Just for the record, A Milliion Little Fibers was hilarious and a nice change of format.

Don't worry, I missed that one, too, until I looked it up. I just ignored the political aspect of it and sat back and enjoyed the episode for what it was: one of the boys' adventures.
The reason for Al Gore, though, is because he is/was making a movie on global warming, and we all know Matt and Trey's stance on that. e_e Because, you know, dropping it and finding something better to pick on or, better yet, coming up with a completely original story would be too hard.
BrianSmith wrote:I have figured it out. Why did A Million Little Fibers and Manbearpig suck? Simple. No one ripping on or making fun of anyone. Think about it. Matt and Trey have always said that they will not draw lines and say that it is ok to make fun of this but not to make fun of that because when you do that, then you really are a racist or a bigot. If you say that it is ok to make fun of Jews but not Muslims, then you are anti-Semitic, but if you make no distinction, then you simply make fun of people, which unites people rather than dividing them. In Manbearpig, you had all four boys together, but no one calling anyone a fatass or a dumb Jew or anything. That's why it sucked. Without the element of ripping on people, whether it be children calling each other names or real social commentary, it's just a show about a boring, backwards mountain town. What fun about that?
Dude are you kidding? Million Little Fibers owned i was practically pissing myself with laughter at the things between Oprahs Minge and ass that sh*t was comedy genius

A Million Little Fibers was not one of the better episodes of this is season, in my opinion, but did I think it sucked? No, not really. It was kind of just a bizzare and pointless episode. Matt and Trey probably didn't have any ideas that week.
For the record, Manbearpig is one of my favorite episodes this season so far.
As for Manbearpig, I agree with what was said earlier. Consider that Al Gore's character was only trying to get attention for himself because he's a whiny loser. If you ignore him and focus on the boys and their perious escape, the episode is far more enjoyable. The global warming metaphor was only superficial; I saw a much more universal metaphor for anyone who makes sh*t up just to make themselves the center of attention. At the time the BBS was being hit by a certain troll, who isn't worth mentioning by name, and he was acting pretty much the same way: using the same inflammatory arguments over and over again, insisting that he is fighting for a just cause, and then whining and complaining when nobody takes him "serial".
