Nobody else thinks it's sick that they portrayed Randy masturbating in front of his son and 3 of his sons friends?
This seemed like the classic type of South Park episode one shot, that the casual viewer is into... ie. my local metal station. I was more into the last 2 episodes or It's a Jersey Thing, etc., really anything that has a major character development for Kenny, Eric, Kyle, Stan or Butters. After following the characters for almost 14 years, it is really interesting to see the lives they have carved out for themselves.

It works sometimes, but these days it feels more and more like one of the plots didn't get to finish properly. It turned what could have been another epic trilogy into an incoherent mess, and it ruined what could have been one of Randy's finest moments.
THIS. SO MUCH THIS.
It was ok. I originally thought I wouldn't really like it because the shake weight joke was so obvious and not funny at this point. The first part of the Randy plot I didn't like because it was essentially just him masturbating to food. But once he got into the kitchen, the episode picked up and started being funny again.
As everyone else said, Cartman as Gordon Ramsay= GENIUS
I thought there was going to be a little more Stan but he probably would have just interrupted the flow. Over all, a good season finally compared to some others. 7/10
I'm a little disappointed though, but that's to be expected. The moment I saw the preview, my thought was "What Would Brian Boitano Make?" That's what I was hoping for, but on the flip-side, I'm glad it didn't happen. Think about it. Brian Boitano is, ok, well it seems gay (but I haven't found information confirming it), and they have a shake-weight for guys, too.
I don't think I could watch an episode based on any other set of parents, though. Cartman's mom is boring, so is Kyle's dad and Kenny's parents.
I'm usually a Randy fan but I don't know how I feel about him getting continually retarded as time goes on.
(am i the only one who awed when Randy and Sharon were snuggled up on the couch watching tv?)
I had a pretty good feeling they'd play up the porn aspect of the food porn channel the way they did. And that they'd play up the hainge factor of the Shake Weight too. (I mean would'nt you?) The wank scene that followed "Daddy's TV time" was a bit OTT.
I laughed at the breakfast scene, after Randy had been up all night, and came up with that Fritata and Stan said "Can I just have a Pop-Tart?
Later on when they started that one scene off with the boys in the cafeteria, I just knew that Randy would be the chef there. I liked the Cafeteria Fraiche "open". lol.
Fatass as Ramsey was a tad stupid. Plus he didn't yell enough to sell it for me. Whenever I see Ramsey yelling at someone, I just want to see them either yell right back at him or punch him the f*ck out, and I didn't get that from Cartman.
Other than that, I quite enjoyed when Super Chef Throwdown America Ultimate Battle of Ultimate Ultimateness broke out, and all hell was breaking loose.
The ending was pretty expected, but I didn't think that the Shake weight's intended purpose would revealed like that. Well I mean the bit after Randy's hainge. I just thought they'd show Sharon throwing the thing out, or something. At the very end, I almost expected it to disappear in much the way that Big Gay Al did at the end of 'Boatride. Oh, and that was another thing. I kept expecting for Stan to say something once he realized what was going on in his parent's room. I mean wtf, not so much as a "gross" or "ew" or anything?
I know I'm leaving some stuff out there, but it's just little things. Not worth mentioning really. Now on to see what everyone else thought.
But I still thought this episode had some funny moments. Mostly involving the shake weight squirting Sharon in the face. That was what made me laugh most, I think, even if the joke may have been a little over done and perhaps a little juvenile. Whatever, it's such an obvious metaphor, why not push it as far as you can.
I'll still laugh every time I think about the lines "Can't go to sleep...mode." And "Shake Weight ... you're not really exercise equipment, are you?" Oh, and of course the kind of random but great furthering of the joke, "Here's money for cab fare."

South Park should be a lot more conscience of their obviously huge influence. With influence as the SP creators have, they can easily steer themselves into hell, if they choose to flaunt their influence so casually.
*spits out juice on monitor* lol! are you serious? ok first south park is known to be outragious and do things that would piss people off and possibly disgust a person all out of jokes and having a laugh at todays world second look at what you saying for a min a grown man a adult parent why would they watch south park and copy what a cartoon did? if they sick enough to masterbate in front of their kids cause they saw it on tv then they did tht crap before dude lmao come on what sane person would copy that scene and if you want to talk about influence yes people are influenced by the media which includes music movies news <<---- yes i said news cause ppl copy crimes that hapen on the news but you cant just go around and say omg dont say that some idoit will copy if they stupid enough to copy and not know the difference between fiction and reality then idk i mean thats just ........
