Don't worry about Nugget, I doubt he can string a sentence together.

Adritch: These were the episodes last season that dealt with poltics, a social issue, or a current event.
1- Smug Alert
2- Cartoon Wars I
3- Cartoon Wars II
4- Million Little Fibers
5- Manbearpig
6- Mystery of the Urinal Deuce
7- Miss Teacher Bangs a Boy
8- Go, God, Go! I
9- Go, God, Go! II

Hell, even these episodes dealt with some sort of current thing:
1- Return of Chef
*The Hayes Issue*
2- Hell On Earth 2006!
*Send-up of a current MTV show.*

The only episodes that weren't current event heavy were
Tsst!
Make Love, Not Warcraft
Stanley's Cup

Hell, even Tsst! and Make Love, Not Warcraft will lose their luster a few years from now when that dog whisperer is no one and the World of Warcraft is replaced by some other game.

I also detest the fact that you assume those that like the older seasons automatically like fart jokes and don't like satire. Guess what seasons are included in the "old" seasons? Seasons five and six. They were the best seasons because the satire was present, but you weren't slammed over the head with it. The satire now and the politics of the show are starting to become the point of the show. It's less a comedy show now. The well-done jokes of season five and six have been replaced by quick jokes to satisfy base needs while the meat of the show is an issue. Look at My Future Self 'N Me. Good social episode. But, there was a large amount of jokes that made the episode excellently funny. You could completely disagree with the politics of the show and still like it. Now let's say you like George Clooney and believe that we need to be more supportive of environmental causes. That episode makes you feel like sh*t because it puts ALL liberals in the same boat. The jokes now aren't as good. Cartman walking through the streets of San Fran acting as though the city itself is going to do him in is funny for one second. After that, it's just filler.
That's how it's down here on the farm!

i like both new and old i don't care. The old ones are fun to watch cus I think about what was going on at the time that ep aired. It kind of takes you back. And the new ones are nice and Fresh. The show still shocks me.. I love it. I don't think there is a show that gets me to laugh out loud like South Park.

To be honost I like all of them. I mean each season has its own kind of bad episode but i think they are all good so far . The best seasons in my eyes would have to be season 8,7, and 4

Personally I'm not sure how to answer this one. The older episodes were just great but the newer ones you seem to be able to watch on repeat more often. But it amazes me to just see how much the show evolved from the older episodes. I think season five marked the start of the overall better episodes but I personally favor season four.

there is no fine way to define which episodes are better, being that each season comes out at a certain time and people have different tastes for things as the years drone on and south park tries to adapt to that..Personally though after last seasons crappy episodes its kinda relief to watch these new episodes...

by better i don't mean what the episodes rotate around. If you actually go back and watch some of the episodes as a comparison you can see that season five stands a huge marker. From there they kind of take a leap into a more professional way of obstructing the show. For example in season five they started to use a more linear format for episodes which enabled them to put more into each episode. Also via season five, Butter's was introduced as more of a main character and Kenny was officially killed, this gave the show a new pitch. Animation also seemed to get progressively better. I'm not saying which episodes are better because there are a lot of different ways to view that statement I'm just implying that the show really seemed to evolve as it writers became more aware of the works.

Season 4 is probably the best season ever, along with Season 6.

I like the newer eps better. The old ones were just to simple and not as funny. But the newer ones are funnier and are more complex and they deal more with current events.
