  • Cartman got his just desserts.

    Finally, an episode that proves you cannot always get away with what you do. This is an episode that actually improved compared to the episode that stared the Fall season 12 and actually followed one plot over two. Anyway, what made this episode great was that Cartman actually tries to 'weasel' his way out of the fight, from negotiating horribly (Eating underwear, honestly make me happy to see him degrade himself) to making himself appear innocent. I also love how the principal actually convinces Wendy to fight and compares Cartman to Cancer, truly a brilliant move that earns this episode in my top favs. Best part, the fight, while not truly epic as say a street fighter 4 battle, but gotta love how badly Cartman gets himself pwned by Wendy. As the saying goes (And seriously TV.com, i am quoting this, and hell isn't that bad of a curse word) "Hell hath no scorn like woman's." Course, I could be wrong with that one, but yeah, Cartman finally felt the stinging blow of a female.moreless
  • Worst episode EVER

    1.0
    This is by far the most utterly horrible episode I have ever endured. Wendy is by far the lamest and unfunny character in the show and it was a miserable idea for her to beat up the best character, Cartman. Cartman represents the spirit of the show; the political incorrectness, the freedom of speech. But this episode was just so gut-wrenchingly politically correct and cliched that I felt like I was watching something else. The writers must have been high. This is the most pitifull excuse for a South Park episode I have ever seen. It was more liberal than any episode of Family Guy. Don't watch unless you are a non-fan thats fond of politcal correctness.moreless
  • 1 of the best in Season 12

    9.0
    This is one of the best episode in season 12, it's funny and it teaches people not to laugh and mock about issues like cancer. Stan' girlfriend Wendy takes the main role in this episode which is refreshing for once and it's enjoyable seeing Cartmen finally suffer and getting a bad ending in this episode for all the bad things he'd done, which shows that you can't just get away with hurting others and it's definitely a nice change to see him lose for once. One thing I dislike about this episode is that Stan and Wendy suppose to be couples, yet they don't act like it. If you're a hardcore Cartman fan, then you wouldn't enjoy this episode.moreless
  • Finally an episode I throughly enjoyed.

    9.5
    Series 12 has not gone well for me, none of them felt to surpass the new high standard series 10 and 11 set, I have been consistantly left with a feeling of apathy and sometimes annoyance. But 'The breast cancer show' has, for me, finally delivered. It's a classic-style episode which doesn't take on more than it can handle in 20 minutes and has a strong sense of direction and a smooth delivery. This episode proves that the simple ideas work best, not the recently consistant choice of giving an opinion on a current issue through the South Park lens. It was very hard for this episode to go badly, not only because it brought back many charecters we dont see very often, but also ecause this episode does belong to Cartman! It was even better to see Cartmans charecter develop in this episode. His worming out of a fight with Wendy allowed us to see one of the more unexplored sides of Cartman which naturally was downright halirious! I can't fault this episode, maybe a few jokes could have been funnier, maybe it was a bit simple, but I loved it and it definatly the best episode of series 12 so far.moreless

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Snatch:




      The entire fight scene between Wendy and Cartman in the end of the episode, is exactly the same as when Brad Pitt fights in Snatch.

    • Dr. Pepper:




      During lunch when Wendy is staring down Cartman, he's drinking Dr. Pep-er, a play on the popular soft drink, Dr. Pepper.

    • There Will Be Blood:




      After Wendy wins the fight at the very end of the episode her last line as she walks off is, "I'm finished." She is referring to one of the most popular quotations from the famous ending of the 2007 hit movie There Will Be Blood.
