Entirely dissapointed.

4:3 ratio.
Recycled clips from the orignal 90's show.

Come on...really?

South Park can crank out a new episode in under 7 days, in 16:9, HD without recycled clips. They spent how many months to make this crap.

To quote both Beavis & Butthead. "This sucks"

I was thinking the same thing, it's a shame. Maybe it will get better?

I dunno about you guys but I loved it. Felt just like the mid-90s. Perfect. I laughed out loud quite a few times. And that Skrillex video was sick. Would never have known about it, but now playing it on YouTube over and over. Amazing stuff.

CALL 911!






Liked it even more than the original ep's. Hope they have the Hank Hill neighbor character in this version, he is one of the few I have not seen in any of the previews yet.

B&B were bagging "The Jersey Shore." That's recent enough for me.

That's Mr. Anderson. He was in one of the previews, like this one:

I remember reading that the first few episodes would use old clips because of the rush MTV put on them to get new episodes and eventually they would all be 16:9 HD. Also remember MTV is trying to do this "on the cheap" so that's probably another reason why they are recycling clips. I personally think they did a great job finding old clips that would match up to the new audio so it didn't look like an Asian movie dubbed in English.

The only scenes that were recycled were the ones during videos, or when they made fun of jersey shore. The storylines were brand new clips.

I personally don't care if the re-use clips as long as it is still funny and this week's episode was hilarious.
