South Park 12/11/13 "The Hobbit" (season finale)



A day in and no thread? Guess this show doesn't have the buzz it used to...

Anyways, solid episode. Not much to say, except that it reminded me of this:

I could swear I saw a thread for this, but damned if I can find it.

This one ended on such a weirdly sad note. I'm still astonished how quickly they can add a current event to an episode.

What was the current event in this one? Was there something in the news recently about girls PS'ing pics of themselves?

Wasn't that announced just earlier in the same day that the episode premiered?

yes it did, I found it a tad unsettling. Poor Wendy, she really shined in this episode and told it like it is.

The ending surprised me a bit too. I don't remember an episode ending on an after school special note before.

The boys reactions to the girls pictures was hilarious. The Kanye stuff was less so. I had to look up the gay fish reference because I couldn't quite remember it even though I had seen the episode.

The one with the divorce where everything seemed like shit ended sadly, but everything else including Scott Tenerman Must Die was a funny note.

I don't follow this Kardashian thing. Is she really photoshopped that extensively?

I actually thought it was heading for a more tragic ending (I was expecting to hear a gunshot after she left the room, I was kinda holding my breath). I'm glad they didn't go that dark as it would have been really preachy (though true-to-life alas) and horrible timing.

I'm surprised Kanye hasn't started some sort of twitter war with the boys after this episode

If I remember right, he took the the previous episode poking fun at him quite well.

Watched this tonight. Thought it fired on all cylinders. Kanye, photoshop, the message all clicked. Ended the season on a high note.

I was wondering that myself.
