  • I wish I could give this episode a zero.

    1.0
    This is the worst episode of South Park I have ever seen. It was so terrible. Anything that made the show funny in the past is completely gone. There is no originality in the show at all anymore. Every single second is building up to a ridiculous social commentary, or they make an entire episode parodying an already existing TV show. It's unbelievable how anyone could have possibly found this episode good. The only funny thing was the voice of the one kid who was trying to read for the morning announcements. Everything Cartman did was stupid. Everything he said about Wendy was stupid. The entire 5 minute scene in the beginning of the episode where the morning announcements kid gets murdered was stupid. Maybe it's time Matt Stone and Trey Parker threw in the towel. Each season is getting worse and worse as it goes on. It's unwatchable at this point.moreless
  • Sticking it to uber conservative radio/tv The south park way.

    9.0
    "Just becuase somebody has a microphone and a few books doesn't mean they know what they're talking about"



    I loved this shot at Uber Conservative radio/TV. If you've ever had to endure somebody like Michael Savage you'll totally get this episode. While the obvious target was Glenn Beck. I could see a bit of Michael savage here.



    It's also another chapter in the fued between Wendy and Cartman and Wendy does again get the better of Cartman even though he still ultimately won. The Smurf bit was boggling and WAH? But the Avatar thing was funny as anything and a good punchline.



    Over all it was one of the better episodes doing good parody of uber conservatives which is much needed...they don't realize how stupid they are. (And I lean to the right) Another win for South Park.moreless
  • Some episode this Why they bought up the Smufs thats an old cartoon

    8.0
    After watching this episode this is my thoughts

    Cartman battles Wendy

    It's like Cartman is getting back at Wendy for beating him up in season 12



    Cartman nowreads the morning announcements over the intercom at South Park Elementary and blames student body president Wendy Testaburger (Since when was when was Wendy student body president)

    Isn't this base on how president barack obama doing as president or something cause I know I see this before.



    Cartman befriends the Smufs I love the Smufs but how they got the idea to bring them up.



    Avatar I not talking about airbending Avatar but there is going to be a real life movie of it. I don't get why Cartman got mad. they should bought up Transfomers 2moreless
  • classic cartman

    8.5
    At the begining of the episode the kid who does the school anouncements is brutally murdered. Cartman takes over and turns the anouncements in something similar to the glen beck show.He stars a smear campaign against the class president wendy. He convinces studnets that she is ruining the school and hates smurfs.There is a five minute clip dances with wolves tyle of how cartman lived with the smurfs and wendy bulldozed their village for smurfberries.Wendy turns it back on cartman and resigns as class president making cartman presidnet who he soon finds out has no power.Wendy sells the dances with smurfs story as avatar.



    I like this episode but the smurf part made it unfocused not a classic episode but good for a new episode.moreless
  • Even though I hate Wendy,she fits in this episode

    10
    Okay,this episode was so hirlarilous!Some Ginger kid gets mistaken from a guy who thinks he made out with his wife and gets shot,which was a scene I couldn't stop watching and laughed my head out of.So now,Cartman goes on the announcements and makes fun of Wendy on every single announcement.The funniest thing about it is that Dances with Smurfs movie.It was so hirailous,but a rip off of Avatar.I really loved the ending,it was so funny that I couldn't stop laughing.Wendy made a book that was based on the movie Cartman made,and now that's how Avatar was made.Well,the new Wendy may suck,but this episode and Breast Cancer Show Ever were her best.Best episode of Season 13 so far.moreless

    • Casey Miller: The sun is up, and the birds are chirping. I'm Casey Miller, and these, are the morning announcements. I have a letter from second grade student Brian Fowner. Brian writes, Dear Casey: "Why is our school president such a fat, stupid dickhead? My desk is broken, and so far Eric Cartman has done nothing about it. Will you please let that walking bowl of anus pus know that we are not happy?" Well Brian, I couldn't agree more. Our asshole president is a fat, smelly, douchebag milkshake.
