King of the Hill is better than The Simpsons

I'm watching King of the HIll and I'm blown away by how much better it is than the Simpsons (in many ways). It's not as good as the very peak years of the Simpsons, but it also is not nearly as bad as any of the Simpsons episodes that came after the first 8 seasons. I am a first generation American (my parents are from South Asia) and I was watching the show in our living room when I noticed my dad was really distracted by the show while he was doing some paperwork. He loved the show and said that it has some of the most realistic characters he has ever seen. If it has never had the huge following of The Simpsons, it's because it is a very dry show. That is not something that appeals to kids and when I was younger, I thought it was really dumb. But as an adult, I really appreciate the humor. Dry humor is very hit or miss and it needs to be done with precision, otherwise, it can come off as condescending. King of The Hill never condescends to its audience the way, say, the Lady Gaga Simpsons episode does. And as an immigrant, I think it's really cool one of the main families on the show is a cuthroat Laotian family. In other shows, the creators would dumb the family down by insisting they are unflawed and "pure" just by virtue of being immigrants and foreigners. Mike Judge makes the family both an American success story and he shows them as being assholes too (except for the daughter who is cool). Any other fans here?

They were both genius (of course, I'm only talking about the "Golden Era" Simpsons, not the past decade+). King of the Hill was much more of a character study, while the Simpsons was zanier and never got that deep. I agree with the poster who couldn't stand Bobby. Though to be fair, Lisa could be an annoying little SJW too.

R27, Lisa grew more and more insufferable as the years went by. Originally, she was the voice of reason. Now, she's just a shrill know-it-all. Watch that Lady Gaga episode where all Lisa does is cry and cry and cry about how sad and unnapreciated she is. That episode was like 20 years after the show debuted. It's not cute anymore. The Simpsons is just a cash cow now with no meaning or significance anymore. By the late 90s it was trying to compete (in a less R-rated way) with shows like Family Guy and South Park because those shows were getting more attention. It's been all downhill since then.

I agree. Mike Judge is actually quite brilliant. The show I have grown to dislike is Family Guy. It’s the same crap over and over again. Seth MacFarlane is an obvious head case. His hatred for middle aged women and women whom he seems unattractive is worse than Datalounge. He thinks if he pumps his face with enough Botox, colours his hair with black dye and pays enough young women to date him that we will all see him as youthful and virile. That bitch is afraid of aging and it’s painfully obvious.

The Simpsons had more mass appeal because the humor appealed equally to kids, it came before those other adult cartoons (and was a cultural phenomenon because of that) and because it was more willing to dumb itself down to compete with those other shows. King of the Hill is just a much more honest and realistic show in its depiction of lower middle class family life than The Simpsons is. After the first 8 years or so of the show, we are supposed to like Homer and the rest of the characters "just because". It's like the creators stopped bothering to even make the characters likeable or endearing in any way.

Oh man, despite never having been to Texas and don't live anywhere near there, I've loved this show since the early 2000s. I don't know how anyone can hate on it.

So many excellent episodes, some already mentioned here, some not. My favorites included the Mexico episode (if only Peggy had known what 'mitad' meant in English), the Japan two-parter, Port Aransas with his mom and her old lady friends (with Bill aggressively hitting on Peggy in Hank's absence), the mini-saga of Hank's coworker Debbie and her death, Connie/Khan Jr getting her first period while staying with the Hills, Peggy making friends with a woman who (unbeknownst to her) is a prostitute running away from her pimp (voiced by Snoop Dogg)*, Hank hiring a drug addict instead of a woman who he was attracted to, Peggy pretending to be a nun just so she could teach full-time, Hank using crack for bait, Bobby Goes Nuts, all the Hills can't stop smoking ("close the damn door, can't you see that I am knitting?").

Dale would absolutely be a QAnon loon today, and the only way he'd have been registered to vote would be under Rusty Shackelford - R96 is correct.

The show was prophetic at times: Mega Lo Mart and its effect on small business in Arlen (A, social media - in one of their final seasons they had an episode about MySpace (!) and one of Hank's coworkers was obsessed with it, even Hank's hesitation to vote for Bush Jr in 2000 (because of his 'limp handshake'). Peggy really did look like Sarah Palin, ten years before we all knew who she was.

There are so many quotes that my husband and I say to each other all the time:

"I say good day, Sheriff!"

"I'm drivin' the hell out of this truck!"

"I think I'll give room service a jangle and have them send up some étouffée."

"Get ready for razzle dazzle!"

"Are you Chinese or Japanese? We Laotian."

"You're not making Christianity better. You're just making rock and roll worse."

"What works for me, see, is the cocoa."

And sometimes when I have to put my name on a waitlist at a restaurant, I'll tell them it's "Rusty".

My favourite episodes are the one where Hank is sexually molested by a dolphin and the once where Peggy accidentally kidnaps a Mexican kid on her school trip and the lawyer gets her off by forcing her to attempt to speak Spanish in court.

The one where Peggy is duped by a scammer from 'The Intelligence Society' is pretty awesome

I picture every other DLer like Bill's dandy cousin.

Mike Judge is so hot he makes me weak-kneed. I am a huge fan of his work except for Extract. They're rebooting Beavis and Butthead, and it would be great to see a King of the Hill extended universe thing. Bless the Harts is sort of in the same realm but doesn't nail the humor and dryness in the mundane like King of the Hill.

The biggest dipshit I've ever met in my life hated King of the Hill.

I can not get into Bless the Harts...

Other favorite quotes my husband and I say to each other:

"That's it! I'm going fishing!"

(In Dale's menacing voice) "I know where you live."

"Awww, Chuck."

(In Boomhauer's coherent voice) "In a world where love is against the law."

"This is velvet, not velveteen. A gentleman must know the difference," followed with "Myyy laawd."

"That dang o' internet www dot click click click."

Texas here and I can attest that I've met all these characters in real life. I had a neighbor who talked and looked just like Dale and another one like Boomhauer and, yes, they all sat around in the evening drinking beer and waxing redneck philosophical.

and my Dale look/sound alike neighbor was absolutely Qanon before they were around.

R119 - that was a good one for sure.

Kahn sees the wedding over the fence and shouts to Minh: "It's finally happening! Bobby Hillbilly is marrying hillbilly cousin! Ha ha! You owe me $5!!!"

I ain't got a narrow ureety. He gets that from his mother. Mine's so damn wide, I could pass the child myself if I had to!

I watched the episode where Hank meets his Japanese half brother last night. I loved how passive aggressive his mother was.

R132/r141 I like you and your husband. You guys sound fun.

I almost wet myself envisioning you guys finding moments for those quotes.

And I’m still laughing.

Goodfellas for me, but I don’t want to derail the thread.

Dale goes to work at Stick Tech. I didn't realize Amy was voiced by Lisa Kudrow.

I love that about this show.

Sometimes you say “damn that voice sounds familiar but I can't place it,” other times you say “get out of here! That was so-and-so?!”

Love the times Hank thinks Bobby is gay.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
