Normally, a single King of the Hill episode isn't threadworthy. But tonight, the great Cotton Hill met his end.

The episode, as you might imagine, revolved around Cotton Hill's death...and the way he took his sweet time dying. Everything was done well, especially Cotton once again antagonizing Hank for saying "I love you". But the moment of the show was the final encounter between Peggy and Cotton, a scene that was about intense as any scene in the series to date.

The subplot with Luanne and Lucky practicing their parenting skills on Bobby was merely there, but it should be noted that Mike Judge briefly resurrected the "riding the giant tire" gag from Beavis and Butt-head, which is must-see material.

Thumbs up. Catch a replay if possible.

I'm sorry I missed it and will definately look for the replay. As much as I really like KotH, I don't seem to get to see it as much. Shame.

"Marriage is like that show ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’, but it’s not funny. All the problems are the same, but you know instead of all the funny, pithy dialogue, everybody is really pissed off and tense. Marriage is like a tense, unfunny version of 'Everybody Loves Raymond', only it doesn't last 22 minutes. It lasts forever."

I wasn't sure what to make of it at first. For a show that tries to stay as realistic as KotH does, Cotton's end seemed a little over-the-top, though the anticipation of him going to a Japanese restaurant had me tingling - and the looks he gave the chef met my expectations.

Peggy's deathbed chat most of the issues I had with the episode. These two quite imperfect people had so many issues, and a lesser show would have tearfully resolved them. Not the great KotH.

And I completely lost interest and barely paid attention to this episode. I think this must be why I only try to do this the first Sunday of the year. Here... you say something. "Gross." You said it, buddy!
