Product Description

"You gotta be real, Bobby. Get in touch with your white roots. So advises African American comedian and driving-school instructor Buddha Sack (voiced by Chris Rock) in the episode "Traffic Jam," and in its second season, King of the Hill mines this fertile territory for some of the funniest and sharpest comedy writing on television. But it's the pitch-perfect ensemble, led by series co-creator Mike Judge as forthright Hank Hill and Kathy Najimy as the formidable Peggy Hill--that also gives King of the Hill a heart as big as Texas itself. Hank struggles to be the voice of reason in a world that often just "ain't right."

In "Hilloween," Hank rallies the town after a lawsuit by a fundamentalist (voiced with hellfire by Sally Field) shutters the local haunted house and abolishes trick or treating. In "Hank's Dirty Laundry," the tenacious Hank is forced to immerse himself in adult video after a video store computer's false claim that he rented and did not return "Cuffs & Collars" sullies his credit rating. Hank may he hard-headed, but, unlike Homer Simpson, he is never a buffoon. His literal nature provides some of these episodes' biggest laughs, as witness his attempt to one-up put-down artist Buddha Sack in "Traffic Jam": "Your mother's hair is short, it looks like she's not a woman at all, but more like a man." In season 2, Hank continues to look for common ground with his misfit son ("How To Fire a Rifle Without Rally Trying"), and romance begins to blossom between Bobby and neighbor Connie ("The Son That Got Away"). But it is the throwaway moments that provide some of the series' giddiest delights. In "The Unbearable Blindess of Laying," Bobby is introduced to the Jewish idiom. "You said, 'You I like' instead of 'I like you,'" he tells his grandmother's new boyfriend. "That's funny." --Donald Liebenson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

King of the Hill is one of the best T.V. shows around. It is hilarious yet intelligent with unforgettable and very believable characters (who doesn't know someone like the government-hating, paranoid Dale or the self-aggrandizing Peggy?). Like the first DVD set, Season 2 if compiled with a lot of professionalism and care. The extras on these DVDs are very unique and creative. My favorites are the deleted and extended scenes. There is commentary on at least one episode per disc by the characters or the creators that are entertaining and interesting, although the character commentaries are better on the first season disc set. The designers of this set also give the viewer an inside look at how animated T.V. shows are made through the "Animation Evolution" featurette which has many options. Other extras include The Arlen School of Drawing tutorial, music inspired by the Hills, and book excerpts from "The Boy Ain't Right."
Season Two has 22 episodes which include the following: (1) How to Fire a Rifle Without Really Trying: Bobby discovers he excels at shooting but Hank's traumatic childhood may prevent them from participating in the father-son funshoot; (2) Texas City Twister: One of my favorites. Hank tries to save Peggy and Luanne from a twister headed for the Shiny Pines trailer park; (3) The Arrowhead: Peggy is intrigued by an archeologist but Hank is suspicious; (4) Hilloween: A fanatic church member tries to cancel Halloween in Arlen; (5) Jumpin' Crack Bass: Hank finds a cool new fishing "bait"; (6) Husky Bobby: Another favorite. Bobby becomes a model for husky boys...over Hank's body!

This is a review of the special features on the season 2 set (see below for my review of the season itself).
Audio Commentaries: The only "crew" commentary is on the season premiere, "How To Fire a Rifle Without Really Trying," by Greg Daniels (co-creator and showrunner) and Paul Lieberstein (writer). This is an excellent commentary, extremely informative about the production process and the show's style and tone. My only serious objection to the special features on this set is that there aren't more commentaries like this one; there are any number of other episodes that would benefit from them. One hopes that the third season will include more commentaries from Daniels and other writers.
The four other commentaries are "in-character" commentaries, where voice actors talk about the episodes while playing their characters. "Husky Bobby" and "Leanne's Saga" offer Peggy (Kathy Najimy), Bobby (Pamela Segall) and Luanne (Brittany Murphy) while "The Man Who Shot Cane Skretteburg" and "Three Days of the Kahndo" are commented on by Dale (Johnny Hardwick), Bill (Stephen Root) and Kahn or Cotton (both voiced by Toby Huss). The approach works better this time than on the first-season set; the actors sound like they're having fun, and occasionally break character to call attention to a favorite scene or actor. Still, it would be nice to have more "real" commentaries next time.
Deleted Scenes: There are 197 deleted scenes for the 22 episodes in the set. This feature is, if anything, even better than on the first set: by including more excerpts from the early animatics, it gives us a chance to view rough versions of scenes that were recorded and storyboarded but got cut or changed for various reasons.

The first full season of KING OF THE HILL (the first season was only 13 episodes) is one of the best. While the show remained grounded in small-scale stories and character comedy, creators Greg Daniels and Mike Judge expanded the show's scope a bit to encompass a wide variety of episodes: Farce (Hank unwittingly uses crack for fishing bait in "Jumpin' Crack Bass"), politicial satire ("Junkie Business," featuring the return of the "Twig-Boy" from the pilot, makes fun of abuses of the Americans With Disabilities Act), and even a mixture of comedy and drama ("Leanne's Saga," where Bill falls for Luanne's alcoholic ex-con mother). The characterizations, always the great strength of KING OF THE HILL, were deepened in this season; characters like Hank, Peggy, Bobby, Luanne and Bill emerged as three-dimensional characters who couldn't be reduced to a single "redneck" stereotype. One of the reasons KING OF THE HILL is so good is that it doesn't settle for stereotypes; an episode like "How To Fire a Rifle Without Really Trying," where Bobby discovers a talent for marksmanship, makes fun of the gun-obsessed culture but also portrays that culture sympathetically (Peggy: "Guns are the only thing keeping this family together"). And KING OF THE HILL is funny, in the best way: The laughs come not from random jokes but from the personalities of the characters and the situations in which they find themselves -- which means that the episodes are still funny on repeated viewings, because there are always new things to discover about these very lovable people.Read more ›
