  • How I Learned to Enjoy This Episode

    This is a pretty good episode. Not as great as the previous two, but still good none the less. I think Dale could have been utilized more, as the parts he did have were good, but was not in it very much. I thought it was a good maturity of character for Hank to not stop the entire production, which I could actually seem him doing. I also liked that they used Peggy's "know-it'all" attitude as a humorous device in this episode, as suppose to just annoying the viewers. I actually enjoyed the B Plot, and it's nice to see Luanne get more screen time this season, after being basically non-existant in Seasons 6 and 7. Overall it was a pretty decent episode, which entertained me, but did have that many laughs.
  • Hank tries to change the school boards view on the Alamo and once again Peggy goes overboard trying to teach kids with "Flat Stanley"

    This was a decent episode with perfect examples of who Hank and Peggy are. Hank, with his love for Texas tries to teach the kids of the town about the Alamo. Hank sometimes lets his love blind him to the potential of gettting taken advantage of like the director of the play. Peggy is too quick to think she knows best to do with Flat Stanley. Instead of following everyone else she tries to teach safety. Well, she's an idiot in my opinion. Hank means well but the world isn't so forgiving and that always gets the best of him
