Another 'meh' episode. I mean, the giant router was a giggle, the porn stimulator-simulator was pretty funny, and when Randy Miggs'd the camp's computer lockdown trailer, I was nearly on the floor with laughter. (his sack must've been the size of a grapefruit) That was about it though. Did anyone else get a kick out of the fact that Jimbo has a green robe covered in pockets like his huntin' vest?
Wtf, NetZero? I thought they were primarily a dial-up service. How can you have 3 machines on the same service that way?!? (ok, tech nit-pick over with)

Oh, the Asian barf pron was funny to me, considering that a guy I know used to email one of those around to his friends with subject titles such as "Something to show your pastor on Sunday", "I thought your mother would really enjoy seeing this", and "A thought provoking political discussion". He also posted a link to it on his blog that simply read "DON'T CLICK HERE". :lol:

If anyone remembers the Steven Segal movie "On Deadly Ground", they'll understand Randy's speech at the end of the show. That was brilliant!

Okay, that episode was pretty f*cked in the head, but for some reason I was generally amused the whole way through, probably because I just have a naturally f*cked sense of humor, but I'm sure you all know that by this point. But anyhoo, on to teh reviewin'.

Now,I can totally empathize with those poor people in South Park, I know what it's like to lack the internet. It can be quite an annoying thing. Okay, I don't check pr0n sites like, well, Randy (which was pretty insane), but I still use the internet for a lot of sh*t. I don't think I'd move all the way over to Cali, but, yeah...Last time I lacked the internet, I got really bored, slept a lot, and wrote those rather sh*tty SP FanFics that I'll be amazed if they're still on FoSFF....but enough about my personal relations with this. :P

The episode was incredibly silly, and it didn't produce the best humor of the season, I will agree, but I didn't find it half bad. Maybe it's cause I'm a simple person who finds retarded things amusing, but I always find it funny when the government agents and police commanders try to reason with inanimate objects, such as the f*cking internet hub. Kyle's solution to that problem is so true to how the internet works, sometimes Power-Cycling, as it's called, just...well, works!

The whole Randy watching porn thing...I'm not reaully sure if I should find that funny, but I will admit it got me laughing around the time when he started watching the Brazilian Fart Porn...the other two weren't so great, but the "simulated" versions were quite amusing, I gotta say...oh, and I'll admit that the simulated porn actually reminded me of Nikki/Lynn's random MS Paint Art Thread, so, yeah, that's the other reason why I thought it was amusing. That, and then I was loling when the dudes busted in, thinking a tiger was attacking someone. Randy's splooge all over the place wasn't really the best sight to see, but his excuse was pretty funny. I've always had a soft spot for Randy. Again, I guess I'm just a naturally f*cked individual.

Man, Shelly is such a tard. Anyone who knows me well enough knows that I would have most likely handled that little situation she was in near the end rather...differently...definitely not just a simple "Oh.....uhh...hey."...stupid chick. It was actually a nice little nostalgia trip to see her play a slight roll in the ep, as well as beat up Stan for no real reason other than to vent her own frustrations. Yet another hint of Classic SP, which this season has been really good for...now all they gotta do is f*cking kill Kenny!

I'm going to give this episode a 8.5/10 rating...it was average at best, but not horrible at least. Anything can top the Britteny ep....well...mostly anything. Had it not been for the classic SP element involving Shelly, Randy's usual involvement and reactions, and my general empathy and being able to relate to the general scenario at hand, I would have given it a 7, or at least a 6.5, but that sounds too harsh for some reason. :P

OMG. I've worked at an ISP for over a year and to me that episode was ehFING AWESOME! You have no idea how many times power-cycling fixes things. Probably half of the tech support calls are solved by powercycling a modem or router. As soon as I saw "Internet" I just knew it. Go Kyle! Show America the way!

Maybe now I can watch Japanese girls exchange bodily fluids at work with less interuptions...

Also I know it's a good South Park when it's over and I'm like "Holy sh*t, where'd the time go?"

I have tired of plots where something relatively minor happens/is lost and the whole town/country freaks out. It seems to happen so often that the boys probably have Bug-Out Bags on hand at all times.

I also tire of the plot device that super smart and highly paid government experts act like total idiots and the solution always comes from a little boy. Really, it gets old when a solution is so simple and no one except one of the boys thinks about it.

The Randy plot basically just strengthens my case that he and Sharon have little reason to be together. He doesn't get his kicks from her obviously.

Stan: Well, damn, he didn't do much. I guess the only thing that is notable to Stan fans is that it showed how nice he was that he cared about Shelly and her relationship enough to try and comfort her, and that brings me to the best part of the episode.

Shelly and the Online Dating Plot: It was by far and away the best part of the episode. It was funny, it actually seemed realistic, and the subtle point it made was great. Seriously, had it not been for the relative strength of this plot, this would have been a 5/10 episode.

But, back to how freakin' formulaic this episode was. You knew the second Randy first looked up porn that it would come back. You knew the second that he knew he could get into the trailer what would happen. You knew the SECOND that you saw The Internet what would happen, and you knew it would be Kyle who figured it out the second you cut back to him on the couch. You knew the second that you found out the internet was out in town that the entire town would slowly devolve into chaos. You knew basically every plot device this show would employ and all of the "twists" that would happen. Nothing happene dthat you couldn't have guessed.

And that is, honestly, my biggest gripe. When I start nodding off during a South Park episode and I wake up and am not lost at ALL, you know that something is up. If I fell asleep during the best South Park episodes, I'd be lost when I woke up because the plots are good and unpredictable. I literally said the second that I saw Randy look up porn the first time, "We're gonna see his semen later."
And you know what? I was right. And when I saw him walking around holding his crotch, I knew that when he did ejaculate there would be a lot of sperm. And I was right on the money. I mean, not only do I not really find it all that funny, but I found it boring and predictable.

BUT, as I said before, the Shelly plot and her interactions with Stan save this episode.
That's how it's down here on the farm!

I really liked this episode i thought it was the best one so far as when i lost my connection last week i was stressed all i was thinking was what emails was i missing,and how is my stuff i`m selling on ebay doing. lucky that it was just down for about 8 hours i did try to reboot by taking the lead out the back but no luck.Anyway back to the episode nice to see shelly have a big part in this and she still beats on stan,i though it was nice of him when he saw her crying and he tried to confort her and good old kyle i knew he would sort it out in the end,randy makes me laugh no mater what he does how can it be that "2" 9 year old boys are more mature that the adults. 9/10 would have been full marks if cartman had been in.
Kyle: Why? How could you do this? There are people starving in Alabama and you give Cartman a million dollars?

Cartman: Line? Lines! I HATE LINES!!!

Wow...nicely done SP. Good episode.

I enjoyed the many "good" movie references. Still laughing about John Carradine and Henry Fonda Grapes of Wrath characters....

It seemed like a slap on the face on society, and it's actually pretty true.

Loved the internet porn jokes....omfg...

And c'mon, giant linkys router....that's f ing funny...

I loved every second of it.
I enjoyed the references to You Tube and Wikipedia... we don't fully realize how much our life is based on them I guess...
And I thought it was kind of funny that the first thing that appeared on the screen after they got the Internet back was the Drudge Report. That's where I get most of the international news from and I remember Trey saying in an interview that he's kind of adddicted to it too.

And Randy... he's just... A GOD!!! :D

"Don't you get it? There's no Internet to find out why there's no Internet!!" Brilliant :mrgreen:

I guess all the Internet needed was some rest.

lol, i got a general error coming into this forum (irony!).

i LOVED this ep, my favourite of the season so far. the only scene that bored me was the b/w scene. everything else was so f*ckin awesome (randy covered in jizz, sibling rivalry reintroduced, virtual porn simulator among best bits)!

I think the season has gone like this:

Over Logging: 9.5/10
Major Boobage: 8/10
Britney's New Look: 7.5/10
Eek, A Penis!: 7.5/10
Canada on Strike: 6/10
Tonsil Trouble: 0.5/10
Yes, at first I was happy to be learning how to read. It seemed exciting and magical, but then I read this: Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand. I read every last word of this garbage, and because of this piece of sh*t, I am never reading again

This was one of the worst episodes I've even seen. The porn thing was cool. Last year I found myself in a very similar situation when Virgin Media had some difficulty with providing me with the network and RedTube was needed ;)

But the Internet as modem/router/whatever just made me feel embarassed while watching. I currently studying the Cisco networking material and I found it absolutely jouvenile to see that Kyle "solved" the problem with the Internet. From now on I'll try to be more sceptic about Randy-focused episodes. "More Crap" was the initial singal and I would call the new one "Even More Crap" instead of "Over Logging".
