Yeah, no doubt about that. AMLF was a way better EP. Made me laugh.
Well, that's just my opinion.
Yeah, I actually kind of liked AMLF, perhaps more than this one. I mean, I thought it was completely stupid and I'm not really a big fan of Towelie, but Gary and Mingey cracked me up. This episode just seemed kind of boring, not enough depth as usual (probably because of all the sub-plots) and then it just fizzled out at the end. I was just left wanting more but knew it would never come. Plus, I would've loved to have seen Saddam again.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say, make people laugh?
Oh no. They showed Steve Irwin. How HORRIBLE. They weren't even truly mocking him (the closest is by having the stingray hanging out of his chest, which is hilarious), they never said anything bad about him at all. They just treated him like a pretty normal guy there. They acknowledged that it was too soon, but pretty much said, "f*ck it, we're doing it anyway." And that's what I like about this. There should never be such a thing as "too soon" in the comedy world. The sooner it is, the funnier it is, usually.
Besides, two months is still quite a bit of time. Trust me I was shocked and kinda saddened when I heard about his death, despite not knowing him or being Australian or anything, but I got over it. And so should others. It's time to move on and come on, it was a big event, of course it's going to be parodied.
And on the grieving family, um, Bindi and her brother shouldn't even be watching South Park, so who's to say that they even know about this? That shouldn't hurt them in any way at all. And I'm sure that Terri has more important things to do than sit around frantically trying to download new South Park episodes. If you're not part of their family, I don't see why you're trying to feel offended for them, feel offended for yourself.
And if you're never going to watch SP again because of one little 20-second clip, good for you. Nobody's gonna miss ya.
On AMLF, honestly I'm getting tired of the constant extreme negative reaction to it. The episode was not as bad as you people keep on making it out to be. Was it of lower quality? Sure. Was it stark-raving absolutely disgustingly awful and horrible so mcuh so that it made your ears blow off just from the grating sound and your eyes implode back into your brain ebcause you just couldn't bear to watch through it anymore, it was THAT disgustingly, nauseatingly horrible? No. For chrissake.
That said, the episode did nothing to poke fun at him. They didn't use any "ray" jokes that have been posted on the Net and they didn't refer to his death (excluding the ray) at all.
EVERYONE IS OVERREACTING. I have a feeling that the guys respected Mr. Irwin and this is proof.
SBS should air the episode, the sooner the better to prove to the Australian public that the episode isn't trying to cash in on the Steve Irwin's death bandwagon like so many others are.
Australians who believe the crap from news.com.au are even stupider than I think. We're not outraged. We know South Park is South Park and those who like the show will watch it; those who don't like the show will not; those who don't like the show and protest are idiots.
Australians on the board, think logically. They didn't make fun of his death at all - it was a normal scene.
Edit: Props to the guys for the Cannibal reference =]
Ah! I can't do it, I'm too freaked out!
That whole thing with Dahmer, Bundy and that other dude was like the funniest thing I've ever seen. I laughed my ass off at the whole Steve Irwin part, people are saying it was too much but no they didn't make any jokes about him, it's just situational humor.
"Super Sweet 'IhaveanIQof 16' " show. Was the point hammered enough that they behave worse than satan? Maybe. I was just distracted by the whole serial killer cake walk. The parents who go to such lengths to appease these unholy b*tches are stooges I get. Serial killers? Well I guess that goes with the whole deserve-to-be-in-hell thing. (I tend to over-analyze, but I enjoy it - so back off)
Also, did anybody else think tha satan's, um, ... assistant (?) looked like Riff Raff from Rocky Horror?

You phukking insensitive prix - shame on matt and trey. I've been a fan for years of SP and their other movies. They've hung crap on so many people who have deserved it but their latest lashing on Steve Irwin (the crocodile hunter, just in case you've been living on Rure Pente) is inexcusable.
Us Aussies take umbridge to you wankers portraying Steve in this way so soon after his tragic death.
I'm never EVER going to watch SP or any other production by you idiots again as a protest and I'm spreading the word down under.
What were you guys trying to do?
YOU try showing Heaven as a party town!
Everyone has the right to freedom of expression. This right includes freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority
and regardless of frontiers
Everyone in america has free speech, i know that and i live in the UK, I am not condoning what they are doing but i would fight for the death for their right to do it
Without free speech, think of all the stuff you couldnt say
South Park has yet to make fun of acne from what I can remember, and I have a very bad case of it and it is very sensative to me. If they did a episode making fun of people with acne I would laugh along with the rest of the fans!!!!!!
Oh and good Luck with that protest/boycott dude, sounds like it will be really successful!
SAC Leader: You mean like a chocolate candy?
Darth Chef: No, I mean my balls!!
Another beef I have with this episode is the main characters weren't in costumes. I know they didn't have much a role in this one, but after wearing them for Seasons 1 2 and 3, I was hoping they'd put something on.
At least Butters got too once again(Asspen) show off his nice dance moves.
"Whats your name?"
"What's in a name?"
Kyle and Rebecca.
Still, I'd have to say that this episode is my least favorite from the second half of season 10 thus far. It's not that I hated it...I just didn't feel that it met the quality of the previous three episodes.
