Last night was the series finale of King of the Hill.
Over the years it has become one of my favorite shows on television. I root for Hank's commonsense approach to life. I admire Peggy's confidence and I love Bobby's spirit and optimism.
It was an animated series but it never resorted to the controversy grab that was South Park or Family Guy. Smart writing and strong characters were its hallmarks. It confirmed to me that Mike Judge, its creator, has comic genius beyond just Beavis and Butthead.
I will miss this series having new episodes but I enjoyed its 13 seasons and will love it in reruns on Cartoon Network and Fox.
