Re: *1614: Obama Wins!* Pre-Air Discussion

Meh. Election episodes are often done pretty well on the show front, but considering that I am getting pollsters calling three times a day for two states' elections, I am just a touch burned out on the politics. And I am far from apolitical. So I think I'll go into this episode trying to be open min...

Re: What happened to south park?

What happened to South Park is that it's been on the show for 15 years and the creators got older and their style has changed with them. You can't honestly expect the same kind of material from guys in their mid 20s and it to remain unchanged by 40. Would the show have lasted this long if they had s...

Re: Hurricane Sandy

Well, even those who weren't affected may be trying to reach family and friends out east. I know a couple people who lost their homes in the boroughs and in Jersey and just getting a package of assorted non-flooded clothes etc from out here takes some priority. Everything else seems quite trivial. T...

Re: *1613: A Scause for Applause* Post-Air Discussion

You know, given they've done several election episodes, I would actually be inclined to see them pretty much make fun of how the world won't end based on who wins and not a whole hell of a lot actually changes based on who the president is. With all the end of the world apocalypse nonsense it would ...

Re: *1613: A Scause for Applause* Post-Air Discussion

While less haha funny than a number of episodes, this is a rather well written episode. Lots of word play and overlapping themes that actually worked quite well. I was never bored, but it wasn't the type of comedy you bust your gut laughing over. Nothing wrong with Trey changing it up a bit. I mean,...

Re: The After Season 15 Adult Animation Comedy Downfall:

Comedy is subjective. I've enjoyed a number of episodes this season. I know what I like (some of the more subtle references and jokes in particular) and don't (poop or spooge hijinks) and when I don't like something I can accept that's my preference. I'm in my early 30s and a woman and will have dif...

Re: *1612: A Nightmare on Face Time* Post-Air Discussion

I'm starting to feel like Randy is the main character and Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman are supporting characters. I love how South Park evolves constantly, but I'm extremely unhappy with the direction the show is moving. While Randy has been a major player for the last several seasons, you cannot...

Re: *1609: Raising the Bar* Post-Air Discussion

Finally rewatched and this is a mediocre episode - not terrible, but not great. I already said what I like about it, but I also would like to say only one of the things I disliked: the entire core lesson about shamelessness and obesity is absolute bullsh*t. Fat people are not this group of assholis...

Re: When did you start watch South Park?

1997. Every teenager of the late 90s snuck and watched the show while parents bristled at the idea of a cartoon having actual curse words and lots of toilet humor. I actually started enjoying it a few seasons later when M&T learned how to write engaging stories rather than the random Monty Pytho...

Re: *1610: Insecurity* Post-Air Discussion

Wow, I really, really liked this episode. They managed to keep both Randy and Cartman from getting out of hand. It's also been awhile since we've had an episode of showing just how damn retarded the adults of the town can be. This was definitely a bit of a throw back to Child Molestation Isn't Funny...

Re: I escape television to watch these Episodes and now...

You do realize that shows do require money to be produced? This revenue is headlined by advertisements and it has been a staple of television since the 1950s. With the widespread move toward the internet and streamed video you are seeing a reallocation of those ad dollars. I don't care for ads but l...

Re: *`1610: Insecurity* Pre-Air Discussion

I'm intrigued by the idea of an episode that may actually focus on the adults on the town (guaranteed to have many acts of stupidity) but also in the camp of thinking they have overloaded on Cartman enough that even a B plot around him is a little frustrating. He's been the main or secondary of pret...

Re: *1609: Raising the Bar* Post-Air Discussion

Oh boy and defensiveness continues. Listen, I do notice more than just what obese people purchase in the supermarkets. My background is the social sciences and I try to observe as objectively as possible. That said, I've noticed a difference just in what composition you will see based on the isle of...

Re: *1609: Raising the Bar* Post-Air Discussion

No, sorry but the vast majority of Westerners with obesity problems (ie their glands still work) is because they make crap for choices in terms of what they put in their bodies. Constant consumption of convenience foods that has been processed to the point that it resembles a chem lab rather than s...

Re: *1609: Raising the Bar* Post-Air Discussion

I hate the Obamas' war on obese people and their so-called stance against bullying. That scene with Michelle Obama beating up Cartman is perfect. I wish South Park had chosen to be clear, rather than vague, about what "raising the bar" refers to. Do they mean that fat people appearing in ...
