Yes you are making total sense.The boys do act like adults now instead of the pottymouth 3rd graders we knew before.I think the main reason for this is because matt and trey have matured more.

I think it's much better now.

In the first couple of seasons, they were just establishing characters, and their fanbase consisted mainly of people who just thought it was funny watching kids swear. A TV series can only live off that for very long.

I think the Osama Bin Laden episode was a huge step in the wrong direction. It was pretty much taking a very serious issue, and prancing all around it, showing off the point that they're not scared of talking about it.

Since then, they've really jumped in and have drawn logical conclusions about a range of important issues, while still being fresh and funny. It's not easy for a sitcom to actually make a point about anything without ending up as being totally lame and unfunny, but South Park has mastered that.

They still have some fun episodes, like Critter Christmas and Tsst, where they just have a bit of fun with the characters and don't try to make any big important comment. These episodes are pretty important - they just try to be as funny as they possibly can. And that's the main reason that people watch South Park, for the funnies.

I've been watching South Park off and on since it started, but I've only really become a big fan since around about when seasons 4-5 started showing in Australia, which would have been about 2002. Now I think it's the best thing on TV.

If it had've continued doing what it was doing in the first season, it wouldn't have lasted ten seasons. I think it's way better now.

Yes but it seems they take so much time to get there point across that they forget to be funny all together.

I think the last two series have brought the quaulity back. Being a Scot and watching the ginger episode was fantastic and seeing cartman saving the jew (kidding) class. I live in Ireland so we get the shows very patchy.

i think it is going good but the new episodes are not as good as some of the older ones. But so far it is going good (for now?)

I think the second half of season 10 is gonna be much better.They have alot of things to make fun of:Steve irwin's death,Mel Gibson drunk,teachers having sex with students(which seems to be happening alot these days)and tons of other stuff too.

I think the first half of season 10 was funnier than the 2nd half of season 9 so tecnicly it's going uphill.It all depends on the 2nd half of season 10.
