The multiple identities subplot was intricately tied to the chinese/japanese subplot though, since his therapist was the chinese guy

yeah I would have dumped that Idea. I would have concentrated on the pyscholigist having mulitiple identities(though not the City Wok chef), and somehow having to battle each of Butter's identities. Really I'm wasting time rewriting their episode in my head, but we all do that.



It would have been hilarious to see Cartman being a sushi snob and making jokes that Kenny's family can't afford Sushi and Kyle not eating it because it's not kosher. I did laugh that neither oriental character could understand the other.

Was randomly watching the show on Comedy Central and I think I saw the latest episode. Hilarious, but it may as well have been a series finale. Looks like Trey Parker and Matt Stone are tired of the show.

Best episode I've seen in ages, for one reason: the perfect marriage of obscene and childish humour along with hard-hitting satire, this time directed at us viewers and the show itself. Brilliant.

I would only call the latest episode brilliant if it was the creators' intention to simulate what it is like to have the same disease Stan had AKA it was shitty. It was one bad poop joke. That's ok; They've based better episodes around worse jokes. But damn, they just hammered that joke in. It got progressively less funny, and pretty predictable. I like that they changed up the routine at the end, but it was trying to be dramatic, and South Park does not do drama well.

I think Trey and Matt dropped the ball last night with the developments coming out of Happy Valley. Like Cartman said, all they did was re-tool the old Catholic jokes.

For some reason my DVR didn't record it! I think its because between my GF and I we have a million shows on Wednesday nights at 10

I'll see it after it records the report tomorrow night (Why didn't Comedy Central re-air it tonight? Very unusual)

Anyway, I found this half-season to be TERRIFIC, much better than the terrible half-season that aired this spring. The first episode that concluded the cliffhanger from the end of said crappy half-season was only ok, but the rest have all been really funny!

btw South Park started their new season brilliantly with a satirical slap in the face to the TSA. It was brutally direct, racist in a very honest approach, and it dared to argue the point from a man's point of view that the lid goes up damnit.

then that would mean 6 great episodes.

what did you think of Butter's episode, I think it will end up a classic....Butter telling his grandmother she's gonna die is one of SP's great speeches.

Quoted for truth. I've had very, very short stints watching both Simpsons and Family Guy, I quickly tired of both. But I'm always coming back to South Park. This last run was great.

I'll never get tired of Family Guy, but I've stopped trying to follow its ever-changing time slot. Haven't seen the past couple of seasons. When it's all said and done I'll buy the complete box set. The way they split seasons over multiple volumes is just a way to get you to pay double for nothing.

I haven't watched a new Family Guy for ages. I don't think it's jumped the shark, but somehow the stories just seemed less interesting, or they focused on a character outside the family.

The Simpsons needs to crawl into a hole somewhere and accept retirement. I watched one of the newer episodes recently and didn't laugh once - they just don't have any normal ideas any more, and they seem to just be spoofing movie titles with most of their recent episodes.

I just learned that the next season of South Park won't start until September!

Since 2004, they have been doing 14 episodes of South Park a year - 7 airing in the spring and 7 airing in the fall - But starting this year, through at least season 20 in 2016 - they will only air 10 episodes a year, in one batch beginning in September.  This year's new season starts September 25th.

 

Gonna be a long wait!

South Park 17x01 Let Go, Let Gov

 

Meh.  Started out strong, Butters going door to door and founding his own religion was great, as well as Cartman's tour of the NSA and everyone confessing at the DMV.  But then it just went nowhere, the whole second half of the episode was really directionless.  Bill Hader as Alec Baldwin was funny, as was all the Shitter comments (sheets?), and Santa being the source of the NSA's information.  

 

So not a super strong episode but not a sign the show has rapidly declined either.  Still look forward to next week's new episode.

The laugh out loud moment was Butters confessing to activities with a cutout of Jennifer Lawrence. But leading up to that moment, I really wanted to turn the episode off. The downfall of the DMV religion was ironically funny. Otherwise it was a mundane episode.

South Park 17x02 Informative Murder Porn
 
Overall better than the season premiere.  Randy is always a guaranteed laugh.  I also liked Cartman's booing of Wendy.  Pretty clever the way they had the kids be feared for what their parents were watching :)

Well, I never got around to talking about the other 8 episodes of the season did I?  Oh well.

 

World War Zimmerman was really funny, with Cartman running around like Brad Pitt and all the Zimmerman / Trevor Martin stuff

 

The Goth Kids episode was alright, they may have run that well dry

 

Taming Strange was great, Ike going through puberty and all the Canadian Ministry of Health stuff was funny

 

Ginger Cow was awesome, loved everything about it.  Fantastic ending

 

I LOVED the Game of Thrones three parter!  Whenever South Park does 3-episode stories they are always great, and this was no exception.  Hopefully it was still funny to people who haven't seen GOT.

 

The season finale with the Kanye and Kim Kardashian stuff was great too :)  Every time Kanye had to call Kim to remind him how she wasn't a Hobbit was funny.

I liked that one too. Kanye is so ripe to be parodied. He's the most overrated male talent in history. I loved that they also made mention of the most overrated female talent in beyonce knowles. And as much as I like to make fun of all things hobbit, hobbits are no where near as ugly as Kim, and unlike Kim they are not skanky.

Even if you consider that rap, by its very nature is about boasting, Kanye still comes of as a self obsessed twat.

If the president of the USA calls you a jack-ass its pretty bad.

Ice-T getting slammed by Bush Sr because of Cop Killer gave him street cred.

Kanye being called a jack ass by Obama in between recordings on a TV show means no one takes him seriously.

Rap became a parody of itself quite a while ago.
