Why South Park Isn’t Awesome


Right now, Comedy Central is airing the 12th season of “South Park”. When the show first aired, I was in college and, much like every 20-year old male, worshiped the show. I have watched the first two episodes of this season and, well, I am not impressed.

The problem is that the first two episodes of this season haven’t pushed the envelope, but instead, have been obnoxiously crude. Last week, the episode dealt with AIDS. I won’t lie…I have laughed at stand-up comedians (Louis CK) and other funny things (“Family Guy”) that have made jokes about AIDS. The problem with “South Park” is that it was a 30-minute AIDS joke. That really isn’t funny.

Then, last night, the “South Park” guys decided to make their own personal “Leave Britney Alone” video. I don’t have a problem with that, heck, I even agree with them. The problem was the delivery. It was sick, gross, twisted, and hypocritical. They took shot after shot at Britney and the entire time, tried to show how obsessed Americans are with her. Don’t get on your high horse and try and tell the world to leave her be, then sixty seconds later, turn around and make jokes about her weight. I’m not a Britney supporter, in fact, she is a complete whack-job.

Maybe Trey Parker and Matt Stone have run out of shocking topics? Maybe they are getting a bit too mean as they get older? Maybe my tolerance for sick humor has decreased as I have gotten older? Whatever it is, “South Park” has become a bit too twisted for me.

    Actaully, you missed the point. The Britney jokes were actaully not supposed to just be a ‘joke’, they were to point out how shallow the media can be when covering someone who they should be decent about and back off, instead of explioting.

    I think the problem is the first two episodes of season 12 have been “one-punchline” jokes. There was only one real punchline in episode 1, i.e., the cure for AIDS is cash. Episode two didn’t even really have much in the way of humor; rather than one punchline, it kinda had one “point,” the point being that America is stupidly obsessed with tearing down its icons. Valid… but not enough to carry a whole episode by itself with out more creative humor along for the ride.

  4. March 21, 2008 at 7:46 PM

    That is exactly it. You are right on the money John. Each episode has been one joke and that is it.

    It’s not about getting old, age has nothing to do with it. I am the same age as Trey Parker and unlike him my sense of humor has remained intact. This show has just changed on an epic scale and is not funny anymore. I have been reading south park fans reactions to the Britney episode and am shocked to see that so many people thought it was “hilarious” and “genius” while the rest of us who thought it sucked are being told we just “didn’t get it”. I for one “got it”, and have been trying to get rid of it ever since. This episode was disappointing on many levels, mostly because, as Will says in comment #1, it “wasn’t supposed to be a joke”. Well excuse me Will, but isn’t South Park supposed to be funny? And if South Park isn’t joking anymore than what good is it?

    I had been waiting anxiously for season 12 – up to season 11 there had still been sterling episodes in each season. Admittedly some were average, but there were still various comic moments throughout each episode – the dialogue and characterisation has been great, one of the main reasons why I’m still watching this thing.

    Season 12 has been a disappointment so far, though. I understand that there are messages in each episode, and I recognise that it isn’t overly crass for the sake of being offensive or controversial. In fact, perhaps the messages are even more acute now than before. However, my main gripe is that it just isn’t funny anymore! The comic timing, the blend of slapstick and wit in scenes, it’s missing from these episodes. In previous episodes almost every scene had some sort of comic effect produced, whether slapstick or ironic. The few Season 12 episodes released as yet have few jokes – like the previous commenters say, just one underlying joke per episode, a joke that is stretched out and dissected to such an extent that it loses any comic effect that it may have had the potential to create. Most of the scenes aren’t so much of entertaining as just trying to further the plot, to make the point and contribute to the underlying joke (which by then has grown stale), while the previous success of South Park lay in some of the dialogue, which played expertly with viewers’ expectations and perverting them to great comic effect.

    I’d watched 1201 and 1202: there was still a semblance of humour, and yes, they had a purpose, they had messages out for the viewers, if not humourously presented. However, the recent episode 1205: Eek, A Penis!, was just horrible and crass, even for South Park standards. The subplot (in fact, one of the two equally trivial plotlines in the episode) of Mr Garrison chasing his transplanted escaping penis was simply ludicrous and gross, to put it plainly. I didn’t even get what message South Park was trying to put across in this. The other plotline, of Cartman teaching the black children to cheat, was slightly more comprehendable, but there was really only one joke reiterated over and over.

    To be honest, I wasn’t never big on the sexual and insensitive humour portrayed by South Park, but what offset all these in the past was the great dialogue, the comic timing, and everything else that allowed it to survive despite its mediocre graphics. However, I’m not seeing any of this in the latest season.

    I don’t know about you guys but I’m European. ‘Nuff said.

    About the show, I don’t understand it anymore. When I first saw it I was 12 years old and my reaction was “Oh my god they’re swearing on tv, how funny, especially the *Bleep* sounds. When I was 15 I couldn’t see the point in the show anymore. Messing with cencorship in US ain’t that big. It ain’t even funny to begin with. What are Matt&Trey thinking? “Look at us! We are showing a penis on a mouse on tv and we show this ’cause we can!”

    As with the jokes, where are they? An episode usually contains a running joke of some sort which isn’t funny, especially when it is repeated again and again. And the “jokes” are just plain randomness, like penis-on-a-mouse, where the funny thing is, well, penis-on-a-mouse. It is absurd, but not absurd humor. It is just a penis-on-a-mouse. A thing. A noun. A thing every second grader could have invented.

    The plot is just pure randomness too. Humor, no matter how insane, has a logic. But in South Park, every plothole and fallacity can be repaired with even a bigger plothole.

    And what is with the second class American celebrities, phenomenas and movies? If that is satire, I think all the deceased European satirists and Mark Twain are spinning in their grave. South Park isn’t satire ’cause it barely makes any strikingly amusing statements about the society by using WIT! For example, taking Mel Gibson, making him a coprofilic sado-masochistic lunatic who goes around wearing only his undies isn’t neither truthful nor funny. M&T propably thought it would be funny ’cause he is, afterall, Mel Gibson. I mean, you could have made so many anti-semite related jokes on him, how he is denying everything and all but no; shit and sadism is all the viewers will get. Same goes with all the celebrity parodies that are sucking so hard we people here in Europe can barely keep our socks on.

    I could break every episode into pieces ’cause by watching one, you’ve seen them all. They’re all just shit and celebrities with no real humour in them. M&T are just making these series ’cause they don’t know how to make anything else. Even know they’re propably laughing at the hardcore fanboys calling the newest episode “a masterpiece”. The joke is on you, viewer, and it isn’t funny.

    Totally disagree! I think it’s awesome! Only ONE single episode sucked donkeyballs out of over 10 seasons. And that was the episode all about “Pip”.

    Though I can say that I once was a huge The Simpsons-fan, and now, I’ve found South Park as my source of a daily laugh. Simpsons just doesn’t cut it anymore. I like the cruelty that still isn’t more than a harmless joke. Making fun of Jarred, Britney Spears, Jimmy Buffett, Alan Jackson, Michael Jackson, Barbara Streisand and many other is pretty funny, and you know that it isn’t personal. Though they maybe went a little too far with the “Steve Irwin with a stingray in his stomach”-thing.

    South Park still rules, though I miss Chef and Isaac Hayes!

    South Park is ridiculous. That is the point. It’s a satire on current events. The only people who will understand this show are the ones who understand that our culture has problems. as far as the britney episode, it was great. What was funny? the attack on the media/american public obsession with britney. The weight/camel toe/peeing on a lady bug subjects were being used against the media in the show, not against britney. They were emphasizing that these topics were ridiculous to use against her just as many that are really used. For example making stories on how she’s lost her mind or her bad parenting (which is used in real life). I’m not sure how you all missed that but w/e.

    • Mashishi

      it’s purely satirical. I love this show so much. If you don’t like it and feel so compelled to post in a forum about it. Fuck off…don’t watch it. Enough said. It’s an amazing show because it hits on current events. It’s beyond crude, but that is a “wow factor” that draws viewers. If it were appropriate it wouldn’t get any viewers, and forum’s like this power them even more…they need to make fun of you donkey dicks who post on this.

It usually happens eventually with all shows. I mean look what happened to The Simpsons. I duno i hope for the sake of south park they can come out with something spectacular this season. But I won’t be counting on it.

    Put on your retard cap and watch South Park, again! This show is the exact opposite of what it used to be. Now they just try to be as absolutely obnoxious as they can because they realize that nobody can do anything about it because of our legal system. And the Age thing? Complete bullshit, what did you base your logic off of? Red Vs Blue? Whos that written by? 9 year olds? If not then 9 year olds at heart and their opinion doesnt mean shit because they make halo movies with their spare time. Seriously? Let me base my logic off of Candyland, thatll make for a good argument. Im 16 and South Park for the last 3 years has just been stupid with if lucky 2-3 laughs MAX, the older ones are hilarious. Oh and everyone I know says I have a great sense of humor, so blow me if you think im humorless. To those of you little South Park fanboys, who 30$ says you werent even there for the old episodes of South Park, go back to your 60 IQ show with your helmet and your pudding cups and try not to make a mess while the people who dont fail at life laugh at you. Which is the only funny thing about South Park.

    I agree that age has nothing to do with whether the show sucks or not. Let’s face it south park has simply turned to shyte since season 12, and I for one am no longer in the mood to keep watching and hoping “next week gets better”. I took this piece of shyte off my tivo menu cause I don’t want to waste the space on it anymore.

    And WTF did the show turn ghetto?? kanye west, michael jackson and tonight with the black pimps coaching butters. What a turnoff this show is shyte.

    I remember– I was like the only girl in the world that absolutley LOVED South Park (when I was seven lmfao) and I got all my other female friends to watch it when I was like thirteen. They think it’s sooo funny now but it really isn’t. The only funny episodes right now is the Jonas Brothers episode, the Kanye West episode, the HSM episode, Dead Celebrities, Major Boobage, Breast Cancer Show Ever, and the Eek a Penis. The rest are sooo not even funny like at all. And I was super disappointed at the Vampire/Twilight episode. I freakin LOVE Twilight but I love to laugh so if they made fun of Twilight I would think it would be ten times funnier (for example I love the Jonas Brothers and the Jonas Brothers episode of South Park is my favorite episode because they made fun of JB perfectly it was friggin hilarious) the Twilight episode did not get one chuckle out of me. And I know that Trey and Matt can do a way better job.

    Season 8 was the best season EVVERRR it’s soo funny.
    All in all–South Park stopped being funny after season 10.

    What the hell happened to South Park!? It used to be funny.. I haven’t seen anything in while from this show that seriously made me laugh, or even entertained me for that matter… The Simpsons, Family Guy, and now South Park.. WTF? I guess after awhile you just run out of funny clever things to do in an animated series before it loses it’s creative or funny edge… South Park just seems desperate now. I hate to say it, but I find myself laughing more watching lame reality TV shows that currently air versus the new material that’s on South Park now a days. And no it’s not me changing my opinion on what’s funny, or loosing my sense of humor. -It’s because this show JUST ISN’T FUNNY ANYMORE.

    Oh and to all those who think it’s the same show it was 10 plus years ago, go ahead and do this.. watch season 1-3 then immediately afterward watch 11-13 and tell me there isn’t a difference in the comic genius behind the show. There has obviously been a major negative change to this show. (Somewhere between seasons 8-10 it started to go down hill in my opinion, now its in the gutter.)

    I don’t know, This show needs SOMETHING. It’s just lacking so many things now. They’re loosing more and more fans after each episode they push out there. It’s almost like they just don’t care to try anymore. It’s sad. The last 2 seasons have had the lowest ratings thus far in the shows history not to mention tons and tons of negative reviews from their fans. For god sakes the show hasn’t won any major awards since 2005! it’s almost 2010… wow.

    Is it just me, or is the Office on NBC like the only edgy FUNNY comedy show left on TV?!

Not even & South Park is Definitely not an exception.. The writers of these shows never seem to know when to end it. 12 seasons? *face palm* NO WAY IN HELL will a show be as sharp, witty and Humourus as it was 12 SEASONS AGO! people eventually run out of ideas hence the sudden obsession south park has with Current events..

Matt & Trey are just money hungry assholes who dont care about the credibility of their show just how much more pay checks they can milk from the name. eventually they will get canceled Just trying to figure out WHY THE SIMPSONS ARE STILL ON?!

    I watched an occasional episode between the years. A friend of mine, who is a fan, consistently tries to convince me of its merits. I, at last relented, downloaded a few episodes, and stopped the files halfway between the first two episodes. Mainly to feed my curiosity, I was determined to search Google to find out about the show’s appeal.

    I have to agree with CW. I, too, stumbled upon this site and found more chuckles in the reactions of fans than the show itself. That SOMEONE FEELS TYPING THEIR MESSAGE IN ALL CAPS MAKES IT MORE COMPELLING more or less proves his hypothesis.

    South Park is not funny. It never was funny. Ever. Not when I was 15 when it first came on the air. Not when I was a 20 year old college student. And certainly not now, nor while under the influence of alcohol or any kind of drug. It’s the modern, functional equivalent of a long whooppee cushion gag. At least it’s the ultimate youtubeable show. You can catch the funny bits after and not have to wade through 20 minutes of poorly drawn filler.

    How its fans can say it’s better than the Simpsons is quite understandable, since its more nuanced satire would tend to go over the heads of those who appreciate fart jokes. The Simpsons are its worst when they try to replicate the South Park model. Even Family Guy is miles ahead. The first 3 seasons (appropriately enough, when more comparable to South Park) are just utter rubbish. Thankfully, that show has mellowed out and isn’t going for the exclusively shock-jock approach to gags, which makes it passable and occasionally entertaining.

    Maybe South Park can learn from them.

    I’m trying to watch this show, seriously, and I can’t understand why people watch it… it’s absolutely unfunny and the animation is just… probably the worst I’ve ever seen in my life.

    I heard a lot of people saying the old episodes were better so I downloaded the 1st season and stills pure crap.

    I studied cinema/tv production in college so I was doing this as research more than anything, I do love shows like Family Guy, The Simpsons, etc. but I really can’t watch 10 minutes of Southpark without getting extremely bored and annoyed by the animation.

    ok you guys, here is the problem with this article. You complain about South Park being crude and vulgar, but you are forgetting something. The fundamental idea of South Park is to be sick, gross, and crude. You are missing the point. The spirit of South Park is to teach a lesson. To expose the flaws in society, and to do it in their own, individual way. The sick, gross, and crude way. We should be openly welcoming this new form of individuality and difference. We shouldn’t complain about how it doesn’t meet “our” standards. Society needs a change like this more than anything else. Let us welcome these new ideas with a hopeful heart and an open mind. This is individualism. This is the future. This is the first amendment. This is the very new idea, of Freedom.

    none of you understand the britney episode. they dnt care how the media treats celebrities they were simply showing how humerous it is, that we actually care so damn much about celebrities. People who watch that garbage on tmz and other rediculous pop culture channels are actually fueling the fire for it. that is what i think there message was and i thot they conveyed it pretty creatively. Do you honestly think Matt and Trey give a shit about some pop diva that was probably on drugs when she went on her psycho spree. i mean really get a clue!

    I don’t dislike South Park because it’s crude, vulgar or twisted. Crude humor is funny to me. I’m a fan of Troma, prank phone calls and the occasional dick and fart joke. South Park just isn’t funny in any realm at all though. The comic timing is non existent, the voices are unfunny in their forced attempt to be funny, it’s not even remotely clever and the creators come off like pompous, self righteous assholes. So often a friend will ask me to sit through some part of this show, telling me how funny it’s going to be. So often I’ve kept an open mind and watched said clip or scene and am forced to politely laugh, hoping they’ll get the hint and not show me any more clips, because it’s honestly not funny at all. I’ve been drunk and watched episodes, I’ve been stoned and watched episodes, and nothing kills a buzz for me quite like being forced to sit down and watch this horrible show. Having pseudo satirical topical debates with a goofy voice isn’t funny to me, and it never will be funny. It takes no talent to write what they write, it’s cheap prodding that any high school stoner could pull off. People only like South Park because other people like South Park. Plain and simple. The people who watch South Park: fat pre-teen kids who wear wrestling t-shirts and talk about how badass it was that they heard bleeped out cuss words on comedy central, college douche bags who are reliving their glory days of when they were fat pre-teen kids who wore wrestling shirts and old people who think it’s hip and stylish for them to like foul mouthed cartoon characters and watch it for it’s “political satire”. No self respecting person could watch this show and actually enjoy it. It’s a piece a’shit show and how it’s stayed on the air as long as it has only proves that either Matt and Trey Parker are suckin’ a lotta corporate dick or the American people are trashier than I could have ever imagined.

    I quit watching around season 8 after I felt it was phoned in or more likely handed over to an intern. Tuned back in and saw Imaginationland Part 1, some of Part 2. Three episodes…REALLY? There were no jokes I can remember. Perhaps Cartman said “jew” and Kyle said “shut it fatass” a few times. 66 minutes of garbage. I skipped part three and the rest of the shows.

    Those that say it’s an age thing are way off. Since South Park has been on so long I still see a funny one I have not scene every now and then. It’s always an old one. If the show were the same and my sense of humor matured I would not think it was funny. I didn’t change. Production of South Park changed. See dumb ones (newer) and keep turning.

    My sense of humor matured. Yeah that why I started watching family guy three years ago. It’s a real Masterpiece theater. That show started to suck the moment Seth signed his 100 million dollar deal and spent time trying to make a joke out of that terrible Cleveland show. Family guy is now one joke shows that is really no joke, 30 second dead silence gaps and repetitiveness for the sake of less joke writing and political statements.

    Shows just go bad cause production is lazy. Last season of Seinfeld sucks. About 8 Good shows and 22 unwatchable ones in the extended season. If My humor changed I would not recognized 8 good ones and would not still watch the bulk of the series minus those 22 awful shows. I got a sense of humor. Jerry Seinfeld doesn’t. His favorite shows are the ones I hate the most. Chinese Restaurant? That episode sucked as did the last one. Seinfeld went to hell when he took over for Larry David. Anything good Seinfeld did must have been lying around or written by someone else.

    You should have titled this “Why I don’t watch South Park anymore” or “Why I still watch South Park but don’t know why”. You can’t claim that South Park is or isn’t awesome because the perception of awe varies from person to person. To argue over opinions is menial since they cannot be proven, thus the discussion should end unless there is a presentation of facts. Either way, I’m going to sleep.

    Haha your an idiot. South Park is still awesome. I am out of college and watch it frequently. South Park’s humor is evolving, like all great artists do. Why is Radiohead so awesome? The Beatles? “Always evolving” were George Harrison’s words. South Park used to be crude, character building jokes. Now it relates to current events, still maintaining their foundational crudeness.
    The best part is that they are constantly making fun of (dumb) Americans, like this guy, who can’t even tell. I feel like I just read something written by Issac Hayes (old voice of Chef) who got pissed about South Park making fun of Scientology.

    No other show does what South Park does, which is why it is so great.

    Here’s the thing that I don’t understand about haters: If you hate it so much, why don’t you just ignore it and do something that you actually like. Here’s what I don’t understand about fanboys: If you like something enough to waste time trying to convince people who don’t like to like it, then why are you wasting your time anyway. Just ignore the haters and do what you enjoy. I understand that people need to express their opinion sometimes, I mean, where would our world be without freedom of expression? But why waste time being here, writing something that will be forgotten about an hour after someone who sees?(I’m being a total hypocrite by the way, but still, I have a valid point to make.) Really, I think that just ignoring something that you don’t like, or just ignoring the haters and doing something you do like would just stop all of this retarded arguing. Thank you if you actually read this whole thing.

    That “30 minute AIDS joke” and the crude delivery of Britney Spears is part of the satirical nature of South Park. A satire is a comedic expression of social and political issues. Because South Park is a satire, they spend every episode making fun of issues in everyday life and express their own values. If it was a single joke about a single issue, it wouldn’t be a satire, but a just another comedy show.

    As ridiculous as it sounds, if you could appreciate South Park’s humor from a literary perspective to break down the messages being expressed, you may find more enjoyment in the show. Enjoy the show for what it is: a satire. Don’t get offended and don’t start becoming “proper” about it. Instead, recognize it and learn to laugh at the absurdity of our everyday lives.

    South Park has an extremely obnoxious and sometimes disturbing sense of humor. It doesn’t deserve to be appreciated or even aired as the storyline, characters, jokes and animation are all extremely bad. South Park is possibly the worst show I’ve ever seen.

    Dont let the packaging fool you into buying something that may damage your hair.
    3  Coconut oil: To have a beautiful, shiny hair and stimulate hair growth,
    give yourself a scalp massage with warm coconut oil once a week.
    It only leaves a lustrous sheath on the hair and
    gives it a beautiful look rather and the greasy effect
    that is left by the usual hair oils. Ideally, prepare the day before dilution and in the evening, put the mixture
    in the palm of your hand and apply and hold
    your hair and scalp. 5 ml Kalonji Oil mixed
    at a hot drink after supper gives a quiet sleep all during the night.

    After application the hair is simply dried, either naturally
    or using a drier. Likewise, using imported shampoos and conditioners from a tropical country when your climate is cold and temperate is not such a

      You obviously didn’t watch the episode, the show was clearly trying to be emotional and portrayed Britney in a sympathetic light. The episode was criticizing the media and the American public for their blood lust. The episode even compared Americans’ desire to see Britney destroyed to Roman gladiator combat and human sacrifice which most people agree are barbaric. If the show was attacking people just for being interested then they would have never bothered to have the boys try to save her or make the episode such a dark and unsettling one. If the show was what you thought it was, then they would have portrayed all parties involved badly. They also would have made more jokes about average American people being sheep rather than portraying them as cruel and bloodthirsty like they did on that episode.

      Oh and btw, it’s Britney not Brittany.

South Park has never in a million years had this, and just throw jokes in to make people watch.

    Why the is every complaining about there being no punch line? Why does there have to be constant punch lines in order for it to be considered comedy? It’s a ridulous show. It’s not standup. I think constant punch lines are cheesy as fuck. If the comedy isn’t for you, put on Simpsons or maybe watch Jeff Dunham and his hilarious puppets. That’s probably the comedy you’re looking for.
