King of the Hill - The Complete Fifth Season
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
King of the Hill's fifth season chronicles another momentous year for Bobby (Pamela Segall), who turns 13, is disgraced, but finds redemption, as the school mascot, and saves the life of a drowning pig at the county fair ("Not this pig, not today!"). Pitiable Bill Dauterive (Stephen Root) continues to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous misfortune, as his faithless ex-wife Lenore returns to louse up his budding romance with, yes, former governor Ann Richards (as herself), and he takes in a delinquent who takes advantage of him ("All the books about parenting are by comedians," he laments, "and I never know when they're kidding or when they're serious."). King of the Hill continues to fly under the radar. This three-disc set's only extra is a brief sneak preview of the series' tenth, and final, season. That's seemingly more effort than Fox's cracked marketing team expends on this underappreciated treasure. But check out season 5. When it comes to brilliantly funny character-based comedy, keen social satire, and virtuoso voice work, nobody messes with Texas. --Donald Liebenson

Now i live in europe, so i don't know much about American Culture, but after seeing five seasons of King of the Hill, i must admit that i have come to know more about America and i have huge interest in America and how the americans live and what they belive and stand for. Thank god that they are finally releasing this series in Uk. Maybe it will finally get the attention and huge praise it deserves.
I noticed that the animation has improved slightly from the past seasons, and that certain continuity lines are still carried on, like for example's Nancy and John Redcorn's break up, with John Redcorn trying to tell Dale and Joseph about the truth of Joseph's real biological father, or Hank's father, Cotton, and his new baby son.
I really love this series, but the reason why i am not giving this dvd a five star is because there are certain episodes which seem to be the same like others from previous seasons, for example Bobby wanting to do something which his father doesnt approve of and end up agreeing with each other, or Peggy doing something shamefull and trying to make up with hank etc etc. There are some original stories but it seems some stories have already been told.
For fans of this series i highly recommend this dvd, and for new comers i suggest you start with the fisrt season. i am sure that you will agree with me that they are better than that other animated family.!
