Pre-School: Episode 810
For five long years, Stan, Kyle, Kenny, Cartman and Butters have kept a secret about an illegal incident that happened back in pre-school. Now, the kid who took the fall for the group, Trent Boyett, is getting out of “juvie” and his first order of business is revenge.

Isn't this a parody of yet another film that I can't remember?  I finally realized that last week's was a rip on "Poltergiest," but is this one a parody too?  It seems interesting, possibly, but I haven't been too thrilled with the second part of season 8.

The plot sounds familiar, but it sounds like the plot of about a dozen and a half different thriller movies.

I went to go buy the South Park DVD today with one of my friends only for us to both awkwardly realize they hadn't released it yet. The date must have been pushed back again.

At least I got some music today.

I think they've stopped releasing it on DVD/video here, we got the first four series a little over a year after they were made, no sign of any later series though  hmpf

Looks like tonight's episode ripped off "Futurama".  When the pre-school teacher beeped twice, the cop said "Yes, yes", similar to how Zapp interpreted a double beep in "Where No Fan has Gone Before".

Of course, both shows were ripping off/paying homage to ST anyway, so....

Nah, I though the same, but I realized they both just had the same parody and both used the obvious gag given the situation.

While I noticed that too, I'd probably chalk it up to coincidence.  It is a fairly obvious joke to make when spoofing that "Star Trek"....thing.

Good ep though, solid all around.  Liked the references to past shows at the end.

Shit, my download is going fast! A minute ago I had started, and now I have 20%, no make that 25% done!

Preschool sounds like an okay episode. I'll edit this post and make a review in the near future.

EDIT:

Review: This episode totally sucked. It was a big letdown, especially after the succesful "Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes," which was great. This week's episode, however, didn't make me laugh once, and the story was such a cliche.

I've never posted on this thread before as I hadn't seen it 'til now, but I am a big South Park fan, and I did love tonight's episode (and also noticed the "yes, yes" thing)... very amusing.

While last night's episode may not have been a festival of laughter, the storyline had me gripped. I also now feel tempted to give someone a Texas Chili Bowl.

I liked it more than 808 but not more than 809. It was a good episode, lots of laughs. The type I'd rate 4/5.

It wasn't brilliant but it's definitely my favourite out of this second half. I did like the "Boooobs" joke as well.

Also is it just me though, or did Shelly sound quite different from how she usually does?

I've noticed a difference in the way Stan and Cartman sound (voices are a little deeper), and I've been wondering if Trey is just trying to make them age a bit.

I think its more just a change in Trey's own voice as he gets older, as opposed to a concious choice.

Well, Mary Kay Bergman, the woman who originally did all the voices for the show, did kill herself about five years ago. However, the Shelley voice sounded almost the same in the Russell Crowe episode...paradox. Explode. Got it.

Anyone else notice that Shelly's been in 3 episodes in a row now? I think that's the most straight episodes she's ever had a speaking part in. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Speaking of changing voices, did anyone hear that the Mayor's voice changed in "Douche and Turd"? It's a completely different actor.

I finally got around to seeing Something This Way Wall*Mart Comes. A great, solid South Park episode. The best bit was easily the many forms of Wall*Mart, though.  laff

I thought it could've been a little bit funnier, though. I mean, the running gags in this felt a little weak. It was by no means a bad episode, I just felt there were a few too many missed opportunities for jokes here. Still, a good all-around episode. Now to get a copy of 810... I hate being behind with episodes.

I caught the end, maybe the last 10 minutes, not really enough to give my proper opinion, but I did like the boooobs joke at the very end.

Woah, newhook's right. I saw her in 810 and thought to myself, man, we haven't seen her in a while, and yet she was in the previous two episodes! Am I dumb, or just unobservant?

Probably just unobservant... I don't know how big her role in 810 was, but you probbaly just forgot that 808 and 809 both featured scenes that took place inside Stan's house at the dinner table, and she's always in scenes at the dinner table, even if she rarely has roles in episodes anymore.

I found this review on Amazon.com, and just thought it was so kickass it deserved to be posted (the best bit being near the end). Has been completely unedited by me. Though, now that I think about it, is scares me that people can be this stupid and still be allowed to have kids.

South Park - The COmplete First Season

This is the worst, most offensive show I've ever seen, and tge LAST thing I'd want my children to watch. As a working mom, I know how important it is to give children good entertainment (I surely know no man could ever be of any help; NO child needs a worthless slob father) and seeing this filthy trash advertised as "Fun For The Whole Family" disgusts me. Every episode features a lot of swearing, insults, and the child named Cartmen dies in every episode. Death to an innocent child is NOT funny! Perhaps I would enjoy this show at least a LITTLE if it was advertised for what it truly is, an ADULT show. But, no. There's no warning at the beginning of the episodes, there's no rating, and on the DVD set I got my six year old for Chirstmas, there are obviously children geared advertisemnt at the beginning with two cowboys entertaining some children. Then, it quickly disintegrates into filthy, rude, sexually related humor, not something at all appropriate for chldren. Besides the very shock of watching this, I know this garbage offends God, and his Almighty Word will one day get this awful show off the air and be replaced with Teletubbies, something much more appropriate for children and adults, alike.
Please forgive me, God. If I'd only known what was featured in this "show," I'd never have offended you so badly. This show forced me to have to re-baptise my children, and attend church twice as much. I promise, Dear Lord, I will NEVER lay my eyes on this trash again as long as I live. I have now done a service to the world by warning other, good, Catholic parents what really is featured in this offensive-to-God cartoon.

Ugh... I can't begin to point out how many things were wrong with that.

Anyway, new episode details from South Park Alliance...

Episode 811 - Quest for Ratings

The boys dive into the cutthroat world of television news in an all-new episode of "South Park" premiering Wednesday, November 17 at 10:00 P.M. (EST) on Comedy Central.

The boys of "South Park" produce their own morning news show on the school's closed-circuit television station and are immediately caught up in the intense competition for ratings in an all-new episode, entitled "Quest For Ratings," premiering Wednesday, November 17 at 10:00 p.m. on Comedy Central.

Cartman and Jimmy anchor "Super School News" bringing all the latest from South Park Elementary to their audience of four viewers. When the show faces cancellation, the boys refuse to give up. Committed to restructuring the program to attract viewers, Cartman will try anything to hook an audience.


Sounds great, I just hope it's not too similar to The Simpsons' Season 9 episode The Girly Edition.

Hmmm, this one could be really funny.

I've been somewhat disapointed with how this second half of Season8 has been. The episodes have been sub-par.

Really? I think the first one was crap, but if you ask me, the other two were top-notch. It's only a matter of time before Matt and Trey throw in the towel, though.

Blackadder: either that's the worst joke ever, or Kyle's Mom has been miraculously incarnated into human form.

Everyone else: Damn, I better get offline and do my homework now so I can actually watch the new ep.  Sure, "Simpsons did it," but it sounds like the sort of thing Matt'n'Trey could really get some good jokes out of.

That amazon thing might of been a joke, but there are really people like that out there, and isn't that what we really need to shelter our children from?

Plus this weeks episode sounds like it could be ok, not over the top, but average.

I think it sounds like it could be a lot of fun. My only concern is with the "to their audience of four viewers" bit... don't get me wrong, it's not a bad joke or anything, but it sounds like it could be the build-up to some really predictable jokes.

I just hope it doesn't end with the boys doing something extravagent that costs thousands for ratings, only to discover that they're only getting 5 viewers... and then are happy that they're finally getting more than 4. They've done jokes like that too many times.

Oh god, this was great! The episode started out with a newscast, and it was classic. I knew two minutes into the ep that this was going to be good. All newscasts were great, the punishment for Craig, "Suspension and his testicles removed," was funny, the "Animals Close Up With a Wide Screen Angle Wearing Hats" was classic, the boys on cough medicine was sweet, and Butters with reporter hair was cute.

Bender: Funny, funny, stuff  A+

I thought this episode was pretty dry overall.  It's still better than the first episode, but it didn't contain the laugh out loud moments I got from the last two.   The topic was relevant, especially considering one of my local news stations is called "action news", so they get points for that.  The ending was pretty poor though, it seems like Matt and Trey were the ones who ran out of ideas.  Maybe that's what they were trying to parody, but I didn't think it was that well done.
