  • The Triumphant Return of Mysterion

    After a few abysmal episodes, "1%, Bass to Mouth, and Funnybot." The season ends with an awesome episode.

    Cartman, being the usual jerk, records the McCormic's getting arrested, then whines about being poor, (based on the information Butters gathered on all the kids at school.) (Of course, if you are a hard core South Park fan, you might remember Cartman and his mom going to the welfare office in the episode "Here comes the neighborhood.") Then framing his mom for running a meth lab just so he can be placed in a nice foster home. (Of course that doesn't work out as planned.)

    The hard core agnostic family that takes Kenny and his sibs in, they were somewhat disturbing. I found it hilarious when Cartman was at odds with them.

    Then there were the Penn State jokes, which of course are recycled catholic jokes, but still very timely.

    And of course, Mysterion returns. The first time, (and so far the only time,) Mysterion appears in an episode without the Coon.

    I hope they do more episodes featuring Mysterion in the near future.
