    Well done continuation of the multi-episode. But not enough great new gags were introduced.



    So why a 9? Hard to describe, really. It was just a really good episode. Or superb, as the rating would describe.

    Great episode. Game of thrones and it's liberal, gay, feminist new world order penis fest needs to be made fun of.

    No central, strong, heroic, principled protagonist to relate to, and when there is one they get killed off. it's a cynical celebration of torture porn and depravity, a celebration of evil.

    The butt-hurt fanboys it seems can't handle it when their precious GOT gets satirised via the obvious and accurate observation that there's an over abundance of penis shots and gay sex scenes.moreless

    what i liked- George . Martin, the newscasters' being revealed as incestual, the ending, another Garden of Betrayal Scene.



  • weak episode... but it's piggy in the middle

    As the reviews stated below, the wiener joke just falls flat on its face. There's so much material to make fun of, why make stuff up? As far as I can recall, there was no gay wiener, and very few flaccid straight wiener. And really, compared to the 60 or so boobs and vagina shots... are we really that gayphobic?



    Beyond that joke though (which they really kept emphasizing) it was an... OK episode. The garden scene was funny, and so was Kenny as the princess. The president of Sony was humorous as well.



    The problem is this looks like one of south parks classic 3 episode arc story lines. But if you don't watch all these together, the middle one really fizzes out, having neither a beginning nor an end.



    I'll give this a episode a generous 7 out of ten. Not the worst out of this season but definitely not the best.moreless

    I agree with the review below mine. The show could have done much more biting satire. It seems they have toned down the scathing, insults, celebrity lampoons and truily controversial subjects. When you think as far back (and this is a LONG time ago now to the infamous Chicken

    n show is just so TAME now. . It was an enjoyable yet not hilarious episode. I also agree they did not hit hard enough making fun of GOT and the shows *there are many now' just like it.



    I don;t know WHY they put TIMMY in the show anymore. He actually has not said "TIMMY" in over 2 years. They stopped doing Timmy and Jimmy episodes

    of those were the funniest in the entire series (Cripple Fight example. Cartman did nothing truly offensive or even an OMG Cartman moment all season. Too many complaints? too many hassles, lawsuits, ,

    meetings with COmedy Central knows. But the BITE is missing.moreless
