  • Propane Boom puts Luanne's Buckley in the spotlight for one of his biggest roles yet in the series. Hank really hates the Mega-Lo-Mart and shows it at any given opportunity; though he continues to shop there...

    Propane Boom is an episode about what happens when Hank no longer brings home the proverbial bacon. The super cheap Mega-Lo-Mart puts Strickland Propane in serious trouble when they start selling propane. The same thing happpens to a lot of Mom & Pop type stores in the community, Mega-Lo-Mart is putting them all out of business and everyone continues to "feed the beast" regardless. Peggy's insensitive comments about Hank's failure at work don't really help the situation get any easier for all involved. Even the bait shop owner ends up working for the conglomerate. Hank organizes the old guys working at the Mega-Lo-Mart to disrupt the public event outside the store and things get a little crazy that night. Tune in for the full story.
