      Being one of the newer episodes of South Park, Guitar Queero plays into the same self enhanced stereotypes the writers of the show have been playing into for a while. While the plot is clear enough, it relies too heavily on the subject matter to make it interesting and funny. Of course, the subject matter in this episode is the video game Guitar Hero, where plastic

      controllers are used to simulate guitar playing, so the plot is already a bit too thin.

      The episode revolves around Stan and Kyle being good at the game, and trying to break their own personal record. When they do, they are approached by a record company to record a deal, and to break a million points at the local arcade. The story is your typical band story,


      • with all the elements that made those good, but using a video game instead of actual music.

        The problem is that this is the only thing that the plot relies on. It is simply just a band story, where one goes solo, becomes unhappy, and they reunite at the end, but with a video game. At no point in the episode is anything else expanded upon, and

        you know how it is going to end long before it does. It seems like the writers simply wanted to make this kind of nostalgia piece, rather than come up with anything original, and the episode suffers for it.

        Overall, this is not the most terrible episode ever created, but it was one where they could have done so much more, but opted to do so little.
