  • superb

    All the Obama supporters of South Park party hard, while all the McCain supports are very sad. Meanwhile, Obama is really a jewel thief, who only wanted into office so him and the others (Michelle Obama, Sarah Palin, McCain) could pull off the greatest heist ever. Will they succeed?

    Good episode, the scenes of the people partying in South Park were all funny. The main plot was kind of boring but did have some good parts, like Ike working for Obama. Overall it was pretty good of an episode, albeit kind of boring in some parts. Final grade for this episode from me is a B+moreless
  • Alright Obama's President!

    Alright Obama's President! and theirs an episode of him becoming President and everyone in South park is going crazy and making a huge block Party. Then Obama and Mcane are joining forces to rob a stone thats worth millions of dollars and Freakin' Randy is all drunk and thinks nothing is going to happen to him and Swears to his Boss. Then Kyle and Stan try to take Ike to the doctor because he did suside and fell in to a 5 feet drop. Then Obama and Mcane got the stone and Ike is working with then he must be a crimal-master mind to do the job.moreless
  • An OK episode after a streak of garbage.

    Season 12 has to be the worst South Park season. It's had the most boring, lazily written episodes I've seen from this show. It has been atrocious. This episode, on the other hand, not so bad. It's actually pretty cool. In the beginning the writers capture the spirit of America during Obama's win (Obama supporters thinking everything's gonna be fixed magically, McCain supporters thinking it's the end of the world.). It's pretty funny, then they throw a pretty good Ocean's 11-13 parody about Obama and other politicians stealing a diamond from the Natural History Museum. All and all, it's one of the best from this season (That's not saying much) and it provides some entertainment. If something else is on, by all means watch it, but if you have nothing better to do, then yeah, watch this. It's not as bad as the others.moreless
  • a great episode among a group of bad south park episode

    Very good. very very good. Firstly, it really is amazing how they did this episode and the name says it all it was literally about last night. They did most of it the night before it aired and it didn't suck. bravo. It was nice seeing obama and mccain being friends and i liked the spoof of the oceans 11 type of thing. Seeing sarah palin faking being an idiot (least believable part) was funny. I barely have anything to complain about. It was really great. A brilliant masterpiece. Maybe just maybe south park will have a good rest of the season. "boom baby!"moreless
  • awkward and confusing.... but a terrific episode with some great scenes.

    i thought about last night was pretty confusing and muddled. But overall the whole episode was a huge hit for me. i never even thought T&M would do a story about obama and others heist scene for the hope diamond ! absolutely unique. And it was much more setted up well than family guy s heist episode oceans 3 and a half, where the story was not setted well up. anyway cartman did not have really a part to this episode,, but it shows that even without cartman, the story can be still fantastic and humor will be hilarious.About last night hit the full 10 potential for me.

    overall, highly recommended.moreless

  • NOTES (4)

    • Air Tahiti was featured in this episode. However it carries a different logo, aircraft type and its livery, compared to the real world.

      It also appears that the airline flies to Washington DC (where this episode is set), which the real world airline does not serve.

    • International airdates:
      Latin America: June 29, 2009 on MTV Latinoamerica.

    • This episode aired just 23 hours after it was announced that Barack Obama was the winner of the 2008 United States Presidential election. In fact, the episode's opening speech wasn't completed until the morning the episode aired.

    • Kenny does not appear in this episode.


    • Aliens:

      When the McCain supporters are reacting to his loss, Mr. Mackey quotes Bill Paxton's classic line from the 1986 film, Aliens.

      Hudson: That's it man, game over man, game over!

    • Ocean's Eleven:

      The whole theme about the election being a cover up for a large-scale theft is a reference to the Ocean's Eleven series of films.

    • Twilight Zone Episode:

      When we see some McCain supporters rioting for a place in a bunker built by Butter's dad, is a reference of the classic "Twilight Zone" episode "The Shelter"
