That one was at the end of season 4 right? The show got really bizzare and preachy for awhile at the end of season 4. I saw it but I don't remember it all that well.

The show never got preachy in Season 4, it just began to run out of idea's. Keep in mind that at the time - Matt and Trey were working on That's My Bush! so they didn't really have much time for South Park, leaving more for the writers. And other than Tooth Fairy's Tats 2000, Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000, Timmy 2000, Quintuplets 2000, Cartman Joins Nambla, Trapper Keeper and Fat Camp - South Park's 4th season was really poor.

That's My Bush was a live action show created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone about president G. W. Bush. I thought that it was pretty funny, but alas, it only lasted a few episodes.  cry

It's a sit-com that Matt Stone and Trey Parker made in 2000/2001. It was all about George Bush, and basically made fun of how crappy sit-com's usually are, by being as crappy and lame as possible. A lot of the humour was originally so-lame-it's-funny jokes in the first few episodes (this was deliberate), but then it grew to become pretty funny - my personal favourite being the one where George has to speak at an anti-drug meeting, and accidentally takes speed a few minutes before, mistaking them for panadol.   laff

It lasted 8 episodes, and though it wasn't Matt & Trey's best work - it did get pretty good in the middle, and they have said in interviews and stuff that they're pretty damn proud of it. Hey, I'm all for anything from Matt & Trey that takes the piss out of sit-coms and George Bush...

Oh yes, That's My Bush is so freakin' funny!  It's just too bad that it only lasted for eight episodes.  I read that production was cut so fast not because of poor ratings.  It did well in the ratings, but the production costs were too high and too much for a cable network such as Comedy Central to bear.

I saw on Comedy Central's site that the season three DVD's contain audio commentaries.  Whoo!  I might consider getting the DVD's.  I didn't get any of the previous sets, because they contain just the episodes and not much more.  I don't need to buy the discs, I can just tape the episodes off the TV.  But audio commentaries can very well make the purchase worthwhile!

Yeah, they contain audio commentaries because they changed the distributors of the DVD's (Dreamworks took the original commentaries off due to Matt & Trey's comments towards the movie Contact). Still, the commentaries won't be full length, apparentally they're just "mini-commentaries", meaning they'll be about 8 minutes long. Still, better than nothing. I just wish the fucking DVD's would come out in Australia!

Anyway, I saw All About Mormons. Fairly average episode - it just didn't have that "South Park"-ish mood to it. The whole episode felt like it was being written by a completely different person, despite 2 or 3 really funny moments.

Also, South Park Is Gay airs on Aussie TV tonight at 8:30pm on SBS! Ironically, this is on at the exact same time Channel 10 airs Queer Eye For The Straight Guy...

Ah, so that's why the commentaries for DVD commentaries were removed from the set!  I thought it was because Matt 'n Trey were using the f-word too many times.  But just out of curiosity, what was so offensive about the comments towards the movie Contact?  Was DreamWorks the distributor of the movie, and Matt 'n Trey said bad things about the film?

I thought the Mormon episode was okay, but nothing special as well.  As I mentioned before, I just didn't find it realistic that Randy Marsh would change his religion in no time.

Yes, DreamWorks WAS the distributor of Contact, and they didn't want to offend Jodie Foster. I can't see why - she still brings in more money than South Park anyway. Even stupider is the fact that Matt & Trey only brought up how much they hated Contact because there was a joke about Contact being an awful movie in the episode Tom's Rhinoplasity, and Dreamworks LEFT THAT joke in. Also, the DVD was very rushed. The box mislabeled which disc the episodes were on, and the audio quality was apparentally less than satisfactory. In the end, Matt & Trey got so sick of this that they switched the distributor when it came time to release the Season 3 DVD.

Also, the main reason Stan got so pissed off at Gary in the end was that he thought his family was acting so nice to convince other people that being a Mormon was good (he make it pretty obvious by the end that he didn't believe their "nice family" routine was for real) - and that argument wouldn't have been as effective if they hadn't had convinced at least 1 person to convert to their religion. So, it might have well as been Randy, right? Considering he is probably the stupidest adult in the town. Also, considering it was a member of Stan's family they had converted - Stan had even more reason to hate Gary.

Besides, if you look at how quickly and sheep-like the townsfolk follow fads (Chinpokomon, metrosexuality, etc.), then it's not really THAT unrealistic that Randy changed his religion in no time. At least not by South Park standards, anyway...

That has got to be one of the ABSOLUTE STUPIDEST THINGS I'VE EVER HEARD!  Dreamworks removed all the commentaries just to not offend some actress who probably makes too much money as it is?  I mean, what the hell?  Good thing that Matt 'n Trey had the power to switch distributors!  By the way, I borrowed the season one DVD from my library.  I also noticed the mislabeling, not to mention the complete lack of extras.  I'm also glad to hear that I wasn't imagining things when I thought that the sound and picture weren't exactly the best quality.  I see no reason why the production of the DVD should have been rushed.  But I'm glad that Matt 'n Trey have now changed the situation.

It's true that Randy is one of the stupidest people in South Park.  So I guess it is possible that he'd think that he can suddenly convert and his family would all of a sudden like each other more.

You can download the commentaries for season 1 if you look around the net. I recommend it, they're really funny. The only downside is, most of the download sites I've found have the commontaries in QT format.

Cool, I'll go look for the commentaries online.  Come to think of it, it probably was WB, not Dreamworks, but who cares, the commentaries shouldn't have been removed in the first place.  Anyway, finally, a new episode tonight!  I lost count of how many had aired already, but how many new episodes of season seven are left?

Mr. Hankey will probably make a small appearance IF there is a Christmas episode (like he did in Red Sleigh Down), but I sure as hell hope they don't do an episode focusing on his family. They were so annoying!!!

Anyway, the new episode recently aired in America, right? What was it like?

Pretty good. It gave Rob Reiner and the militant anti-smoking croud what for. So I liked it. But as was mentioned in the show itself. The show is getting formulaic.

Well, it's pretty obvious that Matt'n'Trey don't like the "holier than thou" Hollywood types, that's for sure. I didn't even know Rob Reiner was so anti-smoking, or did they make that up for the show?

And I agree with mazaite. The show is getting pretty formulatic. The more they make fun of the show being formulatic, the more it'll rely only on those jokes (re: The Simpsons.)

I thought it was great, the show is getting a tad formulatic but a few episodes eariler in this run seem to have broken away from that a bit ("Casa Bonita" and "Christian Rock Hard" come to mind).

I cannot say whether this was a good or bad episode.  While watching this episode, I ran into a similar problem that I encounter when watching certain Futurama or a Simpsons episodes.  Namely, I wasn't familiar with the star that they were making fun of.  I've heard of Rob Reiner before, but I don't know who he is or what he does.  I'm not a big movie watcher, as you can probably tell.  Is Rob Reiner a fat ass? 

Anyway, the stuff in the beginning of the episode was really funny, with the motivational stuff and the school burning down.  By the way, in the promos for the episode, they showed Butters peeing in his pants, but it turned out that wasn't in the episode itself!  What's up with that?

Sometimes networks use deleted scenes (this was probably a deleted scene) as part of the promos, which for the record has nothing to do with the producers of the show generally.  You may notice that lots of Simpsons promos have used deleted footage for whatever reason.  In this case its a shame the gag wasn't there as Butters is possibly my favorite character.

I finally saw the movie recently (taped it off Comedy Central) and goddamnit those songs won't leave my head.  Great movie though, I must say I was a little shocked out good it was.  Very interesting little commentary.

The same with me. I'm also not sure if portraying Reiner as a (former) chain smoker who has to eat all the time when not smoking was funny or not. I was expecting to see him smoke but that didn't happen. I did like the anti-smoking people in the beginning.

Hmmm... I would have expected commentary from Matt & Trey to be a lot funnier than that. Still, I'm not complaining - as it's great that the DVD's finally DO have commentary. Now if they could just come out in Australia...   smile

Also, I never noticed this before - but Trey's normal speaking voice sounds a helluva lot like Randy Marsh, as does Matt's with Gerald Brovlofski. And, yes - I'm aware this was mentioned in a FAQ at South Park Studios, but I had completely forgotten about this until now.

Oh, okay then. From what I read, what Reiner proposed wasn't all that bad (a tax on cigarettes to fund early child development programs). Certainly not enough to warrant the attack. But I think Matt'n'Trey were just looking for a big fat guy to make fun of.

I liked Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000, Tooth Fairy's Tats 2000, Timmy 2000, Quintuplets 2000, Cartman Joins NAMBLA, Trapper Keeper and Fat Camp. Also, Fingerbang, Fourth Grade and Do Handicapped Peopl Go To Hell had their moments. Still, Season 4 contained some REALLY shit episodes.

Season 6 is definately my favoutie season. Episodes 611-617 were some of the best episodes South Park had ever seen, and the first ten were brilliant too. Even the worst episodes of Season 6 were better than the worst episodes of other seasons, and that's what made Season 6 so damn good. That's my opinion anyway.

Yeah 6 was my favorite too, even though I liked the first half of it more, the whole season was awsome. That season was what put South Park over all other shows on TV for me. It was funny enough to make you laugh until you could hardly breath, and yet most of the episodes had social commentaries that where just as well developed and profound, as the social commentaries seen in most great works of literature from the early 1900's (Like "The Rocking Horse Winner" for example). Truly brilliant television.

Couldn't agree more there, although I prefer the second half to the first half (not that the first half didn't have it's moments. Professor Chaos kicked ass!  smile)

Still, Season 7 so far has become very forumlaric, and it has yet to top Season 6. However, it has had it's moments...

opinion anyway.

'Chef goes nanners' is my favoirte episode ever,'wacky molestation' adventure is also absoloutley fantastic 'helen keller the musical' i also like'd a lot. 'pip' i think is brilliant as well.
oh in fact i also like cheroke hair tampons and part 2 of do the handicapped go to hell called 'probably'

oh hang on that just leaves the music chirstmas special, not that good admittedley
could you be more specfic about which episodes you dont think were good

because except the christmas one and
quinteplets 2000 i think there all fantastic.
(and the only reason i dont like quintplets as much is because I dont know what it refers to. also the christmas one isn't a normal episode.)

as you say its opinion but i just didn't like the way you said you thought they were shit

as you say its opinion but i just didn't like the way you said you thought they were shit

I didn't say I thought they were shit, I said that I thought it contained SOME shit episodes. Also, the music Christmas episode was from Season THREE, and Matt & Trey only did that because Mary Kay Bergman (the voice of all female characters on the show) sadly passed away a few weeks earlier, and they couldn't find a replacement in time. Since the voice clips for the songs had already been recorded before her death, they decided to do a Christmas special revolving around that. Mary Kay Bergman's tragic death is also the reason why most late Season 3 episodes didn't contain many female characters.

The episodes I thought were shit was A Very Crappy Christmas (the one with Mr. Hankey's family) and Cherokee Hair Tampons. I didn't laugh once at either of them.

Some of the Season 4 episodes I'm not too fond of (Pip, Do The Handicapped Go To Hell, Probably, Hellen Keller! The Musical, Whacky Molestation Adventure) just seemed really lame and boring to me. However, these episodes are all filled with references and parodies of things that I am not familiar with (Great Expectations, many specific things about religion, the Hellen Keller story, Mad Max, etc.) so you can see why I don't really find them that funny. There was also the Fingerbang episode and Fourth Grade. Both of which had their moments, but were brought down by several try-hard attempts at humour.

Still, I loved Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000, Tooth Fairy Tats 2000, Quintuplets 2000, Timmy 2000, Cartman Joins NAMBLA, Chef Goes Nanners, Trapper Keeper and Fat Camp. I guess I was being a bit too harsh with Season 4 before, but still - it definately could've been a lot better. Also, Quintuplets 2000 was referencing the whole "Elian Gonzales" issue in early 2000. Do a Google search or something to get more information on it.
