"Groundbreaking" South Park
Well I went into this with extremely low expectations and I am a South Park fan. That being said it wasn't too bad, at least they managed to make fun of themselves a little.
Now, with that being said. It wasn't that good either. I'm not offended by it, it just wasn't a very good episode. Not very many laughs. Also, it followed almost to a T an article I read in National Lampoon years ago about the F word.
I've counted South Park out before. I mean the day is bound to come that it's just used up all the funny it has. But it's proven me wrong before also. I think we have a few more funny eps coming before it's all over.
The "learn a lesson" ending was the best part cause they were totally making fun of themselves. Also, I like the way they didn't wait until the very end to say the word like you thought they would. They had said it within 2 minutes.

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." -Bene Gesserit litany against fear
