I'm definatly going to have to get that...

I just saw the "Sea People" episode, that one was probably one of the funniest South Park episodes I have seen in a long time.

'Twas hose. Anyway, new episode info:

Episode 813: Cartman's Incredible Gift
After sustaining a severe head injury, Cartman appears to have the power to see into the future. South Park detectives are quick to enlist his help in cracking unsolved murder cases and Cartman is more than willing to help, for a price. In the meantime, a group of “licensed” psychics cry foul when Cartman refuses to join their ranks.

Hopefully, with all the psychics, this won't be too similar to The Biggest Douche In The Universe... or The Ned Zone from The Simpson's Treehouse Of Horror XV, which featured Ned getting a head injury and being able to see into the future, too.

Well, looks like there's no Christmas episode this year.   frown

I think the seeing into the future thing is just a common plot device in movies/comics/stories. I've seen it used in everything from Archie comics to big budget movies so I don't think there's any worries about this episode being a rip off the Ned Zone, because you can't really rip something off that was a parody to begin with. I too am worried about Matt and Trey retreading Biggest Douche territory as you mentioned, though.

Newhook - there still might be a Christmas episode, they still haven't released the description for 814, which is the season finale.

Besides, looking back, the past 3 Christmas specials have all aired as season finales, so I'm fairly confident there'll be one this year.

Oh that's right, I was thinking that the season was knocked from 14 to 13 episodes, but it was 15 to 14. Thanks for clearing that up, I left a "present" under your bed for you.   wink


And by present, I meant a "hose".

Yeah, Season 8 originally had the same number of episodes as Season 7 (15), but they cut it one short due to their work on Team America. Still, it's not the first season to have 14 episodes, Season 5 had the same number, too. However, this season's been a helluva lot better than Season 5... still not as good as Seasons 6 & 7 though, in my opinion, although came close with some episodes.

By the way Aussies, we're moving onto the second half of Season 8, starting with Douche & Turd next Monday.  smile

With regards to this week's episode being a knockoff of the Ned Zone, I think they're both "inspired" by The Dead Zone, which was based on a book and is now a TV Show on USA.

Personally, it reminds me of 'I'm A Little Bit Country', purely for the time-travely sort of vibe.

Well, I get that The Dead Zone parodies have been done before, I'm just concerned that it's airing so quickly after The Simspons' TDZ parody aired.

I'm hoping it'll go more-or-less into the plot about him helping the detectives, as that appears to be the only bit of this synopsis that hasn't been done before in the show. Who knows, it could even turn into a Minority Report parody.

New Episode Rating:

Cartman's Incredible Gift:

A pretty good story, but kind of predictable. The police being stupid and being tricked into believing something seems a little cliche in the South Park world. But, they did a good job on this episode, and they had some good jokes in it. Not really anything else to say about this episode, see for yourself.

Rating:  B

Not as good as SWMTWC, QFR, or SSWVP, but still a good episode. Not really one that stands out, but it was still okay.

This episode was OK. It was well written and funny and all, but it felt like a mish mash of past episodes(Including Biggest Douche). The episode wasn't bad, just formulatic.

A good episode indeed, yet it felt pretty unoriginal and had a great sensation of deja vu. It seemed like The Biggest Douche In The Universe, I'm a Little Bit Country, Little Crime Stoppers and The Jeffersons thrown into a blender. Yet, the plot was something different, although it was quite on the expected side at times. There were still some funny moments there and there, especially coming from the clueless police force. I did liked it, although it's clearly not one of the strongest showings of this season.

Let's see how the season's finale fares now.

It was ok, some good bits but nothing brilliant. Felt more like filler than any other episode of this second half so far.

Gonna have to agree with everyone so far on this episode - not a bad episode by any means, it was just really predictable and formuleric. It's basically this season's "Butt Out"... coincidentally enough, both episodes were the 13th episode of their season, too.

The cops' stupidity was funny in earlier episodes such as Li'l Crime Stoppers, although has recently become MUCH too predictable, and is now more annoying than it is funny. The only time I laughed at the cop this whole episode was his research on how a left hand could possibly look like a right hand.

I did like the opening scene, though - good to see Kyle getting some revenge on Cartman by encouraging him to jump off the roof. I also laughed my ass off at the serial killer showing Cartman his "work".  laff

Like I said before, this was by no means a bad episode. In fact, if this had aired in Season 6 (or possibly early Season 7), it probably would've been a lot funnier. Just way too many re-used material. I'm glad they steered away from The Biggest Douche In The Universe for the most part, although Kyle's attempts to proove Cartman's abilities wrong felt a little too similar to Stan's attempts to prove John Edward wrong... Still, the episodes weren't as similar as I was afraid they were going to be. Overall, not a bad episode, it just re-used a LOT of old things from the show. Could've been a lot better.

Has this red-headed detective guy and the whole PD basically replaced Barbrady now? I mean he's quite funny but I still would prefer to have old Barbrady around somewhere, while the latter's stuidity was pretty believable this new guy's attempts often seemed a little strained in this episode. A lot of the 'old guard' are being phased out now as people have said and while this is in some ways good (we wouldn't want things to stagnate) I can't help but think that characters like Barbrady and Miss Crabtree could have still been used a little more.

I think Barbrady still works for the SPPD - he had a fairly large role in Season 7's Toilet Paper episode, so they obviously don't intend to completely phase Barbrady out.

Barbrady was also in South Park Is Gay. It was just a little role, but he was there, and it was after the redhaired cop was introduced in Lil' Crime Stoppers. I think they use the red haired  cop because they can use him to parody cop movies. He works for Park County (Which is South Park and North Park combined, along with possibly other towns) and handles big things like murder and drug rings, while Barbrady is simply a local cop for local sized crimes(Like Vandelism).

"Butt Out" may have been formulaic, but it may have been the best episode that season.
Yeah, I'm going to have to agree with everyone else who he's agreeing with. This episode was pretty formulaic, and the ending wasn't really that strong. The psychics didn't really add anything either. Police stupidity got pretty old, but the left/right hand montage was great. And you can't go wrong with live-action footage ("Oh my God... it's a fried chicken sundae..." ).
Yeah, this really is one of those episodes that doesn't really fit in. It was still good, but it just didn't fit in with the rest. I think it's because the episode was on such a minor topic, that it couldn't really become anything other then what it was destined to be. Whatever...
Grade: 3.5/5

I only just got got around to watching it, it wasn't as good as last weeks but was still pretty cool, as others have said it is a pity Officer Barbrady wasn't in it though.

Further proof that Matt Daemon and George Clooney are pretty cool guys:

Q: What are your reactions to Team America?

DAMON: That's I think the fourth or fifth movie George and I have done together.

CLOONEY: And we've always wanted to be a puppet, so I must say that I would have been offended if I wasn't in it. I was thrilled. Don, you were upset that you weren't in it? But those guys are friends of mine. I helped them get their show on the air and was Sparky the gay dog and was in their movie. So part of the fun about being up here is that we get to be objects in that as well. So it's fine.

DAMON: Neither of us take ourselves too seriously. Plus, if you're friends with people who are comedians, you can always count on a comedian to throw you under a bus for a laugh whenever they can. It's what they do.

I would have thought they would have a sense of humour. On a side note, the second half of Season 8 just started a few minutes ago. It had a close up of the flippy haired goth in the intro now!  big grin

It's from an IGN interview with them about Ocean's 12. I read it just to see if they mentioned their apperances Team America.   wink

Episode 814:
Woodland Critter Christmas


And now a present for all the fans hoping for a Christmas episode -- your wish has been answered! In this week's episode, Stan is approached by the forest critters and asked to help them build a manger in anticipation of the birth of their Lord and Savior. Stan complies, only to find out that they serve a... very different Lord.

Hmmm, might be a nice little quirk that he dies in one xmas episode and is saved in the other.

But that episode looks, interesting...

I finally saw an episode from this season, the Paris Hilton episode.  What an episode, I thought Butters poking Paris' P***y was hilarious, and also the dog getting the gun in his mouth, I need to watch that in slow motion.

I just watched Woodland Critter Christmas and it had to be the worse South Park episode ever. It was really too lame and gross.
