A shining, empowering moment in the history of 90's TV
This seminal episode (pun partially intended) encapsulates everything that makes this show great. Right out of the gate, King of the Hill struck an almost perfect balance of warmth and positivity against an attitude of total misanthropy. It is simultaneously a lament at how the human race has crippled itself, but it is fully aware that were it not for that, the show itself wouldn't exist. It presents a world that is almost without any redeeming value but gives it to us in bright, inviting colors with characters that are as lovable as they are repulsive. The embracing of these contradictions are the core of King of the Hill, and are what make it one of the greatest satirical shows of all time.
