Hey everyone! Back this week!
Details have been released for the fourth episode of South Park, Tegrid Farms. https://southpark.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:HighJewElfKing/Episode_2204_Tegridy_Farms Butters is selling vape pens and all kinds of fruity-flavored vape accessories at school. Meanwhile, Randy decides he should move the family to the country and take up farming.
The promo has also been released (only to southpark.cc atm, i'll link youtube when it comes) https://southpark.cc.com/clips/ilnk3q/its-like-mango-and-kiwi#autoPlay=true
So, umm, i have a job atm working in a vape shop so, hmm, they can see me? From the promo, it looks like it will focus on all the boys trying to stop butters, or mainly kyle, and ike. It seems vaping may be treated like drug dealing. will butters be arrested? are there others selling vaping stuff?
The subplot sounds like it could be like the simpsons' E-I-E-I-Doh, where they start growing tomacco (tomato and cannabis). I might be wrong tho. Will this be one of Randy's addictions? What will Sharon think about this? Will the Old Farmer make an appearance? And do you want some e-liquid? All these questions and more will probably be answered on Wednesday.
Of the four women of whom have voiced Wendy, which one is your favorite?
If so, what are your reasons for disliking this pairing? Do you believe they will eventually end up being together? Do you feel that Kyle and Heidi are compatible and well suited for each other? Would their relationship, or potential involvement in one in the series, interest you in the slightest? What do you believe is best for them in the series, and who do you ship them with (if with anyone at all)? Is Kydi a “healthy” ship?
I know, that’s a lot of questions but... discuss!
P.S. What do you headcanon Kyle’s sexuality to be? Heidi’s?
And do not turn this thread into a pro Kydi one talking about your love for this pairing and how they “deserve” each other. I want to hear reasons people might dislike the pairing. There are many pro Kyle x Heidi threads already.
Do you believe Heidi is a positive character in this series, and are you interested in her journey and growth throughout the series? Do you find her a refreshing character, or annoying and unnecessary? Do you think she should remain single and focused on herself, or do you want her romantically paired up with someone? What do you think her role in the series was meant to be? Explain your reasoning.
If you like her, please tell me why. Same goes for if you dislike her.
P.S. I noticed Heidi was a lot meaner in the earlier seasons of South Park. I rewatched the episode “Marjorine” and can’t believe how cruel she behaved at the sleepover. It seemed so unlike current Heidi Turner. She also seemed to be the typical cheerleading popular girl with a large circle of friends in earlier seasons, but was changed into a much “nicer”, kinder character starting from season 20 up. She also wasn’t this soft, progressive, pacifistic vegan-type character she is being portrayed as now. What’s up with that?
I am not pointing any fingers or trying to complain about anything, but the South Park fandom (particularly the one that posts frequently on Tumblr) is just... negative to me. I have never seen so many angry, obsessive people arguing over literal animated pieces of cardboard who do not even exist.
The shipping wars are just as toxic, with people trying to shove a pairing down your throat and getting angry at you when you disagree with what they believe. I am also so sick of people fighting over whether Heidi should be with Kyle or Cartman on social media and of seeing hashtags saying “she deserves better”... I just don’t care anymore. It’s old news and not even relevant anymore.
I am am also tired of obsessive fangirls portraying Kyle as if he were some godly saint and making every other character appear like the bad guy. As much as I do like his character, it gets on my nerves when people idealize him for something he’s not. I am tired of every character being portrayed as some good-looking bishounen in fan art when I’m reality, they all (even the girls) look the same, just with different clothing and hairstyles/hats. I am also tired of perverted fan fiction that ages up and sexualizes 10 year olds meant to be in the fourth grade.
Sometimes I miss the days when something was a random show that wasn’t serialized and full of drama, and when half it’s fandom didn’t try to make every other character gay or force a relationship between any character who interacts for like, 5 seconds, in an episode.
I miss the old South Park and its old fans, who actually cared about the series and having a good laugh with the show (sometimes anyway, as I don’t even think it’s funny anymore) rather than sexualizing cartoons and obsessing over whether their ship will become canon or not.
I just had to say what I feel. No hard feelings or offense intended, but this fandom is like a cancer sometimes.
I am not talking about this particular wiki or discussion section, either. I’m just generally speaking.
Just imagine: An episode centered around "Craig and those Guys"
I really want to see that!
What did everybody think of last night's episode "The Problem with a Poo"? Take our Discussions poll below and comment your thoughts on the episode!
Personal Thoughts: Wow... I liked the epsiodes storyline and plot. Especially the PC Principal and Strong Woman parts. The Mr. Hankey parts were funny with the references to Brett Kavanagh in this week's epsiode. But Kyle... Poor Kyle... My God :( I thought that was a pretty upsetting ending to the episode and I think it gives a life lesson, you can't always defend people's actions. In any case I really enjoyed the Simpsons mention at the end and the PC Principal Strong Woman parts, as well as seeing Mr. Hankey again, although he may be off to a new place for good now. Also nice to Heidi is back to normal. All and all I thought this was a good episode and would rate it 8/10 Good Episode!
Do you agree? Let me know!
Warning: this is going to be an extremely long post (as usual), so bear with me. Here goes...
I've noticed that half the fandom of South Park is continuously debating whether Kydi, Heiman, or even Kyman is the better relationship, or conversely, arguing over which is the most toxic of the three. There are several people hating on Cartman for embodying the traits of the typical abuser, whereas others hate on Kyle for apparently being sneaky, selfish, and manipulative for momentarily stealing away Heidi. Some even dislike Heidi for seeming like she victimizes herself too much and gets in the way of other people's ships...
All I am wondering though is where Heidi's parents were before realizing their own daughter was caught up in an emotionally abusive and toxic relationship with a boy from her school. Where were they before they allowed their daughter to become grotesquely overweight and foul-mouthed just like her abuser himself? And with a father as seemingly strong and intimidating as Heidi's appears to be, why didn't he ever try to intervene or put a stop to what was happening to his daughter before it was too late? Where were her Heidi Turner's parents when all this happened, and why didn't they care for or consider the feelings of their daughter more before she became what she did?
This further convinces me that South Park is not only an incredibly unrealistic show (although that is likely intentional, considering it is satirical) full of horribly incompetent, dysfunctional parents who have no clue what goes on in their children's lives, but that Heidi never needed Kyle to save her, or any boy for that matter. What she needed was to love and save herself, and this could have been a much easier task for her to accomplish had she had the support of at least her own parents, among other people.
It is strange to me that neither of Heidi's parents seemed much involved in the situation between herself and the boys, and although it could be they showed some level of concern for her behind the scenes, apparently it wasn't enough to save their own daughter themselves and put a stop to the toxic cycle of victimization and self-hatred she was in.
She was apparently neglected by her own parents who didn't do much to intervene in the toxic situation she was in, was ridiculed by her large group of girlfriends for dating a boy they didn't approve of (which ultimately made her double down and try to prove them wrong) and trapped in a relationship with a passive-aggressive, emotionally abusive boy who was mutually unhappy with her, but didn't have the guts to admit it.
Then the guy who supposedly "liked" her and tried to save her ended up being so offended over her going back to her abuser, who also happens to be his arch rival, that he angrily blamed her for the entire situation, led a movement against Canada that wound up getting a major city in the country nuked (this is South Park, I know), and resentfully told her "he would never have the hots for the person she'd become" without considering her mental state or whether or not she had been manipulated into the situation she was in (this might be justified however by the way she'd been treating him herself, and the fact that they are 10).
The principal and vice principal of the school, school counselor, and pretty much every other adult in the South Park Elementary campus didn't do much more at helping Heidi's situation either. I never thought I would say this but, I feel bad for what has happened to Heidi ultimately, and I feel fans shouldn't judge her so harshly for what happened to her or what she did. She truly didn't have an adequate support system to save her from what she became, and I do hope she ultimately gets better.
Perhaps I am simply looking too much into this, but I feel it is something fans should consider. This thought in mind also makes me feel much more sympathy for Heidi than I ever have in the past (admittedly) since I realized that ultimately, she had no one to help her or to rely on, let alone any person to trust.
The only fault she had in her own situation was in not trusting in her own judgment or loving herself enough to realize she deserved better.
Sometimes I admit that I do take this cartoon show too seriously...
Here you can see Tracer and Grim Reaper from Overwatch
