Yikes. I wonder how Sheila will think about her son now. Maybe she'll feel regret for what had happened exactly 18 years ago.

This was all kinds of brilliant. It had the feel of an episode with a lot more than "six days" of thought put into it.
Where to begin?
Kyle becoming his mother in an epic homage to BLU. Highly symbolic of the way many young people inevitably turn into their parents.
At the same time, it's a great observation of how we unfairly judge TV and movies of the past by modern social standards. Okay, we censor the racist caricatures of Bugs Bunny as an Asian persona (that's just mean) but does that mean we have to also censor Daffy Duck getting blasted in the face with a shotgun such that his bill spins around his head and ends up backwards?
Sheila wanted to censor Canadian entertainment based on a conservative fear of damaging impressionable youths. Kyle wants to censor Canadian entertainment based on a liberal fear of hurting someone's feelings. It shows how you can go too far either way and end up at the same place.

I felt the same way. Not just because they were old, but it reminded me of how much older I am now since I first watched Terrance and Phillip rip ass on each other.
Terrance and Phillip has always been a meta commentary about South Park the TV show. Here Matt & Trey are using them to illustrate how their tastes have changed over time and show how pathetic it would be if they were still doing the same types of episodes they were doing 20 years ago.

So together we have an amazing commentary that says at the same time, "Hey, don't be such a douche about old TV shows" and "We've moved to other things that are also funny and that's a good thing."

Lastly, I'd like to point out the growing number of female doppelgangers in the show. It's curious that the males who are drawn to their female doppelgangers are usually the subject of ridicule in the show. Fatass, Mr. Maki, PC Principle. Guys who are to one extent or another, in love with themselves. It's not just a cliche of "here's a lady who is just like you; enjoy!" These are some architypical characters who are usually portrayed as an antagonist and they could only fall in love with someone who was exactly like themselves. In other words, "Go fuck yourself!" :lol:

Maybe they don't want to end the gender war.
It has lasted long enough, the gender war should have ended by now.
I may even agree with you but see, it's neither me nor you to write the episodes.
But I think you agreeing with me is all that matters at the moment.
South Park is way funnier than Family Guy.
Also Mr. Garrison and Donald Trump are two SEPARATE people with completely different career backgrounds.

Or she'll be right proud of him, even if his motivation is different from hers.

Maybe it is a bit far-fetched, but I was wondering if there is a reference to some fans of the show: I read many people write they didn't enjoy "doubling down" and nearly all those people wrote: "it hit too close to home". Now the same happens to Kyle, although in a slightly different way.

He had a reaction, and he turned into his mother, as many have pointed out.

I usually enjoy rating the episodes but for this one it's hard, l still don't understand if I liked it or not.

Can't wait for the next one, in the meanwhile I will watch this one again a couple of times
He is the record!

The season finale is this Wednesday. My main requirement for this episode is to show all the boys and girls at school getting along with each other again.

This is the first episode of south park I've watched in many years and I loved it. The show is just as funny as it has ever been. The new principal and strong woman are hilarious and I liked the relationship between Cartman and his girlfriend too. Kyle's whole blaming Canada thing was a little weird, though, since when does he get angry like his mother? I remember him being more chill. Mr Mackey and Ms Conduct were great though, was having flashbacks of that other teacher with big tits, lol. Love this show, thanks Trey & Matt for keeping it alive so long :)

That ending..... :cry: :o

I mean....why Canada?!? What in the world did Canada do to deserve this?!? I LOVE CANADA!!! This almost infutrates like the U.S. as a terrorist nation!

I mean, some of it I liked (The Consilor Mackey/Miss Conduct...I hope that goes further lol). The "Strong" Woman thing though, I mean....will this mark the END of PC Principal?!? and the whole Terrance/Phillip old thing was just....weird and stupid. Yes they are old, but again....what's wrong with fart jokes?!? (or is this part of the sexual misconduct issues of today?) :?

I'm just very confused by this episode. Almost upset and more frustrated than anything. What has this world come to?!? :/
RTL: I love being a dick to people for no reason. It makes me feel better about how my mom smacks me around with a frozen T Bone steak.
