I like the show, but unfortunately the last ~6 seasons have shown a marked decrease in intelligent plotlines.

A far cry from Cartman Get's An Anal Probe. What happened?

Yeah

do you?

Yes

Do like the show though. It's not just the crazy plots but the creative animation style, it's one of a kind.

So like, you start by saying "I don't get why people call it smart" and proceed to sum it up as jew jokes and fart jokes, then you move your criticism to "it's not pure genius".

What exactly do you want from the show? It's been on air for years and you can tell the creators are struggling to come up with original content for it.

Also, the show isn't 100% topical. There are a lot of episodes which aren't topic at all and revolve entirely around the created universe of the town itself. 'The List' is a prime example of this.

If you learned how the show was made you'd see that it's effectively just Matt Stone and Trey Parker spitballing ideas with the other writers until they manage to form an episode from sitting around a table making each other laugh.

The show has a lot more depth than you give it credit for. I know it's easy to snipe a show because of immature jokes and racism, but if you're gonna keep moving the goal posts and redefining your issues whenever someone challenges them you shouldn't really be allowed to state your opinion in the first place...

As far as I know, South Park was always like this, a mixture of surreal moments and commentary. That's what makes it the show it is.

Worrying about what other people think about a fucking cartoon must be like, the whitest and most childish problem I've ever heard. Seriously, like a rich snobbish girl complaining about sale prices at the checkout line. Or a kid who couldn't have a piece of candy and throws a fit.

Kid, you have it made. So this bitching for the sake of bitching is pissing me off.

Now go watch your cartoons and shut the fuck up.

Well, I mean I'm white, but seriously. Has there ever been a group of more ungrateful bastards? This kid probably has a flat screen TV, cable, Netflix, the internet, a computer, a cell phone, an Xbox, and a bunch of other really cool expensive shit that he didn't even have to fucking earn. So why is he bitching? Because of a cartoon. No, because of what strangers THINK about a cartoon he likes to watch from the warmth and comfort of his home.

This kid needs to live in a cardboard box for a month and reevaluate his petty issues.

Hey we can be poor and ungrateful at the same time. Not getting everything you want doesn't make you a better person in any way except maybe in movies.

Well, my point anyway is that he is really sweating the small stuff. But, then again come to think of it, so am I. I'm just complaining about something stupid and that's all he was really doing. See, that's the main flaw in calling people on their shit. 9 out of 10 times it's a hypocrisy.

It's called a discussion. This is an internet forum.

South Park isn't "smart" at all, it's actually extremely simple. But maybe that's part of the reason why it's so hilarious all the time. It's just so politically incorrect it's almost not even funny, lol.

So what you're saying is that this is an internet forum and this is a discussion?

I'm so lost right now.

Sadly their losing their golden touch. Remember that last one halloween episode with Randy and the video store? That shit was terrible.

"People with material possessions aren't allowed to criticize anything."

Do you seriously think that I stay up late at night worrying that someone might think that South Park is smart? Do you really think that I don't have bigger problems?

I just wanted to express my opinion on a tv show, nothing more. The fact that you're getting mad about it is fucking pathetic.


Just a chick with a dick.

I wouldn't say South Park is incredibly smart, but rather that they are very honest when the satire something. They're not saying they have any solution to problem, to just highlight the problems in such a way that it is made funny in a satirically sense to raise awareness.

Again that is not being "smart", that is being "honest".

Anybody who doesn't think south Park is particularly smart doesn't understand satire.

Anybody who criticizes a TV show is a spoiled, overprivileged child.

Okay, got it, guys.
