Here comes the neighborhood

This was a pretty good south park episode with some very funny moments.It was not the best, just an average episode.Tolken is sick of being the only rich kid in South Park because he does not fit in, so he decides to send an ad so other celebrities will live here.He then finds that the celebrities kids are into playing strange games that Tolkien dislikes, so he ends up going to live with the lions.Meanwhile, the middle class folk of south park do not like the rich folk(who all happen to be black actually).So they try many ways to get them out of town such as pretending to be ghosts(kkk), it spoofs the whole racial movement of the 1960's only with rich people(even though these rich people are black).This episode has some fairly funny moments and is good, but is overall just as good as your average south park episode.

"us lions love jokes"

This was almost a Token episode, sure he has a subplot in this extremely hilarious Season 5 gem. And I love that subplot with Token sort of discovering he is the only rich kid in the town (his father gives him a truly great explanation: "for instance, your mother is a chemist for a pharmaceutical company whereas you friend Eric Cartman's mother is a crack whore. One pays more than the other."), feeling he doesn't fit with the rest of the boys (for instance Token doesn't know what's a VHS!) but later on also feeling he doesn't fit with rich kids (much richer kids, I mean Token hands out with Will Smith's kids, Puff Daddy's kids) to finally trying to live as a lion! In the DVD mini commentary Trey remarks how the whole stuff with the lions was just one of those things that came from a "wtf do we do now?" night. They rank this stuff up there with the Crab people so you know, but hell, and unlike Token and probably many fans, I truly love these comedian lions (and Crab people too!). But well, at one point Token invites rich people to come to live in South Park and there we have Will Smith, Kobe Bryant and some others building their millionaire houses, Token's plan certainly was at first nothing but a success. But while Token is with the lions and stuff there are bigger things going on in South Park and it's really great since WE are the only ones thinking in racial issues, totally hilarious (Kobe Bryant being like "time to leave", f****** great! And Chef joining for some reason, and for money, the movement of the rich, and finally the poor realizing what 's the way to get rid of the rich: pretend they are ghosts!) , f****** great ending! Here Comes the Neighborhood is a complete winner…10 out of 10.
