In the boys’ plot, Kyle bemoans the popularity of Let’s Play celebrities, becoming the old guy who doesn’t understand the kids’ way of having fun. This is a very good joke, culminating in the creeping indicator of irrelevance, “We’re not grandpas, your generation’s stuff is just seriously lame.” The confusion at watching other people paly video games (and subsequent death of the living room) is smart. But it also gets run into the ground a bit over the course of the episode, especially as Cartman (sorry, CartmanBrah) takes off. His presence as a floating chat box, eternally commenting but never physically in the room, is just plain weird, a breaking down of the rules of reality that’s unusual even for this show, and is probably overused just a tad.
Kenny gets the boys full attention at how he excels at playing the game Magic: The Gathering. But a new hard-core activity gets in the way, as Wendy tries to get Stan to pay attention to her. She soon realizes he will only do what his guy friends want to do first. Meanwhile Randy develops a new skill set, as he discovers illegal goings-on in the basement of City Wok.
Butters is sitting at home on the computer doing Butters stuff when Cartman comes in saying how bored he is. Butter lets it slip that his father has a drone. Cartman gets extremely excited and just has to see it. So for some reason Butters shows him. And as expected, Cartman takes it and tells Butters to meet him later that night. Later that night, Butters meet him. Cartman makes sure that he wasn’t followed and Butters insured him that he want. Cartman says good and then tells him that he told Kenny because if there’s a drone he just has to tell Kenny. Cartman uses the drone and goes to Craig’s house and accidentally sees Craig’s mom’s enormous bush. Craig’s dad catches him and goes to Butter’s house and blames him because he is the only one with a drone. They check the garage and the drone is there. Which freaks out Butter’s dad.
