Could also be a reference to the movie "War Games" where the computer made the launch of the ICBM's look real to the humans, but the computer was only playing a game.

And what about last year's "WATSON," the IBM computer that played on Jeopardy? Could Funnybot be a reference to that, only here the computer was telling jokes instead of merely answering questions?

Funnybot, the robot, was so-so. I did like his catchphrase: Awkward! Great shots at Tyler Perry as well. However, I was more scared for the kids of South Park than laughing most of the time, because I would be heartbroken if any of the important kids died. It would have been fine if Kenny died, but if Butters, Wendy, Craig, Clyde, Token, Timmy, Tweek, Bebe, Red, and/or Kevin ended up dead, I would be in a fetal position crying and convulsing. The same goes for Stan, Kyle, Jimmy, and surprisingly, even Cartman. So this was more of a nail biter than a laugh riot. I liked how they buried Tyler Perry instead of Funnybot. I guess Funnybot learned his lesson. Is Funnybot going to become the next Towelie? P.S., with Token's lines tonight, the only kids from the big 14 SP kids yet to speak this season are Wendy, Tweek, Bebe, and Red.


Don't forget garrison. I want to hear him again.

While most of Funnybot's jokes were lame (intentionally so) I did get a good laugh out of him when he opened fire on the audience. That was pretty good.

They should have given Louie CK a line. I saw him among the comedians.

Star Trek? I saw that thing and instantly thought Doctor Who. That 'bot even had the Dalek plunger! I LOL'd when it finally shouted "Exterminate!"

:lol:

That part where funnybot plugged into the terminal though, was more of a Star Wars reference, as that's what R2-D2 always did.

No mention of Timmy's band? I thought that was great. Good to see he's kept up with that!

Also: Didn't think of WATSON, good catch ZZ.

BRILLIANT! I loved it. I'm not into over-analyzing right now so I'll just say it gets a 9 out of a 10 for me. The ending was amazing. Good classic SP humor. Yet it touched on what most of us were probably looking forward to it touching on. So, brilliant!

I think the episode's pretty good. I was expecting more, but I received what was needed, so I'm a happy customer. :) I don't really feel like reviewing this one right now... lol

AHAHAHAH! I thought the same thing. As soon as Funnybot appeared with the toilet plunger for an arm, I thought, "Dalek." I replayed the "Exterminate" part 3 times just to make sure I heard it right. :lol:

I believe this is the first-ever Doctor Who reference on South Park, is it not? My two favorite shows collide! *

K-10 in Go God Go XIII was a Doctor Who reference.

Yeah, I thought about that the other day. I should put "REVERSE THE POLARITY OF THE NEUTRON FLOW!" back in my signature soon anyway. :lol:

And Double Z, the Daleks were first shown in the second ever episode of Doctor Who (the "original" series), which pre-dates the Star Trek series premiere by almost three years. But it could be a reference to both. I just think it's more of a Doctor Who reference.
