Not as good as first two episodes but still pretty good
21 September 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Volcano is an alright episode of South Park.I liked it, it was pretty funny, but I preferred the previous episodes.Actually, there are very very few episodes of South Park that I did not really like.This episode has the boys going hunting with Stan's uncle Jimbo and his army buddy Ned.Since there are a lot of laws against hunting Jimbo states that the animal is "coming right for us" before shooting it.Stan, however cannot shoot animals and Jimbo calls him a pansy.He takes a shine to Kenny who enjoys hunting and Stan is jealous.Meanwhile, a volcano is about to erupt where the boys are, and the townspeople must save them.A funny thing is, this episode marks the debut of Randy who is Stan's dad, however this is not mentioned in the show.There are some very funny parts in this episode but I preferred the first two episodes just by a little bit.They were more entertaining in my opinion.
