The first game scene made me laugh. The episode did have slow parts and seemed low on dialog, i.e., it may have seemed rushed to some, BUT the BEAUTIFULLY executed--yet inevitable ending--made the rest a justifiable setup. I've waited for this particular satire, with this much force, for a very long time.
"I hate you, coach. I hate you."
All this stuff surrounding Steve Irwin's death is just what they've been doing for ages though, I mean c'mon Princess Diana has appeared in Hell for years, and you're all like "He only died a few months ago, it's not cool." but if Saddam Hussien died tomorrow I'd like to see which of you guys wouldn't be making jokes about his hanging.
The only problems I had with this ep was it's slow pace and the guy with the record player, although he was good, it was a bit over done.
I loved the way the kids never got any better at skating or hitting the puc.
I think this episode is going to get 7/10 Very good, but let down in some areas.
"Oh well that's where you put your legs behind your head and have someone lick your ass"...
finally they closed it up in their own style, by throwing an ending completely different than any sports movie ending, completely depressing and discouraging, therefore breaking the clichee.
conclusively, this 1-th season was quite good, measuring it tothe ninth season, or even the 6th to 8th seasons. we had some strong statements like Cartoon Wars, the Return of Chef, Go God Go, Mistery of the urinal deuce and even Smug alert or Miss teacher bangs a boy, some really funny episodes and parody based ones like: Manbearpig, Make love not warcraft and Tssst, and of course those which i consider to be the weakest of the season: A million little fibers, Hell on earth and Stanley's cup, but which still had their good and/or funny moments.
Eagerly expecting season 11.
P.S.: I'm particulary happy today, cause i just found out that i will be allowed to take my diploma paper in film studies (this cosidering that i'm attending an history-english univesity in romania) .BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT THE BIG NEWS IS. THE BIG NEWS IS I'M GOING TO FOCUS ON ONE SUBJECT IN MY PAPER: SOUTH PARK. imagine: 100-200 pages of south park study and analysis . f*ck i'm happy
The part with the Red Wings was great. The kids are supposed to go out there and overcome the obstacle (think Miracle), instead they literally get stomped into the ground. I laughed quite a bit, it was a good mixture between the WTF reaction and just laughing because it was so ridiculous and funny.
And the Steve Irwin-jokes... I don't think they put them in to be super-funny or anything. I guess some people gave them some sh*t about the S.I.-joke in Hell on Earth episode so naturally they had to joke about it again. Twice! It's just that... if people get pissed off about something they do, they will sure do it again. South Park just happens to be about being inappropriate and representing bad taste.
Randy was okay, but not the funniest of his roles.
And my favorite line: "I'm just his father... You're his COACH! You're like a father to him!"
Overall, 7/10 (maybe 8/10). Good times! Good end to a good season!
EDIT: Oh, also, I felt the 2 Steve Irwin jokes were clearly intended to remark on the unfounded criticism from Hell on Earth, and they definately hammered the point home, and combined with Stan's stone-faced look made me giggle some.
What a way to end the season - feeling all hollow and sad inside. Totally demoralising - I always joked with my friends that just one of those movies should have ended like this. Nice work Matt and Trey.
And all the scenes with the pee wee kids "playing" was hilarious, and anyone who has ever watched young kids play any sport would have laughed heartily at that, too. Especially when combined with the overzealous parent (Randy). Awesome.
+ Stan was Stan, nothing to comment on him. The way he stood on the final game with that "Tell-me-this-isn't-happening" look... Priceless.
+ Steve Irwin jokes? Hell yeah! Rubbing it in for all the pissy people who complained about the Hell On Earth 2006 episode.
+ The hockey team was adorable!
+ " I hate you coach, I hate you."
+ Stan told Kyle Ike wasn't gonna get hurt.
- Noticed something odd? Yes. Kenny didn't die in the entire 10th season. I'm of course not counting his WoW character getting killed. Feels incomplete without that.
- The narrator pissed me off. After the 4th time.
- Randy was too predictable.
The whole ending I was like O_O;. Matt & Trey know how the world works, huh?
I give it a 8/10. Would be 9/10 if Kenny would have died somewhere in this episode.
way to end the season - the announcer was great - I love that
with the needle getting pulled off the record - they started that in "The Biggest Douche in the Universe" <--> I thought it was funny then and still do
I like how they just did it all backwards at the end
"I knew you could do it son."
I watched the episode again this am before work and it's still hilarious
the whole Season was awesome - great job
