Well done, and original
21 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While there are many references to old ghost movies, the episode is original in its style. The celebrities, and the whole airplane idea, along with the Chipotle and Beauty Pagant sequences, this is highly good South Park.

Some people may balk at the use of the celebrities (in particular Davi Carridine's "sexy" outfit), but other than that, I found it highly funny, (though they could have given Cronkite some more respect with a better impersonation).

For a season premiere, it was the best choice because of all the celebrities' death, and despite what some may say: MICHAEL JACKSON GOT WHAT HE DESERVED (in this episode, not dying)!!!!!!!!!!
