Indeed it was Volcano, though his personality was completely different. He didn't start to become Randy as we know him until season 6-ish ("Child Abduction is Not Funny" is the first episode where I remember finding Randy completely fucking hilarious).

True, true! I'd forgotten about those. smile

I still think season 6 is where he absolutely transcended, though.

If I remember correctly, Butters doesn't have any role in episodes until Season 3 minimum. Season 1 and 2 were mainly just about the four boys, which I like alot still.

Butters first appeared as a background character in the pilot episode, but his first speaking role was in the Season 3 episode "Two Guys Naked in a Hot Tub".

He made a couple of noises in the movie (when he touched Cartman after they saw Asses of Fire and when he dropped the flag later), which was technically completed before production on the meteor shower trilogy had begun, if that counts at all. tongue

I'm probably going to get murdered on here after posting this like the Brian & Stewie episode, but after rewatching Season 16 this week I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining was by far my favourite episode of that season. It was way more over the top than I remember it being, but it made me laugh pretty much the whole way through and had that awesome live action sequence at the end which I totally forgot about. It also gets bonus points for being one of the few modern South Park episodes that focuses entirely on the four main boys. 10/10

I honestly think that "I Should Never Have Gone Ziplining" is the worst episode ever made.

It's one joke stretched out for 22 minutes and it's not a particularly funny joke.

And the live-action sequence did nothing for me. It just reeked of desperation.

That comment could be applied to quite a few South Park episodes. I personally think the worst offender for this would be Creme Fraiche (or however it's spelled, I'm too damn drunk to check).

It's a bad trait that's been becoming very prevalent in later seasons of the show, agreed, but at least "Creme Fraiche" had something of a storyline to back it up about Randy wanting to become a celebrity chef. Not a great story, granted, but it's more than "I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining", where the story is every bit as mundane for me as it was for the kids experiencing it.

Writers often talk about how hard it is to write boring stuff in a sitcom because you run the risk of actually being boring instead of funny and I'd argue that this episode fell into that trap headfirst.

On the South Park wiki, "Nightmare on Face Time" was voted the best Season 16 episode.

Glad to see I wasn't the only one who hated that episode. It really was horrible. You could actually see Matt and Trey rushing to get the script done.

His noises were done in a different voice, though, so I'd say that it doesn't count.

Basically the single most relatable character ever. Stay sharp on this thread cuz I'm going to look on wikipedia now.

To bring back some older epsiodes, I really enjoyed "Faith Hilling."

Older like last year?

"Faith Hilling" starts really well, but it wastes its premise and ends up just being a total mess of ideas and, frankly, really lazy.

I kind of agree that it was a bit sloppy.

1. *beginning no no

2. But in the end, does a good beginning make an episode good if the rest of the episode isn't so good?

I thought Faith Hilling was awful. It was just a bunch of jokes about various means without altering anything for humour or even making a basic point on the subject... Hell, the last line in the show practically outright admitted that they were pandering to the online community for the entire episode.

If they'd developed the nonsense with cats learning and had gone down more of a cat uprising route, used to satirise internet memes in a more coherent way, I'd have loved it.

The internet meme thing had already been covered by the show to some extent back in Canada on Strike, which I also felt was a pretty lackluster episode and a waste of a perfectly decent premise. They just need to avoid that well completely, in my opinion. Let the low shows pick the fruit from the low branches.

I think South Park loses it's focus a lot in the newer episodes. The episodes all have potential, but get a bit mixed up in the middle.

I was just watching " Butters Bottom Bitch" the other day. What did you all think of it? I really enjoyed it.

It's one of my favourites (though then again, I love most of season 13). The running joke with the cop is one of the funniest things the show's ever done. laff

I think it's an average episode from a weaker season.

Nothing special and the running joke with Yates is lame and they run it into the ground.

They'll probably replace the Goth Kids episode with the one about Lemmiwinks they wanted to do 9 years ago.

Likewise, it's one of my all-time favourites. Given that even Matt and Trey thought that the Lemmiwinks Easter episode wasn't working, and we instead got Awesome-O and Woodland Critter Christmas out of it, I'd say they definitely made the right call on that one. smile

BUMP.

Maybe it's just because of how close to home it hit, but I really, really enjoyed Goth Kids 3. Granted, the material was largely dated and the episode followed pretty conventional South Park structure, but I was laughing my ass off the entire way through. LOVED the random black dude and the ghost of Edgar Allen Poe. Easily my favourite episode of the season so far. big grin

Yeah, that's pretty much exactly what I would have said. It was probably the most I've laughed at a recent South Park episode and I thought the opening was awesome.
