Best this season - This was a clever, and funny episode
8 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

This was a classic South Park episode, where Trey Parker and Matt Stone were able to combine several icons of the world, the disgusting Honey Boo-Boo, James Cameron, and Michelle Obama. This episode is about obesity, and how Kyle cannot believe how it has gone out of hand. Cartman, meanwhile, takes advantage of it, and gets himself an automatic wheelchair. "Raising the Bar" features a real-life bar, which James Cameron decides to raise, before things get even worse. Honey Boo-Boo was portrayed correctly, in my opinion, as a dirty pig.

South Park is definitely back on track, after a sort of inconsistent first half, but the second half has proved to be much better.

The funniest part for me in this episode was when James Cameron mentioned Avatar 2. I rate this episode a 10/10.
