New episode info...

 
Quote
From the Comedy Central Press Release:
Kyle befriends Willzyx the Whale in an all-new episode of "South Park" premiering Wednesday, November 30 at 10:00 P.M. on Comedy Central


In an all-new heartwarming episode of
“South Park”, Kyle convinces the fourth-grade boys to help him get his new friend back home. "Free Willzyx," premieres on Wednesday, November 30 at 10:00 p.m. on Comedy Central.

A “talking” whale inspires the fourth-graders to risk everything to return him to his family. With the police on their tails, the boys enlist the help of a foreign government and embark upon an adventure you’ll not soon forget. One in which the boys learn just how far you would go for a friend.

Sounds like it could go either way. No doubt there'll be some kind of disturbing Woodland Critter Christmas-style twist, but let's hope they keep it original.

It's called "sarcasm." I was making fun of KurtPikachu for pointing out something that was so incredibly obvious that everyone should have caught it. His "did you catch it?" bit was so lame because it was the only joke on the screen for about a solid minute.

Do we need [sarcasm] tags now, too?

Well, the version I got included the credits, and even if somebody had one that didn't, there was so much talk about the credits afterwards, most online South Park fans would've known about it.

As far as [sarcasm] tags go, the eye-rolling smiley is sufficient enough... and yes, I'm aware you were being sarcastic there, too.  roll eyes

Season finale news from South Park Studios:

 
Quote
"Bloody Mary" Announcement
This week on an all new South Park, Stan is embarrassed in front of his friends when his dad gets pulled over for drunk driving.

Not really much information, and like any episode, could go either way - though if it's an episode heavily centered around Randy Marsh, it's bound to be very funny.   big grin

However, looks like no Christmas episode this year... unless this is it. I mean, the title "Bloody Mary," while obviously referring to the drink and Stan's dad drunk, COULD have a Christmas-related double meaning. Something to do with the Virgin Mary, perhaps? It doesn't sound like a Christmas episode, but still, it could be set during Christmas time or something... But hey, it's anyone's guess for now, really. If not, it wouldn't be the first season without one.

Two Days Before The Day After Tomorrow
An alright start to the second half of the season, but nothing groundbreaking or original. There was some impressive animation as usual, but the plot seemed to trundle a long slowly and some scenes seemed to drag on a bit (ie Randy drawing the cock on the map should have been cut off just after the man started giggling; Randy noticing his mistake ruined the joke for me) 'cos they needed something to take up time.

The crab people callback was the best, and the man getting killed by global warming was funny - you can see flop around dying, and then he just opens his eyes.  laff

Other than that it was not up to the usual roxering standard I expect.  cry

Quotes

Gerald: Maybe we should... strip these jackets off... and warm ourselves next to each other!!
Randy: *breathing heavily* Don't be a fag!

Man: I broke the damn.
Woman: I broke the dam.
Man 2: I broke the dam.
Man 3: I broke the damn!
Stan: No, I broke the dam.
Woman 2: And I broke the dam.
Man 4: I broke the dam.
Cartman: *laughing* I broke the dam!


C-

Marjorine
What is it with Trey and Matt and parodying movies/social satire? Pet Semetary was a good movie, yeh alright fellas we get the message, but it's not strong enough to base the whole episode on. I had a better time watching this episode than the week before's, and I'm not really sure why - it didn't have that many jokes, so maybe it was just the way it ran. Basically all the laughs came from the Butters/Pet Semetary sub-plot, which weren't really that many - Butters coming back from the "dead" and his parents reactions, the "Dead is bettah", and the ending.

There were some really weird bits, too. Clyde's little monologue at the start wasn't funny or clever, just annoying.

I really liked the animation in this one, so that has something going for it. It also gains a mark for the weird look of that lady they try to feed to Butters at the end - she looked rellay funy!111  laff

Quotes

*the Butters-pig jumps off the building and explodes when it hits the ground*
Doctor: *checks pulse* He... didn't make it.

Chris: I'm sorry son, but you're demon spawn now.


B

Follow That Egg
Pretty Mehmorable. Kind of averagish, but not really a surprise. Pretty much everything I've come to expect for this season. Once again it seems they've substitued humour for satire of current events - look guys, I know it's a lot easier to just present your opinion in a neat little 22 minute episode, but people still do expect jokes.

The Governor was the highlight of this for me, I hope they use him again in another episode.  big grin The assassination scene was kind of funny, too. Still, aside from the Governor and the assassination, very yawn.  frown

Quotes


Governor: Oh, why do I have to make this decision?!
Garrison: Because you're the Governor?
Governor: I just wanted a big house and lots of respect! I didn't want this kind of responsibility!

Governor: You homosexuals will have all the exact same rights as married couples, but instead of referring to you as "married", you can be... butt buddies!
Instead of being "man and wife", you'll be butt bu-ddies! Instead of being "bethrothed", you'll be buuu-tt budd-ies! Get it?
Instead of a "bride and groom", you'd be butt-buddies!
Mr Slave: We wanna be treated equally!
Governor: You will be equal! It's just that instead of being "eeengaged", you would be buuutt buuuddies! And everybody's happy!


Weird bit - did I see Mr Tweek dressed in his metro gear standing behind and to the left of Mr Slave at the gay rally when the Governor announces "butt buddies"?

C-

Ginger Kids
Cruel world! I verily MEH you!  mad

Social commentary, yada yada yada, just skip to 'Free Willzyx' and save yourselves the trouble of reading this.

Jokes we've all seen before, but three parts were funny-ish. Cartman's rant at the beginning was cute, Kyle's "interview" with the Ginger parents trying so hard to pretend they like having Ginger kids, and the 'Night of the Living Dead' barnyard scene.

Quotes

Dad: Actually, the odds of us having a red-haired, freckled child were only 1 in 4! He he! And still it happened, heh! THREE TIMES! Haha! What're the odds? *starts sobbing*
Mum: A lot of people carry the ginger gene and don't know. If your spouse is also a carrier, your children can turn out like... them.
Dad: Each one of them's a blessing, heh!
Mum: Oh, yes, each one of them's a blessing!
Dad: Heh, bless, blessing full of love!
Kyle: But it's not true they have no souls?
Dad: *dramatic music* No... no, I'm sure they do....


Trapped In The Closet
Average-ish again. The "Closet" jokes weren't funny to start with - what is it trying to say? Tom Cruise is gay? Shit, good thing South Park is here to tell me this.

A couple of amusing bits - the "This is what Scientologists actually believe" bit, John Travolta going into the closet "Hey, it's really nice in here!" and the incredible expanding head of Nicole Kidman.

Quotes

Tom Cruise: I'm not in the closet.
Nicole Kidman: Then how am I talkin' to ya, Tom?


D

Free Willzyx
Best episode of this run yet. Plot ran smoothly, and probably the funniest too. The dead whale lying on the moon at the end was a great touch (I was expecting the whale to explode when it went into orbit) but I thought there were a lot of missed opportunities - the moon whale scene could've used some upbeat carnival music, and the bit with the Russian government answering the phone would've been better if they fought over who got to answer the phone.  hmpf

Great episode. Not perfect, but something from this half needs to get an A to shame Trey and Matt into doing something without political commentary/movie references.

I thought it was a pretty average way to end the season. It wasn't that the episode was bad or anything, I just didn't think it was all that funny considering the episode centred around Randy Marsh. Randy calling out to Stan in despiration still makes me laugh everytime.

Anyone else notice that Randy has been the centre of 3 episodes this season?

A pretty good episode to finish off the season I think.  There were a good amount of laugh out loud moments in this episode.  The Virgin Mary bleeding out her ass, the girl with elephantitis,  and Mr. Marsh sickly looking in a wheel chair.  Not as good as last week's episode, but I enjoyed it.

Did anyone notice the alien in the background for one scene when Randy was getting in the car to go see the bleeding Virgin Mary?  It was in the scene for one shot and when the camera came back to Randy it was gone.

Eh, it's been covered on a lot of websites. I believe The South Park Scriptorium has a pretty good guide to it... There haven't been that many hidden visitors in the past 2 seasons, though. They seemed to abandon that running theme after they explained it in Cancelled.

^In fact they are, and they also condemned that episode at the time.  I doubt Comedy Central will pull this one.

Anyway, pretty entertaining ep, and season.  But man, what could have been the show's best season yet kinda slipped in the second half, considering how great the first half was.  Only "Ginger Kids" was truly great out of part two.  Oh well, as soon as South Park starts to feel like it's slipping, it always rejuvinates itself and becomes as good or better then ever, so it's just a matter of time.

Wow, you thought Ginger Kids was the only great episode of Part Two? I thought it was the only awful one... Season 9 was pretty good, though the first half was much better than the second one. I'll give my grades for each episode as soon as I've seen Bloody Mary.

What exactly did you dislike about Ginger Kids?  I might've missed your review if you had one, or just forgot.

Mind you all the other episodes in the second half were good actually...I just thing Ginger Kids was the one real standout, which is a little unusual.

I'm not sure if I posted it here either, but here's a short review for Ginger Kids I posted at The South Park Gaming Forums:

 
Quote
Ginger Kids was a very average episode at best. The whole storyline was just a re-hash of so many running themes in South Park... Cartman's hatred of Kyle, Cartman's prejudice, Cartman acting like Hitler, etc. and these things are rarely funny. Seriously, Matt & Trey - give the Cartman/Kyle fued a rest. It got old TWO YEARS AGO.

The whole storyline was pretty much just a reworking of The Passion of the Jew, only without the Stan/Kenny sub-plot, and with Jews being replaced with Gingers/Non-Gingers. Granted, this episode was nowhere near as bad as TPOTJ, which I think is the worst South Park episode ever made. Ginger Kids DID have a few funny moments, but still, was just so predictable and formulaic for South Park, it really did bring it down quite a lot.

6/10

Anyway, I'm still yet to see Bloody Mary. Once I do, I'll post some more in-depth comments on Season 9 and grade each episode...

Wait.. .I caught the end of an episode I didn't think I saw before, one where Stan and Kyle are with a bunch of builders and they stop and say "This is gay... gayer than that time there was a big pile of naked men".... or something.
And it had a song about the future being for You and Me too...
What episode was that?  hmpf

I liked the Free Willzyx episode!  I didn't really like the Bloody Mary one too much. 

I liked in the Free Willzyx episode the realistic drawings of the kids, and those goof-off Sea World comentators playing a trick on the kids and and one minute think it was funny and the next regret it!   Plus, it was hilarious how the kids were calling space stations in other countries, A.L.F. people were beating up the cops and how the whale ended up on the moon!  Classic! 

So far here's how I rank this season's episode:

Two Days Before The Day After Tommorow:  A+
Majorine:  B
Follow That Egg:  A+
Ginger Kids:  C
Trapped In The Closet: D
Free Willzyx:  A+
Bloody Mary: F

Why did you hate Bloody Mary so much? I thought it was pretty average, but far from bad.

Best to worst for the second half of 9:

1) Free Willzyx- Loved it. The ending is what made the episode.

2) Majorine- Nice to have a episode where the kids are just kids every now and then.

3) Trapped in the Closet- I think I'm more fond of it then others because me and my girlfriend are constantly yelling R. Kelly's lines at eachother.

4) Two Days Before The Day After Tomorrow- Great movie parody.

5) Follow That Egg- Actually had something very politically relevent to say. I didn't think calling a gay marriage a civil union was that big a thing to be upset about till the whole butt buddies speech.

6) Bloody Mary- Wasn't bad, had some good lines, I just didn't laugh a lot.

7) Ginger Kids- Had a been, there done that feel to it. I thought it kinda recycled a bunch of older plots and ideas to form a filler episode. There's usually one or two a season(A Little Bit Country, Douche & Turd, etc.).

Just saw Bloody Mary. Nothing special, lacked in laughs and had no real direction story-wise. A disappointing end to what could've been a great season.

Anyway, my grades. Some may have changed from my original grades for them, with repeat viewings and all:
Mr. Garrison's Fancy New Vagina: A-
Die, Hippie, Die: B
Wing: A-
Best Friends Forever: B+
The Losing Edge: C+
The Death of Eric Cartman: B+
Erection Day: B+
Two Days Before The Day After Tomorrow: A-
Marjorine: B
Follow That Egg: B+
Ginger Kids: C-
Trapped in the Closet: C
Free Willzyx: B
Bloody Mary: C

This season was a rare thing in South Park: A season where the first half is better than the second half. There were plenty of funny moments thoughout it, but nothing too special... Altogether, it felt like a re-hash of every old episode combined into one season. Every style episode was covered at some point (eg. 901 was an insane, nonsensical episode, 903 was a great story-based episode, 904 was a good satricial episode, 905 was a typical one-joke episode, 906 was this season's "Cartman pulls an eleborate prank on Butters" episode, 912 was this season's "Dedicate an entire episode towards slamming a religion" episode, etc.). It wasn't a bad season in any way - in fact, it probably would be a great season to show to people who are new to the show and aren't aware of its formulas - but for us hardcore fans, it didn't have a lot to offer. Still, it was very entertaining. Here's my official season rank, from best to worst:
Season 6
Season 7
Season 8
Season 9
Season 3
Season 1
Season 2
Season 4
Season 5

Hopefully they can pick it up next year. South Park's big turnaround in Season 6 was thanks to the show re-inventing itself when it became old and formulaic, hopefully another re-invention like this won't be too far off - especially since we have a guarantee of at least 3 more seasons ahead of us. Either way, South Park still remains the best animated show currently on TV, and I look forward to Season 10.  smile

On a side note, congratulations to the South Park staff for FINALLY getting a season which aired in production order.  tongue
