Compared to the other great's of this half-season, like Insecurity, Raising the Bar, and A Nightmare on Facetime, it wasn't great. However, it was a decent episode. I liked the focus on Stan, and the Dr. Seuss stuff.

I need an answer please!! I couldn't help but notice the "French Scientist" character has a huge resemblance to Tim Conway's comedy character "Dorf." Is this intentional????

Most of the time I understand South Park episodes but with this one I am not sure. Can someone explain to me what the episode was about? Like a full explanation. I went to one website and they only thought the episode was just ok. I see others thinking it's the best of the season. This is one of those rare episodes that I can't seem to figure out.

The main theme is about people falling prey to charlatans like Mr. Pitief, who sell bracelets - er, scauses - supporting every little cause that comes to mind and then skip town before people realize they've been had.

There are side themes, like Jesus performing miracles that can't be explained scientifically and about witch hunts.

I noticed that too, rainwater90. It was a direct paradoy of Tim Conway's character. However, it wasn't Conway's "Dorf." It was "Mr. Tudbal" :)

Even at time index 9:15, Carroll Burnett herself imitates Mr. Tudbal :lol:

Enjoy!

That's one reference I wouldn't have gotten even though the scientist referenced it himself. I didn't see The Carol Burnett Show much.

6/10(The first time I watch this episode)
7.7/10(The second time I see it)
Nice one.Sometimes,I need watch the same episode again to get the point,just like this one.
What they've said in this episode is so true,people tend to put those things all their hands to show their faith,but it's not necessary.Doing what you are thinking about is OK.

:o Jeez, I saw all the reruns in the 80's, and still remember most of them. (and i keep meaning to get the dvd collections that are around now, but never do. :roll: ) I must admit though, I remembered that particular voice from a clip used in the infomercial for one of the dvd collections that have been out recently.

I liked this episode. The Dr.Seuss art style in the middle of the episode was great. It really reminded me of the Dr.Seuss book I read as a child

Its also nice that Butters is acting more confident recently. He's really starting to take a stan!

Also.....I liked the part where butters pokes Stan and says "But now I think you're a cute little butthole". It seems that this season had quite a bit of instances of "fangirl fuel" with the Cartman and Kyle "romance" in Cartman finds love, Butter and Kenny holding hands in going native, and then the thing in this episode. I'm 95% sure that probably most of it is unintentional and was just done in plain fun though.

It's just I can't get rid of this nagging suspicion that the people who come up with the ideas in south park started visiting south park's ff.net section recently and starting to put their influences from it on the show :D

Yay I finally know what the hell they meant by "Free Pussy Riot". I just thought it was something goofy at the end. I'm gonna go watch this episode again.

See this article about Pussy Riot.

Russia is freeing Pussy Riot members. Looks like the message worked. I think this episode got banned in Russia because of it.
What seems to be the officer problem?
