Pretty quick resolution to this story, but man was that funny. Pardon the pun, but I was totally on board with this episode.

Cartman's catch phrase for the episode didn't wear too thin. It was used just enough and in the right places to keep it funny.
I liked Ike in the scene where he & Butters talk to that one pirate.

The first half of season 13 was pretty solid. Lots of good stuff. The renaissance continues.

Oh god, that would have been the weirdest combination of sad and hilarious. Which is saying a lot for South Park.

The ending almost seemed kinda rushed, but it was still great.
I kinda wonder what happened next, but really, that isn't necessary as part of the episode. They ended up going home next, right? Nothing particularly interesting.

Overall, great episode. Tied to current events, but not something that would lose its humor with zero knowledge of current events. I was afraid that the kids would lose some time to adults after ending up hostages, but they didn't. Now that I think about it... it WAS a kids-being-kids episode!
I loved how Kyle and Stan were discussing over the phone that Cartman was gone. And even though I saw it coming that Kyle was about to find out that Ike had gone to be a pirate and Kyle would go after him, I still loved it. And Cartman getting all the pirates to follow him? That is exactly what we should have expected from our Cartman! How on earth did I forget?

Oh. I love all of season 13's references to past episodes. Don't know why, but that makes me happy.

i'm so happy because this was everything I could have asked for in a southpark episode.

cartman as a pirate.
butters announcing the day's learned moral at the end (INSTEAD OF KYLE !)
ike talking.
and an overseas adventure, that was just about the kids. not the pirates, not the adults, just the 4th grader characters.

please make more adventure episodes like this one!

The inevitable pirate episode...loved it! Definitely one of the best of the season. As a former Navy guy, I had to laugh at the French sailors not knowing port from starboard (maybe they were thinking wine).

And what up with Butters and the nipple ring? (or does he just have non-matching areolas - LOL)

The Susan Boyle reference seemed kind of rushed and obligatory, though ...

For me, I like that it's a Cartman episode, but they didn't rely on fatass being a big racist dickhole. I mean there was some of that, but it wasn't integral to the plot. El Gordo was far less dickish and instead, they utilized his ignorance and vivid imagination for a great story. In short, it was classic Cartman more than modern Cartman.

"They were French, so they surrendered right away."

Did I get it right? I love that quote. It made laugh. Actually, during this episode I laughed so much that I had people going, "BE QUIET!!!" Hypocrites.

OMG that episode was funny! I'm not sure if this was my favorite episode, it's a toss up between this and fishsticks.

Still I think it was a great way to finish the mid season finale.
Cartman is back to being him again (like in the old school episodes) and was amazing.

But I have to agree with what people have said, the ending did seem as though it was rushed.

Well, now we have to sit tight till October... it's gonna be a long wait...

To my mom? Probably not a good idea. Thanks for the advice, though! And oh, yes, the lightsaber... I love that lightsaber so much.
Thanks for assuring me about that quote, too.

That was great! I loved all the references to previous episodes like with Kevin and the lightsaber and the gingers not having souls.

I'm not sure why, but when I saw Butters in his pirate get-up the first time I laughed until I cried. Most adorable pirate ever and that's saying something since Ike was pretty frickin' cute.

I wish the one pirate who gave the heartfelt speech could have escaped and somehow wound up getting to go to school. That was the only part I didn't like. Don't get me wrong, I thought the snipering of all the pirates in like .2 seconds was hilarious, I just don't think the one who gave the speech should have been killed.

I guess Ike can just speak now. Has he done any babbling since the Miss Teacher Bangs a Boy episode or has it all been clear?

Too bad the radio active fish couldn't have somehow been turned into a fishsticks joke, but I thought it was a hilarious little moment anyway.

And yet another fantastic song.

P1 of Season 13 is officially the season of songs in SP.

Long wait til the fall, but at least we can rewatch these.

HAHAHA - AHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAaaa!!!!!
HAHA HAHA... HA... Ohmygod, perfect end to the half-season. two light-sabers up!!

And Diabeteth? SO raising my hand. Kyle had it coming, he really did. never mind that he was so 'supportive' and 'helpful' at the beginning, oh no -- of course Cartman was going to be a total assh*le. Just like the Cartman we know and love!!
