Random, but enjoyable!
8 November 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

About Last Night... is actually a pretty decent episode compared to most episodes in this season, yes it's quite random, and seems to goes off in places, but it's still none the less a funny and imaginative episode. It starts off with Obama supporters celebrating that he has succeeded in winning the presidential election, getting drunk and screaming "change", and Mccain supporters worry and panic the world is about to end. Ike being a Mccain supporter attempts suicide, and Cartman takes advantage of the situation by going round town and stealing televisions. In comes the Oceans 11 spoof, it is revealed that Mccain and Obama are an elite team of thieves, and the presidential campaign was just a cover up for a diamond heist, everyone is in on it including Palin and Obama's wife Michelle, they plan to steal the Hope diamond through an elaborate plan, with an Oceans 11 style narration. Stan and Kyle take Ike to the hospital, only to find that there are no doctors around, as one (an Obama supporter) is out partying, and the other (a Mccain supporter) has hung himself due to the loss of the election. The episode rounds up that Mccain and Obama steal the diamond and fake their own death, but Obama decides to give being a president a go. Republicans wake up realising the world has not ended, and Democrats wake up with severe hangovers. Granted the episode is a bit slow, and definitely not one of their best, it's still certainly worth a watch!
