South Park

25 posts in this topic

Is it just me or have the past few seasons of South Park gone way down hill. I use to watch all the old ones and laugh my butt off, now they just stink, i find nothing funny about this show anymore its sad. Is it just me or does anyone else out there think they have lost it?

It's really hit-and-miss now. This show is up there with SNL as far as cultural satire. It can be really good at times, but at times it can be kind of weak. Sometimes it seems like they are pressing too hard to make a point.

If you have a PS3 you can watch the newest few episodes uncensored. I have yet to do so, though.

As far as SNL, it hasn't been solid every week since Ferrel and Kattan were the main stars

Haven't watched South Park in a while. The first few seasons I watched every one and loved them. I agree, it's gone the way of SNL. Hopefully it will come back and be funny again.

Family guy is the best cartoon running. the randomness and humor is awesome. i can watch re-run after re-run. I used to watch southpart, but kind have lost interest in it.

As Drewski mentioned it's really up and down now. I watched it all the time when I was in college when it was new and laughed my a$$ off, now I may watch it once a month.

One show that I think stays on top of its game is the simpsons, they have been on for years and with all the episodes they rerun, they will be on for another 20 years or so - I would guess.

I still watch every episode. There is usually one or two funny things that happen per episode. The last few seasons have not been as good as the first 10. I think there have been about 3 episodes per season that really have me laughing for most of the show. I did like the first new episode in March where Cartman accuses the Jews of creating the economic crisis. "Where's the cave Kyle?" Priceless. My favorite is wear Cartman is hall monitor and he is portrayed like Dog the Bounty Hunter.

Quote:
Kanye says 'South Park' put him in check

By NEKESA MUMBI MOODY, AP Music Writer Nekesa Mumbi Moody, Ap Music Writer – Thu Apr 9, 6:08 pm ET

NEW YORK – "South Park" may have accomplished the impossible — getting Kanye West to check his ego.

The Comedy Central show skewered the famously self-important rapper on its show Wednesday night, painting him as a narcissistic figure so out of touch with reality he couldn't even take a (very politically incorrect) joke.

West's love of himself and his work has been almost as integral to his image as his music: Just last year, he told The Associated Press that he was the "voice of this generation." Also recently, he was quoted as saying his greatest regret was not being able to see himself perform live.

Yet, on his blog Thursday, West appeared chastened, and ready to turn over a new leaf.

In typical all-caps mode, he wrote: "SOUTH PARK MURDERED ME LAST NIGHT AND IT'S PRETTY FUNNY. IT HURTS MY FEELINGS BUT WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM SOUTH PARK! I ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MY EGO THOUGH. HAVING THE CRAZY EGO IS PLAYED OUT IN MY LIFE AND CAREER."

West said that he started stroking his ego long ago to build up his self esteem — but he now realizes he needs to "GET PAST MYSELF."

In the self-reflective post, he said that people won't take him seriously if he keeps it up (perhaps referring to his well-documented meltdowns at awards shows when he didn't win what he expected).

"I JUST WANT TO BE A DOPER PERSON WHICH STARTS WITH ME NOT ALWAYS TELLING PEOPLE HOW DOPE I THINK I AM," he said.

And perhaps to show that he's really serious about making that change, he provided a link to one of the most biting moments from the "South Park" show, and thanked the writers as well.

Yep its all a bunch of junk now!!! I mean how hard can it be to be funny in todays world when you got a week to think about it????? I guess if I look at it in hind site and try to think of slams on todays world I got no problem finding funny stuff.

I agree, both South Park and SNL have realy gone down hill in the last few years.

With that said, I still love the, "No Kitty!!! Thats my pot pie"!!!!!!!

As well as, "Beef cake"... "Sweat". and "Get me down from Huah"..

I thought the one with McCain and Obama and the one about "cheeseing" from last year were very funny. Also the one with the Margaritaville Blender that explained the downfall of the economy was good too. But yes they are hit and miss.

They have fallen off somewhat but not as bad as the Simpsons. The older (starting Season 3 or 4) Simpson's are WAYYYYYYYYYY better than the ones they put out recently.

FYI

There's a HSOforum called Hulu dot com that you can watch movies, TV shows and all sorts of stuff for free streaming. Just in case you guys missed the episode of SP or anything for that matter.

You can get around a lot of filters by typing the sites IP address as opposed to the URL.

    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
