User Reviews

I'm going to have to disagree with the masses here.
26 April 2009 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

For some reason, this episode was widely well thought of. It has almost entirely good reviews. Why is this? The plot was simple and dumb, and the ending, though obviously fitting to real life activities, was abrupt and not very funny. In fact, throughout the episode, boredom struck me, and by the end, I was definitely ready to watch something else.

Cartman gets some boys together to go to Somolia to become pirates. They learn it isn't all it cracked up to be, and Cartman has no idea what he's doing. The episode's plot is way too short, so it's drawn out by Clyde going into random unfunny tantrums, and by the end, we have a predictable and overall not very good episode.

An idea that was often missing from episodes in the last few seasons was the innocence of childhood. Stan and Kyle usually are the most mature people in South Park nowadays. One positive of this episode, is it brings back an innocent side to the show, but at the same time it was just really dumb. Right when the episode starts, you could predict what will happen and probably be close to right. Cartman mistaking things for what they aren't cannot hold up an entire episode.

This mid-season finale was a disappointment, but it wasn't horrible. It was boring oftentimes, but occasionally had a laugh or two.

My rating: ** out of ****. 30 mins. TVMA
