Parker and Stone Still Got it!

Last week's South Park episode, Go God Go was billed as being centered around the theme of evolution. Knowing Parker and Stone's pithy wit while commenting on socio-political issues, I was really looking forward to a future classic. The episode itself was a slight disappointment. Cartman's wait for the game, freezing himself, Richard Dawkins boning Garrison... it all seemed very random. However the episode ended with "to be continued".

The concluding episode Go God Go XII totally redeemed the creators. It all came together superbly in the end, and the episode was totally hilarious. Plus the "message" of the episode was different from what I would've predicted, and that added an extra element of interest. And yes, the episode is totally owned by Cartman. Especially the scenes in which he is talking to himself over the phone (don't ask for an explanation... it'll be a spoiler) are a hoot and a holler.

What's that you say? I'm a South Park Republican? Better than being an elephant or a donkey, I say.
