It also seems to make fun of how formulaic and lacking of creativity and vitality that comedy seems to be anymore. The thing about pushing the boundaries I don't know if that was a reference somehow to M&T or to other people doing it for no reason...either way, re-watch it. It has to sink in
With K-10 a parody of K9 and the Queen Spider in 'Red Hot Catholic Love" a parody of the Queen Spider from the Third Doctor story "Planet of the Spiders".
And I disagree with an earlier comment that the interindustry based humour was too much. I still found it funny and I know virtually nothing about the comedy world. Its intelligent humour based on ironies and what we know of the actors, Daleks from Dr. Who and our own tendency to take ourselves too seriously.
Also, these episodes - as with movies, TV serials, etc - are on the drawing board and completed well before their release here. So its no surprise that anything listed as coming soon has nothing to do with the current affairs of the world.
Im sure a Bin Laden episode will be aired during this season and look forward to it.
As always, I enjoyed it. I wish there were subtitles for Cartmans German dialogue, though.
This was a clear IMPROVEMENT and a step in the RIGHT direction. Finally they made an episode with a creative concept and a clever point: comedy has become so easy/systematic/formulaic that a robot could be programmed to do stand-up and probably do it better than most of the comedians today.
But I suppose if some of you giggle at disgusting, immature toilet humor like a Japanese man crapping in someone's mouth, or Cartman repeating the same unfunny phrase over and over again...it's no wonder you hate this episode.
So far this season I've been fairly disappointed though. The first one, while I see the point they were trying to get across to the audience, still lacked much humor. It was more just toilet humor. This one though is at least an improvement.
Favorite South Park Character: *too many* But I like Kenny,Kyle,Cartman,Butters,Satan,& Damien.
