Sad news
Fr Jason Catania has announced on Facebook that ‘King of the Hill’ is being cancelled. Here is an appreciation (more). The (relatively) recent episodes in which unpretentious Hank naturally has more in common with his Mexican co-worker than the newly moved-in hipsters raising a fist and saying ‘¡Viva la Raza!’ at him and when Peggy nearly come to blows with Luanne’s snobby SWPL sister-in-law (today’s Hyacinth Buckets really) over how to bear and care for babies say it all. It was a celebration of common-sense conservatism: Mike Judge using gentle humour to explain the best and worst in American culture including class differences.
