That was Stan...


oh my God.
sorry. Stan. my bad. i'm a new southpark watcher, so i really can't tell them apart. lol.


Blasphemy, heresy! He did say Jehova!

Anyway, I think the Kyle-Jesus parallel was well done, especially the scene in which he tries to prevent people from stoning (squirreling?) Mr. Garrison and paying the people's debts aka paying for their sins. The ripping on the Obama -enthusiasm (what animated Tv show does something like that nowadays?), the references to Life of Brian and the use of the "took 'er jerbs" rednecks have been great too.
All in all another great and funny episode. There hasn't been ONE disappointing episode in this season so far. If this winning streak continues it is going to be much better than season 12.

:D Totally!
What made that one special is that it was after the Season-ending-cliff-hanger episode about who was Cartman's dad. M&T never intended to answer that episode and threw the April Fool's joke at us instead. There may never be a good setup like that one. So, if they did fool us, I doubt it will be with T&P. Something else...hopefully, is up their sleeve. It could play off this last ep or be entirely different/surprising. I think the fans are mature enough to really enjoy an April Fool's joke this year... so I repeat: "APRIL FOOLS! APRIL FOOLS! APRIL FOOLS!"

This episode was fantastic. Brilliant, simply brilliant. In fact season 13 has already been much better season 12. We're slowly getting back to season 11 quality as every episode so far has been a winner in my book. Anyway I usually enjoy political episodes like this just because I enjoy seeing what Matt and Trey have to say about it. Occasionally they overdue it but luckily this one was right on the money. And Kyle's sermon on the mount made a scary amount of sense.

Another thing I loved about the episode was it was just plain hilarious! So many great moments from the bank guy at the beginning, the family eating hot dogs and tomatoes, Cartman only being heard and not seen, Garrison getting attacked by squirrels, the last supper pizza scene, and of course the chicken and the wheel. Funniest thing I've seen in a while. And of course the ending. Poor Kyle. I also enjoyed Stan's whole subplot and the pay off with him just destroying the Margaritaville and giving up. He never seems to get a break does he? Doesn't help that he has a moron for a dad.

Anyway this season 13 has been off to a great start. Let's hope they keep it up.

I'm amazed it's taken them so long to go and do an episode like this. Not the best of season 13 but it's still great.

Loved this episode, I always watch every episode, but this one finally felt like a more "classic" South Park episode, not just being a parody of a movie (although they are funny, I enjoyed this episode the best so far this season).
Favorite parts of the episode would have to be the beginning where Stan invests the $100, "and it's gone..." "It didn't do so well" lol.

Then the religion similarities with the economy and God/Jesus were great. "He wouldn't just have one son, are you retarded" haha.

Then my all time favorite scene (which I have watched about 100 times now), was Stan trying to return the Margaritaville and finally getting to the Treasury Dept. and the Headless Chicken dancing on the board haha, the little song the guy played made it so much more amazing.

Then Of Course "the person we have to thank every day for this is Barrack Obama" haha.

Great Episode, Please keep up with these style of episodes instead of just parody's! :D

I do love SP: This episode was good but I find fault as well: as usual Matt and Trey deliver on the slick, cultural pop jokes and this one may even hold up as relevant over time. Kyle returning as a main character who attempts to bring a rational perspective to an insane world was refreshing.

But there was more unsatisfying about the show than was great. It characterized the state of the nation's financial and government institutions during the economic crisis as people gone crazy and that's about it. We're left with a dead end: no one really knows whats going on, if you want to blame someone, throw a rock in the air you'll hit someone guilty. You'll get no answers from South Park and shouldn't expect any.

As usual, they take the questionable stance of claiming that the media's uncritical adoration of Obama is a reality. Is this partisan? Why didn't they do the same when the Bush Administration was in power (or did I miss an episode)?
Obviously they don't read the same articles or watch the same news programs as I do.

The usual bad guys are brought out: religious fundamentalists, small town groupthink, bad parents, rednecks, various opportunists and the government.

The problem is we are genuinely in trouble in this country and there's not too much to joke about in reality. This could have been a great chance to skewer the stupity and greed of folks at the big firms and the regulating agencies that looked the other way: AIG, Goldman Sachs, Paulson and Bernanke, the SEC and the OTS - where were they? I could use a good laugh about them, and if South Park decided to go after them, I'm sure they'd do it right. Obvious targets, yes, but the episode's clear avoidance of them was glaring.

I did like that both Randy and in the end Kyle were wrong: Kyle's debt payment for others sent the idiot adults out to incur more debt. That's certainly nothing to feel heroic about.

The last supper scene is priceless and you can't beat the voodoo economics scene with Stan at the Treasury. Turning Kyle into a Jesus figure and Cartman into a Judas figure is classic genius South Park.

For a temporary distraction from reality, this would be the show to watch.

Well, this is a cartoon, you know. :roll:

Because everyone hates bush. I do too. Besides, this joke was better because Obama is considered an inspiration: the joke becomes more edgy.

Well dude, they only have 30 minutes. they can't cover everything. Give them a break.

I was so pleased and proud with new episode, "Margartitaville." The last season didn't really do anything for me. The show seemed tired and listless. That's to be expected, and I have been pins and needles waiting for something fresh, sharp, original and with the times. Congrats South Park Team! It was great to see you return to full form, at least for the last episode! :wink:
