Brings back moments when I took some quick and dirty cheap intro. courses with the Scientology group. Back then,I didn't have the funds nor the inclination to go up "the bridge" just to get to the ultimate disappointing truth of human existence..LOL. Then again, as far-fetched it may seem, the idea that the Earth was a dumping ground and that beings dumped into volcanoes,far-off lands, and islands has been reiterated again and again throughout human history.

One of the only shows left that doesn't insult my intelligence with dumbed down, lackluster writing that's so haphazardly slapped together that they need a laugh track to tell the mindless drones who enjoy watching that crap what's funny and when they're supposed to laugh. Personally, the only thing I'll watch with a laugh track is the Flintstones. Plus, since around seasons 4 & 5 they've really stepped up their game bringing in more intellectually stimulating plot lines and character back stories.

I really got into this show about 6 years ago and since then it has become my favorite show of all time. Matt Stone and Trey Parker are comic geniuses and they have only gotten better over the years at crafting hilarious and often thought-provoking episodes. Some people I talk to about the show say that they don't like it because it's profane or ridiculous. But I think they must be looking at just the surface of the show. Beneath the surface is a rich tapestry of comedy, satire, parody, and astute social/political commentary. And yeah, sure, sometimes there's just some silly, good old-fashioned fun, which really just goes to show that the show's creators don't take themselves too seriously. Surely this show is a great beacon of light in a sometimes bleak world.
