doesn't really suffer from not having it.



    A really good story, possibly one of the best of the season.moreless
