This episode sucked. They could have done a lot with this kind of story, but they decided to hit us over the head again and again with the same idea. There was no build up to the story, since the first mention of sex addiction we saw how it was going to end. No real start, no buildup, no climax. The "moral" of the story wasn't even that good or well thought out. The end of the episode didn't even do anything to improve upon the idea that they were trying to put out. usually there is a point to the metaphysical parts of this series, and they could have done something with the aliens, but they decided to put together a throwaway prepackaged ending that only stopped the story when the time ran out, instead of improving upon their ideas.
Usually this series is OK, but if this season goes on like this, I don't see how they can continue their popularity. There are other shows that only give the surface dark jokes on issues, South Park usually goes a little deeper than them.
