Hahahaa, oh my god, this episode was insane, good insane. One of the weirdest South Park episodes.

When was the last time we saw the lunch line? I also loved Randy's "Hello there children".
Favorite Character: Jimmy
Favorite Episode: Krazy Kripples

That's gotta be the first dovetail in television history that involved a hand job. Very nice.

This episode was dripping with what has to be self-referential jokes given the Guys own martial status. Trey's drawing material from his own life I have a feeling.

Our season finale was lacking in content from the boys, but Fatass as Gordon Ramsey was, like I said before, old school funny.

The Shake Weight story avoided getting old when it morphed into an extra-marital affair for Sharon. Fairly straighforward dick joke did the job nicely. My fears about potential coasting this week were somewhat true, but there was enough there.
Good luck with the musical, boys.

Nothing like a good old-fashioned! :D
I love that Sharon got a real part in the episode. The sex reference, shake weight, food porn, all too good to be true. As for my prediction, well, it was sort of correct and Stan did get sort of screwed in the end. Hearing your parents having sexual acts together is a little gross... wait its more then a little, I mean come on, you live with them. Easy 10/10 to close out the season. I rate this season a 8/10, only because of lacking laughter. My heart rates it a 10/10. Speaking of heart rates, Sharon was having a good workout with the shake weight. When I get married I'm definitely getting my wife one of those.

I didn't really like this episode. Maybe it would have been funnier if I didn't feel like I'd heard all the jokes before. Especially the Shake Weight joke. One joke that's been around for a while that was dragged out for a whole episode... Ugh.

Here, if you haven't seen it before, is a Saturday Night Live clip from... uh, was it last spring? Anyway, it makes fun of the Shake Weight and does a pretty good job of it, too. Which is pathetic; Saturday Night Live isn't really funny to me anymore and I mostly just watch it out of tradition.

God, a joke South Park drags out for an episode isn't even funny to me the first time they bring it up because I already got a kick out of said joke from SNL. SNL! What's wrong with the world?

What a mess of an episode. Randy becoming the chef of the elementary school could've hade some sort of potential, but this..

A good portion of the episode was a one off joke that we've all seen before, and sort of funny the first time, but infuriating the sixtieth time. (this seems to be a pattern lately... I guess writing a full 22 minute show must be hard)

Randy's plot really never took off, and was also full of mostly just one joke...

This is also probably the first time I've actually been BORED during an episode. Even in the episodes that aren't that great, they are at least entertaining.

I had to watch this one again. This stood out like, well a shake weight.

I think the theme song to "Cafeteria Fraiche" with Randy singing is still stuck in my head.

I really liked this one. After 3 weeks nonstop Coon/Mysterion we finally have something that was different, funny, and completely relevant to today's world.
Stan and Kyle :)

I see a lot of pros and cons in this episode...so lets digest.

Pro:

- Cartman as Gordon Ramsey :lol:
- I liked the commercials. T&P with Progressive and the Corona light. Very ingenious.
- The sexual ideas were all abound. I loved the Shakeweight and how it talked to you.
- I liked the idea of Randy taking up the role as a chef and trying to become a celebrity about it. Classic.
- Sharon's role and the ending...OMG! :o


Con:

-The Shakeweight repeating itself got annoying FAST!!
- Randy. The entire section of him trying to become a chef and obviously having semen/masterbation issues :roll: It was kinda just over the top a little?
- I do wish that there was a bit more from someone like Kyle in this episode, as well as the idea that Stan's part could have been expanded as well.

Overall, the shakeweight and the Food Network are what people are going to remember from this episode...but again, it was a bit annoying on the SW. The food network stuff was good, and Randy as "Chef" made it even better, but there were also just too many sexual innuendos in this episode. So I rate this one modestly.

7.8/10
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.

One thing that I think made this episode perfect for me is, one I don't have the Food Network, but understand its entirety. Two, I've seen the shake weight joke once on SNL, but that was with flashlights and maybe not the same one. So really I've never seen an infomercial of it either, but from seeing the product in stores I always wondered. When you've seen a joke before it becomes less funny next time, like watching the same episode of South Park five times in a row. It can only be funny if you haven't seen the jokes before. Then again, some jokes never get old so... Next, what made it a real kick was the marriage idea of the Shake weight. I like the idea of the story of the parent's marriage in shambles and not being all perfect, fixed at the end. Those kind of movies were always great. So for those who haven't seen the episode, if you like dick jokes, haven't really seen the shake weight and don't care what really happens, then this episode is perfect for you!
Or maybe I'm wrong and you will hate me for the rest of your life.

I probably just shouldn't comment on this episode anymore, because I'm going to do nothing but bitch about the Shake Weight.

But MAN, it's not like it was even new to joke about the Shake Weight by the time SNL got to it! It's like some time ago M&T just stuck that into the pile of ideas to use when they run out!

... yeah, I think I'm going to just leave now before I get too repetitive. Assuming I'm not already too repetitive.

South Park still has something left in the tank. Great episode.

I'm pretty sad that this season ended with Randy, He's such an assh*le, i'm seriouslah. Poor Stan, Having to have a father like that. :( Though I liked everything that didn't have Randy, like the shake-weight and how super pissed off the kids were getting, and Cartman as Gordon Ramsay :cartmanlaugh:

Randy's obsession with cooking was funny, but Sharon's affair with the Shake Weight had me rolling. :cartmanlaugh:

The ShakeWeight really got annoying after the first one or two jokes.

But that aside, I loved this episode. I had some laughs, we got to see more of the kids, and it really hit home for me because I'm very familiar with Gordon Ramsay and his shows "Hell's Kitchen" and "Kitchen Nightmares". I even saw an episode of "Hell's Kitchen" this morning before I went to work. And Cartman playing the part of Gordon Ramsay instead of Gordon himself was friggin' awesome. It has so much of the stuff I loved about the old episodes, so I'm really thrilled this episode came out the way it did...even if the ShakeWeight took up more air space than it should have.

It also reminded me of how Randy is a lot like my dad in this episode. My dad is an avid cook. I've never had the same meal more than once when he cooks. He never messes up and I've never once had anything I didn't like. He uses ingredients most people haven't even heard of, and he has like 100 cookbooks. He's the best and most enthusiastic food lover I know, which is ironic given that he lost his sense of taste and smell after a bicycle crash four years ago. He even built his own outdoor grilling kitchen in his backyard and remodeled his house's kitchen entirely from scratch.

Plus my dad has short black hair and a mustache, and tends to use phrases like "awww, yeah!" and "hell yes!" when cooking passionately. It's almost frightening.
