And seeing an Indy IV DVD ad during the Sarah Silverman show right after had me HOWLING. Not a regular watcher of South Park, but that was some funny stuff.

This isn't the first time they've targeted their anger at Lucas and Spielberg - I guess they didn't get the message after all. Hell hath no fury like Matt & Trey when their favorite movies get tarnished.
I have to ask ... Was this episode an indictment against the movie itself, or against all of the overreacting fans bitching about the movie (like it was the worst thing that's ever happened in the history of the world)?
The most hilarious thing about Tommy Dreamer is that everyone else in WWE, from Shelton Benjamin to dudes who haven't even debuted yet, has a T-shirt available. WWE doesn't even bother printing up a T-shirt for Tommy Dreamer, A MAN WHOSE GIMMICK IS WEARING A T-SHIRT WHILE WRESTLING. And why is that? Because not a god damn person would ever pay money for a Tommy Dreamer shirt. Not even his own mother. As a result he usually ends up wearing a shirt that says "WRESTLEMANIA 24" or "JUDGEMENT DAY." I think it's time for Tommy Dreamer to just print up a T-shirt that says "UPCOMING PAY PER VIEW"

Knowing South Park, both.
That being said, this episode really didn't do anything for me. Once we got the concept, they just lather-rinse-repeated it until it ended. Cartman's B plot was weak, too.
It is the policy of the documentary crew to remain true observers and not interfere with its subjects.
If there's a god, He's laughing at us and our football team.
There's something disturbing about using Ike in THIS kind of plot. It reeks of something used solely for shock value. Either that or they were shooting to make it SO over-the-top that it came all the way back around to being funny.
