    It hit the nail precisely on the head

    damn it..

    by MIkeYH

    let me take a stab at the question you posed.. Because pointing out the obvious reality that both sides in a political debate tend to overreact does not qualify as "hitting the nail on the head", it qualifies as being, frankly, boring. Not to mention the joke just wasn't funny. Go back and watch any episode from season 3 through season 10 and any minute in any of those episodes will be eternally more humorous than anything in that episode, or any episode this season for that matter.

    That episode accurately portrayed Obamamania and now preserved it for all time.

    South Park currently best animated show on?

    by Amy Chasing

    Until Venture Bros comes back. What do people think?

  • Nov. 12, 2008, 7:30 p.m. CST

    Cloverfield, Cloverfield, Oceans 11, High School Musical?

    by nalapou

    I love this show but REALLY? Matt and Trey? Come'on. After Imaginationland my standards might be too high. Here's hoping its hilarious though.

    Slappin Ya

    by Crow3711

    Slapping ya, slapping ya, slap slap slappin ya silly-y-y. Slap Slap Slappin ya cause ya disrespected me-e-e. Nice. But yeah, I'm also very tired of their inability to tell a story without using a recent movie as a plot frame.

    Lame again.

    by Willips Brighton

    I really kept waiting for this to take a clever, absurd, dark South Park turn, and it never did. "Slapping Dad" was one-note and annoying. Lame season.

  • Nov. 12, 2008, 10:03 p.m. CST

    this time next year

    by Timahh

    you guys will be bitching about how you wish season 13 was more like the current one....because that just seems to be how your programmed.

    The last two seasons have been weak. My programmed what?

    I agree Amy Chasing

    by slimballs

    Venture Bros is the best then South Park with Frisky Dingo and Metalocalypse close behind. Every other animated comedy sucks

  • Nov. 13, 2008, 4:36 a.m. CST

    Not a good episode...

    by Prof. Pop-Cult

    Disappointing, and just as annoying as the HSM franchise. And it's also three episodes in a row where Trey Parker parodied a movie. I hope the next episode isn't inspired by another movie.

  • Nov. 13, 2008, 4:49 a.m. CST

    They didn't go far enough

    by blindambition238

    They should have the musical parody premise and ran with it. We all know parker and stone love musicals and would have been nice to see them flex their song talents for the entire episode. Instead the episode seemed like a overlywrought throwaway glancing blow at something which most south park viewers don't really give a crap about.

    I guess it's back to Suckitude after last week's anamoly

    by _Maltheus_

    Last week's episode was great, old school South Park, but every other episode this season ranks among the weakest South Parks ever. I did like Cartman's lines about no longer having any connection to this world, and then being unable to kill himself with a Prius. But once the singing Dad came on the screen, this ep was all downhill from there.

    Best one of the back half

    by BeatsMe

    they're absolute geniuses with the i loved how the whole thing was about feeling totally out of step with pop culture

    Movie parody of the week...

    Starting to become a little too predictable.

    by frozen01

    It did? Huh? How did last week's episode capture "Obamamania"? BOTH candidates were in the "conspiracy". <br> I think last week's episode was the funniest South Park since the episode on Scientology. Not the best, but the best in a while.

  • Nov. 13, 2008, 11:14 a.m. CST

    Couldn't have said it better myself

    I almost died

    by David Lazarus Long

    laughing hysterically at this episode. I think you people are too serious. This season has been great. OBHHH NOESS ZTHEY PARIEDDED A MOOVIEESS. OHHH NOOESSS. Jesus, people will find ANYTHING to complain about. The week before it was, "SERUSLY?!?! CLOVERFIELD OMGZ THAT MOGVIE IS SO OLD OMGGG LIKE TEN YEARS AGO THTA WULD BESZ FUNI!!" so they do an Obama/McCain episode ONE DAY after the election and everyone bitches that it's all about Obama, which is too "obvious"? Screw you guys, South Park kicks ASS and this season has been as good as any other.

    You predicted that they would use Obama and McCain as Clooney and Pitt in an Ocean's 11 parody about breaking into the Smithsonian through the White House escape tunnel? Can you predict me a lottery number, too?

  • Nov. 13, 2008, 2:55 p.m. CST


    by Chief Joseph

    Yeah, the conspiracy part kinda sucked. The funny part was Randy.

  • Nov. 13, 2008, 4:48 p.m. CST

    My take

    by Potch

    Honestly, I have to agree with the masses when they say that this season has been weak at best. The Obama episode was an extreme exception. To have the episode air the day after the election AND include actual speeches that were given less than 24 hours earlier was pretty brilliant in my opinion. And they really did get the supporters of both groups spot on. Ike being in on the whole thing was pretty funny too. The rest of the season though really hasn't been that good. The HSM ep last night was better than most this season (being in theater, I see the effect the real thing every day, and it's not unlike what they showed on tv)., but saying it was better isn't saying much. I hate to say it, because I think South Park is brilliant, but I think it might be time to call it quits. The magic just doesn't seem to be there any more.

  • Nov. 15, 2008, 7:34 a.m. CST

    It's still the best...

    by workshed

    ...sorry, but it's always great. The Britney episode was the best this season. I nearly died watching it.
