Better the very last season of KOtH than even season 10 of the Simpson.
Looking over the episode list of each, I agree.

I live KOTH and I suspect I only get half of the jokes?

KotH does have a fairly high cultural knowledge entrance bar, I think. Far more than The Simpsons. Which might explain, at least in part, why KotH never gained as big an audience as it deserved.

The Boss and I are watching the episode where they go to Louisiana and stay with Bill's Williamesque family. My god, it is one of the funniest things ever broadcast.
That was a great episode, but I have no desire to ever watch King of the Hill reruns. I think I quit it before it ended, even.
Strongly disagree on both counts. Indeed, I've been watching old episodes the past week and it's been pure gold. It's hard to compare to the Simpsons because the comedy is different, but KotH is pretty close imo in terms of quality, plus it didn't have the horrible decline and overstay. The last couple seasons weren't great but neither were the painful senility of the Simpsons' old age.
Monkey Ass and Comic Book Drawer both watch reruns constantly, I just ain't into it no more.

You've gotten old, man. Probably still have time to watch old Matlock episodes, tho.

For reruns, I like Sunny and Futurama.

Have you thought of KotH? I hear it's pretty good in rerun.

My son has been watching them recently. There's some pure gold in there for sure. I would liken it more to Bob's Burgers than the Simpsons or most other animated shows. The Simpsons has always had a certain amount of cartoon slapstick to it which KoTH and BB don't as they are more rooted in actual human interaction, KoTH more so.

Where the Simpsons can be appreciated by kids and adults, I don't think KotH works for kids. Because, yeah, that slapstick aspect. KotH is more obviously satirical. But, lord, it was good. Even its last couple seasons were very respectable.

Bill: So then Cotton says, "I bet Fatty here can eat 50 potatoes," and the bartender said, "No way." Which of course was a terrible insult to the colonel's honor. Long story short, I was pronounced legally dead. But it was a heck of a weekend.
