Pretty disappointing run. If next week's is as underwhelming as everything else in this run since Cartoon Wars Pt 1, then I think they might actually be "shrugging" after being screwed by CC for the third time. Which is a shame. They should walk, not compromise their art. I've definitely gotten the impression that they're holding back.

I honestly think they should start spending two weeks on every episode. That'll still give them their brinkmanship but also allow them to iron out some of the weak parts that have been spoiling obviously solid premises. (I loved the ideas of a smug alert, a cave-in/Manbearpig hunt and Towelie penning a Million Little Fibers, but they've all fallen short of their potential.)

Is Trey married yet? I swear nothing makes comedy go sour like wives and children.

Or is it possible that they're so used to doing whatever the audience doesn't expect that they're now so punk-rock that they're making their show not-as-funny because people expect it to be hilarious?

Man, that's hardcore.

However, because I hate to be only a Negative Nellie, the shots of Cartman bloated with gold had me cracking up real horrorshow. Same with the Cartman "greedy snake in the grass" scene.

Oh, and to the people who don't understand why they picked on Al Gore, read a newspaper or go to some online news sites. Not only does he have those movies coming out, but everywhere you look he's giving speeches warning us all that we're gonna die in like twenty minutes (and they say republicans are the alarmists).

( Sorry for my english, im Quebecer )

How Cartman and Kyle survive to their " go down " when they were swimming? They didn't show that part.

It's the Manbearpig? ( Stan still talk about Manbearpig at the end )

It's was a weird episode, maybe i will understand more in the French version

I didn't think it was such a great episode. I don't hate it, but I don't particularly like it either. I didn't think that Al Gore was funny. On a scale of 10, I'd give it 6.
Merry f*cking Christmas!

Al Gore is the perfect South Park target

I found the following link interesting, regarding why Trey might have a grudge against Al Gore:

http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/Re ... sp?ID=1180

For anyone not old enough to remember Tipper Gore's crusade against free speech in the 80s, Al took it up again back in 1999 when he still held a public office. Apparently it's okay to tell everyone their children are going to die soon if they don't go see your movie, so long as you don't offend anyone's "christian values".

I'm pretty sure that M&T aren't rooting for the jesus freaks in office now. Al Gore is a great target, because he's such a hypocrite. So called "liberal" who wants to wipe his ass with the Bill of Rights. I'm guessing they don't go after the Republicans as much because, as repugnant as some of their views are, they wear them on their sleeve. They only goof up when they get busted with hookers or turn out to be gay.

I know its old news, but I still can't get over how the VP in a very popular two-term administration couldn't beat the son of an unpopular one-termer by a landslide. Forget about Florida, only a total douche-bag couldn't have won that one without trying.

Al Gore was Clinton's life insurance policy; nothing more. I'm sure that's why he was chosen. The guy is so desperate to be president he'll do anything to get people's attention. I don't think the timing of his "movies" are a coincidence. Despite what he says now, I'm sure he wants to run in '08.

Gore represents everything that is wrong with the Democratic Party. They're politically liberal when no one else in America is and socially conservative when no other party has the balls to stand up against christian moral hypocracy. The Democrats are useless and will probably go the way of the Whigs.

I personally like the more overtly political satire of recent seasons and loved the fact that the whole episode was a put-down of Gore. I guess I'm a little biased though.

I remember that crap with Tipper Gore and the PMRC (Parents Music Resource Center). A bunch of dumb Washington wives that had nothing better to do than screw with peoples freedom of speech and expression. They were the reason that those "Parental Advisory" labels were put on records. It especially sucked if you were a young metalhead living in a redneck town like mine.

I thought Manbearpig would come up too. That was why I was dissappointed. I liked the episode though. Al Gore was funny was hell even though I don't know much about him.

Hah, "That's My Bush" was awesome. Shame they didn't make more episodes, most likely because of 9/11.


I may be on the wrong, but I tought that they stopped doing TMB because of the high cost (they couldn't afford it?) and it was just a coincidence that 9/11 followed. Someone care to shine some light on this issue.

If Al Gore really is on this war against free speech, then he deserved all the mocking. It seems that in partisian politics U.S.A. there's no party that defends free speech completely - either they'll let you mock P.C.ness, or conservatives values. Never both.

On a side-note, this episode kind of reminded me of a Brazilian show featuring the chupacabra - there was a possibility that a politician was dressing up like it to attract tourinsts to the city. The scene where Al Gore dresses up as manbearpig and walks in the darkness is a lot like the scene on the show where the Chupacabra appears. Weird coincidence...

Just finished downloading and watching it. It was pretty mediocre to me. I would say it's the 4th best out of the 6th this run. The Fake treasure part was funny. They could have made this episode better. All in all not bad

That's the greatest line I've heard all week.
