I really hate to be in the minority here, but I couldn't stand it. I wouldn't watch it again unless it were the only thing on T.V.

My reasoning for my verdict stems from pretty much what makes every newer episode too similar to the last. Smart kids, stupid adults, and the same joke exaggerated 5,000 times. This time, though, with toilet humor, which I think is only funny in moderation.

I'm glad Kenny had some parts, though.

Meh. I'd give it a 5/10.

I do understand most people's thoughts on why they liked it, but I kept waiting to laugh, and kept waiting.

And kept waiting.

I was expecting something to go wrong in the hunting grounds scene, like Kenny getting shot by someone instead of Sarah Jessica...

However, he did get "killed" in the videogame they were playing, as Cartman announced.

Have you heard that MnT interview from NPR that both nall and Bug mentioned in other threads? It explains the reason for the toilet humor. It is a very interesting listen (that's right - radio which means no video).

Here is the link: It is about 40 minutes long:

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/stor ... =124052961

EDIT:

This show seems to go back to it's roots. I liked it. And after listening to the NPR radio link, the part where MnT talk about analogue and what they can do now with digital where they spoke about how they make their voices, I noticed Butter's voice was a little different on the Today show based on if the camera angle was Butters on TV as seen on TODAY, or an angle of Butters as seen in Butter's house. That is very cool the way they do that.

The pre-air thread was full of distractions; that shot of Randy with his wheelbarrow wasn't even in the episode, and that line of Butter's in the preview clip of "Will Jesus still love me?" didn't even make it into the show.

Would have like to see more of Mr. Garrison, though, and what was going on in the class after the whole class read "The Catcher In The Rye."

So, I'm on the West Coast here, and when I tried to watch the episode online, it cut off after fifteen minutes. Did this happen to anyone else?

Yes. There were only 2 Acts; and the running time showed: 15:57. Also, the commercials froze. I tried the episode player several times and the same thing happened. But about 10 minutes ago I tried again, and all three Acts are there. The running time is now 21:43. Whatever the site bug was, it's fixed now :)

However, under "Tags" it still shows last week's tags: Sex AddictionWeekaddictionTiger Woodssex addicts.

The whole idea that the book was so outrageous that everyone puked didnt quite ring true to me. They kind of pointed out the fact that with the internet (overlogging) that only the most outrageous things now give us what used to be normal reactions. Hence the brazilian fart porn and asian puking girls fetishes of Randy. It just seems that in todays society people arent shocked by any type of content. That whatever we read in a book is nothing compared to the gruesome videos and hardcore porn that is on the internet.

P.S. I didnt know Butters was part black. Hence his fascination with Kim Kardashian. But it was pretty hilarious when the idiot went on a rampage at the end.

Also I will put my own meaning into this episode: could it be that matt and trey are making a social commentary how all of the liberals are trying to blame Glenn Beck for every racist or violent act that is perpetrated by a white person nowadays. :D

Nah, MnT are equal opportunity social commentary makers.

I love the critique of rhetoric in this episode. People searching for truth and meaning behind words written in a book that may or may not actually exist. We see this phenomenon in our culture with increasing regularity with the increased usage of text messaging, instant messaging, and email. When people read a text they often try to apply a "voice" to it. This is what often leads to peoples somewhat misguided interpretation of what they read. I love how the boys in this episode insist there is nothing to the book other than disgusting imagery, yet people still seem to find a deeper meaning to it, and it is all highly relative, based on the individual reader's disposition and dissonance. Sometimes, words on a page are nothing more than just words on a page. Well done Matt and Trey, another great episode.

I don't like how in the newer episodes they're always traveling all over the place, talking to celebrities, etc.

I liked it when they stayed in South Park most of the episode, asking advice/finding solutions to their problems in their home town or from some minority person.

Like in this episode, they were barely in school, instead they were out in some courtroom, in the woods, and with Sarah Jessica Parker. I like it when as many original South Park characters are involved with the boys, not them by themselves all the time - if that makes sense.


Good episode nonetheless.

Holy crap, that was funny. :lol:
This thing went through a lot of changed from pre to post didn't it? I'm still reeling from the fact that I mentioned the Kardashians in passing in the Prod. Blog, and they show up harpooned... lampooned in the ep. I must be psychic. (ha) I didn't expect to see them get blown the damn away, but I really should've seen it coming.
SJP was hilarious. Trey was right, when characters are small and in the background doing random stuff, it's funny. I kept expecting to see her get shot when she was in the woods.
The vomiting got to be a little old by the time the Today show scene rolled around. Especially when they milked it the way they did. I hate to say this, but it almost feels like they put in as much vomiting as they could to fill time from stuff that got cut.

I felt a little disappointed with this episode, like I was waiting for something else to happen. It would have been interesting if Butters had actually met the Kardashians (they are so irritating!). I kept hoping they would say something opposite about SJP, like about how sweet she seems, but it just ended with she's ugly. :(

I listened to this. They're both just so cute! (Matt's super cute voice :D) When she was playing clips from "Trapped in the Closet" I kept hoping there would be something from R.Kelly's song. It's great when he yells, "and I pulled out my gun!!" and everyone freaks out. :D
