King of the Hill: The Complete First Season [Impor

Amazon.ca

Tell you what: Whether King of the Hill can usurp the throne occupied by The Simpsons as TV's royal animated family is something for the Hank vs. Homer contingents to duke out. But with this fit-for-a-king DVD set, the Hills of Arlen, Texas, can emerge from the shadows of their Springfield brethren. Co-created by Mike Judge (Beavis and Butt-Head, the cult classic Office Space) and Simpsons veteran Greg Daniels, this brilliant series boasts an impeccable voice cast, bulls-eye writing, and the most rollicking theme music on television.

Unlike The Simpsons, which got a running start on The Tracey Ullman Show, the Hills may take a little warming up to. In the pilot episode, Hank Hill (voiced by Judge) is more a quick-to-temper redneck than good ol' boy. But as this inaugural season unfolds, he empathetically struggles to be the voice of reason in an ever-changing world where his substitute teacher wife, Peggy (Kathy Najimy), is forced to teach sex ed (Hank's spit take when the repressed Peg blurts out the word "vagina" is worthy of Danny Thomas), his son Bobby (Pamela Segall) wants to be a prop comic, and his neighbor, Dale (Johnny Hardwick), finds government conspiracies under every grassy knoll. But Hank is that sitcom rarity: A good man and father who is devoted to his job (selling propane and propane accessories) and his family, which includes Peggy's niece, nubile aspiring beautician Luanne (Brittany Murphy). For the uninitiated, disc 2 of this three-disc set may make a more favorable first impression. It contains three of the season's best episodes, among them "Shins of the Father," which pits Peggy against Hank's incorrigibly sexist father (when Peggy tells him that Bobby is a good helper in the kitchen, he responds, "Whatever you say, Hillary"). The set is loaded with features, from deleted scenes to episode commentaries by the series' creators and the characters themselves. Welcome to home video, Hills. We'll get the barbecue started. --Donald Liebenson

Format: DVD
Best:
1) A cartoon show about a normal family is refreshing for a change. People who find "The Simpsons" or "Futurama" (or ""The Family Guy") too wild should appreciate this leisure comedy.
2) Some of the episodes (mainly the first six) are extremely hilarious.
3) There are a few episode commentary tracks and behind-the scenes shows.
Worst:
1) This season is short - only 13 episodes (as compared to the usual 22).
2) The commentary tracks where the actor's use their character voices aren't very entertaining or informative.
Recommendation:
This series is a must-have for anybody with a sense of humor. The first few episodes should get you hooked.

In 1997, cartoonist Mike Judge, best known for his controversial Beavis and Butt-Head series, created a new series for Fox - King Of The Hill. The show tells the story of Hank Hill, who sells propane and propane accessories (and is unusually proud of it,) his wife Peggy, a substitute Spanish teacher who is very weird and has a high opinion of herself, and Bobby, their even more bizzare son who has hopes of becoming a prop comic. To quote Hank, "that boy ain't right." The family's neighbors only add to the comedy value. There's Bill, the Army barber who never got over his wife leaving him. There's Dale, the conspiracy nut. And of course, there's Boomhauer, the fast-talking ladies man (If you've seen Family Guy, you'll notice he and Quagmire are similar in many ways.) The series became an enormous success overnight. It was so successful, that Judge ended work on Beavis and Butt-Head to work on this series, and this series alone. To this day the series remains extremely popular and shows no signs of letting down. The first season was where it all began. The animation was crude and the voices weren't dead on, but it was still a damn funny show. Read on for episode summaries.
Pilot - A group of people are lead to believing that Hank is an abusive father and husband. They try to take Bobby away to live with another family.
Square Peg - When Peggy is recruited to teach sex ed, Hank insists Bobby not go. First appearance of Stewart Dooley (the red-haired kid with the deep voice) and the Strickland Propane building.
The Order of the Straight Arrow - On a camping trip, the crew accidentally kills a whooping crane (an animal nearing extinction.

The phrase you most often hear in connection with KING OF THE HILL is "It grows on you." When it first appeared, a lot of people (including me) were surprised that it wasn't as outrageous as co-creator Mike Judge's "Beavis and Butthead" or as fast-paced as "The Simpsons" (which co-creator Greg Daniels used to work for). But once you get used to the characters and get to know their quirks, it becomes clear that KotH is one of the best sitcoms on TV: funny, surprisingly touching, and with a great cast of characters.
The first season of 13 episodes is a great introduction to the show. The character designs and voices aren't quite as polished as they would become, but the actual animation is probably the most visually imaginative in the show's run, and in terms of storytelling and characterization the show hit its stride right away. Some of the best episodes are "Plastic White Female," still one of the best episodes about Hank Hill (Mike Judge) and his son Bobby (Pamela Segall); "Shins of the Father," focusing on Hank's grotesque, tyrannical father Cotton (Toby Huss) and reminding us of the strength of character of Peggy (Kathy Najimy); and "Luanne's Saga," about Hank's unseasy relationship with his niece Luanne Platter (the show lost a lot in season six when Luanne, voiced by Brittany Murphy, started to have a much-reduced role). And this was also the season that gave us such classic moments as Bobby's first kiss with neighbor Connie (Lauren Tom); Hank dealing with the horrors of constipation and healthy eating; and the hilarious "threatening" phone call from Dale Gribble (Johnny Hardwick): "You don't know who I am but I know where you live, sex ed teacher...

I held off on watching King of the Hill for many years because I thought it was a "serious" cartoon. I thought I preferred watching The Simpsons and Family Guy. But I saw my first King of the Hill episode this year and was blown away by how well written it was and the subtelty of the humor. The episode is the one where Hank's Laotian neighbor's mother comes to live with him and starts dating one of Hank's friends.
I was so intrigued by that episode that I went out and bought the 1st season DVD pack (yes, I'm impulsive like that). The episodes were awesome. I enjoyed everyone one of them. I had also purchased the 3rd season of The Simpsons, and the 2nd Volume (3rd Season) of The Family Guy at the same time. I watched through all of the King of the Hill discs first.
I have a feeling that King of the Hill will have longer legs than Family Guy. Family Guy is outrageously funny when you first watch it, but then you start to anticipate the bits. King of the Hill develops slowly and gives you a full 30 minutes of focused story, which is nice.
I plan on selling my Simpsons DVDS (except for 1st season) and I probably will wind up selling the Family Guy DVDs as well. I'm keeping King of the Hill and getting ready to buy the 2nd season right after I make this post.
