King of the Hill: Edu-macating Lucky (finale)

king of the hill(S10E15) Since this season ended with Luanne getting pregnant, I assume we'll be seeing a new addition to the cast of King of the Hill come next season.

Other than Luanne's announcement that she's pregnant with Lucky's (played by Tom Petty) child, the rest of the episode was rather low key. Peggy, always a tad naive, believes Luann could realize her true potential and really make something of her life if she just applied herself and didn't keep falling for dumb rednecks like Lucky. Hank isn't especially fond of Lucky at first, either, but eventually he realizes that despite his exterior, Lucky does actually have a sense of right and wrong, even if his morals are wrapped up in an odd "code of honor" which makes him return shaving cream he borrowed from Hank in a baggy. Also, Lucky feels he can't marry Luanne without his GED. Unfortunately, Peggy sabotages his chance by teaching him the wrong stuff.

I liked this episode because it was one of those that made you rethink what you knew about the characters. You might have expected Hank to dislike Lucky, but instead Hank has a kind of respect for the guy. He also has a more realistic approach when it comes to Luanne, and sees her as a simple girl with a simple approach to the world. While marrying Lucky may seem like a step down in Peggy's eyes, Hank sees it as making perfect sense for both Lucky and Luanne. If nothing else, I'm looking forward to more Lucky next season. I think Tom Petty's lazy drawl captures the character perfectly. Based on the few things I've seen Petty "act" in, I haven't been that impressed, but this character fits him perfectly.
