Guitar Queer-o
Stan and Kyle are hooked on Guitar Hero. But Stan's superior skills on the video game damage his friendship with Kyle.
How exactly could this not be a great episode?

I imagine it will be a great episode. As great as ManBearPig is real. More real than any of us, at least.

I'm not sure how they did it, but they somehow managed to animate me. In my living room. Last night.

There's a knob that looks like that (on the right) at every Best Buy or Fry's I go to playing this game.

This is not the season finale. This is episode 1113, leaving one more episode next week. They do 14 episodes a season.

From the sticky:

Starting Episode Threads
This area thrives on episode-specific threads for TV shows. Thank you to all who contribute here by starting threads for episodes. In order to keep these threads readable and user-friendly, please try to hold-off on starting an episode thread until the morning the show airs. The reason for this is so we can make sure that the thread does not get bogged down in speculation and anticipation-type posts before the actual discussion of the show gets going. (Many people do not read the threads until after the episode has aired and it can be a pain slogging through two pages or more of "Can't wait!" type posts.)
Also, this way all the shows that are airing that night are right on the first page and can serve as an excellent reminder to everyone to watch. Starting threads too early can also mean your thread gets bounced to the second page and then someone else doesn't see it and starts a duplicate thread. (This seems to happen several times a week).

Please wait until the day the episode airs to start a new episode thread.

Question: It's been fairly well established that these episodes are started and finished the week they air. Aren't Matt and Trey members of the WGA? Is the strike not affecting South Park?

Not that I'm complaining if it isn't.

This is the Season Finale...so it shouldn't really affect them.

The four South Park PAs are nerds.

We arenít the classic, pocket protector/virginity 4 life kind of nerds, but instead a shining example of the new nerdiness: one of us is a music nerd, another is a soccer nerd, thereís the liberal arts comic book nerd and the months of extensive research electronics nerd. Our lives arenít enveloped by our nerdosity, but spiced as if with a jerk sauce.

Although we spend the majority of our conscious lives together, Iím never really aware of how nerdy we are. Maybe because we work in an office thatís nerd friendly, with an atmosphere that both harbors and sometimes encourages us to be as nerdy as we want.

Tonightís episode is all about the game Guitar Hero, which is a subject Iíve talked about before in the production blog. For those who donít know games or live under a rock, Guitar Hero is a video game that simulates being a rockstar, complete with guitar shaped controller and imaginary fans. GH is especially near and dear to our hearts because it:

It allows you to pretend youíre cool.
It makes you think you might actually have some skill at playing guitar.
Girls donít hate it.

Jeff and I are working late tonight, and we play our fair share of video games. We donít come away from them thinking that we can actually fight space aliens, shoot magical portals into walls, or travel back to WW2 and shoot people without getting injured. Guitar Hero is different: if you play a good game of GH you almost strut a little bit.

Which is why tonightís episode is a sobering experience. After watching it come together I feel like maybe we flew a little too close to the nerdy sun with Guitar Hero. Maybe we should take a step back and look at the dark side of being a Guitar Hero:

More often than not, a dude who pulls out a guitar looks and behaves like a total douche. Weíve all seen it before: some jerk trying to impress the ladies with his badass skills banging out Coldplay as hard as he can. Ugh.

Well, imagine that douche . . . now take away the guitar and replace it with a plastic video game controller. Weíre even worse than that loser, because weíre pretending to be him, all the while tapping our feet and clicking our fingers with the same proud idiocy that the real-life jerk performs with.

So enjoy your Guitar Heroing, and enjoy the new episode, but think about other ways you can be cool that donít involve wracking up points on Bostonís ďMore Than A FeelingĒ.

(Jeff would like me to note, here at the end, that he actually knows how to play ďmean guitarĒ. I think itís important to understand that, while this is true, I still beat him at the Guitar Hero playoffs a couple months ago in the office. Whoís the nerd NOW, Jeff?)

Well, if this isn't the last episode of the season, I wouldn't be surprised to see a quick episode churned out about the strike next week.
