South Park:

Jesus as in Revelations
Faily prominen. Should have thread.
My favorite episode was where the Trapper-Keeper eats Cartman and turns into a hideous Akira-esque blob monster, and a Terminator-lookalike is sent to thwart him.

I don't remember which episode this is from, but one of my favorite jokes from the show was when either Stan or Kyle (can't remember which) had been reading up on Zen/ Buddhism/ Existentialism, and as a result, vanishes into an astral mist and starts making peoples heads asplode using Logic Bombs/ existential crisises/ Mind Rapes.

That was from the tooth fairy one, and he was actually reading about Cartesian doubt, and completely misunderstanding it. But apart from that, it was still a fun episode.

...and it was Kyle.

I can't believe we didn't have this thread yet. Ah, the days when it wasn't as self-aware and preachy. I forgot about Trapper Keeper.
Any idiot knows Freud was a Star Trek fan and Star Wars invented The Hero, right?

I just got into South Park like two months ago.

It's awesomesauce. Cartman can burn in hell, though.
Did the show start getting preachy before 9/11, after 9/11, or way the Hell after 9/11?

Agreed - Matt and Trey know have no regards for partisan politics of either sort - South Park Republicans are the new libertarians, methinks.

an heroic gesture would do the world good

I see the Awesomeness.
I liked it better when I thought all the Aesops were of the spoof variety, I didn't realize that they actually meant any of it.
first insect politician
It has some great Aesops, though. The only one that bugged me was "vegetarians are all big pussies, " and I'm not even a vegetarian myself. At least it acknowledged that veal farming is ghastly.

Kenny Dies probably had the most touching moral of the series.

My favorite episode would have to be "Make Love, not Warcraft." I don't even play the game, but god that episode was hillarious!
Would you believe I never fully watched the original Indiana Jones trilogy? I gotta correct that someday.

Funniest moment ever: in the NAMBLA episode, when Cartman decides he needs more "mature" friends, so he does a google search for "old men who like young boys."
Jesus as in Revelations
And then the FBI catches every single one of them before he has time to even exchange words. Including Mr. Garrison!!!.

My Win the Crowd moment was the "I'm a little bit country" episode. I was finally able to make sense of American politics... And then there was the Go God Go episodes. "My balls are dry..."

Try the French dub, Eric Cartman has a much more evil and manipulative voice there.

Reverse the Curse
My uncle can't watch it. Anything with little kids being crude just annoys the hell out of him.

I like some of the episodes I've seen, but not all. They ain't no glory-days Simpsons, that's for sure.

Very much agreed, Fujiko. But at least South Park can hold it's own.

Of the season that just ended recently, my favorite was the one were Butters becomes a pimp. Butters has always been one of my favorite characters.

To be honest I liked South Park more after it became a vehicle for Trey and Matt's social outlook. Comedy is at its best when its serving a purpose and not just being random shenanigans. Also a lot of early episodes just weren't that funny.

EDIT: Case in point: "The Biggest Douche in the Universe." Funny as hell but also served a purpose.

And it just gets better from there!

WHAT IS GOING ON?!
I agree. South Park is really good about crossing the line twice so that even when my views are being lampooned, I don’t take it personal. They’ve pretty much made of every group and celebrity under the sun. Hell, George Clooney has done voices for South Park but still got made fun of in Team America: World Police AND episode of South Park later yet continues to be a fan.

The Biggest Douche in the Universe
I can't bloody stand John Edward, but I still thought the ending of that episode was idiotic.
The show is at it's best when Matt and Trey aren't dedicating entire episodes to waving their stupid little Liberterian dicks around about whatever issue they (e.g the fart joke guys) for some reason think they're intelligent enough to argue.

They have the politics of selfish teenagers, they should stick to dick jokes.

I like the one where Garrison tries to get fired for being gay.

"Hey Mr. Slave I had a dream you were a HUGE DICK"

"Why did you dream I was an asshole?"

"No, I was the asshole."

I can't watch "Mr. Garrison's Fancy New Vagina" or "E Ek, a Penis!" anymore because they're the only episodes to just bugs meme.

My favorite episode is still "Good Times with Weapons"

"Eek, A Penis" was one of those episodes that aimed to cross the line twice, but overshot and ended up crossing the line thrice.

OH YES.

And it wasn't in a good way either.
