Hank and the boys challenge their old high school rivals to a rematch in flag football, but a nose injury (and reconstruction) makes Hank hesitant to play in the big game. Rate/review here!

4/5 ..Another feel good episode. Hanks going out in style, wrapping up all his loose ends, it appears.
I actually really, really, really loved it.
It has that air of finality to it, and I like that a show that's gonna go soon is taking its time in taking care of the myriads of unresolved issues its built up over its run. It allows them to get the focus they deserve.
Like, when I first read the episode description, I was sceptical as to how it would turn out, but I was really delighted with the reuslts. The episode felt full, well-paced, and perfectly solid. Also: it was actually pretty funny. Especially most of the gags involving Dale, who was in top form here (not that everyone else wasn't, because they were).
It was a little cliche the way it played out at the end, and it's not like Dale's meta line makes that okay, but the episode as a whole was still so well-done and the very ending was hilarious and I don't know but I really, really loved it.
is this the last episode???
... No. There's still quite a few to go to last out a couple more months.
Loved it, definitely like where these last episodes are going.
Nothing really special, yet not bad. Hank has had incidents before where he became overly cautious following an injury, so his actions here were expected.
The episode was actually pretty enjoyable. Although KotH has been very tame for this past season, this episode actually left me with a good impression. Hank just being Hank...got to love it. 4/5 easily....A-
I am your big brother
I also really appreciate the fact that they are making an effort to tie up the loose ends. They are in turn showing their appreciation of the fans of the show by doing so.
4/5 enjoyable episode
Surprised it was so liked.
I really hated it. The entire story of the state champions mocking them was rediculous. Even more rediculous was Hank mocking them at the end. Especially after he said earlier "we'll show them how winners should act".
I did like the idea of them getting to play the football game over again.. But the whole feel of the episode; the music, the sound effects, the animation, the jokes, the characters. None of it was entertaining. None of it was King of the Hill.
Its frustrating that Judge and Daniels have both left the show from a producing standpoint.
It makes me nervous that Judge has so much faith in these Exec's that hes using them on The Good Family. I just hope Judge doesnt leave The Goode Family entirely up to them. Id like to see Judge as the main showrunner/exec producer.

"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."
That's odd, Swartzweldian. I thought it was a very enjoyable show, with more spirit and good humor than a lot of the recent episodes of KotH. The storyline was engaging, the parallel at the end at the surgeon's was well thought-out, Hank's character had some nice depth, and the pacing was solid. On the ending, it threw me for a loop for a second too, but c'mon...I can definitely see Hank and the boys having a little fun after 25 years of embarrassment. They are, after all, acting like sports winners typically do.
Plus, this was a very nice break from the "Hank's always right" theme that has gone through too many recent eps.
You didn't think it was weird that 20 years after some HS sports game the winners would taunt the losers every year? Not only did it not make any sense, it wasn't funny at all. It was just "weird". Especially when they went into their house.
Do you think Hank from season 1-10 would allow some people to come into his house without bashing their heads with a 9 iron?
I agree with you on the "Hank is always right" thing which we saw quite a bit last season. I enjoy seeing him mess up and learn a lesson - not just pointing out other peoples problems.
The concept of them getting a second chance to relive that football game is an awesome idea. However, it was executed terribly.
Nope, Hank from those seasons would have "smashed 'em good". But Hank has changed, and not in the "Homer" type of way that was done sort of randomly. Hank has had to learn a lot from being friends with Dale, Bill, and Boomhauer. A great example is the episode when Hank cut off Dale's finger. And it's those things in his life that has changed him, which just makes the show feel even more real.Do you think Hank from season 1-10 would allow some people to come into his house without bashing their heads with a 9 iron?
Solid 3. I never laughed at any of it, nor was I particularly entertained. Just felt like tying up more loose ends. It wasn't bad though. And I could at least sit through it.
