It was sad that this episode caused a response (to the bleeping) to be announced by M&T after the episode aired: "In the 14 years we've been doing South Park we have never done a show that we couldn't stand behind. We delivered our version of the show to Comedy Central and they made a determination to alter the episode. It wasn't some meta-joke on our part. Comedy Central added the bleeps. In fact, Kyle's customary final speech was about intimidation and fear. It didn't mention Muhammad at all but it got bleeped too. We'll be back next week with a whole new show about something completely different and we'll see what happens to it. "
So 1507 and 1406 are the saddest episodes for me.
I can't really watch it. I get the big metaphorical joke that is central to the episode, but that doesn't make it any easier. They shat all over the legacy of one of their greatest characters; one that was instrumental to the show's initial success, in my opinion. It crushed me personally. Then Issac up and dies not long after so there's no chance at reconciliation. It's like you get in an argument with a dear friend, tell him you fucking hate him and never want to see him again, then he dies in a car crash. I guess it's the story around the episode that makes it so sad for me. Haven't been able to watch it in 8 years.
