South Park: Season 21 Reviews

October 19, 2018
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.

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.

What I'm saying is, bring back the poop that took a pee.

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.

South Park's knives have clearly been sharpened, which hopefully promises more cutting humor in the weeks to come.

South Park season 21 doesn't promise to be as controversial or edgy as previous years - nor is it as wild as it should be at this point - but there's still enough comedic sustainability to warrant another trip back to this Colorado town.
