    A whole year to prepare for the premier and this is what they come up with? It started out with potential: People post every little thought they have on the internet, yet they get upset when the government listens in to their phone calls. The comparison is obviously flawed (private conversations are not the same as posting on Twitter) but whatever. If you can get past that, it's a pretty funny commentary on society. But then the show just went downhill... Butters going to the DMV for confession was kind of funny but underdeveloped. The real disappointment was Cartman's infiltration of the NSA. So much potential squandered. Is this the same kid who tried to exterminate the Jews and made Scott Tenorman eat his parents? There are so many different places they could have gone with the Cartman plot but instead we get Santa Claus? I was so excited to see them rip on Edward Snowden and it never happened. (The man is a hero but such an easy target for satire) I don't think they should have tried to cram the Butters plot and the Cartman plot into the same show. They should have picked one and ran with it. I was so excited about this episode and it turned out to be one of the weakest of the series. If this is what they come up with when they have ample time to prepare, what are the weekly shows going to look like? I really hope this one was just a fluke and the show hasn't lost it. Also, when was the last time Alec Baldwin was relevent?
