Critic Reviews for South Park Season 20

All Critics (11) | 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.

Our real world out-South Parked South Park. The show used to be the kind of show that shocked its audience; now, it feels like we're the ones who are doing the shocking and South Park is telling us, "Hey, maybe that's too much."

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.

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.

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.

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.

    Worst South Park season ever
  • Oct 23, 2017
    Once again using the over-arching story technique from last season, season 20 mostly succeeds in providing laughs and smart commentary, however, the second half of the season really suffers and finishes with more of a whimper than a bang. 3/5 stars

    Getting worse every year... Sad

    South Park is focusing heavily on a political left gamble here, alienating half the nation viewers. Some interesting focus on Season continuity from the past is nice, as well as computer-culture. Show is going down-hill, however, taking a weirdly pious approach towards the Clinton campaign.

    Another great and hilarious South Park season.

    It's been a few years since I watched a full season of south park from start to finish and must say that I'm extremely impressed! I love the fact that it was one continuous story, with brilliant writing, exploring a few avenues of political discourse that somehow came together at the end. Most importantly, it was fucking hilarious, 'member?

    South Park's twentieth season starts out strong, but unfortunately misses the mark by the end, jumbling too many stories at once and leaving other story arcs unresolved, resulting in a rather convoluted conclusion.
  • Dec 30, 2016
    South Park Season 20 isn't as funny or clever as the classic seasons, nor does it have the ability to escape writer's block in order to tell a different story each episode per season like did the past seasons, and I haven't enjoyed a single episode of Season 20.
