Though it wasn't as good as the previous episodes this season, it was another solid show (this has been one of the better seasons IMO). The girl list making meeting was pretty funny, and I was laughing pretty hard with the store clerk as he was ringing out Kyle. Also good to see Kenny finally get back to doing what Kenny does well. Butters once again was great as were his parents.
Lisa: Poor predicatble Bart, always picks rock Bart: Good ole rock, nothing beats that
Also, it was great to see Bebe and Wendy. And a noce nod to the old time fans who remember Stan throwing up all over Wendy each time he saw her.
I have loved this season so far. I think this has been one of their best efforts. And yes, Butters is and always will be awesome! Go #11!!
"Marriage is like that show ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’, but it’s not funny. All the problems are the same, but you know instead of all the funny, pithy dialogue, everybody is really pissed off and tense. Marriage is like a tense, unfunny version of 'Everybody Loves Raymond', only it doesn't last 22 minutes. It lasts forever."
I taped it and watched it this morning. I actually laughed out loud then rewound it to watch it again during the first attempt to steal the list. Butters trying to kick the girl in the balls, then being confused and all bruised up was perfect!
Heard a fluff bit where William Peterson mentioned that anything that's based in some factual element is fair game. Doesn't mean they should be used, of course. (See also: the episode with the personal trainer who harvested organs.)
