I'm actually now disapointed. I mean, the episode had the qualities of being a top 10 episode..EVER!! But then....it ended on a whimp.
Cartman basically hiding the election....Star Wars/Mickey Mouse, Gen. Tso Chicken, Obama....I wish it was Romney instead of the duck but....then we had Butters (I wish he wasn't sick...but at least we knew it was an alergic reaction). and of course...Morgan Freeman! It had some pretty funny parts too, and I like funny
The episode for the first 20 minutes was one to never forget. But to just let the Mouse (who wasn't even there mind you) win like that, to me was pretty weak. Man. Usually things end great....but not in this show.
9.5/10 (first 20 minutes) But....because of the last 90 seconds..it drops to an 8/10.
PS: Butters isn't dead. They wouldn't kill a character as popular as his without a gooood reason. They would need it too, or I'd boycott the show!
It... was okay. Maybe I'm just biased because I was really f*ckin' sick and tired of all the election crap that had been going on, and was ready to not hear another thing about it the next day. It seems like people were more charged up about it this election year than the previous, but it seems like that every election year. Well, whatever.
Also, I can't explain why, but South Park Mickey totally sets my teeth on edge. I have no clue why, but he just annoys the hell out of me. Maybe it comes from people doing 'fake Mickey' at me when I was a kid. Mostly the ones who may or may not have carried them inside me for a little while.
As far as the rest of the ep goes, I did get a few chuckles out of it. Cartman at the polling places looking for his Meehm, the General Tso bit didn't get stale like I thought it would, and the 'in' joke of it being a joke was pretty good. 'Warm nuts' got slightly stale, but I could see that joke coming from Pacoima before it even got here.
Is it bad that the first place I thought of when Cartman said he'd hidden the ballots where "no one would ever look" was his butt?
I know there was more stuff that I liked in it, but can't think about it now. Maybe I can watch it again in the next few days and come back with more.

Not at all. I thought it would be there too, considering that he hid all of Disneyland back there when he was visiting Romper Stomper in Juvi.

That is awesome. Thank you for the answer. It's really nice to know they have so much faith in our democratic candidate. I think it would have been really funny for Mitt to win just for the sake of the episode (I still say phew for dodging that bullet, We dont need mormon's in the white house!) It woulda been really cool to get a Vlog from Matt or Trey explaining the Gaffe.
I met Matt and Trey once, very briefly. They held an opening night party for the book of Mormon at a bar I was bouncing at. At the time I was giddy like a kid as these are 2 of my favorite animators of all time. I had this weird notion i'd get to socialize with them and get to know them a bit. I only got to thank them for there hard work and years of entertainment (something they must be sick of hearing xD). I feel as though I learned more about Trey with your answer then I did meeting him in person. Kudos to the well run forum. More forums need fast answering moderators like you.
I ship: Stan/Cartman <3
Sharon: What is it honey? (gasp!) My baby's killed again!
Haa, I love that line.
Totally awesome!A very good end in season 16.The Disney & Lucas' plot is very hilarious.
Hope Season 17 would be better.
If Cartman really wants a role in Star Wars, he's a total slam dunk for the son of Jabba the Hutt. Them two have a great resemblance to each other. Can't believe M&T didn't have Mickey and the Chinese throw that zinger.
Kudos to M&T for taking a gamble on an Obama win! Not that big of a gamble in hindsight since the state polling average was right all along, but at least they banked on the polls more than the right-wing "the polls are skewed" kool-aid. Given this week's results the stolen ballots would've probably went to Obama anyways...
That said, the episode is meh. There were funny parts at times, but the plot's way too complicated (as M&T acknowledged via Morgan Freeman) and outlandish for my liking.
Man, when will M&T finally stop reducing Kyle to a go-to reactionary character for Cartman's mischief? Kyle's a strong character and can make things happen on his own accord, just look at his "Jesus" role in Margaritaville! Sigh, next season I guess...
Favorite Characters: KYLE -- STAN -- WENDY -- BUTTERS
Favorite Character to hate: C A R T M A N !!!

7.5/10 I gotta say Season 16 was somewhat good I mean my favorite episodes from this Season were: Butterballs, Faith Hilling, Cartman Finds Love, and A Nightmare on Face Time. The Rest episodes were ok but some were not that great. I hope Season 17 will be better because I want to see like more South Park Elementary Episodes and Wendy and Stan Episodes (together)
