Good episode
28 December 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Free hat brings up the issue of directors altering their films and re-releasing them.It happened to Star Wars and it happened to ET.There is also a hilarious fake commercial where Trey Parker and Matt Stone talk about remastering the first episode "Cartman Gets An Anal Probe".The boys and Tweek get sick of directors altering their movies, so they start a club to get directors to stop altering their films.They add "Free Hat" to their sign so more people will come.However the people who came want to free a man named Hat who was convicted(and probably did it) of murdering toddlers.So they try to fight both causes(though they don't really care about the latter one).The boys try to stop Spielberg and Lucas from altering "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" and there are some really funny homage scenes to that movie such as when tweek is hiding with the rocket launcher, the movie causing peoples skin to melt and the ending.This is a fairly good episode with some funny scenes.
