  • Mooning, Lenore and Charcoal! Oh My!

    8.0
    Another pretty good Season 5 episode. This has Hank letting (a bit too) loose and mooning the hotel lobby, in which Anne Richards is speaking. It leads to Bill's relationship with her and a few laughs. It is also the episode that finally shows Lenore. She is a very interesting character, and I think would have been fun to see in more. The B plot is a plot you knew they were eventually going to do. Peggy falling in love with Bwahhhhh Charcoal! It is pretty funny how they handle the B plot and at times is actually better than the A plot. Overall this was a pretty good episode. One of the better ones of this season.moreless

    King of the Hill kicks off an episode where Hank and the gang go to Austin. Sounds simple and innocent, right? Well, Hank and his friends moon people and the a political figure in the process. I thought that this was a funny episode and it really was a clever little plot. At home, Peggy decides to try charcoal and falls in love with it. She and Bobby try to hide their love for charcoal from Hank. When a burger is made, they secretly like the coals than the propane. After Hank finds out, they try to cover for their secret, but it doesn't matter. Thank you.moreless
  • This episode is about Bill's relationship with Ann Richards. It is revealed that Peggy and Bobby like their barbecue with charcoal instead of propane.

    I like this episode because Bobby and Peggy prefer charcoal over Propane. I also prefer charcoal instead of propane. It is funny how they were hiding it from Hank. I also like it how Bill gets along with Ann Richards. I also enjoyed how Bill stood up against his ex-wife, Lenore. I found it sad because they did not continue their relationship. I also enjoyed it because it showed how the charcoal makes the barbecue taste better than propane and how Peggy stood up against Hank's Test. I liked the last comment she said to Bobby about "listening to her senses"moreless

  • TRIVIA (7)

    • Tagline: "I'm doing it! I'm a mooner!" -Hank

    • After the banquet dinner where Bill sees Lenore, she comes to visit him at home. They are sitting down on the couch and when she's talking she has her hand on his chest and you can see there is a pen in Bill's right shirt pocket. Between shots she talks about stealing Bill away at the prom and in one quick shot the pen disappears and the next shot it returns. Also look at Lenore's hand in this scene. It goes from being next to his chest, away from his chest back to being on his chest.

    • As Peggy is testing the burgers at the end to see the difference she moves to the charcoal grill and puts three patties between 2 buns. In the next shot when she is throwing them out there are two extra buns in amongst the middle patties.

    • When Hank & the guys are talking about mooning from the glass elevator, Hank is positioned with his back next to the wall as he is sitting at the table. When Dale says his high school mooning was the best thing he ever did it. It then shows Hank and he says, "The vice principal gave you a week's detention" and is now sitting away from the wall with his back to a group of men in the opposite table.

    • This is the only episode that features Bill's ex-wife, Lenore.

    • Lenore's date at the dinner looks exactly like Bill, except with a full head of hair.

    • When Peggy says that she and Bobby ate all the hamburgers, if you look in the background, you can see a full plate of them.
