Based off that trailer, it sounds like they are going to make fun of all these people reporting crimes that occurred decades ago?

I won't say I called it as it's kind of an obvious subject but holy shit I'd be lying if I wasn't laughing my ass of last night.

Aside from the PC babies bit, episode was pretty fucking whatever. The Simpsons bit at the end made no sense and the episode as a whole was trying way too hard to cram in like every 2018 reference it could manage into 22 minutes.

I feel bad shitting on it Cuz South Park was always one of my favorite shows. Even the last two which a lot of people hated, I still thought those were great.

This season though so far has been awful, like it feels like they don't even care anymore (which, the #cancelsouthpark hashtag they started is serial lol). Like, I don't look forward to next episode at all.

None of the Mr. Hankey episodes have been among the best but it was far from bad. I definitely look forward to watching the rest of the season.

This just doesn't make any sense to me. Especially only 3 episodes in. Not even defending the show. That statement just doesn't make sense.

I just think they're having trouble re-finding their footing ever since the last 2 seasons of season-long arcs.

Like everyone can agree one-off episodes of south park are far better than season-long arcs, but they just can't figure out what they did pre-19 and 20 to make them so good.

Even season 18 had some funny shit like the grounded vindaloop and the washington redskins bit

I'm the opposite myself. I think the last two seasons were kinda meh, minus a few episodes. I will say Mr. Hankey is one of my least liked characters. I think it may have to do with how many people over killed quoting him

I dunno, this season so far has just felt like South Park: Color By Numbers. Almost every joke/reference that happens is so hamfisted, I see it, my brain acknowledges it with "Ah, that's supposed to be this IRL thing." and that's it. So far it just hasn't been as clever as it usually is.

I think part of what I liked about about the season long arcs was that it challenged then to actually be creative/funny on their own, while the satire was more of a bonus. Like, I think what happened, as someone said before, I think after the past couple seasons they just forgot how to do the kind of clever satire they used to do so well.

huh? The episode was called A Problem with A Poo.....Apu. It's basically like they came up with the title and built the episode around it. There was a huge PC outrage over the stereotypes in The Simpsons in the last year or so.

It made complete sense.

I know about what it was based off of and I understood the title pun from The Problem With Apu.

I'm saying it doesn't make sense for South Park, one of the most offensive cartoons of all time, to call out The Simpsons for a character like Apu.

I'm pretty sure that's the joke.

Wasn't the whole point to call out all the "PC babies" that complain about nothing, especially those that had issues with Apu a few months back. While at the same time ripping on Roseanne with the Ambien thing.

When I first saw the pic and preview video I thought the episode was going to be about Kavanaugh.

I definitely think this was one of South Park's weaker episodes, but it wasn't terrible - they've done far worse.

Oh for sure.

I remember reading an interview with Trey Parker (Maybe Matt Stone as well) years ago after Team America where he was asked about South Park and other projects and he said something like

"We're running out of ideas for South Park. We have an idea for another movie we really want to do and we're still contracted for one more season but after that we just want to make other things."

Paraphrasing, he may have worded it differently.

And then since then they've done like 7/8 more seasons and no 2nd movie.

Basically so much money is being thrown at them that they will never stop, but they have zero ideas left so every episode is a scramble.

Of course they are out of ideas, they start working on the new episode one week before it airs and they base it on something relatively new thing that happened.

They consider the Imaginationland trilogy to be their second movie.
