It was quite good. Dale's crazy idea while Nancy was gone was funny.
Don't mess with Nancy.
This wasn't as predictable as I thought it would be, and was actually quite good. Having an idiot husband, which would otherwise be mismatched, prevents Nancy from becoming a victim of her own success.
I enjoyed it a lot. Great development for Nancy and Dale, even if it was a little exposition-y at the end with Hank and Peggy mentioning it outright. This show has been consistently entertaining since the HD eps rolled around, and I say it every week, but I'm gonna miss it.
Once again the best show on Sunday night. 4/5 B+
4/5 A satisfying Dale/Nancy heavy ep. KOTH is going out in style
First time I've seen a new KOTH episode in, well, forever.
Pretty good to see a Gribble-related episode and see some Nancy development besides her old affair with John Redcorn (yeah, haven't watched in a while). Kinda knew Dale was gonna fuck up everything at home, but it's Dale, and it was still laugh-worthy. Bobby's subplot still funny and entertaining like always and was a nice jab at news sensationalism.
Yeah, even though the show's been better, it's still consistent, and kudos to the KOTH crew for keeping the show fresh and consistent from beginning to end.

I don't know..This one didn't seem to have many laughs for me. Not sure I chuckled once. The story was interesting, but nothing new, overly creative, or special.
I will agree they did show more depth into the Dale/Nancy relationship. (A little John Redcorn would have been nice) I liked seeing Nancy with her claws out, and it backfiring. Dale was nuts as always..but not in a particularly humorous way.
Worth watching, but forgettable.
"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."
Agreed, I'm happy there was no John Redcorn in this episode. It's nice to take a look at Dale and Nancy's relationship as just Dale and Nancy. Those two have great chemistry together and the episode really showed that throughout, like in the four-way call and the very end.
Very solid, pretty funny even if I felt Dale might have been a little over the top (though I guess that was on purpose due to Nancy's absence), and a pretty good little subplot that had a great tie-in with the main plot. I enjoyed it.
Dale is always a little over the top though, but in a show where a lot of the characters aren't, that's what makes me love him. Enjoyed his antics with his house more than seeing Nancy act like a bitch actually. Not a bad episode by any means though.
By a little over the top, I meant a little over the top for Dale, specifically.
Still, I guess if Nancy had been around she wouldn't have let Dale buy all of those air conditioners, so it still worked. It just felt a little odd to me, though I'm not sure why.
A better example of "Husband goes way over the top while Wife is out of town" was the Malcolm in the Middle episode where the same premise occured.
I just didn't think it was pulled off in a way that was particularly funny or entertaining. Character building is great..but it needs to have some laughs along the way to be worth watching (unless the story is very very good on its own..which it wasn't in this case).
Episodes like Reborn to be Wild have an incredible story + several LOL moments.
Found it slightly amusing, not the best in the season but amusing. Never really liked Nancy plots much to be honest. No John Redcorn? No big deal. They use him all the time to show the love triangle. None the less, it was just alright. Didn't laugh at all.
