It was good. An improvement, but not a best episode ever status.

But i incredibly enjoyed Al Gore and when you first see fat cartman.

Yup, Manbearpig = Global Warming. Blah, blah, blah. I'm familiar with your position already, M&T.

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!

Wow. That sucked a lot.
I laughed pretty hard when they said the treasure's fake, but apart from that it sucked, and that was only funny for 10 seconds. Better than last week of course, but that means nothing. Worst two consecutive episodes ever.

That was awesome in my opinion! Great to have an episode with the whole group. Al Gore was so funny. "Serial!" The part were Cartman was standing over Kyle was funny as hell also. Overall, great episode, really made up for last week's. I think it was cool that Kyle and Stan didn't abandon Cartman in the end and helped him to safety, espeacially when Kyle almost drown trying to save Cartman.

1. That episode was among the worst in the series. Not only was there practically no payoff, but it was ridiculously obvious what was going to happen.

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.

Uhhhhh. That SUCKED! What a losing streak of episodes. With all of this horrible stuff going on in the government today, South Park decides to dis Al Gore of all people and once again elude to the idea that wrecking the environment (manbearpig or what Al Gore is getting attention over) is ok. This is really a terrible season.

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. :D

I'm gonna agree with "artimon" on this....this episode paired with the last one is starting to give me some real fear about the future of "South Park." I don't really know if I laughed once at this episode.

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.
