That's not what it was about though, it was about Apple being able to do anything through their terms and conditions. So, it was actually very current. The comedy awards they were lampooning aired a couple weeks ago. I agree that it was better when they didn't have to make a topical reference every show, but you can't say that it's stale news they are making fun of.

Not always. Some stuff stays relevant long enough to make an episode about it, and sometimes they're super rapid in throwing stuff together (like the Saddam and election episodes). But late night comedians had been making fun of Jersey Shore for like a solid year by the time that one came out. When they did the internet phenomenon one, most of the internet fads that appeared had already become older than top hats. Hell, Britney Spears was already on a career rebound by the time they made an episode about how crazy she is.

My main gripe is the fact that everything's gotta be a reference. Can't have original characters in an original setting anymore doing any original stories. It's ironic that they accused Family Guy a few years ago of being overformulaic, when they do pretty much the same thing.

Eh, I didn't love it. I'm not watching the show so I can see some random side characters and a bit of Kyle. None of the main ones were really in the episode at all.

If the random side characters are Butters, Randy Marsh, or sometimes Jimmy then the episodes can be great

This is generally the rule of thumb. More Butters, more Randy, and a lot of Cartman = success.

truth, butters and randy are probably the two best characters on the show. mr mackey and mr garrison are also better characters than pretty much everyone else except cartman.
