I had to immediatly post in this thread after farting t&p style and laughing. God I'm immature. A well even in two years when I'm 18 I'll probably stillbe the same. My 30 year old cousin always quotes cartman in his earlier years.

I saw the new episode of south park tonight. Al Gore wasn't that funny. If I hear cereal one more time I'm going to scream!

I think there should be a rule where cartoon shows can't go past 9th season. So far the 10th has been pretty crappy.

The 6th season was the best also The 4th season was pretty good.

Al Gore kind of seems like a random target, but I find the idea of famous politicians just hanging around and being losers to be inheritely hilarious for some reason (it doesn't matter who they are or what I think of them in real life) so hey, it worked for me. Anyway, pretty hilarious episode. Another one where a ton of things were just really crazy and hilarious and I could barely contain myself from laughing. 5/5

I seem to be alone on this here, but I really think this is one of the best seasons so far...

Gret episode, I'm super serial. It reminded me of the first half of season 8, with the silly phrases it carried throughout the episode, ("You got served", "That's ignorant", "They took our jerbs", etc.). Cartman shitting treasure was brilliant. Really made up for all that nonsense last week.

4/5

Anyone else watch season 8 lately? It's aged really well. I'd go as far as to say that I'd probably place it as my second favourite season of all time at this point.

I definitely like Season 8 a lot more than I did when it first air (I think I ranked Season 1 above it at some point), but I'd still rank Seasons 6 and 7 above it. After all, not a bad ep in the bunch for Season 6, though if it weren't for South Park Is Gay, Christian Rock Hard and Raisins, Season 8 would probably be above 7 in my list.

Homerjay - Season 4 good? Are you high? Okay, Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000, Tooth Fairy's TATS 2000, Timmy 2000, Chef Goes Nanners and Fat Camp are excellent, but the rest of the season is very, very average.

Anyway, onto the new episode, Manbearpig. This episode's not as good as everyone's saying it is... Granted, it's nowhere near as bad as last week's, but it reminded me of Free Wilzyx. The storyline's fairly grounded, all the good jokes quickly become dull, and the ending (eg. Cartman crapping out the treasure, Jamboo dead on the moon) could be seen coming a mile away. You know, South Park's jokes may be relevant to the plot, but they're always hit-or-miss, and lately, there have been more misses than hits. There were just no real surprises or stand-out good jokes, and if it weren't for Al Gore being so hilariously pathetic, this would be a very average episode.

6.5/10

DotheBartman - As far as Season 10 goes, Cartoon Wars has been the only real stand-out at the moment. And given there's only one episode left for this half, I certainly wouldn't consider Season 10 "one of the best" at the moment. Hopefully, the second half will make up for shit like The Return of Chef and A Million Little Fibers.

Maybe I'm just a tad retarded, but I did not see Cartman shitting out the treasure coming. I expected him to throw up treasure, and the shitting was a lot funnier than that ever could have been.

What about the underrated Pip? Even though the episode is pretty boring most of the way through, the ending is probably one of the best endings to an episode ever.

I thought this week's episode was pretty flat.  The manbearpig idea was funny, but they squandered the idea by attaching it to a boring Al Gore character.  I don't remember much else about this episode other than Cartman shitting gold, which tells me it wasn't that good. 

I hadn't seen the 9:30 lead in episode, "All About the Mormons?", before. I found that episode to be much better than the new one.

Compared to last weeks, it was great. I found the Al Gore thing sort of amusing at first, but it got a little old. I Liked Cartman shitting out, though at first is did seem like he might puke it up.

I thought for sure that Manbearpig was going to make an appearance, becuase one of the rules of comedy is "if everyone believes something doesn't exist, then it does." However, yeah, it would be very similar to Scuzzlebutt. Matt'n'Trey shouldn't have repeated themselves so much.

This season's been pretty weak so far. "Manbearpig" is probably a typical, average, forgettable episode. It passed away and will probably not be remembered as either a highlight or lowlight of the season.

I actually liked this episode.  Manbearpig was better than the Towelie episode.  I thought it was funny when Al Gore kept saying he was very "cereal" and that thing he said when he thought he killed Manbearpig!  I agree that it would've been funnier if Manbearpig turned out to be real, plus it was cool how Cartman was greedy about that fake treasure. 

Though the only flaw this episode had was how did the kids get out of the cave when Kyle and Cartman drowned?  Also, I noticed some character development in Kenny how he's giving orders like he's the leader.  It was funny how people said nobody took Al Gore seriously and how he has no friends.  I liked it how the kids told him off. 

Plus, I think this episode was kind of making fun the West Virigina cole miners.   You know South Park likes to rip on current events.  Good episode.   I give it a 4/5.

Though, I did not like the Towelie episode at all, it would've been better if Towelie asked the kids for help and the episode just reflected on Towelie and Oprah.  Why is it Towelie's living in Chicago now?   I give that one 1/5.  I haven't been on PEEL in a while, so that's why I've reviewed both episodes.

"Horse Whisperer" parody, I'm assuming?  Not really sure what else it could be.  And man, how long since Cartman's mom has really figured into a plotline this heavily?  "Freak Strike" maybe?

Anyway, this doesn't sound as promising as some of the other episodes have, but I remain optimistic.  I've enjoyed most of the episodes so far quite a bit.

Cartman-centric episodes tend to be very good or very bad, there's usually no middle ground. I'll be interested to see which direction they take this in - though it's one of those episodes that they could easily fuck up. So far, this season's been very disappointing to me, with the exception of Cartoon Wars.

Maybe, but it could be a parody of this National Geographic Channel show.  I've never watched the show, but I've seen it pimped in their magazine and I've had it described to me by friends.  The show sounds dumb as fuck so I didn't believe it was real, but apparently it is.  Perhaps they'll roll the "Horse Whisperer" in there as well.  They tend to do parody from multiple angles a lot in the show.

Ah, that's definitely it actually.  In the ad I've seen a bunch of times he calls himself Cesar Millan, which is the name of the guy on that show apparently.

Tsst was pretty good... a very nice character exploration of Cartman, and some funny moments. LOVED all the jokes about the current trend in nanny shows (along with their horrible appearances, and the way Cartman was so easily able to rebel against them), and the show really shined in those first few minutes when Cesar Millan was treating Cartman like a dog. Lots of Cartman abuse, some good character humour, and it was great to see NO-ONE lending a hand to Cartman when he was down, not even Butters. Still, it wasn't without its problems - the storyline seemed a little aimless (though that's forgivable since it was a character episode), and there were quite a few dull moments, but overall, this is definitely one of the better episodes this season. Not quite as good as Cartoon Wars, but certainly more watchable than A Million Little Fibers, that's for sure.

7/10

I thought it was pretty good. Nothing classic, but still funny and watchable. That's been a bit of a trend this season, outside of Cartoon Wars and A Million Little Fibers. I was dissapointed that Mrs. Cartman didn't have sex with Ceaser. Her character sure has changed over the years. 3.5/5

Manbearpig:
Very weak, I was hoping for something good to make up for the absymal A Million Little Fibres(possibly the worst episode ever) but this was only a minor improvement, they basically repeated the same joke over and over, Al Gore is such a loser, it got old
In my opinion Southpark never do political humour well, they tend to be too biased, always making fun of democrats but rarely republicans, a good show should makes fun of both sides as they both deserve to be ripped on.
If you only pick on one side you end up looking like a moron like Micael Moore.
The only bits I found entertaining involved Cartman but even that ended predictably.

So far I'd rate season 10 as a little below par, Cartoon Wars 1&2 were great, Return of Chef was decent, Smug Alert wasn't that good, Manbearpig was poor and AMLF was awful.
Still the fact that Matt and Trey can pull off a clasic like Cartoon Wars shows they still got it so there is still hope for the rest of the season.

Rarely make fun of republicans? What you talkin' 'bout Willis? What about the "We'll do as we always do - use the republicans" joke in Best Friends Forever (in regards to pushing Hell's agenda), George Bush's scenes in A Ladder to Heaven, all the republican voters being gun-toting redneck hicks in I'm A Little Bit Country, etc? The only reason why democrats cop it more is because Matt and Trey love taking shots at Hollywood, and we all know the left-wing bias that has. I've always considered South Park to be one of the most unbiased shows when it comes to satirical content - just look at any Simpsons episode with political satire. Dracula is a republican, for cryin' out loud!

Oh well... Here are my ratings for the first half:
THE RESTURN OF CHEF: 7/10 (it's grown on me quite a bit with repeat viewings)
SMUG ALERT: 6/10
CARTOON WARS PART 1: 9/10
CARTOON WARS PART 2: 9.5/10
A MILLION LITTLE FIBERS: 3/10
MANBEARBIG: 6/10
TSST: 7/10

Simpsons are definely left wing biased, I won't argue with that but with Soutpark I used the qualifier "rarely" not "never" yes they make fun of right wingers too but left get it probably 2 or 3 times more often, I mean why Gore? he is a nobody anymore isn't there more deserving targets to go after?

That was kind of the entire joke. The "Who's Al Gore" jokes wouldn't have worked with a more well-known name. Most of their targets in Seasons 1-3 were randomly chosen like that, anyway. I thought Al Gore was what made that episode...

And it's "South Park," not "Southpark!" ARHRAGGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyone liked last night's episode?  I sure did.  It's about time someone made fun of those nanny shows!  It was really good for a Cartman episode.  I liked how the dog trainer was displining Cartman, and how he wanted to run away and none of his friends wanted to have anything to do with him.  Also, the scene where Cartman transformed and it seemed he was good and the dog trainer wasn't needed anymore and Cartman's mother gave into Cartman again!  And it seemed he would regress back to his evil ways. 

Great episode!  5/5.

I thought it was another good episode, it was good to see Cartman get put in his place, I still prefer the older episodes though, I rewatched Tom's Rhinoplasty for the first time in ages last night and laughed far more than I have at recentepisodes.

Yeah, Season 1 is certainly underrated in that aspect. It may not have the wit and satirical intelligence of the later episodes, but Season 1 is certainly one of the more consistent seasons when it comes to humour. You're guranateed to laugh your ass off through most of Season 1. Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo's my favourite Season 1 episode, though. I had tears in my eyes when the kids were performing the shitty non-christian Christmas play.

I still think season one is pretty uneven (I never liked "Rhinoplasty" in fact, except for the admittedly hilarious "licking carpet" scene), but yeah, the original Mr. Hankey episode is great.  Probably my favorite of the first season, ahead of Starvin' Marvin.

As for Kurt, I think the previously mentioned strategy of just ignoring him is probably the way to go.  His inability to respond to anything or read any of the other posts in a thread is annoying, but I think he's pretty ignorable anyway despite that.
