Yeah.... =( This is the first episode I can't sleep after watching. They had a special on TV a while ago about how child prostitutes were put in cages and on leashes.
Earlier today I was shuffling through Fortean Times and found a very old article on the priests and how a nun found out about it. (You don't want know... but I don't think a lot of people understand the brutality of it until you hear about the physical damage.)
Um... so now you can suffer along with me! Yay!
... or try to get beyond your knee-jerk reaction and maybe try to laugh at it? It's the hypocrite test!
Hypocrite test? Nay... I don't work for them, I don't write their stories. I'm not on their pay roll. I'm their audience. And really, I'm one of the few people who isn't screaming "ZOMG HAYES THE TRAITOR!".
I support freedom of speech, and that goes both ways. =P I don't feel religion is "sacred" nope. I don't feel that it's wrong to show things the way they really are. (If that means priests molestering boys... well then so be it.) BUT that doesn't mean I can be reminded of that so blatently and not go "UHG!" and be upset by it.
Knee-jerk yes. Thank GOD! Nature/god/gods gave us "knee jerk reactions" for a reason. =P To try to change that so that I could think of child prostitution without that reaction would be... I dunno some of sort of wrong.
Kyle Loves Me// Albino.black.sheep is my accountabilabuddy! *tackle hugs*
I've never been a fan of Satan/Saddam scenes, so I was very pleased when he didn't show up. The Satan parts were pretty good and the Biggie parts were hilarious. Best moment of the episode for me was when Biggie showed up at Randy's mirror.
The unfunny part was the "three murderers". Knife-scenes were over the top and I thought the whole thing got repetitive after a while. Definitely took up too much time with this.
biggie small was a nice little addition, I didn't mind it. Yay for Butters! and yeah... Kenny went AWOL?!
The Three Murderers thing made no sense, so I'll just leave it at that...
"Now how about our gay couple, Stan and Kyle?"
As for all of the plotlines, yeah, I definitely think now that they just had too much content for too little time. If they had been able to fit the ex-lvoer plot in, that would have been five sub-plots all stemming from the big main one, and that's really a lot.
I felt that the most pointless one was the Catholic Priests plot. That just... didn't go anywhere, and was only really funny in the concept. Biggie Smalls was pretty funny, and actually had some bit in the episode. I still think that The Three Murderers was the greatest bit, though. I laughed the hardest during their final scene, that was pretty nasty but god it was funny.
Man, even if they could've just added maybe only ten more minutes on the episode, cut the commercials, it probably would've turned out better. We may have gotten that fifth subplot and the others could have been elaborated on more. Still, I think that they did do pretty well with what they had. This is a really good episode for staring off into the background, what with all of the costumes and all.
I just wish it had more of the boys in it. D: And Kenny, too.
Honestly, I would love to see Butters (or maybe one of the other kids) step in as the fourth kid.
The problem with Kenny is that he can´t do that much for the storyline. There are so many other well elaborated characters in SP that could fill in....
But that´s my personal opinion- I´ve never been able to "connect" to the character Kenny, I never really cared when he died and I guess I wouldn´t care if he was replaced by another kid...
I watched the episode again and I still think it´s awesome- can´t understand the critics here .
But I think that they actually would have needed 40 minutes and not only 20 to tell all the plots properly.
I really liked every single storyline (Priests, satan, Biggie)... I could have watched that episode much longer .
I thought that was a good episode. Sure, it may have been a bit early, but it was still funny. This episode did suffer from too much content in too little time, but almost every episode has that problem these days.
but did anyone else notice the guy in the Chef outfit? I thought that was pretty funny.
Also, for those of you who are actuallly offended by the Steve Irwin thing, get used to it, I heard that is going to be THE Halloween costume this year. (Matt & Trey must have heard that as well)
Biggie Smalls???? I couldn't stop laughing when Butters and biggie were chatting it up and Biggie was like "We don't have no money in hell nigga" and Butters replied "Damn, n*gger, chill" or something like that - just hearing butters say that was funny
seriously funny sh*t - an Acura Cake <-- I'm still dying about that - it was probably the funniest episode this season
Do they have new writers or something (I know Matt and Trey write all the episodes) but something is different about this season - it has more depth, the jokes are funnier and the one-liners stick, right away!
another awesome show - "they don't have money in hell nigga!"
I kept replaying that part like it was going out of style
There were too many side-plots and none of them made any sense, and the main plot didn't make any sense either. Ripping on rich spoiled teens on MTV wasn't quite enough for an idea for an episode.
The three murderers thing was uncomfortable to watch at times. The jokes were just so stupid.
I kinda liked the leash-thing and f*cking the dead guy- parts in a weird way... They weren't funny at all, but at least there was some kind of an edge there.
UnkieHerb wrote:That was worse than AMLF. Seriously.
I agree with you about 75%. I don't think it was worse than AMLF, and I didn't mind the Biggie Smalls plotline as much as some of the other content but I still think it was pretty bad.
What confuses me about this episode is how there were so many subplots, yet so many overused jokes. First was the ominous way Satan described perfectly innocent aspects of his party-- funny the first time, but not four times in a row. Second was the Three Murderers scenes-- basically the same skit repeated three times... even the Three Stooges themselves were more original. Third and finally was needlessly summoning Biggie Smalls-- again, funny at first but not when done by Kyle and the other kids, by Randy Marsh or when he was nearly summoned in the men's room at the party.
This episode makes me think that maybe one week is no longer enough time for the writers to come up with a good episode. If the crew had just taken the script, cut away the unfunny crap (Catholic subplot, along with everything I just mentioned) and rewrote the episode, focusing on the couple of subplots with the most potential (Satan and the main cast), it could have been great. What they gave us last night, however, was unfunny and barely cohesive.
I'm still waiting to see if this show recovers from this plague of mediocrity....

But c'mon, kids, Steve Irwin jokes were all over the Internets the day the news broke. Even Norm MacDonald pulled off a wicked run on the Daily Show a few weeks back.
Yeah Nojo I'm with you on that! What's with this to soon crap? Oh if they waited 10 years it wouldn't be in Bad taste. Way to Go Matt and Trey for just going with it! I mean do you people really want them to start pulling Punches?Beside you know that some Evil a$$hole Is going to dress up like Steve Irwin at Halloween Party you go too!

...the week he died, I was going to a fancy dress party at my friends, and I had been planning as going as a jungle explorer because I have the hat and the khakis and I like pretending I am a jungle explorer because I have the hat and it's fun, anyway... and everyone that day asked if I was Steve Irwin, even my mother was making jokes about how I should just be the Crocodile Hunter and drop the whole "No! Really! I'm just a jungle explorer! It's just a coincidence! I've been planning this costume for weeks! Well actually I just threw it together today, but I've had the idea for weeks! Look at the hat!"
