South Park Season 22 Episode 8 Recap
In the previous episode of South Park, the town of South Park renegotiated their deal with ManBearPig and he agreed to leave the town alone for the foreseeable future. What does this next installment have in store? Let’s find out as we recap South Park season 22 episode 8 ‘Buddha Box!’
Psychiatry Is Important
Cartman was at the psychiatrist’s office, where he was trying to rationalize ManBearPig;s existence and that Black Panther was not as good of a film as everyone says it was. He also couldn’t deal with people wanting him to get off of his phone. The psychiatrist diagnosed Cartman with anxiety and remarked how common anxiety was among the youth. PC Principal checked on Vice Principal Strong Woman. He urged her to place their children in daycare, but she refused. Later that day, Cartman paraded through town and demanded that everyone leave him alone in order to assuage his anxiety. Cartman saw an ad for a new product, Buddha Box. The Buddha Box projected your phone screen inches from your face and was outfitted with noise cancelling headphones. Cartman quickly ordered a Buddha Box and wore it to school the next day.
Throughout the school day, Cartman attempted to wear his Buddha Box, but was reprimanded by his teacher. He was sent to PC Principal’s office and quickly managed to convince PC Principal of the joys of Buddha Box. PC Principal quickly ordered a Buddha Box for both himself and Strong Woman. At their house, the couple became attached to using their Buddha Boxes often and started to ignore their children.
The PC children quickly escaped from their home and began to ravage the town with their PC insight. They first interrupted people at the local bar and managed to get some troublesome drinks removed from the menu. PC Principal and Strong Woman noticed that their children had run away and went out to locate them. The psychiatrist held a seminar at the Community Center to help people deal with their anxiety ridden loved ones. Strong Woman and PC Principal went to the police station for help finding their children.
Changes To Enact
The children went to the water park and Kyle was continually angry with Cartman for his use of the Buddha Box. Kyle told Cartman that every normal person dealt with some bit of anxiety and Cartman realized he had to go do something to let everyone know how to deal with anxiety. Cartman dressed up as a Buddhist monk and went to the City Council and attempted to convince the Mayor to raise government funds to buy everybody a Buddha Box. The PC pair found their children at the local radio station, before they decided to hold a PTA meeting. At the PTA meeting, PC Principal and Strong Woman announced their new plan to ban phone and Buddha Box usage at school.
