Review: South Park – Season 15, Episode 4 ‘T.M.I.’

After the last three lackluster episodes I’m ready for a decent South Park episode and it’s off to a good start. We begin with a good Cartman rant about how the school doesn’t care about them and accusations fly about the school posting everyone’s penis sizes in the hallway. Kyle and Stan disbelieve it, but sure enough there is a poster showing how the students have “Grown” since the last physical. Cartman has a bright idea and the boys make their own list and post it over the school’s. Catman’s of course is the smallest in his class.

Principal Victoria informs Eric that he acts too rashly because of his anger and sends him to therapy, and then anger management. Honestly, the scene with the therapist calling Cartman fat made me laugh harder than any of the first three episodes combined. I need to thank Trey Parker and Matt Stone for getting back to basics, because this episode was great.

The anger management group was funny enough with the tea bagger and white ghetto kid, but when Randy Marsh gets involved it’s just downright classic. He is sent to the group for beating the ever-loving shit out of the Surgeon General for debunking his super complex T.M.I. penis length formula. They dub themselves the ‘Pissed Off and Angry Party’ and apparently people who are so pissed off at the world and the government, are only that way because… they have tiny, tiny dicks. I’ll buy into that. I liked the inclusion of the truck nuts on the last guy’s car by the way, because the people who put those on a vehicle are complete scum.

The episode flew by and I laughed throughout, so to me, that’s a damn good episode. I give this episode a 3 out of 5 bears. It wasn’t a future classic or anything, but it was a vast improvement over the first three episodes. Now I can’t wait until next week because South Park is officially back.

    Really? THAT’S what you find funny? I’ve found all these episodes to be very funny, and I love the riffs they do on various current events. But if the thing that made you laugh that hard was various remarks on how fat Cartman was in ascending hostility was what got your attention, I don’t think I can take your reviews seriously at all. The funniest part of that entire sequence was the end result, when you see once more the extent of Cartman’s anger. Your reviews are useless to me.

    Also I have an extremely small dick and I have truck nuts hanging from the back of my car’s bumper. Everyone should agree with me and only find funny what I do because I have a micro-penis.

    1. Is the end result of the scene not part of the scene, meaning that you both agree on the best part? Which obviously makes you both wrong though as the funniest part was when Randy attacked the Surgeon General…

  2. I thought Royal Pudding was way better than this episode. I mean yeah, it was mind-numblingly stupid, but it would be fun to watch stoned…

  3. OMFG! This episode had to be one of the best ones I’ve seen for a while. These past few episodes were lacking in the funny department, almost as if they’re trying too hard to make you laugh. BUT, this episode definitely made up for past ones. I was laughing my ass off throughout the entire show, which rarely happens nowadays. I was laughing so hard when Cartman found out it was a “height” growth chart, my eyes were actually watering! I should probably point out I was freshly baked. But I was also for the previous episodes, and they aren’t even comparable. This review is okay, however, I don’t think the part where the therapist was calling him fat was all that funny… It was… “meh”.
