"When I saw the title of the episode, I thought maybe this would be about the muslims rioting over cartoons overseas. I've been expecting Trey and Matt to do something about that. I'm just wondering if somehow they can make Family Guy offend people and start riots. I hate to think it's just going to be them dissing Family Guy. I guess we'll all have to wait and see Wednesday night."
Not bad for my first post on this site. I guessed the plot outline, but still I loved the way Matt and Trey lampooned America's tepid response to the cartoon riots overseas, took some more shots at that fruity club that has been giving them crap, plus they whacked the hell out of Comedy Central at the end of the episode! I bow to the masters.

i hope so... the million year war has to continue
Please, please tell me nobody thought Cartman was serious when he was talking in that episode, because that's the impression I got from a few of the posts here. Come on. In any long-drawn out speech, whatever... I just thought that was even funnier because it was obvious that he was spewing bull. Come on, hearing him say, "It's wrong! It's wrong. It's wrooonnngggg," was enough.
Man, Kyle is getting a LOT of attention this season, isn't he? Next thing you know instead of people bitching about all the numerous Cartman episodes (of which I have no idea what they're talking about) or the Stan ones (Trapped in the Closet? Bloody Mary? Oh noes, a whole two?), people will be bitching about too much Kyle. He does have pretty graphic dreams though, doesn't he? I mean stabbing Jesus, and now him and his brother exploding. Man. I remember, the first time I saw that scene, I was in shock and thought that they might actually be killing Ike, but the second Kyle got effected I knew that it was a dream.
Oh, and seeing a live action terrorist guy dissing Family Guy like that was absolutely brilliant. Those parts were hysterical.
The last time I laughed so consistenly during an episode was Free Willzyx, which was the last time I was really, really excited when an episode summary was posted.
And Kenny DID get a line. One line. I recall somebody saying he didn't get any, nope, it was sometime after they got out of school where Cartman made the one good point for pussing out ("Is it worth it to have people die, just so you can have your joke?").
I wanna go watch the episode again. Wish the .avi torrent would download faster. D:
The extreme dramatizing of Kyle and Cartman's race was also equally hilarious.
"I remember, the first time I saw that scene, I was in shock and thought that they might actually be killing Ike, but the second Kyle got effected I knew that it was a dream. "
Personally, I thought it was a great episode, the beginning with Stan and his mom was precious, and the rest just kinda went perfectly, I loved and can't wait till next week.
I started it off with an 8/10 due to the slow beginning, but the funny parts that the episode had (while there were gaps between them) were hysterical. The Family Guy spoof was accurate, the bike chase scene was entertaining, and... yeah, I'm going to boost the episode's rating to a 9/10. 1001 was the funniest episode of the season thusfar, but I'd have to say that this one is my favorite of the season overall, at least for now.
EDIT: I forgot some other parts I liked. I liked Mrs. Garrison's Muslim sensitivity class. I also liked some of the ironies in how the characters would denounce Family Guy for being an insensitive cartoon that would portray a religious figure when South Park has done that on several occasions (including their use of Mohammed in Season 5). I also enjoyed Cartman's speech (which was basically Matt and Trey speaking through him) about how he tries to relate jokes to a story while Family Guy uses random, interchangeable scenes. Which brings me to this next point:
South Park is a better show than Family Guy for the very reason that it has better plots. Family Guy is more consistently funny due to the WTF factor (which sometimes fails and ends up being more stupid than funny), but the plots aren't very well-written. South Park was right about Family Guy just having random, interchangeable scenes scattered about, while South Park relates its humor to the plots. South Park may sometimes focus too much on the plot which leaves parts almost devoid of jokes, but when South Park scores a hit, it is above and beyond any Family Guy episode.
A lot of criticism as usual though. I have no problem with that...it's all a matter of opinion, but I will say one thing. I think maybe a few people are overlooking some of the jokes and the classic SP humour that was in this episode, and they're just being put off by the message/purpose of the episode.
I work over here at Fox Animation on American Dad and we're all actually pretty excited to see it. We've known about it for quite some time (Originally this episode was supposed to air before "Smug Alert"). We've also heard that it may be a two part episode.
I think the second part will push through. It would be repetitive if they pulled another Terrance and Phillip; besides, Matt and Trey seemed like they didn't want to do something like that ever again.
In my opinion, the only way for the second part to not push through would be if Comedy Central indeed "pusses out". In any case, I'm really hyped up for it, can't wait for when the press release comes out, so we'll know for sure. Damn Trey and Matt for making us all so paranoid.
A couple of things I noticed in the "next episode preview":
-Cartman says "This... explains everything..." I cannot for the life of me figure out what's going on from that statement alone. Something weird: when Cartman walks up to the screen, he gets bathed in an eerie greenish-blue light. Hmm... One thing for sure: obviously, we do know Cartman gets there first.
-Sand is mentioned again, and the entire country starts sticking their heads in it. The news reporter asks where they'll get the sand. I'm thinking they're gonna get it from the Muslims, and without sand, the Muslims become friendly in the end. Or something.
-Cartman/Kyle fist-fight. Apparently people have already rioted and stuff, since buildings are burning in the background. I'm guessing that's when Cartman and Kyle meet again; Kyle is pissed off and immediately starts beating Cartman up. Cartman, on the other hand, is trying to explain the whole family-guy-writer thing since he's not fighting back.
-"Will the cartoon be allowed to appear uncensored?" Probably. "Will Family Guy be destroyed?" Knowing South Park, it most likely will be. "Will television executives fight for free speech?" At first they'll be cowards, then fight back at the last second.
"Or will Comedy Central puss out?"
Jeez, I seriously hope not, otherwise everything I've written will have been for nothing.

i liked how they parodized the mohammed cartoon crisis, and that terrorists statement about family guy. that was hilarious. i also liked how cartman got all serious, but it turned out that all he wanted was to get family guy off the air. the race between cartman and kyle was also funny. overall really good episode. i think there will be a second part.
If u have any kind of sense of humor and are able to grasp the actuall messages that are being said ...then u will be laughig your ass off....
