South Park - Season 24

I guess this is the start to the new season on September 30th. It's an hour long "Pandemic Special". There's going to be so much material for the new season.

Re: Huh... nobody cares about S23 of South Park?

If this pandemic had had happened in the 2000s during GWB's time, South Park would have been calling it a hoax (like they did with climate change). They were far more right wing sympathetic back then.

Just a one off episode. No word on when the new season will start.

They usually start in September but I'm guessing the pandemic has affected it. I'd probably be more excited if this was 10-15 years ago. They really haven't done a great job with satire in recent years.

Looks like they're still going to be running the Randy-the-Pot-Farmer into the ground this season.

Tegridy Farms

Yeah, I love me some Randy and no one can make a situation worse through disproportionate overreactions quite like him. But seeing that it's tied to the Tegridy thing is disappointing. Enough already.

The thing about Randy is that the humor in his storylines generally revolved around him developing an intense, consuming interest in something, then moving on to the next thing. He was always fickle and mercurial, and the pot farm should have only lasted for a handful of episodes at most.

The new South Park episode is my wet dream. Disney started Coronavirus. I always knew it to be true.

It had some moments, I think I was more excited to have SP back again. What really got us laughing was.
Spoiler:
The new "teachers" shooting Token when the fighting broke in class.

Randy carried the episode (as is the new normal). The rest was pretty forgettable.

Needing to get Butters to build a Bear was funny and tugged the heart strings.

Randy being so fucking right about the folly of investing in China was so vindicating.

Yes! My wife came downstairs to see what I was watching when she heard me laughing so much.

The cops becoming substitute teachers and pumping Token full of lead and calling it "Covid-related" was pretty damn funny,

Re: South Park - Season 24

Finally got around to this episode. Like the other poster, I had to pause a few times because I was missing jokes from laughing at the previous. I know I am a minority, but I just think this show keeps getting better, merging serious commentary with dick joke humor. Cartmen's Social Distancing song is a series highlight to me. I gotta' get me one of those sticks...errr, and a pangolin.

Re: South Park - Season 24

Yeah this one is weird. It's not like they couldn't write during the pandemic plus their production is super quick. Makes very little sense at this point.

Re: South Park - Season 24

I wonder if they'll do the Capitol riot.

Even without the nutjob in facepaint and horns, that's prime grist for the South Park mill.
