Storyline

Stan's Grampa wants to die because he's too old, but he needs Stan's help to do it. Meanwhile, the town's parents have become outraged by Terrance and Philip, the new TV show consisting of nothing but fart jokes that all the kids are crazy about. When the parents go to protest the network and leave the kids to fend for themselves, Grampa takes this opportunity to convince Stan to help him end it all. But is it really what's best for either of them? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Quotes

Grandpa: You can kill me, can't you?
Eric Cartman: I would never kill somebody. Not unless they pissed me off.
Grandpa: Oh, is that a fact? Well, let me tell you something porky. Your mom was over here earlier, and I humped her like a little bitch.
Eric Cartman: What?
Grandpa: That's right.
Stan: Grandpa.
Grandpa: And then, I dug up your great-grandma's skeleton and had my way with her too.
Eric Cartman: Eh.
Grandpa: Choice piece of ass your great-grandma.
Eric Cartman: You piece of crap. I'll kill you.

This Was What Made The Movie So Popular!
26 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Before Trey Parker And Matt Stone could stretch out 82 minutes worth of swearing kids and Political Incorrect Humor, their successful episode "Death" was what started it all, turning a popular show into a controversial landmark! The episode evolves around two themes: Euthinasia And TV Toilet Humour! The two clever plots are linked together when The Boys watch a naughty cartoon show, (I thought Terrance And Phillip were actors in live action after watching The South Park Movie, but WTF?!) Shiella Broflowski wants to Boycott The Show but somethings get worse, Stan's Grandpa tries to commit suicide, but fails and when he is almost hanged, Shiella blames The Boys that Terrance And Phillip were the reason for it. (The Grim Reaper makes an appearance too!) If you have not seen this episode, go right ahead, it is a classic and it was what inspired South Park: Bigger, Longer And Uncut!

Overall Rating: 10/10!
