I loved this episode! It was very solid and well paced. The fact they really made a point to show that "Cupid-Me" was in Eric's head, in front of his mother, Butter's, and Kyle, stood out to me. With his dolls it was alway more hidden from the public, but this time, Eric clearly did not care as much about who knows. I wonder if more will be explored.

favorite exchange:

Kyle:
You are going to tell everyone that you lied and we aren't a couple.

Eric:
Why Kyle? So you can try to ruin things for Token and Nichole?
Look at how happy they are.
Is it that you want to ruin that or are you just homophobic?

Kyle:
GOD-DAMNIT!

I like how it completely flips it.
Makes Kyle look like the jackass..
Then makes Eric look like a decent person,
if you did not know the original motive.

Just re-watched, still cracks me up, caught little things like "..with every black beat of my heart" in I swear lyrics. The Cupid-me thing is just so Cartman... :lol: I'd probly go 0.25 down (to8.75/10) in the rating, but that's only because there's so many better SP episodes and I don't want to overrate this one. It's a great episode anyway.
And yeah, I have to agree with some of you, Cartman is getting crazier every year. He's gone from 'slightly deranged selfish racist kid' to a 'dangerous bi-polar schizophrenic psychopath' over the years... gotta love it! .:mrgreen:


Btw. if M&T really wanted to troll the fans, they'd make Kyle gay... really gay. :lol: 90% of SP fan-base could never digest this (neither would I). It would be such mighty trolling, that I'm almost affraid they'll do it. :timmy: ^^

Can't get any crazier than having your bully's parents killed and cooked up as chili, and leaving the wedding ring in as proof (and that was 11 years ago). Everything after this is epilogue. :twisted:

After Cartman's pretty much cock blocked him and ruined his shot at pretty much every girl in their school it'd be funny if he tried acting really stereotypically gay just to get back at Cartman. It would be so out of character that Cartman would think he went in too deep again. Not that Kyle has much luck on the revenge attempts.

Unfortunately, given the significant portion of the female fandom that seems to ship all the boys in every direction (and in every position) I'd be afraid of how that would be received.

Yes, but you still have to admire how creative his insanity has become now. He can even convince Kyle his view is right and it's Kyle who's not seeing the "reality" of the situtation. lol :cartmanlaugh:

I truly wonder if this episode gave us a deeper look into Cartman's f'ed up psyche and his sexuality, I just thought this whole episode was a clever ruse of Cartman's to confess to Kyle, all i know, it made me laugh. Nice C@#$block move Cartman.

Awesome episode, I laughed so much... I liked this new cute gossip/soap opera psychopatic side of Cartman, the little obese Cupid (so tender and gothic when he was "dead" into the box with that carillon music in the background), the "gay" game, the final love song "I swear", Cupid final revenge... just all. Oh and SP version of Clippers and Nuggets? Awesome. XD

And what I like the most is the way Matt & Trey have played with common stereotypes bringing them to extreme and showing their stupidity and how much they stop individual freedom: to one side the racist bigotry of Cartman who forcedly wanted "black and black" together, to the other side the position of Nichole father who misunderstands that freedom wanting forcedly his daughter together with "white" persons...

So at the end if Token and Nichole decide to stay together 'cause they really want it and they like each other regardless of their color and people opinions... then true love really wins.

I only hope Kyle will have his revenge one day.

i hated this episode. 2/10 and what I consider the 3rd worst in SP history. It didn't make me laugh or chuckle once. It was extremely off and awkward. I would at least raise it to a 6 if Kyle got any type of revenge. Everybody was rather out of character, and the plot was lame and boring. After watching the first 2 or 3 minutes, I just flipped through another 2-3 minutes of footage on the Full Episode Player. I at least watched the entire "Cash for Gold" episode. When I don't watch a whole episode, I know it's horrible.

Top 5 list (number 1 being worst episode ever and number 5 being 5th worst)
1. Pip
2. A Million Little Fibers
3. Cartman Finds Love
4. Funnybot
5. Cash for Gold
(remember the higher up the list, the worse it is)
If you don't like the direction SP's going in, quit watching.There's nothing we could do about it, unless you're producer or higher in the authority chain.And they won't listen to fan ideas.It's not worth your time to only hate.

I really enjoyed this one. Certainly nice to see a Token episode and a Garrison lesson. And a neat twist on interracial couples. As others have said, the major con with this episode is the fact that Kyle doesn't get any revenge on Cartman. Though what Cupid-Me did was a great comeuppance. :lol:

All in all, I liked 16A, despite the low amount of my 2 favorite characters. (In fact, this was the first run since 11B to not have Yates. :() Really looking forward to 16B!

Just to clarify, the Richter Scale is not a 1-10 scale, it is open ended. We're just used to seeing values between 0 and 10. Also, the Richter Scale cannot have negative values, only decimals approaching zero. So that's not very analogous to your ranking system, which is fine. Whatever way a person needs to express their opinion is fine.
1-5, 1-10, A-F, decimals, whole numbers, fractions; whatever helps you get your point across, people.

I'm one of those people who just uses words since I can't bring myself to assigning numerical values to something so subjective. I like reading people's thoughts on episodes (good or bad) in the days after and summaries of what they did or didn't like are much more interesting than a numbered ranking. So kudos to everyone who backs their score with something to read.

Best episode of 16A by far! Everything was picture perfect and Cartman is back to being himself! Hope this trend continues into 16B!

I used to numerically rate things back in the day. Eventually I came to the self-realization that the numbers were mostly asspulls, and I was probably just trying to look "professional," being influenced by IGN and the like. :oops:
