South Park—Season 15

8.5 Overall Score
Story: 8/10
Acting: 8/10
Visuals: 9/10

Another strong season of South Park

Some stand alone episodes don't work


Michael Moore is out to help the 99%

The kids of South Park are back.  They are facing a number of new problems.  The boys learns that reading contracts is important, comedy is a science, size does matter, Canadian royal weddings are weird, EA Sports is a shrewd negotiator, turning ten can make everything seem like crap, deal with Mexico/Texas relations, battle WikiLeaks, find out why guys go to musicals, represent the 99%, discover the poor kids in school, learn the truth about Pilgrims, and uncover the secret of City Wok.

South Park—Season 15 ran from April 27, 2011 to November 16, 2011.  This season was developed at the same time that Trey Parker and Matt Stone were working on their award winning The Book of Mormons musical.


Slash in the stars and the hearts of children everywhere

South Park continues to be strong by pushing the limit.  Trey and Matt push the current events so much that it feels a bit strange when the series goes into a standard non-topical episode or they fall back on an old event (like The Matrix references in “Ass Burger”).  Watching the series after it has aired is a bit odd in that it feels like a bit of a time capsule to see what was trending.

The season also marked concern for those who believed that Trey Parker and Matt Stone were possibly giving up the series.  In “You’re Getting Old” and “Ass Burger”, Stan finds that the world is turning to crap around him (due to being cynical) and that he is tired of the weekly monotony of a life that seems to just reset.  Many people took this as a warning that the show was going to end soon, but Matt and Trey fixed those fears by signing up for another five seasons.


You need to get real!

South Park is still a fun creative series that I still look forward to.  It is amazing what the creators can get away with and they do it in the way that both To Kill a Mockingbird and All in the Family work…children are “innocent” and Cartman might be a racist, but he’s always proven wrong.  South Park continues to be fun so make sure that you tune in and continue to watch one of the smarter series on TV that is aging gracefully.
