South Park: The Snuke
(S11E04) This was a hilarious episode, and yet I couldn't help but feel it's the sort of episode that comes easy to its creators. The "snuke in Hillary's snizz" gag wasn't exactly inspired, considering the very first episode centered on a gigantic satellite in Cartman's ass and just last season another episode focused on Oprah's "minge." Then there was Cartman's fart torture and the scene toward the end where the Queen shoots herself, both of which I laughed at quite uproariously but that still seemed a bit too easy by South Park standards.
That isn't to say the whole episode should be written off. The 24 parody was perfect with Cartman in the Jack Bauer role, tracking down a Muslim kid he suspects of terrorist activity. I loved how Cartman whispered loudly for dramatic effect, and how both the kids and the government used basic Web sites like Google, Mapquest, Pay Pal, eBay, MySpace and eHarmony to piece together what turned out to be an elaborate plan to help the British finally get payback for that whole American Revolution thing. I also loved that the British attacked on old ships, which meant it took the U.S. fighter planes about three seconds to wipe them out completely.
All in all, not a bad episode, save for a few uninspired moments. I thought the jabs at Hillary were quite funny, especially when she decides to speak in a kind of "small town redneck" drawl in order to connect with the people of South Park. The show has done better, but this episode had enough laughs that I'm not going to complain too much.
