Woody sets the park on fire in an effort to impress the visiting Secretary of the Interior.
Steve and Denzel are best friends who run this bitch! But, when Woody sounds the alarm the rangers learn that the Secretary of the Interior Kirk Sanders is coming to town and Brickleberry needs to be turned into tip top shape. Unfortunately, Denzel is feeling down about the fact that he’s the only black guy in town and everyone looks at him funny or screams epithets. Steve isn’t exactly the most politically correct either but shit hits the fan when Woody’s pane flies over head dumping gas which causes a nearby fire to go wild and caused immense skin damage to both Denzel AND Steve. The result? Denzel is white and Steve is black! You would think this is weird, but actually only Denzel thinks it is because Steve is THRILLED to be black and he quickly gains the attention of all the downtown ladies. Denzel on the other hand has to deal with the shit storm that is Starbucks which becomes way too overbearing. Unfortnately, Steve finds out that racism is alive and well and decides to be an activist for civil rights which sends Denzel into a frenzy nearly killing his former best friend. To fight back, Denzel gets some of the local folk to get back at Steve once and for all which includes them dressing up in bed sheets and speeding around town in a pick up truck (think late 60s Mobile, AL). Eventually, the locals grab Steve and throw him in the truck and threaten to hang him, but Denzel starts to feel bad and decides to stop the execution. Thankfully, Woody flies overhead and causes another explosion this time turning Steve into a Mexican and Denzel into a mummy1
Not everyone is thrilled to be seeing Kirk Sanders, including Connie of whom used to serve under him in the Armed Forces. After causing a huge forest fire, Kirk is going nuts and swears he will find the culprit (of whom is Woody) but worse yet he recognizes Connie! Later, Woody is trying to cover his tracks from Kirk to make sure he never finds out about the fire but Ethel thinks this could show Kirk that Connie isn’t the screw up she was when she was in the Seals. As such, Connie and Ethel break into Kirk’s cabin and steals any evidence he has but the former Corporal wakes up and starts screaming shit at Connie causing her to come uncoiled in her contraption and kill him instantly! But, no one can find out!
Another great episode of Brickleberry! Granted I do think South Park has had Cartman do something to similar to what Steve does, but its never been a roles reversal kind of thing where a black man has to see the horrors of being a white dude. Trust me, it ain’t easy! That said, Brickleberry is really starting to come up with some unique and well thought out plots that range from workplace scenarios to straight up Chappelle’s Show type of humor that should help appease the loss of anyone who was a fan! Unfortunately, the Connie and Ethel plot comes up a bit short in the laughs department and really only serves as a device to set up Woody torching the forest and Malloy was almost non-existent. That said, it was great week at the park!
