Gerald, a cheesing addict? Totally did not see that coming. Made the episode all the more funnier. I loved the battle scene between him and Kenny, and it's really good to have good ol' Ken back.
Another one of my favorite parts was at the end. "Look you guys, now Kenny's just getting high on life." "Yeah, he's getting REALLY high on life..."...or something like that. It took me awhile to tap into the whole Anne Frank B story, God I hated that book... but I sympathize, being a Jew and all. I totally related to Kyle at the end, when he got pissed at Cartman.
God, there were alot of awesome parts to this episode... 9/10
"I don't need you anymore!"
"I know. I need you."
^Kyle and Stan.

I give the episode a 8.5/10
It had 3 stories put into one episode sort of like the simpsons, with Bart, Homer, and Lisa, on the science fair day.
Gerald, with he relapse, Kenny just getting ripped on the cat piss, while Kyle is trying to get him to stop, and Cartman with the Anne Frank, and the cats.
My favorite part of the episode was when Kenny was woken up by Cartman while he was stripping, and the he started to kick Cartman's ass.
I also like when Gerald and Kenny were fighting in the sandbox, when Sheila came to the scene her face was priceless.
And of course, Gerald with the homage of Elliot Spitzer speech.
This episode was by far the best of the season.
It would've been nice if they made it a trilogy of this story, either way, i give this episode, 9.5/10. It would've been 10 if it hadn't gone by so quick!
Rofish: I think tommorow.
+ All the main characters (Butters, Kyle, Stan, Cartman, Kenny) got screentime.
+It parodied a complete trash movie.
+Spot on Pacing, well executed throughout and never loses steam.
+Near perfectly captures the terrible animation of Heavy Metal.
+Cartman character development, he has a soft spot for cats.
-It's only 22 minutes long
Anybody who hasn't seen Heavy Metal should go and see it. There is no drug on earth that can replicate that movie.
Loved the fight scene with Kenny vs. Gerald (and the reality vs. tripping balls), and of course, once the "cheesing" plot started, it was amusing to see Cartman hiding all the cats (and of course, Kyle's bit at the end with him, for the allusion and all). I did notice the Mr.Kitty "gender" thing (and that Mr.Kitty looks a bit different now, I chalk it up to animation change), though it's minor.
Kenny was just awesome, for a character one isn't supposed to "understand". The tripping sequences were just hilarious, especially once Gerald got into it XD The music in the Cartman scenes was quite funny, too.
I know some'll complain "WHERE WAS STAN?", and yeah, Stan was noticably lacking, but really, seeing Kenny in a role, and the other character parts was great.
Minor things: I noticed Craig's sister in the sandbox scene (with a first line), though I wonder if they intended it to be the same character (her character model appeared in a few gym shots in past seasons). And Jimmy's replaced Pip in the classroom shots, quite apparent here too, boo. I know, "PIP IS NOT IMPORTANT" and all, but still, it's kind of odd not seeing him there. Pip, even though his last line was in season 6, was around longer than Jimmy (who in my honest opinion, wore out his welcome fast. At least with Pip, aside from "Pip/Great Expectations", they didn't shove him down the viewers' throats aside from him being the "annoying Frenchie" in episodes).
And for the record: I've been watching SP since season 5, thank you very much, and saw the first four seasons through reruns and a mom's friend's tapes shortly after. I know how 'better' some of the classic episodes are, but once in a while, you get REALLY good ones in the later seasons too.
Maybe some people liked this one, because, y'know, it felt like the CLASSIC SP to them? With Kenny and all? *though it's still in the vein of the new stuff somewhat, and with the different animation it couldn't be quite "old-school", but that's nitpicking *.
In the one cliffhanger before an ad break, I thought Kenny was gonna die when he collapsed.
It did feel somewhat rushed/fast-paced, though :/ Ah well. I'm gonna have to rewatch this one to take it all in and get possibly more of a 'review', I guess. Since ya know, you can't sound positive sometimes because some people ruin that and you get some folks accusing one of wanting to service Parker and Stone.
The "pee in the face" shots did get a bit drawn out, but thankfully, it wasn't repeated TOO much.
I think this episode's another bit of proof that Kenny can work as a viable character without having to be 'loud' and/or unhooded, though it's a treat to see him like that in the rare instances. It's just a shame that Butters mostly obsoleted him, Pip, and Tweek as the "unlucky blond" for the most part, but eh.
And you know, have people ever heard of *gasp* DIFFERING OPINIONS? Like, oh my god, people like this episode even though I don't/don't like it even though I do? DO GO ON! Like, wow! Get out of town!
Wonder what next week's episode will be...

South Park has been going downhill ever since Guitar Queer-o (or whatever was after the Imagination land Trilogy). I don't get how everyone liked this episode when it wasn't that good. I bet all the people that liked it just recently started watching SP and have seen no old episodes to compare it with.
On the contrary, I liked this episode and have seen EVERY episode before it. No old episodes to compare it to? It felt like Season 4 era Kenny reborn. I'm glad South Park's going back to the basics with episodes like this and The List where there are no current events and celebrity crap. Last week, for example, was a crapfest. Did you come in to the show late? Like, around Season 9? Because this is the South Park I remember and love.
