    would wind up being more evil than C'thulhu. That is one messed up little kid.

  • Nov. 10, 2010, 3:34 a.m. CST

    I agree... with all of the above.

    by OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUTTTTTLLLLLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWW

    Coon & Friends is amazing. But whenever Cartman is on it drags it down... but the story needs Cartman to do what he's doing. It's just expected... and boring. "Later Kenny." "Bye Kenny." lol @ reveal.

  • Nov. 10, 2010, 4:08 a.m. CST

    I'm really enjoying this story arc.

    by Mike_D

  • Nov. 10, 2010, 5:25 a.m. CST

    I agree with those agreeing with all above, except...

    by onezeroone

    It kinda worries me that next season might be SP's last. Explaining Kenny's "power", revealing Mysterion, earlier resolving Cartman's dad... it all hints at a finale in the very near future.

    This shit has been on for night 14 years, man

    by terry1978

    Great but ...

    by Hedgehog000

    I really like what they've done with Kenny. He's never really gotten enough focus. While this is working well, Cartman's just going way too far round the bend. He's supposed to be the obnoxious jerk but going completely evil? Don't think it works.

  • Nov. 10, 2010, 7:15 a.m. CST

    Cartman has become over-exposed and lost his charm

    by The Krypton Kid

    I love the character, but Parker and Stone have made him the focal point/comic core far too many times. His character has turned into routine with few surprises. <p> <p> And I also think they have went too far in depicting him as a sociopath, or what ever derangement he's supposed to have. As a result he's lost a lot of the charm which made him likable despite his derangements.

    by davywankenobi

    I always thought murdering a kids parents, feeding them to the same kid in a bowl of chili, then laughing and tasting the salty tears of the kid is still a bit farther out there. But you are right, the charm has faded.

    by mcgillj

    errr.. I LIKE the last few episodes.. love the way they handled the character of Hindsight.. and laugh myself SILLY with the fun they are having with BP.. or.. should I say DP? But.. seriously? I THOUGHT the best of this season was "Insheeption". I thought it was flat out HYSTERICAL and by far the best of this season so far, even though I am enjoying the reveal of Mysterion.. and seeing Kenny dealing with his "power" been great for some laughs. But, I still say the one shot "Insheeption" was much funnier, just my opinion (and it seems to be in the very very minority here).

    Why does AICN have to fill in the blanks?

    by falconsclaw

    The graphic language was bleeped for a reason (mainly because most people find it offensive); but AICN has taken it upon themselves to fill in the blanks and, worse still, do so in their article headlines. The offensive words do bother me but I keep coming back to AICN because I find the news fun and informative; but I worry when I want to show a particular article to my daughter that a headline is going to have offensive language in it. Guys, do everyone a favor and dial back the language. It's not needed to get someone to read an article, I guarantee it. I know you have a better grasp of the english language than that. Prove it.

  • Nov. 10, 2010, 9:13 a.m. CST

    yeah, Cartman sitting on Cthulu's stomach

    by Judge Briggs

  • Nov. 10, 2010, 9:17 a.m. CST

    Cartman was been exploited and overdone like Homer Simpson

    by ndally

    Scott Tenerman Must Die is a highlight of the series cause of how fucked up it was but now I can just see the writers in the room "how can we shock people like that every episode" which is how cartman has gone over the top. Nothing suprises me anymore with the character. His voice has grown from childish naivté to mature adult in a Childs body. He can still be funny but they need to pull the character back for a while. It started when he gave Kyle aids. Its overkill. It's like Homers voice in 1994 is so different from his voice in 2010. Homer sounds like he has a gay lisp these days. Anyways this show just isn't making my lungs hurt from laughing anymore. Last time I laughed fucking hard at this show was the N*gger Guy wheel of fortune episode when Randy tried to solve the puzzle. That was genius

  • Nov. 10, 2010, 9:20 a.m. CST

    by BackwardGalaxy

    I don't understand the distaste for the Cartman half of these episodes. Him acting all cute and cuddly with this ridiculously huge evil god was hilarious.

    actually, the bleeps are only there because of the prudish nature of the FCC - if you pick up the seasons on blu ray or on xbox live, they're completely uncensored. So actually, Herc's not really doing anything wrong. Plus, if language like that truly does offend you, the seriously dude, what the fuck are you doing on the AICN boards in the first place?!?!? I mean, there are people on here who's screennames are worse than what Herc put above. Wrong place to pick a language fight, bro. Try christiansingles.com, there you shouldn't have to worry about those pesky naughty words. <p>now if we could only stop the overuse of the word "penultimate"...

    TIDY IT THE F URP

    by RottNElsewhere

    Everything else is happening and somebody funnels it all back down to profanity on AICN headers and posts? Gimme a fuck-fuck-fuckity break (yes, 80's, with the special bits to update). Within a year this supposed potty-mouthing will be the TV norm, like "Hey stupid get your McFucking McRib shitwhich NOW since this time we lost the recipe, $2.99 moron" or (local news) "Assholes fuck up police roadblock; after the break, weather girl might show you her tits." You wanna ass-bug - target MAN V WILD for slipping rancid enemas and piss drinking on TV in front of your kids (thank god that naked wang blurring goes down to his knees). Words are just voodoo anyways, if you feed them. Any responsible, FEARful parent should embrace the opportunity to filter and control their own kids' media reality (good luck). How else they gonna learn/I mean fuck up on their own?

    This season is the worst. The coon thing was never that funny, and now its been drawn out for 3 episodes. It isn't saved by any smart commentary or just plain old humor...its just shit.<p>Lets hope the finale makes up for everything! Of course we did get 200 and 201 earlier in the year so it balances out.

    "Insheeption" hit too close to home for many fans of the film.

    by Chewtoy

    Having not seen Inception yet, I didn't find it all that hilarious, but it wasn't nearly as bad as people complained it was. And internet fans of Inception really did need the air let out of them somewhat.

  • Nov. 10, 2010, 12:31 p.m. CST

    Firstly...

    by falconsclaw

    AKA_Gern_Blanston, V'Shael, and RottNElsewhere, my point didn't have anything to do with the AICN boards and the content within. In fact, I could really care less what you numbnuts put out here because the majority of it is masterbatory speculation and wishing that the latest 'hot' director is going to do a project with the latest 'hot' actor and/or actress (once they get out of rehab!) and it will include 3D CGI effects or a nude scene with the aforementioned actress that we're all supposed to get wood from (but really don't amount to much more than your typical Saturday morning cartoon). My point was not to 'kiddify' AICN either. I've been coming to this site for a number of years and have gotten used to the liberal use of profanity by the columnists when expousing on the latest film, TV show, or whatever they've gotten they're grubby mits on this week. All I'm talking about at the titles, the link you click on from the main pages to GET to the articles. I ask again, WHY does AICN have to put profanity in those titles? Is it necessary? Couldn't Herc have gotten his message across by making the quote "It F---ing hurts!" or "It @#$%ing hurts!" What is gained by putting the words in there that 99% of the South Park audience is not going to hear anyway? Contrary to what you believe AKA_Gern_Blanston, there's really not that big of a market for South Park blu rays out there. Now, as far as my parenting skills, I believe requesting a website to clean-up its act IS part of being a parent. If more parents were to take a stand against this type of thing, perhaps it wouldn't be so much the TV norm that RottNElsewhere says. And as far as me pushing my moral position on everyone else, I ask why I should accept any of you or AICN pushing their IMMORAL position on everyone?

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    your job as a parent is to oversee what YOUR kids do - NOT to tell websites, tv shows, etc. to change their act - you're not OUR parents, and we don't fuckin want you to be if you're that uptight over language - seriously, it's self-righteous fucks like this that try to police the rest of us like their opinion is the only way to go - well get off your high horse and quit acting like Kyle's mom!...there's millions of more prudish websites, radio stations, tv channels, and magazines out there you can enjoy without having to harp on the ones that do use the full extent of the english language - so, to paraphrase the immortal George Carlin, if you don't like it, CHANGE THE FUCKIN CHANNEL!

    by MattmanReturns

    On the contrary, I think all the parodies of Inception only serve to show what a landmark film it was. The problem with South Park's parody is, while funny, it was highly derivative of all the other parodies (and they admitted they stole their lines from College Humor). Still, it had a few hilarious moments. "Someone order a pizza?"

  • Nov. 10, 2010, 1:02 p.m. CST

    The twist that Kenny was Mysterion was gold

    by Tall_Boy66

    Yeah, that was really well done and I like how they actually since that 200-201 episode they delve into their continuity a bit more. and it's cool to have a Kenny episode where you can actually understand what he's saying. I haven't seen the other eps this season, just the Coon episodes, but I may watch that Inception episode because while I dig Inception quite a lot I do think it's pretty dang overrated by AICN talkbackers.

    by AmericanMovieFan

    Insheeption sucked. This Coon storyline isn't funny in the least bit. Kenny confronting his immortality is interesting on a existential level, but this Coon run has not been funny at all. Poor and Stupid had a few chuckles but the story line felt very uninspired. 200/201 was kind of the apex for what the series stands for and was Seinfeld-esque in its skewering celebrity and P.C.-ness. Threatening to reveal Mohamed really couldn't be topped unless they pulled out a bunch of non-sequiturs purely to shock and offend. I think it's time for the series to end. Have a shortened 15th season and go all out for like 5 episodes and then end it.

    by Chewtoy

    The second episode of the Coon saga had the Totoro references. Cartman on sleeping Cthulhu's stomach was based on this scene (about 4:30 in): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocONUZj2v-k <p> And the song he sings while they fly around together is based on this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAzhbC9onJA&feature=related <p> And yes, the "cute manipulation" from the final episode was definitely Pussyfoot and Marc Antony from the Warner Bros. cartoons.

It ends with them holding a baby Kenny saying it was the 36th time they had a baby. Awesome that T&M remembers that little bit and adds it in for a great ending. Overall, a great three parter with the weakest being part one.

    I want a season-long South Park arc so bad

    by Tall_Boy66

    I think the closest we got was Season 6 when Kenny was dead, but multi-part episodes have been their best lately. And I thought the reveal at the end was a good twist because it had been established years ago that Kenny's mom gave birth to a new Kenny each time, and it seemed like this entire 3-parter was leading up to a new explanation (like how they changed Cartman's mother) but it turns out the explanation we got years ago was valid. However, they did "explain" it a bit more with "we never should have gone to that cult meeting" so the seemingly impossible re-Kenny-birthing process actually has a reason. I've been a decades-long South Park geek so whenever they actually reference their own continuity I always get a kick out of it.

    Now the only question is...

    by Timothy_Olyphants_Oliphaunt

    When Kenny actually died "for real" a few seasons back, and stayed dead for a whole season, and the other kids knew it - what had caused him to temporarily lose his power, and how did he get it back? The people must know!

    When Kenny died (for reals, albeit temporarily)

    by V'Shael

    we never saw how he died. We assumed it was the disease, but perhaps some other immortal killed him or something? <br /><br />If not, perhaps it was just a thing where he doesn't always come back straight away. Like, perhaps Kenny's mother was legitimately pregnant, and miscarried after a few months or something. That might have put Kenny's demonic rebirth on hold until the womb was empty.<br /><br />And the kids only remembered he was dead, while he was dead. Once he came back to life, the kids forgot again.<br /><br />

    Didn't Kenny appear out of thin air

    by Sadat Quoraishi

    at the beginning of series 2 where we find out Cartman's mum is a hermaphrodite? After having been killed at the end of series 1 as part of the same storyline? Explain THAT!

    USMILE 800% SLOWER

    by LaserPants

    Is the most intense and beautiful "song" of the year. If you haven't heard it, look it up. Someone slowed down the Justine Bieber's USMILE down 8x, and the results are astonishingly gorgeous. And I say this as a guy, who, like every guy who isn't a homosexual pedophile, HATES the Bieb.

    fortunately im Gen X, so old and out of touch

    by TheManWhoCan

    with todays music scene I couldn't even hum a justin bieb song if i was paid. seriously i know the name and know what he looks like and i've probably heard his songs on the radio in shops and in work at some stage but I couldnt match up which songs are his and not just another new young singer/boyband shit.Which is good for me.<p> being a cynical member of Generation X sure has its benefits! enjoy your new music kiddies!!!

    Gen X Was The Last Generation That Mattered

    by LaserPants

    Generation Douche, the current generation, are the lamest, most timid and boring generation in history. We, Gen X, were the last generation that mattered.

    Damn right!!<p> In fairness though, Generation douch are poor saps born into a lame time period. The clowns who really piss me off are the people our age that try to be "down-with-the-kids" and bone up on Harry Potter, Twilight and Glee knowledge. <p> There was once was a time when, if your parents tried to follow the same music scene and pop culture as you, you would be highly embarrassed! Today, teenage boys will sit in and watch american idol and/or Xfactor with there square mothers with absolutly no sence of how lame and un-cool it is!!! fuck!!!<p> (people still say "cool" right?)

    I guess I'm "down-with-the-kids"...

    by Billyeveryteen

    I'm on team Edward. I'm tying to pay attention to HP(but really, who gives a shit?), and all I know of Glee is wanting to fuck that chick with the huge honker.

    And to think even the hoodie makes sense now...

    by BobbyMcPrescott

    Fun theory based on comments so far: Kenny was a born with a gift he got from his parents hanging out with that cult. This gift apparently did not come from whatever God of Death exists in the SP universe, as the S1-6 shows that death HATES Kenny, and with what we know now about how aware Kenny was of it... repaints these early deaths as pure torture on the part of death. It also might easily explain the seemingly for shits and giggle hoodie. Any child traumatized like that would inevitably curl up in something,and it became his subconscious way of protecting himself from more harm. BUT THEN! S6 Kenny dies off screen and is gone for an abnormal amount of time until the events following RED SLEIGH DOWN, an episode in which Jesus helps the boys to free Santa from the Taliban, only for Jesus to be SHOT AND KILLED. At the end of the episode they are back in South Park, opening presents when Kenny finally reappears, mere hours after Jesus Christ himself was murdered. What happened pre S6 that killed Kenny? What happened when he was gone? Did he just get tired and beat the shit out of death or something? Almost all if NOT all deaths since S6 have been of the non ridiculous type, either intentional or just realistically probable, which suggests that the real difference between pre S6 and post S6 is an intelligence haunting Kenny, rather than Kenny using his power consciously. Something happened that changed him, and it probably involves Jesus.

    playing it safe

    by JediWuddayaknow

    I can't help but notice how safe they've been playing this season ever since the whole Muhammad thing. The episodes are funny, but it feels like they're phoning it in. There's no real edge. I kind of want them to just be doing this to spite Comedy Central, like a big "fuck you".

    For better or worse

    by MegaBeth

    South Park is still more entertaining than 99% of the shit out there. Has anyone tried watching The Simpsons in the last four years?

  • Nov. 12, 2010, 2:50 p.m. CST

    Not a great season.

    by _Maltheus_

    While I did really like the Kenny portions of this trilogy, the rest sucked. The only funny part about this show, in recent years, has been Randy. Someone mentioned naggers, there was also the jack-off slimer ep and the no pants, no tv Obama ep. Those were the last three times I laughed really hard at this show. They should just develop a Randy spin-off with occasional guest appearances by the boys.

    I hope Kenny gets to speak now

    by jsarnold513

    Now that we've seen and heard him speak, Kenny would actually make an interesting character to build the show around for a while. Cartman and Kyle have been done to death and for whatever reason they don't do more than 1 Stan-centric episode a season. <p> Having Kenny take off the hood and do some stuff would be a breath of fresh air. Especially since he was the most interesting thing about these last 3 episodes by far. <p> I still feel like Trey and Matt felt lost and were just kinda phoning in most of the episodes since the Mohammed shitstorm. Insheeption was probably the low point of the entire series: plageurized and just plain weak. They've done so much better before.

    FILTHY!

    by ToMonicker

    Language is always near... <p> Gen X was/is the post Boomers sad epilogue. Back in the days of Grunge, declining prospects was already the undercurrent. Personally, I don't believe a bit about generational generalities, they are easy talking points that negate everyone's individualism. So what if I'm Gen X, I don't feel like I'm in some super club. <p> And Pop Culture always breeds a lot of JUNK, it just seems quaint with revisionist nostalgia. Come on, remember, George Michael, those mall queens, etc. <p> This season's been hit or miss for me. The mintberry crunch reveal was a little wtf are they going to do with that besides a jokey ending.

    The big wrap party...

    by Doc_Hudson

    Since they are contracted to only do I think one or two more seasons anyway,...I just wanna know where that party will be. All good things,.... I agree with most of the Randy fans,..a spin off with the adult lives would be a logical way to go on and be different....but the same.

  • Nov. 14, 2010, 4:24 a.m. CST

    @BobbyMcPresscott

    by _Palmer_Eldritch

    ...or it might just be that he grows too fast and the baby hoodie is simply too small for a child of his age. <p>...or maybe it's just silly. In any case, I liked this arc although the ending did feel like a cop-out. I was expecting Kenny to die once and for all, to sacrifice himself to kill Chtullu. This way, it's kind of back to normal again.

    Great episode

    by KEVIN_COSTNERS_RECYCLED_PISS

    But it was kind of disappointing that they basically just forgot about Captain Hindsight.
