King of the Hill: Lucky's Wedding Suit (season finale)
(S11E12) In my other King of the Hill review I mentioned that the secondary characters can be just as fleshed out as the main characters, and I think the same holds true for Lucky, who is still a rather new addition to the King of the Hill universe.
Lucky started out rather one-note, a kind of street-wise redneck whose only means of support stemmed from a cash settlement he received for slipping on a puddle of urine at a local store. This season, however, we've gotten to know Lucky a little better, and while I love his character, I'm pretty sure I would loathe him if he were an actual person.
Lucky lives by his own code, but it's a code that requires him to always follow the path of least resistance. Hank is able to look away up until now, but when Lucky decides to sue Dale for an injury that was entirely Lucky's fault, Hank decides to intervene.
I hated Lucky through most of this episode, but by the end he did the right thing and regained my trust. I'm sure he'll have other schemes when the next season rolls around, and with the addition of a new baby, I'm excited to see what Mike Judge and the other writers will come up with.
Ending with a wedding seems like a pretty safe bet for the final episode of the season for any TV show, but true to KOTH form, this wedding was very low-key (despite Luanne wanting to get married by a castle). King of the Hill never really comes out with both guns blazing, it's a show that takes its time, which is why it will probably never have the popularity of other primetime animation, but it does reward those who do watch it by giving them a cartoon that is just as real (or more real) than many live-action sitcoms.
This was the perfect way to end the season. 7 out of 7.
