King of the Hill Season 5 11/22

http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/newsitem.cfm?NewsID=3828
Join "Beavis and Butt-head" creator Mike Judge and former "The Simpsons" writer/producer Greg Daniels as they mosey on back to the land of the Rio Grande, where Hank is wondering if he should vote for a fellow Texan in the presidential election. Later, while Bobby wishes he were older, Dale sues the tobacco company in an attempt to get money for his wife's face-lift so she can look younger. But the real horror comes when Hank gets devastating news about his birth and the future of his pick-up truck!

At this point we aren't going to get any sets with extras. I'm just happy they are going to continue releasing them even if sales aren't what they hoped for. Dual sided discs with zero extras is what we have to settle for now.

Sorry, but I don't buy Foolscreen. I'll wait until they come out in HD widescreen with 6.1 surround as the director intended.

?????????????????

Don't know what that is all about since it has never been in widescreen, not even the newest episodes. I am glad to see it coming out. I love the series.

There might be some extras this time. Maybe not, but I'm told there's a possibility that they might add some bonus material this time.

And season 5 only had 20 episodes because this was the first season of Fox's ill-conceived policy of starting its shows in November (so most of its shows had seasons of only 20-21 episodes that season).

After every season comes out, I am worried that it will be the last KOTH season set we will get, but then I am always pleasently corrected...
Lets hope it keeps up!

I was assuming this was a joke but if not then someone needs an OAR 101 class.

I'm pretty sure the kid with the OAR comment was just attempting to make a joke that really could have been in many threads to try and boost his post count or something. Irrelevant.

Anyways, this is great news. New KOTH in November, new Simpsons in what is it, December? January? Either way, I'm glad that these shows are getting a more frequent release. Nice to see that FOX is SOMEWHAT getting with the program, and on a regular basis too.

When I first read your post, I thought you were excited about season premieres, but I see now that it's DVD releases. Nonetheless, for those who care, according to this July news item at zap2it, Fox will have had all their new and returning series premiered by the end of September, with King of the Hill premiering on September 18 and The Simpsons on Sept. 11.

EDIT: Oops! I only read the chart. That 70's Show and Stacked will withhold their premieres until after the World Series.
