Storyline

Presented by "A British Person", this episode looks at the background of the character Pip, in the form of a South Park version of "Great Expectations". Young Pip, having first been employed in the service of Miss Havisham, an insane heiress, learns that an unknown person has paid to have him sent to a fine boarding school so that he may be raised as a gentleman. After finishing his schooling he returns to visit Miss Havisham, whom he believes was his mysterious benefactor. Only now does he learn what the woman's true intentions were, at which point the story separates completely from the original Dickens novel. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

There's no point
2 July 2018 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

This episode focuses entirely on Pip and features none of the other main characters. I could have sworn that was Anthony Hopkins talking but it was actually Malcolm McDowell. I admit to knowing nothing about the book "Great Expectations". I can assume this at least somewhat resembles it. There were definitely some good jokes there like the baby bunnies. The episode itself was at least creative.

The weirdest thing was how they just mostly got rid of Pip after this as he had speaking lines in only two subsequent episodes. Why did Trey Parker and Matt Stone go through all this trouble with a character they were going to get rid of anyway? They realized Butters worked better as a character everyone picked on. I mean, this really just has no reason to exist at all. It's probably the worst episode in the entire series. I think it's even worse than the Terrance and Phillip one. **
