  • Crap ending of a good season

    One of the strongest seasons in years. "Let Go, Let Gov", "World War Zimmerman" and the epic, brilliant "Black Friday"-trilogy...

    Why then did it have to end with an extremely bland, lame episode like this?

    I thought "Goth Kids 3" would be the weakest episode of this season until this nonsense came along.

    Most annoying is that there is a good idea in there with a lot of possibilities but almost none are explored. The brilliant photoshop-criticism was very quickly worn out.

    The Kanye West character was not fun the last time and the little potential he had here was screwed by over-repeating a half-assed joke until it was nothing but boring. How could they even fail to do a decent parody of Kanye's crap music video???? Even the original is more of a parody of itself than this was...

    Lazy, half-hearted ending of a brilliant season....

  • out loud laughs!

    A rare original SP episode these days. Even rarer besides smiling some lines had me actually laughing . It has been a LONG time since SP had me LOL . This was an important episode as well trying to show hat a stupid trend is just that STUPID. \

    . Butters was really funny "Im sorry I have high standards" LOL... the whole photoshop is a :LIE thing is SO fool the SELF and you start to beleive the HYPE

    KANYE could have been done much better. I was hoping he would sing GAY FISH again. and was hoping KIM would show up and we would get to see her big FAT UN photo shopped ass

    this was a good episode and funny. Oh I loved how they photo shopped under used TIMMY--they got rid of the WHEELCHAIR and gave him new hair has been a long time since they did a really good TIMMy and JIMMY episode. I guesss they gfot so much HATE mail for exploiting "disabled" really--they were some of th funniest episodes .

    So this sums up Season you wipe out the first two useless episodes we have a very good season. Really those fiets two episodes are a FAIL big time. can't watch them.

    Finally---I want o point out--that they habe CHANGED

    CARTM AN the final part of he GAME WARS of all peopke says "I can;t get the image of Bill Gates bashing that guys head" etc. Come is now the sensitive one with deep feelings? In the NSA episode he does NOT exploit could have stolen all the personal data on everyone is SP and used it. he does not. Sorry-I dont like the Milder CARTMAN. you want to keep doing CARTAMN LITE then you guys ar just big hairy UN photo shopped PU....

    I don't think that the South Park team spends enough time with its peripheral cast besides Randy and Butters. So when an episode like this comes along, it's almost bittersweet. But the episode itself wasn't.

    There are hilarious gags, such as Butters' standards for women, Kanye defending Kim the hobbit, and Lisa Berger training girls to photoshop themselves. But behind those gags, there is a social message. One that remains ignored by the common people of our country. We are a distracted nation, and we're so invested in little things that when a huge matter arises, we look the other way, and then we try to fix problems that can't be helped, and allow ones such as self-confidence of our citizens, to grow under our noses. I commend South Park, cause maybe this was an episode that we needed a few years ago, but better late than never.

    And South Park has been topical and directly relevant for a long time. I think that we can give them a break.

    The ending to "The Hobbit", despite its tragic nature, is one of the most satisfying endings for me. It's not an ending that puts a smile on my face, but instead, a thought in my brain.

    A great episode and therefore a great ending to a comeback season. Don't give up on SP. I can't think of another show that's been important for this long in a series run. I hope season 18 can prove SP hasn't gone downhill.
  • Heart-breaking ending - A great episode

    This episode was funny, clever, and I great ending to Season 17. Overall, I thought the season was good, but this episode was definitely one of the best. The ending was heart-breaking, and it made me have a tear in my eye.
  • Amazing ending to season 17

    This season start out weak, the only episode I like out of the first 5 was world war Zimmerman, the last 5 episodes have been great there hasn't one episode that I have disliked. My favorite part of the episode is Kanye west going around saying that Kim isn't a hobbit lol
  • One of the best!

    I really loved this one. It was funny throughout the entire episode, but what really impressed me though, was the ending. One of my favorites. This is definitely gonna be a classic.
