Surprisingly, seeing Kyle getting the human centipede treatment did not gross me out much, probably because you don't actually see the crap itself. The cuttlefish/asparagus vs. vanilla paste gag with the Japanese guy was actually pretty funny, especially with Kyle muffling a la Kenny.
The Cartman subplot started off good, but the F-word double-meaning gag got too repetitive by the time the Dr. Phil segment came around (M&T should had saved the Dr. Phil spoof for another episode to avoid cluttering up the plot). Seeing him get struck down by God at the end was GOLDEN though, given how much I love to hate that fatass.
What really saved this episode for me though was M&T's underlying message about Jobs & Apple. With the Human Centipede reference, they are pretty much saying that Apple's technology is connecting us so much, that practically the only way we can be anymore connected together is to be surgically joined together mouth to anus. I totally agree with that, as well as the point of the need to balance creating the future with taking time to enjoy the present. I also liked the quick Apple-controlling-the-police mention (remember the Gizmodo/new iPhone saga?).
Finally, it's nice to see Craig get more screen time than he got ALL last season. Hope the same can be said for Wendy soon also. I miss them two so much!
Overall, a 7.2/10
Favorite Characters: KYLE -- STAN -- WENDY -- BUTTERS
Favorite Character to hate: C A R T M A N !!!
Favorite Episode: THE LIST
And I felt disturbed for Kyle having to eat sh*t, they already made him drink pee, what's next?
I tried to stay positive...but this was a piece of sh*t. Such a terrible, terrible episode.
What the hell was this episode even saying? That Apple sucks? BLEH.
Cartman continues to be a painfully unfunny character. "You f*cked me" stuff had me cringing. I'm embarrassed for Matt and Trey.
Yes, it was nice to see Gerald get some face time, but do that with an in-season episode. With the whole world watching, and with avid fans that have waited for months for the new season, you don't "bench" your home run hitter. In Randy we trust.

I don't know how I can wait a week for the next episode!

It's so much different now then before, his voice has been slowly changing throughout the seasons but this latest make over has made it a painful experience for me to watch. I've been a fan of South Park since episode 1, I remember watching every episode of every season since middle school...now I'm a college student working on my bachelor's and is depressing to see what has been done to the show.
Cartman was not witty nor funny..it felt forced, fake not like him. Yeah hes a douche bag, a racist hippie hating assh*le that made South Park the best show back in the day *along with the witty story lines* but the hole "you just f*cked me" felt really dry, especially with his new voice.
I expected so much more, the episode had a good start and yet right off the bat Cartman felt like he was trying too hard to be funny, as if to prove his still the same old assh*le he used to be...it felt fake and forced.
They could of done so much more, they never spoke about PC, they made a slight reference to it and just dumped it aside. I expected the kyle to be rescued by Bill Gates, that would have made more sense and it would have been funnier in my opinion.
The point of this episode was that people need to read the fine prints before they sign things, we sign our lives away to corporations like apple on daily basis without us knowing. Another point was to state how the future would be use eating each other's sh*t while feeding and powering apple, yeah, got it.
The ending was extremely disappointing and they REALLY, REALLY need to fix Cartmans voice else I will find it VERY hard to continue watching this show.
Funny you mention PC... in the part of the episode when the HumancentIpad was being "rescued" I thought it was PC stealing the prototype and Bill Gates was going to perform an upgrade or something. But no... it was just another test to get them to READ!
