I love the monkey that doesn't help Cartman spell right in the spelling bee. Kyle & Rebecca part was interesting (Maybe not as cute as Kenny & Kelly as I said in "Rainforest Shmainforest") , but they were interesting.
Speaking about Kelly. I read somewhere, that she was suppose to appear in this episode too. I will try to watch again. Maybe I'll catch her.
Stan sometimes surprises me, what is going to come out of his mouth. "What a bunch of nerdos'
Favorite South Park Character: *too many* But I like Kenny,Kyle,Cartman,Butters,Satan,& Damien.
Remember DIO and their greatest of all hits! I can't count the number of good and bad fics I've seen set at this "bay of pigs memorial dance" too. Wonder why Stan and Wnedy didn't go together
Basically they're saying the social skills assimilated through attending public schools are the most important aspect of growing up . And we see dramatic changes in the Cutswald kids after just a few days of interacting with the public school kids. Rebecca magically loses all her inhibitions and her brother instantly becomes popular by beating up Kyle (by the way, where did he learn to fight?) And what lesson did we learn from Stan - that bullying Pip was perfectly okay?
So aside from the main point of the episode, I liked it a lot.
The speed at which the dammage wrought by home schooling is erroded is slightly over-egagerated, but then again, i became a totally new man in a matter of months after discovering teh internets so... it could be kyle's magical charms? Better dramatic effect than a protracted change over the seasons I'm sure you'll agree?!
The other main lesson; never f*ck with a posh kid!
DID I SAY DIO ROCKS!
I can't argue with your personal experiences with home-schooling; I can see how it can have disadvantages for a number of reasons. My main contention here is that the argument against home schooling seems to be too oversimplified to be credible.
I think the lack of socialization could be offset somewhat if a parent is motivated to find groups for their kids to join (scouting for example.)
The only reason the argument was oversimplified here, i believe, is because it's more funny/dramatic (and what matters in a tv show? message or effect?) and it's probably true in a lot of cases of home schooling when the parent takes the kid out because they don't like what's being taught (liberal morality, evolution, etc.) as most home schoolers in the US are, as this often accompnaies a big fammily unit which the child rrely leaves or feels inclined to leave, as the family is so strong... if what i've seen on TV about it is true :p seriosuly, the home schooled kids on TV are all from families with about 12 children who own a ranch. Though like all one-off caractars in South park, they were pretty 2D and on the extreme end of the spectrum.
Fave ep: ESM Season 12,Sec fave: Butterballs Season 16
I wish they would bring back Mark and Rebecca.
I think this was one of Kyle's greatest roles.
and "Holy Diver" is a song that you hear once, and you cannot get enough of!
Very funny episode too: Tying up Mark to a bench, Cartman spelling "Chare"
I am a hybrid of Butters, Tweek, and Clyde.
