South Park did a good job in picking a target that wasn’t as easy as their last two: the hit movie Inception. We both understood and enjoyed that movie. Seriously, who didn’t get Inception? Not to be elitist or anything, but it’s not like it’s Primer. If you understood Primer, then we bow to mental powers greater than our own. But we can see that South Park’s comments about it were right on, in a way. The makers mocked how silly the idea of the movie was, even though the movie was so serious and was esteemed as the summer’s highest art. The other target of this week’s South Park was the show Hoarders. According to the internet, Randy Marsh’s dream self was a mockery of a Zhuangzi philosophy about a butterfly dream. In the beginning, we also noticed that Cartman was talking about Jackass 3D. Nice. Top it all off with the Freddy Krueger and Woodsy Owl things, and there were enough references in this episode on which to riff ably.
We loved the young Mr. Mackey. We didn’t think the sheep herder was funny, and we thought he should have been left out. This wasn’t the greatest episode or the best. We think it was cleverer than last week’s Jersey Shore episode but not any funnier.
