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 rail cars not requiring a driver thanks to distracted drivers; funniest moment of the episode.
  • Ear Worm: "Give Life a Try" and "Put It Down"
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: After President Garrison managed to somehow surpass 140 characters in some of his sabre-rattling tweets, Twitter actually announced it would double the character limit for tweets to 280 around a week later.
  • 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.

    • All the kids who got killed by distracted drivers
