South Park Season 12 Episode 12 About Last Night...


"About Last Night…" Season 12 Episode 12 first aired on Wednesday, November 5, 2008
Succeeding the declaration of the election results, Barack Obama and John McCain lecture their supporters on nationwide TV as the South Park townspeople assemble to see. Randy and the other Obama boosters whoop it up and get drunk after drinking in the streets, while McCain supporters including Ike Broflovski and the Stotches sit despairingly indoors, feeling it’s the end of the world. Ike attempts suicide.
In a closed door meeting, Obama and McCain divulge that they are both members of team of master thieves who are plotting to steal the Hope Diamond. The thieves are figuring the whole country being deflected by the election results to buy them plenty time for the rip-off. Sarah Palin is also in on the plan, as is Michelle Obama.
Obama sways the Secret Service to allow him into the Oval Office, contending that he desires to get concepts for redecorating it before he is inaugurated. Obama gets the team in, and Palin gets the diamond, and they make their escape.

Meanwhile in South Park Randy, thinking that Obama's win means he will be financially set forever, abuses and beats up his boss. Cartman has capitalized of the bedlam to steal TV sets from people's houses and is now selling them from a cart hooked to his big wheel. More chaos ensues.
Before the thieves boards their plane with the diamond to leave the country, Obama declares that he is not coming with them; he wants to remain and try out being a literal president. In the meantime, at the Marsh residence, Randy awakens on the couch with a awfulhangover, finds both his pants and his TV are gone and finds out from Stan that he has been fired from his job for beating up his boss. Recalling that Obama predicted change, he shouts, "That son of a bitch lied to us! I knew I should have voted for McCain!"
Matt Stone and Trey Parker, produced only one shoot with McCain as he proved to be a big pain in the ass. The episode was finished the morning of the day it was broadcast, with Comedy Central examining only a few clips of the show in advance. Stone conveyed astonishment at how the filler speeches they wrote matched the subject of the literal speeches later listened to on Election Night

South Park Season 12 Episode 13 "Elementary School Musical”


South Park Season 12 Episode 13 "Elementary School Musical” aired on November 12, 2008. The episode parodies High School Musical films.
The boys are at lunch and when Cartman taunts Kenny about Kenny's lunch, Butters declares that he's going to watch the movie High School Musical 3 again. The boys ask Butters what High School Musical 3 is and recognize they're uninformed about the newest fad. After watching the movie, the boys detest it, and vow never to become a part of this fad. The next day at school the boys find everyone singing again in class. However, Bridon's theater-crazed, metrosexual father won’t allow him to play a "sissy" sport. Stan convinces Bridon to stand up for himself, but Bridon's father slaps his mother after she suggests Bridon should be allowed to play basketball the slap was a little on the how do you say gay side.
Stan reports his father to Child Protective Services, but Bridon's father smacks the CPS agents until they run off. Sick of it, Bridon slugs his father in the nose, making him cry, and his mother also commences to beat his father. The next day, Bridon plays at a basketball game and kicks but; his father meanwhile loves the musical aspects and choreographed cheering.

In the meantime, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny are hanging out with an loser boy named Scott Malkinson, who is laughed at by fellow students for his lisp and diabetes. Despite having swore against it, Stan then chooses to join the fad and studies the High School Musical series. The boys try to convince him differently, reminding him of their plight, but he retorts by interpreting that things are shifting and that Butters is now more popular than they are.:)

IGN and 411mania.com both afforded the episode comparatively positive reviews, rating it 7.5 and 7.4 out of 10. More could have been done with the idea and it felt like they were trying to wrap up the season.

None of the kids believe a word from him and Cartman tells butters to go observe the vampires and report back. Butters sneaks to the gym and hides to document the members of the South Park Vampires' Club on his recorder. One of the vampires talks about vampire rituals and properties and then “feeds" by drinking Clammato juice. However, Butters' tape recorder doesn’t work, exposing him in front of the vampires. The Goth kids face the vamp kids, who notify them that they're clearly not as dark and sinister as the goths. The goth kids, disgusted, point out that the vamps do not even smoke . Much of this episode is a parody of the vampire lifestyle and the Twilight Series , a gaining phenomenon similar to Harry Potter. Several characters refer to themselves as Vamps and talk about how much they resemble the characters from the books.:)
