** Ayumuj: To be fair, it was mainly Kahn being an unlikable douche canoe in this episode. Although Minh was essentially taking advantage of Dale and his group to help her train for a skeet shooting competition for Nine Rivers she and Kahn would finally be accepted into the club, Minh started a nice bond with Dale and his friends from the gun club and she has to tell them that she's not going to be going to their gun club anymore after being accepted by Nine Rivers, she's shown (especially the next morning) to be genuinely sad and even disgusted at herself for taking advantage of their trust (Although Khan just makes thing worse for Minh in the background, claiming that they'll get over it since they don't have feelings). Thankfully, it all works out at the end with Minh and Dale's gun club buddies.

* Derpyhooves1: The series finale "To Sirloin with Love" started off fine with Bobby joining a college meat inspection team but it took a sharp decline when he accidentally loses a match. The team then treats him like shit and then sounds like they would kill him. Then at a restaurant they BLIND the opposing team. Bobby wants to quit after that and he doesn't tell Hank what the team has done and Hank chastises Bobby and pretty much blows him off to go with the team to the state championship. Then the rival team gets back at them by HIJACKING THE BUS WITH TASERS AND STRANDING THEM IN THE DESERT. [[UnfortunateImplications Overall this series plays violence of sports fans as comedy even when the joke would be that they are being physically harmed no matter how young (see "What Makes Bobby Run?" above). No one raises an eyebrow at this and its presented as a "fact of life"]]. Sparta had softer sportsmanship policy! It also made out Hank into being controlling of Bobby to the point that Bobby has to like the same stuff as he does to make Hank feel better as a father.
** SuperSaiyan006: Seconded, I removed my first one in favor of this. Yeah all throughout the series [[DesignatedHero Hank]] has basically forced Bobby to do stuff that HE likes and his way instead of what Bobby likes doing in order to make himself feel good about his own failings, and with him always being shown in the right and with this as the final episode it leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Everything Bobby enjoys doing Hank thinks its the Devil and improper and goes out of his way to ruin it despite Bobby having fun and enjoying himself such as the Christian Rock episode. As if its saying, unless you do exactly what your parent wants and likes you'll be nothing but a disappointment. [[SarcasmMode Great lesson there, KOTH.]]

* {{LSBK}}: "Beer and Loathing", notable for being on of the few if not the only times I completely side with Peggy over Hank. Long story short, Peggy gets a job at Hank's favorite beer company, there's a beer shortage and hilarity ensues. Except no. Hank completely betrays Peggy's trust to go get bear in Mexico, even after she told him he'd only have to wait 5 days, and then after they got sick from it he gets angry at her for not telling. Despite the facts that, one, she specifically told him not to go down there, 2 tried to get rid of the beer after finding it with the reason being obvious for anyone with half a brain, and three, him acting like if he wasn't in the same position (she said a confidentiality agreement) like he wouldn't have acted the same way. The real kicker is though even though all of this is more or less acknowledged in the episode, they still try to end it with them both being in the wrong. No, just no.

* Tropers/{{Demetrios}}: The episode "Fun With Jane and Jane." The cult activity in that episode was rather creepy for my tastes. Not Nightmare Fuel kind of creepy, fortunately, but still creepy enough to create a little bit of MoodWhiplash. Plus I'm sure this line from Peggy caused a lot of [[DarthWiki/WallBanger wall-banging]]: "Now now, Luanne, all sororities have hazing." Why do I get the feeling [[UnfortunateImplications not a whole lot of college students took that line well]]?

** Darkrage6: Peggy was also pretty bad in that episode, siding with Hank and somehow making Bobby out to be the bad person (true he could've been less smug about Hank not being able to do anything and he could've explained what happened to Peggy, but somehow I doubt the latter would've made her any less of a bitch) and Peggy tackles him and tries to subdue him and continues defending Hank's ridiculous actions, but the biggest WallBanger is when Bobby gets angry and kicks Peggy in the crotch and she doesn't feel any pain at all. That is flat out false! Getting kicked in the crotch is every bit as painful for women as it is for men, and for KOTH to imply that it's not is not only incredibly stupid but dangerous as well.

* Troper/{{Collectionchange}}:''Escape from Party Island'' was a mistake as bad as ''Sleight of Hank'', the plot is that Hank takes his mother and her friends to an island to get little glass " miniature" glass figures, which they seem to have an uncomfortably strong affinity to, which then hosts a rowdy Spring Break which causes Hank to worry about their safety and want to leave. The reason this was a DMoS for me is that Hank is basically treated like trash the whole episode by the old women he goes out of his way to protect and accomodate. Also, Tilly (Hank's mother) keeps excusing her friends actions, and doesn't ever defend him once (which makes the episode where she wishes Hank to defend her seem deeply myopic). A particularly bad moment early on is when they have cucumber sandwiches, and offer some to Hank, and when he refuses because he doesn't like cucumbers, Tilly " apologizes" for him and then seems to agree with her friends that there is something wrong with Hank not liking something they do. We also find out that during Cotton and her marriage, for a period of years, she [[AbusiveParents abandoned Hank to his crazy father]] just so she could save herself mentally with her little glass miniatures. But the worst is the ending, when Hank risks them missing the boat at her request for a miniature they forgot, and gets the Aesop that [[BrokenAesop he should be more considerate of his mother's fragile sanity!?]] [[FlatWhat What]]. This episode calls into question whether Hank really is wrong in trying to connect more with Cotton, since this episode shows her to be an even more selfish and unreasonable parent then him.

** {{Troper/Disney23}}: [[TwoWordsObviousTrope Four words:]] "What. Makes. Bobby. Run?". Seriously, it looks so out of place for a down-to-earth show like this. Here, Bobby refuses to accept the mascot tradition of getting his ass kicked by the rival school's marching band and he subsequently get branded a pariah and bullied by schoolmates, teachers and townsfolk alike. It was just very unsettling, especially the end where he finally goes through with it with the spectators taking pride at the (so-called) tradition. The mean-spiritedness and contrivity of this episode almost rivals [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons "The Boys Of Bummer"]] in terms of suckiness.
