Critic Consensus: South Park recaptures its sardonic magic in a less serialized season that remains hit-or-miss in its resonance but undeniably funny no matter who it skewers.

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.
The show insists it's sorry. And it took two episodes to fully say it. So that's a start, maybe.
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.
Despite the sarcastic title, Stone and Parker (who, as ever, wrote the script) genuinely apologized for not taking global warming seriously.
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.
