  • This may be the worst King of the Hill.

    This episode feels like they had to come up with a rushed plot to kill off Cotton. Didi doesn't even show up at any point, and there is no funeral or memorial. Cotton was one of the best characters on this show, and the way he died does him zero justice. As an episode, the plot sucks. The writers decided to jump on the bandwagon of doing stories that take place at Benihana type restaurants. The good times for King of the Hill have passed (long passed but this episode just amplifies that reality). We are now stuck with a show that has its writers constantly stretch the definitions of the main characters and try and make Tom Petty's redneck character likable. That last one should be easy; they made it hard.
