Okay, so good on you South Park for making an episode on bullying on the Day of Pink, I'm so proud... sniff. Also I'm glad South park brought back some good old characters into the show, Jesus and Red. I got all the references, even if I was told some, like Captain Kangaroo who was before my time, and that music video which was from Cypress Ranch. I've noticed M&T keep upping the ante for episodes, just like the bathroom scenes!
I felt awkward at the end even if I did know it was for KONY 2012, which I bought into, stupid me. To add insult to injury as I watched the episode I got the Joseph Kony little action kit with a T-Shirt and everything... smh. I was stupid when I first saw that video, but hey, I could care less now. Was an awesome ending!
Keep up the good work, two-parter maybe, a little drama maybe. I realize now after hearing the commentary for season 15, M&T would do more dramatic episodes, but it's not there strong suite and not really South Park, things must reset hence it's a comedy. I still want some drama regardless, it makes me happy enough to jack it San Diego, well not that much but that song is pretty damn catchy!
The bathroom gag was one of the better "overdone intra-episode running gags," IMO. Each variation felt fresh. Butters being bullied by his grandmother was a good plot, and I've always wanted to see more of the Stotches! (Although it seems like she's Linda's mom.) And I loved the San Diego song.
I agree with whoever said it seems like Red is going to become the new generic girl character. Also nice to see Jesus, Timmy, and Professor Chaos, but I'm still sad about no Garrison.
Favorite Characters: Randy, Yates, and Butters
Favorite Episode: Cartman's Incredible Gift
Favorite Pairing: Randy x Sharon
10/10 for me. Hell, I'll even say this is one of my favorite episodes now.
We saw Tweek again, but again no speaking role for him.
on one part, that was perhaps the BEST SHOW EVER!! I couldn't believe how many characters were around and finally seen....all the kids and I mean ALL the kids were there!! I saw some cameos (Briden, the goth kids, the kid from guitar queer-o, soo many..and of course...TIMMY!! ) Best was Professor Chaos and his grandma showing up in a costume, was hilarious.
I admit that I loved the "jackin in San Deigo" part Part of me wishes it was somewhere like Miami or San Jose But Still, awesomly done. The Captian Kangeroo hair on that dude, lol. nice.
JESUS showed up! All the bathroom sh*t, kinda predictible but hilarous at the same time. Grandma pickin on Butters only for him to stand up to her in the end, I thought that was well done.
The movie made me dissy. I know it was great at the same time, but it was just awkwardly done.
The whole bullying thing...they have a point...It DOES have to be stopped, but in a way...they were more making fun of the issue rather than helping it, which dissapoints me
I was in Western Massachusetts when Pheobe Prince committed suicide thanks to bullying. 6 classmates were formally charged with their connection in her suicide and had to do probation because of it. Bullying is a huge academic. I admit that I was at the hands of bulling in middle and high school. It wasn't fun. It really hurt. I never wanted to do bodily harm, but it just made my depression a lot worse....like dealing with Aspergers is bad enough.
The whole "What are you gonna do? Cry??" thing really pissed me off. Because it was like a bully intent. I mean, there is much worse people can do when at the hands of bullies than cry. This sh*t MUST BE STOPPED PEOPLE!!
The whole Dr. Oz thing...while I was excited to see Butters kick his ass, I was also a bit taken back by the violence of this episode along with him and his grandma. Do people realize that Bullying leads to violence?? You wonder why school shootings are now BACK on the rise?? It's not JUST the economy stupid
Finally, while I saw all the kids and Mr. Adler/Mackey. I didn't see principal Victoria (but I know she's around) but my concern is GARRISSON!!! WHERE THE f*ck IS HE?!? Could this episode finally be the intent where M&T begin to move on without him, I really hope not, because I miss Mr. Garrisson, I want him back!!
I'm giving this episode a 7.5/10 just because of these issues. While it was by far the best episode this season (um, I think...) there were just a few things that got me into this rant, and episodes are meant to not get me rolling like this...or is this a good thing? Ok now I'm just ranting
After partially rewatching the show, I must say that I am amazed how well M&T blended the bullying issue with the rise and fall of Jason Russell/Kony 2012 in the plot. While the episode's ultimate purpose was to screw Stan over (poor Stan... ), Butters' character growth and his ultimate statements to his grandma is IMO the better ending. Butters summed up really well that bullies feel the same emptiness and insecurity as their victims, which is why they resort to bullying in an attempt to make themselves feel good. The repeated restroom scenes further reinforces that point.
Still keeping this episode at a 7/10 though (a "good" rating in my scale). Cut out the last 2 minutes or so and it would rise to 8/10.
Favorite Characters: KYLE -- STAN -- WENDY -- BUTTERS
Favorite Character to hate: C A R T M A N !!!
Favorite Episode: THE LIST
I hope the end of this episode "resets" to normal. I'd hate it if Butters wasn't his naive self, and Stan was hated forever. But it always does, so that's good in this case.
I hate to say it, but this episode was heavily influenced on my liking of Stan. If I wasn't so much like I wished I wanted Stan to publish the movie and be very famous, which ever since I've watched the show I've wanted Stan to be a successful star, I would rate it a 9/10. For some reason, the Stan begin sued brought it down to a 7/10 for me. A little exaggerated, but I guess that showed how much of a fangirl I could be. (Though all the fanfic's I've written are Kyle-centric, and rarely involve Stan ever.)
Please read my previous post, I promise it's not nearly as bad as my last one, and it's a 'normal' post.
I thought the scenes where Grandma bullied Butters were kinda....off. Kinda rubbed me the wrong way,and the thing in the bathroom was kinda gross-ish.
The ending was freaking WEIRD,but funny nonetheless.
The overall message was great,I'll give it an 8 out of 10.
xD compliment sandwich!
But yeah, it was pretty funny at the start. The music video was great, especially Cartman in drag. The ending, however... ehhhhhh... once again, I'm just weirded out. That seems to be a common occurrence with South Park lately.
