It's been forever and a half since I've posted on these forums, but I simply HAD to pose this question to people who are truly educated.
How does everyone else feel about the latest run of episodes? Because I don't know how I feel about them. They've had their moments, but they don't feel quite the same to me. I'm not sure exactly what it is. The writing team is well aware that the show can get preachy at times...but that's what I love about the show! They take something that pisses them off (usually), and they completely satirize the situation and then make a very valid point on the subject.
But lately...it seems like they're less preachy. I don't even know how to describe it properly. Because they HAVE been making their points, but they just don't seem to be done the same way. I thought Tonsil Trouble had a weak ending, Britney's New Look was actually a bit uncomfortable to watch, and Major Boobage probably went over most people's heads, especially if they've never actually SEEN Heavy Metal. Now I DID like Canada On Strike, but I think they could have done SO much more with the whole WGA topic. And Eek, a Penis! didn't really satirize anything, but that's fine. They can't ALL be that way.
So am I completely crazy? Can anyone at least see where I'm coming from? Does anyone AGREE? Your thoughts? Stop asking questions? Okay...sorry.
It's hard to write when you're out of ideas.
