    The Goode Family is a highly imaginative and often amusing variation on that one note.

    Ultimately, there's no substitute for amusing scenarios like the one with the dog, and clever writing, which The Goode Family boasts in abundance.

    If you passionately loved "King of the Hill," you will cautiously like The Goode Family. Tiptoe into it if necessary.
  4. Goode really does feel too much like the flip side of "King of the Hill." The humor comes from the opposite point of view but it's still a too-similar-to-stand-on-its-own comedy.

    The result, ironically enough, is a show that makes fun of all things PC and ends up being too PC to blister.
  6. The show feels aggressively off-kilter with the current mood, as if it had been incubated in the early to mid-’90s, when it was possible to find global-warming skeptics among even the reasonable and informed.
  7. Unnecessary, and close to unwatchable, is ABC's The Goode Family, a long-delayed animated entry from "King of the Hill" producer Mike Judge.
