You have under 6 hours left of material to say what you want to say and wrap your show up, Matt and Trey. The Kenny thing is a step in the right direction...do away with the BP crap.


Nope, you are off by one season, Brendle :)

6 hours of material? That's 3 episodes. There are 2 episodes left in Season 14: 1413 and 1414 as 1412 just aired; we are in the 1412 post-air thread. But that is not their "last episode of the series on a stupid Coon/superheroes episode about the BP oil spill is BEYOND ME." You are forgetting about Season 15, which is 14 more episodes (7 hours) next year. And there may even be a renewal of the contract between MnT and CC for Season 16 and beyond. Episode 1414 is NOT the last show of the South Park Series.

6 hours, that's 16 episodes.

Sorry, data189, this is a South Park forum, not Mr. Garrison's math class. But as Mr. Garrison would say, data189, "F's for you!" :P

16 episodes left in the current contract is 8 hours of airtime (counting commercials). 6 hours of airtime as you say are left would be 12 episodes. Just think of it this way: there are two episodes per one hour of airtime.

There are two episodes left this season (one hour) plus 14 episodes next season (7 hours) for a total of eight hours, which is what I posted above.

Actually, I never used the word: 8 hours; I said two more episodes left this season and 7 hours next season:

yeah, right, :timmy:

you wrote that six hours == 3 episodes.

and i didnt count 8 eight minutes of comerrcials, so my result is more precisely.

I did the math correctly, actually.

I said Matt and Trey have under six hours of MATERIAL to say what they want to say, so you don't count commercials...so that's 22 minutes of the actual show per episode.

22 minutes per show, and 16 episodes left, is 5 hours and 52 minutes of material left.

So they have under six hours to say what they want to say. And yes, the series will most likely end after Season 15.
My name is Brendle, and I think Trey Parker is a genius.

No matter the actual air time of a show, in this case 22 minutes of show and 8 minutes of commercials, the convention in the TV Industry is that South Park is a 30 minute show (as is The Simpsons or Family Guy or King of The Hill or any 1/2 hour show) so two episodes is 60 minutes. Your non-conventional way would have three shows at 66 minutes while the rest of the world would have three shows known as 90 minutes.

Do not let this post-air tread derail over something like this you two. Back on track now: There are 16 episodes left on the contract; 2 episodes left this season. One or Two episodes left on Coon and Friends unless there is another twist and Coon and Friends are over, and perhaps Terrance and Phillip will air Wednesday. We will see what Sunday's Comedy Central Press Release has to say.

Now, about 1412: I found this interesting when comparing it to 1302. MnT kept the name of the comic book series/comic book printer the same in both episodes:

These 3 episodes will probably be released on DVD like Imaginationland


Yeah i was thinking that too probably be uncut & uncensored too
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!!!

The Rainbow Brite reference could be Cartman flying on the back of the Dark Lord Cthulhu. Has to be; a flying entity with Cartman along for the ride :)

That's really really cool! How did you catch that?

Is there any chance that Komik= McKormick? Some differences, but still... maybe a hint at the last name? To show that maybe M&T knew it was Kenny?

That's very good of you! But, not hating on Matt and Trey, I read that they had no clue who Mysterion was. Unless it was just some journalist trying to get a break, they didn't decide until recently. Either way, I think Mysterion=Kenny works out very well, since he's always been the question mark character; we've never seen his face, never really heard his voice (minus a few episodes) and he always put others before him (like when he electricuted himself to save the hospital in season, I think, 2). He does seem like the perfect hero, minus the fact that he doesn't hide the fact that he likes porn.

(I'm sure Superman likes Playboy too)
DON'T KICK THE BABY!

I've read from the FAQ guy that only Matt and Trey knew who Mysterion was.

And I get what you mean about Kenny being the question mark character. That's why I thought from the first "Coon" episode that Kenny was Mysterion.

And you're totally right about Kenny putting others before himself. Hah, I'm sure Superman liked Playboy. A lot of heros have dirty secrets XD

Kenny is really quite an interesting character. He's a hero, but he gets drugged out. He helps others, but is a total player. AND despite that we have barely ever heard his real voice, the kid is an amazing opera singer/save the rainforest singer. I love him sooo much. :unhoodedkenny:

Prophecy prediction: While I have a bad feeling that M&T are possibly setting Kenny up to be killed off again with this prophecy, I feel like Kenny has become too big of a character within the past few seasons for them to get away with that. My two theories about the prophecy are:
1)Maybe the prophecy just means that now the boys will all remember every time Kenny die?
2)OR that if even death may die, that there is no chance that Kenny will ever die again, and he'll be immortal without ever dieing, whereas now he's immortal but dies all the time?

Did anybody notice that in the first part of the episode, on the wall it says "Hpnotize" and then on the cracked mirror, "The End is Near"?

What could Hpnotize mean? Maybe Kenny gets sucked into the Cithulu cult the way he did with the David Blaine one?

And "The End is near"... uh oh...


Also, I just noticed that there's one part where we can hear Kenny's real voice, where he's saying "What the f*ck?" after seeing the picture of his parents being arrested at the cult.
