Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Cordial Episode

    I thought it was interesting how they have an episode about being cool centreing around cotillion, which hasn't been cool in, five years is it??? I don't think it was laugh out loud funny, but it was entertaining, and it was funny to see Peggy and Bobby try and be cool. I also liked the message of the episode, which is cool, really is non existent. I really enjoyed the B Plot, which is where most of the laughs for me came in. I love when they place Hank in an awkward situation. Overall it was a pretty good episode.moreless
  • Being cool is not what it's cracked up to be.

    I think there is a point where we could all relate to Peggy about trying to be cool in order to fit in. But what I loved about this episode was the twist, Just when you think Peggy and Bobby are going to get screwed over on the deal, they get a bit of a surprise.

    While I thought this episode was great, they should have used the song "Through Being cool" by Devo.moreless
  • Entertaining.

    It was actually a very good episode. I liked the writing and I thought that it was also a fine example of classic King of the Hill. It was very entertaining and it contained many of the elements that have made this show really fun to watch. My favorite moment had to be where Hank has to find some place to sit and eat so he is left to sit at the big table. He brings his friends to be a buffer. Overall, this was a great episode and it was also very fun to watch. I was entertained and interested. Thank you.moreless
  • Oh, that darn Peggy.

    Another solid submission from the "KotH" people. This is another "Peggy Improvement" themed episode were Peggy's insecurities lead her to try and be something of someone she is not all the while coming to the realization that there is nothing wrong with her or the way she lives, and this time Bobby comes along for the ride. While we have seen this before, this episode manages to use the same plot without it seeming stale. Peggy and Bobby's willingness to buy or do anything they perceive to be cool or cutting edge is particularly hilarious in this episode. Their uber-coolness comes to a head with their "In-Your-Face" entrance into the party, and Peggy's Indiana Jones/Amazon Woman ensemble and Bobby's hoodlum gear. While focusing primarily on the adventures of Peggy and Bobby this week, Hank also has a side adventure involving a barn made into a restaurant, a meatloaf sandwich, and Hank's mild disdain of other people. Solid over all.moreless

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Katt: Peggy, you aren't driven by trends or fashion or snarky Web sites. You don't need to be. You are your own person. And I think that's way cool.
      Peggy: Well, come to think of it, so do I.

    • Katt: You think Katt Savage is my real name? It's not. It's Barb Davis. And now...I'm free.
      Peggy: I-I do not understand.
      Katt: I knew I was drawn to you for a reason. I must've had a subconscious need to break away from all this.
      Peggy: Oh... so, I am so "uncool," I snapped you out of your hip trance?
      Katt: Exactly.

    • Peggy: I swear, we were not snooping, we, we were just trying to find a way out.
      Katt: (sighs) I never wanted anyone to see this. I don't know,...maybe I did, since I didn't keep it locked or anything.
      Bobby: You're not going to lock it now, are you?
      Katt: Being as cutting edge as I am, it's a full-time job. Seriously. I wake up when it's still dark to watch the European news. Then I check in with the club kids just before they go to bed. I read 142 blogs a day, every day, every hour.
      And look at me, I'm texting right now. (reads message) Huh. Wristbands are out.
      Katt: Sure, all of this seems crazy. But I don't know, I guess that's the price you pay for glamor. I mean, look at this bag. It's not coming out for three months.
      Peggy: I believe it. I want this bag, that collage, your life!
      Katt: Trust me, you don't. See, I follow trends. All of them, no matter what-- piercings, colonics, trendy surgeries, online affairs. I've even done some street fighting.

    • Michael: I'm Michael.
      Bobby: What if I told you my name was Amanda? It's not. It's Bobby.
      Michael (laughs): You're funny. That's major.
      Bobby: "Major"?
      Michael: Sorry, they use it in Britain. It means, you know, "cool." Like perfume that smells like dirt or numbers used as letters.

    • Bobby: Wow a whole new crop of girls! And not one of them has seen my flatulent monkey visits the post office routine.

    • Peggy: Am I just gonna listen to the same cassettes and wear the same clothes until I die?
      Hank: Well, not if they wear out.
