I was thinking about it, and who here enjoys south park? All my friends are crazy about it, except for one or two, (and me). I don't want to sound condesending (which isn't likely, considering I don't think I spelt it right ) but it seems like very lame and crude humor. Discussion?

I Don't think its lame or crude at all except sometimes when they make fun of famous celebs and take it overboard. But i love South Park, i think the creators are genius.
#4
Ehh, I don't mind it, although I wouldn't make a special effort to watch it.

It's something you really have to understand, while the jokes are kinda immature and on the level of toilet humor most of the time you have to extract the message / satire the are poking fun at.

I have to say I enjoyed it when I was younger a lot more than I do now. The new episodes aren't as amazing as the old ones though.

i love south park, especially the social commentary that they put into their humor, i like it for the dirty rudeness of the characters and swear, i love it for the social issues that they point out.

that's probably why it attracts both kids and adults

Sometimes it is pure genius and sometimes it is very average. New South Park is basically (to quote someone who i am unsure of) *insert pop culture reference* Let's highlight how funny this is by itself.

ABout the crudeness, hasn't the purpose of animated shows pretty much always been to push the boundaries of controversy ever since the Simpsons first emerged?

I don't like South Park, and never have. I can't believe they're still making that crap after eleven years.
#12
i love it so much i download it as soon as they show it in america.
And on the 7th day God created METAL!

I love it, especially since it's animated with Flash! I love the newer epidodes (Season 7 and up), but I hate the old ones.

Fair enough if you don't like it, i can see why alot of people wouldnt. But it most certainly is not crude humour, alot of it is actually incredibly incisive social critique. The entire point of it is that it laughs at things that are considered "taboo" and backs it up with the idea that surely if it makes a person laugh it must be a positive thing. If some-one believes themselves to be a "victim" (be it ethnically divergent people, gays, adults, kids, terrorists, religious people whatever) of that humour then it is their own fault, not the fault of the person laughing.

If you think i'm just talking out my arse go watch the episodes cartoon wars 1 + 2 and timmy 2000 and you'll see what im getting at.

However, if you dont like it just coz you dont find it funny, then i can understand entirely. Personally, i hate Fraiser i know some of it is very clever and everything but it just annoys the **** out of me

I Love South Park!!!!!

It's the only animated show that entertains me enough to watch every episode. Although, the new episodes aren't as pure gold like the classics.

Frasier is awesome! I'd go on a rant about how good it is but I've been trying to be gracious about other peoples opinions lately

I used to find it hilarious when i was eight and had just started watching the old episodes. Then it went a bit downhill, but pulled itself back up by series four. The newer ones are better though, and i thought cartoon wars put it all in perspective.

I think a lot of the ideas in south park go unnoticed by the majority of viewers, which is a shame, Matt and Trey are very clever guys.

Good Amps

That is all.

South Park is amazing, not so much lately, this recent seaons kinda sucked. Their last amazing episode was the one making fun of 24. The ones before season 10 are all amazing. People need to realize that alot of the episodes actually touch upon very serious issues.

There should be a “it’s ok” option for the poll… it’s not the greatest, but it still isn’t lame…

South Park is great, I've been watching since season 4. If when you watch South Park all you see is toilet humour, than it's way over your head.

The good episodes are when they can tackle a serious issue, but still keep all the characters 'in character'. The relation between so many of the characters are so well defined that pretty much anything they do together can be funny, like Cartman and Butters, Cartman and Kyle, Kyle & Stan against the towns adults etc.

And sometimes some episodes are on a plain silly non-social/non-political plot, but they're still funny. Just not as 'smart' as some of the great ones.

South Park is a satirical cartoon, with a healthy dose of toilet humour thrown into the mix.

The newer season was okay, but not as awesome as previous ones. I personally love the WOW and Guitar Hero episodes.

South park is great because it takes the piss out of everything!

I think the writers are jewish and they take the piss out of themselves more than anything else, for example, cartman rippin on kyle all the time coz hes a jew!

To enjoy it, dont take it seriously, it might seem racist or predjudice at times but it hits the nail on the head a lot of the time because thats the way the world is, only south park takes to the extremes!

Thats what makes it great in my opinion, its not afraid to hold back!

I play so much guitar, I can never watch TV.
But last night, I took a break and watched TV for 30 minutes.

It was the South Park where Cartman gave Kyle AIDS.
They went to see Magic Johnson looking for a cure.
His bedroom full of cash was the cure.

Guess poor people cant get cured.

I like the show.
