I watch it all the time (I'm a huge South Park fan). I'd probably have to say Towelie or Professor Chaos. My favourite main character is Stan though. Go Stan!

I have sold my soul fo the opportunity to meet matt stone and trey parker. Im not going to get into detail but suffice to say that my love for southpark surpasses that for anything else. Yes it may be hard to accept for futurama fans, futurama is better but southpark us more significant. It challenges in ways futurama doesn't . This doesn't detract from futurama's greatness or how much i love it. But there has to be a respect for Southpark and the message/s that it sends. I may be heavily inebriated right now but all i can finish with is that good charlotte can suck my hairy fucking nutsack.

I used to watch it, but since Kenny died or came back or whatever..its just gotten to stupid. My favorite main character is Chef.

Is that all you can say. I like this character or that character. I dont want to detract from you opinions, and please forgive me I really don't want to sound insulting. But southpark isnt a kids show, its a significant and important piece of media that deserves the respect and deference that it has earned through the dealing with important issues and characterisation. Goddamn it nevermind, no ones paying any attention anyway....

I've always liked Timmy, and Butters/Professor Chaos.  I have to say, South Park has probably stretched the boundaries of animation here in the states, at least as far as what can be gotten away with on tv anymore.

I always laugh to the bounds of insanity when I see Moses in "Jewbilee".

And Hulkbuster: why not ask then in this thread what was your favorite social comentary in South Park? I though the gay scouts issue and the Catholic church were both gutsy topics that were well exicuted.

My favourites are Stan and Wendy, I wish they hadn't reduced Wendy's role in later series.

Wendy did have a somewhat large role in episode 610: Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society.

Go Butters, my favourite episode is the one where Butters wants to be a super villian and he comes up with all these ideas but his sidekick kept on telling him that the Simpsons had already done it.

Spidercow, I think that's Big Gay Al you're referring to. Although he wasn't originally their scout leader (he showed up in the forth episode as a guy who owned a sanctuary for gay animals).

Also, ShineFusion - you're referring to episode 607: The Simpsons Already Did It, in which Professor Chaos & General Dissaray try to wreak more havoc amongst the town (their first attempts were in episode 606: Professor Chaos). Professor Chaos also makes an appearance in episode 616: My Future Self 'N Me, and then again in 702: Krazy Kripples. Anyway, I agree - Professor Chaos is as funny as hell, although I think his first episode was better. His attempts at world domination were just so pathetic! (e.g. flooding the world with a garden hose)

The episode was "Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride". A fantastic early episode.

Yep, the fourth episode, I believe. Some great laughs there. He also shows up in the movie too, but his appearance there is much more disturbing...

I've seen a few episodes and the movie.  It's not really to my taste at all--but I must say, if those guys want to utilize thier freedom of press to make smutty cartoons, more power to them!  tongue

I like South Park a whole lot, too.  My favorite character in Cartman.  Although I like Mr. Mackey a lot, too, because I laugh so hard everytime he says "mmmmmmmmkay".  My favorite South Park episode is one that was showed recently (season 7), the one with Ben Affleck and J-Lo.  That episode was totally insane, and was one of the funniest things I've ever seen on TV!

Mr. Towelie is my favourite side character.

South Park lost it's way abit in Series 3.  I didn't think too much of the film which was from around the same period.

Everything else is classic.  Recently watched season 2 again and had forgotten how good it was.

Just to explain what you don't get, Mango - the show's not supposed to be smut or anything, no matter what they do in the show. It's supposed to be a parody of childhood & life itself - the shock value is just there for... well, shock value. But the parody on life is what it's all about - mainly in the new episodes (especially seasons 5, 6 and 7)

I always thought all the smut in South Park was parodying all the smut in movies and TV these days.  That's one thing why I like the show so much.

even if it is insane, I have found South Park funny at times and annoying at other times.  I used to watch it all the time but when it started to get moved around I watched it less. I still catch it every now and then.  I like Stan a lot, he reminds me of a friend. And I can do such a good Cartman impression it's scary- "you better respect my authorata!"

Not as good as "Cannibal! The Musical". Or "Orgasmo". But still good.

Actually, you are right there - the show parodies smut & other things in movies and TV too. Basically, it parodies just about everything you can think of. It's all done to poke fun at the stupid things in modern society. The show manages to both insult your intelligence and make a good point at the same time, and that's what I love about it.

I like South park but it goes for the cheap gag, its hardly amazing yes its funny but as i said its nothing more than a few cheap gags 'hey look cartmans fucking a 40 year old farmer'. futuramas much better...

South Park did do alot of cheap gags early on but now it's more of a commentary on society (some episodes are spoofs though like "Red Sleigh Down" )with really funny dialouge and situations thrown in.

Yeah, that's true.  I'm a bigger fan of the newer episodes, and I don't like the older ones so much.  The older episodes rely more on fart jokes/sex jokes that only 13 year olds would like (well, that's how it feels to me, anyway.), sorta like Family Guy as Mazaite already mentioned.  The newer ones attack society in general, which is really great.  But now the show's gotten so much better.  I thought that season seven totally rocked.  BTW, I also like the episode "The Simpsons Already Did It" a whole lot.  I never thought that the Simpsons could be paradied, as it is a parody/satire in and of itself.  But the writers of that episode really got it right!

Oh yeah, did you see Red Man's Greed? That was awsome.

Luckily I did see that episode.  Red Man's Greed was my second favorite of this season, after the Cartman/Jennifer Lopez episode.  Just out of curosity, how long does it take to make a South Park episode.  Seems to me it's be very quick.  Red Man's greed made references to SARS.  That disease was in the news not too long before this episode aired.

I think it reall depends.  I remember reading that they did their Elian Gonzales episode the weekend after the American Government raided the house.  Apparently, they were so outraged they just styaed up three days straight to put the episode together.
(Remember, I read this article 4 years ago, so what some facts may be distorted.  Still, that's what I remember reading.)
