Storyline

A new student arrives at South Park Elementary when his father comes into town on business. In this case, however, Dad is the Dark Lord Satan himself and the child is his son, Damien. Satan is in town to challenge Jesus to a one-on-one showdown of good versus evil on Pay-Per-View. While his father trains for the match, Damien has a hard time fitting in at school. All seems hopeless for him until he gets some helpful advice on making friends from Pip. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Young Blades Bite Deep
9 November 2009 | by (Troy, NY) – See all my reviews

Early on, the South Park boys counted on highly-familiar characters, yanked whole cloth out of classic films. In this episode, Damien from the OMEN is the new kid in school, and uses his Satanic powers to get acceptance and fit in with the other kids.

Look beneath the surface, and you see a lot of grim truth about childhood in this early episode. Damien is only accepted by the gang after he begins to slap Pip around. Pip is a good kid who genuinely wants to belong, but the adults in the community don't care what happens to him or how he feels inside. Every time he gets picked on, Mr. Mackey tells him, "just take it . . . m'kay? Just be totally passive." My father was just the same way, and I'm glad someone finally told the truth about how so-called "mature" adults can stab kids in the back just by looking the other way.

Meanwhile, Damien's dad Satan is in town, challenging Jesus to a WWF style smack-down. The most interesting thing about this plot is the way Satan seems to have seen both EIGHT MEN OUT and ON THE WATERFRONT. But when the betting starts he comes out way ahead of Terry Malloy and the Black Sox . . . and that's because it's good to be the Prince (of darkness.) Good early episode, overall. A little crude, with a herky-jerky feel of two plots cobbled together. But the revolution had clearly begun . . . a case of young blades biting deep!
