IMO the best episode of the season, but I think you, Mr. Swift, completely missed the point :)

Holy Crap, this writer must be the most dense South Park reviewer I have ever read. I think that most South Park online reviewers typically miss the main and most important points of South Park episodes, and instead get sucked in by the plot devices and comic reliefs, but this review really takes the cake. This episode was not about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West!!!!!! Yes, they were featured heavily in order to prove the main point and provide humor. The main point was how our society’s obsession with appearance is destroying us all from within. An even more important point, that was not hammered home until the final scene, was that even the most determined and pure-hearted among us are probably too powerless to stop it. That last scene was one of the most powerful scenes in the series, and I’ve seen every episode of every season.
However, seeing as how this website is called hollywoodlife, it makes sense how a writer for this site would completely miss all that. I doubt the owners of this site realize that they are part of the problem; that hollywood, in general, is part of the problem.

Wow. No, you totally missed the whole point of this episode. The main focus of this episode wasn’t to bash on Kim K, it was to bash on the media’s portrayal of women and how it puts unrealistic expectations into young girls’ heads on how their bodies should look. The lesson wasn’t to to be nice because nobody likes a girl who’s jealous. It’s merely pointing out the fact that no wan can live up to society’s standards of appearance that frankly the media has set, without the use of Photoshop which many celebrities have had first hand experiences with this.

Even the pic of kim imitating liz taylor w towel on her head and the hand is not kims if you look you see long f I ngers..kim has short chubby hands so that hand is probably kendall or kylies..she needs to stop lying about her pics..they are photoshopped..she is making a fool of herself..why would she do bound 2 video when she “”acted”” so upset about sex tape? I know why because she released it or kris did to get the attention Paris did!!! She used paris then dropped her…KARMA is coming around and exposing kim as she really is..Not a pretty picture!!!

Kayne and Kim are nothing but cartoons themselves, nothing human about either.

I read through this and was thinking “hey why are they only talking about the Kim and Kanye parts of the episode?” Then I finished it and realized this is why everyone thinks South Park is stupid trash with no meaning. The message of the episode isn’t “don’t be jelly” like the asinine author of this article suggests, the episode is trying to spread light onto how bad and how hurtful it is to try and live up to the Photoshopped role models of today. The episode finishes with Wendy photoshopping a picture of herself, which if you watched it you would see she was against, and while doing so she is crying. Crying. Because it hurts, not only that you will never live up to the photoshopped standard or beauty, but it hurts her because she knows she can’t stop it. She just has to accept she will never be good enough and instead lie about it with photoshopped images. This is a big deal because you hear Wendy saying in the episode what’s wrong with all her fellow students, trying to make a point that there is something wrong with us all and we need not hide it or fear it but accept it. Go South Park for having a more meaningful and emotion filled last episode of its 17th season then the entirety of The Titanic.

Kim became famous for a sex tape and phoning the paparazzi every time she went out. And that family is still doing it. So, when a TV program exposes them for what they are OK by my books. I am so tired of the gossip sites shoving this TRASH family down our throats.

What is Kim known for? Thats all the talent she has. She can’t act or sing. But, yet the gossip sites insist on putting every move she does on to shove them/her down our throats..I say good for South Park. The Kartrashians want publicity they got it..so don’t complain..

Wow, yeah you really didn’t get the point of the episode if that is the message you managed to get from it. What a ridiculous thing to think. And on a side note, hahahahahahahahahahahaha wow 6 billion people on this planet, visionaries, pioneers leaders in world changing endeavors and youhave decided to nail your flag firmly to the KimYe post. I weep for the future of our race.

And what is it that love based on?? What do they do to deserve your love? Really? Are you one of the fans that are taken in just because they are famous, or the fan that loves them just because you think they are beautiful?

Well, it is kind of nice to see a program exposing the trash for what they are: losers with money being supported by half-wits so damn stupid they keep falling for a bunch of fugtards and their idiot friends.

“The show is bang on, terrible role model for girls, she represents, greed, sex, shamelessness, materialism and falsness.”

This also applies to our societal conditions, and thats what the sadder and grander message was. This is a societal sickness (as wendy says “there is a cancer in our country,”) and we all conform to one level or another. Or, the threshold to resist against such a culture of materialism and vanity, as propagated by adverts and corporations, is so futile that almost all of us will conform.

No, the message was dont abuse the media to misrepresent a gender. Every character that was saying she was ‘jelly’ were being shown as idiots who didnt understand her complaint

So glad to hear you (and some other folks saying this)! The author missed the point entirely! Of course, what do you expect from a writer who works for a publication that makes its money off of exalting buffoons like Kim Kardashian……-sigh-
