Also, naming them Part II and Part XII they leave room to fill in the story, like Star Wars. They'll never do it. Just a thought.
1. Who, in all of time, has ever known for sure an exact answer to anything?
2. Who fights over names? That seems like it was just thrown in there to make a point. (A bad one at that)
3. 500 years later and without any help the world just accepted that answers cannot be found? Try a billion.
Funny as usual, but don't do it again.
As a whole, both parts were all right. They did better earlier this run, I think, but this was hardly something to be ashamed of. Each of these episodes had a moment defining how Cartman is such a selfish little assh*le. 1) Not caring that everyone he knows is long dead so long as he gets his precious video game. 2) Coming within a pussycat hair of learning from his mistakes but snapping back in to his warped reality before any actual humanity sinks in.
You read it! You can't unread it!

Buck Rogers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2I470eM5oc
See the topic for my views on the episode. Not that you'll care.
Edit: Wow, they actually did it. Heh, gots to love those moderators.
Anyways, I thought the phone converstions were quite funny! "Yes Kyle, I will get on my hands and knees and suck your balls dry..." HA HA! The converstion at the end was pretty good too. Hey, does anyone really know what all the people in the past really wanted from Eric in the first place? And what religious affiliation did they end up being in the end? So many questions left unanswered....I've learned in my freshman college class to answer all audience questions...guess some writers didn't catch on...
The only good Slash is the one from Guns N' Roses.
The damn SP creators seem to think the middle is always correct.
I came to this conclusion based off of the fact they say:
"There is no one answer."
This leads me to assume that they mean:
"You have to make your own answer."
Which I think is a load of crap. If you thought about the subject to your GREATEST extent you would arrive with a logical answer. And if you guessed you would end up with an illogical answer. The middle path is pure confusion. Yet I do believe this is where we, as humans bound by genetic and inevitable limitations, will end up.
Wow, I just seriously forced my opinions onto you as fact.

Actually, they cut out pretty much everything they built up in the end of Go God Go part II(If that's what they are still calling it) Why the otters wanted to kill him, what they were planning to do and what Miss Garrison and what's his face did to make the world athiest. That's just bad writting...sorry, but it is. The episode would have been a lot more exciting if they answered to those first. That would have probaly made it a three parter though...but it would have been a lot better than what they squeezed in the second episode. It was a little boring.
I'm guessing they thought the middle part was too slow -- I would actually have preferred a three-parter with more of what was happening in the future -- but so it goes. I thought 2nd was decent -- but 1st half was better than 2nd. Ended okay though.

I learned just the opposite -- you're supposed to leave 'em guessing a little bit. The truth is probabl some where in the middle.
I'll watch it again tomorrow after watching the 1st part -- missed it
So, last week I did say that it really, really depended on what the second part was like. I LOVED the second part. It was AWESOME. It was absolutely hilarious and did a great job of wrapping things up. I was wondering when they were gonna get to the message at the end, but I'm happy that they saved it and focused on the storyline first.
All of the calls back to the past were insanely awesome. I loved those bits. I was hoping he'd call Kyle. And he did, and it was great. Dawkins' reaction was also great. The random futuring changing was great, and K-10 and whatever else it became, while I did see it as rather pointless at first... Yeah, that was pretty nice, too.
Um, basically, I just really liked this episode, and I do like the previous one more as a result. I was laughing right from the start, with some puases here and there, but yeah, it was still really great. They didn't use a total cop-out, no dreams or anything thank god, and... just... yeah. Yeah. That, that was pretty sweet.
And now, to go read other people's thoughts. Hello!
I really realy liked the opening, the choice to ignore the silly details of the joke cliffhanger and make it a later 'episode' in the Buck Rogers parody thing. That was kickass. And where they picked up again was so perfect I almost felt like a little kid again watching one of those shows with rapt amazement while eating sphagetti-oh's out of my He-man cereal bowl.. The atmosphere was done so beautifully it was scary.
It got a little slow towards the middle, with the commercials, and toy-store scenes, but picked up after he began making calls.
The portrait of Dawkins and Garrison was mega-funny for some reason.
The butterfly effect stuff was funny for a gag, but the ending of the episode was otherwise, meh... at least compared with the first half. Could have been any other ep. Could have done with more randomness, rather than the predictable close.
I'm watching it again, just for the awesome opening scene with the otters!
The future looks pretty damn cool, and it was funny how Cartman's prank phone calling weirded up the future in weird ways. Cartman's robot pet was also cool. Wonder what it would be like if those were real in this time!
The war between the United Atheist League, the United Atheist Alliance and the Allied Atheist Alliance seemed complex at first, but it was funny to find that the conflict was founded on a trivial question, which changed as Cartman kept prank phoning the past, which I'll rant about in a second. The See Otters were silly, they were pissed because they thought eating off of tables was illogical! OLOL! After the future changed a bit, they were pissed off cause they thought their name sounded better than everyone else. Guess it just goes to show you that we'd probably find a way to fight over something, even if it's not about religion.
Cartman prank phoning the past was a neat way to involve the other characters from the present, and it eventually saved the future, somewhat. It was funny to see the slightly altered past, Kyle missing his ride, and of course, how he f*cked up Mrs. Garrison and the other science guy by revealing the whole sex change thing, which managed to get him back into the past. It was also funny to see Cartman arguing with himself in the past. =P
EP RATING: 10/10 - Great ep, all of it just for a Nintendo Wii that Cartman won't be able to play for another two months!
Cause of the awesome way the ep turned out, I'm upgrading "Go God Go Part II" to 10/10 as well.
