| Best social satire ever, yet rarely seen as such
South Park is probably the most misunderstood show in TV history.

Sure, it does have fart jokes but what it has really involved into is a show that depicts a wide range of current events, pop cultures references, social problems through the lenses of a group of 10 year olds and all the wacky characters that surround them.

The fact that the drawings are fairly simple also makes a lot of people shy away from it, but actually this show has a completely unique approach to several divisive or thought-provoking subjects. To name a few:

  • 'The Hobbit" looks at how photoshopped photos makes society expectations of a woman's body hard to reach and the amount of pressure it may put on little girls (whilst taking hilarious jabs at Kanye West and Kim Kardashian)


  • "You're getting old" takes you over the nightmare that is feeling like you might be mentally older than you friends and that may make left out


  • Console Wars episodes dive into the consumerism involving Black Friday, video games and the world's obsession with Game of Thrones


These are all great episodes and I think the show if anything has aged well with time.

The other brilliant thing about South Park is that because each episode gets produced in the span of week, it can be more up to date than any scripted show - just this season it referenced Kavanaugh nomination controversy in an episode even before he was eventually confirmed.

Second 10/10 I have given on IMDb and South Park is well deserving of it.

Trivia

Trey Parker claimed in an interview on The Project 2 that his favourite celebrity reaction from his and Matt Stone's antics in their careers was from Jennifer Lopez, who walked by him at a party and just pushed him. He assumed it was because he wore her dress to an academy awards show years ago. They have also made fun of her in season seven, episode five of South Park if no other time, as Cartman had a hand puppet of her.


Quotes

Mr. Garrison: You little turds, you ruined my life for the last time


Goofs

Exactly who is related to whom in the Marsh family is never consistent. Early episodes imply that Jimbo and Marvin (Stan's grandfather) are on Sharon's side of the family, whereas more recent ones imply they are on Randy's side. Being on Sharon's side makes sense for Jimbo, as he has a different last name. However, Marvin's last name is, indeed, confirmed to be Marsh. Matt Stone revealed in an interview that Jimbo Kerns is Randy's half-brother.


Crazy Credits

Canadian broadcasts on commercial TV include a disclaimer warning of adult content -- which is immediately followed by "South Park's" own tongue-in-cheek version.


Alternate Versions

On the commercials promoting the episode "The Succubus", Ms. Crabtree was shown as the new school cafeteria chef. When it aired, the new cafeteria chef was a new character named Mr. Derf.
