AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! NBC is run by a battalian of morons. They pit Community up against American Idol, then Big Bang Theory, then pair it up with terrible sitcoms such as Outsourced and Perfect Couples, and then they wonder why they are hemorrhaging viewers? They should have put it on before the Office when it first started or put it on Wednesday during the half hour before South Park comes on to catch those viewers before they change the channel. Oh wait, they were too busy f-ing up the Tonight Show disasterbacle with Conan and Leno to notice how the hell to develop shows. Michael Scott's gone, Seinfeld's not coming back, and Friends is dead. NBC has successfully lost their strongest night of programming.
I love this show so damn much. Evil Troy and Evil Aaaabed!!!
So happy it's back. To be honest, the episode kinda hit home for me because I have a friend who is in that alcohol matrix and I feel like Kyle did whenever I see him nowadays. But I thought using the Matrix was a genious move, simply because parodies have worn that story angle so far down that it was the perfect vehicle for Stan to examine how crappy life is. Again, I've missed South Park so much and if this episode is any indication, I feel it's gonna be a strong run (Season 11 strong).
A good start...
Alan Seeger, of course Pycelle is "GRAND" maester. Informally, he is known simply as Maester Pycelle. Seriously, don't be THAT guy.
The old guy visiting Roz was Maester Pycelle, the oldest member of the small council. You could tell by the chains around his neck. And seven hells, could they make his nightie A BIT thicker?
Still, I don't want anyone who has read the books spoiling the rest of the season. The same thing about "Shae being the most significant person in Tyrion's life." I haven't seen that yet and have not had a chance to read it yet, so if you've read the book and are reviewing the episode, please do not go past where they are in the series.
Disagree...Rabble, Rabble Rabble!!!!
Just kidding. I do disagree with the review, but it's expected that nearly half of the people that watch South Park think the current episode is the best thing ever, while the other half didn't laugh once. I'll just leave it at this: best of this run so far (with only one episode left to go), laughed a bunch of times, but I can understand where people wouldn't. Still loved it though.
Can't wait for this Thursday. And how has no one bothered to mention the return of Anthony Michael Hall as the bully character, making his entrance by trying to assassinate Fat Neil?
I love many things about Community (the effective parodies, the love for pop culture the writers have, Annie running in slow-mo), but one of my favorite is how they can turn something silly like the framed characters and you think it might not be all that important, only to turn it around and be the basis for great storytelling later.
