Trivia

The sub-plot of Stan being taken in by PETA from the wild but falling to disfavor by not following their marriage beliefs is a parallel of John Ferrier's story in "A Study in Scarlet", where Ferrier is saved from the wilderness by the Mormons and in return for being let into their society, promises to follow all of their beliefs but falls out of favor when he doesn't partake in their polygamist beliefs.

My single favorite South Park episode
18 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

I can admit that this episode has a bit of a targeted audience — those who don't identify rather well with either political party. However, for people who do fall into this category, this is an episode to cherish. Very rarely in television do we see third-party perspectives taken on in a sympathetic and yet non-extremist manner. It's really the non-extremist part which is so surprising; it's clear that the writers understand that those with opinions which don't fit easily into the conventional, socially acceptable options are people too, often relatively normal people who aren't comfortable with the zealots of the world (as can be seen by Stan's interactions with a certain radical group during the episode). This is a brilliant episode and it's a shame to see it not rated as one of the series' best.
