Any King Of The Hill Fans!?!?

Postby BearGrylls » Wed Apr 25, 2012 9:37 pm

There's gotta be a few on the South Park forums!
But anyways, what'd you think of the character Connie (Kahn's Daughter) on King Of The Hill?
Me and a few friends are having a debate of sort and need some opinions! 8)
So did you like Connie/Kahn Jr. or not? Reasons?

Connie's alright. From a writing perspective she paired well Bobby. The nerdy but still hot girl gets into shenanigans with the care free, somewhat dopey fat kid; the intellectual and the clown.

It was frustrating that Bobby didn't at least get to second base with Connie. You know, before she realizes she's way out of his league.

King of the Hill was always just an okay show in my opinion. The formula seemed to be, "Lets put our straight man (Hank) into crazy situations with his idiot neighbors and boss and see what happens." Probably my biggest criticism is the way they did that show like it was just another 2 camera sit-com. They rarely used the animation medium to do all the interesting camera angles and play with the colors and stuff to take advantage of the fact that it's a cartoon show.

honestly, connie reminded me of daria.

the show wasn't bad overall, but in some cases, it was like mike judge was trying to hard to get past beavis and butthead.

I love King of the Hill...I watched it from the first episodes..By the time it started, I was already a huge fan of Mike Judge's, because of Beavis and Butthead..And, I didn't see it as Mike trying too hard to get past Beavis and Butthead..His humor comes from how his characters react to things around them, and different characters are going to behave differently.

I liked Connie..She didn't really remind me of Daria though...They are both intelligent girls ( which is super cool, I like seeing intelligent female characters), but Daria seemed more to use her intelligence to rebel against her parents on most episodes of her show..Connie rebelled against her parents too, but not as often. I kind of felt sorry for her, because her parents were telling her who to date, and if my parents did that to me, I would be pissed.

Yep! *takes an Almo can*
Yep!

Connie is just the girl next door to both Bobby and Joseph; I think a mistake was made that she wasn't actively pursued (is that even the right word?) by others in her class. Just that one episode where she went out with the son of the guy who was on the board of directors of 9 rivers golf course in order to help her father become a member of that golf course. But at this age she limits her friends to Bobby and Joseph her next door neighbors :?

I'll have to agree with most of your comments.

But why in the world did they use Connie so little in the later seasons? It's not like they over did it in the earlier seasons, Am I right?

the writers probably decided the character had run its course and put it more and more into the background. take a look some other shows that have (or had) long runs and you'll see the same thing happening.
