I didn't like the Al Gore scene they've got on the website for the episode preview. I liked how the ManBearPig appearance was a subtle in-joke last week, pointing it out like they are in that clip is just weak writing. Anyway, I hope they've got something other than "look it's a character you should remember from your childhood" this week to make spending half this run of episodes on this crap worth it.

Here's a look inside their studio for this trilogy:

So, did Cartman get his balls licked or what?

No. He wasted his time setting up a video camera, putting on a crown and cape and then there was an explosion and Kyle ran out.

Duh. That question was directed at Matt and/or Trey.

And besides, it airs at 10pm EDT, not EST.

I have to say, the third episode was a little anticlimactic, but the end was pretty funny.

I agree, this finale was pretty dull compared to the first two installments. The battle sucked and not really any stand out funny moments like the other two episodes. Still the concept was great and the 3 part series delivered as a whole.

I must disagree. Any episode of a television series that features both Qbert AND Rom the Space Knight automatically qualifies it for the Greatest Television Show of All Time.

Well, he kind of made up for it by saying "Aww, shit!" right at the end.

He said it in the first episode.

I'm very glad the trilogy is over. I didn't find it funny in the first episode, much less by the end of the third.

Better than part 2, but I think this would have been better if it had been cut down a little and shown in 2 parts instead of 3.

Pretty funny though how Butters couldn't imagine things right, at first.

And how come Butters lived if there were other humans in Imaginationland? Should they all live or all die?

Not as funny as the first two, but still, the storytelling was good. The imaginary Cartman's expression at the end was hilarious.

* Al Gore "flying around" made me laugh.
* I enjoyed the little discussion the Pentagon people had about what was real and what wasnt. "Am I real?"
* I had hoped that Butters being the "key" had something to do with Professor Chaos.

I was hoping for a "Duck Amuck"-type moment there with Butters and the white screen.

It was a fun episode to pause every few minutes and just try to name everybody on screen, but I agree this storyline went on just one too many episodes.

Yeah, this would've been a great two-parter.

I laughed when Aslan yelled at Butters "BELIEVE IN SANTA! RIGHT NOW!" and Butters screamed in fear.

Yeah. And this trilogy was like 40% of this run. Wasn't funny enough to justify missing a PERFECT opportunity for a Halloween episode ON HALLOWEEN. Every episode in this run could have been a "bank" episode (Trey and Matt usually enter each run with at least one bank episode that they have come up with during the hiatus making them less topical to current events - all five so far have not been about current events). They could have easily scooted this trilogy up a week and done a Halloween episode about, I dunno, the boys playing with matches and starting massive brush fires?

The first half of this season was so much better.
