    Tho technically they did touch this subject, tho in a low-key manner when Bobby was "The Stick" on the track & field team.

    I'd love if that happen. Bobby being ridiculously out of shape has gotten old.

    Well if Hank wasn't such an ignoramus whose mind is stuck back in whatever generation he thinks we're still in, he'd realise that if he let Bobby do that dancing and stuff, he'd either get in better shape or never survive basic training.

    I've known many dance students and instructors, so I know.

    I think Hank is more concerned about Bobby getting picked on at school than his masculinity. Texas culture doesn't exactly look highly upon mixing gender roles.

    True, but most of the character that seem to complain the most about "machismo" issues are the older guys.

    If anything, let Bobby work on the comedy/acting dream, but only if he starts going to the weight room.

    What? That queer dog dance stuff? That's not real dancing.


    Actually, Bobby has shown that he likes to dance, and not just with dogs. Maybe he wants to be in musical theater or something.

    That was a brilliant episode. Seems like King of the Hill has its best episodes when it's something to do with sports / the 4 of them active in something.

    I'd actually like to see that

    They make a lot of people who are usually good people in real life look bad on KotH, and usually end up getting their asses kicked by Hank in some way. I'd like to see Hank get his ass kicked by someone he thinks he's better than, but isn't

    The #1 way to ruin King of the Hill would be to allow Seth McFarlane to take over the writing. Yes. That's right. The new Family Guy sucks. Why do you think I watch King of the Hill instead? I'm just glad they finally killed Cotton Hill (or however you spell his name). He was the worst character on the show. Now, that dishonor is taken by Lucky.

    Oh, I did see that episode... no I meant Hank gets beat up in a fight, besides in that episode Hank just keeps trying until he wins then suddenly they're the best when the score's like 2-1.

    Although Dale is the best character, I'd like to see Bill beat the living **** out of him

    Lucky slips on pee-pee again
    Didi and her inbred baby move in with the Hills
    Boomhauer gets a wife
    Peggy makes a real friend
    Peggy not dying.

    I think that about covers it.

    I'm going to go through all this "ways to ruin" King of The Hill.

    1. I have no problem with it getting more episodes with every season. However it probably would get old and is perfect for a 13 episode season.

    2 and 3. Sadly if Dale finds out about Redcorn it will be Jump the shark. Earlier on it wouldn't matter, Dale and Nancy could get divorced and multiple storyline raises. They could get baack together at the end and could make it more interesting for aseason or two. Now, its gone on too long and that wouldn't work quite aswell.

    4. Didn't Bobby already hit puberty? It's strange that Joseph already has but, it's not in our time. Anyway that fits better in a serie finale.

    5. For someone who hates Peggy (Pretty obvious to tell) I assumed you would like it. It would means Peggy will be a college alot and wouldn't have as much screen time.

    6. Their wouldn't be a Ladybird II as Bobby would pick out the next Dog and will most likely name it aswell. I don't believe Ladybird's death would ruin King of The Hill. The episode could be done brillantly and even bring tears to eyes. People will probably miss the Hank/Ladybird moments but, dog dies and could really be a great episode.

    7. If Hanks going to become manager of strickland again, I'll asume thats best for a finale. However, I remember hearing they wanted it to end with the same 4 guys in the alley, pretty much just another episode. Personally I love closure on shows finale.

    8. Hanks bro coming to Arlen for one or two episode woul not be bad. I'll admit I didn't like those episodes with him but, honestly wouldn't ruin King of the Hill. With Cotton's death he would at least have a reason to come. Maybe he could take care of GH and Didi. You know take them to Japan or something.

    9. Yeah, Bill shouldn't get married. It would be interesting if he gets married to someone who was justr using him for some reason. But, that would have to be in an early season, they can't take much risks and obviously that has Jump The Shark written on it.

    I'm not going to debate Joseph steriods(All though I will say intersting episode idea.)-Boomhauer wife because no real dissagreements.

    10. Nancy techincally counts as a friend fo Peggy so...

    11. Peggy not dying? What the hell is with this Peggy hate. The show would lose a big chunk of the show. I don't care much about Peggy but, the show is about the Hills. Killing one off is stupid.

    One way that they would definitely kill this show is if they ever change the fantastically addictive theme tune - cannot believe that nobody had already mentioned that.

    Watch the episode "Goodbye Normal Jeans" from season 6, or read the quotes from it on this:

    http://www.geocities.com/arlen_texas/normaljeans.htm

    It was the episode where Peggy got so jealous of Bobby because he learned how to cook, got her hair done, totally turned on Bobby & stole the Thanksgiving turkey. Sometimes I think just seeing what she says written out makes her come off even worse. This is just one example of many.
