I missed this past week's episode but caught it this very early morning (3 a.m., yikes) after helping my girl with her X-Mas shopping.
Great episode... Christmas Critters.
I was really perplexed by the whole thing till it cut to Cartman... I'll leave it at that incase you've not caught it yet, but it's a great episode. Santa kicking ass in a South Park episode once again.
This more than made up for last weeks sorta "eh" episode. Very funny, very creative... Not breaking anyone's balls in the public limelight, but just a funny X-Mas episode. Great stuff, and very true to the Mr. Hanky intro episode in just being original, weird, and extremely funny.
