This episode did not disappoint. The initial set-up was a little much, with gross name after gross name, but once the direction was clear, the humor bloomed. There were certainly low points, but the writing continues to be true to the characters' personalities, and that's what works best for this series. Plus, it's been a while since they had a get-rich-quick scheme, and those are generally goldmines.
also, um, so I've invested in several Kickstarter projects and never thought about how the website makes 5% on every funded project and does nothing but host the pages companies and individuals create to raise money. I am thoroughly impressed with Kickstarter at the moment!
Meanwhile, the NFL team owners agree to come together and force Cartman's Washington Redskins to change their name and logo, but Cartman unveils the Redskins head with a profile of male and female body parts. [figures.] In retaliation, the football team takes over Kickstarter, causing havoc the night before Cartman's company is set to receive their raised funds. [ha!] Cartman thinks Kyle is the guilty party, but Stan points out that they just need to start over so they all merge back together to try to become the next Kickstarter. But, GoFundYourself's model is that others do all the work and then just give them 5%. [so, effectively, worse than how Kickstarter works.] But, it turns around and bites them when nobody buys into it and resents the guys.
