It was an alright episode. The meaning was well done.

It didn't feel that good though. I think its the whole alien thing that didn't really do it for me.

A lot of this season the problem has been the lack of jokes. There have been long ones like the Ring etc when they have really gone for something and made fun of it, but none of the usual great lines and set-pieces.

The last ep was an example. I've watched it three times and I'm struggling to remember a decent line. That type of alien episode was reminiscent of a crap treehouse of horror Simpsons.

Southpark used to be totaly different then how it is today. since about three seasons aggo they started making episodes that are built by a one big joke with a few little jokes on the side.
Southpark used to have lots of little jokes on its first ten seasons.
You can see that they are starting to run out of funny and good jokes.

I agree that this episode was another weak one (accept for the name Baby Fart Mcgeezaks). I think that the writers just see how ridiculous everything is becoming in the world today. There is plenty of crap that needs a good clownin in daily local, national, and world news. Maybe too much. They need to sit back, look at it all as a whole, and choose the correct topic to get the most solid jokes.

Cant disagree more, I think that they are taking more care with the new episodes rather than just 'selling out' like they did at first.

Not to say southpark never used to be funny, it was very funny, but not as deep.
Now there are more twists and mind games, its cleverer with more developed characters.

And lots of hidden messages.
This episode has more than usual.

EDIT: I agree Hydrozilla

They certainly "sold out" in the sense I think you mean in the first 2/3 seasons. In fact Trey and Matt have admitted as such. "I can't believe we thought that was good writing! It's really tough to watch." - Trey on seasons 1 and 2.

But my point is that 5-12 have been incredibly well crafted with regard to density of jokes, targets etc (I could go on for days) my problem is strictly with 13 so far which has been very tame and one-joke oriented.

"there are more twists and mind games, its cleverer with more developed characters." Yes indeed, but in eps like "Cartman sucks, Stanley's Cup, Casa Bonita" not in anything in 13; so far anyway. The upcoming Pirates one looks good though.

Season 12 was superb even when it wasn't trying to be funny. A good example was the Britney one where they took a different angle from everyone else. I just think they may have their minds on the Mormon musical but the first half of season 13 has been the weakest I can recall.

Season 13 in particular is lacking in the ammount of individual jokes yeah.
I still stress the importance what i see as hidden messages.
I could be imagining things though.
Its more political (or more in your face political), and I guess not everyone would appreciate that.
Lucky for me though I like it.

Its good they arent afraid to change things if they want to.
Shows like The Simpsons or Family Guy stick to one formula to avoid losing fans.

If previous seasons are anything to go by, we've still got the best to come: the two part episode near the end of the season.

this one was quite cool IMHO...
Randy Marsh has a central role in this season and he is well characterized.
When he is dressed like Princess Leia Organa... or
When he is feigning surprise Whaaat? Oh my God, not Finland...
Briefly I found this episode funny and original.
It raised the overall level of this season.
Together with fishstix ,fatbeard and Margaritaville it was nice.

I'll go a step further and say that this is my least favorite episode ever. And I've seen all of them. But, I'll also take a step back and say that season 13 overall is actually pretty awesome. It's true that they've become less about individual jokes, but that's fine with me. Simplicity, you know? Scott Tennorman Must Die was one continuous gag ripped right off the Roadrunner cartoons, with a little twist-ending that put The Sixth Sense to shame, and I think we can all agree that was a 10 on the laugh-o-meter.
