The BEST episodes of Mission Hill

Every episode of Mission Hill ever, ranked from best to worst by thousands of votes from fans of the show. The best episodes of Mission Hill!

Mission Hill revolves around Andy French, a 24-year-old charmingly lazy guy, and his nerdy teenage brother Kevin who moves into Andy's big city loft. These two couldn't be more opposite: Andy can never seem to settle on a particular job or girlfriend, while straight-A Kevin never gets a B or a girlfriend. The show takes place in the fictional city of Cosmopolis's equally fictional neighborhood of Mission Hill. It's a hip place full of diverse, colorful characters -- think Silver Lake in Los Angeles, Wicker Park in Chicago or Williamsburg in Brooklyn. Regulars also include Posey Tyler, the whimsical roommate who hides a secret dark side, and Andy's mellow best friend Jim Kuback who's well-connected to the hip downtown scene. Across the hall are Natalie, Carlos and their baby, who are, respectively, a painter, a professor, and an infant. Next door are Gus and Wally, a gay couple in their 60s given to loud fights and loud making up.
