  • Another episode that has a good and awful side

    Kyle's plot was terrible. Him, Stan, Kenny, Clyde and Jimmy throw a big fit just because they saw a stupid scene from Indiana Jones from 2008. What crybabies. Kyle and those other guys were just plain out of character in this episode. It starts off with Kyle crying in his room after seeing Indian Jones and Stan tries to convince him it's not a big deal, so he leaves Kyle and goes to Jimmy to tell him the same, but then he starts crying about it too so Stan goes off alone and then thinks about what he saw in the thearter that day. What he remembers is watching the new Indiana Jones movie and everything seems normal until Stephen Speilberg and George Lucas come to rape him on the big screen, and Stan goes inside the movie to try to save him (like if that can really happen) but it is too late, so then he goes off sobbing like Kyle and Jimmy over the stupid scene. He then goes up crying to Kyle who is at a counselor and is also still crying and then Kenny, Clyde and Jimmy show up and sob with them. Then they convince the counselor that the scene was that tragic (when in reality, it's just a stupid movie you can just give it a bad review) and then he starts sobbing like a baby with all of them, and it starts to get annoying. So after that, they go to the police station to try to arrest Speilberg and George, but they don't agree to until one of the officers remembers the movie scene, and then there's even more crying from him, and then Kyle cries even more! Come on Chuckie Finster doesn't cry as much as you did in this episode and he's a toddler, grow up Kyle and friends! Then after that the police finally arrest the directors and then the whole entire town gets all emotinally happy about it, and there's even more cryin where that came from! Holy hell, what an earbleadingly annoying side of the episode. This diserves an F.

    As for Cartman's side, it was actually pretty funny. How can they pair such a hilarious plot with an awful plot? Anyway, it starts off when Cartman has a nightmare and wakes up screaming to his mom that the Chinese are gonna take over the world. Then he goes to Butters to try to use him to get rid of the Chinese (because Butters is an easy target to bullying, espescially by Cartman), so they go off to PF Changs to try to get rid of the Chinese population, but they all think that Cartman and Butters are just mentally ill. One of the funniest gags from this plot was when Butters kept shooting the guys in the dicks every time and Cartman kept flipping out about it. This plot diserves a A-, it's hilarious but could have used some more work.

    Overall, this is one of those SP episodes that have a good and bad plot paired up, so it gets a 5/10
