Please don't tell me you took it seriously. They make fun of my heritage almost every other episode and I laugh along with it. They do it to almost all religions, why should the Mormons be different?

Anyways they avoided the cheepest shots at the religion and the kid at the end did bring up a good point. Also as I said before Mormans have the one true faith in the Southpark universe so be happy about that.

Also  Jospeh Smith was a member of the Super Best friends and helped with his ice powers. Mormons are treated comparativly well on Southpark.

I've been to Casa Bonita myself.  Its pretty close to my school and a decent drive from my house.  BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA.


Yeah, the episode was pretty accruate to it.  I thought they would exagerate it (with theme park rides and so forth) but they actually pretty much made it accurate.  The only thing they left out was the awesome arcade, one of the biggest and best I've ever seen....

EDIT: Oh, and the Mormons episode was suprisingly innoffensive I thought.  It was actually pretty complimentary toward Mormons actually, even if they did poke fun at the sketchy logistics of the legends/beliefs themselves.  The episode pointed out that even if the beliefs seem sketchy, often people do use their beliefs to better themselves and enjoy life more.  Pretty good message actually.

Slurm Guy - will you stop with the whole "pretending to be offended" joke? It's not funny, and just makes you look like an idiot.

I liked it, it was funny and had a good message at the end. And Slurm Guy even if you are Morman there's no need to get all anal over this episode, it was pretty inoffensive and like others here have said, they poke fun at every one. I wasn't offended (it was quite funny really) by the movie and they completly ripped on Canadians for the entire film, they rip on everyone (and I mean everyone, even americans). It's like Matt and Trey always say "It's just in good fun"

*Edit* oh yeah, the best quote was "That Gary is a douche"... mostly because Gary is my name  big grin .

Yet another great South Park episode!  It's so funny how Matt 'n Trey like to rip on the mormons.  But then again, as many others pointed out, they rip on everyone else, too.  The only problem I had with this episode is that it doesn't seem realistic to me that Stan's dad would change religion just like that.  But, you hear all the time that mormons are some of the nicest people in the world, and then this episode went all out to exaggerate it.  The best lines were at the end.  When that new kid, out of character said "suck my balls", and then suddenly Cartman thought he was cool.  I burst out laughing!

I chuckled but did not laugh incesently, it wasn't the best episode but it had one hell of an aim towards offending the state of Utah and mormons in general, I applaud thier aim and sticking to the subject but it wasn't quite as hilarious as some of thier others, and yeah Slurmy is quite steel-boned but he's honestly not a humorlous ice-princess.

Big deal, they've had children smoking on The Simpsons before. Besides, the episode's probably going to have a good moral (like most SP episodes do).

I know, I was just saying that it probably turns Michael Jackson on.... but that's another topic.

I hope they tear apart those damned Truth commercials. God Damn they're annoying.

*Edit* And know I don't think Michael really did it, I just find humor in others misfortunes.

I just saw Casa Bonita then. A very funny light-hearted episode, and enjoyable to watch. Also, Butters was hillarious. "Look Mr. Dog, another survivor! And it's a lady, too. That means we can repopulate the earth! Yippee!"  laff

Hopefully the upcoming South Park episode won't go too deeply into the American anti-smoking commercials. Lots of people complain about how the anti smoking commercials in America are really lame and ineffective, but I haven't seen any so I probably won't get any jokes about them.

Over here in Australia, our anti-smoking commercials show clips of doctors squeezing tar out of lungs and other twisted shit like that. They're really off-putting, but they get the point across.

Anyway, I just hope the episode focuses more on smoking rather than the commercials themselves, as I really hate it when American TV shows do jokes than only Americans will get.

Well the thing is the Anti-Smoking ads in america are made by the tobacco companys due to a law requireing they avertise negitave ads. And most of them are therefore full of grossly inacurate and misleading statements designed so that people will not take them seriously. So I for one am hopeing for the same or better treatment as the anti-drug episode.

Oh and South Park is a current Event driven program made in America. It will make refrences to american culture. That's the nature of it. When the Austrailian version of Trey and Matt show up on Austrailian TV I wouldn't expect to get most of the jokes either.

Well, most of the jokes in the show that reference something can usually be explained on http://www.spscriptorium.com  (best, South Park, website, EVER!) anyway. But about 90% of the time, I know what South Park is sattirising, and I don't need an explanation. I just didn't know much about America's anti-smoking commercials.

Speaking of which, I'm amazed that American anti-smoking ads are made by tobacco companies... over here, they're made by the government, and they tend to be very graphic, upfront and straight-to-the-point.

Anyway, back to the point of this post - I'm aware that South Park bases it's material on current events, I myself have stated that many times to morons who don't understand the show. Still, I get MOST of South Park's jokes, but every now and then, South Park covers an issue that Australia doesn't know of. For example, I had no idea about the whole incident behind Grey Dawn. However, most issues covered in the show (like in episodes such as Quintuplets, Red Hot Catholic Love, etc.) ARE known worldwide, so it's not a big deal.

Talk about jokes non-Americans wouldn't get, I have seen a few South Park episodes dubbed in German.  The voices are really bad (I used to think Futurama was the worst dubbed cartoon in Germany, but it turns out I was wrong.  South Park is much worse, with bad translations and horrendous voices).  Anyway, I don't even see the point of releasing South Park in Germany or other countries.  If people in Australia or the UK don't get jokes, than think about how much worse it is if you don't speak English.  South Park is a satire on American life and events.  I don't see the point of releasing it in countries like Germany, especially if it's dubbed.  I guess all the sex jokes and maybe the cursing are universal, but everything else isn't.

The American Government is too tied up in tobacco to have the balls to come out and bash it publicaly. So it forced the companys to do it themselfs. It's kind of a mess. and at the end of the day I still don't smoke and could care less who does or how unpleasent their lungs appear.

Incident behind grey dawn? Red Dawn was a movie man. And again I have to come back to the fact that it is an American show meant for an american audience. (really to be totaly correct its meant for Trey Parker) They arn't trying to make it broad enough for international viewers.

The title was based on Red Dawn, but the story behind the story was: an old man fell asleep at the wheel and drove his car through an outdoor food and livestock show in alabama somewhere. (correct me if I'm wrong, my memory's hazy)

No a lot of the stuff after they call in the AARP is from Red Dawn. I was especialy impressed with the prison camp. It looked almost exactly like the movie.

I got the Red Dawn references, but when I said the "incident behind Grey Dawn" - I was referring to the story Newhook was talking about. It wasn't exactly a well-known story down here in Australia, that's all I'm saying.

I thought it was an old guy who lost control of his car and drove through a farmers market (just like in South Park).  It was a pretty recent event.

In the Casa Bonita episode, was anyone else bummed out by the fact that Cartman did something seriously illegal and was going to Juvenile hall?  Maybe I just love Cartman too much.  I mean, it didn't bother me when he was selling unborn fetuses (greatest SP quote ever:  "I'm just like these fetuses Chuck, I wasn't born yesterday either!" ) or when he was spreading feces all over Butters' house.  Maybe I'm just getting weak in my old age.

Yes, and I know "it's just a cartoon."  :P

Yeah, see, I dont' get it either.  Maybe because he has to pay for his crime?  I know he went to Juvie in "Cartman's Silly Hate Crime"  But it wasn't really a hate crime, per se.  And he did have to shove stuff up his ass for fun and profit. 

I'm not saying I understand why this particular episode had that impression on me, I'm just saying it did. 

BTW, I bet that chili was mighty tasty.

Cartman can do the things that he does because:
1. He's Fat
2. He's A Bastard
3. His Mom's A Slut

With all of the other shit that happens to Cartman, I don't blame him.

In fact, she's such a crack-whore slut she's on the cover of Crack-Whore Slut magazine. Literally. In one episode, you can see that issue.

Comedy Central will air the South Park movie once again this weekend. I taped it in July so I don't have to stay up so late again!   big grin

It wasn't Crack-Whore Slut Magazine, it was just "Crack Whore Magazine." And the episode that's in is episode 107 - Pinkeye.

Also, South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut aired on free-to-air Australian TV mid-last year, fully uncut at 9:30pm. I don't see the big deal about it airing uncut on American TV at 1:00am, but then again, you Americans are so big on censorship and such...  tongue

Yes, the censorship here truly sucks ass.  That's why I don't really watch network TV (other than for football).  At least cable channels have the decency to have people talk like real people and then bleep out the bad words.  And I think South Park really fueled that trend.

I was expecting the new episode to air this Wednesday, but instead they aired that episode about the Hellen Keller play.  Which, incidently, I've never seen before, so I pretty much got a new episode anyway!  But I didn't find the episode all that great, as far as South Park episodes go.  I hardly ever laughed.
