South Park is always evolving with the current trends of the market, so the majority of people will think it has actually gotten better, myself included.

South Park gets funnier and funnier. If you don't think so wait a few years and your brain might develop more and you will find the newer ones funnier. Plus the older ones were animated so poorly. Also the characters and their voices were not as well developed as they are now. Stans dad used to be boring but now he is god.

season 10 sucked monkey balls except for stanleys cup and and the first scene the "nagger episode". And except for imagionationland (witch was kind of OK), season 11 have sucked even worse. the older seasons (1 to 9) are still getting better... I have watched them alot.. i mean ALOT alot and they are even better as they where the first time.. I think so and so do you.. its a FACT! But I still have faith that there will be a time which will get us atleast a few more great episodes in the right, better and older spirit.. Hurumph!

I gotta agree, I like South Park & have watched it since the 2nd season, & while they're still some gems, the last two seasons haven't been as great as the first 8 seasons. Personally the main reason i think is either writers block or laziness as it seems since the 10th season the whole show went for being "South Park" to "the Cartman Show". One thing I like about the first 8 seasons or the early years was the show starred Stan, Kyle, Cartman, & Kenny with a colorful cast of characters & creatures, now the majority of the time the show is about Cartman & only Cartman doing some over-the-top storyline, Kyle being against it, & Butters working as Cartman's sidekick, meanwhile no other characters are used anymore Stan get an occasional episode but Kenny hasn't been used a whole much in the last two seasons, sadly Kenny gets more TV time on the intro than the episode.

Here's my opinion on the seasons

Season 1: Good for a first season
Season 2: Better than S1
Season 3: One of the best seasons
Season 4: Good, but not as good as S3
Season 5: Another good season
Season 6: First half was weak, second half was much better
Season 7: Weak, but had some gems
Season 8: Probably the best Season
Season 9: Not as good as S8, but still enjoyable
Season 10: Sucked, worst season
Season 11: Better than S10, but still weak

I think (to me) that the latest episode (Imagination Land: Episode 2) has proven this thread wrong. (Keep in mind, it's an opinion.)

I think if his point was that South Park was more spotty than in earlier seasons, a case he would have. Sadly, he attempted to make a blanket statement about the show as a whole lately, which means all episodes after the topic is made are just as relevant to the topic. Poor way of handling things.
That's how it's down here on the farm!

Honestly, I think the newer episodes are beyond hilarious. I personally like watching the new ones rather than the old. I do agree that there were more funny parts in the earlier seasons, but later seasons are just as great.

I think the newer episodes (Post-season eight) rely too much on repititious humor. Take the episode "The F-Word", for instance. How many times have they tried to make a funny out of those Harley riders making imitation motorcycle sounds with their mouths? The jokes in the new episodes are just used over and over until they're beyond dried out. Another example - Mr. Garrison's Fancy New Vagina (Terrible episode, btw) - half the humor from that episode stemmed from Mr. Garrison trying to become one of the ladies and freaking them out with his disgusting ways.

The older episodes were funny because the jokes mainly came from the boys acting their age. I swear, they must have the mindsets of 40-year-olds in some recent episodes - very wise beyond their years.

Necromancy is fun...LOL


Seriously though, I thought I saw this thread before..We will probably see a few more versions of it with the coming season. South Park changes a lot, every season, not all fans are going to be happy.

the thing i don't like is that they have to paradoize every movie and thing that happened and put every celebrity in an ep. i just don't think its that nesessary. but i'm gonna say that i love the old the new is just kinda dull, but i still enjoy the new i don't hate the new.
My favorite sp characters: Bridon(he's so cute!)
Kyle,Stan, Kenny/Mysterion.

Fave ep: ESM Season 12,Sec fave: Butterballs Season 16

The reason the old episodes will always seem better is that they're the reason you started liking South Park. With every episode they got funnier and funnier, and you expect them to get funnier every time. The only reason the new season may seem dull to some is just that they've gotten so into south park that they're just used to the humor. I personally dont find too many of the older episodes extremely funny (though some are pretty f*ckin hilarious) and the newer ones better, but that's just me. I love the way season 11's started (besides Lice Capades, but the ending made it worth the wait). I don't think they've gone dull at all. The taste of people's humor has changed, and to be successful you have to change a bit as well. That's just my take on it.

My personal fave SP though is the Lord of the Rings one.

To me, the only difference between South Park's season 1 and 14 is simply the visual quality. It's still funny as f*ck xD
