Sorry guys, but I think Randy and Sharon broke up in a season 1 episode no ?

And the other episodes cyber_turnip mentioned didnt really focus on them at all, Ass Burgers was focused on Stan big time. What I meant is that rarely did they toss aside the kids and focus on the rest of the Marsh family and that was nice.

Clubhouses, Season 2 Episode 12.

So I saw 1%, I enjoyed the Cartman plot a lot, but the % part was confusing and stuff. So yeah, same opinion as most of you guys.

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.

They're just called 'running jokes'. I wouldn't say those are particularly good examples of "running it into the ground" though. Those were funny every time they did it. Stuff like "I'm not just sure, I'm HIV positive" was funny the first time, but not so funny the third time.

Creme Fraiche was absolutely all about Randy and Sharon. The kids came into play after a while, but only in an attempt to drive Randy back to Sharon.

New ep sounds like something you'd see in the older seasons, here's hoping there's gonna be the seasonal Kenny death in it too. smile

I don't think it sounds like older stuff. It sounds like their "huge conspiracy" thing that they do all the time now. Which is a good thing in my opinion.

This episode has a lot of potential.

It sounds a little silly which is what South Park should be, no serious crap like in 1% and Crack Baby Athletic Association...

Okay then, All About the Mormons... The only silly thing I remember in that ep was the song going "Dumb de dumb de dumb de dumb!", as in, this Religion is really dumb...

I'd make an argument for the entire Mormon religion being a bit silly.

Plus "Our faces are painted!".

But other than that, you can't pick 1 episode out of the last 8 seasons as proof that the show isn't silly like it used to be.

And also, what's your point? 'All About Mormons' was a great episode. I'd take it over something like 'Jackovasaurs' (pretty much epitomises silly) any day fo the week.

I'm with cyber_turnip, what's your point? Are saying you didn't like that episode because it wasn't silly enough? All About Mormons was a brilliant episode.

Don't get me wrong, I love it when South Park is silly, it does it so well. Bass To Mouth might not have been a fantastic episode but it was so over-the-top ridiculous that I couldn't help but laugh my ass off. The Canadian wedding parts of Royal Pudding were the same thing, so ridiculously and hilariously out of nowhere. Free Willzyx is one of my favorite episodes of all time and that episode is pretty much all silly.

But South Park is really at its best when it's tackling some sort of issue or pop culture phenomenon with the biting satire that Matt and Trey have become masters at since they started this show. I'm not saying their satire is always perfect (1% was a good example of that, the satire was a bit too heavy-handed), but when they get it right it's nothing short of spectacular.

I'm not making fun of them because they're different, I'm making fun of them because their religion is silly.

Well, I'm not even making fun of them, I'm just stating that their religion is silly. Out of all major religions, theirs is one of the silliest.

Step off, Winna. Possession of basic rationality is sufficient qualification for a judgement of "silly".

Notice how I said "one of the silliest" instead of "the silliest"? That's because of Scientology.

The difference between Mormons and Scientologists being that while all Mormons believe their silly origin story, most Scientologists don't even know about the Xenu story. It's not until they've gotten far into the courses and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on Scientology that they are officially given that story as part of the religion, at which point they've invested so much time and money into it that they'll believe anything to justify it (or assume that the story isn't supposed to be real but a metaphor, like Christians who believe the Bible stories are metaphors).

Scientology flat out lies to its members who haven't got up to that point about it if they hear about the Xenu story and ask about it, saying it's a lie made up on the internet that the media is exploiting. They refer to learning that story as the Wall of Fire, and Hubbard wrote that if you learn it before you're ready for it (aka have given the church hundreds of thousands of dollars) you will get pneumonia and possibly die.

They won't even let you join if you already know the Xenu story. Seriously, try going into a Scientology church and asking about Xenu. They will literally KICK YOU OUT.

Scientology is a huge scam and an evil cult that abuses its members. But it is a total misconception that most Scientologists actually know about and believe in the ridiculous Xenu story. Most public Scientology members who aren't far into it are totally sane people looking for some spiritual guidance, and are coaxed slowly into the more insane aspects of Scientology. It's the church itself that is nuts, not its members...at least not at first.

There's no mention of there not being aliens at the first thanksgiving.  And what about stuffing?  Is that an alien technology too?  There appears to be no mention of stuffing before 1621, did the aliens bring this technology down to earth?  What other secrets don't the government want you to know?

Silly?  Or true?  You can't believe what everyone tells you; you have to open your eyes.  Was the first Thanksgiving visited by ghosts?  There's not evidence to suggest that the first Thanksgiving wasn't haunted, but multinational corporations want to control you and suppress the truth without your knowledge.

Amazing. Loved Natalie Portman's "Hmmm.... No." and "Hmmm... Nah." and the Pilgrim flying to Earth, laughed out loud so many times.

Also, the Pilgrim's name was Miles Standish (I think it was Miles), was nice to hear the word "Standish" since it's where I live. big grin

South Park isn't about the randomness... Random stuff is awful. (Except for asdfmovie)

And "Bass to Mouth" was hilarious. I was crying laughing at that.

Also, I noticed on the preview clip for this ep on the website, the clip shows Stan, Kyle, Cartman, Kenny and Miles sat around the fire when he shows them the map, but in the episode it was only Kyle and Miles, so they must alter/cut out a lot of stuff.

South Park tends to have a healthy dose of randomness to it.

I mean, absolutely everything to do with Lemmiwinks is random as hell, but it's hilarious for it.

I like 1% the most for this demi-season. I'm not sure why, but I enjoyed it a lot. It felt like a very contained episode.

Amazing. Loved Natalie Portman's "Hmmm.... No." and "Hmmm... Nah." and the Pilgrim flying to Earth, laughed out loud so many times.

Also, the Pilgrim's name was Miles Standish (I think it was Miles), was nice to hear the word "Standish" since it's where I live. big grin

It doesn't sound like a real name, does it? I feel terrible for the historical Myles Standish. His name has always sounded perfectly like it was made-for-TV, or specifically the midday light entertainment slots. He was born to the wrong era.
