I heard about the news that Isaac Hayes quit doing the voice of Chef.  Will there be someone new to do his voice?  I'm pretty sure there will be.  It just would not be South Park without Chef. 

I just can't believe that Isaac Hayes would quit because of Scientology.  That episode was hilarious!  Besides, who are the kids going to get advice and seek solace from if by chance Chef won't be on the show anymore just because Isaac Hayes quit?  After all, Chef isn't really on the show anymore.

Hey Kurt. Way to read the whole fucking page right before you.

Holy crap, you've been pulling this shit for close to three years now. Will you ever learn?

It looks like that very episode is running tonight at 10:00 PM.

Chef's gone, big deal.  As others have mentioned, he's hardly on anymore anyways.  If they are going to use his charcter in future episodes, I'm sure it will be to cut on Isaac Hayes or scientology.  If they decide to kill him off, that'll be funny as well.

Would someone please explain to an ignorant South Park fan who Mr. Derp is?  I only started watching the show regularly around season 7.

That's what I thought as well, but someone brought to my attention that Nancy Cartwright still works on The Simpsons despite "The Joy of Sect."  Although that episode didn't target Scientologists specifically....

Mr. Derp was Chef's annoying replacement in a Season 3 episode called Chef's Mama (which was later renamed to The Succubus). He would do stupid slapstick comedy to make the kids laugh, only the boys just sat there, looking at him like he was an idiot. After every joke, he'd go "Derp!" and laugh. Funny as a one-off character, but I don't think he'd work as a recurring character (and yes, I'm aware he had a brief cameo in Timmy 2000, but I don't count that since he didn't have any lines).

What the fuck? Explain the logic behind that - he was only on one episode last season, and I don't really think it made much of a difference to the show. Do you even READ any of the other posts here? I cannot believe you haven't been banned yet.

I was talking about this with a few friends today. We thought it'd be funny if they just changed Chef white and gave him a new voice actor without any explaination, or maybe even gave him a Micheal Jackson style evolution. Maybe its just because I love it when they fuck with the average casual fan's head(Not Without My Anus anyone?).

Matt and Trey were on Letterman last night (although, given the timezone difference between here and the US, it probably just aired there, or is about to air). Did they mention Isaac Hayes or Season 10 at all?

Holy shit. As soon as I read that post I turned on the TV and Dave said they'll be on after the break first guest. I'll let you know what they say after it's over.

-They talk about the Spirit of Christmas story, meeting in college, contraversy early on, the process of making an episode and the first six episodes, we've all heard all this before. Trey did tell a story about a sketch he did in grade six about a kids head exploding at the dentist. Pretty funny.

-They mention that Chef hasn't been a huge part of the show the last 5 years. Trey said that when they did the episode they were thinking "Well, Issac might quit over this, and sure enough he did."

That's more or less all there was to it. A story about Trey in sixth grade and a single comment about Issac quiting was the only real new information. Not much of interest really.

I don't know if anyone has heard, but Tom Cruise got Comedy Central to pull the scientology episode. Article here. It's a fairly interesting/funny read.

You know what's weird?  At the end of "Trapped in the Closet" (which I just rewatched on YouTube) Tom Cruise tells Stan "I'll sue you!  I'll sue you in England!" Reportedly, Cruise actually did threaten to sue if the episode was played in the UK, hence it not playing there.  These guys are really prophetic...

Also, wasn't there an MTV awards thing or something years ago where Cartman used Scientology tests to wipe his ass?  I read that somewhere a little while ago.  Strange that Hayes had no problem with it then....

It was a short video made for the MTV Awards that started as a Gladiator parody, only for some scientologists to land on Earth in spacecrafts (I'll presume this was a Battlefield Earth reference or something, either way I didn't get it, but still) and save the boys. It ends with them giving the boys free personality tests, then Cartman quips "Oh good, toilet paper." Granted, I can see how that would be offensive to Scientologists, but it's certainly nowhere on the level of Trapped in the Closet, which basically devoted 20 minutes to personally attacking the religion.

Anyway, Newhook, I read that article, but it doesn't seem as if Tom Cruise got the episode pulled. Even his publicist denied he'd made the Mission Impossible 3 claims, and Comedy Central's press release on the episode said that it was a last-minute switch as a tribute to Chef before the new season began. We'll just have to wait and see...

I assumed it was pulled because of the ad Matt and Trey took out in Varity Magazine.

Strange new episode info:

 
Quote
From the Comedy Central Press Release:
He's Back!!! Chef Returns to South Park


The launch of "South Park’s" 10th season is marked by the triumphant homecoming of school chef, Jerome McElroy. "The Return of Chef!," premieres Wednesday, March 22 at 10:00 p.m., only Comedy Central.
The town is jolted out of a case of the doldrums when Chef suddenly reappears. While Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman are thrilled to have their old friend back, they notice that something about chef seems different. When Chef’s strange behavior starts getting him in trouble, the boys pull out all the stops to save him.

While my instinct (and the fact that, by now, I'm very familiar with how Matt & Trey work) tells me that they're most likely going to do something horrible to Chef's character - this news article suggests that perhaps Isaac never quit after all? Then again, it is just an opinion article, and it's from Fox news, so I guess you can take it with a grain of salt.  :P

Depending on which direction they take this in, this episode could be really good, or really shit.

Wow. Just wow.

It's never a good sign when you can tune away for the whole second act and know exactly what's going on in the last 4 minutes.

And did anyone think the ending was really childish and immature? I know it's South Park, but the whole thing seemed like a really stupid dig at the whole ordeal. And more Scientology zings aren't going to make it better.

Well, you don't think anything's funny, so why should we listen to you? Come on evan, every time I've seen you talk about TV, you're acting above humor as a whole.

Anyway, maybe it was the lack of sleep, but I actually thought this was pretty funny. Better than all the episodes in the second half of season 9 combined. I was kind of cringing at all the child molestation jokes, I don't find any of that to be really funny(even if they were using it in a non-literal sense to compare it to Scientology) but the way they took all the sound clips from older episodes(you can tell that's what they did) was fantastic. Maybe it was stupid and immature but...I'm stupid and immature. Or maybe it's just the idea that two people with celebrity status and legions of fame and wealth are still stupid and immature(proving that some people still have integrity once and for all). Who cares. I'm not going to analyze it too much. The point was, I laughed.

I'm with the Lamp here, the ending may have been immature, but that's where I expect them to go, that's where I wanted them to go.  Besides, a mountain lion and a grizzly bear fighting over a body is never not funny.  I enjoyed it.

I agree with lamprupt. It's what I expected them to do too, and I'm glad they did it. I really liked the episode.


Child molestation isn't funny, it's  hilarious. Don't let those jokes make you uncomfortable. Cartman joins Nambla was ten times worse than this, and that's considered a classic. Remember, for good or for ill, anytime someone uses a social taboo in an over the top manner like this, lots of people will find it funny. It's obvious that it's not ment to be taken seriously. Don't be one of those uptight people like we have around here that explodes every time someone cracks a Newfie joke.

I can't wait to see the shit hit the fan over this one.

I don't care about the child molestation jokes or the thiny made Scientology jokes, it's just that SP has already had episodes based on those things that were much, much better than this. The whole thing felt like Matt'n'Trey had a personal axe to grind (which they did) against Issac Hayes and the Scientologist movement and everything. It just struck me as a waste of an episode.

I really didnt care for this episode that much.

The amusing novelty of using previous soundbites from Issac Hayes wore off about half way through.

Although the digs at scientology and death of Chef at the end were a little amusing...

I think that's a little different. That episode was flat out making fun of child molestors where this context was taking child molesting and using it to make fun of something else which I guess is harmless, but I just can't laugh at it personally. If it got you laughing though, more power to you I guess.

I'm sorry. I can't deny that I find chef sexually harassing children through old sound clips, the idea of a club who climbs muntains to moleste children called the "Super Adventure Club", or the detective molesting the doll funny.

I thought the Chef lines were funny because they took a bunch of old sound clips to make it look like that's what he was saying and ripped Issac Hayes a new asshole. The detective molesting the doll was even kind of funny. I just didn't really care for the head of the Super Adventure Club much...made my stomach unsettled.

I liked the use of old sound clips, and at first I wasn't sure if they were going to keep chef on by doing that (though that idea very quickly faded)

I agree that the child molestation angle was tame in comparison to the Nambla episode, though still funny. Good episode.

I didn't really like this episode at all. It was just plain stupid, and not in the good way that South Park usually does with episodes like this. Granted, it certainly had its funny moments, but they all wore thin very quickly. Quite possibly the weakest season premiere the show's ever had. But hopefully, now that they've got the Isaac Hayes/Scientology digs out of their system, they can move on and the show will pick up from here.

No never. It's only funny as a one time thing. I enjoyed this episode, but there's no need to continue with this storyline now.

I didn't rate it eariler, so I'll give it a solid B now. Great episode, no where near the top of the heap, but no where near the bottom either.

I think you guys should work on your rating systems a little. Saying something like you didn't like an episode at all and then giving it a 5 or 6 is being pretty generous in my book.

Even a bad episode of South Park is still better than most other stuff on television, so I'd never rate an episode a 2 or lower. I think I gave The Passion of the Jew a 3/10, and this was much better than that, so it would've got a 4/10, but I decided to raise the rating to 5 since I did get a few laughs out of Chef's jumbled lines. I usually grade on a curve, and given that I give most average episodes a 6 or a 7, I felt 5 was just right here.
