I only saw up too the first commercial, but I'm very "0_o" about where M&T are going with there characters. I mean last episode was shocking enough(Stan pulling a gun on Kyles head), but now Butters was being forced to smoke(where the hell did cartman get those cigarettes?) and IKE of all people had sex. I was hoping it would be someone at least old enough too know what sex was.
And in the first half of season 10, Kyle had acid. Sure, these are THERE characters and not mine and they can do whatever they want with them, but they are only 8/9 years old. Doesn't anybody think they're going too far by making them so many "adult" things?
Bah, maybe I'm just thinking too hard on it, like I said, I didn't even see the whole episode(could't stay up anylonger). :cry:
never seen the dog show but didn't have to - Cartman, hilarious
Is it me or does it seem their actually putting some time and effort into this season
like, it actually has some "Simpsons" substance - it's great
better one liners and random expressions that'll stick with you for a while
after the episode the advertisement was - GO TO THE SOUTH PARK FORUM!!!
anywayz, thought the episode was NIIIIIIIIIIICCCCCCCCE, bra, go with Christ!
I think they did have to downplay Stan. If they showed *more* Stan, it would be impossible to explain why he wasn't helping. He did looked stunned and upset, that's about all he could do.
I don't think we'll be seeing Leroy, Earl, or Beth again. They're entirely Dawg-centric and I don't think Cartman is still going to be hall monitor next week. Just as well because I find Beth a little disturbing: luckily Cartmans's ideas about sex are still a bit primitive and seem to involve pee, i.e., still hasn't a clue. Also yet another time Cartman has gotten religion.
Speaking of disturbing. . . .
I thought the choice of Ike as the student was both the most messed-up and one of the funniest things I've ever seen. I *am* a teacher (in college) and I have absolutely zero tolerance for this sort of behavior. There's always some kind of excuse and Matt and Trey rang changes on them all. Picking Ike made it so outrageous that it all sounded ridiculous (Kyle: "He's a little young for you, don't you think????") but also pulled out of what we already know about Ike--he's intellectually well ahead of his age group, but he's still a baby. I was kind of pleased to see Foley and Gibson get nailed, too.
And Butters: poor thing, just having a cheerful little whiz and suddenly Cartman crashes in and wrecks his life. And then he's the cameraman. Figures. Some would say that if Beth is Dawg's bitch , Butters is Cartman's.
Favorite quote so far: "Ike, you need to have a life, have fun, and *then* ruin it by having a serious relationship." Word.
Well, next week, I guess it's back to normal, whatever that is.
but now Butters was being forced to smoke(where the hell did cartman get those cigarettes?)
That... isn't that new a concept. Huey Lewy and Dewy were beat up and forced to smoke by their Uncle Donald in one of the old OLD disney cartoons. You know.. back in the days when freedom of expression was still a respected concept.
Ike having sex... dude it was funny because he was the youngest.
Figures. Some would say that if Beth is Dawg's bitch , Butters is Cartman's.
XDDDDDD Hahahah... poor guy.

Ugh, don't remind me.
All the points you guys are bringing up; the decharacterization, the adult activities, the satirization, have all be subjects of lengthy debates on this board. You can search through any of the old official episode threads to find them.
That episode would have been absolutely classic and near flawless if the teacher had been expressing her love for Ike, while he didn't have a clue what was going on and made his usual comments like "I go poopies". But Ike will probably never be funny again to me. The fact that he willingly had sex with his teacher has made that quite clear.
Good, but not overwhelmingly good. Cartman the Dawwg storyline was overwhelmingly good, but the Ike story just didn't have the gravitas that I expected. I think it was too radical a departure from Ike's character for my tastes.
Beth Cartman's Bitch and the word "nice" were the co-MVPs of the episode.
I also felt like the ending fell flat, no pun intended. I figure they chose Ike because his character best embodies innocence, but there might have been more comedic value with Butters instead of Ike. I realize that Garrison is Butters teacher, so maybe that contributed to their decision.
The episode was a topical overload--but still better than pretty much anything else on the shit-tube.
