South Park Season 16

199 posts in this topic

The 15th Season of South Park kicks off this Wednesday at 10 Eastern. My guess for the opener was Charlie Sheen, but instead it's:

The Human Centipad

Kyle is intimately involved in the development of a revolutionary new product that is about to be launched by Apple. Meanwhile, Cartman doesn't even have a regular iPad yet. He blames his mother.

I didn't see the Human Centipede but I do know enough about it to hopefully get the jokes on it.

In the words of Bart Scott: Can't Wait

This episode sounds a lot like the one where Cartman froze himself so he can get a GameCube, but he ends up in some weird ass version of the future.

Oh, and trust me. Those guys will have a Charlie Sheen based episode up their sleeves for this season.

I'm hoping at least sometime this season, the guys at south park have 1 or 2 episodes that don't rely on pop culture references and have a story that takes place within the south park town and people. I miss those episodes.

New episode wasn't bad. The only part that made me get a good laugh was the "cuttlefish or vanilla paste," otherwise it was mediocre. Once again they rode a cartman gag deep, deep, DEEP into the ground that wasn't that funny to begin with. Hopefully the writers are holding some strong cards to play later.

It's South Park. They produce an episode in six days from scratch. They're not holding anything back at any time.

That being said, I thought this was great this week. Didn't see the Human Centipede but I know enough about it to have got all the references...good start to teh season.

The first couple tend to be in the ok-good range and then start to really hit. That said I actually thought the :censored: me gag was pretty awesome. Got a few laughs, more than the centipede references did.

I was pretty underwhelmed this week; The recurring user-agreement gag lost its humor pretty quickly. The Dr.Phil audience and Cartman getting struck down by God were the best parts of the episode imo.

Cartman getting struck by Lightning was classic

I found it to be pretty funny.

What do you mean you don't read the user agreement? Everyone reads the user agreement. Nobody just agrees to something without reading it first. My all-time favorite user agreement is the one for a DVD copier I have. You must agree not to use this in order to copy copyrighted movies. No, I had no intentions of buying a $200 DVD copier in order to make illegal copies of movies. I just happen to be in the business of distributing every single one of my families home videos.

They did a good job of criticizing what Apple has become. There are plenty of devices that cost less and do almost the exact same thing as the Ipad. They don't sell as well though in part because Apple has become a status symbol. People are not looking to buy the product they are looking to buy the brand and Cartman was a good symbol of the absurd lengths people can go through when they want a product for that particular reason.

It wasn't terrible. But it wasn't up there with any of the great ones either.

Liked the idea, but the execution was 'meh'. Had a couple moments, but could've, and should've been much better.

looking forward to this week's show.

"At the schools first annual Comedy Awards, Jimmy announces that the Germans are the least funny people in the world. Germany is highly insulted. They vow that retaliation toward the kids at South Park Elementary will be swift and brutal."

One has to wonder if they're going to shelve "Funnybot" for a week in light of last night's events and frantically churn out something else...or massively rework a major part of the episode.

My money is on rework a bit. Remember the Christmastime in Canada episode three days after Saddam was captured?

Wait a minute, South Park already showed that they killed Bin Laden, in the end of "It's a Jersey Thing," after al-Qaeda helped stop the expansion of New Jersey by killing all the Italians.

They also killed him at the end of Osama Bin Laden has Farty Pants... and then they killed Saddam probably 5-6 times throughout the show's history, so I doubt having done it before will stop P&S.

Yeah, they never repeatedly killed a character on South Park...

They just showed Osama Bin Laden has Farty Pants, and they are showing Its a Jersey Thing right now.

Ladies and Gents, there will be a Bin Laden sighting in the new episode.

Very disappointed this week. I didn't enjoy it. I also kept thinking "didn't they sort of already do this with Awesome-o"?
