Critic Reviews for South Park Season 20

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

"South Park" never takes the easy route nor does it ever take it easy on anyone. For that, it's become a voice worth hearing every year, and one we'll be eager to engage with throughout Season 20.

What is most impressive about South Park is its evolution over time. What began as a show based around entertaining toilet humor has developed into the most popular satirical voice in modern pop culture.

Whether it's two episodes, three, or a full season, South Park has never done well by widening the scope of the series.

South Park is still hilarious, still sharp with its commentary, and still appointment TV for me.

Aug 14, 2017 | Full Review…

South Park's lightning quick production schedule is one of the show's greatest assets. It allows Trey Parker and Matt Stone to lampoon current events at a rate that simply isn't possible on any other animated sitcom.

Sep 19, 2016 | Rating: 6.2/10 | Full Review…

It's the sort of farcical take on a current issue that fans of the series are familiar with and eager to see more of.

While this season certainly had its moments, there were a number of flaws that kept it from reaching its full potential.

With everything this episode, the children's story arc has only just begun; while "Member Berries" offers fewer jokes than perhaps classic South Park episodes, it acts as a rather brilliant set-up for season 20.

That's how you do a reboot, and that's how you do a season premiere. The twentieth season of South Park is going to be interesting.

After a nine-month hiatus, [the] South Park season premiere - a sharp cocktail of hot-button issues - went down sweeter than a 'Member Berries-flavored smoothie.

Audience Reviews for South Park: Season 20

"Member South Park?" "Yeah, I member." Less of a television season than a 10-part miniseries, South Park's 20th season takes on internet trolling and asks the pressing question, was Star Wars: The Force Awakens really that good? When Gerald trolls his son's elementary school's internet message board he stirs up trouble that pits the girls against the boys and leads a Denmark company to develop a troll trace program that could cause universal Armageddon when everyone's online handle is exposed; meanwhile Mr. Garrison does everything he can to sabotage his presidential campaign. One of the funnier recurring jokes of the season are the Member Berries; little berries that say "Member" followed by some '80s pop-culture reference, and causes people to mellow out and feel nostalgic...and like the J.J. Abrams Star Wars reboot. But most of the humor is focused on internet trolling, which is kind of niche. And the episodes are over serialized, to the point that no one episode can stand alone. The crudeness and vulgarity is also problematic and saturates every episode in the troll comments and the boy's pride marches; which involves them exposing themselves in public. Season 20 has its moments, but overall it's one of South Park's weaker seasons.

I don't really like the continous story format, for instance, the Amy Schumer joke was funny the first time but got lame very soon. Same with a lot of the common gags, also was unclear on why Denmark was targeted. It did have its moments though. Also, what happened to the member berries?
