  • The Best Episode That Takes Place on HIS BIRTHDAY!

    Fantastic. Everything in this episode is amazing. It is the funniest one of Season 2 and one of the funniest one's of the entire series. Bobby trying to talk like people from Arizona is classic. Even the stereotype of the TV pastor is ingenious. Never get tired of hearing "on HIS BIRTHDAY!" Cotton has a small but funny role in this episode. Hank really shows how stuck up he can be, but it works perfectly for an episode like this. It moves along nicely and each character has a chance to shine and isn't just there, like can sometimes happen. Love love love this episode!
  • The Unbearable Blindness of Laying is a very well thought out episode and one of the only ones featuring Hank's mom's boyfriend Gary. Hank sees something he would rather forget and we must unravel the mystery.

    The Unbearable Blindness of Laying show's Hank's hang-ups for what they really are: valid but unnecessary. When Hank's mother comes to visit the Hill house with her boyfriend Gary in tow, Hank decides right off that they cannot even bunk in the same room. His mom nips that nonsense in the budd with great aplomb and slowly but surely the family gets Hank to calm down a bit (he seems a little more neurotic than usual during this entire episode). Well, during the visit, the Hill's go to a baseballl game, leaving Hank's mom and Gary at home to their own devises; only Hank forgot something in the house. When he enters the house unannounced, he gets an eyeful and the laughs ensue. Tune in for more detail.
