It's clearly implied that Hank and the guys graduated from high school in the seventies, yet when Bill runs off to join the Army, the Quarterflash song Harden My Heart can be heard. This song was released in 1981. The episode "How to Fire a Rifle Without Really Trying" is about Hank being unable to shoot. But in the episode "Luanne's Saga" a skeet trophy from 1975 can be seen on the shelf in Hank's den. See more »

I'm gonna look for a man with a round muscular butt"- Dale
19 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After Hank's niece Luanne is dumped by her boyfriend, Buckley, Hank takes it upon himself to find a new guy for her, primarily because she just won't stop crying and keeping him up all night. But when things don't turn out as planned, it creates tension between Hank, Luanne and.. Boomhauer. Plus you get the first appearance of Chuck Mangione. This episode while far from my favorite of the first season still has a few laugh out loud moments and is pleasant enough, which is enough to recommend it.

The DVD box set of the first season has 3 extended scenes for this episode.

My Grade: B
