South Park > South Park Review: "Cash For Gold" > Comments Page 2
you're a terrible reviewer eric!
its not all about fun.....why cant people accept that? south park is genious and way more deeper than it used to be. its called changing and its natural.
I seen last week's episode - you know the one about the toilet?
Didn't find it that funny - but I thought South Park was returning to form, and that episode wasn't bad.. then came this pile of crap.
It was the most dull 20 minutes of my life, I watched it waiting for something funny.. nothing.
It was one of the worst episodes ever.
This was brilliant TV. What is funny is that I switched over to the I'm a little bit country episode (season 7) on a different channel. Each ad break had a cash for gold commercial.
Even though the episode was hilarious it is also a bit sad for me because my grandma is addicted to TV shopping networks.
When Cartman sang "Suck My Balls" !!
"you have lady balls" is one of my favorite lines from this season
The Life Cycle of Cash for Gold song cracks me up every time.
Southpark is not that funny anymore. Laughed like twice, maybe 3 times if that...weak...
Great episode, IMO the best South Park episode in awhile, They did what only they can do....Bring humor laced with real perspective on a true issue. I noticed that Family Guy has tried to bring the same recipe to the table over the past few seasons and to me FG comes off as awkward when they try....SP is probably the closes the entertainment community can get to having it's finger on America's pulse.
Gotta agree with Mike on this episode.
This wasnt necessarily about the laughs, it was more about the way old people are often shamelessley exploited.
I actually found this episode to have quite alot to laugh at, and at the same time, I also found alot of it to be quite touching
If you're wondering about the inspiration, check out the Gem Shopping Network of Duluth, Georgia (note where the plane lands in the vignette sequence). It's GEMS channel 229 on Dish. As I write this, "jewelry extravaganza with mike" is selling a hiddeous pendant with "vintage 1920s" bone carving set in bakelite (aka craplite) with real diamonds...$9994 now only $2480! They even gave a shout-out to Velma in Texas.
I agree with Kim, haven't laughed that hard at a South Park episode in quite a while. Maybe it's more of a personal experience thing? The whole thing was hilarious to me because a few years back my grandma was cleaning out her jewelry box and said "Do you want this ruby ring? I bought it for $50 off QVC, and it's a genuine ruby!" And my grandfather uses to give me bolo ties... A great nostalgic parody for me.
It doesn't always have to be about the most laughs. This episode was terrific for the point it made. This is the sort of thing that puts Southpark above the rest.
Boy, do I disagree with you. Haven't laughed this hard to a South Park episode for a looong time. Lightyears ahead of last weeks ep.
