Re: South Park is still on
They tried to do way too much in this episode. There were like 3 or 4 different plots going on at the same time. First it was about Cartman becoming fat and having to ride around in a mobility scooter, and them not letting him use the restroom at Best Buy (which...whatever. I guess that was really an important cultural issue that needed to be addressed), then swerved into a parody of "Honey Boo Boo" (timely, but annoying), and then making fun of James Cameron investigating how far the bar has been lowered in our culture (an idea which probably seemed funnier in theory than it ended up being in execution. Plus it seemed too reminiscent of "Russell Crowe Fightin' Around the World", with the theme song and everything). So the episode ended up being a mess. I thought the premise was going to be that Cartman put on a dress and TURNED INTO Honey Boo Boo, which probably would have been funnier.
Matt and Trey should probably put "South Park" on the back burner for a while, as their hearts clearly aren't into it anymore. They can relax and count their money for a little bit, they don't need to keep cranking out the episodes.
