South Park New Season!

Anyone watched it? I thought the whole Indiana Jones rape thing was hilarious, didn't care much for Cartman's chinese invasion except for Butters shooting everyone in the crotch

Butters rules.

Did you pick up on the rape scenes?
Not sure if the first was supposed to parody anything, but the 2nd was The Accused, and the 3rd was Deliverance.

The squeal like a pig one...Ned Beatty's finest performance.

One of the worst SP episodes of all time.

It's not a new season...it's part 2 of season 12, which started in the spring.

Anyway, the episode was two plots that could have been full episodes of their own crammed together and stifled. Meh, it's probably for the best that they weren't made into their own episodes...they just seemed like 2-3 jokes repeated for 10 minutes anyway. It was disappointing.

Season 11 was actually very good overall. I hope Trey Parker and Matt Stone get out of this slump, and fast.

Don't really care that much about it, to be honest.
Maybe that's buoyed by lukewarm reviews, whatever.
I worship the original trilogy. Especially the 1st and 3rd.
The 1st (Raiders)is IMO, the best popcorn movie ever.
End of story.

The Indy rape idea on SP, is hilarious.
Redundant of previous episodes? Ok, maybe but funny.
There is also a slightly amusing China flavor going on.

You seem to, at the very least be a pseudo film buff.
What would make this anywhere near one of their worst episodes, Lance?
This opinion baffles me. Could you explain? If you want.

I don't mean disrespect.
You actually purport yourself as a film buff, rather than a average hack like me. Seems, you might have a technical explanation we maybe could all handle.

That's the problem with it though. It's an idea, and as you say, not even a particularly original one. This episode consisted of nothing but two comedic ideas. 1. Literalize the "rape" of the move. 2. Cartman chinese parnoia. Two solid building blocks for a classic SP yarn. Unfortunately they failed to develop these even slightly beyond that basic concept. No arc, nothing. And not only to do they fail to develop those ideas in the slightest, but the episode didn't even have any real jokes. The most successful SP episodes follow a very proven formula. Equal parts straight satire and absurd humor. The writing on the show has been consistently leaning further towards the satire-only side of the spectrum and it suffers significantly.

They've been pretty smart, and fairly high-concept of late, but they seem to be losing sight of what actually makes their idea funny. This was a prime example of that failure in my eyes. Not nearly as bad as the Britney Spears episode from earlier in the season, but not a whole lot better either.

season 13 is on now

the jonas brothers one was ok
the coon one was rubbish
but the 3rd one on the economy was pretty good

But not a patch on Season 11 and 12 which were amazing

I actually think season 13 is miles ahead of where season 12 was at this point. Margaritaville alone is more inspired and clever than pretty much anything from last season, and there hasn't been any worthless crap like Britney's New Look yet.

yea but cartman getting aids is one of the funniest things i have seen

"i'm not just positive about it, I'm HIV positive about it"

And overlogging?



I agree margaritaville was a classic

bit the coon one was dull

Jonas bros was funny due to micky mouse and kenny dying

i am working my way backwards now - s9 was the first one i really got into, just filling the gaps and then going back all the way to season 1
