The Last of the Meheecans was better than I thought it was going to be, Butter being the Mexican leader was fun and Border Patrol catching the Mexicans and taking them back to the US was hilarious.

I found this episode to be one of my favorites. Butters-centric episodes are always almost awesome.

I wasn't too keen on it in all honesty. It felt like one of their weaker episodes to date.

I like it, but it wasn't as good as everyone was making it out to be. Maybe it's better if you're American.

I imagine it's a bit funnier for Americans because we get to laugh at the moronic immigrant-hating people we know in real life, but I still wouldn't say this was one of the better new episodes. I enjoyed it, for sure, but I doubt I'll consider it a standout episode.

I loved it, myself; just got a weakness for butters-centric episodes, I guess.

Apparently City Sushi was pretty bad for a Butters ep.

I actually really liked City Sushi. The end gets a bit ridiculous, though.

I finally saw it a few days ago. Kind of...

I missed the first 4 minutes, then I was busy on here, but i was listening to it a little and watching. I enjoyed the reference to Professor Chaos, among other things.

"City Sushi" Was amazing I agree with you about the ending but still I forgive them because they've always been known for their random episodes.

Well done on watching it Danny smile

And in the UK CC aired "The Last of the Meheecans" before "Ass Burgers" luckily I realized before watching them!

'City Sushi' is another of the show's weakest episodes to date. Season 15 has a lot of them.

None of the episodes are bad yet in my opinion - just as I wouldn't consider The Futurama Holiday Craptacular to be bad television - they're just bad compared to the rest of the show.

I'm really missing the older episodes (You know when they wrote the episodes in more than week.) Episodes these days are just "Meh" for me. And you can see the amount of pressure they're in to write 14 episodes a year.

I still love South Park to the max, but I was just watching "Child Abduction Is Not Funny" and "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society", both Season 6 (2002), and wow, lot of laughs, whereas now I only laugh like twice. Still, love the show. Good work.

For me, the show's peak was season 8 which was one of the seasons where they wrote every episode in a week (and that season was also made during the year that they were drained as hell from 'Team America').
So I don't know if the quick turnaround is to blame for the lackluster recent seasons or if they're just running out of steam. To be honest, I bet the staff-writers are a big part of it. The ideas still have potential to be brilliant episodes but they're just not pulling them off as well as they used to.

I enjoyed Last of the Meheecans.  Yeah i was a little predictable in places and perhaps not brilliant, but it was fun to watch.  Is it just me or did Butters not stutter as much as usual?

Ass Burgers was great but the over-the-top fecal imagery was a bit much.

New eeeeeppp...

Bass to Mouth

The students of South Park Elementary are the victims of a new gossip website. An elusive hacker has somehow gained access into the studentís confidential phone calls and e-mails and is posting all their juicy stories. The boys are shocked when they discover the identity of the hacker.

Hm, the preview clip makes me think it's Cartman... Woo, big surprise... ¨_¨

There was a lot less than in "You're Getting Old". hmpf

The preview clip shows Cartman telling everyone in the corridor about some kid who shit his pants or something in class, they are like "How do you know that for real?", he shows them a website on his phone called Eavesdropper, explains it has all the student's secrets on it. It then shows Kyle holding a phone and talking to everyone else, saying "We're about to find out who's been posting our secrets." and they all burst into the music room. We see them all stop and get shocked looks on their faces, Stan and Kyle look at each other. End of clip. hmpf

Cartman isn't with them at all when they burst into the music room. shifty

It has its moments, yes.  A few of the eps were so insanely funny that I could hardly see the TV through the tears of laughter.  It's like great sex, though: you really have to be in the zone before you start.

I just noticed a bit of a goof
Here we see Token between Stan and Butters and next to Token we see Craig

Here we see Token more between Stan and Wendy and Craig is miles away from Token!!

You can't judge the episode on that clip. The show is still in production and there's a good chance that clip will be completely different by the time it comes to air. The clips often do change before the episodes air.


EDIT: Actually, now I've looked at it, it's not even a goof, it's just to do with camera angles.

Who even cares if it is a goof? Do people actually pay attention to things like that?

Hm, I suppose this thread already answered my question.

It shows that the show has a high level of unprofessionalism.  I don't think many people will enjoy this series, and it'll probably get cancelled after its first season.

camera angles.

Working in a 2-dimensional medium, there's only ever really one 'angle'. Besides which, cameras haven't been used in the show's production since the pilot episode.

While it seems like something Cartman would do, why would they all have shocked looks on their faces if it were Cartman? If it were Cartman they'd probably have more "For fuck's sake, Cartman we should have know it was you" faces.

I think I would have loved that episode if the aforementioned character had no part of it. It was a great concept and full of funny moments, but the other stuff didn't quite gel with it for me.
I would have rathered they be two separate episodes. Still, I very much enjoyed it, it's one of the best episodes of season 15 so far in my opinion, though a far cry from great episodes we once got on a regular basis.

The Last of the Meheecans
Very solid episode! I thought they were going to tackle immigration but they went for the whole American pride thing instead and I'm so much happier for it. Seeing all the Mexicans trying to flee back to their homeland was hilarious, and I enjoyed Butters' plot.

Bass to Mouth
I've been waiting AGES to Lemmiwinks to return... Definitely wasn't expecting it to happen like this, though. Not that I'm complaining, it was all really funny. It's more the Mr. Mackey/teacher faculty storyline that just didn't sit right with me. I dunno, I may have to watch this one again. There was some funny stuff but it didn't all seem to gel. I loved the music though.

Overall, neither one will be a stand-out for this season, but both were pretty good. smile

Bass to Mouth was one of those really silly episodes that are always fun, but I agree with cyber_turnip and Beamer that the two stories didn't really feel right together. It feels like the episode could have just been the story with Lemmiwinks and his brother or the story with Cartman and the teachers and it would still have been great.

Even though it felt like they were trying put two different episodes' plots together, I still thought it was really hilarious and fun.

It wasn't so much the fact that the two stories didn't work together. I mean, it all made sense, plot-wise (as much as South Park usually does, anyway). Maybe it was more just the fact they took so long to properly intersect?
