Geez... not sure if anyone here watches this show, but the last episode left me a little choked up (I know, right... from "South Park?").

Wow that was surprisingly authentic for the show, just going with playing "Landslide" over the closing montage and not undercutting the idea of it. I'm really interested if they buy themselves out of their Comedy Central contract and bail either now or after the next 6 episodes.

I've never been a faithful viewer of the show or anything, but I get the feeling from seeing stuff online that this was some kind of a special episode or something? I'm intrigued. What made it stand out exactly? What was the plot, and the thing that's making people get emotional about the episode?

Well, as background there's been a marked increase in self reflection and commentary on some of the show's own tropes the last few seasons (see the Mysterion trilogy of episodes, for example), and some behind-the-scenes issues with Comedy Central and censorship for episodes 200 and 201. Tonight's episode was about Matt Stone and Trey Parker feeling isolated from the energy of the show- the pretext is it's set after Stan's 10th birthday party, where he realizes he's getting old/cynical and not liking the things the rest of his friends do. The South Park "twist" (admittedly a little cliche) is that stuff you don't get (like The Police/Bob Dylan to kids, or dubstep to adults) literally sounds like crap. Again, Randy is the token adult who goes crazy trying to prove that he's young, but at the end of it Sharon and Randy have an ostensible conversation actually directed to the audience from Matt/Trey about how they're moving apart, just aren't into what they loved before, and (Randy/Marsh) decide to get a divorce. Then a montage set to Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide" covers how the boys are splitting apart: Kyle and Cartman are hanging out and actually enjoying each other's company, Stan's alone and cynical, and the episode ends with Sharon moving out and Stan just staring at the ceiling in his empty bedroom.

I have no idea if the show's going to be back this fall.

As I mentioned in the TV Talk thread, I loved last night's episode. The movie trailers in particular almost made me have a heart attack. And they were a nice callback to one of my all time favorite SP gags:

I've only seen isolated episodes of this show, mostly because it was on "the naughty/foreign/weird channel" and my parents were vehemently against it, but my oh my what a track record it has. Shame The Simpsons is so shit these days.

I haven't watched last night's yet, but I've thought this season has been terrible for the most part. Worst season of the show so far, at least for my tastes.

I'd say S12 or S13 is the worst, although each had a couple episodes I really loved. "Canada on Strike" and "Eek, a Penis" for the former, "Eat, Pray, Queef" and "Pee" for the latter. S14 had more than a few misfires too, but at least it had "Creme Fraiche."

Honestly, I've enjoyed this half season quite a bit. Both ends of the spectrum, from the Canadian absurdity (redundant) of "Royal Pudding" to the poignant end of last night's episode.

I think the Canadian Royal Wedding scenes were some of the funniest I've seen of South Park. I also thought the Comedybot episode was pretty good. I'd be really sad if they call it quits. It's probably been my favourite show since the 2nd or 3rd season. That said, I couldn't see Parker and Stone letting the show go to shit like the Simpsons has, which I would hate to see even more. As long as they have another outlet for their humour, I'll be happy. Book of Mormon was probably the funniest thing they've done, so I'm sure they've got a lot more in the tank

Yeah, that wedding episode was good. I also liked some parts of the City Sushi vs. City Wok episode. They did a great job showing the massive cultural ignorance here in the west towards Asia in a way that was entertaining. Japanese and Chinese people really do have a terrible time understand each other's English, so that was killing me. The multiple personalities crap was lame though, and annoyed me enough to still water down what I thought was great.

I don't know, to me I'd say this season of South Park is worse than any season of the Simpsons in the last 10 years.
