  • Mysterion revealed, Hindsight dethroned, Coon+C'thulu; why Kenny doesn't die?

    10
    One of the best episodes of south park ever made. From a HILARIOUS reference to my neighbor Totoro, to an excellent parody of Lebron James' most recent Nike commercial, this will go down as one of the all time high points of south park. The Coon and C'thulu allegiance is visually one of the funnier images Matt and Trey have come up with. If you haven't seen My Neighbor Totoro, you won't be able to fully appreciate it, but its visually hilarious nonetheless. Oh, and did I mention that Kenny's inability to die is addressed after some 200 episodes? And nobody does a crazy cultist like Matt and Trey, "You can't stop him you know..." I don't understand the mediocre reception this episode is getting. This is truly a masterpiece, in its unique, funny references, and I for one can't wait to see how Matt and Trey conclude this most epic of trilogies.moreless
  • Great episode, looking forward to the conclusion.

    Didn't realise this was going to be a 3 part episode. So the ending left me a little "wtf?". But it was a great episode none the less, and definately builds for a great end to the 3rd part. Finding out who mysterion is was a really great moment, delivered in the most undramatic and thus funny way possible. I wont ruin who it turns out to be (unlike some people who seem to think reviews should just be a recap of the entire episode) but it wont dissapoint. Not really a bad moment in the show, and look forward to seeing how they finish this one up tonight.moreless
  • The Mysterion trilogy would have been funnier as a single episode.

    7.0
    Hey. Not here to argue that the Mysterion trilogy wasn't cool, funny or imaginative- it was. But did the South Park really need three episodes to tell the story?



    If they had removed the character of Captain Hindsight and tightened up all the gags with 'My Neighbor Totoro' , Cuthulu attacking things Cartman hates , BP , and Lebron James... this could have been one maybe two episodes max. The way they introduced Mysterion's secret identity was really blah and underwhelming- it should have been the climax of the first episode instead of just randomly stated. A lot of this trilogy felt like filler material. With some intense editing, Mysterion could have had his very own special episode "Mysterion Rising" and more of Season 14 could have been dedicated to new ideas.moreless
  • great

    8.0
    Coon and Friends is now being led by Mysterion (they keep the name coon and friends because it 'pisses off cartman'). Cartman, meanwhile, tries to make Cthulu his leader. It's an all out war between Cthulu, the Coon, and Coon and Friends. Who will end up winning?



    Pretty good. It had an 'epic' tone to it, I felt, probably because it was really similar to comic book movies/action films in general. And it had some pretty funny lines and a nice way to end it, leading up to the 3rd part. Overall my final grade is in the "B" rangemoreless
  • nothing much happened since last episode

    7.0
    this was a good episode not a great one. i thought that this was going to be a 2 parter but its a 3 parter. the episode was kind of slow it felt like not to much happened. SPOLIER ALERT!!!! the rest of the review will contain spoilers. kenny is Mysterion i already knew that because who else could it have been. by the end of the episode it didnt feel like they did much of anything, nothing progressed from part 1 except cartmen taking control of the leader of the monsters (i forgot his name). nothing else happened with bp, or coon and friends, or hindsight(except he got rid of his powers).moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • During the scene where the Coon interacts with Cthulhu, the pair was seen heading for San Francisco, which was already destroyed in the episode Smug Alert from Season 10.

    • While on Clyde's computer, the article on '10 Cultists arrested' was shown in a Microsoft Windows program, but above it there is a taskbar used only in Apple Inc. computers.

    • During the scene where the Coon and Friends were selling lemon bars, the first customer said he'll buy 20 bars when he only took 3 bundles, which is a total of 15 lemon bars. Note that each bundle contains 5 of such bars.

      Before the last customer arrived at the stall, there are 3 bundles left. But at the next shot, only 2 bundles are seen.

    • Kenny (as Mysterion) briefly spoke in his normal, un-muffled voice upon seeing the picture of his parents being arrested, making this episode the 3rd (excluding the movie) that he had done so, the last one being Season 11's Lice Capades.
