Yeah, I think that was Jesus. Did anybody catch Jesus in the SP movie when he's in the squad of soldiers?

If you look really hard he actually has his own special uniform he wears while in the army, sort of a camo version of his robe.

Hmmm, I smell a new storyline. Instead of Kenny dying every week, let Jesus die in every episode and get ressurected.

I doubt it. I'm A Little Bit Country aired well over a year ago...

I think they just put every character in "I'm a Little Bit Country". If you look really close, Miss Chokesondick is in the choir at the end of the episode as well.

Woah, I never noticed that before.

Anyway, I've been watching my Season 1 & 2 tapes again lately. I've forgotton so many funny things from those episodes, such as Mr. Mackey referring to shit as "Mooky stinks", and the entire Chamber of Farts scene from Cow Days is classic... especially when they drive past that doll with an ass hanging out the front of its pants, and Stan just says "What the hell was that?"   laff

Also, Roy from Clubhouses was such a good character... especially when he acts as if he's known Stan for years when they first meet.
"Roy's a dick!"   tongue

Ah, so many good moments... even in its early days, South Park still managed to be one kickass show.

Personally I think is was in many ways better then, the animation was simpler and it was more "on the edge" than other cartoon of the time.

Chinpokomon rocked. As did the idea of Ro-Cham-Bo. And the "Kyle's Mom's a bitch" song. I find myself humming that a lot.

I still say the shining moment of the Chinpokomon episode was when they were in the testing lab getting shown commercials. Super Wacky Action Bike and Alabama Man had me laughing so hard I was rolling on the floor.

The series finale should belike this.

the boys go on individual adventures and end up coming together for one big event.

they should also make it into a hour long special.

It would probably be a much better idea if they hadn't done the meteor shower trilogy already. And they would never be able to fit four decent storylines in half an hour. South Park just isn't that kind of show.

I was watching Cat Orgy earlier and I realized that Cartman and Shelly would make a great couple. They should have them hook up at the end.

And another thing. Is Scott supposed to look like a dick?

I'd like the final episode to be a call back to episode 704 Cancelled, with the entire earth being destroyed at the end.

*Edit* Or better yet, explain that Earth (The reality show) is going into reruns, I think it would be quite clever as the South Park would be going into reruns after the last episode.

They should also make fun of the little gimmicks Comedy Central always seem to do when airing reruns - such as the "Most notorious" episodes, the "Class president" vote & now the "27 best episodes" thing.

And with Foxtel, I can finally watch these interviews. Hurrah!

I also saw their interview on Leno last week... I loved Trey's impression of the puppet turning to his friend on the first day of filming.  tongue

I fear that the SP episodes premeiring soon won't be any good.  Parker and Stone so much as admitted they were working on "Team America" up to the last minute and they had no ideas for SP.  That's definately not a good sign.  We'll probably just get some cobbled together episode about, um, (what's popular in the news today?) John Kerry or something.

A clip show doesn't sound to far-fetched with their current "Team America" situation. Meh, somethings better than nothing.:/

Even if the something is worth nothing.

Evan - most South Park episodes are written in a rush, anyway. They usually don't start until a week before the episode goes to air... that way, it helps them keep up with the sattire. Besides, the movie's out tomorrow, and the episodes don't premiere for over another week after that - I'm sure they'll manage, and I'm sure the episodes will kick ass.

Anyway, word Team America has finally began to circulate down here - every station mentioned it on the news last night, also making reference of Sean Penn's letter, the cut sex scene & the public outrage expressed by some White House officials. It's funny, because hardly anyone from the general public has expressed outrage, really just professionals who this movie affects. These reports are pretty much just getting more free publicity for Team America.  tongue

Also, more great news concerning Australia - South Park, Season 8 premieres here on SBS, at 8:30pm, Monday the 25th of October. Hurrah!

The funny thing about the whitehouse being outraged is the fact that the right wingers are portrayed as clumsey but good natured heros in the movie, while left wingers are really ripped on and made out to be evil. I got my ticket for the 7:00 Friday showing today.

Don't forget, Matt and Trey are on Late Night tonight.

The reports definately made it sound as if there was more outrage than there really was.

"Presidents and puppets! The outroar over a new puppet movie, poking fun at the war on terror!"

Wow, they're saying "presidents" and "puppets" as if they're 2 different things...   roll eyes

I liked when some White House rep commented on how people didn't make light of the Nazis and WW2, so they shouldn't make fun of the war on terror. After this comment was released, Matt commented on how just about every cartoon from the 40s made light of the nazis and the war.

It'd just make me feel better if I knew Matt and Trey planned the stories out more than a week in advance.  You know, to give them time to re-write episodes, scrap ideas that aren't very good, or only animate the best ideas. Just because they theoretically can complete an episode in a few days doesn't mean they should.

I saw part of the 'Team America' thing on SBS News yesterday.
Anti-terror guy: Don't worry, I've got 'im!
(fires RPG, misses Osama, knocks down the Eiffel Tower, which in turn destroys half of Paris)
Anti-terror guy: Damn, I missed 'im!
Just seeing that made me want to go out and fly to the US just so I can see it.

First of all: http://www.drudgereport.com/penn.htm

I give it an A-. The lost potential that can be seen with some of the gags is at times heartbreaking (especially with the factastic Moore puppet), but the movie did have a South Parkish satire to it, and overall the laughs kept coming.


I'll tell you what some of my favotire bits and lines were.

Gosh, none of those really sound that funny to me at all.  I'm a pretty big fan of "South Park," I thought the last few seasons were drastically improving and really funny.  So I can't claim to be "anti-Matt'n'Trey."  But none of the "Team America" previews I've seen made me laugh in the slightest. 

This isn't from a political standpoint, it's from a humor standpoint.  Perhaps seeing a puppet vomit for 5 minutes just doesn't appeal to me.  Perhaps the concept of "puppet sex" is funnier than it looked.  I think Matt'n'Trey's explination of the movie was funnier than any clips I'd seen of it.  On a MTV inside-special, Matt did give the best TA line:  "The jeep doesn't have seatbelts, because seatbelts are for pussies."

It's not so much what's done, but how it's done. Puppet sex doesn't sound all that funny, but seeing two puppets who have no genitals "doing it" in 7 or 8 different positions was laugh out loud funny stuff(The entire cinema was roaring with laughter) because of how absured it was. Things are just handled in such an over the top manner, you can't help but laugh at them, much like South Park. Suffice to say I can't delve too deeply without posting some major spoilers, which I don't like doing. The humor is also layerd much like South Park, but once again I can't say too much with ruining the storyline. I think the fact that the film pissed off Sean Penn so much pretty much speaks for itself.

I'm sevetneen, but look like I'm fifteen, and bought tickets for someone who was sixteen. We never got checked for age once, so I think as long as you don't look like you're five you can just get in anyway. Most of those people selling tickets probably just don't care that much.
