King Of The Hill's sixth season is another great and solid season from a fantastic animated show,filled once again with great memorable episodes season six has just what it takes to keep you entertained for hours and hours.The show started humbly but is now one of the most recognized and appreciated animated sitcoms on television.It is also one of the longest running shows in the animated category.Yes the show is animated,but it was aimed at an adult audience desptie popular belief that cartoons are only for kids.Season six was a big one for KOTH as they started syndication and it got moved back due to 9/11.This season sees many interresting happening to the Hills and their neibhoors and some important thing s happened during this season.It was aired during the 2001-2002 season and was released on DVD in May of 2006 and it is to note that it is the final season released on DVD as of early 2008 and we are more than due for some other KOTH seasons in my opinion.
In this season we see the Bobby-Connie relationnship comming to an end in "Father Of The Bribe",the rise and fall of the Dan Gribble Bluegrass Experience Band in "The Bluegrass is always greener" wich was an excellent episode and one of the season favourites.I also like the season opening "Bobby Goes Nuts" in wich Bobby takes women's self-defense class and winds up kicking everyone under the belt!Former president Jimmy Carter makes a special appearance in "The father,the son and J.C" as Hank and his dad aren't getting along pretty well.In "Bear and loathing" Texas doesn't have any beer for 36 hours,imagine that!There has been a few two parts episodes but this season is the first to have both those episodes in the same season,the "Returning Japanese" two part episodes in wich Hank discovers he has a half brother who is Japanese.This season as you cans see had some really interresting storylines and made an exciting season.

Unfortunatly its been nearly two years at the time of reviewing since season 6 has been released and there is absolutely nothing that points out an eventual season 7 being released.Fox,lets be honnest hasn't exactly treated the show really well on DVD so far cutting any kind of features they could have had and they don't seem like they will ever release more KOTH seasons on DVD.They said tought,that if fans want it to be released we should go tell them we want them on their website,i already did like many others and they haven't given us any kind of response yet.The only thing we can do is keep our fingers crossed and hope that they will release them,maybe if the sales of the DVDs were better they would have released some more seasons but it sure doesn't look great now.
This season continuing exactly what season 4 and 5 did,as it has no bonus features and each discs has a double side with episodes on each.This time you do get artwork on the discs unlike season 3.Its unfortunate we don't get extras as we did for seasons one and two wich were LOADED with them.The season is five stars but the packaging with no extras at all makes it a four.The best season?Its hard to pick one as there are so many greats seasons but this one has some really good episodes and each ones are great and watchable.I really wish they would release the next seasons,7 and up and i think many fans would as well.I just don't know why they haven't started to release them and maybe they just won't release them at all/All in all you can't go wrong with this season or any other KOTH seasons on DVD,its worth it and the episodes are amazing.There is no extras wich is a shame but the episodes make up for it and you have an incredible season that you can watch over and over again.Highly recommended for any fans of the show,a must for you collection truly.5 stars for the episodes but a four overral because the lack of extras.
