I miss back when there was really good consistency in South Park episodes. Season 8 was perfect, consistent, and by far my favorite season. But this? It was a 6/10 for me.

I hate people judging an entire Season when we're only 2-3 episodes in... It can get better... There's still 12-11 episodes left...

I lost a lot of faith and enjoyment of South Park during the first few episodes of Season 15. Stinker after stinker. Then we got "You're Getting Old". Wow.

And then after the mid-series break, the episodes got much, much better, and my faith was restored. Relax people, give the show a chance...

I quite enjoyed the cat on stage "debating" with the republican candidates, but that's a one-shot gag. Rest of the episode was incredibly meh. Meh, I say! Meh!!

First episode I've disliked since the "Slash isn't real" episode, but after a few watches I liked that, I doubt I will ever like this episode.

This episode started off quite good in the first 5 minutes with the trains hitting all the young adults, but the rest was really "meh".

Very disappointing after how amazing the first two episodes were this season. I guess 16 seasons in, not every episode will be a 9 or 10/10 episode. frown.

The train gag was so cheap it almost like the joke was making fun of how cheap a gag it was.

I liked it. The ending was a little cheesy. The train part wasn't though.

Faith Hilling is cool. Don't get why this ep got so much negative reception.

And was Kenny scared about doing old memes cause there was a risk of death, or just cause he didn't want to be unpopular? The first option seems cooler...

Because he can still feel pain... To quote Mysterion/Kenny:

The Human Kite: "I think it'd be pretty cool not to die."

Mysterion: "Pretty cool?! Do you know what it feels like to be stabbed? To be shot? Decapitated? Torn apart? Burned? Run over?!"

Actually watched the episode two more times, I'm not keen on the plot, but there are alot of laugh out loud funny parts of it than a lot of other episodes.

Among the worst of the worst for me. I haven't read many reviews, but from what I gather everyone was like "OMG SOUTH PARK ARE DOING MEMES I'M SO HAPPY". It wasn't that brilliant. I must admit, after watching the episode I did bread my cat...



...but other than that it has no staying power in my mind.


And I do agree that season 8 is by far the most perfect to date. It's one of only two seasons I have on DVD.

A lot of people on the South Park Studios forums are complaining about yet another Cartman/Butters episode, and that Trey seems to think putting them together = automatic comedy. hmpf

I'll start by saying:


Okay. In all honesty, is this the beginning of the end of South Park? Sure, we can keep telling ourselves "it's not true, they're renewed until season 20!" but ultimately Matt and Trey have the power to do whatever they want with it, even ending the series.

It's happening guys, the South Parkopalypse. Time to lower your standards and pray for a good episode.

I love it. The show is 16 seasons in, Matt and Trey are getting bored, why shouldn't they just start fucking shit up? If that's the only way they can keep it fresh, then they should do it. I'd love to see the show go out with all hell breaking loose.

True. Well, if that's the direction they're going in, I want them to fuck shit up even more! The boys splitting up into different social groups, perhaps new romance, killing off Kyle's mum (oh god please).

Plot for the final episode ever:

A meteor hits Earth, killing everyone instantly, except for Kenny, who must now roam a post-meteocalyptic planet looking for any traces of life.

This isn't serious BTW. If you thought it was, get out.

Wow, fan reaction for this week's episode is overwhelmingly negative and as far as I can tell, it's just because they don't like the way they made Cartman Jewish.

I'm with Josh, good on them for rocking the boat.

I mean, it's most likely that he'll revert back to normal after a story-arc or possibly even in next week's episode, anyway. But so what? It's going to give them a lot of new material to play with so fair dos.

As for the episode itself... meh. Nothing hugely special or hugely awful. It just was.

As a half-Jew/half-Christian (as far as my family goes at least, personally I'm agnostic) who celebrates Passover and Easter (and am doing so this weekend right after one another), I was highly amused by it. The "poor frogs" joke in particular tickled me quite a bit.

One guy said:

"South Park is more and more turning into a soap opera, with all that relationship stuff, depressed Stan etc. Shure, this had always a part in South Park, but back then it still was funny. The new episodes just don't feel fresh anymore. And the worst thing for me: South Park is turning into Family Guy. For example that scene in Reverse Cowgirl with that guy fapping in front of the monitors for 5 hours (at least it felt that long).

I don't really blame M&T. They have made so many great episodes, I would have run out of ideas years ago in their place."

I still think that for a 16th season, the quality is really good. It can have a Simpsons run in my opinion. Anyway, the latest episode was good in my opinion, and I really liked Kyle's role in it and the Bigfoot hunters. Solid episode, and definitely an 8/10.

The thing with South Park is, many of it's plots are based on real-world situations and take the piss out of them all the time, so the show could go on forever.

"And the worst thing for me: South Park is turning into Family Guy."

This has been said of so many animated shows over the years. It was never a productive comment then and it's not a productive comment now. It's just a dumb thing to say.

As for the "soap opera" stuff, I know what they're talking about. So far this season there's been a lot of those emotional scenes with piano over them. It seems pretty obvious to me that Matt and Trey are doing them in a joking way, though, purposely trying to make them seem forced and out of place. I'm not sure if they're building up to anything, but I wouldn't be surprised.

I have to say, the fapping scene in Reverse Cowgirl didn't remind me of Family Guy at all. hmpf

However, Robo-Leela screaming at her arm in Rebirth did, weird...

Whilst I agree with the sentiment, I need to point out that South Park has only run for 226 episodes which is as many as The Simpsons had if you stop counting after season 10. And I mean... seasons 1-10 of The Simpsons trumps seasons 1-16 of South Park.

No Danny. Cyber is 100% right. Not only was the Simpsons super funny, but it changed Tv over those years more than any other show. The satire was perfect and the characters were so well done.

But South Park pushed the boundries and limits of what was allowed to be shown on TV (remember, it started in 1997) and isn't scared to touch upon topics and situations from the real world that can cause some real offense/damage/controversy.

Yes but Simpsons humor has always been better. South Park has never been a joke every 10 seconds show, but more of a Wait For it, Wait For it, BAM! The Simpsons used a great mix of satire and some slapstick. Please Danny, buy Simpsons Season 4, it's my favorite season and it's pure genius. Also I forgot: Their quirky humor was always at it's peak. the Simpsons is the greatest show ever, and as great as South Park is, it will never be as good as The Simpsons once was. Never.

I personally agree with cyber_turnip. If we're comparing seasons 1-10 of The Simpsons (which is basically everything that didn't suck, give or take a couple seasons) and all episodes of South Park (which I would say hasn't started sucking yet, at least not at the level that The Simpsons did when it started to) as collective wholes, Simpsons wins simply because the not-as-good seasons/episodes of The Simpsons in that lot are better than the not-as-good seasons/episodes of South Park.

If you were comparing just the glory years of each show, though, that would be a harder question. Seasons 4-8 of The Simpsons (119 episodes) and seasons 5-12 of South Park (116 episodes). Both are almost equally brilliant and hilarious.

I don't agree with SGB that South Park was never and will never be as good as The Simpsons was. While The Simpsons will always be my favorite of the two, I still would consider their peak seasons on par with each other, each with their own distinct style of satire and humor.

So hey, let's not turn this into a full-on South Park vs. Simpsons debate. Let's just agree that both their peak seasons were better than Family Guy's. And let's definitely not talk about where Futurama comes into all this.

I agree with Josh on everything there except the glory years. I found Seasons 3-9 to be the Glory Years on The Simpsons.

Personally for me it's 4-10. I just wanted to take a relatively equal amount of episodes of the show in the middle of their peak eras for the sake of comparison.

Oh I see now. Obviously it's easier to compare with the same amount of episodes. But I still think that's another thing that makes the Simpsons better. The Simpsons had a longer peak (Episode wise).

But so did The Simpsons (remember, it started in 1989). And they weren't scared of touching on topics and situations that could cause controversy, either - they just didn't go after it as violently. I adore South Park, I really do - but The Simpsons in its prime is just... well, it even gives Futurama a run for its money - that's how good it is.

Also, South Park has the luxury of being on cable and not on a major network channel. The Simpsons had to be more subtle and safe when they lampooned stuff, which also meant they had to be more clever.
