Well it had to happen sooner or later.KOTH is the only network prime time show I give a rats ass about.The Simpsons used to be one too,but now I don't care if I miss an episode.KOTH averages  3 or 4 laughs a minute whereas nowadays,The Simpsons averages about 3 laugh out loud moments an episode.
Hopefully,before the final episode airs,Luanne will finally have her baby.

No offense to any fans.

I kind of enjoyed it for about 5 episodes, but lost interest pretty quickly.  That episode where they were playing golf and accidentally hit Kenny Rogers in the head with a golf ball was good for a few laughs.

I loved when Bobby was trying to do parodies like Weird Al.  Hank looks at him and says, "Bobby, "Weird AL" had one hit, then blew his brains out out of disappointment."  Something to that effect.  I laughed hysterically.l

I loved the show, the last couple seasons have been subpar. The characters are still great, but I am getting sick of the formula. Someone with a radical idea comes into Hank's world. He does not agree with this persons ideas although all the other characters are swept up in them. Finnaly the new radical idea backfires and everyone is upset. Finnaly Hanks level-headed, middle of the road ideals are proven true yet again and he is able to save the day.

Still 100x better than Family Guy though...

I guess I don't have much trouble with formula, as long as it works --

With my schedule, I never watched King as new episodes, but always in whatever timeslot my local Fox affiliate chooses to re-run, so I'm always numerous seasons out-of-sync -- ditto with my Simpsons viewing --

I really like both shows, but of course the quality is uneven.  Some episodes are wonderful classics that bear repeat viewing -- like when Peggy inadvertently kidnaps a child from Mexico -- and others I don't care to see again -- almost anything to do with Cotton:  I find him painful to endure.  I enjoy the new character, Lucky, who started out as a predictable con-man, but has since revealed levels of cynicism and analysis that were not immediately obvious -- again, I'm several seasons behind, so don't know even about LuAnn's pregnancy -- WOW, THANKS FOR THE SPOILER, DOOOD!!! -- Kidding! . . .

I also didn't like how Ladybird, the dog, virtually disappeared from all storylines.  I thought the recurring gag of Hank's unwavering, uncritical love for her was a great run-on gag.  I always try to tie my King of The Hill necktie in such a way that Ladybird's face appears just below the knot.  I'll repeat that:  I own and wear a King of The Hill necktie.  To work.

I have no shame.

Good show of faith to the 'toon, owning a tie and all.  And I mean that, too.  I agree with your sentiments about Cotton, as well.  He can grate on a person, although he's had a couple of good lines over the years.

King of the Hill is one of my favorite shows.
It jumped the shark a long time ago for me.
The worst was when Lucky was brought in.  He is without a doubt, one of the worst characters in TV history.  Why on earth would Mike Judge introduce a redneck loser who would sue anyone, anywhere, anytime?
I can't stand the sight of Lucky.   Thumbdown

Another thing I dislike about the show is that for the last several years, the animation quality has become "better".  By "better", I mean that the colors have become brighter, the curves of people and objects have become rounder and the animation is more fluid.  (much like the Simpsons did) It has a super-polished look that detracts from the show in my opinion.
I prefer King of the Hill in it's old style of animation.  It was better when the animation was a bit more crude.

And the storylines of KOTH nowadays are absolutely awful.
It used to be that I would never miss an episode.  Now I don't even bother watching the new ones.
It is way past its prime.  I'll be glad to see it go and just stick to watching the older episodes.

In the rerun episodes that I'm seeing now, Lucky has stopped being a sue-happy con man and actually is employing his smarts to expose other con-men.  Hank has put him on the straight & narrow & he's trying to man-up.  I hated him at first as well, but then the writers started adding depth to his character.  I still find the scripts I'm watching to be well-written.

I still wear my tie with pride.  The tie is right.

Hank wins over yet another radical character...

I like the animation in the first season, watching it now it feel closer to Beavis and Butthead than latter KOTH.

Lucky realized that he is going to have to work rather than rely on "pee pee money".I still think Luanne could have done a lot better.
I miss Cotton.The episode where he died had no mention of Dee Dee,or little GH.WTF?
