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
Taking on unions. Awesome. I'll DVR it.
The episode last week about Paris Hilton was brutal.
My favorite episode from the past was on last night. I love the Line Ride.
Are those wings behind him or another antenna?
YES. They sure showed Paris for the skank she truly is. It was hysterical!
I think that was the most brutal show ever... But I loved it!
Looks like wings but I'm half blind. :)
I'll never be able to look at that skank again without humming the Lemmiwinks theme...
I think my favorite episode was when they spoofed Lord of the Rings with returning that porn video.
Truly. I don't think I've laughed out loud more. I can't believe they actually used her name. The part with the dog killing himself was just classic.
I fully expect her to cough up sperm when I see her....
December 7, 2004 --
PARIS Hilton is maintaining a stony silence over her portrayal in "South Park" as a "stupid spoiled whore" whose pets are driven to suicide. The episode opens with Paris' Chihuahua, Tinkerbelle, removing a pistol from the chauffeur's pocket, putting the muzzle in her tiny mouth and using a hind leg to pull the trigger and blow her brains out. It ends with a heartfelt speech from the leather-clad Mr. Slave character chastising parents for allowing Paris Hilton to be a role model for their little girls. We thought Paris and her mother, Kathy Hilton, would be eager to respond to the show's acid-penned creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, but repeated calls were not returned.
A Dead Zone parody? Cool. Looks like they're taking on the snake-oil salesmen again, like they did in "John Edward is a Douche".
However, they told the truth about her..
I can only hope Cartman's Gift is as good as his Power of Invisibility!
Thanks for the ping I always forget and call my wife at home to dvr it. Last weeks episode was great and the frog king in slaves rectum reminded me of lemmiwinks the gerbil.
Lately, I'm enjoying Reno 911 as much as South Park.
I'm surprised Paris and her mom have not commented. In their world, any publicity is good publicity.
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.
I also have a very slight memory of something that may be approaching what you are talking about but it aired long before the Reeves episode so it couldn't be an "atonement" episode as you suggest.
Yes, but that was also the "Kenny Dies. For Real" episode, which was why they were doing the over the top with the drama. They were going for the "Movie of Week" vibe that you often see on Lifetime. Plus, it's impossible to find a Shakey's in Colorado, which is why cloning them is a good thing.
(And the Chris Reeves episode came two years later, so they didn't do this one as penance.)
Dude, it J-U-S-T W-A-S-N-T F-U-N-N-Y.
Like I said, I won't even try evaluating whether it promoted fetal stem-cell research, or it ironically ridiculed taht cause. (I tend to think this was promoted FSCR, while the Reeve one had the opposite effect.) But the point is several minutes would pass at a clip without there being one joke.
I going watch that rack itt ES
GOD if Paris Hilton decided to sue Matt and Trey OMG I could imagine the sequel
That episode came before the Reeves episode. At least by a whole season. It was two-fold though. Cartman just wanted the stem cells to make money. Not unlike the California vote.
"dangus, you're bustin' my balls here. I'm just like these fetuses, dangus, I wasn't born last night either."
How do you get these wonderful frames and promo summaries in advance? We love them and your ping makes us look forward to Wed. nite!
LOL, but EEUWWW!
Oh the Dead Zone.
