I did like the Tron thing. And the Yahtzee game.
I've seen it three times now, and I'll comment later (when I've had some sleep). But I did pause the show several times to see everything listed in the banner during Cartman's podcast, and during the friend party given by Stan's profile.
Pip was not in the episode I hope he is going to be referenced in episode 200. I like Pip, even though MnT don't. I guess Pip is gone - moved away or something. But for 1404, I did have the feeling of old time South Park and still keeping up with current events (FB). As I said, more later after some sleep.
Good job, MnT Good night!

Last week's show was simpering, inane, and non-sequitir, using head explosions, giant-balls, and fried chicken as modes for jokes. And I loved it.
Now take tonight's show. It was intelligent, super-dense (seriously: Facebook, Chatroulette, Mad Money parody, and Tron), and it had a good heart with a good message. It was not ROFL material, certainly, but it was great. I loved it.
I don't know if it's my blind zombie-esque devotion to the show, or if I'm simply someone who can accept a large range of topics and episode styles... but the fact that South Park can be good both of those ways... kinda just serves as a testament to its awesomeness.
8/10. In my opinion, this run has been really solid so far.
200th next week! Can't wait!

So are mine. And many of my friends there are family. I don't play Farmville, nor Mafia Wars, but I do play Bejeweled Blitz and Jungle Jewels. I love Tetris-like games.
Strong first act.
The start of act II was trippy. Never heard of chatroulette. Stan getting stuck in Facebook was comical- how asinine and comical Facebook communication can be is shown in person to person and hilarity is the result. The Cartman/Kyle scene was good, especially since it wasn't about them fighting. The theater scene is a little tragic, really.XD
Act 2 was strong.
"Dude, f*ck your crops!" was hilarious. The profile's voice had a bit of Cartman, Stan, and Satan. "f*ck off, dad." I liked it.
This was a great episode. The message was clear and communicated effectively- Cartman was used well, Kyle was used well, Stan was great, and overall, I was extremely pleased. It didn't make the episode about Facebook itself, but about the devaluing of relationships due to social media. Great laughs, great message.
The Tron parody was purely aesthetics, which was smart. The Jim Kramer parody-awesome, and while Act 3 was the weakest plot wise, it contained many great lines.
9.5/10. Best of the season because it remain focused and on point.
Stan is a badass at Yahtzee, loves his Xbox, studies in school(which makes him better than I), and just rules. Kyle is sick of ninja talk and wonders if The Hurt Locker deserves the oscar.
Cartman: Line? Lines! I HATE LINES!!!
(What is up with Kenny's LT? What is it from 1992 or something?)
I'll be honest, there have been some nights when I've been the Kip Drordy of the here. You know, those times when it's really late (or early), you're wide awake and bored out of your skull? Yeah, I've just sat here refreshing the BBS seeing if there's any new posts, and been a little bummed when there aren't any.
Fartman's take off on Kramer is always a giggle. I just wish that once, one of those buttons had played the turkey gobble from Between Two Ferns with Jon Hamm. I don't know why, but whenever I see a big red button, that's what I expect to hear when it is pressed. (I know, I'm just speshul like that.)
I really enjoyed the Tron spoof, even though I've never seen the movie. (did make me want to go and look up all the different versions of the Daft Punk theme for the upcoming movie though) Actually that's the second reference to a movie this season that I haven't seen, but am aware of the plot and such of.
Farmville seems like such a wäst of time to me. Hell, it's just a giant version of those... digi-pet keyring things, or whatever the hell they were called that were around in the ancient late 1990's, and I never saw the point in those either.
I know I had 2 or 3 other scenes to comment on here, but I seem to have forgotten them (been really ADD tonight for some reason). I'll just conclude with this; I refuse to get a FB myself, but I have been considering a twitter account as an outlet for the randome stuff that floats through my head from time to time. I've also been considering a LJ account for... ever, but mainly just to comment on other blogs (all 2 of them) that I follow.
OH! (thank god for people posting while I'm hand-crafting this fine post for you.)
I'm glad to see that they were able to fit in Chatroulette (charlotterae lol) somewhere in there. I know some have been calling for that. That line about wading through dicks makes me laugh every time I hear it.
Well now we have Confirmation. Stan's a Scorpio. (and he's 8 again) And Trey's b-day is the 19th, so we can therefore assume that Kyle's b-day is on May 26th.
More stuff later. Maybe after I've seen the uncensored version and freeze-framed on all of the little details I missed the first time around. I'm so fcukin' tired right now that I have no idea how I am able to write... or how trees work.

Kenny connects to the internet with a computer provided through the One Laptop per Child program. =p
*slow clap*Oh hi. So, how are you holding up? Because I'm a potato.

Oh and the dates of the boys are completely accurate, minus the year. You just need to take off 8-9 years from the year to get their "birthyear".
Season 1 (1997) = 1989 (They were all 8 at the time)
Season 4 (2000) = 1991ish (They were all practically 9 by now as they were in fourth grade)
Season 13 (2009) = 2000-2001ish (Stan's the oldest, so he turned "10" in Whale Whores, but it may've just been a birthday that "doesn't count" )
so forth. This episode was prety good overall, but I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE 200TH EPISODE! It's gonna kick ass!
I actually just started my 200th Episode tribute today (I had an idea and started working on it, but eventually ended up really hating it) and it's due in like 5 days so I'm gonna be under the stress (well, 1/10th anyway since it'll be only 2 minutes, not 20) that Matt and Trey are under every week xP
And the Tron reference was great also. Trey and Matt keep delivering the goods here in the 14th season.
Favorite line: "Stan! Poke your Grandma!"
