South Park
« on: November 08, 2018, 10:19:02 PM »
I started watching it about 6 month ago after I ran out of virtually every adult animated comedy there is, today I just started season 12.
I'm loving this show so far, I haven't laughed that hard since the old Family Guy days.
Since I've been binging, I couldn't really tell you a favorite season but they've all been consistent so far. 11, which I just finished, had some stuff that had me tearing up from laughter, the Night of The Living Homeless episode is freakin priceless.
A few seasons back there was the episode where Cartman exterminated hippies from people's attics, that had me rolling too :lol
I'll just keep posting about episodes here as I go forward, wish I had done so earlier, but here we go!

I love South Park. I've seen all the episodes and I just love Cartman. Too many good episodes. I've been working all night so my memory is kinda bad right now but some memorable episodes right now that I can think of include the Scott Tenorman Must Die episode, the Casa Bonita episode, and the Raisins episode where Stan becomes a goth kid. It's interesting the past 2 or 3 seasons the entire season is connected instead of small story arcs in the earlier seasons.

I haven't gotten to the point of season-long arcs yet, that doesn't sound too appealing either but I'll see. I don't even like 2-part- or 3-part episodes, I feel like they're not really great at making longer storylines work.

Wow, this is awesome. So happy you're loving it. I've been watching South Park for 20 years, since season 2. I love this show and it always makes me laugh, but it's impossible for me to pick a single favorite episode. There's so many. I think I watch this show more than anything else. I like having TV and films on in the background at home, and South Park is always a contender to be played. I just think it's charming, smart, gross, and hilarious all at once.

The early seasons are rough to me and I can't really watch them anymore. Not their fault - I just don't think the show really found its voice until about season 5, when Jimmy showed up. The brand of South Park humor really got smart around this point while being funnier than ever. Season 6 is the best of the early years to me. The episode where they parody Lord of the Rings with a porn tape is such a classic.

Seasons 7-10 are the golden years to me, not just because a lot of my favorite scenes and dialogue are here, but because they're the most consistently funny. And there are tons of fantastic episodes after this, but there are so many favorite moments from these specifically. Also, the Fishsticks episode is amazing, and any episode with Cartman and Butters as main characters is a guaranteed winner.

The last few seasons have been different. I don't particularly like the serial storytelling and they've dropped the ball on humor in a way that makes it hard to continue watching, but I do because I've grown up with it. This season is at least better than last year's, which just might be my least favorite season of the show.

Hope you enjoy it as you go forward. There are some episodes I really can't stand (Funnybot for example, or A Million Little Fibers) but more often than not there's still hilarious stuff to be found. I'd be curious to know what you think of the show when they reach PC Principal.

Definitely dude. I've been in the habit of putting animated shows on my iPad and watching them in bed, watched the entirety of The Simpsons and King of The Hill that way, and with South Park I've been asked by my wife to either turn it off or leave the bed since she can't sleep from me shaking with laugher :lol

Loved that episode too, anything with Butters is usually gold, just his voice cracks me up heh. Stan's dad also cracks me up pretty hard, that episode when he just went to his kid's baseball games to pick up fights with fathers of the opposite team freakin killed me. Also when he was competing with Bono for biggest crap record. I'm laughing just thinking of it.
I tell you one character I miss though, earlier on there was a kid who'd just give people the finger in the middle of a conversation, just unprompted and unapologetic about it, I wish they kept him around cause that cracked me up to bad.

That's how I am with Family Guy, I still watch the episodes and hardly even smile at anything.

I saw the movie the other day but I didn't like it much, the musical numbers were too much for me. I did get to see Kenny's face so it wasn't a complete loss  ;D

The film hasn't aged well in my opinion - I haven't been able to watch it for like 10 years now - but the "Kyle's Mom's A Bitch" song will never not be fun.

Scott Tenorman Must Die and the LotR porn tape episode are definitely my two favorites, but so many classics over the years. One of the still shows that I still usually buy the DVDs of, just to make sure that I have them. My senior year of college I took one of my roommates through the whole series (they were on season 12 at that point) because he had only seen a couple random episodes and he said that so many random running jokes in the locker room (he was a captain of the soccer team) finally made sense because they were South Park references.

The movie is fantastic. Everyone used to come over to my house in high school when we had early dismissal Fridays and we always started the afternoon with a viewing of Bigger Longer Uncut before we got into some videogames. I always love that they got Hetfield to do that one song :lol

Careful? Was my mother careful when she stabbed me in the heart with a coat hangar while I was still in the womb?



So much goodness in the movie, especially the whole Satan/Hussein love story....

"Saddam, why do you always want to make love to me from behind? Is it that you want to pretend I'm someone else?"

"Satan, your ass is big and red, who am I going to pretend you are, Liza Minelli?"

Fucking gold man, I could quote that movie all day.

Pretty much any Randy Marsh-focused episode is pure gold.

I think my personal favourite Randy episode is when he buys an old Blockbuster store and forces his family to work there on Halloween.

Some other favs of mine:

Make Love, Not Warcraft  (World of Warcraft)
Guitar Queer-O  (Guitar Hero)
You Have Zero Friends  (Facebook/TRON)
Over Logging  (The Internet Goes Down)
The City Part of Town  (Gentrification and Cheeseball "Concept" Neighbourhoods)
Child Abduction is Not Funny  (Over-Protective Parents and Shitty Wall Mongolians)
Raisins  (Hooters)
Up the Down Steroid  (Jimmy Juices and Cartman Fakes Being Handicapped to Compete in the Special Olympics)
The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers  (Lord of the Rings)
My Future Self 'n' Me  (Parents Lie to Kids Rather than Talk About Drugs)
Christian Rock Hard  (Cartman Creates a Fake Christian Rock Band and Napster/Downloading Music)

... there's so many though.

People who just say "it's so vulgar" as a reason to not like South Park haven't even watched it, I reckon, cuz most of the episodes show how dumbass parents can be so dumbass and the kids are the ones who are actually the adults of the show.

I really don't get the love for the Scott Tenorman episode, I can't stand it.

So much goodness in the movie, especially the whole Satan/Hussein love story....

Man, the whole theater went "ooooooooooooooh" after that one.  So good.

You think CC would really risk canceling South Park? I don't think so, also I think another network would pick it up right away, Netflix being the best case scenario IMO.

I didn't mean to imply that it would CC. Matt and Trey are probably just going to get sick of doing it and just stop one day.

I loved the first couple of seasons....after that it got to be too much for my tastes.   

After I had been gone for awhile, I turned it back on one day just to see what they were up to.....and it was the "dog milking" episode.   

Cartman masterbating a dog is a level of "OMG PLEASE GIVE ME EYE BLEACH" that I haven't experienced since my son was a victim of the lemonparty prank in junior high.

"With Apologies to Jesse Jackson" episode with Randy Marsh. The opening scene when he's on Wheel of Fortune could be the most controversial scene I've seen on TV.   :rollin

Is that the one where the puzzle is "people who annoy you" or something like that and the answer is actually 'naggers' but he says the other thing?

Nevermind, I found it on Youtube, it is.  Classic Randy.
