Oh come on! It took him THREE LONG PAINSTAKING YEARS to get that many posts! Leave him alone!
Yeah, and I didn't even have internet access half the time! Imagine the torture!
BW, your thoughts on the episode?

Whew! We can rest easy knowing you won't be posting here again, since you're never watching this f*cking show again.

Pretty tame opener, but good otherwise.
8.5/10 for me, nice openner
I really actually loved the episode. Which was odd and I think I've been exposed to American TV too long.
I'm Canadian and download my South Park off the net because it's not going to hit our airwaves for another 2 months. That being said I live in a sheltered universe and I hadn't heard the n-word until I was about 14 and only had the vague sense that it was a negative word I shouldn't ever use. Then this summer I went to a convention with a bunch of friends from the States and nearly had a little heart attack when one of those friends, who was white, came into the room and said "WHATZ UP NIGGAS" very loudly. Prime example of the episodes point about people using it more and more I suppose, unless that was common before... O_o;
Notes on the episode:
Even the black guys in the audience thought the word was "n*ggers" during the Wheel of Fortune scene, which I found amusing. Only Randy caught sh*t for it.
I love how everyone knows that Randy is stupid, including Randy. XD
I found Randy's poetry reading scene really embarrassing to watch for some reason.
I've become quite a fan of Craig, and enjoyed his "I don't think that would be a very good idea sir" thing about calling Cartman fat.
I also enjoyed how Cartman instantly forgot about being upset over being called fat the moment he saw the midget again.
AND that Principal Victoria and Mr. Mackey both tried to warn the Doctor about Cartman. It's so true. Cartman will never change.
HAHA Cartman won a fight. I also noticed that Cartman seems to talk to Kyle the most for some reason that probably has to do with Cartman actually liking him. He instantly picked out Kyle as the person who set them all up to call him fat (expected) and happily tells Kyle that the midget isn't allowed to talk he'll laugh too hard. (Talking to Kyle = also expected based on the last season where he went to San Fran to save his butt).
Anyone else notice that Butters has completely replaced Kenny? In previous seasons it would have been Kenny who came running up to Stan and Token to tell them about the fight. Stan would have just been like "what, Cartman's going to fight the midget?" in response to the muffled Kenny talk, but nope, Butters told them instead.
Lastly I felt the episode ended strongly with the "I don't get it!" "now you get it!" thing. So many times it seems that they have no idea how to end well and fall flat. I felt this one was pretty strong.

... Why I thought you were dead! I-I don't even know who told me that, but I'm so glad it wasn't true!
This is long, bear with me.
-Well, of course, I was stoked (yeah, I said "stoked") upon seeing the opening credits.
-"Randy Marsh, Come on down!!!" Oh wait, wrong game show, my bad. But still, Wheel?
- N_GGERS... I still had no clue what it could be until Vanna turned that letter. And that brings up another thing, I may not have majored in English, or even made any sort of good grades in the subject, but should that word even be spelled with 2 g's? Oh, and when I saw n_ggers, I knew what he was going to say, but I was still curled up in a ball, watching it through my fingers like Kyle in Passion of the Jew.
- "Race War! Race War!" lol.
- Dave Nelson ties in to n-ger because... (Ok brain, it's South Park, just roll with it...)
- Uh oh, uh oh! Cartman over-laughing, Cartman over-laughing! Oh... jeeze... interest waining, interest waining... gah!
- Oh, and by the way, my guess is that that new teacher is the new Kindergarten teacher.
- Lol, "Philistine Cigarettes"
- Also, that picture of Rosie O'Donnell, and Principal Victoria in the office
- "Dress them up like beavers"?
- Coffee House scene... What the f*ck.
- I was about ready to punt that little fat-ass in the gym scene.
- I also had a feeling "we don't take kindly" would appear in this ep.
- Aaaand, there's Kramer.
- I laughed when Stan and Token stopped in the middle of their fight to run off and watch Cartman fight the midge.
- The fight; damn, fatass has really let his hair grow out. He's just about  this far away from hippie status. Also, I can't see what he was laughing at when he had Dave pinned down at first, unless it was his ass, but still.
- "Oh come on, you're the biggest nigger-guy in Washington" XD
- "Nnnay?" also, an XD
- "Tom, it appears that the "nigger-guy" epidemic is ov.. aww, dammit, I said it didn't I." lol.
- Oh, and "Say uncle" isn't Christmas Story to me. Hell, I can't think of a single person who hasn't done that to someone, or had it done to them at one point in their lives.
- The ending was kind of "ennh".
All in all, 8/10. Although I'm only giving it that because it's the start of a new run, and I'm glad to be seeing something new.

Two months? XD Oh, you silly person. Try mid-late October at the absolute earliest.
Really enjoyed watching the episode with better quality (re: AVI), too. I think I can pinpoint my favourite scene to the start of the Cartman/midget fight now.
Also, in response to some earlier complaints:
Why the hell was Butters in a bar?
Butters was in the bar, Kyle was in the bar, and Ike was in the bar because it was used as a kind of gathering spot to cheer Randy on. They had parental supervision and nothing bad was going on.
Why does everybody in the hallways looks over when people are talking? Not every little thing anybody says or does has to be some sort of mass gathering.
Everybody knew what had happened with Stan's dad, and everybody knows that Token is black. Obviously, there's gonna be some interest in how they interact.
Why do the kids have lockers in the first place? It's not like they have different classes. It's just Mrs. Garrison's class. Nothing else.
I had a small locker, about the size of theirs, when I was in fourth grade, and I only had two teachers and stayed in one room the whole day.

Me too, but mine was more like a cubby-hole, and I had to go across the building to go to another class.
All in all, a really class episode. Not as good as some previous episodes, but if they keep it at this level, I'll have no worries. Too be honest, I was getting a little concerned by the end of series 10, so lets hope it's back on track now!
South Park Rules!
"Oh well that's where you put your legs behind your head and have someone lick your ass"...

I didn't see a locker until I got to 7th grade. Until then, we put our backpacks into a closet or in or under our desks.
The only good Slash is the one from Guns N' Roses.
Well, 11x01 had good beginning and funny ending, but nearly all other material was slighty boring, including mindless and stupid Cartman vs. midget plot I don't like the way how South Park nowadays uses political plots, new unfunny characters etc.
South Park is still going to wrong direction

Dude wait a minute... you thought the mindless/stupid midget plot AND the not so mindless political plot were BOTH bad??
What on earth did you like in this show? Terrence and Phillip farting on each other? Kenny dying in a totally predicable way every single episode?
