I enjoyed the episode, always enjoy seeing more of the goth kids. The general reception from most fans though is that the episode sucked, hard. hmpf

Besides the really cop out ending and ear scratching opening, I thought it was decent. The goths were decent characters throughout it, despite the multiple reused jokes from them and the vampire episode, and I laughed pretty hard at the random black vampire and Edgar Allen Poe's ghost, but the rest of it was mostly just boring. Also, the plot was pretty disjointed here. The first act was pretty much pointless, with the 3rd act completely falling apart with that awful Punk'd style ending.

Overall: a low 3/5. Best of the Season I guess (really mediocre Season so far).

Definitely not the most tightly-written or plotted episode, but it had a lot of laughs that mostly made up for it.

I wouldn't say this episode was my favorite of the season, but it was pretty damn funny. The part with them at CPS explaining the difference between an emo and a goth kid had me laughing really hard. tongue

I'd give it an 8.3/10 or B-

Ehhh... the ending sucked anus and none of it was particularly funny...

But then, it more or less worked. They've done much worse.

Probably my 2nd least favourite of the season, so far, though.


Also, what the hell was that preview of next week's at the end about? Ike goes through puberty? Looks interesting.

Yeah, I'm not sure what the hell that was, though this at least confirms that they used the extra week to get a jump start on the next episode(s).

I still believe "Let Go, Let Gov" is the best of the season, I don't get the love for "World War Zimmerman" at all.

Also, does anyone else think it would be cool to see Kenny get replaced again?

I don't think so, so much. They've already done it, and I feel like SP is one of those shows that is good at and is better when they stay fresh.

Goth episode was fairly good. I liked the plants and ending worked well, but it was surprising choice for South Park.

I think it's the worst of the season, by a mile.

Trash TV parodies are never surprising on South Park, any more.

7/10

This episode was kind of funny, but I didn't enjoy it too much. It's not my least favorite from Season 17; "Let Go, Let Gov" will always hold that title.

I've not seen "Informative Murder Porn" yet, but I think I'll watch it today so that might change my opinion, but what's so bad about "Let Go, Let Gov"?  It wasn't great, but I thought it was enjoyable enough.

For a season opener, it was pretty weak. It had a few laughs, but nothing great. I think fans of a show watch the first of a season, hoping it'll set the tone for the rest of the season. If " Let Go, Let Gov" was the tone set, the rest of the season will be pretty mediocre.  hmpf

It wasn't awful, but it was pretty dull and not hugely funny.

As a result, its one of the show's worst episodes. The show is usually much better than that (or, at least, it used to be).

Cyber_turnip, how would you rate the very early seasons of South Park? Most people say the show doesn't start picking up until Season 3 like The Simpsons. Do you agree or disagree here?

Yeah. I'd say the show only really gets going at the very end of season 4, with episodes like "Trapper Keeper", "Fat Camp" and "The Wacky Molestation Adventure". But that's not to say that everything before that is bad.

I like the early seasons, but not nearly as much. They're a lot cruder, in every sense.

You consider LGLG "mediocre"? Either you're going too easy on it, or I'm being too harsh.

Yeah, I usually give out good ratings to episodes pretty easily. Only one episode has scored a 7/10 for me this season so far. It could become the weakest season of the series soon.

I like the early seasons, but not nearly as much. They're a lot cruder, in every sense.

I enjoy the Python-esque absurdity of the first few seasons, though there's a lot of nostalgia in those episodes for me, which is partly why I still hold them in such high regard. The show didn't reach its apex until the sixth season, though season four certainly shows the early signs of the more clever satirical episodes (ie. Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000, Quintuplets 2000, Something You Can Do With Your Finger).

TheBPB11 - They're not in it. This is the complete list. Perhaps you're confusing it with the fan version, which was essentially a wish-list of who should've been in it?

A bit more news on the upcoming episode for which we received that perplexing teaser last week:

Quote


NEW YORK, October 28, 2013 - Kyle doesnít understand WHATíS HAPPENING TO HIS BABY BROTHER in an all-new episode of "South Park" titled "Taming Strange," premiering Wednesday, October 30 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central.

Ike just isnít himself lately and he and Kyle are growing apart. Kyle goes to the guidance councilor for advice but Mr. Mackey is too busy dealing with the bugs in the schoolís new integrated technology system to help. Kyle decides to take Ike to a live performance of his favorite show; Yo Gabba Gabba. He hopes it'll make his little brother like him again.

Also, apparently production of season 17 was originally designed to have two breaks in it (one after episode 4, and another one a bit later), so the powercut has basically accounted for what was supposed to be their first week off. Looks like it was never going to be 10 weeks straight of production, after all.

The real reason was a power outage in the studios in Los Angles on the day it was supposed to air.  Look up in this thread for links to it.   hmpf roll eyes

I had it on, although I was doing my school project while watching, I barely saw any of the ep. All I remember, is a football player crapping his pants. It was a very disturbing, but funny scene.

I prefer the Brian and Stewie episodes. This one was too Fred & Barney centric. Also needed more Pinkie-Pie.
