Yeah, I think I'm gonna have to agree with you on that one. I gotta say, Cartman injecting that needle into his arm and then into Kyle's mouth has got to be one of the most f*cked up things they've ever done on South Park.
And about the HIV positive joke, it was funny at first in a corny kinda way, but then it started getting annoying, until Kyle finally called Cartman out about it. "This isn't funny, so shut the f*ck up."
I think I laughed the most during the scene when Kyle is kicking Cartman's ass and Mr. Mackey steps in. His classic line worked perfectly there. "Break it up, mmkay!!" I dunno, I just thought it was really funny. XD
Oh, and about the new intro, I like the fact that they compiled many episodes throughout the series into it. And the boys popping up from the sides is kinda cute, but I'm definitely gonna miss the whole them being built with construction paper thing.
I think the HIV positive joke, it got really funny at the end imo. I think giving Kyle AIDs is WAY worse than killing that kids parents. And I also enjoyed the new intro, I'm not a fan of the music to the song though, haven't been since last season. Oh ya and I think sooner or later Cartman is going to deal with a "bisexual" faze or something. I don't think they will make him gay, but they keep hinting at him liking both girls and being interested in guys.
Because most of the humour was in the form of geeky in-jokes for fans, that the avarage joe would never understand. You need a strong understanding of the Kyle Cartman dynamic and of Butters to get the joke. This leaves the episode in scarilly simmilar teriroty to the latter Simpsons episodes, which fall. prey to comic-book guy levels of geekery.
It also leaves the jokes quite dispersed. The mock-drama thing didn't really work, and it was obvious from the start that money would be the cure for aids.
Kyle's outbursts were somewhat predictable and it altogether seemed like one long joke with a lame-ish punch line, because the punch like (money cures aids) has been said before so many times.
Some great moments redeem it, such as Mackey's tattle tale thing (i hate how skools try to punish both sides in EVERYTHING ) and the "aids is so retro" thing but the episode was, as cartman would say, rather WEEEEAAAAAK.
But roll on the second episode.

Well everyone knows that only AIDS kills AIDS.
Oh, I almost forgot to comment on the Yimmy Buffay thing. It was stupid early on, but I was giggling at "cureburger".
Everybody seemed out of character, the jokes nor the plot were at all clever.
The Eric Kyle dynamic seemed weird to me.
Eric seemed too weak and timid when kyle started breaking his stuff. I just didn't get that?
The "I'm HIV positive" line is actually really old. I remember kids using that line years ago..
I do agree with a previous poster who said the bar has been raised really high for this show so I guess i should expect a let down every now and then.
I will say this though, I didn't like the "more crap" episode the first time either but actually found it very funny after watching it a couple more times..
This episode had the feel of the late 90's episodes...very much so. Anybody agree?
Also, whats the geeky humor a few posters mentioned, that most people wont get? Could anybody point out some examples?
I thought it was...okay. It did get a few laughs out of me, like the FIRST time Cartman said "I'm HIV positive." The second time he said it, I found it annoying. The third time, when Kyle gets angry with him for it was funny NOT for the joke, but because Cartman was being so deadpan about it.
I actually did appreciate the drama element. Kyle's intensity was cool to see. I found Stan's dealing with Kyle's laughter hilarious as he explains it to Cartman..."ironic you know, because you're always such a dick and stuff." The blatant acknowledgment that Cartman is an a-hole in such a casual way was funny to me.
Nothing about Jimmy Buffet was funny whatsoever. The whole "these two lovers" line was so obvious it couldn't be funny.
My overall opinion is that this episode is below average, but not as bad as some of the aforementioned worst eps.
I know Jimmy Buffet's guitar players, they are my roommates uncles. It would have been cool to see them actually designed after the real people.
i was disappointed with the ep.
i just dont find AIDS a funny topic, even when south park do it (except in jared had AIDES )
although it i found some of it funny, i would hope that the season gets better, with more light heartedness.
ps. even though cartman is a dick, i hated kyle fore his reaction to cartmans disease, i thought it was way out of line
pps i still hate kyle after that ep, he has to be extremely funny in next ep
The butters/cartman interaction was the best point in the show. Kyle was just a grumpy guts all the way in, it was quite funny to see them ripping on themselves, but they do it too much.
Anyone noticed Matt and Trey's fascination with AIDS? This is like the fourth episode they've done with it as a central theme, and they've done about five songs about it in all their productions...
Probably my least favorite episode was Pancake Head and Butter Face, next would be Awesome-O
That shows a difference in humour between me and you. Those are some of my faves there But the aids episode should NEVER be compaired to them, mmmkay?
I wouldn't call it that broken that i'd never watch it again (unlike Jackovasaurus) but i might leave it for a few years before returning. Hope they don't overplay it like they do other sh*t episodes
