    This episode is pretty underrated. While it isn't a fantastic episode, it is pretty funny. Peggy is watchable in this episode, despite being her typical self, and I think its because she is actually funny. The best part had to be Bobby's joke about George Jetson. It was hilarious. The B Plot, while entertaining was not really funny. The concept is humorous but the jokes themselves fell flat. Overall it was a pretty good episode.moreless
  • Not very interesting.

    6.5
    I can't say that I liked this episode very much. It lacked a funny streak and was very much a bore with the focus on Peggy and real estate. I didn't think it was bad, it was just borderline average to okay. Peggy had to be fighting in a real estate storyline? That wasn't good writing by the show. It was by far a waste of a storyline. I would have liked if they gave her a different plot. But the thing that was really disappointing was the fact that there was no other significantly funny plot anywhere else. Overall it was average. Thank you.moreless
  • Connie joins Peggy working at the newspaper, but Peggy is fired for trying to blow the cover on a smarmy real estate agent, who subsequently hires her. Meanwhile, Dale buys Hank some golf clubs – previously belonging to a murderer. Average...moreless

    Watching this episode, I assumed that it was one of those stories that does not translate well across the Atlantic – I thought there must be some clever edge to the story that I, as a Brit, was missing. But reading up on other people's reviews of the episode, it seems that I wasn't missing anything, and it really was that weak.



    ...Well, maybe 'weak' is a little too strong. There are a couple of semi-amusing lines, but the episode is far from one of the show's best offerings. Peggy stories tend to fall into one of two categories: they'll either be really strong (see the season's opener, 'The Peggy Horror Picture Show'), or pretty lame. This one sadly falls into the latter.



    The whole real estate agent plot felt as if it should have been far more biting, and it was too uncertain of itself.



    The b-plot, of Hank trying to play golf with clubs that previously belonged to a convicted murderer, is quirky, and I quite liked it, but after the initial premise, it didn't really go anywhere.



    All-in-all... well, I've seen far worse 'KOTH' episodes, but this is definitely one of the more so-so episodes of the season, and in many respects has a 'filler' feel to it.moreless
  • This episode bored a little bit.

    7.9
    This episode disappointed a little bit because a thought it would be a little better then this. I think that the only funny part of this episode was when Hank got the golf clubs. The job that Peggy has now sounds boring there were really no funny parts with the Peggy plot. And I was looking foward to this episode because it sounded good. The best secene from this was whe Hank asked the guy if he had killed his partner with the golf clubs and when he found the mask in the golf bag. I just hope that next week's episode will be better than this on.moreless
  • I'm very, very disappointed with this one, because it's another bad Peggy episode.

    1.0
    Note to writers: Add comedy to episodes about Peggy or else I'm going to get bored too quickly and easily. If Peggy had lost her second job and never got it back, I'll be happy, but she obtains it in the end, and that sucks.



    Plot: It's ok, but I could care less about it.



    Sub-Plot: Hank and his friends try to be funny with the whole "clubs were used by a murderer" thing, but it was boring and not that amusing either. So, so weak.



    Comedy: Um, where is it, because I'm not laughing, with jokes so lame I could barely smile.



    The next episode better be good(along with others), or else I'm going to lose faith in this show.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Hank states to Peggy that he will waive his "no magnets on the refrigerator rule" once she gets her own real estate agent magnets (featuring her picture). This clearly violates the continuity of the series, as refrigerator magnets have been seen in previous episodes, and one episode featured Peggy arranging magnets of random words to come up with non-coherent sentences.


       

    • Tagline: "Squid boat." -Minh "Squid boat!" -Kahn

    • Luanne does not appear in this episode.

    • Boomhauer does not have any lines in this episode.

    • Wes Archer, the felon on death row who tricked Peggy into smuggling cocaine into the prison in the third season episode "Death and Texas," can be seen as Hank gets up to leave the prison visiting room after talking to the original owner of the golf clubs. Archer is getting a visit from his blond wife, who was also in "Death and Texas." Apparently he hasn't been executed yet, despite being on death row for over eight years.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Hank: I'll tell you what: Once you get a magnet with your picture on it, I'll get rid of my no-magnets-on-the-refrigerator rule.

    • Peggy: Chris Sizemore saw potential in me, and I know he is right. I know houses. I live in one.

    • Bobby: I've always wondered-- does a half-bath mean you only get to pee in it?
      Peggy: Now that I am a realtor, I will find out.

    • (Peggy is going to interview real estate mogul Chris Sizemore to impress Connie)
      Woman: You're going to just love Chris
      Peggy: Don't tell me what to write!
      Man: I'll never forget the first time Chris Sizemore shook my hand; he smiled at me and it felt like I was under a tanning lamp. Then he invited me to his office and I was!

    • (Devastated that she's been fired from 'Team Sizemore')
      Peggy: Now I know what it's like to smoke crack. I took one hit of real estate and it blew off my skull!

    • (Bill, Dale, Hank and Boomhauer are getting ready to golf when Hank's homicide-related golf clubs are mentioned)
      Bill: I wonder if the murderer took a practice swing before doing the deed.
      Dale: The urge to yell "fore!" must have been overwhelming.

    • (The guys are golfing when Dale reveals the golf clubs he gave to Hank were bought at a police auction)
      Hank: I can't use clubs convicted of murder!
      Dale: Only one of the clubs was used in the murder - the rest were just murder-adjacent.
      Hank: Was it the putter?
      Dale: You shot a 38 on the front nine - do you really want to know?

    • (Connie is at the Hills' house trying to decide on a future career and a mentor)
      Connie: I could learn so much from a professional journalist like Mrs. Hicks-Gribble.
      Peggy: You want to follow Nancy? Oh please. You should follow a serious journalist, like myself. Print media is where it's at - did you know it's where most people used to get their news?

    • Peggy: He's like that dish of mints beside the cash register at the restaurant. Sure, they look tasty but they're covered in urine.
