I love how Mike Judge concluded his King of the Hill series, one of Y&H’s all-time favorite sitcoms. It didn’t end with a death in the family, a herd of cattle stampeding down Arlen, or a Yankee invasion of Texas. It ends with Hank and Bobby Hill working together over grills, the smell of smoked meats enticing the cast for a final taste of Texas beef. Understated. Perfect.

The funny thing is, Judge didn’t even intend for the finale to be the finale.
