User Reviews

The first episode of South Park that was ever on T.V.
16 March 2008 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This was the episode that established the take-no-prisoners attitude to the gross out humor and obscene language. The episode is mainly about Kyle trying to get his brother Ike back from aliens. The plot is generally clear and makes sense, the characters are well-defined over all, and the episode is funny. The animation is rather rough and obviously unfinished. Some of the colors are wrong and don't look like they usually do and the actions that the characters exhibit are rough and slow. It's poorly animated, but it shouldn't stop a person from totally enjoying it. The humor is dated and doesn't have the same shock that it didn't when it came out and proves that the show has gotten far more foul and sickening since it's debut. Worth seeing just to see how it all started.
