King of the Hill is an amazing show, regardless of what people say. Usually, the people who hate this show are petulant children with the attention span of goldfish who need constant cutaway gags and raunchy humor to keep them interested (cough cough---Family Guy---cough cough). The characters are generally likable (with the exception of Peggy for her holier-than-thou mentality, and maybe Didi because she's so bland) and the show can be hilarious without pushing the limit, swearing excessively or using cutaways. I guess it was better that it was cancelled in favor of "Sit Down, Shut Up" (a terrible TERRIBLE show that doesn't hold a candle to KoTH) because the later seasons were pretty bland.
Nevertheless, KoTh is an amazing show. Reruns are shown on Adult Swim on a daily basis, but are limited to only one episode a night thanks to "Cleveland Show" (another terrible show, not as bad as "Sit Down, Shut Up", but close).
To this day, I am teed off that FOX replaced King of the Hill with The Cleveland Show (and now, Bob's Burgers). The writing, animation and characters on King were all first-rate, which explains why the show was the second-longest running series behind The Simpsons. It's time that Hank Hill and company appear in a crossover movie with Homer and the gang--one in which Homer attempts to work as a tank wipe at Strickland Propane, but with obvious disastrous results, just like at the nuclear plant. It will be a great day to hear Hank Hill utter the sweetest words in the English language: "HOMER SIMPSON, I'M GONNA KICK YOUR ASS!"
This show was one of the best. The animation was superb for its time, the characters are well written and convincing and the plots are almost all good as well. There were a few moments on the show that irked me but I really enjoyed a lot of the episodes. The good news is that you can basiclly buy every season now. Let the memories of this show shine for a long time.
King of the Hill, and The Simpsons, set the standard for adult orientated animation. They are both excellent series in their own right. King of the Hill, is more subtle than The Simpsons and finds humour in everyday life without making any of the charachters out to be fools. I really miss the series and hope one day it will get a welcome revival.
I used to love this show a lot. It got a good run, but it wouldn't hurt to revive it. It along with Family Guy and Futurama are/were the best shows on FOX. All we have now is Family Guy on FOX and Futurama is getting re-canceled on Sept. 4th.
I absolutely love this show one of my favorites of all time and my favorite show on fox. The show is real in more ways than one and the problems and characters feel real it's always made me smile at the end when ever the credits came and that little guitar would play. It was a heart warming show and ill treasure it always I hope it returns now that the Cleveland show was canceled chances of that happening though are slim. Overall, I loved this show on of the greatest television shows of all time in my opinion.
While it did lose its heat towards the end of the series, even the newer ones managed to make me laugh somewhat, and in its hey day, it was incredible. What I liked most, was unlike Family Guy and Simpsons, its real. Things that happen in this show have potential to happen in real life, for the most part. The humour is great and often pokes fun at ignorant Americans as suppose to being crude and rude towards other groups of people, such as different races and cultures etc. like other adult comedies. There are characters that while eccentric, seem to be based on real personalities that you meet everyday. Overall it was a great show, that I have watched many times over, and will continue to watch over and over again. KOTH forever!
King of the Hill is one of the best shows ever made. It's a shame that it was cancelled. I wouldn't hesitate to pay money to watch new episodes. I hope, that one day Mike Judge will resurrect the Hill saga. There is no way you can compare corny "Futurama" or offensive "Family Guy" to KOTH. Another great show cancelled to make room for a mediocre entertainment.
This is the Best Show that Fox has ever had, That's right even better than the Old Simpsons! No offense to the Simpsons fans, I love the old Simpsons too, but this Show has everything in a realistic cartoon view! I mean really every Episode makes me laugh my ass off and all the Characters are so awesome! That's right all the Characters are likeable and funny in their own way. From Bill behaving like a Child to Dale being a psychopath. The Plots are very Realistic and some of the episodes can also get very emotional which makes a series very strong if they have that topic unlike The Cleveland Show. Mike Judge is a genius for making up such a brilliant show, I praise him with all my heart. In 2009, King of the Hill got replaced with a Show called "The Cleveland Show" Now I am not to upset about it being replaced though, 13 Seasons is a long way for a show and that is quite successful. but King of the Hill should have been replaced with at least a tolerable show, but no "The Cleveland Show" is not a tolerable show, "IT IS BEYOND HORRIFIC!!!!!!" The Cleveland Show is so Stupid!! Same with the New Episodes of Family Guy, FG was once okay, but now it is so bad. American Dad on the other hand is a good show! Seth Mcfarland should just cancel FG and Cleveland Show and work on American Dad cause that show is actually pretty funny! King of the Hill is so Awesome that it should have its own Movie just like the Simpsons did. maybe in 2014 or so and released into theaters; I would definitely go see it! Well that's my review for King of the Hill, oh and my Favorite King of the Hill Character is Dale Gribble. :)
I'll be completely honest- I love this show, really. But it has problems. Let me explain some before be get into the good stuff:
-One thing that REALLY bothers me in this show is how the characters look down on some people, like in the episode were Bobby gets into Tarriot cards. They made people who use them look like geeks, but my family uses them [we're a spiritual family] and I kind of found this offensive.
-I know this show is about a family in Texas, but their SUCH rednecks that it's kind of annoying. Like I said, it's part of the show, but they didn't need to make it THAT bad.
Good things now! Yay.
-The plots are all based on real-life problems, which I actually enjoy. After watching things like Family Guy, it's always nice to see a show about things that can actually happen.
-The characters are also all good, but some are kind of irretating.. but what show doesn't have irretating characters?
-I love the art in this show. It's all realistic and nice, but the animation is a bit bumpy. Well... this is an older show, after all.
King of the Hill is one of those shows that will always be remembered. Everything in this show was done so well, the humor, the characters, and the stories, and it has always made people laugh. KOTH is about a family in the fictional town of Arlen, Texas where the family, the Hills, have funny adventures and dilemmas in their lives. The episodes are actually parodies of real life events. For example, Hank is trying to get his licensed changed because his gender reads female, but the DMV is slow to react and does not do anything at all. That is the beauty of KOTH, it takes real life drags like the DMV and make it into a funny parody of how people experience it, and it perfectly relates to the audience. All the characters are lovable, funny, and unique. Dale is an anti government person who always says the weirdest, yet funniest things, and Bobby brings in a lot of funny jokes about things and it is very amusing. But why did FOX have to cancel this show? I know you have to bring in new shows, but the show that took its place, The Cleveland Show, tanked and it's really bad (see mine and other people's reviews about that show and you will see why). King of the Hill brought us 12 wonderful years of comedy and is still enjoyed to this day. Everything in this show was done right, the acting, the characters, the parodies of real life situations, and so much more. Mike Judge, please bring this show back with new episodes. Go to another network so they can allow you to continue this awesome show. Check this show out if you already haven't done so.
This show is so excellent. The animation is brilliant, the voice acting is awesome (I don't know how Pamela Adlon did it), the stories are smart, and they all have a moral. This show rocks and should come back!
This show is just great I really enjoyed this show it is just funny and clever! The characters are really funny and some are like able. I really wish that this show came back because Cleveland Show is not good at all.... However at least it had a long run, I really do wish it came back though!!
This show is absolutely perfect! It's pure genius! Yes, it would work live-action but that doesn't mean it has to be. I'm so sad it was canceled for a terrible show to take it's place. Shame on FOX for not even airing the final episodes, seriously! They all look like hillbilly-rednecks but there actually smart, nice characters. Especially Hank, he's high-tempered but really nice. The only season that kind of sucked was the final one. I just recently discovered how incredibly incredible this show is and I'm buying every season released on DVD! I just wish FOX could cancel TCS and bring back this amazing show. Just watch an episode, and you'll want to watch another, then another and become addicted to it. I watch it every day, literally every day. Okay, I sound weird now, but it's really a got-dang good show, I tell you what.
I love this great show,to bad some people hate this great show.The characters are Hank hill,Peggy hill,Bobby hill and many more.The show first came in 1997. i think they are going to stop making episodes im not saying they are but they might,who knows it might or not,anyway this show rules!!!!!!! !!!
Honestly. Most people who dislike this love random cutscenses/flashbacks that go on for 5 minutes or stupid sex jokes. King of The Hill was perfect. You could actually enjoy it, watch it with your family, and laugh. If you give this show a bad rating or dislike this comment, I've lost hope for America. 10/10
There is nothing about KoTH that warrants animation. It's like Fox sponsored a spin-off of the lamest character from Beavis and Butthead (which was a really really dumb show to begin with but good for a few chuckles) and Judge flushed it out to be a whole series of Texas flavored after-school specials about resisting pop culture and liberalism. Think 'Saved By the Bell' meets 'Little House on the Prarie'.
I like beavis and butthead however this show isn't like beavis and butthead. After mike judge made beavis and butthead then he made this, I can't even see a resemblence in writeing or humor. The simpsons and futurama feel like its from matt groening,family guy and american dad feel like its from seth macfarlane. Beavis and butthead is a show thats stupid and funny and king of the hill doesn't. The reason why I don't like this show is because it's boring and it's dry humor, this just isn't my type of show. I like shows like futurama and south park. I just can't find this pathetic and boring show to be funny, it's just my personal opinion.
Man, I can't believe "King of the Hill" lasted 13 seasons and I'm very happy that it did. I just wish that it didn't get canceled because I really love this show but I heard that this show got canceled because of "Bob's Burgers". FOX had to put in a new timeslot and they canceled "King of the Hill" for that stupid and unfunny show "Bob's Burgers". I really want this show to come back. I blame you "Bob's Burgers" because you stink and the animation, voices, stories, and everything stinks. Everyone in this show is likeable and very funny. Hank, Dale, Bill, and Boomhauer are four friends who stand in the front yard drinking beer and talk. Bobby is Hank's son and Peggy is Hank's wife. Didi is also Hank and Peggy's niece. It's really hard to choose of who my favorite characters in this show are but I'm gonna probably say that Hank and Dale are my favorite characters. What I about this show is that the humor is clever and wacky all of the stories are pretty much well written. For 13 seasons, this show has brought me a lot of smiles because it would make me laugh but it is a shame to see this show leave. Overall, I'll never forget "King of the Hill" and you're a hundred times better than that stupid "Bob's Burgers". 10/10
King of the Hill was actually one of those shows that had adults who were not complete morons and but could still be funny at the same time.Dale is my favorite character out of all of them because he is crazy and paranoid over the government which makes believe that the government can not be trusted.Hank has just an amazing voice that makes him sound like an old redneck.The only insult that this show had was that it got cancelled and replaced with a piece of crap show like Cleveland.Its just like when Disney got rid of all their good shows and replaced it with crap like Miley Cyrus.
But when you consider that this show was created by the makers of Beavis and Butthead (Which in my opinion is nothing but an abysmal waste of time and effort, trying to create a comedy cartoon), this show didn't do half-bad. It had its good moments and bad moments. But what makes this show so much better than the previously-reviewed Walker, Texas Ranger? Well, for one thing, there wasn't a bunch of tough and buff good guys and bad guys trying to beat each other up every episode! For another thing, I seem to remember having seen more and better characters in this show, such as Connie and John Redcorn. And this is all I have to say for now.
This is about a small neighborhood in Arlen,Texas. They face usual problems, but also some unusual ones.
The characters are likeable, the up-tight Hank, creative Bobby, Red neck Lucky, Crazy Dale, Lonely Bill, and Womanizer Boomhawer.
The plot could go so many different ways and they chose to do it right. Mutiple guest stars, great character developement, and Perfect pace.
This survived very many seasons because alot of the comedy was family oriented, but still Halarious. Mike Judge did a great job with voice acting. The accents could be funny at times, but were perfect!
I would definetly point this show out to people, 10/10. And, once again, the only bad thing is the show ended.
