People can't get past the surface meaning of the jokes and episodes because people expect mindless explanations of what they're watching like most shows out there. People are too lazy to look at the metaphorical and under the surface situations, which are about 90%of south park's jokes
@ButtersLeopold, and thats why South Park hasn't really gone downhill like other similar cartoons (Family Guy, Simpsons) South Park and Futurama are the only two I can think of that stayed great throughout their whole run(with South Park still being on)
@ButtersLeopold, yeah but South Park really doesn't hide at all what they're trying to say. I think people just don't like it because they don't want to tolerate crude humor for the sake of satire. I think it's an alright show, but I mean, they could just as easily watch the Daily Show.
@Comment Stalker, yeah i find the crude humor a little hard to swallow, but the social commentary is top notch
@Assassinator2399, dude lets hang out. Haha
Even if you aren't a fan of the show, you have to admire the level of satire some of the episodes had.
@Brach Obama, but the sad episodes, like when kenny died, still gets me whenever I watch it
@GalaxyHolder, he dies quite often:/ unless you mean when he's a potato
@BazTheFraz, yes, it's so depressing, I believe it's the stem cell one
@Brach Obama, it does annoy me when people discredit satire when they don't understand it
@Brach Obama, i found it interesting but the lanquage was too crude
@BazTheFraz, he doesn't die as often in the newer episodes
This last season was hilarious.
@CrazyRightWinger, I liked how they went off of previous episodes with each new episode like Randy as Lorde and so on. Kind of a change up for South Park
People call me gay because they don't realize how fabulous I am
@FalconLoverMLG, you've got it in you kid. I like the way you think!
@hurt urself pooping, thank you lol
@hurt urself pooping, I'm very humbled
When half your material relies on dicks, butts, and poop, it's going to look stupid
@Kangaroo Jacked, more social commentary, really. at least the episode subjects, content, kinda.
@Kangaroo Jacked, This is very true. Good satire shouldn't rely on overly childish jokes. Main reason why i liked futurama a lot more than south park.
They hate us cuz they ain't us
@LostKatt, just saw this with my girlfriend and I can't stop exclaiming to her that tigers have night vision goggles
I think now would be a good time to point out my username
@Free Hat, free hat! yeah!
Once you understand that they are placing 4th graders in current events, the show improves tenfold
I wasn't allowed to watch this when I was a kid and now I just choose not to.
@Ruupasya, congratulations. You are officially an adult.
While most episodes are clever satire, most are also over-the-top provocative, offensive, and just too much. At least in my opinion
@Captaincowtj, thats the point
@Captaincowtj, they go over the top a lot just to prove a point. At the end of almost every episode one of the characters usually justifies everything with a little speech
@Jdieppa68, I understand, it's not that it offends me (which it doesn't), it that it is so over the top that it loses its appeal for me. I prefer a more subtle humor, but some people like south park's style.
@Captaincowtj, i love how you cant voice your opinion without getting downvoted
@Flying Oranges, ehh, I don't really mind. It's the Internet. If you're an (opinion A) surrounded by a group of (opinion B)s, then you have to expect things like this.
@Captaincowtj, Well said.
Yep, like when gluten makes your dick fly off. Genius
@mrmcmo, they're making fun of people that think gluten does horrible things to you
@mrmcmo, most people can have gluten, unless you have celiac disease like my sister, which is an autoimmune disorder that damages the intestines if those that have the disease eat gluten containing foods.
I’ve watched quite a bit of this. It’s a dumb-f|_|ck show. Sometimes enjoyable, but real dumb.
Its also highly partison.
It's a very well thought out show, but I just don't enjoy watching it. Sue me.
Best. Show. Ever. Trey Parker and Matt Stone (creators, main writers and almost every voice for every episode) are geniuses.
People still think it's funny to say I don't have a soul...
