Mohammad should be a recurring character, travelling the land, giving salmon helmets to everyone and drinking tea.

Yeah, Parker and Stone have said that before.  Apparently they met Mike Judge really early on and Judge gave them advice and let them know what going to happen (that the show would get really big and everything would seem crazy, and then the popularity would go down a lot, and then they'd do a movie), and they became friends.  They also had Judge do Kenny's unhooded voice in the film.  I don't think Parker and Stone have every commented directly on KOTH though.

Well, when referring to other animated shows, they'll normally give "The Simpsons or King of the Hill" as an example, so that leads me to believe they class it up there with The Simpsons, which they have praised at times.

Why the fuck is mrtwig.net down? It's been down every week momentarily after every season 10 ep but it's been down for a while now.

Actually I dont think the footage was pulled, Matt and Trey knew before making the episode that CC wouldn't allow them to show Muhhamid so they built the episode around that and took a dig at CC, it wasn't just pulled at the last minute.
I knew after Kyle said "either its all ok or none of it is" that they were going to censor out Muhhamid, it wouldn't have been as funny if they had shown Muhhamid

Some official information on the Muhammad censoring here. In short:
Yes, Comedy Central wouldn't air the footage.
No, Comedy Central didn't censor it, South Park did that censoring screen themselves.
Yes, they knew in advance as Slurm said, hence why numerous jokes and scenes were built around it.
No, the supposedly-pulled footage circulating the internet isn't real (though anyone with eyes could tell that, by the fact that Muhammad is in SP style rather than Family Guy, his lips don't move when he talks, he stands completely stationary whereas a SP character would normally move their head, and the footage has the CC logo in the corner).

So, I guess that solves the mystery of the missing penis.

Just saw an ad for this week's....looks like a parody of that author who made stuff up in his book and was endorsed by Oprah (hell if I can remember the guy's name). Oprah introduces Towelie(!), clearly in disguise, as the author of something.

Sucks about the censoring....to be fair though, it added an extra bit of hilarity to the scene.  I do hope they show it uncensored at some point though...perhaps on the dvd?

The reason why Towelie is hilarious is because it's poking fun at shows that introduce pathetic reccuring characters.

More info:

Towelie gets over his drug addiction and writes a moving book about his experiences. Thanks to Oprah’s support, the book becomes a best seller and his story inspires millions to turn their lives around. However, when he’s caught in a lie by the grand dame of daytime television, Towelie’s old habits start to look mighty appealing.

Cartoon Wars Part II
I saw the first three episodes of the season, all had their small moments, but I loved this one. I saw half of the jokes coming but I STILL laughed. And not just the little half hearted "hah" or "snort"  as usual, these were the big hearty veal dinner equivalent of a laugh!

Besty bitty:
The cartoon at the end! Teehehe! "And I are President Bush I CRAP ARE ON BOTH OF YOU!"   laff Good to see them going back to the fundamentals!

Trey and Matt, you have earned this A+!

While I think the concept of Towelie is funny, this episode was probably one of the worst of the series. No huge laughs for me... well, maybe when Gary died...

Worst of the series?  I don't agree with that myself.  It wasn't a great episode by any stretch, but  I thought it was pretty funny overall.  I didn't see the Oprah's minge subplot coming at all.

I'm not quite sure what to make of A Million Little Fibers. On one hand, I normally like South Park's mindless, over-the-top stupid episodes (eg. Prehistoric Ice Man, Towelie, The New Terrance & Phillip Movie Trailer), but this one was pretty crappy. Towelie had a few good lines, but aside from that, he was the only real South Park character in there. The episode really fell apart when Oprah's "minge" and "Gary" came into the story... I'd say about 20% of the entire thing was just a close-up on Oprah's pants, and that's just plain poor show-making. An episode idea that had a lot of potential for humour, but lost it all in the execution.

It reminds me of one of those audio tape recordings you make with a couple of your friends when you're teenagers. You do silly voices, and say retarded things, and you and your friends think it's the funniest thing ever, but no one else who listens to it even laughs. I really think that's what happened here. It's something that Matt and Trey had a lot of fun doing and personally found funny, trouble is no one else did.

The only good that will come of this will be if they piss off Opera.

I would say it's one of those episodes you see once, get your laughs and never think of it again. It had its moments, but I would call if forgettable.

I didn't like it either. I'd put it along side Smug Alert as one of the bad episodes of the season so far (though Smug Alert wasen't bad so much as not so good).

Smug Alert was average - I hated it at first, but it actually got a little better with a repeat viewing. But this... awful. I'd rank it with The Return of Chef, as an episode with a lot of potential for humour, quite a few funny moments to begin with (Chef's jumbled voice clips, Towelie had a few good scenes), only to completely spiral downhill when a stupid, immature element was introduced (The Super Adventure Club's "secret," Oprah's minge), and then struggle to maintain itself in the last half.

Somewhat mediocre showing.  Towelie's parts (especcially his joints "talking" to him) were really funny, but the whole thing with Oprah dragged a lot and the whole episode just felt a little pointless.  It probably would have helped to pick a more interesting topic; the whole controversy over "A Million Little Pieces" really meant nothing to me. 3/5

I'm surprised to see people saying this is one of the worst ever, though, here and elsewhere (on No Homers one person said that the show had just jumped the shark with it).  I mean, Jakovosaurs?  Weight Gain 4000? Cartman Gets and Anal Probe?  There's been some baaaad episodes compared to this.  This was just a little dull and not especcially funny; it didn't really seem that terrible to me.

I'm amazed that you think this can be compared favourably to classic episodes like Weight Gain 4000, a personal favourite, and Cartman Gets an Anal Probe, even a poor episode like Jakovosaus was better than this rubbish. I guess different people have different tastes     hmpf

Weight Gain 4000 is an great episode, along with the rest of Season 1. Their comedic wit and satire was pretty rusty, but the humour of the first season is rock solid... Okay, so Cartman Gets an Anal Probe wasn't too good, but there were a few decent moments, and it's easily forgivable given that it's their first episode, and Matt & Trey did the entire thing with construction paper. Jackovasaurus is a little worse, yes, but again, it does have its moments, and certainly wasn't as bad as that one.

I didn't care much for the Towelie episode. "minge" and "Gary" was a little funny, since Gary reminded me an awful lot of Dave Lister from Red Dwarf.

What a terrible episode.  Like others have said, Towelee had some funny parts, but Minge and Gary was just so stupid it ruined the episode for me.  I'm giving it a very generous 2/10 and would compare it to Family Guy's "Patriot Games" (that's a bad thing).

Scottish and English, are very difference, I was referring to tone of voice.  "Gary" was Oprah's asshole, right?  I was talking about him.  His tone just sounded like David Lister.  I don't want to debate on this, this is just my opinion on the voice.

Come on, be fucking reasonable. As bad as this episode was, it still had a few funny parts. I went through all of Patriot Games without laughing.

What do you mean by that? The character, the Season 5 episode "Towelie" (both of which were hilarious), or the most recent episode with Towelie in it?
