Muslim extremists, on September 11, 2001, apparently won the war with a single act before any of us were aware that the war had ever begun. This episode sought out to show the hypocrisy in our own culture that it is ok to criticize, mock, or outright slander ANYTHING, except of course Muhammed and his religion. By cencoring it, Comedy Central proved that Islam now truly is above criticism. That is, at least, in the public eye.
First of all, I hated everything that happened with this episodes, from the death threats to Matt and Trey, to Comedy Central censoring the word Muhammad and Kyle's speech at the end, and after that, pulling the episode out the air and from the website... All of this made me super sad because I had been wanting to see this episode all week, it was supposed to be a celebration, but it got ruined by a few people who don't understand what South Park is about...
Anyway! I don't want to talk only about the negative here! And when it comes to the episode, I loved it!
It was crazy in a way that only SP knows how to be crazy!
And, I would have never guessed who Cartman's dad was, and when we found out it was EPIC!
Also, the Super Best Friends are the best (My favorite is Moses, he's hillarious! )
I'm sure this wouldn't have been popular if not for the contraversy it created. Laughing at people who thought m and t censored it but the beeps were the funniest part asside from the attacks on gingers.
Fave ep: ESM Season 12,Sec fave: Butterballs Season 16
Look, I've been a South Park fan ever since a friend of mine bought a VHS tape of the original "Jesus/Santa Clause" thing started 2 years before the show even got picked up.
Episode 200 was brilliant, even without this whole I-slam, You-slam we all slam for Islam crap.
What really bothers me is that it seems that Cox Cable here in CA did not air episode 201 at all. This season has been set-up to record all new episodes on my DVR and a the day before it was listed as a "new" episode.
Around 11PM I finally had a chance to catch up and sure enough no recording. The episode was listed as the weeks before and ultimately never shown.
I understand that we now cower fear when anyone utters the dreaded "M" word, but jumping Jesus on a pogo-stick what's a "Recovering Catholic" have to do to let the Jews who run Viacom re-air episode 201 so I can finally check it out???
PS- Anything considered offensive in this post is merely meant for pointing out the absolute hypocritical standards that Comedy Central and Viacom have demonstrated to their viewers.
durka durka muhammad jihad...
I"ll try to decipher it, meh in my dreams..
> I still can't believe they censored Kyle's speech:(
> I"ll try to decipher it, meh in my dreams..
Good luck with that.
I now see that the speeches by Jesus and Santa are a reference to The Spirit of Christmas, maybe they mention that they'll buy everybody an orange smoothie.
I've blocked all Viacom networks from my TV with my parental controls over this. All they care about is viewership=money. Lets take that away until they pay attention.
List of Viacom networks:
Block them all. I'm also not buying or going to any Paramount movies.
Okay, I've seen it now. Pretty good. I loved the pay off on many of the things that the fans have been wanting to see for so long. I saw the ending coming. Didn't see Seaman coming though. ew. And yes, that is how you say it. "Seamun"... like "Supermun" or "Batmun" or "Madmun" (see here: http://mp3twit.com/1uV)
Oh, the concert was a giggle. (trey does a good neil diamond)
Didn't see the daddy issue playing out the way it did. I honestly thought that for a while that they were gonna say it was Muhammad. Although you know what this means now... Liane only has a pooner and not a peener as well, and you know what? I still wanna hit that hard.
Y'know what else? I love SBF Moses. *Moses!* "What?" *We need to find a way to stop Mechastriesand!* "Um... okay, uh... "
I won't go on about all the obvious problems with the ep. There's really nothing to be said on that front that most likely hasn't already been said.
