‘South Park: Bass to Mouth’ Review
After watching this episode I feel like I’m missing out on an inside joke. The Lemmiwinks rat has showed up before? Okay I guess. Regardless this was not a very good episode of South Park. There were no big laughs, just several small ones. There was so little that was good about this episode.
I am all for South Park to be weird and trippy, but this was too ridiculous. The ghost animals literally made no sense and served no purpose, but weirdly enough they were the funniest part of the half-hour. Sure, that isn’t saying much but had these things been developed a little more perhaps it would have been a better episode.
It is also hard for rats to be funny. The final confrontation between Wikileaks and Lemmiwinks fell completely flat. Yes, the irony of Wikileaks actually being a little pet rat is interesting, but they didn’t really do anything with it.
This entire episode just didn’t work and was probably the worst episode of the season. After last week’s stellar Butter’s centric episode and especially after the mayhem with the two episodes before that, this was a huge failure on the creators’ part. But I suppose they’ll try again next week. (3.5/10)
