King of the Hill is superb. You are in for a treat if you've never seen it before.

First six or so seasons are among my favourite tv of all time. Goes downhill quite badly towards the end.

Great characters and great heart, really stands out as a non wacky adult animated show.

I used to love Family Guy but feel like I've outgrown it now. The jokes are just not as funny anymore. Might be because I'm older or they've just become worse.

Is King of the Hill worth a punt?

Is this like when they do spinoffs like CSI:Miami and Law & Order:SVU? 

Almost fucking wept when I saw Mays was in it. In many ways, I'm Nilsen's 13th victim.

He paid for my breakfast once, so I'll not have a word against him.

Watched the last series of Episodes over the last couple of nights. 7 is an unusual number of episode for a series, and it feels awfully predictable in places. I don't know whether the BBC were as involved in the last series as they were the other 4 as it feels different. 

Yeah, I found the last series a bit odd in its pacing. Still really funny in parts, but it was like they'd had it commissioned then the the air date was brought forward so they rushed it all without much creativity - the last episode especially.

Still, it's a fantastic show throughout with some genuine belly laugh moments. John Pankow plays the unlikeable dickhead brilliantly in Merc, and Carol is one of my favourite sitcom characters in recent memory. She steals every scene.

King of the Hill is a series that is animated as opposed to an animated series. It could easily exist as live action but thankfully doesn’t. It’s one of the absolute greats. 

Whereas Family Guy is a series that should never have existed in either form.

I've been doing a few Christmas specials the last couple of days and rewatched The Detectorists Christmas special last night. Then fell down the rabbit hole and rewatched the entire of series 3. Simply a joy. Brilliantly observant of some of the best aspects of British culture. I'd go as far as to call it beautiful. I'd love to know how it plays to an American audience, if it translates or if they are left with a million questions.

I was wondering this when I bullied a Mexican-American mate into watching Bottom and she loved it. Sometimes they can surprise you.

I think it doesn't matter, good TV is good TV. There are plenty of things that have gone over my head when watching american shows etc.

I was reminded how universal things can be when Michael Imperioli started waxing lyrical about how much he loved the Royle Family on his podcast. I'd say that's probably the most 'British' sitcom ever.

Interestingly, from what I can tell the US is the only place that has the Detectorists available on Blu-ray. So it seems like it must have a pretty good fan base over their.

After loads of recommendations from people I watched the first episode of Stath Lets Flats and absolutely hated it. The episode had no real story, jokes or characters whatsoever. Is this just a case of a bad first episode or does it stay pretty much the same?

You're wrong, you bloody egg.

But it is a quite particular type of comedy, so I do understand why people wouldn't like it.
