Coming from the UK I have had to read Great Expectations in school and the South Park episode of it manages to keep the main plot pretty well and be very funny too. Reading over these comments I have just remembered that Pip has been absent for a long time, which is proably because his role has been superceded by poor old Leopold Stotch.

starone > yeah I noticed that, and it is quite true. Kenny has been a bit low-key since the Ladder to Heaven episode and the consequent "soul in Cartman's body" running gag.

Just wondering what season it is when kenny comes back to life? Thats the newest one iv seen in the U.K. Is it on season 8 now?

I hope south Park outlives simpsons, south park is much better in my oppinion.

Does anyone know time for new south park episodes on Sky ONe (in the U.K)?

Well, in ep 617, he randomly came back to life, and that being the last ep of Season 6, season 7 had Kenny in it, but he was killed in the last ep, 715. But in Season 8, he came back and got killed once again in 807. Does that mean we'll see Kenny in 806? Who knows...

I like it better when they kill him off sort of randomly like they are doing now. It's more unexpected, and I personally find it funnier.

I have read the book as well, but when did South Park do a Great Expectation episodes? Is this another one I've missed and seen out of nowhere, like the episodes where Cartman goes to juvy and Kenny becomes the next stunt whore?

Funny, all of those episodes are from Season 4, which was a bit complicated. You've got the first half, and then the second half in the fourth grade era. PS: It comes out on DVD June 22.
Anyway, the episode "Great Expectations" featured Pip and basically played out the entire book, South Park style. Go to www.spscriptorium.com  for more, just go to Season 4 in the ep guide.

Of course the pile of men having gay sex was there for a reason.  They were trying to make everyone gay so there would be no children and hence, no immigrants from the future.  Did you have the sound on while you were watching?

I thought it was a pretty good episode.  They took our jobs!  Since the concept of being booted out of my job by someone who'll work for a lot less isn't that far fetched, it made the episode even funnier to me.

I thought that the episode was again ok. Not brilliant but I did very much like the O'Reilly debate and "They took our jobs!".

I like gay sex for no reason, the one guy that mangled "They took our jobs" a la Coach Z[he's the very last one to run across the screen at the end], and this episode had some of the most beautiful animation in the whole run. Especially the news scenes and the opening shots. The ending song is very touching, too. However.. I mean.. I just really wasn't enthused about this episode as others, despite all that. To put it shortly, we're all still saying "That's ignorant.." around here.

I didn't like it as much as "The Jeffersons", but it was still a decent episode. It was pretty funny how everyone learned the little lesson as usual, but then they decided that having a huge gay orgy was less gay than cleaning up the earth.

You could really see Matt and Trey's political views showing here (We hate conservetives, but we really hate liberals" or something to that effect). I also like how Stan acted like Cartman throughout most of the episode, (weither it was intentional or not). Overall a good episode, it may not fall into my top 10 as "The Jeffersons" did, but it was good none the less.

'They tuek ur jirbs!'

The goobacks ep was a bit average in my opinion, there was too little of the boys I guess. Although I really liked the ending for some reason.

'OK, my bad. Back to the pile'

And the establishing shot was beautiful.

I mean in a couple of scenes. The hamburger was on of them. In fact I'm not sure what episode it's from, but if you took out "Goobacks" and replaced it with "Jews", then it's word for word the same as something Cartman said before in another episode.

My review of part one of season 8.

801. Good Times with Weapons
The Good: Let's Fighting Love song, the anime-style designs of the characters, Cartman's whining animation, the return of Professor Chaos, the surprise moral at the end.
The Bad: I had severe pity for Butters and some jokes were predictable.
Grade: B+

802. AWESOM-O
The Good: It's a Butters/Cartman centered episode, the "pleasure-bot" scene, Cartman's movie ideas, the scientest's "does this make me human?" speech, the stereotypical military generals, scientests, etc., Cartman dressed up as Britney Spears dancing with the Justin Timberlake cutout, Cartman giving Butters the suppository.
The Bad: The disappointment of no Lemmiwinks and Cartman's just not Cartman if he can't say what he wants.
Grade: A

803. Up the Down Steroid
The Good: It's an awesome parody of the anti-steroid films of the 80s-90s, Jimmy's biggest role in quite some time, Cartman's becoming a retard montage, Timmy's talk with Mr. Mackey.
The Bad: May make you feel guilty and unlike other episodes that just focus on certain characters, the rest of the kids just seem missing in this episode.
Grade: A

804. The Passion of the Jew
The Good: Mel Gibson's insanity and Cartman and Stan threatening each other over the phone.
The Bad: Not much funny, fake clips from the Passion of the Christ are oddly eerie and seem somewhat out of place on South Park (even with the lat picture), no father of Mel (who's ten-times more insane than he is), ending seemed too abrupt, Cartman forming a large cult-like group has been done before and was much funnier then, and this episode just seemed like it was made for the ratings.
Grade: D

805. You Got F'd in the A
The Good: Great parody of You Got Served, the I've Got Something in my Front Pocket song, the goth dance is somehow incredibly awesome, Jeffy the dancing duck, nice to see more kids, Lil' Kim's cameo, the somewhat predictable, but still awesome ending, and the tapdance championship flashback.
The Bad: Another episode where I feel an odd pity for Butters and the Raisins girl's dance was really badly animated.
Grade: A

806. Goobacks
The Good: Terminator references, aging liberal hippy douche, deals with a subject I'm very familiar with (my town's full of illegal immigrants), "The sad girl loves to put balls in her mouth" line by Mr. Garrison, and the ending song.
The Bad: The gay man orgy gets a bit too awkard at times (especially at the end), the goobacks were a little more plain-looking than I had expected, the "they took our jobs" thing got irritating and is something you know people are going to keep quoting for a while, and Stan seemed a little out of character at times.
Grade: C+

807. The Jeffersons
The Good: Marvin Jefferson's various catchphrases, the Thriller tribute, the social commentary on cops supposedly framing rich black people, Mr. Jefferson and Cartman singing, Stan's dream was funny yet awkward (which is why it's going to be good and bad), we get to see and hear Kenny without his hood on, and the moral and subplot (the ones about Blanket) were good.
The Bad: Stan's dream was funny yet awkward and there's not much to say about Marvin Jefferson/Michael Jackson that hasn't been said.
Grade: A

Am I the only person who was reminded of Coach Z of Homestar Runner with the "They took our jobs" line?

Goobacks was a pretty good episode. It made me laugh a lot and the ending was really funny.
I think it was the only episode this season that truely deserved a MA rating. I mean, there was not that much truely offensive humor at all this season (except for the killing Jews and Cartman's retarded act). South Park is slowly changing, in a good way.

I have still yet to see Goobacks, although I agree with OC_James' reviews. Especially his Passion Of The Jew review. Spot on there!

However, I personally would've given Good Times With Weapons an A, and Up The Down Steroid a B.

4. AWESOM-O
5. Up The Down Steroid
6. The Passion Of The Jew (ugh...)

I have still yet to see Goobacks. And, Starone - I think doing another anime weapons episode would destroy the unique-ness of GTWW. Best just leave it to one, I say.  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Well, it's just been a very strong half of the season.  I think Up the Down Steriod was good, but it had some tough competition. My top 3 episodes were all neck-and-neck, but I had to rank them.
