    Rate/Review KOTH: "A Bill Full of Dollars"

    Peggy, Minh, and (for some reason) Dale watch Bill to get hot stock tips based on what he buys. Rate/review it here!

    Very funny and well done. I loved Hank and Bobby's reaction to the HDTV. This one was really current; it feels like it was written September 2008 or later. (I know it wasn't)

    Unlike MySpace which could have been written two or three years ago and been much more relevant.

    I enjoyed this well enough. Started off a little slow, but the unlikely trio following Bill around made for a pretty unique premise, and I liked seeing all the odd products Bill enjoyed. Also, the spaghetti sandwich looked oddly appetizing.

    I have to say that I'm tired of Hank usually having the same role in these episodes. Lately, he's been the voice of reason, and the solutions have always been so obvious that if they had just consulted Hank in the beginning, the problem would be solved in minutes. I prefer seeing Hank get into his own difficult scrapes and have to work creatively to overcome a problem (Jumpin' Crack Bass, Hank's Dirty Laundry, Aisle 8A), or intervene only to have a surprising reversal occur (Substitute Spanish Prisoner, Beer and Loathing). Having the solution always be "get Hank to take care of it" has made a lot of episodes end in unmemorable ways.

    That long-winded complaint aside, pretty good. The biggest laugh of Sunday night for me was Bobby's "Zoom out! It's too detailed! THIS IS WHAT MADNESS MUST FEEL LIKE!"

    I'm not sure why, but I really, really loved it for some reason - 5/5. Hilarious, I loved the premise, and everyone's reactions to the new TV were great.

    4/5 Just because I think they should have freed up an extra minute of time through out the episode to use at the end. It was a good ending considering that Bill actually helped himself. I just would have like to have seen something a little more.

    Peggy, Minh, and (for some reason) Dale
    The reason for Dale is that he is like Peggy and Minh. They are the non-breadwinners in their families with nothing to do in the daytime.

    I didn't really understand how the bankruptcy thing works, and I agree with TriforceBun about Hank always being the voice of reason getting a bit tiresome. Still, Hank's changing opinions on the TV was great, and Bill and Dale were funny.

    the fact that dale was involved for no apparent reason completely made the episode

    Did they ever explain why Dale was over at Minh's house initially? I guess they did become friends when Minh joined the gun club.

    I thought this was a darn good post-classic KOTH.

    And yes...I was completely perplexed at why Dale was hanging around Minh and Peggy.. I mean, they atleast could have had Kahn walk in and say "Minh, why are you conversing with stupid redneck!?" or something to that effect.

    Positive notes:
    Making fun of that Mad Money show was pretty good. Most of the TV related humor was good. Bill seemed to pretty much be in character..The ending was solid..

    I think Bobby was a bit out of character though..Kids(especally those like Bobby) should be excellent at picking up new technology..Instead, he was as confused as Hank.


    I'll go 3/5.
    "Socialism is inseparably interwoven with totalitarianism and the object worship of the state. It will prescribe for every one where they are to work, what they are to work at, where they may go and what they may say. Socialism is an attack on the right to breathe freely. No socialist system can be established without a political police. They would have to fall back on some form of Gestapo, no doubt very humanely directed in the first instance."

    Yeah, I didn't like the convenient treatment of the new TV. I know those remotes and settings can be complicated, but READ THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL! Look how humorless I am about this.
