Although, I don't get why they called it "Tonsil Trouble" - the tonsils play such a minor role in the plot "HIV Trouble" or "AIDS Trouble" would make more sense.
CARTMAN 4 LIFE
Look, it is EXTREMELY important that this message gets to Mr. Parker and Mr. Stone. After several years of intense study, I have learned that both Matt and Trey hide the secrets of their message for each episode in that first scene of each episode. Hidden in plain sight, like the purlioned letter from Edgar Allan Poe. So, I was very angry when I found out they wussed out by making the Tonsil mistake not related to the Tonsilectomy at all. The whole point of that first scene was the final chance to undo the horrible manipulations of Doctors worldwide in tricking children into committing to something even grown adults avoid. Children are not stupid, sweet, and innocent, the whole point behind South Park in the first place. I grew up dealing with Doctors my whole life. I wanted them taken down by the only source I trust to destroy their credibility with the world. This was my chance for real REVENGE. Those doctors treat children like morons. I know South Park believes this because of twelve years of watching them take down everyone except the one guy who they like, the Dog Whisperer. Now, things are, of course, never going to be the same, like Comedy Central said, because now Kyle nad Eric are going to become real friends or the show is going to label them as such as much as possible while Kyle takes the offense and tries to finally hurt Eric back like Eric has always tried to do with Kyle. Mark my words, I know where the show is headed now. I just want Trey and Matt to write me back so we can talk about why they succumbed to the political pressure by the doctors to make the medical mistake not related to the Tonsilectomy like the Comedy Central commercial said it would be. Please help me deal with this. You would be playing Good Samitarian to another guy in a chair, like Timmy, but nowhere near as smart, cool, and awesome.

Good Job, Genius! You actually got both meanings of the same joke I laughed my ass of at. I thought it was slang for old-fashioned or meant classic. I have hemophilia, so my disease was never cool enough to get any funds, either.

(And Kyle and Cartman at the end finally reminded me of Spenny and Kenny. I'm surprised it took me so long to make that connection. Derp!)
(And PS: The point, that they don't rag you on because you should know this, is that of course Cartman is bad for infecting Kyle, but Kyle is bad for blatant insensitivity, and ultimately, despite being infected, attacking Cartman. All that rage on both sides makes them both to blame. Of course the "Cartman started it!" defence is still there, but again, I think this is a Kenny/Spenny situation. You know he's awful for doing it, but Spenny's really annoying sometimes, so somehow you feel obliged. I hope the hatred plays into other episodes well...)
And also, didn't this episode just feel looser? Makes the show feel even more instant. (I know I just called the same characteristic rusty... well, I'm a hypocrite)
Beofre I c/p the review I already typed up elsewhere, just a mention that gone are the days where I'd get insanely giggly over new SP episodes (my number one show for about a year and a half, then number two... now it's number seven), so gone are my overly biased stupid opinions. I was expecting this one to kinda suck and, well...
Side note: I really like that new styled opener.
As for the episode, it was mostly cute. I loved the Cartman/Kyle aspect of this because we actually saw them, well, really fighting. Not just yelling at each other or anything but Kyle's rage finally unleashing itself against Cartman to the point where he doesn't even try to fight back just made their general hatred more, uh, real? I'm really not sure but that's just how it felt to me...
4/5 because some parts really did drag. Magic Johnson wasn't as painful as I thought it would be, but yeah, that part did drag. The money WAS silly but at least I was getting that Africa shot I was expecting. And some parts with Cartman and Kyle arguing really did drag - the violence was so much more fun to watch.
At least they acknowledged the HIV positive joke was run into the ground (though it was funny at first), but they ran the joke-denouncing into the ground.
Still. Overall. Pretty cute, some laughs, I liked it.
That was awesome. Perfect way to start the season. Sorry, but I've always been amused by AIDS.
Even though it was a Kyle/Cartman-based episode, it was played out very different, and therefore I don't really consider it "formula", which is good.
I think Kyle pretty much had it coming. I know he and Cartman never got along, but I knew something bad would happen if Kyle laughed...and sure enough, he got AIDS. He laughed before though, so I can't give him sympothy.
I loved how every time people say Kyle and Cartman are friends, Kyle would say that they weren't friends, and that Cartman gave him AIDS, making them both look totally gay. Cracks me up! As did the whole "I'm not just sure, I'm HIV positive!" thing.
Ah, Cartman still is, and most likely always will be one of my top SP characters. XDD
Oh...and the cure for AIDS being cash? f*cking random, but awesome! XDD
EP RATING: 10/10 - Awesome way to start off the season!
...wow I haven't been this spazzy in ages. =P
If you want me to do a signature for you, PLEASE READ THIS FIRST!
In this episode most of the lines were forced, and it just didn't seem as creative as the ones in the past.
I'm not giving up hope just yet.
