  • Surfs Up

    8.0
    This is another solid outing from the KOTH crew here in the 12th Season. It had a pretty decent plot and had some funny moments. It's not quite as good as the other Season 12 episodes so far, but it was still a good one. The B plot wasn't really funny, but it was nice to see Bill feeling loved and needed. As much as I love seeing him get hurt, it's always nice to see him happy now and then. Overall a good episode.moreless
  • A nice summer episode about Boomhauer and the neighborhood kids, but nothing spectacular.

    7.9
    While I enjoyed this episode, it wasn't a stunning success that made me want to watch it over and over again, like many other King of the Hill episodes. However, "Four-Wave Intersection" is a pretty good episode, and shouldn't be skipped.



    Boomhauer episodes are few and far between, and usually involve him as a secondary character, so it was nice that he played such a large role in this episode. It also went a long way in developing Boomhauer's character, which hasn't been a priority since, well, ever.



    Oddly enough, Joseph had some of the best lines of the episode, with his explanation on why he was at the Hills' house instead ov his own ("My dad has the heat cranked all the way up! He said something about fighting fire with fire, but it wasn't working for me!") and his interpretation of the words to the commercial jingle for directions to the water park.



    While the idea was pretty funny that the older kids were insisting Bobby, Connie and Joseph couldn't go on the water slide over something as asinine as not being local, I didn't really understand where the joke came from - they didn't really made it clear where exactly this water park was - I thought it was IN Arlen, but Bobby's an Arlen native so they should've let him in. If it was outside of Arlen, where outside of town? I know they got on the highway, but never said how far from Arlen they were.moreless
  • Heat wave!

    9.5
    This episode of "King of the Hill" is hotter than say 110 degress in the slade. the eposide has two main stories, one Hank and the kids battle the surfer bullies who guard the biggest slider in the park. With help from Boonhauler, who';s used to be a popular sufer himself comes to the rescue, or does he? also, bill is standing by the road, waving at everybody. Until he gets burns, but even that don't stop him. a few weeks ago, I gave the episode a 10 and I though the series is gone, now with this episode, it here to stay until FOX pulls the show. this episode gets a 9.5. Hotter than anything else this season.moreless

    • Hank: I don't know what the heck's going on here but someone needs to get their asses kicked.
      Bobby: Finally. Yes. Thank you. It's time to kick their local asses.
      Hank: Bobby. Language.

    • (Bobby is explaining his trouble with the 'local' surfers at the water park)
      Luanne: That is so weird, because I always have really good experiences with surfers. Did they help put your sunscreen on, Bobby?
      Bobby: No.

    • Hank: 'Locals only'? That's the most insane thing I've ever heard of - nobody lives in an amusement park!

    • Luanne: I read in a magazine about a girl surfer who was attacked by a shark, and against all odds, she still managed to be pretty.

    • Joseph (explaining why he's at the Hill house): My dad has the heat cranked all the way up! He said something about fighting fire with fire, but it wasn't working for me!

    • Lady: Nice Daisy Dukes!


      Daisy Dukes are the slang term for cut up short shorts. That style of shorts were popularized by the character Daisy Duke from "Dukes of Hazzard" and were subsequently named after her.

    • The name of Bodhi, is most likely an homage to the character of the same name in the film "Point Break" in which Bodhi is the leader of a surfing gang.

    • Luanne: "I read in a magazine about a girl surfer who was attacked by a shark, and against all odds, she still managed to be pretty."

      This is a reference to Bethany Hamilton, a professional surfer who lost her arm in a shark attack on October 31st, 2003. She wrote about her experience in the 2004 autobiography "Soul Surfer: A True Story of Faith, Family, and Fighting to Get Back on the Board" and there was a movie based upon her experience called Soul Surfer.
