Episode Summary

EDIT

Hank is ecstatic when Bobby becomes the football team's towel manager, as he is at least on a team. Bobby loses interest soon, and finds a new hobby: growing roses. Hank is shocked once he finds out, that is, until he finds a way to make it competitive, and enters Bobby into a rose growing contest. Hank slowly starts taking over and takes the fun out of it for Bobby.

  • A Rosey Episode.

    7.0
    This episode is a nice episode for Hank and Bobby bonding, but there was just nothing interesting really. I wasn't bored, and there were some funny moments, but it wasn't anything special. So far Season 7 has been pretty good, but this episode was lack luster. Even Dale, who usually makes dull episodes interesting, couldn't really save this episode. I think it's an episode that is sweet, but not up to standard with other KOTH episodes.moreless
  • Very average.

    6.0
    I won't say that I liked this episode. I would rather say that it wasn't bad and wasn't good. It was borderline average. Not one thing stood out to me. I didn't have a favorite moment because there were not any great moments. Bobby growing roses was a stupid storyline. Most ridiculous is Hank growing roses. It was completely out of character and it made no sense. I am surprised that I didn't lose complete interest when watching this episode. The writing was not good, not the comedy wasn't there, and the storylines were disappointing. Overall, it was just an average episode. Thank you.moreless
  • Bobby quits the football team as a towel folder to spend more time on a new hobby of his, growing roses, much to the dismay of Hank. Hank later accepts Bobby's hobby and joins forces with him, entering a rose growing contest.moreless

    7.9
    An underrated episode, this episode shone light on a reoccurring theme in the series, Bobby disappointing his father and not living up to his "standards". Hank, decides to meet Bobby halfway when he gives Bobby the idea of entering a rose growing contest, while still insisting he do this literally in the closet. Hank soon discovers what looks like either a passion for growing roses or the joy of working together with his son. Really, its the competitive juices flowing that has Hank set on winning this contest. A hypocritical Hank soon takes charge of the operation and begins to give Bobby advice on what he once frowned upon.



    After losing the contest on a mere technicality, Hank soon realizes that maybe he should have took more of Bobby's advice.It is either that, or because the judge said the rose would have won had one of the petals not been plucked (Bobby caused the rose to fall over, bruising one of the petals), because in the end Hank is seen planting the roses he and Bobby grew together outside. The scenes at the head shop where Hank and Bobby get the growing equipment is classic Mike Judge, takes me back to the Beavis and Butthead days.moreless
