South Park is Overrun by Zombies and Chef Goes Michael Jackson in “Pink Eye,” Episode 107

The first Halloween episode will always be a classic one. Kenny dies early on and is accidentally embalmed with Worcestershire Sauce, thereby turning him into a zombie. He starts biting people and turning them into zombies until South Park has an uncontrollable zombie epidemic.

The doctor insists that it’s actually pinkeye that’s going around – not zombies. Even though Stan and Kyle originally go to Chef for help, Chef is bitten and transformed into a zombie. Thus, it’s up to the boys to stop the zombies and restore South Park to its usual, normal state. >wink wink<

At the end of the episode, Stan tells Kyle that the lesson he learned is that Halloween isn’t about presents and candy but rather about loving and caring. Kyle corrects him and tells him that it is about candy and presents. This, I think, is a funny comment about the mixed messages our society sends about Christmas.

“D-Yikes!” has Mrs. Garrison Being a Lesbian – Confused Sexuality? I Think So

The movie 300 sucked. Yeah, there were some okay battle scenes but honestly, give me a break. I think perhaps Parker and Stone felt similarly because this episode tears into that movie. It’s pretty hilarious actually. Check it out tonight at 10.

There’s really nothing to say about it from a religious perspective.

Update for 8-4 with episode 107, “Pinkeye”

This is a great episode about Halloween and zombies, if you’re looking for such things. A particularly wonderful part is Chef’s rendition of Thriller.

Note the end of the episode when Kyle and Stan are talking about understanding the true meaning of Halloween and the way they confuse the purpose of the holiday with Christmas. It certainly speaks to the conflicting messages we send American children about the purposes of holidays and how it can sometimes be difficult to discern what exactly is meant to be celebrated.
