Odd, it felt pretty much the opposite of scattered to me :I I'll agree that raising the bar was so "meh" i forgot it all already, but Sarcastaball was hilarious to me. It's been a pretty good season sofar.
Maybe I just need to watch it again and pay more attention. I might like it more then. I did think the episode was okay, though, even though I wouldn't call it amazing at the moment. I actually find Raising the Bar my favorite so far.
I'm not sure if It's that I'm easily impressed or something, but I love every episode off season 16. and 15, and 14, 13, so on and so forth. I enjoy every single episode and laugh at all of them. IDK why some episodes get better "ratings" as others because in my eyes, they are all South Park .
However, this and Reverse Cowgirl are probably the 2 episodes that made me laugh the most of season 16.
Season 9: Erection Day- Jimmy got his *thing* Butters was a secondary character
Season 16: Butterballs - Stan was jackin' it in San Diego, so he must've gotten his *thing* Butters was the main character of that episode
Season 16: Sarcastiball - Butters got this *thing* (main character of episode)
Also Gerald's "troubles" were also mentioned in Season 3's "spontaneous combustion" yeah. 13 YEARS ago.
Yeah but this episode was amazing. 9/10, funny the whole way through.
Sacastiball - 8/10
Raising the Bar - 6/10 (half of it was 9/10 but the James Cameron parts really lowered it)
INSecurity - 7//10
I'll say this episode was much more consistent than Raising the Bar, which the whole James Cameron part in it seemed completely out of place and meaningless.
Other than that, the jokes were kind of average.
It had me hanging on every line and scene and seemed to be over in 10 minutes instead of 20, very nice job M+T!!
Brinks security vid:
Last decent show was "1%" or maybe "Thanksgiving" from last season.
Wonder if they really are burning out and everything is "Getting Old". (worst show ever)
Hope they have not jumped the shark.
favorite characters: Eric Cartman & Kenny McCormick
favorite episode: Scotter Tenderman Must Die/ Cartoon Wars part I/II

That creepy Pet Semetary guy was in another SP episode, but I can't remember which one. Anyone know?
It was Marjorine which is another one of my favorites.
And Butters' Very Own Episode and Asspen.
They have him to a T. It makes you appreciate the episode all the more.
The Butters episode partly parodied the 'Pet Sematary movie.
I get what a lot of people are saying about the recent crop of 'South Park' episodes. I share similar views. If you look at the early seasons, They're a different style from the middle seasons. Maybe Trey and Matt are just trying out a new style? They did say in an interview before that they wanted to get to the stage where their episodes got so weird that people just didn't find them funny anymore. Don't think that will ever happen though. I personally thought the Raise the Bar episode was hilarious.
I was not expecting much out of this episode to begin with since I'm getting tired of M&T overusing Cartman and Randy Marsh as of late while neglecting Stan and Wendy.
That said, the episode turned out surprisingly good. The past two episodes had ADD-like storylines, but this one settled on a single premise and developed it nicely all the way through. The security hotline gag never got stale since the absurdity level was upped a notch with every use (though Ike's recycled drawing gag got old fast).
The best part of this episode IMO is all the examples of how Cartman's personality is shaped by his inner insecurities much more than anything else. Seeing him freaking out about Kyle stealing his stuff, burglars gaming the security system, and the Jewish populating growing was outright enjoyable.
I'll give this episode a 7.5/10. Would've easily been a point or more higher if it was more kids-centric. Enough with Cartman and Randy already M&T, give us more quality Stan and Wendy material!
Favorite Characters: KYLE -- STAN -- WENDY -- BUTTERS
Favorite Character to hate: C A R T M A N !!!
Favorite Episode: THE LIST
I loved the In-security metaphor in this episode, and how Cartman's kept going off every few minutes XD.
