Now I've seen almost all episodes, and those everything changing/shit -episodes were outstanding! Little emotions there and South Park is suddenly great.

Oh, they finally revealed the DVD cover art for Season 16:


Releases 24th September in Region 1 (exactly one day before Season 17 begins) and 18th September in Region 4. No word on Region 2 yet. frown

I'm also down with that.

Season 15 was alright and I know he helped on that - but I didn't hear anything about his involvement with 16 (the worst season of the show to date).

Season 14 was great and they had Robert Popper as a staff writer then, too - so I think it does seem to impact on the show's quality.

So, it seems like there's going to be a Minecraft episode that makes use of the actual game engine, just as they did with World of Warcraft in "Make Love, Not Warcraft".

I don't really know how to feel about this.

On one hand, it's sort of a cool gimmick. On the other, it's the exact same gimmick that they used last time.


I would link to the promo image that they had on their official website, but it seems to have been taken down for the time being.

I honestly can't find anything about that Minecraft promo you saw cyber turnip. If that actually is going to be an episode, I guess it could be cool to see South Park take on the Minecraft craze and possibly some other video games (would love to see something on GTA 5), but it'd pretty much be exactly the same as Make Love, Not Warcraft's idea. If they manage to use a different plot with just Minecraft graphics shown at times, it could be a cool episode I guess.

Also, here's a promo from South Park's Facebook page.



Maybe there'll be a stop motion episode this Season, or possibly made for a new opening?

People are talking about the TV spots airing on Comedy Central in various other message boards; but they're not online yet as far as I can tell, so I'm only spewing third-hand info. That said, there's allegedly a clip where Randy wakes Stan and asks him how to do something on Minecraft.

I assumed that that image you posted showed the Minecraft game engine at work, although, I haven't played Minecraft, so I might be completely wrong. That's a cropped version of the image I saw, though - in which the people visible at the bottom looked fairly blocky.

But yeah, now that I really look at the image, I think I might have jumped the gun a bit. It's probably from something else entirely - which begs the question, what exactly? It doesn't look like stop-start animation to me and I'm not sure if Trey and Matt would have any desire to do that - especially seeing as South Park was, technically, a stop-start show to begin with.

A new opening might make sense. They tend to update the openings fairly often and I think they've gone the longest they've ever gone without revamping it fully. They've replaced the clips each year, but they've basically been using the same opening since the second half of season 10. It could be part of some flashy opening stuff, such as the CGI that they whacked into the opening of season 4's back-half episodes.

Yeah, I'd take this:



as confirmation that it's from the new opening sequence. Looks like Cartman is singing his part of the opening sequence inside a 3D rendering of the bus. My guess is that it'll start with the first shot that we've seen, zoom in and the various characters will sing their parts.

I like that the 3D style they've gone for, retains the show's origins as being made from cardboard cut-outs.

This does look very promising. I hope this batch of episodes turn out to be as promising as these pictures look. Unlikely though, to be quite honest.

Yeah, I really like how the CGI actually looks somewhat cardboard like instead of being super realistic like some of the CGI models used in the last few Season. I'm very curious for what type of remix they'll do for the South Park theme this time, assuming this actual is a new opening (kind of getting tired of the electric rock theme being used currently)? As for the quality of this Season, I'm expecting alot from it, especially with the fact that Matt and Trey have already came up with 4 episode ideas beforehand and the episodes being produced differently (more use of the other writers, being done in 1 consecutive production). Can't wait to see what will happen.

They normally go into a run of 7 episodes with 2 or 3 ideas in the bank, so I don't know how much stock to put in that.

But I have high hopes for this season. They've taken almost a year off to recharge, they're clearly approaching the show a bit differently this year and they're probably as aware as anyone that season 16 wasn't the greatest. Plus, that figure of 4 episodes came from back when they were promoting The Stick of Truth at E3, right? That was ages ago. They've probably got even more episode ideas by now, and they've probably developed the ones that they do have further than they normally would have done.
And, like you said, they're making more use of the staff writers than they have done in the past.

It could all prove to be exactly the shot in the arm that the show needs.

It'll be nice to see the old opening sequence back again, and the 3D aspect just adds to my excitement.

Nothing about that description sounds remotely interesting, but to be fair, they've hardly given anything away there. It could still be fantastic and I still have high hopes for it.

Clip from Let Go, Let Gov from South Park Studios.

Eh, the plot sounds pretty meh, but I could see it being good if done right. As for the clip, nothing funny, but it might just need to be seen in context.

I assume this episode will be making fun of Edward Snowden? I haven't actually followed the link, but based on the spoiler posted above and the commercial that was broadcasted by CC a few weeks ago, that sure is what it sounds like to me.

The descriptions often sound pretty exciting - but it depends on how exciting of a base premise that the episode has and some great episodes like "Tsst" have very dull base-premises.

They've never been very good at choosing preview clips, either. I think it's just because they give some of the first bits of animation to be completed out, regardless of if it's a good self-contained gag or not.

Edit: I just watched the clip and the concept of a social network that uploads thoughts directly to the internet is actually pretty interesting. I'm surprised they didn't mention that in the plot description.

And sometimes the clip shown doesn't even make it to air

The Cartmam story sounds interesting, but the Butters story sounds a bit boring/strange. Not sure how to feel about it.

I assume it basically means that someone follows Butters on this Twitter parody.

Probably a celebrity that they want to mock.

In the beginning of this episode, Cartman sounds different to me. As did Butters. Pretty decent so far.
