Fourteen episodes sucks!

Postby nicmarlonsp » Mon Mar 17, 2008 12:45 am

Why can't they make a season with seventeen episodes like it used to be???
They could exhibit like nine episodes, have a break, and then more eight episodes...
Just like on the third, the fourth and in the sixth season...

Part of it has to do with their contract...I think...I'm not totally sure...it's kind of a silly contract, IMO. I think it'd be cool to have 3 season runs in a year, bringing the episode average up to 21, which is the norm for most TV shows.

Sorry, around the norm. Each season run is 7 episodes, if there were 3 runs per year, well, 7+7+7=21. :P

Oh, yeah, now I understood...
Hey, do you know when will they actualize the site and show us a preview from episode 1202? Will it be today?

I understand they do a lot of work in a few weeks at a time and so need am ample break... But I can't even see what would be so bad about, at the very least, a mini four episode run in the summer. Sounds more reasonable to me than this joke. (A seven episode summer run would be great, though.)

And yes, there SHOULD be an announcement on 1202 today, but 1201 took until Monday so who knows?

(Oh, and this is in the wrong section of the forum... should be in SP discussion...)

Yeah it is a bit of a rip-off for buying the DVDs but it's not as bad as the UK version of Family Guy season 6, which has only 13 episodes, but they're all really great episodes so when I got it I wasn't disappointed at all, so if you like all the episodes in the season, buy the DVD, you won't be disappointed.

All south park episodes are made with quality. If Matt and Trey would make 24 episode per season, the show would eventually end up like The Simpsons. So, be careful what you wish for!
