Editorial Reviews

Product Description

4 DVDs.

With the Huxtables long gone, the Hills of Arlen, Texas, may just be television's most functional family. They are certainly one of the funniest as they struggle to appreciate "the little things in life while some big things are wrong and evil," as "sweet and trusting" Peggy learns in the classic episode "Peggy's Headache," in which Peggy is the last to discern that Dale's wife has had a decades-long affair with John Redcorn. Likewise, in "Death and Taxes," Peg is conned by an alleged former student, now a Death Row inmate, to unwittingly smuggle him cocaine. Hank, who is aptly described at one point as "a good husband with a good head on his shoulders," is the lone voice of reason in "Nine Pretty Darn Angry Men," in which he joins a focus group to rate a new "yuppified" model of his beloved lawnmower. At least he has come to terms with his son Bobby's desire to become a prop comic, and his wistfulness at the prospect of Bobby one day leaving home in "Hank's Cowboy Movie" is just one of many "sweet family moments" that elevate this series. The third season is a pivotal one for Bobby, whose coming-of-age misadventures include his devastating first adolescent crush on an older student in "And They Call It Bobby Love," a father-son hunting trip in "Good Hill Hunting," becoming Connie's boyfriend in "Love Hurts... And So Does Art," and marriage (don't ask) in "The Wedding of Bobby Hill."

The Simpsons gets all the glory, but I'll tell you what, the writing in King of the Hill is no less incisively brilliant, its core ensemble no less indelible, and its star power no less impressive. Guest voices this season include Mary Tyler Moore as the new minister in "Revenge of the Lutefisk," Sarah Michelle Gellar in "And They Call It Bobby Love," Billy Bob Thornton in "Nine Pretty Darn Angry Men," Buddy Ebsen in "A Firefighting We Will Go," Uta Hagen, Betty White, and Phyllis Diller in "Escape From Party Island," and, as himself, a very gracious Chuck Mangione in "Death of a Propane Salesman." Unlike the previous two sets, there are no extras; but who needs commentaries? Such benchmark episodes as "To Spank With Love," in which Peggy is dubbed "Paddlin' Peggy" after spanking an unruly student, eloquently speak for themselves. --Donald Liebenson

4.0 out of 5 stars "It was worth the wait, I tell you what." December 30, 2004
The packaging and features on Season 3 is not as impressive as seasons 1 and 2. The three discs are double-sided so you don't have the artwork on the discs. There are also no extras which, to me, is not that big of a deal although I know hardcore fans will be disappointed. I hardly look at the extras or listen to the commentaries on my Simpsons, Family Guy, King of the Hill, and South Park DVDs. To me, the extras slow down the release of episodes I want to watch although this set was advertised to be released last spring. Still, most of these episodes are great. It is nice to have a character on TV like Hank Hill who stands up for decency and for what is right. There ain't a lot of characters like him on television today, I tell you what. Anyway, here are the discs and their content:

Disc 1: Death of a Propane Salesman: The second part of the Mega-Lo Mart explosion cliff hanger from season 2.

And They Call it Bobby Love: Bobby falls in love with an older girl while the guys fall in love with an old couch left in their alley.

Peggy's Headache: One of my favorites. Peggy must be the last person in Arlen (well, besides Dale) to discover that John Redcorn is doing more than "healing" Nancy.

Pregnant Paws: Hank tries to get Lady Bird pregnant and Dale tries to become a bounty hunter.

Next of Shin: Hank's "narrow urethra" seems even more narrow when he finds out his dad's young wife is pregnant.

Peggy Pageant Fever: One of my least favorites because it makes me so mad at the overly conceited Peggy who thinks she's so smart and beautiful but has almost no chance to win "Mrs. Heimlich County."

Nine Pretty Darn Angry Men: One of my favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY HERE September 1, 2004
By MMAfan
ONE OF THE BEST SEASONS THIS IS. BUT NO EXTRAS. WHA. HOW. WHY. Well as lots of people know this season was supposed to come out early 2004. Well since it got pushed back to December 28th 2004 if they would have put extras on it would have come out till middle of 2005. Maybe it would have been worth the wait but I don't get this:

OVERALL this a great season of episodes and is really worth $30. It is really funny to watch over and over again and will be a good addition to your sets.

3.0 out of 5 stars DANG 'OL CHEAP FOX - NO EXTRAS? January 2, 2005
How can Fox treat an Emmy-Award Winning season of a show that is entering it's 9th season so poorly? Season One and Two brought us deleted scenes, single-sided discs with clever artwork, and hysterical commentaries...

Season Three treats it's fans to absolutely nothing, and that's NOT an exageration. There is not one single extra. No disc art, because you have to flip them over to see all the episodes. Hello? Is this the 20th or 21st century? This is a cheap excuse for a boxed-set. I'd love to return this set, but the episodes are so dang good...they're brilliantly animated, acted and written...unlike this terrible boxed set.

It's very sad to see such a brilliant, classic show treated so disrespectfully.

Shame on you Fox. Shame shame shame.

3.0 out of 5 stars No Extras?? What Are They Trying To Pull Here?? January 16, 2005
King Of The Hill has become one of those "like it or hate it" shows. I have found myself on both sides of the fence at one time or another but...upon reflection, this show ranks as one of the best comedies on television right now. It differs from The Simpsons and South Park in that it doesn't lampoon life so much as it presents it in animated form. The story lines are plausible for the most part (could a man walk around without shins, however, and father a child at the age of seventy whether or not he "killed fiddy men" in the war??).

This is a season that began with a boom (the explosion of the Mega-Lo-Mart) and ended with a thud (Peggy Hill falling to earth when her parachute wouldn't open).

In between, this stands up as the best season so they say on the front of the box "Emmy Award Winning Season!"...and it doesn't take long to see why.

Whether dealing with loss (of life and hair)in "Death Of A Propane Salesman", infidelity (Peggy finally clues in on Dale's wife's affair in "Peggy's Headache"...the last to know as usual), young love ("And They Call It Bobby Love"), cross dressing ("Pretty,Pretty Dresses"), sports ("Three Coaches And A Bobby', "Hank's Cowboy Movie", "Take Me Out Of The Ball Game'), Hank is still insecure and indignant, Peggy is still vain and Bobby is still experiencing the growing pains of a child who seems a little...well...different.

We see Hank's attempt to breed his dog, his struggles to raise his sperm count only to find out his father is becoming a father again, a lawn mower focus group, Hank, Bill, Boomhauer and Dale as the worst volunteer fire fighters you'll ever meet, Paddlin Peggy Hill, Bobby "marrying" Luanne, Hank's colon on display at an art gallery and Bobby burning down the church.
