The first episode I liked. The second I didn't. It's a bad episode... I don't think it's going to completely tank. Matt and Trey are not arrogent enough to believe every episode they make is golden; if they are, they don't deserve to be making television.

Take the bad and learn from it. The majority of South Park's stuff is good except for a few which have been beyond bad.

Look, I'm fine with scatological humor. I'm fine with sh*t. Lord knows I scrape enough of it out of my cat's pan on a daily basis. I just didn't think the humor or writing was that sharp, that's all.

I probably overstated it to say they jumped the shark. Perhaps I should have said they jumped the poodle instead.

The best response would have been "Tonight's episode sucked."

Okay that's maybe true, but I do think it's very funny. Mainly because we also finally got to see a story inside South Park [The show, not the town], and not again a parody on the news. Nice to see some fresh air IMO.


Now, even though I disagree, I'm not gonna turn into HOKREPPA.:P

1108, in my opinion, was pretty awesome. It got better for me when I watched it a second time, knowing it wasn't going to be a ripoff of an older SP episode. More Crap, however, was, well......blah....the one part with Bono was loltastic, as well as Randy random reactions to things, but the rest was just....weird....

Seems that whenever a celebrity is made fun of, a lot of fans start saying how much they suck. It happened with Phil Collins and now it's happening to Bono. I wonder how fewer Barbra Streisand fans there were after the Mechastriesand episode.

We need to get back to the four boys and their wild adventures rather than having just one or two of them in an episode, and usually Kenny isn't in those episodes.

Maybe there IS something to women not understanding the crap thing because honestly, I usually love when SP makes fun of celebrities. I just didn't like the doo doo element of the show.

Dude relaxe, last weeks episode wasn't that bad and South Park may eventually have a below average episode every now and then but it's nothing to worry about.
Yosh! Life is good cause I want it that way.

100% right about that though.

I've noticed that over the last 3 or 4 years, South Park seems to 'jump the shark' about 2 or 3 times a season. By that I mean they've been alternating between seriously mediocre episodes and totally genius episodes since the end of season 8. And season 11 is no exception.

We're only three episodes into the second half of this season and already and South Park has jumped the shark and jumped right back.

The show's been really schizophrenic since the beginning of season 9. Season 10 contains the genius two-part Cartoon Wars and the abortion of A Million Little Fibers in the same run. That's what I'm talking about, right there.

Exactly, and that's why I never say the show jumped the shark. In order for that to happen, the show has to have like three episode of More Crap quality in a row.

Only reason Cartman was sympathetic was because if Kyle died, Kyle wouldn’t be able to suck his balls. That’s just the usual selfish Cartman. They have done this countless times when you think Cartman actually cares but it’s still just greedy evil Cartman…

I don’t think anything out of the ordinary happened in this episode besides a really good story.
