Fave ep: ESM Season 12,Sec fave: Butterballs Season 16
Anyways....I remember the Sarah McLaughlin commercial on the human rescue league for dogs/cats and I think that was a small inspiration for this show. It was an annoying/disturbing piece.
Happy to see Kyle and Butters getting a lot with Cartman. It was funny to see Kyle say "god dammit!"
Swimming in KFC gravy...nice All the slavery stuff, you leave to cartman (refrencing back to last season) and nice to hear "Screw you guys I'm going home!"
8.2/10. Overall okay, beginning a little dry. The Royal pudding one was just better to me, but this is a solid 2nd in the season.
I disagree. I think that, for the most part, the story was good (as always, I mean Trey & Matt are terrific storytellers) but I think it got a little out of hand with the Slash story near the end.
I myself didn't laugh a whole lot because I just don't know anything about the NCAA, and I don't follow the latest news of Slash.
So far the 15th season is only ok (Funnybot is the best), but mabey Matt & Trey are just burned after The Book of Mormon crazyness. Mabey we will get a lot better shows in the later run of the season.
Clever, with references to Miracle on 34th St., and a really original premise. Great job!
I ship: Stan/Cartman <3
Sharon: What is it honey? (gasp!) My baby's killed again!
Haa, I love that line.

Slash appeared with the Black Eyed Peas during the 2011 Super Bowl Halftime show. The performance of both the Black Eyed Peas and Slash was strongly criticized not just for the quality of the performance but for the absolute mismatch between the performers. Slash played "Sweet Child O' Mine" with the Black Eyed Peas and a few notes from this song were heard when Cartman was talking to someone in his office about Slash. Butters was singing a Black Eyed Peas Song in this episode.
Why would Slash who is a hard rock guitar player (and a very good one at that) perform at the Super Bowl Halftime show with a crappy dance party group like the Black Eyed Peas? What possible reason would he have to do a piss-poor rendition of a nearly 24-year-old song with a group of almost 40-year-olds who appeal mainly to a teenage fanbase? This could be the basis for the "slash will perform anywhere if he gets paid" and the not being real stuff. And this is also why Butters was singing a Black Eyed Peas song. Any song could have been chosen for Butters to sing. But the Black Eyed Peas were chosen to tie it together with Slash in an apparent dig at the Super Bowl performance.
We have Slash in this episode performing at uncharacteristic events, Butters singing a Black Eyed Peas song, and few notes from the song Slash performed with the Black Eyed Peas at the Super Bowl. The obvious answer is that it is meant to reference the Super Bowl performance.
As for the stuff about college athletes being slaves, they do get a free education and housing which can be worth anywhere from $15,000 to $60,000 per year depending on which college they attend. So it isn't like the athletes are not getting anything out of it, not to mention that college athletics is the primary recruiting ground for the professional sports leagues. It's tough to get into the pros if you haven't played at the college level.
