Wow. Based on the preview clip, I already knew we were going to be in for a crazy South Park. When Cartman suggested the group use a "A History Channel Thanksgiving" for its report, I was merely expecting some History Channel mocking.
Let's face it, the same network that brought us Pawn Stars (huge fan!), MonsterQuest (yes, it's a real show), and Ice Road Truckers deserves a little mocking after totally selling out its namesake. Where, exactly, is the History in those programs?
I loved the various degrees from DeVry and the The University of Phoenix, along with Kyle's sarcasm quickly making him an expert in History. It was all in good fun, even if a little mild by South Park standards.
Then Natalie Portman spread her legs.
Yeah. Apparently Stone and Parker must have recently seen Thor, mixed in with a little Green Lantern (don't worry, it was just the little planet no one cares about), and just turned up the ridiculous dial.
A space Pilgrim, Standish, in the vein of Thor was sent to Earth, as it all became an absurd battle for stuffing against the space Indians. I'm not even sure how to touch that without you guys accusing me of going through menopause. I should just move on.
So I'm just going to leave the comments open to the real fans and ask you to submit your favorite South Park quotes as well. Go to it!
