just read an article on "King of the Hill" at CNN, celebrating it's 11th season. and Hank is still the same, Bobby is still 11 or 12 and Luanne is still 18. i used to watch this season faithfully on DVD until a couple years ago, when it just didn't seem as funny. still, i remember it fondly and one day i might revisit it. anyways i was just wondering why they don't make a series where the characters age. yes the whole "if it works, don't fix it" mantra goes, but we've seen the birth (and subsequent stagnation) of serials on prime time (Lost, Heroes, Invasion, Smith, etc); networks seem to want to try something new sometimes. an animated series in "real time" might be a good marketing gimmick. or has there already been one?
