"No one takes me serial"
I Iearned something today, and it's that America is our home team, and if you don't want to root for the home team then get the hell out of the stadium.
I was waiting for treasure to come flying out of Lard Butt's ass and sure enough, cha-ching!
Decent episode. They always get a lot of mileage out of the Cartman/Kyle relationship. Here Kyle saves Cartman's life once again as Cartman wishes him ill-will. Good thing for Eric he hangs out with such nice guys.
You read it! You can't unread it!

2. Remember the criticism the SP leveled at Family Guy, that the jokes were interchangable and not all that funny? Could Al Gore have been more of an example of that? Not only was his character not funny, but I couldn't even think of what he represented.
All I know is that the last two episodes have been some of the worst in a long time. I know that there is still talent left as shown in Cartoon Wars, but if the episodes continue on this trend, I might stop watching so I can remember South Park for the edgy, poignant show that it was, rather than the unfunny drawn out half hour it's been.

last weeks was just disappointing..
this one made up for it
That's exactly what I said. This totally made up for 'A Million Little Fibers'. It was a bit like the old South Park episodes, with Kyle and Stan getting bigger parts, Kenny actually speaking, and Cartman getting what he had coming to him. This episode made me laugh out loud, a lot.
Why pick on Al Gore? he hasn't been doing anything lately; it's much more effective when they pull people off their high horses.
All the main plot-points were pretty predictable: the treasure being fake, treasure coming out of cartman's ass, Al Gore being a douche at every turn.
It reminded me of "volcano" a bit, except skuzzo-butt turned out to be real, which was a great twist!
Basically this episode just ran a few weird jokes into the ground. Serial? Manbearpig? Excelsior? What???
Sorry, but where's the funny?
Oh yeah, and it WAS political. All the Gore stuff was just M+T taking up their standard anti-alarmist stance.

Admittedly, the real Al Gore is much (unintentionally) funnier. But its clear Al represented himself and his stupid "global warming is going to kill us all unless we listen to him" movie.
Great job M&T.
