Storyline

It's time for South Park's annual Civil War re-enactment, and the boys have been assigned to the Union army. Cartman's misbehavior gets him kicked out, however, and he shows up later dressed as the Confederate general. Angry at his friends for laughing at him, he bets them that the South will win the Civil War, and then starts inspiring his troops to start fighting for real. Not only does the Confederacy go on to win the battle, Cartman then begins leading them to take on the entire nation. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

One of the weaker episodes, still decent though
5 November 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Red Badge of Gayness is one of the weaker episodes of South Park.It's not as funny or entertaining as the other episodes.It's still pretty decent though.There is no real "bad" episode of South Park.This episode has the men of South Park engaging in a civil war reenactment.Cartman places a bet with Stan and Kyle that if the south wins, they have to be his slaves.The boys agree knowing that they lost, however Cartman has some tricks up his sleeve as usual.The men get really drunk while participating and with the aid of Cartman, they go around the United States and take over towns.It's up to Stan and Kyle to stop them.The episode has some laughs, and was overall decent, it was just one of the weaker South Park episodes.
