    I swear I have yet to see but one show twice. After seeing a second marathon the other day, and knowing that show is about a decade younger than The Simpsons, I've seen more Simpson reruns. Maybe that's just a coincidence.

    But it got me to thinking...If you watch either or both, what's your favorite episode?

    King of the Hilll - where Hank ends up going broke taking a cat he's keeping to a Vet that changes for all kinds of shit.

    I watched the first 4-5 seasons of King of the Hill but haven't seen one since. I can't remember all of the episodes I watched, but I liked about 98 percent of them. They were funny and biting and humorous ... much like the first 6-7 years of the Simpsons were funny and biting and humorous, and real.

    I loved the King of the Hill where Mangione plays the Gerry Rafferty song "Baker Street."

    Stampy is my favorite Simpsons episode.

    "I wish I had an elephant."
    "You did. His name was Stampy. You loved him very much."
    "Oh yeah."

    KOTH is perhaps the most underrated show on TV.
    Saw a rerun the other day where Hank was mistakenly listed as a female on his driver's license.
    Bobby: "Dad, that means you and mom could be lesbians!"
    Hank: "That's it, the cable is out of here."

    My afternoon is filled with reruns of KOTH. That's all I watch from 1-2 while getting ready for work.

    And the driver's license episode was on the other day. That's one of the best episodes.

    All-time best KOTH line:

    "Bobby, soccer was invented by European ladies to keep them busy while their husbands did the cooking."

    That's what I'm watching right now. :)

    Love the show. I could watch KOTH reruns all the time -- even ones I've seen before. Simpsons, while I love, I get tired of after two or three viewings.

    It would be impossible to pick a favorite episode of either. Both shows are great.

    King of the Hill has more episodes I don't enjoy or change the channel because they focus on characters I would prefer get run over by a wheat thresher (Peggy, Cotton and Lucky). But every episode is usually good for a memorable quote or two. One of my favorite Hank lines: "With voter turnouts at an all-time low, not voting makes me even even more American."

    The Simpsons is just brilliant.
