South Park -- "Over Logging" -- 4/16/2008

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
The citizens of South Park wake up one morning shocked to find the internet is gone. Upon hearing news that the internet may remain in California, Randy decides to head out west with the family.


Oh boy, a Randy-based episode! Whackiness ensues.

Slamming the internet obsession is sure to be a goldmine.

I just want a new show starring Randy. Call it Marsh Madness maybe, I dunno, but by God I'd watch it every single time it would come on.

Wasn't the funniest episode they've ever done, but I was "mindlessly surfing the internet from my laptop while watching TV" as they said it, so hey...it's topical

Porn simulator and "the ghost" were both good, but not enough to save this from being the new worst episode of the season.

Got slow during the black and white part after a pretty good start, but HOLY SHIT, the Internet porn simulator was priceless, and the "ghost" scene has to be one of the most hilariously wrong things ever seen on this show. I actually thought I was going to start choking from laughing so hard.

Total miss for me. The unplugging the router and plugging it back in moment was clever, but the rest of it bored me to tears...

Loved every bit of it...the Grapes parody, the porn simulator...I was cracking up throughout. Excellent episode. This season's definitely been hit and miss, but I loved this one.

I also loved this one. No, it wasn't topical. It was funny, though. Remember, my hopes are for a funny episode first and foremost. They can do a shot for shot remake of Ishtar as long as they make it funny. Topical is only a consideration for me when funny is absent.

The porn simulator was awesome, but by god the ghost scene was legend...wait for it...dary!

Grapes of Wrath, Close Encounters, Ghostbusters, On Deadly Ground, boy they've been really eclectic in their pop culture references this season.

I'd put it in the middle of the pack for this season's episodes.

Pretty funny stuff.

Enjoyed the Grapes of Wrath homage and the emerging internet psychosis developing amongst the population. For many, the internet is as common as running water as a basic utility in their homes, and when it's gone (even temporarily), it feels weird.
