"I surely am not unfond of this DVD set, I tell you what"

"King of the Hill is one of the best T.V. shows around. It is hilarious yet intelligent with unforgettable and very believable characters (who doesn't know someone like the government-hating, paranoid Dale or the self-aggrandizing Peggy?). Like the first DVD set, Season 2 if compiled with a lot of professionalism and care. The extras on these DVDs are very unique and creative. My favorites are the deleted and extended scenes. There is commentary on at least one episode per disc by the characters or the creators that are entertaining and interesting, although the character commentaries are better on the first season disc set. The designers of this set also give the viewer an inside look at how animated T.V. shows are made through the "Animation Evolution" featurette which has many options. Other extras include The Arlen School of Drawing tutorial, music inspired by the Hills, and book excerpts from "The Boy Ain't Right." Season Two has 22 episodes which include the following: (1) How to Fire a Rifle Without Really Trying: Bobby discovers he excels at shooting but Hank's traumatic childhood may prevent them from participating in the father-son funshoot; (2) Texas City Twister: One of my favorites. Hank tries to save Peggy and Luanne from a twister headed for the Shiny Pines trailer park; (3) The Arrowhead: Peggy is intrigued by an archeologist but Hank is suspicious; (4) Hilloween: A fanatic church member tries to cancel Halloween in Arlen; (5) Jumpin' Crack Bass: Hank finds a cool new fishing "bait"; (6) Husky Bobby: Another favorite. Bobby becomes a model for husky boys...over Hank's body!, (7) The Man Who Shot Cane Skretteburg: Hank and the gang are humiliated during a paintball incident; (8) The Son That Got Away: Connie, Bobby, and Joseph visit the make-out caves; (9) Bobby Slam: Connie wants to try out for the wrestling team; (10) The Unbearable Blindness of Laying: Another favorite! Hank goes blind after seeing his mother and male companion "in the act," (11) Meet the Manger Babies: Luanne starts a puppet show.Episodes on the next two discs: (12) Snow Job: Hank discovers his boss uses an electric stove; (13) I Remember Mono: Peggy suspects her husband made out with a classmate back in high school; (14) Three Days of Kahndo: Hank and Dale must sneak over the border to get out of Mexico; (15) Traffic Jam: Hank and Bobby encounter a Chris Rock-like traffic school instructor; (16) Hank's Dirty Laundry: A local video store accuses Hank of not returning racy videos; (17) The Final Shinsult: Cotton and Dale are in cahoots; (18) Leanne's Saga: Luanne's mother is back and falls for Bill; (19) Junkie Business: A great parody of real life, Hank hires a drug addict and finds out he cannot fire him without breaking some discrimination law; (20) Life in the Fast Lane, Bobby's Saga: Bobby get a job at the Speedway with a mentally unstable boss; (21) Peggy's Turtle Song: Bobby is diagnosed with ADD and Peggy decides she must become a full-time mom to help him, but becomes bored and signs up for guitar lessons from a feminist; (22) Propane Boom-Part I: The Mega Lo Mart threatens Stricklen Propane. This one was part of that "Who's going to die?" cliff hanger."

THIS is why you buy DVDs

"First, I am assuming you already know that King of the Hill is an excellent show, and that Season 2 was one of the best. But these 5 stars have nothing to do with that - they are because these DVDs have some of the greatest extra content I've ever seen.
Nearly 2 minutes of extra scenes for every episode, great commentary, extra "books" on each DVD (for 4 total) that take ~20 minutes each to read - and none of this is junk, it's all positively hilarious. A lot of it is a little more "edgy" than what got into the final episodes - I think one of the best parts of King of the Hill is that it typically was *not* edgy, but it is still fun to see the deleted scenes that are.
Some of it's the little things - there's not a seperate tacked on DVD of extra features - the extras go right along with the episodes, you can watch an episode then see the deleted scenes right away without changing disks. Funny, creative and well laid out menus, great cover art, the list goes on.
There is absolutely nothing more I could ask for, these DVDs surpass similar sets from The Simpsons or Family Guy ten fold. I cannot wait to buy the remaining sets as they come out. Very highly recommended."
Best season out? Oh Yah!

"Out of all five seasons this is the best! This is the season were Peggy learnds how to play the guitar and Luanne makes up the Manger Babies, and Hank has to miss the Super Bowl! This is the only season that has four disc`s and the last season with disc art beacause of the double sided disc`s, It`s not like I don`t like them but i`d rather have disc art. This is the best show ever! Buy this set you`ll be happy!"
