YMMV / South Park S 21 E 2 Put It Down

Go To

  • Crosses the Line Twice: A kid getting hit by a car because of a distracted driver: Nightmare Fuel and Tear Jerker. Several people getting run over by bumper cars and amusement park rail cars thanks to distracted drivers: funniest moment of the episode.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • While it generally went unremarked that President Garrison surpassed the 140-character limit in some of his tweets, Twitter actually announced it would double the limit to 280 around a week later.

    • Fidget spinners seem even lamer and less effective as a treatment for severe anxiety now that the fad has run its course.
  • Nightmare Fuel: When the first kid gets run over by a distracted driver, it’s animated disturbingly realistically, even for South Park.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot:
    • While Donald Trump was mocked through out the episode for his reckless posts on Twitter, the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un did not appear outside of a brief moment of receiving Tweek's cupcakes. Considering the hilarious potrayal his father got in Team America: World Police, one could think the writers could get at least one amusing scene starring Kim Jong-un in.
    • How funny would it have been to see Kenny getting killed rather than having his death be implied at the end.
  • The Woobie:
    • Now that Cartman is emotionally manipulating her into staying in a toxic relationship with him and Heidi sticks by him despite how much he's hurting her because she cares about him, Heidi is giving Butters a run for the biggest child Woobie in South Park, because although Butters' parents are unbelieveably abusive, they at least genuinely love him. Heidi, meanwhile, is just kept around by Cartman due to the fact he's the biggest Attention Whore since Asuka Langely Soryu.

    • Tweek, if you thought his anxiety couldn't get worse this episode disproved it.
    • All the kids who got killed by distracted drivers
