okay i knew this episode was going to be good as soon as when kenny was dancing around with the pan flute music. then they started to make money by becoming a flute band with cartman, kyle, stan, kenny, and craig. and it was written well, plot is stale, but the setting of this episode was superb. do not know why people did not appreciate this episode, but for me it was a funny and cleverly plotted episode. and the shocking ending gave me a huge glimpse in my eye saying that i must watch the second part of the episode.
overall, not as good as the other 2 or 3 parters, but a good way to start a 2 parter.
