That was one of the best/funniest episodes I've seen in a long time. Mr. Mackey at the end was the best part, overall it was hilarious, but Mr. Mackey at the end, oh God... laff

In fact, here.

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?

To me it just felt like they were trying to do too much (which is what often happens when they do two or three different stories in one episode), I liked both of the stories but, for most of the episode, it felt like they were completely separate episodes or something. So, yeah, basically I agree with you.

I'm intrigued by this, mostly for the inevitable 'The Book of Mormon' references.

I think my and most people's worries about this upcoming ep is that it seems very Randy centered. Hoping there's gonna be more of the boys in it, especially Kenny. frown

So, Sondheim is really just a bro-ey douchebag who goes to Hooters? Thanks for ruining my childhood, Matt and Trey!

Seriously though...that was pretty damn funny.

Hurr, That was actually quite a funny episode considering that it pretty much didn't involve the boys at all.

Wasn't a big fan. Pretty much your typical "South Park runs one joke into the ground for 22 minutes" affair. Was expecting a bit more given The Book of Mormon and Trey's love of musicals.

When watching the episode it took me a few seconds after he put on the Spider-Man outfit to realize the reference, but as soon as I did, the rest of the scene was hilarious.

Meh. It was sort of one joke spread out for 22 minutes, but with some great original songs thrown in. It wasn't bad, but it's far from the show's best stuff.

The final joke made me laugh out loud.

Just watched now, the ending was super weak, because I heard in the US version that a commercial for "The Book of Mormon" plays when Randy and Sharon wonder what musical will be coming to South Park next, but in the UK it just kind of ended. No joke. Just ended.

But yeah, fun episode I guess, no Kyle, but at least we saw Kenny unhooded at the pool. big grin

Best joke: The granddaughter part. laff "You fucking pervert."

Shame. The "Go get a blowjob!" ad for 'The Book of Mormon' was the funniest part of the episode.

And supposedly 'The Book of Mormon' is coming to the West End next year, so if they cared that much, they could have just slightly re-tooled the card they used for the promo to say "coming to London in 2012" or something similar.

This last episode was awesome, refreshing, didn't seem like a recycled plot and used the Randy/Sharon relationship for the first time...since well season 1. Also, I never laughed so hard at SP in a long while.

Don't forget peel, Spiderman works in mysterious ways and wherever he is, he loves you.

You mean it used the Randy/Sharon for the first time since 'Ass Burgers'.

Prior to that, 'You're Getting Old'.

Prior to that, 'Creme Fraiche'.

And I could go on.

Everyone seems to love 1% but it didn't do particularly much for me.

It was alright, but I found it to be lacking laughs for the most part.

Well, I personally haven't been following the whole Occupy Wall Street thing at ALL so all that stuff was pretty much lost on me. The Cartman plot was brilliant though. I love when Matt and Trey don't hold back on making his character completely fucked up in every conceivable way.

As someone who has been following the Occupy Wall Street stuff, the satire in this episode was way too direct for South Park. They should have been more subtle about it...perhaps they were worried their less aware audience members wouldn't get it if they did? In any case, it didn't do much for me, although I did like the point they made at the end where the 5th graders come in and complain about the 17%.

The Cartman story was awesome though, great payoff at the end.

Last night's episode was awesome, though apart of me thought that the murderer would be Scott Tenerman, but finding out it was Cartman, was brilliant and a huge shocker.

It annoys me to have to say "second", but Josh expressed my feelings on the ep perfectly.  I did like it, and was pleasantly surprised to see them take a few shots at the movement.  The portrayals of both points of view would have been much more effective with a touch more subtlty, though.

Major win on the Cartman angle, too!

Yeah, the Occupy Wall Street stuff was definitely too blatant. The fact that I barely knew anything about it yet pinpointed the reference immediately is a bad sign. South Park is at its best when the satire is just sitting smugly in the background, and the plot is still cohesive even to people who don't get the references. They totally abandoned the whole "gym scores" aspect of the plot once the Occupy stuff came in. Bad move. They should've just focused on the Cartman stuff.

This last episode was awesome, refreshing, didn't seem like a recycled plot and used the Randy/Sharon relationship for the first time...since well season 1. Also, I never laughed so hard at SP in a long while.
Totally missed this the first time around. What are you talking about? It's a frequently used dynamic in the show, especially as of late. Not to mention the fact that season 1 didn't have ANY Randy/Sharon episodes. A brief appearance here and there, sure, but their characters really didn't get fleshed out until season 6. I'd say Child Abduction is Not Funny was probably the biggest turning point for Randy's character in my opinion.

This guy, people! This guy right here! He's the guy!

You'll always have a home with us, Beamer. Are you in any trouble?

I've only seen the first three episodes of the new half-season. The first (Ass Burgers) was my favourite, but I had forgotten why the duck was President due to the mid-season lapse. A truly disturbing premise.

Wasn't a big fan. Pretty much your typical "South Park runs one joke into the ground for 22 minutes" affair. Was expecting a bit more given The Book of Mormon and Trey's love of musicals.

I haven't seen the episode yet, but I've always thought that there needs to be a name for it when South Park does that, even if it isn't the only show that falls prey to it. I'm especially thinking of the ones where it's the same phrase repeated over and over, like "They took 'er jerbs!", "Niiiiice!" and "You're trapped in the closet". I've been calling them "catchphrases-by-attrition", but there must be something better.

It was a movie commercial when the boys go to the cinema, the Duck is the President, and then he goes a "a dog or a duck or something, fuck you!" or something like that, then somehow the duck became the President in the real world. laff
