Best episode of King Of The Hill
16 August 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I have a soft spot for King Of The Hill. Whilst isn't a laugh-out-loud comedy like The Simpsons or other animated comedies which audiences have been accustomed to seeing, it is an incredibly well though out sitcom and this episode highlights that. In it, Hank is determined to give Bobby a similar Halloween to the ones which he experienced as a child, however Junie Harper, a politically correct religious extremist played by Sally Field, is bent on banning Halloween because of its anti-religious motives. The episode raises a number of social questions. How can political correctness govern the choices of an individual in a free country? When do choices become personal and when do they become the responsibility of the state? And how does manipulation influence our choice? On top of this, the episode has some great satirical moments, including a great send-up of the Christian religion. On the whole, a great episode, definitely worth watching. It takes a skill to be funny and thought provoking and in this episode, King Of The Hill does that.
