This may be the first time im actually upset with the greatest show of all time..... if they do a 5th one, ill mutiny.
(1) No straight story line and no consistency. Obviously, each of those episodes was created separately, without one big story in mind, which you would expect for a spin-off.
(2) Primitive plot (though the original idea about super-heroes was great), and seriously empty episodes.
(3) Absolutely not funny (except one BP joke they kept repeating throughout those 3 episodes).
(4) Most characters not being themselves.
(5) Not worth re-watching, unlike 99% of all other South Park episodes.
(6) As you pointed out, the whole 3-4 episode Coon story would fit into 2 episodes MAX.
I do hope that this ridiculous story was due to M&T simply being very busy, and that all further episodes WILL start with the 4 boys standing at the bus stop or featuring a new day at the classroom.
These four The Coon/Mysterion episodes were fantastic. Looking foward to more of the same
It was old school cartoon mixed with modern day comic books and modern day super heros, and surprises at every turn. Why more could you want? A real thriller. Keep up the fantastic work, M&T
Very close call. They could have tanked the whole franchise on this, but they redeemed themselves.
The Clockwork Orange moment was amazing, a 10/10. And now I am noticing Bradley all over the place in old episodes where he used to just get filtered out as background noise.
- "Hey look, it's David Vilanch!"
- "I...can't...die" (and the following explanation)
- “With minty coolness he headed back home, and heroically watched Judge Judy, knowing his superhero friends were probably just fine without him.”
- "Another woman being raped... LET HER GO!"
And this scene was some South Park genius filtering through:
Alien Man: Hello my son. If you are seeing this message, then it must be dark times. And you must have many questions. Your true name is Gok-zarah. The power given to you comes from a planet far away. You are from that planet, Gok-zarah. It is for that reason you have a power that normal humans do not have. I know you must sometimes see this power as a curse, but you were sent here to stop evil from taking over the Earth and now, that time has apparently come. You must now harness and focus your power, Gok-zarah. The power of mint and berries yet with a tasty, satisfying crunch.
Mint-Berry Crunch: ...Uh yes. Yes, please go on.
Alien Man: Your home planet, Kokujong, is known throughout the universe for its berry mines. Berries that have the power to fuel nearly anything. Needless to say, when the mint hunters of Kogenrah got word of them, our fate was already sealed, Gok-zarah. But our two worlds collided and soon, mint and berry were one.
Mint-Berry Crunch: Wow!
Alien Man: Your mother and I sent you as far away as we could. Use your power, son. Save Earth. Shablagoo! [the orb rises up and away]
The rest was complete and utter trash.
They were no "Imaginationland",but i still thought they were great.
Being Australian i didn't get the bastketball guy "What should i do?" references,but the fact that the episodes were so "Kenny-centric",plus we could clearly hear him talk,made the mini-series for me.
The B.P guys bits in "1 & 2" were classic too.
"A haiku is just like a normal American poem except it doesn't rhyme and it's totally stupid."
"Oh no! Not Santa's balls!"
"Dammit, monster, I ain't givin you no treefiddy."
Oh... and I liked Pandemic too.
