Annoyed? Which part in particular?
What do you mean, which part? The ending. The last... three minutes or so of the last episode.
Up until then, it was Mysterion's story. But nope, we're not going to give you the ending to Mysterion's story, it's actually all about Mintberry Annoying-ass Crunch, because f*ck you.
I seriously can't watch that episode all the way through anymore. It pisses me off too much.
My personal favorite multi-farter has got to be the "Go God Go" saga. As a militant atheist, I find it rather peculiar to be made fun of by a couple of irreligious guys who feel the need to send love letters to religion every so often. But it's not so much the message, which I do find somewhat relevant, as it is the story arc connecting Cartman's obsession with Nintendo Wii and Dawkins' unlikely crush on Garrison into one fucked up adventure that makes this two-farter so special. So very special.

Really? What, because South Park isn't capable of ending the story they began? Nope, I call horseshit on that.
What if, say, Imaginationland had turned into Snarf's f*cking story in the last few minutes? That would have been lame. But it wrapped up beautifully, and it deserved the awards it won.
Now, don't misunderstand me. Mysterion Rises is my favorite episode of South Park. The trilogy could have been absolutely amazing. But the cowardly and annoying character who runs away and has a voice like a dental drill should not get the big ending. I think if they had carried the story through, it probably could have deserved awards as well. But they didn't.
They dropped a lot of balls in the last episode, to be honest, but it still could have been salvaged.
Hell, if Kenny had confronted Cthulhu and Cthulhu had just shrugged and been like, "Sure, dude, I like you. I think you get me. I can do you a favor and bring back your friends. And hey I'm kind of tired, think I'll just go home now." (only in mimes and grunts) it would have that South Parkian sort of anticlimactic climax, still would have pissed off Cartman, and maybe wouldn't solve the full mystery of Kenny's story, but it wouldn't have made me want to put a brick through my TV.
One of the only other times they sort of pull a stunt like that is in Stanley's Cup, and that episode commonly comes up in the discussions of the worst South Park episodes of all time (for a lot of reasons, but the tacked-on and unsatisfying nature of the ending is one of them.) It's actually not a stunt they pull all that often, is what I'm saying, and it's not one they generally get away with.
