And so was born one of the best cartoons of the last 50 years
17 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this first episode, we're introduced to Hank Hill, staunch Republican Texan family-man and Propane salesman, his family: son Bobby and wife Peggy, and his friends Boomhauer, Bill, and Dale. When Bobby gets hit with a baseball while playing the game and gets a black eye, people start gossiping that he got the bruise from Hank, which leads to a Child Protective Services 'twig boy' to start coming around. I remember watching this show and getting a kick out of it. Here was a man, Hank, who seemed to be speaking from a viewpoint that was all too infrequently spoken from on TV shows. It endeared me to the show right of the bat.

My Grade: A

The DVD of Season 1 has 2 extended scenes for this episode as well as Commentary by Co-creator Greg Daniels
