Oh god no. It's not that parodying MLP is particularly horrible it's just that no good or original humor could possibly be made out of that.

Yeah, the plot seems rather meh from the press-release blurb. The SP crew (especially the animations team!) is probably getting burnt out after Last of the Meheecans & Bass to Mouth (2 great episodes BTW...) so this is probably a banked episode to give them time for a little well-deserved mid-run breather.

As for the Randy character, I'm more annoyed by his rather-frequent usage in recent seasons (especially compared to the other adult characters) than his personality. I don't mind a major role for Randy every now and then, but if I really want a goofy father-figure as a main character for my ideal animation show, let's just say that I would not bother watching South Park.

I'm more of a Sharon fan since she's level-headed and is more similar to Stan personality-wise than Randy is. She's my second-favorite female character after Wendy and my second-favorite adult character after Tuong Lu Kim.

Favorite Characters: KYLE -- STAN -- WENDY -- BUTTERS
Favorite Character to hate: C A R T M A N !!!

Well last weeks episode was hyped up a little more than usual and I personally thought it was a let down. Maybe this one will surprise. Seems like this is also setting up a possible Stan B plot. I think it would be funny to see Shelly watch Stan and they get into a big fight or whatever, or Stan and Kyle hangout and shows them really begin to be good friends again since the s*** episodes. But anyway it's a Randy episode so it should be good.

^ Really, when Randy is used as the adult who gets into the latest thing or whatever is when he's most annoying. He gets so caught up in something, he takes over any episode or situation faster than you can blink. If his role is small, and not there to be the idiot, fine. I guess. But it's really hard for me to like anything about him now as all I see him as this idiot who is a bad father and husband. Will this episode change that as he appears to be doing something for Sharon for once? Judging by the fact he gets into Broadway himself, he's going to steal the show yet again. :roll:
I love: Stan, Butters, Cartman, Sharon.

I ship: Stan/Cartman <3

Stan: MMOOMM!!
Sharon: What is it honey? (gasp!) My baby's killed again!
Haa, I love that line.

The fact that Randy's in the episode makes me feel kinda.... ugh. I'm kind of tired of Randy and Cartman and Butters being main characters in most of the episodes this season...
This episode can either be really great or suck really badly. I hope that this episode does not have a predictable plot. I have a feeling that M&T are last-minuting their ideas, since the preview was pretty short.

Oh, when, oh when, will my little Kenny be featured? Or Wendy? Or Bebe? etc. The plots keep on recyling the same characters over and over, we need fresh, new stories about new characters, or stories that build up around other character's lives. What about the Goths, or the Raisins girls? (Or Pip? jk) we haven't heard much of them in a while.

Maybe a big role by Sharon could save this one.

f*ck you haters, Randy is God. He is so fickle in his politics, one day an Obama fan, the next he is a Tea Party teabagger angry that he has a tiny dick. It is such a wonderful characteristic when you couple it with his outright retardation.

Aren't you afraid he might not vote for you next year, Mr. President? (I still think you're a better candidate than those GOP d*ckheads)

It's not worth going after "true" swing voters like Randy, they are going to switch who they vote for every cycle, as we seen in 2010. (seriously, voting for the people you got so pissed at before for wrecking things, when the reasons things are so stalled in congress is because of them, also. Two wrongs make a right in their eyes.)

About the episode:

People can complain about another Randy episode, but after what happened it is only fair to give Sharon and Randy another episode to hash things out/prove to the audience that they are truly back together, or if not. Either outcome, another ep is justified.

The TV promos for this week say the guys are teaming up with Robert Lopez on this one. He's the dude they made Book of Mormon with. Suffice to say there will be some significant music in this week's episode.

Knowing that, it's not going to matter who the episode focuses on, there's going to be some great, hilarious music that we'll all want to download. Trey hasn't been putting many songs in the series in recent years, so it's about time they got back to that. It really lets you know they care about their project when the creator(s) have their stop motion cartoon characters pivot from sh*t jokes into well written, but still immensely funny songs. That goes for any show.

You read it! You can't unread it!

I think if you dont like Randy episodes, you might not be old enough to get the humor in it or something. I dont get it. And comparing him to Homer, or Peter Griffin is absolutely ridiculous. He has depth, he is not just a fat ass oaf of a character that always f*cks sh*t up. He does intelligent things every once in a while. Just dont ever bring Towelie back and try to stay away from just Butter's episodes unless its up the "Bottom Bitch" caliber. Keep up with the Cartman being smart episodes he is a lot more funny when he is right. And Stan is an alcoholic. f*cking Genius!

^ That's the problem with Randy. He isn't some fun-loving dad. Homer from the Simpsons may be a beer-guzzling idiot too, but he has heart. You know he deeply cares about his family and he has done and said some pretty wonderful things to his wife over the years and takes time to get to know his kids, even if he may fail now and again. Randy does not do any of these things that's why I cannot jump for joy for him. He's only likable by those who don't see his flaws, or they do, they just don't care. :roll:

Hopefully Sharon saves the eppy, but I can't see the eppy being bad if she's in it. I'm too much a fan of hers to complain what she does tomorrow night. :wink:

now I wonder why it's called BRO down....
I love: Stan, Butters, Cartman, Sharon.

Rather you hate him or like him, Randy is the star of the show now. Yes, he does get a little annoying with his obsession of anomalous stuff in several episodes, but he's a great dad character and I can't wait to see what he's going to do on tomorrow's episode. As for Stan--who will look up over him? Grandpa Marsh barely show in the house since "You're getting old" and Shelly--will she might babysit him like she did with Cartman. Anyway, I'm looking for this and Randy/Sharon moments. :o

I wouldn't mind another Randy episode. The Creme Fraiche episode was awesome, so I thought.

I wouldn't mind seeing M&T make an appearance, themselves in this episode, announcing casting for The Book of Mormon, and Randy tries out for the part.

So much hate for Randy, yet he is such a wonderfull f*ckin character. :lol:
He's not an example of good behaviour and he's not meant to be. He is the best satire for a modern man with his childish obsessions and ridiculous behaviour... he's just hillarious. :D Also comparing him to Homer Simpson just shows you how differently M&T do things from the Simpsons crew....
It's almost like:
Simpsons: "All people are good in their nature, ALLTHOUGH nobody is perfect and everybody has his flaws."
South Park: "Most people are fkin evil selfish jerk-off assh*les, ALLTHOUGH there may still be some hope left for mankind."

Imho Randy is not annoying at all, Randy is the adult icon of this show.

I think episodes are best when writers stick to with what they know and they know musicals. The elementary musical was pretty good, lots of music in 20 minutes for not having a whole lot of time to do it.

I was hoping for The Thing episode though maybe having Kurt Russel and the chick from the new The Thing having a baby and it turns out to be a baby that looks like James Arness who played the thing in 1951.

Looking forward to the Broadway Bro Down still.
