Anyway, this season is getting into off to a good start. I only saw the last part of TDBTDAT, but the other episode was hilarious.

Well, I have posted the review on a few other sites too, you might have read it at one of them...

Anyway, Marjorine was decent. Nothing too funny, but I loved the way the storylines came together. The ending seemed a bit too abrupt for my liking, though. They wrote on SP Studios that it was originally intended to be a two-parter... maybe that would've been a good idea, looking at the way it ended. Eh, I don't know though. Either way, the rest of it was decent.

Follow That Egg
Mrs. Garrison’s “ex” plans to marry his new love as soon as the Governor signs the bill allowing gay marriage in Colorado in an all new episode of "South Park," entitled "Follow That Egg!," premiering Wednesday, November 2 at 10:00 p.m. on Comedy Central. As Slave and Big Gay Al prepare to marry, the townspeople of South Park rally the Governor to outlaw gay marriage.

In a fit of jealously, Mrs. Garrison develops his own case study using the kids to prove that same sex couples cannot care for a child. The boys are determined to get an “A” on their class assignment and Mrs. Garrison is just as committed to seeing they fail

Mr. Slave and Big Gay Al make their return. Hell yes.

I thought the episode was pretty funny. And of course, it's good to see Kenny back.

Did it seem short to anyone else? It seemed as if it was building to something big and then nothing happened...

Well anyway, it wasnt as good as last weeks, but it was okay...

I liked "Marjorine" a lot more than "Two Days After..." for the simple reason that it was a complete story and not some poorly-hammered together bits on what Matt and Trey think of current events. IMO, the episodes that directly corospond with specific current issues are always the weakest for me.

Whereas "Marjorine" had a complete story, with characterization and jokes and everything. I loved Butters being back from the dead and how easy his father kills to "feed" his son. To top it off, how the one farmer just wanders into the house to tell them specifically *not* to bury Butters in the Pet Semetary was classically funny. As for the "A" story, I like when the boys are portrayed as boys, and not objects for political commentary. As a kid, I was fascinated with those fortune tellers (in fact, I made one after the show). It just shows that yes, you can make solid jokes out of kids being kids, without them dealing with the end of the world constantly.

See the thing is that while many South Park episodes are based on current events, they're not reliant on them. Look at "Best Friends Forever". Though it's based on the Terri Shivo fiasco, the episode makes no specific mention of it and is more or less self contained. "The Day Before The Day After Tomorrow" was like this as well, it was based on a current event, but didn't use it as a crutch. That's not to say that there aren't some episodes too dependent on current events "Douche and Turd", and "Butters' Very Own Episode"(Despite the fact that I liked it) are perfect examples of episodes that relied too much on current events. If you watch them in 20 years time, the won't have the same impact as they did when they aired. Just my two cents.
 
I understand your gripe with the idea that the boys are sometimes used as vechiles for satire, but if you look at "The Day Before The Day After Tomorrow", they really didn't do anything a couple of smarter than average 10 year old boys couldn't, the adults were just portrayed as being really dumb.

Anyway, twas a pretty good episode, not the funniest ever, but well directed. Favourite line was either, "Can I just have some spagetti o's" or "Damn, Ken".

I loved the idea that the boys thought the little paper fortune catcher was some magical device that the girls possessed, and decided to destroy it because of it's awesome power.

Wasn't much I didn't like. As I said, it wasn't the funniest episode ever, but it was well written and directed.

That's only because Arrested Development has continuing storylines, and some people don't like them to be spoiled. Nobody here gives a shit if upcoming storylines are revealed, at least with South Park anyway, since the storylines aren't why people watch the show. And it's nothing you wouldnt see on any other SP site anyway.

Besides, not that it matters, Newhook_1 already posted that. 5th post on this page.

The egg episode wasn't as good as I thought it was going to be. It wasn't that good of an at episode it was kinda crapy. There was about one or two things I found funny that was it. There's been a lot of over the top silly episodes lately. There geting to be more like the new simpsons episodes kinda.

How is "over the top-silly" even a genuine complaint with South Park?  In the very first episode a radar dish shoots out of Cartman's ass.

Thought it was a pretty good episode, though this second half of the season isn't as good as the first half.  But how can one not laugh at Mr./Mrs. Garrison trying to get all the students to call the egg a "freak egg"?  I mean that's just comedy gold.

{ersonally, I was just glad to see BGA again, though he didn't do much.  Then again, he didn't really do much in the first place.

I have a question though:
 
Quote
Stan: As a matter of fact, I believe it's the nicest hat I've ever known.
I know this is a reference to something, but I can't figure out what and it's driving me nuts.

I give this episode a B-/C+, but can't be bothered to do a full review.  Basically, it was pretty average except for Mrs. Garrison's bitchy, outraged ranting and random crappy singing.

I liked it, best ep of the run so far. I loved Mr.Garrison's ripping on Stan and Kyle's egg too and the assassin blowing up people in the crowd just to get the egg.

Goes to show you that Butters and Cartman are not the life vein of the show like so many make them out to be.

Well, I don't know about on the Emerald Isle, but it's on the ballot for a state constitutional amendment in Texas (despite the fact that it's already illegal) and in several other states (whether as an amendment or as a law that requires a referendum) next week.

I quite enjoyed Follow That Egg, although I would've liked to have seen more of Mr. Slave and Big Gay Al. For an episode where they were so important to the storyline, they were hardly in it at all. The episode was also paced quite nicely, and it was good to see that the story we were left off at in Raisins actually went somewhere - though what happened to Token?

I wouldn't say it lacked humour. A few good laughs scattered throughout. The bit where Stan's egg was "assassinated" was really funny to me for some reason. Just how he's just sitting there and a red crosshair appears on his egg from out of nowhere... Though I'd have to say the funniest bit was when Mrs. Garrison was trying to get everyone to rip on Stan's egg. That was just pure hilarious. "Look at the freak egg!"  laff

From the Comedy Central Press Release:
Cartman suffers from Gingervitus in an all-new episode of South Park premiering Wednesday, November 9 at 10:00P.M. on Comedy Central




EPISODE 911: "Ginger Kids"
In his classroom presentation, Cartman points to people with red hair, light skin and freckles as an inferior race in an all new episode of "South Park," entitled "Ginger Kids," premiering Wednesday, November 9 at 10:00 p.m. on Comedy Central. Cartman thinks differently when, one morning, he himself wakes up with an advanced case of Gingervitus! Unable to endure being ostracized for his looks, he rallies all Ginger Kids everywhere to fight discrimination.

Well... that sounds... weird. Not too sure about this storyline at all. Still, I'll wait until I see it to judge.
