That takes it to 20 seasons!

SO. MUCH. EXCITEMENT. big grin

Also, I don't wanna risk sharing Eric Rogers' tweets in the "It's got a TV!" section after last time, but this is so true:

Okay, @ComedyCentral, u picked up #SouthPark for 85 more seasons... do the same for #Futurama & no one gets hurt! 4 more seasons will work!

I was going to say something similar to Eric in this thread but I guess he beat me to the punch.

But yeah, here's a Simpsons comparison. It's not unthinkable that South Park might run longer than The Simpsons at this point. Obviously, The Simpsons will have more episodes, but they're only 5 greenlit seasons behind The Simpsons now and The Simpsons is on somewhat thin ice.

"The Poor Kid" was fantastic. Best episode of season 15 for my money.

I'd honestly like to see South Par surpass the Simpsons (kind of unlikely). Trey and Matt deserve that redit way more than Matt groening

awesome season finale.  Great to see Kenny's siblings--forgot he even had siblings--I also love that Kenny really cares for his little sister.  The ending just came out of nowhere, but I was like "eh, Kenny will wake up the next day and no one will remember."

That was a great episode, the more Kenny the better. And Cartman wasn't actually super annoying in this one. big grin

I like how Stan and Kyle were worried about losing Kenny, for once they acknowledged him a little more, and as we saw in "You're Getting Old", Stan and Kyle reflect Trey and Matt, so it's nice to see they still care about him. love

I wouldn't really look too far into that. Kenny's a prop for the most part, they only acknowledge him when he has a purpose to serve the plot. Let's not forget they're the ones who tried to kill him off permanently 9 years ago.

Anyway, the Thanksgiving episode was one of the funniest things I've seen in ages. As for the finale, just... Wow. In terms of style, plot and humour, that was seriously a PERFECT blend of the old-school episodes and the new ones. Excellent finale. I'm also stoked about the show's renewal. big grin

FOR STUFFING!!!

See, this is what I don't like. Kenny has a lot of fans. He's an iconic character. He's (supposed to be) one of the main characters. HE APPEARS IN THE INTRO DAMMIT.

But who do we get? Butters. Fucking Butters. I don't mind Randy, but Butters... no no

I wish they'd just use Kenny as much as they use Butters, it's not fair at all. frown

And? A lot of characters appear in the intro. You're pretty damn limited when you have a character who the audience can't understand. Kenny basically has two aspects to his personality: He's poor and he's perverted. Though granted, the Mysterion storyline has added a lot more depth to him - again, because you can finally hear for sure what he's saying. But this was all later additions, it's not like they went into the show planning to slowly develop Kenny over the last 13 years. Matt and Trey wanted to permanently get rid of him in season 6 - the only reason they brought him back was at Comedy Central's request. Why? Because he sells merchandise.

And it makes sense to use Butters more often, he's a far more well-developed character, and he's the perfect person to play against the boys, particularly Cartman. Basic rule of comedy: Polar opposites = Humour. This is why the Butters/Cartman episodes are usually so good. I understand you may have some sentimental attachment to Kenny, but from a writing perspective, Butters is where the good material is at. I'd still classify both as supporting characters - Kenny gets the same amount of focus in the show as, say Jimmy or Mr. Mackey. Just because he's "part of the main 4" doesn't mean Matt and Trey are obliged to use him constantly. He's about as prominent as Maggie is in The Simpsons, and she's technically a main character. And appears in the intro. But again, you can't do much with a character the audience can't understand.

Anyway, to conclude. I really don't have a problem with the amount Matt and Trey use him. When they DO come up with a good Kenny story, his episodes can be amazing. Look at Best Friends Forever. If they kept trying to utilise him just for the sake of it, you'd get sick of him. It's the same reason they stopped killing him off every episode.

Let's not forget that after Kenny died "permanently" he was replaced by Timmy in the intro and he's a prop character as well.

Analysing the show has made quite a few episodes mean a LOT more to me because of it. Like all good satires, it has layers. For those who want to enjoy it on the surface level, they can. For those (eg. myself) who get off on picking things like this apart, we can too. smile

Let's not forget that after Kenny died "permanently" he was replaced by Timmy in the intro and he's a prop character as well.

I think that was more for the purposes of obscuring the third line in the theme song as per tradition. Just having the word "Timmy" over and over again pretty much serves the same purpose as having Kenny sing a muffled line. They cycled through a few line-ups of characters that season too, and eventually came to just settle on the three boys interacting with whatever may come their way that particular episode. Which is basically what the show had already become by that point, anyway. The show pretty much has three main characters now in my eyes, and has pretty much for the past ten years, at least. Kenny's just utilised as the fourth now because we're so used to that idea of "the four boys." It's fan service and nothing more.

I know that, I was just pointing out the fact that Timmy was in the intro at one point but he wasn't a main character, since Danny seemed to think that Kenny has to have an important role in every episode since he's in the intro.

Just to clarify, Kenny is my favourite character but he is essentially a prop character most of the time. In fact, Matt and Trey refer to him as a prop character in one of the audio commentaries.

Got the South Park Episode Guides, Volume 1 and 2, for Xmas. Vol 1 is Seasons 1-5 and Vol 2 is Seasons 6-10. Very interesting, funny, etc. Love all the "Where the idea came from" sections, if you're a big fan of the show I'd recommend getting them.

Hopefully they'll release Vol 3 now Season 15 is over. big grin

Season 16 starts on the 14th March in the US, so I imagine it will begin on the 23rd March in the UK with a double bill of S16E01 and S16E02.

Yup.

Except there's the off-chance that we'll get a 15-episode season at some point due to Comedy Central demanding another Christmas special.
