I have mixed feeling about this. On the one hand I’m sad to see King of the Hill finish out its run, but on the other I have to say the series was damn lucky to make it to season three let alone thirteen. You know, I was just saying the other day how I thought it was time to call it a day. It seems like the show, still razor sharp in the writing department and surprisingly character consistent, has just run out of targets to skewer. Recent episodes have been straining to find relevance and I can’t believe Luanne is still preggers. How long has it been now?
Here’s hoping they can top the emotional crescendoes of “Death Picks Cotton” from last season which could have well been a series finale.
