  • Maybe the worst episode ever.

    Despite my love for cheesy Japanese kaiju films, “Mecha-Streisand” falls pretty flat for me. Though the situations are themselves absurd even by South Park standards, they are backed by the weakest script in the season—maybe even the series. All of the jokes are pop culture references, which are funny in presentation, but are too randomly used (Sidney Poitier turns into Gamera, Leonard Maltin is sent to fight Barbara Streisand, etc). The episode is far too silly, the plot is a huge incoherent mess, and the laughs are almost non-existent (except for that singing Japanese guy). And the ending, where everyone screams in unison, “MECHA-IKE!!!” is just embarrassing.
