Talk some more about South Park here  smile

I recently acquired series seven and eight and must say so far I'm impressed, they are getting better again  smile

I think Season 8 has been quite an improvement. Season 6 when they had Butters and Tweek as fourth friends just didn't make sense. It's not that either of them are bad characters, they just weren't meant to be used in every episode. It's not so much that they brought Kenny back that's making it good, it's just we're not getting sick of other characters.

Still though, some of those third grade episodes may never be topped.

Yeah, Season 7 and 8 are definately an improvement over some of the worse episodes, although It's Christmas in Canada wasn't very funny, except for the 'Follow the only Road' song. Is it a rule all cartoon comedies must put at least one Wizard of Oz reference in it's running?  tongue

You have missed some good ones, if you have a broadband connection they are easy to acquire, unlike FOX Comedy Central seem happy for them to do downloaded, if they weren't I'm sure the DL sites would have been shut down.

Well I loved 'Christmas in Canada' myself, especially the "'Zere's no Canada..." song.

I thought Christmas In Canada was one of the worst episodes, they put absolutely no thought into that. Especially since they aired it right after the one with the goth kids.

Dude, whatever you say about the episode, you gotta love "Zere's no Canada." I sing that to myself all the time.

I loved the Newfoundlander. First time I ever heard Newfoundland mentioned on mainstream American television. They got him perfect with the cap, oil skins with fish guts on them, and the fishing rod.

The point of the episode was to show how stupid many Canadian stereo types are. I think Trey has said that himself at one point.

I'm surprised that It's Christmas Time In Canada contained so many back-references to Not Without My Anus... I mean, that episode IS on regular rotation over here, but didn't it apparentally only ever air once or twice in America?

I always got confused with the episodes in which Butters and Tweek were there friends. What happened to Kenny in the first place? I think I saw him come back in a Christmas episode but I wasn't so sure how he disappeared in the first place.

In my defense, any episode where somebody goes to Canada is completely unmemorable. The Christmas episode, and the Terrance and Phillip episode had absolutely nothing funny. And no, I don't know what song you're talking about. I think so little of the episode I can't even remember what the hell happened in it.

Scott IS a dick.
And yes, unfortunately, they rarely ply NWMA over here. It's the one episode I haven't seen.. [And I've seen the video file of the very first South Park!] I need DVDs. Yup.

Why don't they play 'Not Without My Anus' often? Afraid of sparking outrage to the north, and subsequent invasion?

I think he had an uncurable disease that killed him forever. However, that didn't stop him in season 6.  wink

He died from a muscle disease in the second-last episode of Season 5, called Kenny Dies. This set the way for Butters to join the boys and get promptly kicked out. The boys then did a reality-show style way to pick another friend in Professor Chaos, in which Tweek won. Then Kenny came back in the final episode of Season 6 Red Sleigh Down.

I just saw "Kornís Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery" again and must say that I still find it quite funny.    A lot of it is just so cheesy, and the two graveyard wardens are quite funny.

That episode orginally aired on April 1st, and pissed alot of people off. If you want to know why, I recommend you download it. It's alot funnier if you see it first hand.

I just thought I'd mention the introductions of episodes in Series 1 by Matt and Trey, which are sometimes funnier than the actual episodes. Those guys are geniuses.

I like the ones on Season 2 where they're in the nursing home playing songs for old people...especially the one with Trey doing his own rendition of metal. "STRAIGHT DOWN FROM HELL!!! SATAN LOVES YOU!!!". The "raise the roof!" one was also funny.

I love the bit at the end of that episode where they explain everything, just because it makes even LESS sense.

"I don't think [Name of person I forgot] liked us. Maybe its because we had him drowning in shit."
"When we were asked to make a South Park Thanksgiving special, I thought-wouldn't it be great to have sex with Pamela Anderson?"

And talking about "Not Without My Anus", I loved how they had a scene where Cartman found out about his father in the background.

The scene you're thinking of is Terrance and Phillip watching TV and seeing South Park. It's just Mephesto going "And the father of Eric Cartman is..."

The best ending to an episode was at the end of Professor Chaos. "Those questions will all be answered...right now! No, Tweek, Ms. Chokesondick."

Wanna know some Spacedal info? I live like a cuople miles from South Park here in Colorado. Funny thing, I've been there and it's just land. No town, no fat black pizza dudes, no kids who swear a lot. It's nice.  big grin

It aired late last year, a few days after Saddam was captured in real life... as you can guess, it was the 2003 Christmas special.

It's not the most brilliant Season 7 episode (or the worst, for that matter) - but it's worth seeing.  smile

What do you think the worst Season 7 episode was? My worst one probably would be It's Christmas in Canada.

Oh, I've seen NWMA. It's not THAT much more offensive then your average South Park episode...

Worst S7 eh? Hmmm.... Can't remember....

My worst Season 7 episode would be It's All About Mormons. It just wasn't that funny, although it DID have its moments.

And NWMA isn't SUPPOSED to be offensive... it was an April Fools joke intended to piss off fans of the show who wanted to find out who Cartman's father is, thus forcing them to wait yet another few weeks for the real Part #2.

I'm inclined to agree although over all I think series seven was great  laff

I didn't like Christmas In Canada. I also didn't think the one with the detectives was that great either. However, it was very obvious the show was bouncing back.

I seem to be the only one here who quite likes "Christmas in Canada it Seems". "It's All About Mormons" was ok but I didn't find it as funny as most other episodes.
