    that means Cartman killed his Own Father that's Bada#s and the war finlly ended and cartman is upset that he is half Ginger maybe that's why people make fun of Cartmanmoreless
  • One of the best episodes ever, written chiefly for fans.

    It is easy to get caught up in censorship surrounding this episode (and episode 200). Recently, and quite accidentally, I found out where one of the writers lives. Like most of us, comic writers are not surrounded by bodyguards 24-7, and considerations must be made for the safety of their surrounding families (if not their individual selves). How important is it really to sacrifice our own lives (and others) in lieu of a joke for which a moron is likely commit his own for the sake of revenge; it isn't so much an issue of freedom as one of pragmatics. This being stated, the revised 'censored' version purposefully went over the top so as to parody the level of censorship committed to this trivial issue, and is quite funny. What ultimately makes this episode so good are the throwback references to earlier episodes. This is for the fans. For example, the ending is far funnier when the fan viewer makes an erroneous mental link with a closing statement made by Stan (a loose reference connecting Season 11, Episodes 10, 11, and 12), but are then floored with a Season 9, Episode 13 reference. The point being, the brief final joke derives the most humor for the viewer who has lived through (watching) all of the above mentioned episodes. If one has watched South Park consistently, this episode is one of the best.moreless
  • perfect

    south park needs to find a way to make both the ginger population, and the angry celebs, happy. and cartman learns the shocking truth of who his father really is (or rather.... was).

    great conclusion to part one of the 200th episode. lot of referenes and jokes to past episodes, and a unique plot in its own. nothing i did not really dislike or anything, and so because of all of this, my final grade for "201" is going to be an A+, which i think is more than fair. Well done South Park. Here's to more episodes in the future!moreless
  • Don't be mad at South Park for censorship

    For all of you out there who are mad about the censorship, don't be mad at south park. The original episode that was created had very little censoring. Because of threats by a radical muslim group comedy central added most of the bleeps before the original airing. Also, they will not allow the episode to be shown on the south park website.

    As for the actual episode review though, I thought it was great, it was a great flashback of all the old characters, wrapped up the story of the previous episode, and had a hilarious ending with Tom Cruise.moreless
  • what happened here?? they censored the whole thing...

    on the "i learned something today" scene at the end, everything got bleeped out, and it looked like it was on purpose.. what a horrible way to do it.. were they trying to prove that not being able to make fun of muhammed is ridiculous? atleast they got that right..

    what really happened to barbara strai* *however you spell her\its name*, she was singing and then she was gone?? i was really expecting muhammed with his power of flame to come through..

    this might be the worst south park episode ever, and thats just because beeps really pisses me off, even more than gingers ;)moreless

    • The Killing Joke: The scene where Cartman is led through the carnival-like setting devised by Scott, it is an homage to the fantastic graphic novel Batman: The Killing Joke by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland.
