Episode 813: Cartman's Incredible Gift
After sustaining a severe head injury, Cartman appears to have the power to see into the future. South Park detectives are quick to enlist his help in cracking unsolved murder cases and Cartman is more than willing to help, for a price. In the meantime, a group of "licensed" psychics cry foul when Cartman refuses to join their ranks.
Tonight 10 pm / 9 C
Rerun Sunday 11 pm / 10 C
Have they started a new season of Reno 911, yet?
I think that being portrayed in a cartoon where you get shoved up a gay dude's tailpipe like a gerbil pushes the limits of that theory.
Add me to your ping list. Thanks.
If they depicted, say, Mark Morford being shoved up Mr.Slave's disposal unit, do you think he would take it as bad publicity?
Not that I am aware of.
Nah, Morfie would be humming "Stairway to Heaven" the entire time.
Oh my word folks.
I will be downloading this one from Ares or Kazaa tomorrow....
That was really good.
Monday's episode was the worst ever. A 30-minute campaign commercial for fetal research, it totally forgot that South Park is supposed to be a comedy. Instead, we got long-winded pontification about how wonderful stem-cell research is.
Oh, yes, it is so daring and courageous to use the phrase "aborted fetuses (or feti)" over and over again. Not.
As often, I couldn't tell whether the greatest impact will be to promote fetal research, or to mock it, but I really don't care. The point is that the episode was about as unfunny as Chicago Hope.
If so you totally missed the point of the episode and the devestating humor used against Reeves.
If it was you got the point ass backwards.
Dare you enter "The Chamber of Farts"?
Umm...Wouldn't really call a fetus-sucking fiend a great spokesman for fetal stem-cell research. Check that security setting on your irony filter! ;)
Was it the Reeves episode or the one where Cartman uses fetal cells to clone a Shakey's?
Sigh. Reload, then reply. That way you won't ask the same question for the fourth time...
Cartman uses fetal cells to clone Shakey's
No, it wasn't the Reeves episode... I think it was the atonement Viacom made them do for the Reeves episode. (The Reeves episode was way over the line, but FUNNNYYY!!)
I think in the end, they demonstrated that the fetal stem-cell movement is driven by profit as much as by human concern. Obseve that Cartman was just trying to use them for his personal gain all along, and apparently had crocodile tears for Kenny.
I thought Cartman's power was having lots of powers.
