This is the South Park I know and love
6 October 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The previous episode of South Park was a mediocre episode, and I hoped that I will get to write a positive review about South Park, and the very next episode I am getting this opportunity. I am not from U.S.A., and I don't know what is their recent policy about aiding fat people in their country, but South Park always mocks the recent events, like it did in last episode but just it went too much overboard with everyone gulping Butter's semen.

This is again a very good episode of South Park, and the third good episode of the season. This episode is about the Cartman taking advantage of the extra assistance given to the fat people. But it shows that actually people are making money out of the misery of those fat people, given example of this by showing that there are shows like Honey Boo Boo. People contemplate that the bar has been lowered literally so much that people actually begin thinking, since when they are devolved into enjoying cheap entertainment like Honey Boo Boo show. The funniest part was James Cameron sets to find how much bar is lowered, and goes deep into the see, and in the end actually finds it. Also, Funny thing is that Michelle Obama takes fighting obesity literally.

This was a pretty good episode, and I hope they continue to make such episodes.
