    This was an entertaining episode, and is funnier the first time you see it, then it is once you've watched it multiple times. It does have some pretty good laughs, especially with Dale forgetting the "e" in the band name. One thing that I noticed with a lot of the later seasons is they tried to have story lines based around the recurring characters as suppose to the main characters. I think there is a reason that these characters, while good, are meant to be supporting characters and not main ones. They just can't hold an episode themselves. That is probably the biggest issue with this episode. John Redcorn really isn't that interesting or funny enough to have his own plot. After the Nancy affair ended, his character always seemed "there" but with really no point. It wasn't a terrible episode, but it could have been much better.
  • John Redcorn takes a serious look at his life and decides to get a little of his youth back.

    When John Redcorn realizes that he is 40 and has yet to accomplish all the things he once hoped that he could, he decides to form a heavy metal rock band. The problem is, they aren't any good and when the job offers don't exactly come rolling in, he decides to take gamble and starts his own Indian casino. Luckily, when trouble happens, his manager is there to help him out...

    This is another good episode of King of the Hill. By this point in the series most viewers know all the characters well and are used to their quirky personalities. However, rather than being just a bunch of one dimensional cartoon figures, the characters of King of the Hill remain rooted and consistent in their behavior. This show uses those roots in a good way and comes up with a surprising and fun result.

    While there may be better episodes of King of the Hill, this one stands as a fine, clever example of the series.
