News & Interviews for South Park: Season 22
To say this was one of the sharper starts to a season would be stretching it, but one has to admire the series' persistence.
If we're willing to be decent people, that frees Parker and Stone up to misbehave to their hearts' contents.
Yet South Park is still trapped, to some degree, by having launched in 1997... It was a lot easier to let the show have its fun back then, without worrying about its cultural impact.
A believable mea culpa that is still executed in the funniest way possible.
It gives us the usual bit of shock and disturbance as we prepare to accept this show back into our lives again, but also, it sets up multiple potential storylines for what should be an amusing story-thread.
The show insists it's sorry. And it took two episodes to fully say it. So that's a start, maybe.
Despite the sarcastic title, Stone and Parker (who, as ever, wrote the script) genuinely apologized for not taking global warming seriously.
Consistently, South Park has been at its best when it addresses gun control.
While recent seasons of South Park took a more serialized approach to its sordid storytelling, Season 22 is all about skewering anything and everything making headlines in recent months.
They've asked if the town could be rebuilt to survive this woke decade or if it needs to be cancelled altogether in its most recent #cancelsouthpark marketing campaign. It doesn't need to be cancelled, but it's lost its way.
Audience Reviews for South Park: Season 22
Jan 19, 2021Not that good, but it did introduce Tegridy Farms.
Nov 28, 2020Just too awesome 😍e
Oct 26, 2020The Amazing thing is that the season was funny
Oct 25, 2020Just what a show i mean its rude but amazing
Sep 17, 2020kinda feels like they lost they touch
Oct 25, 2019I have never laughed so hard because of comedy deprived from politics, mockery and other life issues before. I like how you keep the show 'homemade'.
Oct 17, 2019An excellent succinct season that had a powerful message and a happy ending with laughs all along the way. So much integrity 😁
Sep 27, 2019Season 22 Is an improvement over the past 4 seasons but remains hit or miss with some really good episodes but also unfortunately some stinkers. "Dead Kids" is terrific, Eric Cartman and Randy Marsh are so good here, Cartman's frustration about Black Panther being so popular and Randy's sadness over Sharon's supposed menopause are really funny. "A Boy and a Priest" is solid but a much less funny version of so many better episodes about this subject matter that we'd gotten before. "The Problem with a Poo" It's very nice seeing Mr.Hankey back and he has some really funny things to say, but the other subplot about PC Principal and Strong Woman having PC babies together isn't all that funny to me. "Tegridy Farms" Is excellent. Everything here is great from Randy's farm and the boys to Towelie who for the first time ever isn't an annoying character that ruins the episodes and of course the comments and jokes about vaping are so funny here. "The Scoots" is okay but could've been much funnier but still it has a very strong use of Mr. Mackey and Kenny and some good jokes. I also really like the story it almost felt like classic South Park. "Time To Get Cereal, Nobody Got Cereal" this two-parter is really funny with the return of Al Gore who steals the show per usual due to many hilarious one-liners, a terrific use of Satan himself who also returned thankfully, a well crafted, intricate storyline and many great jokes that really worked and it also has an apology from Parker and Stone to Al Gore about the climate change/global warming and a fantastic metaphor about how we all put the problem of destroying the planet aside for future generations to think about. It's a smart and needed story. "Buddha Box" isn't all that funny to me and it's central theme could've been handled so much better also PC Principal and strong woman are back again and I really don't like these characters and PC babies just aren't that funny to me. "Unfulfilled" has a way too big of an emphasis on politics instead of storytelling and humor but Jeff Bezos is hilarious. "Bike Parade" is better with Randy and Towelie continuing to bring the goods as their Tegridy Weed delivered at your door is a great concept and Santa Claus makes a very welcome appearance asking about Mr. Hankey and that amazing exit line was an absolute highlight of the season. But still this story is overly serious and again overly concerned with American culture. So in the end South Park Season 22 is the best since 17 with Tegridy Farms and Al Gore but it still has it's weak episodes and is again a season that I would rank near the bottom unfortunately. Best Episode: "Tegridy Farms" Worst Episode: "Buddha Box"
Jul 24, 2019They let politics take over their show and now its unwatchable. I don't know how the DNC managed to pay these guys off but they effectively forced a whole generation of man-children to put childish things behind them. I think that was exactly the opposite of what they were trying to do.. which was use their influence to take control of their viewers political stance. I hope history remembers the good seasons and not this leftist communist brainwashing.
Mar 14, 2019I really don't think the quality of the show is declining because of Trey and Matt, but because South Park is on it's 22nd season and the formula is getting old. My Love for South Park will never die, but I hope this series finds it's footing again.
