1. Oh my god, I said it TWICE on the last page. October-fucking-19.

2. If we had information on new episodes, wouldn't it have been posted by now?

3. No, their contract has been extended for 3 more years after Season 9. That means it will run for AT LEAST Season 12. There's no guarantee whether or not the show will continue from there, TV show contracts usually don't run longer than 3 years. And "ONLY 3 more seasons?" Dude, South Park has had a longer run than most TV shows out there. Be grateful.

Well, I'm watching them one by one on the comedy network, so I'm getting to them (they actually just started airing season 3). TonightMonday: The Succubus (Crap, I forgot! Friday's are newer episodes... Wait, "Tonight's You Got F*cked In The Ass"! Yay, now this time I'm not recording over it *sigh*, my first re-run...(I've only been watching the show for 3 months) Friday's are a nice break though, because the newer ones kick more ass.)

I love "You Got F**ked In the A**" I watched it when it was on the Comedy Network Friday, and it's one of those episodes that have gotten better with time.

And KurtPikachu, <Joey Styles> Oh my gawd! </JS> At least read the 3 or 4 posts before your's. Jesus Christ.

I think the thing that me laugh the most about that episode was the idea that "getting served" could have medical consequences.  Definitely one of the oddest and funniest episodes.

You're about a week late, Sweetmelly. Already said on Page 4...

As for You Got F**ked in the A**, definitely one of the best Season 8 episodes. It just doesn't feel like any other South Park episode made (maybe a bit like Asspen, I suppose). Really enjoyable episode to watch.  smile

If you ask me all of the episodes of season 8 part 1 (except Goobacks) were good to great.

Goobacks is severely underrated, I thought that was hilarious. Though Up The Down Steroid was VERY average, and The Passion of the Jew was complete and utter shit.

The second half of Season 8 was kind of average and repetitive, with only a few episodes (Quest for Ratings, Woodland Critter Christmas) really only standing out as brilliant.

A memory just came to mind.  I remember on MTV's Total Request Live was in it's infancy, one of the most requested videos was a rap video featuring the South Park kids.  I forget what rapper sang the song.  I remember the video had Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny running around Las Vegas to strip joints, gambling, and making a lot of money.  At the end Kenny gets his own casino and it lands on him and he dies.  Anyone else besides me remember this video? 

Anyway, I thought Goobacks was an okay episode.  Quest for Ratings and Woodland Critter Christmas were the best episodes of season 8.

The video was "Kenny's Dead" by Master P. or someone. It was also featured on the Chef Aid album.

For me, I'd list those in opposite order, I love Mel in TPOTJ.

Note: Season 8's my fave.

I love SP about as much as futurama.  I especially like how both shows focus around a group of main characters, whereas simpsons and family guy usually make homer or peter the main character

I've been watching episodes lately and I've noticed that Cartman is getting more screen time than the other characters. While Cartman is funny as hell I don't like how he's sort of over shadowing the other boys. They should lay off him a bit.I think they also need to lay off Butters a bit as well.

Well put. While it's nice to have episodes focused around Stan, Kenny, Kyle, the entire town and ocassionally Jimmy or Mr. Garrison, Cartman and Butters have become the stars of the show at this point.

The flip side, though, is that Stan and Kyle were really overused at the beginning.  They were evenly split with Cartman, but at the beginning they were such bland, personality-less characters, with Cartman being the only well defined one, so they were sort of overused by default.  Now the characters are all much more unique and well-defined.

And I think there's been plenty of Stan in particular anyway.  I don't know if they've really overfocused on Cartman too much.  I think he's just the easy one to use more since he's the most naturally funny one.  There's probably been somewhat of an overemphasis on Butters, but I don't really care since he's my favorite character.

Stan does have his fair share of episodes totally centred around him (You Got F'ed in the A, Douche & Turd, Woodland Critter Christmas, etc.) and I think it's because he's the most relatable one. While Cartman and Butters are without a doubt the funniest characters, Stan's the normal one, fairly intelligent but still at the level of the other boys. Kyle's like that too, but his points of view are a little more biased, being that he has a shorter fuse with his tolerance towards Cartman, and he's jewish.

I still think the show's at its best when it focusses on the 4 boys as a whole, though (eg. episodes like Wing, Pre-School, ect.). The way those 4 core characters play off eachother has been a staple of the show right from the beginning, even if it has lost a little of its charm since Kyle and Cartman became mortal enemies in Season 5/7-ish (it started in Season 5, but didn't become that big until 7).

Do you think at the possible end, they will use the oh so predictible 'in the future when they are men, they meet each other and see what has changed' template and rip it to shreds?

I can see it now.

Butters isn't overused because he is a good character. Whats really stupid is the whole plots thing in season 6 though. I felt that was the worst season and their it was very stupid having many episodes all about Kennys death, him being born in cartmans body, then a potroast, then suddenly oh yeah where have you been Kenny at the end of season 6. The last two episodes really forgot that Tweek had actually been the replacement and they just said it's the 3 boys. But the start was well played with Butters until the episode where Ms Chokesondik dies. Ironicly the name ended true.

Spy - Season 6 may have had some annoying storylines continuity-wise, but it was still without a doubt the best season the show ever saw. Funniest. Season. Ever.

And GreyThinkyWhale, Tweek is great, but he works much better as a sub-character than a main one. Gnomes still remains one of the best Season 2 episodes, and it was all thanks to Tweek. He lost his humour when he became one of the main 4 for a brief while in Season 6 (and when Matt Stone started voicing him). I still think he was at his funniest in Gnomes, and his character will never top that again.

Did Parker used to do Tweek?  I had no idea they switched his voice.

Yeah, Tweek's better as a side character, but I thought the run where he was with the group was really fun, especcially in "Free Hat" (then again, that episode's just great in general.  I always think of it whenever I see those butchered Star Wars dvds or hear about another horrible "director's cut" of any classic movie.  And it actually did kind of stop the Indiana Jones movies from being butchered for the most part, which was awesome).  It was worthwhile as an experiment because they cut it short before the gimmick got old.

And I thought season six's storylines were great for the most part.  There was some really wildly inventive stuff, and some perfect and hilarious parodies (Star Wars/Raiders, The Simpsons, Black Hawk Down, etc).  It seemed like they were starting to eschew the show's usual formulas more, which was for the better.  One of South Park's greatest strengths is that it constantly reinvents itself.  Just when it starts to get a bit stale, it makes another shift and becomes just as good or even better then ever.

Well, his voice does sound different in Season 6 to how it sounded in Season 2 - I just assumed they switched voice actors, since they switched Matt to Butters when he joined the gang (since Matt & Trey both voice 2 of the main 4 each). Then again, it might just have been the audio software they use to pitch up the children's voices now, not sure if they were using the same one back in Season 2.

I DO know that Tweek had some lines in Season 5 (I'm positive he had a line in the classroom scene of Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants). I may need to go back & re-watch it to see how his voice sounds there.

Hmm...well a lot of the voices have changed subtly over the years, as Parker and Stone get older and also just do the characters a little differently.  Maybe the difference was just more stark with Tweek because he hadn't spoken for a long time at that point.

I actually prefer Tweek in season 6, and I prefer his voice in S6 as well. Gnomes was great though... "We work all day, no time for place, searching for underpants, eh?"

I love his contant twitching, and whenever he says something, it cracks me up: "Gah! Oh Jesus!"

I pre ordered season 6 at Blockbuster today. What does the girl working there do after I pay? She pulls a copy from under the counter, writes my name on it, then says she can't give it to me until Tuesday. IT WAS A FOOT AWAY FROM MY FUCKING FACE!  tongue

Oh well, at least I'm getting it on DVD with Commentary (Up yours, Beamer).  tongue

I myself hadn't really listened to my copy of the album until I went on a long drive to the desert for a trip on the way I listened to the whole album which took very long and various other songs.

Hey aussies did you watch Towlie tonight? I am sort of bored of this one but there were a lot of things I didn't pick up in the other viewings. Mostly quotes by Towlie because I really listened in. Then I evaluated the situation. Sure we know he's a towel that smokes marijuana but when you think about it it really seems like an odd storyline even for South Park.

I think that was the point.  They were kind of making fun of themselves and, more so, Comedy Central's advertising hype of it.  Whenever they had a new character Comedy Central would do a huge promotion for them and put out all this merchandise and such, so to parody it Parker and Stone came up with the stupidest character they possibly could (a talking towel....that smokes pot) and put fake ads into the episode for Towelie crap.  Ironically now they market Towelie crap a lot.

Newhook_1: Who the fuck is Scraecrow?  roll eyes

The whole joke with Towelie is a comment on the hold videogames have on children. The entire episode's storyline is similar to that of a videogame - and yet the boys don't give a shit at all, they just want to get their Okama Gamesphere and play videogames, despite the fact that the situation they're already in should be just as exciting to them. Such as when the boys finally get their Gamesphere back, you hear one of them say "Oh, cool, a parachute level!" despite the fact they were JUST parachuting in real life a few minutes earlier and couldn't care less.
