And it's worth point out this half-season that started in October has been great, classic South Park. "Dead Celebrities" was awesome, and "Butters Bottom B." was really funny, nice to see a Butters-centric episode.

The last episode, "W.T.F.," spoofing professional wreslting, was also hysterical and spot on. The last few years there have been some eps that weren't so great (IMHO, "Eat. Pray. Queef" is not all that funny, for example), but this season (remember SP seasons are in two halves, the half that starts in April and ends in May, and the other half starts in October and ends in November) has been really good except the Queefing ep.

I completely agree with you. This season has been great. I loved last weeks wrestling episode. It was very funny. Did anyone notice that one of the characters was reading the newspaper and one of the titles was about balloon boy. I love how they can edit an episode to include events that just happened.

My favorite episode has to be the Somali pirates one. I laughed the entire episode.

I've been waiting quite some time for them to cover wrestling entertainment and its culture. The results were indeed perfect.

Somali Pirates was awesome, and I love the Randy episodes (he looks just like my dad).

My favorite "they edit episodes fast" has to have been "About Last Night..." (the election one). The election was on Tuesday and the episode aired Wednesday, less than 24 hours later, including excerpts from speeches from Tuesday night.

I think I read somewhere they can make changes to episodes literally hours before they air. I wonder if any other TV shows (other than SNL and the late shows) do that.

I've also read a lot about South Park and not only do they make last minute changes, they also do the eps very quickly and don't plan out ahead. It usually isn't until Monday/early Tuesday of the week the ep will air that they can even tell Comedy Central the ep title and put out a preview. They usually don't have the ep fully ready until Wednesday morning (it airs wed night).

Very true, but they totally let Vince McMahon off the hook. They didn't rip him at all.

Currently I am dying for an episode on facebook and twitter. It's becoming long overdue!

That would be very funny if everybody was tweeting and updating their facebook status.

Another very funny episode was the World of WarCraft episode. I don't think I ever laughed so hard in my life.

They featured MySpace, YouTube, eBay, and Google in "The Snuke."

Even I know that one.

What a run of episodes this has been. Tonight's ep was fantastic. I've never seen Whale Wars but I've heard the crew was kind of inept. SP absolutely killed them.

Comedy Central now has an annoying "New Episode" bug like everybody else.

I'm going to wait for the rerun tomorrow.

Another great episode. **bleep** YOU WHALES AND DOLPHINS!!

And Cartman singing Pokerface had me cracking up. I've only seen one ep of Whale Wars but they definitely played on my perceptions of the crew (completely inept and ineffective). Also liked the Larry King bit and The Deadliest Catch crew showing up. LOL.

I liked the wrestling episode last week, but this season has mostly been a miss for me. I watched about 10 minutes of Whale Wars, and I came away with the same thoughts as last night episode. There were a lot of funny moments in last night's episode.

Awesome episode tonight. All the celebrity cameos at the sex addict meeting were great.

I gotta buy the new EA Tiger Woods 2010 game. EA really outdid themselves this time.

It is a good episode that certainly got the message across.

Although, I do wonder why they made Elin look so overweight.

Actually I thought it was the other way around. It seemed they killed everyone else for making such a big deal out of doing what normal people would do with money and power.

Agreed, the jab was at calling sex addiction a "disease", when really it's just man's basic desires. Who of us males wouldn't at least want to do what Tiger did if we were rich and famous? (Acting on them is another story). The guard's speech spelled that out.

More brilliant writing from Parker and Stone - loved how the Tiger and Elin fight scenes were presented as part of the EA Sports game. Loved how the men were always looking to blame something else for their desires when women were around - "There must be a reason...". Loved the experiment with the monkey given cash and loved the National Treasure nod as they searched Independence Hall. Who was the poor sap who got shot dressed up in the alien costume?

I assume it was the soldier who spoke the truth about the fabled sex addiction epidemic.

??? What exactly is your point?

If all you are doing is thinking about it and not acting on it, it certainly would never be a "disease". Thinking about drinking myself to oblivion does not make me an alcoholic.

It is actually ACTING on your impulses that makes it a "disease".

Not that I agree that sex addiction is a disease, but I distinguish thinking it about it and actually doing it.
