I caught the latter episode of the hour-long series finale. This was more like the average KotH episode, than a half-hour goodbye, which was probably for the best. We do get one final look at the entire cast during the final minutes (including Boomhauer putting down a BADGE) in time to watch Hank and Bobby have their major bonding moment.

Not much to write home about otherwise, as Bobby on a meat team doesn't scream hilarity. This show definitely stayed on a few seasons too many and suffered from Fox juggling it around, but at least it got a decent finish.

Goodbye, Hank Hill. It was a good ride, I tell you what.

All hail the Hypno-Toad

I don't know that I've ever seen a show end a season in May, then come back for two final episodes in September, when the new season usually starts. Real odd. I was never a big KotH fan until my roommate got me into it (and Futurama) in my second year of college; now I check it out (almost) every night on Adult Swim.

I've been waiting for that episode since March after the Ace of Cakes' King of the Hill episode where they made a cake for the show (a grill, I think) and Duff and Geof got to do voices on the show.

Duff was one of the A&F guys and I think Geof was the judge at the end. They even got to sit in on a read through of the script. Everyone was there except for Mike Judge, who was on speaker-phone. It was weird seeing that chick (Pamela Segall) who was on that Mintaka III episode of ST:TNG (Who Watches The Watchers) doing Bobby's voice.

The first part of the episode ("The Boy Can't Help It") was great as well. I think I was Bobby Hill in that scenario back in the day.

The return of Chuck Mangione at the State Meat Grading Championship was a nice touch as well.

I've enjoyed KOTH for years. The scene of Hank shaking Bobby's hand was a nice ending prior to the final scene.

Bobby's going to turn out alright, I tell you what.

This was a really good episode! I really like the way that Abed and Hickey are at entire opposite sides of the realism spectrum, if losing Troy means we get more interactions like this between Abed and the other characters I'm down with it.
