Yeah, I'd agree that it's an easy best of the season so far but it was still guilty of running a small selection of jokes into the ground and feeling a bit like an uneasy mixture of ideas but the second half of this season is off to a far better start than the first half.

Brilliant episode, possibly the best of Season 16 (so far, anyway...). big grin

The Bane impressions were hilarious, spot on. And I started to laugh hard when everyone's insecurity systems started going off at the same time. laff

this episode was a bit of a letdown, I would've liked it more if it focussed primarly on te four kids having to deal with Butters being a crazy/out of control asshole

"Going Native" was weak but they've done far worse in the past. I can live with it.

I hope this week's is good. It's been a while since we got a Halloween special so that'll be fun - not that it has any real impact on anything.

"A Nightmare on Face Time" was hilarious, think it's the best of Season 16 (so far). The Blockbuster/The Shining comparison was great, Kenny FUCKING SPOKE MULTIPLE TIMES (nerdgasm on my part) and although I hate to like this song, Gangnam Style was in it. GangnamStein was great too. laff

This was another "planned" episode (an episode the crew started before the second-half of Season 16 began to air), which goes to show if they had more time maybe we'd be getting much less shitty eps.

One last point, when the ep was first revealed the title said "Facetime", but now it's been changed to "Face Time", any reason why I wonder?

Obviously some kind of copyright is on Facetime. They're probably trying to avoid a lawsuit.

A Scause for Applause had to be the worst south park episode I have ever seen. I didn't even watch the whole thing. It's down there with Breast Cancer Show Ever.

Scause for Applause was utterly terrible on pretty much every level. It started out quite promisingly with the whole set up of people being upset about Lance Armstrong only for it to be Jesus, but everything was just awful. The Dr. Seuss stuff was a complete misfire and not even done well or consistently. The jokes were stretched to the max, as is usual for the show these days. The finale with Jesus was just... utter shit. And this is from someone who's always hated those armbands and thought they were stupid.

Wow! I really like South Park,if I had to make a top 10 or 5 about my favorite shows,obviously SP would have a place, is amazing how after long time the show stills being good or at least enjoyable, unlike other shows *cofTheSimpsonscof*

But this season, I have mixed feelings about it  some episodes are really good but others uh...good luck for the next time  roll eyes

I haven't seen the newest episode,but seems like something really big and great ,well usually almost all the episodes about Cartman are really good! but talking about the past episode "A Scause for Applause",was really bad...I didn't bother to see it the full episode,same happened with "Going Native" and "Insecurity" (yeah,I know everyone LOVED it,but I don't know why but I didn't like it).

And now the episodes that I really liked this season were (a top 5):
1.Cartman Finds Love (That ending kills me  laff)
2.Raising The Bar
3.Faith Hilling
4.A Nightmare on Face Time ( even if the gangam style thing annoyed me,the rest was really good! Cartman dressed as Honey Boo Boo...er I mean Hulk was great big grin)
5.I Should Have Never Gone Zipling ( because the Live Action)

and I really hope be able to see the last episode of the season today,but sure was a very ok season, I can't wait for the next year!

I think you're both pretty cool.  Don't worry about that shit too much, it wears off with time.  Just always be concerned with being interested and interesting.  Learn new things, find things you enjoy, practice things you think are cool, and always have a good time within reasonable boundaries.  It's alright to take risks, but try not to be a dick too much in life; instead try to be the opposite and sometimes be a dick.  After this phase in life you're in, people will learn to love you.  You'll be great because of all the things you learned and practiced, and you'll enjoy life for every moment that it is; that's what people are searching for, and they'll cling to it.  You'll be the awesome individual that loves hearing other people's conversations, and they'll all want to hear your input too.  Try never to compromise, but it's usually okay to be quiet... go in quiet and get the guns blazing only when it's necessary.

You won't just be fine in life... you'll be great at it even when the cards are fucked.  It takes a long time to create your opinions, but go with them, and try to evaluate them from as many perspectives as possible.  It'll give you the ability to defend yourself and define why you have the opinions you do, so you can explain them to yourself, and you'll be shoulders above the rest.  Safety not guaranteed!

Just saw Obama Wins. One of the best episodes of the season and still a poor mess with increasingly Family Guy-esque writing.

This has been an awful season of the show. Easily the worst that they've ever produced. It's still decent TV for the most part, but there were some very poor episodes this year and not one particularly great episode to make up for it.

I'd prefer it if they cancelled commercials.

It's all well and good for us to complain about the quality of a show when all we do is sit on the couch and watch it. I couldn't think up a good story if I was being stabbed repeatedly in the gut by an angry gazelle. That being said, I don't think people should keep trying to create something they're no longer fully invested in just for money. Just like real life, it seemed people put more effort into making a good story when they had to spend more time and effort making animations. As technology started doing more and more of the work, people forgot how to think. hmpf Or maybe there just isn't enough decent shit to make fun of anymore, what with nothing having really changed much in the past 5 years at the very least. Everything in life is just war, reality TV, Batman movie, war, sex scandal, reality TV, Batman.

I think Matt and Trey should start giving themselves more time to do an episode. It's gotta be tough coming up with an entire 23 minute show in 7 days and it clearly shows in most episodes that they are being rushed.

I sort of agree with you but it's definitely not always the case. South Park only used to take a long amount of time to produce in the first few seasons. I'd say season 8 is probably the best season of the show and, at any rate, the show was still completely golden up until season 10 - and they produced those with just as much ease as they do now (more or less).

I think Matt and Trey should start giving themselves more time to do an episode. It's gotta be tough coming up with an entire 23 minute show in 7 days and it clearly shows in most episodes that they are being rushed.
I completely agree with this. Matt and Trey used to be able to rush out absolute gems but they haven't shown much evidence of being able to do so in years. The last truly fantastic episodes of South Park by my reckoning were probably 200/201 and those were 2 of their episodes planned in advance and where production began on them before the start of the season. Before that, it was Imaginationland, which again had a huge deal of prep time compared to most South Park episodes, with them even animating some of the scenes in the Summer before the 2nd run of the year began when they thought it might be a film.
I've not seen The Book of Mormon yet but word of mouth is fantastic and I can certainly vouch for its soundtrack as something that must, surely be amazing - and they've spent years bringing that to fruition. So it's not like they haven't got the ability to make good stuff, anymore, I just don't think they can do it like they used to. The episodes are seeming increasingly lazy, slapdash, messy and thrown together and I can't imagine it's down to anything other than their lightning-fast turnaround.

Thanks to MuchAdo for the heads-up on this one.

ĎSouth Parkí Season 17 Shortened to 10 Episodes, Will Not Be Split

So Season 17 starts near the end of September, meaning Trey, Matt & the crew will have way more time than usual to focus hard on each ep, hopefully we'll be seeing a rise in quality. big grin

Yeah, hopefully it'll lead to a rise in quality, though I have the feeling that it won't, at all.

I doubt they'll do much prepping and it'll still be a bunch of rushed episodes like usual.

Still, it's a sign that they're making room for other projects, which is great. I'd love to see more films and stage shows from them.

It's going to be weird not having South Park to look forward to in Spring :-/. They still appear to be giving themselves a week to them complete an episode and I think it will be even harder to work for 10 weeks in a row.

I've now been watching first 8 seasons of South Park. I really didn't like it before, but if I just forget about "continuity", "sense" and "not exaggerate", South Park really is funny. I like to think that the point of South Park is that it parodies itself. That way I can enjoy it.

Usually plot is surprising (I mean totally absurd, it doesn't even surprise it surprises), but sometimes easily predictable.
