Well that was...incoherent.

Barely touched upon the Season's plots, and with PC Principal still around, I guess this is continuing into Season 20? Ugh.

Slightly better than #HappyHolograms, in that I could follow what was happening in the end (though rushed as hell). Some decent laughs, but...yeah, if T&M are gonna keep this continuity thing going, they really need to plan farther ahead if they want these finale eps to make any sense, even if it means at the cost of their "timely" refs.

That was really weak.

I guess it's okay that they're gonna continue this into Season 20, but really? We have to wait until September 2016? For what, exactly? We didn't get too many answers. And the conclusion to Leslie was really lame. And was Mackey behind everything, or just another pawn in a higher person/being/group's game? That wasn't made too clear.

Trey & Matt should probably stop with this continuity thing until they can work out how to end one properly. hmpf

You guys are crazy, that was really good.

I love how it tied together all the themes and subjects examined over the season, and I loved the ultimate point it was making (or what I felt it was making, anyway): Condemning fraudulent political correctness made in the interest of self-gain or appearing "better" to others, while championing genuine political correctness in the name of social progression, if only because many of those on the other end of the argument are gun-toting lunatics with ideals we do move forwards from. Turning PC Principal from the villain to the hero was a bold move, but really the only move they could've taken - acknowledging that, in spite of their apprehensions about many of the people championing the PC cause (and their motives for doing so), South Park does need to adapt to fit in with today's times - albeit in their own cautious way. This is essentially the less cynical version of "You're Getting Old/Assburgers" - with those episodes being the show acknowledging that it wants to mature but being unsure as to how, whereas this season was the show acknowledging that it needs to mature, and showing us it's willing.

It wasn't the funniest episode of the show, no, but I think it was one of the smartest they've had in a while, and this season was a major success on the whole. And I'm stoked that my two favourite elements of it (PC Principal and the Garrison/Jenner campaign) are going to remain next year. big grin

What the heck happened with Jimmy? He didn't come into play at the end at all.

I enjoyed it, but I'm really frustrated that it was so rushed and full of loose ends when the previous episode was such a load of filler. They should have started their "finale" in the previous episode and just treated the two episodes like a 45-minute ending.

Anyway, it was pretty weak given what it could have been and given how strong "Sponsored Content" was, but I'd say it was a solid ending to the best season in years. I'm pretty excited to see them continue things into season 20, but I really hope that they have a coherent, well-planned end-game in mind for things, this time that beautifully ties everything together.

Overall, I'd still call season 19 a huge success.
