This is the worst episode ever. It's not even remotely funny. It was a massive waste of time. Why waste our time because you assh*les are too stupid to know that ziplining is gay. If you wanted to go ziplining and have fun you should have done some research first idiots. My dad liked this episode. But I thought it was pure crap. I hate you assh*les.

If you watch any show like I ALMOST GOT AWAY or America's most wanted. The actors look nothing like the people they portray.

But people on this site are little kiddies and only watch one show on TV.

I enjoy every episode of South Park because it's smart satire. Some people want the old south park and they will never get it.

lol


Right? I mean, I'm not even North American, I Shouldn't Be Alive doesn't even go on air where I live, but even I got the joke, since there are some similars shows here...
I reeally don't mean to offend anyone but it does seem that most fans usually don't like the episodes that contain jokes that require a little bit a thinking before understanding completely, or you know, a little "thinking outside the box", as someone said a few replies ago. No, the new jokes are no rocket science, but they don't always come at the very moment you watch them. I'm not talking about intelligente, but... it does seem that it's a kind of lazy thinking fandom. Seems like most viewers want pre-digested irreverent humor, instead of well-thought criticism-carrying humor. The first ones were simple and funny, sure, but the last ones, well, they carry a way more powerfull content.
Indeed the old jokes were simpler, and still, they were awesome, but a show can't be recorded for 16 years and never change the jokes. M&T grew up, you like it or not, and some of the jokes got a little bit more... not sure if 'sofisticated' is a nice word to describe South Park humor, but that's the idea. They are slightly more complex now. And apparently, some people can't deal with it.

You know though, it does seem like there's a major age divide in terms of liking certain episodes. I notice how younger viewers just aren't as into the sense of humor in the last few seasons while older viewers are more likely to appreciate the more recent humor, which transitioned from comedy to satire years ago.

As it keeps being said... the writers are in their 40s now. They're too old to do the same stuff they did in college. They write what they enjoy and satirize things that amuse or annoy them as adults. That's what they are and who they are writing for at this point. There's plenty of 20 somethings writing humor for the high school and college crowd and putting it on youtube or getting it on Adult Swim. That's fine as it's good to have stuff for that generation, but South Park quite simply hasn't been that for quite some time now. If people find the humor isn't clicking with them consistently, they should find something in line with their tastes rather than griping because their parents like it now.

You may be right. It's a little sad.

...Oh shitballs, I'm an "older viewer."


I just need a minute. :cry:

But wait, I'm also a twentysomething, just an older twentysomething.

Okay, I feel better. :wink:

Right, but in your late 20s you're still outside of the college humor audience and probably old enough to get most of the references.

I mean, there's no definitive exact age, but roughly around the split between Gen X and Y. If you're old enough to remember a bit of the 80s and all the 90s, there's a lot of value added in recent seasons that seem to not be as well received by those in their teens and early 20s. It's not even the complexity or intelligence as just it not being their generation... much like when my 60ish year old parents reference old comedians and films that have no appeal to me at half their age. Everyone thinks what their parents like is lame. It's a rule of puberty.

Now the 30 somethings are old enough to have preteens and teens who may watch for the outlandish elements and broader humor, but not catch some of the major things in an episode. That said, South Park has grown up with M&T and that the perspective they write from is going to resonate better with someone closer in age. It's just uncommon for a show, particularly one that was started by relatively young guys would last long enough to have that change occur over the show's run.

Not sure if I agree... I just turned 20 and I still get and love pretty much all of the jokes. But it's an interesting point of view :cartmansmirk:

Ah, well, I have next to no actual memory of the 80s, culture-wise; I was six when they ended. I got caught up on a few things, and absorbed quite a few others through popculture osmosis, but there are doubtless still movies and stuff from the 80s I'm completely in the dark about. Thought to be fair, there's probably stuff from the 21st century I'm in the dark about or only know second-had. American Idol, for instance. I know it exists, and I know the premise, but I've never sat down and watched it because I would rather gouge my eyes out with a rusty spoon. This has held true since I was a teenager, so I don't think my age would matter in that instance.
I'm just rambling now. I'll stop. Anyway, yes, I do get a great many references. And hey, you know what I do when I don't get one? I look it up. Google is a wonderful and amazing thing.

This episode was the dumbest one I can ever remember watching. I think it's inevitable that the show is 1 step closer to coming to an end :?

Um, yeah, that's an accurate statement in the same way "You're one day closer to death" is an accurate statement, but I don't think that word, inevitable, means what you think it means...
