Did You Know?


Craig: Was there ever a moment, when you had the genius idea of becoming a Peruvian flute band, that you thought, "Hey, ya know, this might backfire."?... No. That never occurs to you guys, 'cause you guys are jerks, and you never learn from your mistakes, and that's why everyone at school thinks you guys are assholes.
Kyle: That's not true! People at school like us! Don't they?
Stan: Yeah, Craig's just being a dick because we're going through a tough time right now.

Another episode that is more than one part!
24 October 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Like plenty of South Park episodes such as Imaginationland or Go God Go, this is another two or more parter episode.There seems to be one for every season.This episode somewhat spoofs the movie "Cloverfield" which I have not yet seen.Stan gets annoyed with the fact that Peruvian flute bands are everywhere.The boys then decide to start there own so they can get rich.They need money to start it, so they ask Craig who has $100 from his grandmother to be in the band with them.But them and all the other flute bands end up getting sent to Guantanamo bay.Meanwhile, Randy gets a new video camera and bothers everybody with it.We also find out the Peruvian flute bands are playing to keep away some sort of "beast".The episode has a cliffhanger and will be continued in the next episode.I enjoyed this episode.It was not as good as Imaginationland or Go God Go, but it seems fairly promising and does have some very funny parts!
