Comments welcomed! Check out my similar Simpsons, Futurama and Family Guy lists if interested. Friends and 3rd Rock clones are planned.

A few of the synopsis are from TV Tome's episode guide: http://tvtome.com/KingoftheHill/eplist.html

These are terrific lists, but you might consider sticking a brief one-sentence description by the top episodes. That way casual fans such as myself can know which episodes you mean, and then we'd have more feedback to offer!

I have a horrible problem remembering titles. I do remember most Moonlighting episodes, but they were often pretty cool.

My fave episode is the quitting smoking one...

Shalom, y'all!

Good idea, will do tomorrow morning!

The quitting smoking one is actually my #1 too, hehe - "Keeping Up With Our Joneses".


Wow, point in case. I scanned the titles, assuming that the word 'smoking' or 'cigarette' would be in it somewhere, and just supposed you didn't like it much.

That scene where Bobby is rolling around on the floor and growling while gnawing on a nicotine patch...

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Yeah, there are so many memorable scenes for me in that ep. The one you mentioned, Bobby smoking the carton, the flashback scene, Luanne keeping the cigarette away from the family, the ending scene where they've made the night without one.. the perfect episode. Anyhoo, I'll do the short synopsis now.

"Blind he's gone now!"

I absolutely love "A Fire-fighting We Will Go", it my be my favorite King of the Hill episode ever, great choice. Bobby goes nuts, returning Japanese 1 & 2, and The Bluegrass is always greener are other excellent episodes/choices.

Thanks as usual! Glad you agree. :)


King hill is the next TV series i'm looking to collect

Ah cool! How much have you seen on TV?

not many. its one of those shows i tune in when i see it on the sky banner. so i usually catch episodes half way through. i've probably only seen handful of full episodes but from what i have seen, i like. What strikes me about it, is that it isn't funny in same ways other cartoons are, its funny, but its like thats not its main objective. it's just a very well made programme with great stories and characters. plus i love the animation. i got some HMV Vouchers, so i'll prob pick up season 1 & 2. then i might get rest from play.com/playusa.

Ah good. Yeah, the humour is more subtle - it's more realistic than Simpsons, South Park, et al. Glad you're finally getting into it - it's a great show! S1 and 2 have great extras on the DVDs too.

got them today. well pleased, they were 12.99 each on sale and i had £20 of vouchers, so i got season 1 & 2 for just over £5. :):)

Good deal! Hope you enjoy 'em.
