S20.E06: Fort Collins

Recommended Posts

Quote

The Presidential election is only two weeks away and Garrison is still hiding out in Colorado.  Everyone freaks out when an entire city in Colorado gets hacked. Gerald faces ruin if his complete history of internet activity becomes public. Memberberries are afraid for their lives and Cartman starts to realize the future is in jeopardy.

Randy using all sorts of things to destroy the Memberberry was kind of unsettling. It was like if that shoe from Who Framed Roger Rabbit was unable to die. So does this mean they can't be digested? Well, they ARE water soluble, so maybe they can. That whole scene with them in the tiny car just made me laugh.

"Member which way we're going?"
"I member!"

Emoji analysis was pretty damn clever. I don't even use emojis, so I'd be invisible. Maybe It's because I'm older than 18?

The Gerald/Schwaggins dynamic is interesting. Gerald is the bully, while Schwaggins was the bullied and clings to the one friend he thought he made.

Of COURSE Cartman's whole thing stems from hating the new Ghostbusters movie. Really loved Cartman's memory montage. Lot of shots on the toilet. Also, of course he used a flashlight to see Heidi's vagina.

R.I.P MLKKK. Seriously, what the fuck was up with his mouth?

The episode felt all over the place, though I did like it. Gerald goes too far, Cartman shows his familiar colors, and the member berries go on a road trip. For sentient fruit, they're kinda cute.

ETA: So Gerald is basically Randy in the episode where they jerked it in the hot tub. Is that an apt parallel?

If Gerald winds up getting away with everything at the end of this season, I WILL BE PISSED.

LOL at Fort Collins getting hacked and that one troll getting what he deserved.

Why am I not surprised that Cartman's relationship with Heidi is in jeopardy because he bashed the new Ghostbusters online? And he lies to her about it. Well, that's at least more like the Cartman we know.

So we will have to wait until the week of the election to see the next episode. Please God, let this whole fucking nightmare be over by then.

Is it just me or did anyone else notice that the vagina buildings on Cartman's Mars had balls on them? 

That's a sentence I never thought I'd type, but here we are.

ETA: This was the last episode before the election. Shit, the power is literally in our hands.

Really good episode.  I'm enjoying this storyline.

"The election.  Who gives a shit about the election."  Preach it, Gerald!  The stuff with him and DS was funny.

I'm glad the old Cartman is coming out now.

The memberberries in the car was pretty damn funny.

With all the talk of Mr. Garrison making a big speech and Kyle's role, I can't help but wonder if the solution to all of this goes back to the beginning of Season 19 and one of the biggest unresolved threads from Season 19--the only person who can get rid of the member berries is Kyle, who can only do so by making a big speech.  it's the fact that Kyle has not stood up and made a speech that has allowed the Member Berries to become powerful.

I kinda wish that it was Randy who was the troll instead of Gerald. I'm sure there's going to be a reason for it, but Gerald is just so bleh and this seems kind of out of character for him. Randy, on the other hand, is usually the guy who goes 150% in on everything he does and this Member Berries plot seems like kind of a waste of his character.

So Member Berries bleed??

My guess is that the reason Gerald acts like this is an outlet for him to deal with his pent up frustration about being henpecked by Sheila. I mean, his screensaver is a photoshopped picture of her with a dick in her mouth. That speaks volumes.

is it too much to hope that the Turd Sandwich is planning to turn him in to the Danes in exchange for them shutting down their tracking website?

Damn, that Danish song is stuck in my head :

"Member which way we're going ?"

"Ooooh, I member !"

That was interesting. I think it opened up more doors than it closed, but in a way that didn't simply feel like stalling.

I am surprised though that this is the last episode before the election. The angle with releasing emails is a whole new direction to go in, but they aren't going to. Then again I never thought Trump's appeal was nostalgia. I liken it more to the Emperor's New Clothes.

I would love this.

Kyle telling Cartman the details about TrollTracker and Cartman immediately lying to his girlfriend was classic them.

Loved the Member Berries this week, they had me rolling. *rimshot*

I'm not surprised Gerald is the troll over Randy, the former has shown his own assholishness and obsessive behavior before (Sexual Harassment Panda & wanting to be a dolphin come to mind).

Yeah, Randy may be stupid and insensitive, but he doesn't strike me as the type to go trolling people on the internet for kicks.  He just uses it for porn.

I laughed at the bathroom scene and the way Cartman walks over and gets the Lysol and casually sprays it while talking.

A little respect please. That's President Elect Turd Sandwich.

Those member berries are catchy and funny.  Damn you JJ Abrams!!

I am wondering if the election next week will be the end of this story in the next few weeks.  Are they waiting for the election to be over and the actual outcome to decide how this ends?  I can't imagine they can make episodes that quick to respond to it, I would then they have to have something in mind no matter if the real giant douche or turd sandwhich wins

They almost always reference it the next night. Usually it's just a line or two and a change of who stands where, not influencing the main plot much. This time it could, but all the odds say it's pretty safe to start animating President Elect Turd Sandwich.

The closest they've done to a full-on results-driven plot was Trapper Keeper in 2000, but that didn't come out until a week later. (And for all the brilliant moments in this show's history, I think "Oh great, Flora's undecided!" may be the biggest laugh I've ever had.
