Yeah they really need to lighten the fuck up or get laid or something. Like someone else said, I immediately thought of the episode where Jesus was killed by Kyle and the Mormon episode where the entire show just talked about how dumb they were. I don't recall any Christians or Mormons trying to kill anyone over that. Any time Muhammad has been shown or mentioned on the show, he wasn't even depicted in a negative way.

Muslim extremists confuse me, they preach that people should follow the rule of Allah and the word of the prophet Muhammad to have a safe and peaceful life; yet, the creators of a cartoon television show are being threatened if they show a cartoon depiction of the Muslim prophet. And I thought Christians were crazy.

Well, that's the irony of it all, isn't it?

Ah, religion and politics -- the two greatest breeding grounds for hypocrisy. Is it really THAT hard to practice what you preach?

Okay, first I was pretty annoyed by how Muhammad's name wasn't said the entire episode, but once I got what they were doing I thought it was funny. But like Silverload said, 'The Killing Joke' reference was awesome.

Yep, that was an awesome episode.

I was expecting Imaginationland at the end, but the Moon with the whale is just as awesome. Hell, I was hoping for this to end up as a trilogy. They also made them using the Gingers instead of Crab People last week make sense with the revelation. I wish they would've fit in the Crab People and maybe an appearance from the City Wok guy but you can't get everything. I also loved the random Pip appearance followed by his death. I figured some old character was getting offed tonight, so at least they killed off the lamest SP character.

That large bleep in the end was hilarious!

I think the point with that made was either about how they want to make sure not to offend someone, OR that there's no point in trying to teach us anything since people just never learn.

Can someone explain?

As much as another cliffhanger would have driven me crazy, I was a little disappointed that this didn't end up being a 3-parter. It felt a little bit rushed...I think they could have padded it out more and maybe fit even more awesome stuff, but still...GREAT EPISODE.

For some reason I thought it was going to end with Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride, lol.

Lame. Very lame. Had its moments, but total letdown from last week. Plus, the explanation of who Cartman's father was didn't make any fuckin sense. Cartman went in search of his father several seasons before he killed Tenerman's parents, so why would they hide the truth from him?

The Killing Joke reference was pretty cool though....

i really wonder what parts were written-in bleeps and which ones were actual censors. I went to watch it at spstudios and got this notice http://www.southparkstudios.com/episodes/267116
Im pretty sure the bleeped out closing monologs were written that way, but im wondering if comedy central made them censor the word mohammed. After the threats in responce to ep 200, i wouldnt put it past those clenched anuses at CC to give in to terrorism. Wonder if Matt and Trey are pissed.

You can tell they obviously spent a lot of time on these episodes. And it worked. For a moment, I thought Terrance and Philip would be his dad, when he was telling the story about his father and said "they." But what they ended up with was pretty funny.

I also thought they were going to Imagination land, and I'm sure that was intentional, but the moon ending was hilarious.

But I think my favorite parts were every time Jesus laughed at Seaman.

So the beeps when the name Muhammad was said were added by Comedy Central and not Try and Matt.. which if you think about it, plays DIRECTLY into the hand of Trey and Matt as that was the exact point of the episode... the long blanks at the end only validated it.

I would not care at all if tomorrow on the news we hear that the dude or dudes that run this website based in fucking BROOKLYN, were killed! That would be awesome!

Quote:
Trey Parker and Matt Stone have no problem pissing off pretty much everyone. Their bosses—not so much.

Comedy Central suits have admitted to censoring last night's South Park, the follow-up to the seminal 'toon's 200th episode, after the show's brain trust was subjected to veiled jihadist threats for the show's depiction of the prophet Muhammad.

A notice posted at SouthParkStudios.com, where Parker and Stone would normally stream the latest episode, explained the situation:

"After we delivered the show, and prior to broadcast, Comedy Central placed numerous additional audio bleeps throughout the episode. We do not have network approval to stream our original version of the show. We will bring you a version of 201 as soon as we can."

A spokesman for Comedy Central acknowledged that "we went back in and added some bleeps" after the episode came in. The offending verbage? The word "Muhammad" which wasn't bleeped at all last week.

OK, so the network wussed out—but not without good reason.

A radical Muslim group based in Brooklyn posted a warning on its website earlier this week, saying of Parker and Stone "that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show." The Dutch filmmaker was murdered in 2004 for his movie questioning Islam's views of women.

"This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them," the website insisted. Still, it was enough to make Comedy Central honchos blink.

Seemingly lost on the fundamentalists (and the network execs) was that the offending South Park storyline was mocking the ridiculousness of extremists who would resort to bombing if a bunch of cartoon cutups showed Muhammad (even with a big "censor" strip plastered over him or if he was hidden in a bear suit).

Parker and Stone were unavailable for comment.

Before 9/11 and the Danish cartoon controversy that exploded Muslim sensitivities, the network ironically had already aired an animated version of the prophet without incident back in 2001—in a season five episode titled "Super Best Friends."

That segment with its cartoon Muhammad, by the way, is still streaming on the South Park website.

I would consider that to be one of the greatest episodes that South Park has ever had (and I'm a big fan). Bravo to Matt and Trey. If only Muslim extremists weren't so god damn ridiculous. It's people like them who make this world a terrible place (extremists, not all muslims)

Hopefully it'll be uncensored on the DVD/Blu-ray. Take note, Muslim extremists: this episode also featured Jesus looking at porn on the Internet, Krishna impersonating Neil Diamond, and Buddha (once again) snorting cocaine... but no death threats from any Christians, Hindus, or Buddhists (so far ).

How were there no aliens in these 2 episodes??!! I kept thinking they were going to have something to do with Cartman being born. I think I would have preferred that. They could've said that's why Cartman was being anal probed in the first episode. In the end though I thought it was fine what they did with the story and I'm not a writer for the show so I don't really have any say in the matter, but it just seemed odd to not include them in an episode with so many shout outs to early south park in it. Unless they were cleverly hidden in the background somewhere like they used to do in every episode.

Comedy Central's decision is the exact equivalent of Neville Chamberlain appeasing Hitler. They fail to realize that one cannot build bridges with people who won't listen to reason in the first place. This sets a very dangerous precident; we'll be seeing special interest groups representing so-called "oppressed" minorities trying to piss on the First Amendment just so some crippled lesbian won't be offended.

Comedy Central = anti-American, pro-Taliban.

They're going to look like tools no matter what... even more so once they die and discover that neither their beloved Allah or Muhammad even exist. It's probably apt that it was Santa Claus, though, since he's basically a children's version of the 'Almighty.'

I never saw the Scott Tenorman episode so I can't really judge that aspect of this episode. : ?

Great episode and i was genuinely surprised at the Tenerman reveal, for some reason it just never occurred to me they might use him. Loved the Censored sticker over Cruse when he get's the goo.

The Killing Joke
It's one of the best Batman/Joker stories ever written. It was done by the great Alan Moore and Brian Bolland. When you read what happens in this story then read Jeff Loeb's Hush you really understand what Batman is saying when he says "Of all the ppl in the world I though Jim would understand" (in reference to Batman almost killing the Joker but Gordon stopping him.)

I am not going into a religious debate, as we all know there's no ending to it, but how do you think this whole broad universe/galaxy came to be in the first place? In order for a painting to be made there has to be a painter; a complex computer system needs someone to put the parts together in order for it to work. I'm not trying to convince you otherwise, because apparently you made up your mind, but truly observing the world and seeing how everything works, well, it all fits together too perfectly to have just appeared from absolutely nothing. I am not a religious person, in fact Christianty isn't about rituals and being forced to go to church/read the Bible. People think those crazy people who shout "God hates fags!" and "Harry Potter is the devil" are the embodiment of all Christians when in fact those people are lunatics; they're phoneys and bigots. Whatever, this belongs in a rant section or something but that's just what I believe and there's no reason to argue it. We just see the world differently.

There's also Santa. He knows when you are sleeping. He know when you're awake. He knows when you've been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake.

But really the idea of the "painter must paint the painting" stuff only works if you stay within the human lifespan and reasoning. The theory is that it took millions of years for life to form into the complex designs it is today. The fact the no human has or ever will live that span to see it happen lends to the idea that it's impossible cause you don't really know and it is a theory. That's how i've always looked at the Evolution/Intelligent Design debate anyway.

-because it's less about religion than about people who haven't come into our modern century of modern manners and enlightenment. Human beings, without exception, are insecure about particulars of their ego or appearance or ideology or outlook and will become enraged if you tread over that because people do this with or without religion, with or without belief. It's totally in our nature and we need no excuses to covet ourselves, our ideas, our preferences, our egos, our beliefs, or our livelihood, and take up arms against each other if they're so offended. If you would ever or have ever punched a guy for offending your wife or your child, then you're part of this and in it with the rest of us because you too can become violent if something you covet is attacked. Islam isn't the cause even if its lack of modernization leads similarly backward backways thinkers to dangerous ends. Imo this controversy should have no other connection to Islam, much less religion as a whole. No no no no.

Buuuut did anyone see Jon Stewart's response? There's a chance, a slim chance, that South Park's censorship will help get other people mad and might actually give this bin laden praising 9/11 celebrating website which apparently runs in new york in the former shadow of the world trade center, some trouble. I'm not talking about threats of violence. I'm talking about getting this into the public debate and maybe making a difference against these threats to our own freedom of expression. Probably not. But maybe. Controversy of this sort is good and will provoke people into weighing in.
