Some achievements you just don’t want to get.
King of the Hill is one of those shows that has limited appeal: it’s too nuanced and has a very specific flavor. I personally love it: it has a lot of heart, great characters (freaking Peggy) and a relaxing quality you can’t find anywhere else. The real achievement comes from the fact that the series never really wavered in terms of quality, which for such a long running show is quite admirable. It was our go-to series when we couldn’t figure out what to watch next, as it was always guaranteed entertainment.
We finally got around to watch the last episodes (during its original run I only got to watch until season 8 ) and now it’s over. Sigh. Here’s to you, Mike Judge: may the new iteration of Beavis and Butthead have the success you deserve.
