South Park Season 15-04 ‘T.M.I.’ Recap

Wow, and I thought Royal Pudding was a great episode. Tonight Matt and Trey brought us T.M.I., an episode that focuses on penises and penis sizes. This is easily the hardest I’ve laughed in a long time and I do believe that it will go down as one of those classic South Park episodes. Some may call it juvenile or too immature but I’ll be damned if it wasn’t funny as hell. There were so many funny moments here that I’m not even sure where to begin. We even get a song and dance number at the end.

This was really a return to classic South Park, back when it was consistently laugh out loud funny. Sure, Human CentiPad and Royal Pudding had their moments and both were good episodes, but they were nowhere near as funny as this. With T.M.I. being a Cartman centric episode, or at least a Cartman heavy episode, you knew you’d be in for a good time.

From the very start when he bursts into the cafeteria yelling about what the school has done, right until the end where he’s upset because he’s still ‘fucking angry’, Cartman provides a plethora of laughs. Highlights include his meeting with the Principal where he tells her “I don’t care if Obama is President, you don’t go around putting little boys on blast, telling the whole world the length of their dicks!”, his scene in the washroom where he is measuring the boys, and of course his session with the therapist. Those are just three of many though, this is far and away one of Cartman’s best episodes.

Another character who provided a ton of humor was Randy Marsh. He teaches the children about penises and penis size and his T.M.I. formula is just classic Matt and Trey. I also nearly fell off my chair when the little girl asked him what a penis was as well as when the other girl read out that example problem he gave her.

Making things even better, the City Wok owner Tuong Lu Kim showed up, making a surprise appearance but a very welcome one. In the anger management session he tells us the following, ‘look if someone ordered the shitty beef, and he complains because they say they ordered the shitty shrimp, it’s not my fault if he gets the shitty chicken poured all over his fucking head.” Gotta love him!

And what could be better than Randy’s three demands for releasing the FedEx hostages; having the surgeon general step down, seeing Obama’s real birth certificate and moms to stop tripping (because the bitches be tripping all the time). Oh ya, and fuck Kyle! Too bad his bubble is burst when he finds out that the Federal Express is not at all affiliated with the Federal government.

I think the most important thing that we can take away from this episode though is the following: Anger=Length*Width/Mass squared – Angle of the Shaft + YAW. In conclusion, when someone is consistently angry or always finding new reasons to be angry, it means they have a very very small dick.

So yes, it looks like South Park is back! After a solid episode one and three, and a crummy episode two, Matt and Trey bring us an instant classic with episode four. I’ve watched it twice already and I do intend to watch it again. Consistently laugh out loud funny and full or easily quotable lines, this is going to be one tough episode to follow. I’m eager to see what they do next week.
