The Day South Park Died

An exploration into the history of South Park, its unique writing style, and the episode that sparked its downfall to mediocrity.

*NOTE: It's not my intention to offend anyone's religious beliefs. Because of that, I've blurred out the image of Muhammad in this video. I hope everyone can understand and respect that decision (even if you may not agree with it) and still enjoy the video. Thank you!

    I stopped watching after the constant Trump stuff and the new principle. If I give it another chance I feel like I'd have to watch all them to get where the story is and I'm not sure I care to. At least at the moment.

    I haven’t liked South Park in four years. Can’t ever make it halfway through each season as it airs I just don’t find it funny and season 22 was especially grating with the constant red dead jokes (yes I played it and no it’s still not funny)

    I'd like to see south park be more provocative like they were in seasons 1-14 they haven't made a really controversial episode since 200 and 201 I think the show has suffered In recent years because of that unwillingness to push people's buttons and be politically incorrect

    I agree with a lot of his assessments and I think it was an absolutely amazing video. With all of that said I kind of disagree with the end conclusion. While it’s true that the serialized format had a lot to do with their failed season, I would pose that due to the type of PC counter culture (that I don’t disagree or agree with) is something that the South Park audience is against due to its nature. And therefore, the viewers didn’t like the large criticisms and mockery towards the right as well as President Trump. My opinion would be that this played an large, albeit, smaller part than the serialized nature contributing to its “death”

    Not talking about Trump would not make them tone deaf. Yes he’s a phenomenon, but he’s just the president. This show has been around for over 20 years and they’ve managed to get through 3 different administrations without having to include the current President in every other episode. There is PLENTY of other non political things going on in the world to satirize. At the end of the day as long as it’s hilarious then they’re still golden. Season 22 was great! South Park is still the goat

    as probably the biggest south park fan, i do agree with this video. i would say sp lost it's writing quality around the time 'Your getting old' was released, due mainly to matt and trey's disinterest in the show, however, 'oh, jeez' is a great definitive conclusion.

    South park died in season 19 with the introduction of PC principle. It was a slow cancer, the first hints were episodes 200 and 201 when Comedy Central censored them, but they briefly battled back that cancer into remission, only for it to comeback with vengeance in season 19, and it's dead now. Seasons 1-5 were the beginnings, 6-18 represent the peak, and 19-present is the death moan.
