First off, I'm a huge fan of the King: the show is by far the best thing on Sunday night FOX and, quite frankly, one of the best (in fact, scratch that), THE best animation of all time. However, this season opener is very sub par.
At first glance this should be a great episode because it is very "kingofthehillish" (note to self: get that word in dictionary), but for some reason it just didn't appeal to me. The story felt very tacked together and didn't flow that well.
The only highlight of this episode is the subplot featuring Bobby and Josepth playing with a very unfunny joke book. However, in this story didn't get wrapped up and fell a bit short.
For a season premire, this leaves a lot to be desired and I hope the King gets back on track for the next episode.
