Funniest episode in a long, long time
22 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

*Spoilers, but this is south park so who really cares***

This episode manages to brutally satirize cable companies, the recent trend of procedural crime dramas pregnating TV nowadays at every turn, and minecraft all at once. The bits with the cable company are freaking hilarious! Illicitly implying cable companies, with their ridiculously convoluted and purposeless rules regarding programming packages, gets off on frustrating their customers. The head of the cable network, at the end of the episode, has one of the funniest lines i've heard in south park in awhile as he tells customers in order to get their beloved procedural crime dramas, or murder porn, back they have to pick up an extra 300 channels in Portuguese. Pretty much how cable companies work in real life.

Then there's the minecraft sections. Oh god are they hilarious. "Someone punched all the trees and dug a bunch of holes in one of your neighbors lawns. And someone built a cabin on your other neighbors lawn.". I haven't laughed this hard in a long time. South park brilliantly skewers minecraft by first pointing out how pointless it actually is, then that adults nowadays have severely impaired imaginations, then finally coming full swing and satirizing how addicting it is. Butters dad on his cardboard box castle he built to look exactly like minecraft is not an something I will soon forget.

Brilliant episode, it shows south park is just as sharp and witty, if not more so, 17 seasons in than it was when it was young and fresh. That's something I'm not sure any other show could claim with any legitimacy. 11/10
