Man, I knew the animation for the show was simple, but GEEZ!  That probably also explains why it only costs $100,000 or so to produce a South Park episode.

I'm surprised that a lot of people on this board like South Park. Maybe I'm wrong but I always thought the people on this board would be more on the liberal side. South Park is made by conservative Republics. (which by the way throws away the myth that conservative Republicans aren't dirty)

I myself am not a huge Southpark fan. Sure it's funny at times, but other times they just cross the line of good taste. I don't mean just a little crossing, but I mean going way overboard. There are things they joke about that should not be joked about.

I never thought of Paker and Stone as "conservative Republicans." If anything, they're middle-of-the-road apolitcals.

Well, maybe I'm wrong, but I have heard that they are Republicans. I seriously wouldn't be surprised, as they bash liberals and democrates left and right.

Nah Conservative Republicans call them Liberal Democrats and Liberal Democrats call them Conservative republicans. Anyone who makes fun of the mormons like they do can't possably be conservative. And they bash Conservatives and Republicans just as much as Lib. Dems. Again sombody misses the shows point.

Well, I'm somebody on this board who's conservative/Republican.  To me, there's no real political edge in South Park.  I, too, agree that you missed the show's point.  If you're a Democrat or a Republican, it might determine the difference as to whether you choose to watch either CNN or Fox News.  But it doesn't determine what TV shows you watch.

Jongriffin, just like you, I don't like it either when South Park crosses far beyond the line of good taste, because then it's not funny anymore.  But the more recent episodes have been doing much less of that.

I refuse to watch any News station. They are all Bullshit in technicolor. I also have disdain for the weather channel and Court TV. And I don't know about the going to far issue on southpark sometimes you have to push on the boundrys of acceptable taste just to see what's out there.

Sorry to get off topic but...

Maz was mentioning South Park making fun of Mormons, which by the way the creators of South Park said they have nothing against Mormons. Heh, speaking of Mormons, I happen to be a Mormon myself. Do you guys find it funny for a Mormon to be on the message board?

No they have nothing against mormons. But they also don't hold back from knocking them. And atacking religous establishment is Liberal not Conservative. (ulness your way conservative like some islamic and christean sects)


The fact is they are nither side of the "coin" that media insists you define people by. And that's why they are equaly attacked on all sides.

And I don't find it funny that you're a Mormon. If you were Amish that would raise some eyebrows...

The one with The Russell Crowe Show where he just went around the world beating the crap out of people was on last night. First time I've seen it but man, it has to be one of the funniest things I've ever seen. And the way they where waiting for the new trailer was just like when fox was going to play the never before Star Wars episode 2 trailer at the end of a crappy show and the trailer was like 20 sec long.

If South Park's creators are conservative, then they're some of the only good conservative commentators IMO.  But I think the show is more or less middle of the road/apolitical and just takes on issues as they come wihout thinking they need to follow one thought process or the other.  Seperating people by "liberal" and "conservative" is in a sense just a way of seperating people that otherwise are after a common cause.  And for the record, I hate both Fox News AND CNN (liberal media my ass).

I don't watch South Park a whole lot (resorts to sick stuff a little too often for my tastes), but there is truly some great insight in it.  Ladder To Heaven and Starvin Marvin are probably my fave eps, since they made me think the most and made so many good points about society.  "Simpsons Already Did It" was also wonderful.

The last episode I saw was "Free Hat" and it was fantastic. The storyline about remaking Raiders Of The Lost Ark is something practically anyone can relate to.

they make fun of democrats and republicans on south park
because they both suck basically.
i think family guy and south park both go for cheap jokes, which is a shame because they can also be intellgent.
although south park being dumb can be a lot better.
like in 'cancelled' kyle having to try to activate the satelite in cartmans ass 10 times before he doesn't fart and start laughing hysterically

Sure, Cancelled did have a lot of dumb jokes - but it had some intelligently stupid sattire aswell. I mean, Earth being a giant reality TV show and the meaning of existance on the whole planet was basically to entertain viewers. Sure, some may consider that to be blasphemy - but still, it's as funny as hell. You gotta love the fact that the show has no boundaries and is willing to go places where other shows (even the super-crude Family Guy) wouldn't go.

Okay, so some people (more formally known as "morons" ) will watch the show just for the cheap jokes - but I'd like to think that the majority of South Park's viewers watch the show for it's hillarious sattire and insight into the problems of modern society.

And, Newhook_1 don't judge upcoming episodes by their titles. I mean, just look at "The Biggest Douche In The Universe." That's one of the worst episode titles ever, yet one of the best episodes ever made. I'm actually looking forward to "South Park Is Gay" as it sounds like it's going to provide some hillarious sattire on the new homosexual theme that seems to be sweeping the entertainment industry this year. Still, I'm not going to judge it until I see it - and neither should you, Newhook.

All the episodes are really insightful, it's great to watch because of its mix of crude humor and world issues.

If people can't see through to the inner message of an episode, I pity them. If they can't see it and they complain about South Park being too vulgar/violent/stupid/etc, that just pisses me off. Thick-headed parents think they know everything.

When's South Park Is Gay on?

South Park Is Gay will be airing in America on October 22.

I completely agree with everything you said there. I hate people who complain about the obscenity of the show. You can make anything look bad when you take it out of context - and that's exactly what they're doing. Anyone who takes the time to actually watch an episode will realise that it's actually quite intelligent, and the vulgarity, violence, stupidity, etc. is all there for a reason.

Anyway, back to the new episodes - here's an article straight from South Park Studios that outlines some of the upcoming plots:
'Launching the second half of the seventh series, episode 708 entitled "South Park is gay!" has the whole town joining the hip new homosexual craze. Suddenly, it's cool to be gay! Cartman, Stan, Kyle and Kenny go head to head with the other kids to see who can be the "gayest," while Mr. Garrison responds with, "If straight people are gonna steal our culture, then us REAL gays are just gonna have to step it up a notch!" Later on in the season, the boys take on Rob Reiner and the anti-smoking hysteria and explore the issue of the elderly and their apparent vendetta against farmer's markets.'

Yet again more modern events shall be satirised and get the piss completely extracted from them. Sounds hillarious, and I for one can hardly wait.

i totally agree with you Beamer and asylum fry.

to be honest though i dont think people much care about south park now,
there been no trailers like with earlier seasons.
and no one pays any attention now.
it just hilarious that people wanted to cancel the  show thinking that it would be so damaging to kids.

i think the mothers with too much time on there hands have got jobs now, there kids are'nt so young
so they don't see any reason to protest the show.

speaking of the shows intellgent satire, i think the best has been the one where there's a debate in south park about changing the flag.
the whole its racist but its history debate.
it was brilliant at the end that it didn't occur to the kids that the flag was racist, becuase they never considerd the color of the people on the flag.
and the kkk meetings where they play who's got the silliest thing under there sheet.
and as well as white power, they chant 'hot shower, hot shower, hot shower'

And i think that only south park could put satrical comments on the 2000 elections
into a story parodying terminator and also manage to refrence 2001: a space oddity

Oh I didn't say I wasn't looking forward to it, South Park is my favorite show on T.V. I can't wait for it to start. It's just that I think that with Matt and Trey's writing style this will be emmy caliber stuff, no sarcasem was intended.

  Even looking at my post I don't see how you could interpet that I was judgeing the episode by it's title.

  "The Biggest Douche In The Universe" one of the worst episode titles? How could you say that?!?

I'm just saying - The Biggest Douche In The Universe isn't exactly a good title. The episode is so intelligent, yet the title is so stupid, and it really gives the wrong impression for the episode to people who haven't seen it. I love the actual episode itself though, it's my all-time favourite, second to The New Terrance And Phillip Movie 2 Trailer (let's face it, Season 6 kicked ass  smile).

Sorry about misinterpreting your post, it just really sounded like you were being sarcastic. I mean, all you posted was "Found out what the next new episode is called 'South Park is Gay'........ I smell an emmy for Matt and Trey" so you can see how that could easily be interpreted as sarcasm. Still, I'm sorry - my bad.

I agree, if they keep up the good writing, they could very well win an emmy next year. Although it would be great to see Futurama win one, since it will be it's final emmy nomination. On the other hand, South Park hasn't won an emmy yet... ahh, I don't really care - just as long as The Simpsons doesn't win.  smile

I heard that Matt and Trey are Liberterian. Tarian. I can't spell that word. So sue me.

Anyway--some of the old episodes were painful to watch (that one ep with the "licksalotapus" or whatever that dinosaur thing was just wasn't funny to me, although it was worth it for the punchline at the end). I really enjoy the newer ones, and I'm glad Kenny doesn't die in every episode now because yeah, it was getting old. And I like Kenny.  frown

Emmys for everyone!

OH--and for a real laff--go on google and look up "capalert" and look at their review of the south park movie.

I LOVE the south park movie. It made my spleen explode.

Since I'm a cruel and heartless-person I don't think South Park has ever crossed that line between sadistic/weird/evil/funny and pure mean.

And since I'm 15 I laugh my ass of every time Cartman speaks a word.

The best thing about the show is that it has no moral.

I like it raw.

Don't worry, I like this episode, too.  Cartman's attempts to go knock himself out to go back in time were so funny!

South Park has as alomost every American sitcom a moral-preach at the end of the show (I've learned something today...) but in an avarage American sitcom they don't spend 18 minuties making fun or humiliating a subject, making obvious over-exagurations (sp) and then in the end at the moral statment just stating the obvious that we've all figured out 13 minuites ago.

That's South Park to me and that's why I like the show.
