Critic Reviews for South Park Season 23

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

It works quite well as an editorial; the problem is that it isn't particularly funny.

The best hope for "Mexican Joker" is that when all is said and done, it will look better in the context of a fully-realized story.

"Shots!!!" isn't really the epic anniversary celebration South Park deserved... While this episode's vaccine rodeo antics offered plenty of laughs, the Tegridy Farms storyline is rapidly losing steam.

It might surprise some, however, to find out that [Mexican Joker] actually... kind of worked?

Sep 30, 2019 | Full Review…

I'm so damn tired of writing this, but Cartman and Kyle isn't South Park's version of Batman and the Joker, destined to do this forever. Their rivalry ran its course 10 years ago and is perhaps my least favorite part of the show.

Audience Reviews for South Park: Season 23

  • Jan 10, 2020
    Another improvement over past seasons and the best since Season 17. But again not without its faults. Season 23 isn't as heavily serialized in nature as the past few, but it does feature a protagonist switch: Randy Marsh is now the main character. And he does have some good moments but the problem is that I don't really like him all that much as a main character I think he works better when not being overused. I still love him but I always liked Chef as the best adult character and I prefer the boys and Butters much better. Tegridy Farms lost steam and stopped being funny pretty quickly but that isn't to say some of the Tegridy farms storyline episodes weren't good. Band in China and Let Them Eat Goo are actually fantastic South Park episodes and some of their very best in recent years. The 300th episode wasn't all that special and Mexican Joker, Tegridy Farms Halloween Special, Season Finale and Christmas Snow were mediocre. But Board Girls, Turd Burglars and Basic Cable more than made up for it. Also nice to see that after 23 seasons South Park can still offend and outrage people to the point of getting banned in China that is so amazing, speaking of the episode Band in China South Park having the courage to call out Hollywood for giving in to China in order to make profit in their market is admirable. Overall South Park Season 23 is a very funny, relevant and entertaining season that while it does have some faults, is their best in 5 years. Best Episode: "Let Them Eat Goo" Worst Episode: "Tegridy Farms Halloween Special"

    Very funny South Park humor

    Great season. Made fun of everyone and gave me hope for humanity

    I found this to be a funny and solid season. Didn't feel there was a weak episode in the bunch. The creators decided to shake things up as they do from time to time. The focus is shifted somewhat from the main boys to the supporting cast which works pretty well. We get a fair amount of Randy Marsh and surprisingly his stupidity and selfishness never gets old just through the sheer force of his personality and Trey Parker's delivery. Overall, I recommend this.

    I am so disappointed in all you "fans" who are saying Matt and Trey have lost their touch. Time and time again, they prove just how much they don't care about bad reviews or "fan preferences." They're going to continue pushing every viewer to his/her limits and making controversial and insensitive episodes that ridicule extremist groups, corrupted leaders, and all the overly sensitive people of the modern age, and I'm going to continue watching because I, unlike many of you, can appreciate these writers' storytelling style and expert ability to keep the same jokes funny for 20+ years.

    Another hit-or-miss season, like all of those of the past few years. The opening episode, "Mexican Joker," pretty much sets the tone for the season: topical, interesting/off-beat, only occasionally funny. Trey Parker was clearly reading feedback during the season, as at times Randy would seem to break the fourth wall and talk about the unpopularity of the Tegridy Farms story line. I actually appreciated how they unapologetically stuck to the story line for so long after it had overstayed its welcome. "Let Them Eat Goo" and "Turd Burglars" were among the funnier episodes (although the latter was one of the most off-putting episodes of the series!). A couple episodes stand out in particular: "Board Girls," which skewers the issue of transgender athletes, and "Band in China" was totally the best episode in years.

    Always funny. Never disappoints
  • Dec 14, 2019
    They are trying to get canceled by not trying to make quality stories, and laugh as they renew their contract
  • Dec 12, 2019
    Nice to see them mix it up, it was a good season
  • Dec 08, 2019
    So far this season is shaping up to be another great one. As always, I may not always agree with the takes or opinions of the writers of South Park, they still bring the laughs! Something shows like The Simpsons (once my favourite show of all time) have completely lost sight of, much to my chagrin. Tackling topics that so called 'comedians' of the last several years are far too afraid to so much as joke about, it doesn't surprise me that few critics have reviewed this season, thus far, and the ones who did took offense, completely missing the point of South Park, in doing so. Once again, South Park is the canary in the coalmine of today's mock outrage culture and the rebirth of the PC insanity they mocked so many years ago.
