South Park: Season 21 Photos
Tv Season Info
Cast & Crew
Freed from its serialized structure, "South Park" looks poised for an array of damning observations in the weeks to come - exactly when need it.
After twenty years of skewering public figures from Steve Jobs to Donald Rumsfeld to Britney Spears, Parker and Stone seemed stumped.
The episode manages to take both approaches while it works through the horror of knowing Trump has his finger on the big red button.
A mixed start to the season that will hopefully find its feet soon enough.
As these subplots prove, Parker and Stone are more than capable of dreaming up an episode of Trump-free irreverence. They just need to fully commit to it.
It's a sad message to end a sad season on, and even more pathetic in 2017.
So, no, it hasn't been a great season by South Park standards, but it has been one that reminds us that the show remains as relevant as ever. Not bad 21 years in.
This year yielded a handful of instant classics and reminded us that South Park is at its best when the focus remains on Stan, Kyle, Cartman and the rest of the gang, not on the crazy world outside South Park, Colorado.
... they came out punching with kid's gloves for the season 21 premiere.
... if it's going to purposefully invoke a divisive and violent moment in recent American history-it had better come prepared to actually engage with the thing it's riffing on.
Audience Reviews for South Park: Season 21
Mar 18, 2019South Park attempts to get back to episodic adventures in its twenty-first season. Yet while it's far less serialized than previous seasons, there are still a couple of ongoing story thread; such as Cartman's dysfunctional relationship with his girlfriend. And despite their pledge to avoid the low hanging fruit of Trump jokes, Trey Parker and Matt Stone can't help but to throw some shade his way. The sociopolitical satire continues to be smart and edgy, taking on victim culture, political correctness, and several pop-culture trends. However, they push the raunchiness a little far in a couple of episodes, and if one's not hip the current trends a lot of the humor will fall flat. Season 21 of South Park isn't that bad, but it's nowhere near the highs of the early seasons.Dann M Super Reviewer

Oct 25, 2020Another funny awsome season
Jan 17, 2020the last two episodes are pretty South Park, awesome
Dec 07, 2019The last few seasons are utter garbage.I rarely laughed at any jokes nothing made sense,Cartman wasnt evil.Very bad!
Oct 06, 2019South Park is still funnier and cleverer than Family Guy and The Simpsons with its sarcasm, wit and social commentary. You'd think with the ridiculousness of a Trump presidency, this type of subject matter would be right up South Park's street, however many of the Trump jokes aren't that funny. My favourite part of this season was Heidi's character transformation. I look forward to seeing more from Heidi in the following season.
Sep 24, 2019Season 21 is a return to form for South Park after some average seasons where serialization and politics sadly took over but now with no continuity and a return to classic South Park where each new episode is their own original thing. A much needed change was finally made for the better. "White People Renovating Houses" while the took our jobs rednecks and Randy Marsh weren't as brilliant as they usually are Eric Cartman certaintly was. "Put It Down" Is a fantastic South Park episode with Craig and Eric Cartman being simply hilarious in this and the take on Americans‘ fear of a potential war with North Korea being excellent. "Holiday Special" is a weaker episode it does have some good Randy moments but overall it's rather weak. "Franchise Prequel" I felt was a real accurate depiction of Mark Zuckerberg and how he probably behaves in real life, but the kids aren't memorable in this except for professor Chaos who is actually succeeding at being evil. "Hummels & Heroin" Is another weaker one with that kid Marcus being really annoying, but it is nice to see Grandpa Marsh again and he's probably at his best since S1 Death here. "Sons a Witches" Is just another great and memorable episode with the fathers being absolutely hilarious in this episode and Heidi and Cartman both manage to amuse quite a bit. "Doubling Down" Has Eric Cartman being really great again, being really manipulative and racist that's how I like him best. "Moss Piglets" should have used Jimmy, Timmy and Nathan more as unlike handicar they are really great in this one, and so was Heidi transforming into the female version of Cartman to simply hysterical results, but the episode does fall apart in the second act unfortenately. "Super Hard PCness" is bad. Terrance and Phillip were ridiculously aged a lot and Kyle just acts so out of character what happened to him he used to be cool but now to be honest I don't even know why Stan is still best friends with him as he's always being so whiny about everything it's been going on since season 18 and I don't like it at all Kyle needs to go back to the boy he once was ending with the bombing of Canada was just so unnecessary. "Splatty Tomato" Is such a weak conclusion with nobody being great here and only two good scenes: The Chicago Bears Super Bowl Shuffle song playing and that everyone vomits about the thought of two co-workers being intimate with each other oh and the Heidi/Cartman break up I really hope they're through now as I want Cartman to be truly free and Heidi was holding him back and quite frankly was really annoying aswell she never was a good character. So In the end South Park Season 21 is a good season It definitely felt like an improvement over the previous couple of seasons with a funnier approach and less serialized storytelling it had great episodes like Put It Down and Sons a Witches but some bad ones aswell like Holiday Special, Super hard PCness and Splatty Tomato. So the season is far from great and I would only rank Seasons 18 and 20 below this but it is great to know that they got rid of the serialization so the only way to go from here is upwards. Best Episode: "Put It Down" Worst Episode: "Super Hard PCness"
Jan 01, 2019This season has some interesting moments but overall is not worth more than one watch.
