Storyline

Stan is upset that his dog Sparky is, by all appearances, gay. After repeated attempts to change Sparky's ways, Stan cries out, "I don't want a gay dog!" causing Sparky to run away. When Stan goes looking for him, he encounters Big Gay Al and his sanctuary for gay pets. Big Gay Al helps show Stan that gay people are just like everyone else and that being gay isn't something that can just be changed. Meanwhile, the South Park football team is facing North Park for the annual game, and everyone is depending on quarterback Stan to help the team beat the spread. Will Stan make it back from Al's in time? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

This Classic Series Just Gets Better And Better!
25 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a must see if you are A South Park Fan! If you have not seen it yet, I can tell you broadly what the episode is all about. This charming little episode deals with homosexuality and Sparky (Stan's Dog) is feeling left out, because he is only attracted to male dogs, so he finds Big Gay Al who takes him and Stan on a Big Gay Boat Ride! Stan has a sports match to deal with so it is up to him whether or not to show if being gay matters or not. As usual, Kenny is killed off at the end of the episode. One of the ten stars was knocked off, because of the very poor horsey being blown up at the very end. :(

Overall Rating: 9/10!
