Frequently bought together
The Hill family is back, and Arlen, Texas has never been wilder or funnier! From love triangles to gay rodeos, through beer shortages and Vietnam flashbacks, and from Mexico to Japan by way of the Renaissance Faire, this is King of the Hills craziest season yet! Did we mention Jimmy Carter?Its all here...and more. Life in Arlen will never be the same!
King of the Hill's sixth season, one of the best of this underappreciated animated series, is anything but "the same-old same-old" (Hank's euphemism for regularly scheduled Tuesday-night sex with his wife, Peggy). Fun-loving son Bobby (Pamela Adlon) and "nerd" neighbor Connie (Lauren Tom) break up (albeit amicably). "Renaissance woman" Peggy (Kathy Najimy) stirs up rebellion at the local Renaissance Faire. Luanne (Brittany Murphy) becomes the unwitting member of a cult. Conspiracy theorist Dale (Johnny Hardwick) discovers his father working in a gay rodeo. Through it all, Hank Hill (series creator Mike Judge) struggles to hold on to his core beliefs. It's not easy. "My wife lies to me, my beer company betrays me, Americans are giving Mexicans diarrhea," he complains in "Beer and Loathing." "What the hell's going on here?"
But not to worry. We can count on Hank, one of TV's few good men, not to waver. In the episode "Joust Like a Woman," a season benchmark, he is a vigilant father. "No tights, tassels, or skirts on the boy," he directs Luanne as he puts her in charge of the Renaissance Faire spending money, adding, to Bobby's disappointment, "Oh, and no bells." And he is a devoted husband, accepting "King Philip's" (regally voiced by Alan Rickman) jousting challenge to defend Peggy's honor. "No chump in a velvet costume is ever kickin' my ass," Hank declares. There's no two ways about it, as one Asian character looking for a token Caucasian observes in "A Man Without a Country Club." Hank is "super-white." In "Bobby Goes Nuts," another classic episode (and the sixth season is loaded with them), Hank beams after Bobby beats up a bully at school, thanks, he believes, to "good old American YMCA know-how." He is therefore shocked when he discovers that Bobby's been attending a self-defense class for women, and kicking his victims "below the belt" (while screaming, "Let go of my purse"). No matter how his sensibilities are offended, Hank manages to keep an open mind and heart. When aspiring comedian Bobby sells a joke to Branson's own Yakov Smirnoff in "The Bluegrass Is Always Greener," Hank is compelled to admit, "That is a good joke; it's Branson good." And this sixth season is great; it's King of the Hill great! --Donald Liebenson

Here's the breakdown:
1.) Bobby Goes Nuts
Hank urges Bobby to enroll in a boxing class at the Y, knowing Bobby needs immediate self-defense. The class was full, so Bobby took the women's self-defense class. Bobby learns to defend himself by yelling "That's my purse" while kicking the attacker in the groin. A great episode!

10.) The Substitute Spanish Prisoner
Peggy takes an online I.Q. test and is stamped "a genius." She blows $900, on a fake PhD through the online company. In the end, she gets her money back...in a cunning way.
11.) Unfortunate Son
Arlen's WWII vets and the Vietnam vets hate each other. But, when Cotton's VFW needs the dues money, they embrace the Vietnam vets. Although, it was a struggle to get there.
12.) Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret Hill

Thinking that the Army used him as a guinea pig (for an experimental drug,) Bill gets drunk and steals an Army tank.
14.) Of Mice and Little Green Men
Dale thinks Joseph is not his son, but an Alien's. Hank spends more time with Joseph, and Dale with Bobby. Lessons learned.
15.) A Man Without a Country Club
Kahn desperately wants membership in an all-Asian country club. Hank's the one asked to join, though. But, only as a token white man. Or else the PGA won't hold their tournament there.
16.) Beer and Loathing
Peggy gets a job at Alamo Beer. She discovers Alamo is making people sick but can't reveal it. For days, no Alamo Beer is available in Texas, so the boys make a trip to Mexico for some. Mistake. That is also tainted beer.

22.) Returning Japanese (Part 2 of 2 Season Finale)
Hank has a long-lost half-brother. Cotton plans to spit in the face of the Japanese Emperor Akihito at a ceremony honoring WW2 veterans. As Hank and his new brother try to stop Cotton, they see that they have more in common than they thought. Bobby likes a girl at the arcade.
But it's the incredible warmth of the folks in Arlen Texas that makes 'King of the Hill' so darned good. Hank and Peggy are all too human in their struggles, insecurities and victories and son Bobby is often as poignant as he is funny. Once you visit Arlen you won't want to leave.

PS. Make sure your DVD player is multi region before ordering!
PPS. For an added laugh, try a couple of episodes with the Spanish language option. Boomhauer talking gibberish in Spanish and Kahn talking Spanish with a Laotian accent are side-splittingly funny!
The audio and video is really good, no problems there. It's not your normal single-side disc. It's kind of like laserdisc in a way, where you have to take out the disc and flip the other side and put it back in. But there's no problems to that.
The case wasn't as how it is in the picture. It came like a normal case, like the ones you'd get with one disc. But, a really good box-set! Beware though, this is region 1. So, you'll need a multi-region dvd player to be able to play this. Shame this is the last official KOTH dvd release, though. :(
The discs are flippers which are a bit difficult to work out which side is which but other than that its great. Packaging is nice and compact
Series 6 and Im still hooked.
such a shame this classy and sophisticated series came to an end while other crap runs and runs
