** Tropers/Clark Nomah: Related to the Tyler Perry running gag, there's the unfortunate implication that only black people find him funny, as explained when Token is the only one to laugh at Madea's jokes. My white mother and a white friend of mine find Madea to be funny, so in the words of Stan Smith, T&M, your argument is invalid.

** Tropers/Jenko My Name Is Jeff: In the same episode, for me, it's the implication that Broadway is basically a brothel, complete with nonstop repetitions about blowjobs. It manages to be worse than Disney being handled that way in "The Ring". In other words, it's in very poor taste. Also, first Trey and Matt managed to get "shit" uncensored, and now "blowjob" (which was shortened to BJ in "The Ring"). After ''The Stick of Truth'' video game featured graphic female nudity, "The Magic Bush" features a sex scene complete with uncensored female breasts. What I'm saying is, Trey and Matt are coming ''very damn close'' to getting "fuck" and frontal male nudity uncensored--or, in other words, making Comedy Central their number-one bitch by having everything uncensored, thus fulfilling their prophecies.

* Tadd Underwood: For me, a DMOS of the show is the beginning of "Dances with Smurfs". A ginger kid does the morning announcements but is interrupted when a gun-toting maniac busts into the office, claiming that he slept with his wife. To clarify: he heard that a middle-age truck driver named Gordon Saltsi slept with her; the ginger's name is Gordon Stoltski. So after killing a person who happened to intervene, he starts beating the kid up and then murders him, then himself. All heard over a P.A. system. [[DudeNotFunny That is the most fucked-up opening to an episode in television history.]] [[HarsherInHindsight Worse, the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings make this extremely grim.]] I mean, if the episode would've opened with his funeral and explained the reason why he died, then it would've been fine. It'd still be messed up because of the reason behind his death explained, but it would've been better than hearing the spectacle in horrifying detail. It's just the show once again rubbing in our faces: "Gingers are creepy and weird. Therefore, we do not like them." But this episode adds in: "To get our point across, let's kill a minor recurring ginger that you've only seen a few times."

** Um, thats the entire point of the joke...you colossal imbecile. Like, seriously you just wasted an hour of your life falsely accusing the writers of being stupid, not realising that you just proved your own stupidity: The misinformation IS the joke, Cartmen is ignorant and we laugh at his lack of religious knowledge. You LITERALLY believe that we were suppose to take Cartman seriously? You LITERALLY believe that Matt and Trey, two outspoken JEWS, believe the SATIRE they write? And you LITERALLY just spent an hour of your life correcting what was INTENTIONALLY suppose to be wrong? You are without a doubt the dumbest moron on the face of Earth. Of all the whiney Dethroning moments I have ever read yours is by far the cringe-inducinly dumbest I have ever read, I will remember your username and it will forever pop into my head when I think of yhe dumbest people on the planet.



* Tropers/{{Sawnik3000}}: "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers". This is probably the only episode I flat out hate. While most sub-par South Park episodes at least have a few funny or memorable moments, this episode didn't make me smile once throughout. Let's start with the main problem: The Goth Kids. Prior to this episode I was genuinely indifferent towards them, but this episode made me realize how terrible they are as characters. For starters, all four of them are the exact same character. They're all stereotypical goths with no personality traits that separates them in any way. I can see why they had to be a group rather than a single character in "Raisins", but it just seems so pointless now. You could have all but one goth kid removed from the show, and there'd be little to no difference to their scenes. Second, they're extremely one-note. Every one of their appearances is the same: "Oh, we're goths and hypocrites". It's the same damn joke every time. Sure, they were tolerable in "Raisins", but when you do the same joke every time it gets annoying after a while. Okay, there are other one-note characters on the show that work fine. Ex. Tweek's always a nervous wreck, Kevin Stoley's a sci-fi nerd, etc., but they work because they don't get that much screen time and they do different things with those traits each episode. They never seem to do anything new with these characters; it’s always the same joke on repeat; which is really a shame since I see some potential in one of the Goth Kids, Henrietta. Judging by the brief look we get of her mother (who I’ll admit, made me laugh when she just calls Henrietta fatty at the end of the episode) she could actually have a hilariously abusive childhood. Hell, the situations could even be funnier than the ones with Butter’s parents since she actively acts out against them and would deserve what was coming to her, but no, she’s just another one-dimensional goth kid. The only time they ever made me chuckle was during their brief scene in “You Got F’d in the A” where the tall one says he’s so anti-conformist that he’s conforming against the rest of the group and joins Stan’s dance group. See, that’s doing something new with these characters, it was the only time that one of them did something I wasn’t expecting. Every other scene involving them is just a hypocritical comment against one of the characters and maintaining that they’re goths. This is the reason why this episode fails; the Goth Kids are not interesting or even entertaining enough characters to have an entire episode revolving around them. While I personally didn’t like “The Ungroundable”, they at least managed to salvage it by giving part of the focus to Butters, a funny and likable character. Here, none of the main characters are present; it’s just them for the entire 22-minute runtime. So it’s basically the same jokes we’ve heard in the previous Goth Kids-centric episodes, only without a sub-plot to break it up. Okay, I lied, the Vamps are in this episode too. Whoop dee-f***ing do. The Vamps are identical to the Goth Kids in almost every way possible, which I get is supposed to be the joke, but that doesn’t make them any funnier. The thing is though that they add almost nothing to the plot. They’re in the same room as the Goth Kids when they summon Edgar Allen Poe after they team up and kind of fade into the background afterwards. Oh, except for the vamp that’s a grown black man. I think the joke is that he doesn’t belong here, kind of like the brief joke they did about the random black guy in the other N.A.M.B.L.A. meeting in “Cartman Joins N.A.M.B.L.A.”, but while that joke was a quick second-long joke, he has several lines throughout the episode that ultimately boils down to “It’s funny because he’s black”. Again, it could’ve worked if it were just a quick little joke, but they just pound the joke to the ground. Also, like I mentioned before, Edgar Allen Poe plays a role in the episode, and I genuinely thought it was funny that he was revealed to be just another stereotypical goth…for about five seconds until I realized that he’s the exact same character as everyone else here. He brings nothing new in this episode, it’s just the same annoying “We’re goths and we’re also hypocrites” jokes we’ve heard dozens of times before in this episode alone. And like the Vamps, he doesn’t contribute to the plot at all. He fades into the background after he’s summoned until he shoots one of the plants the goths think are turning people into emos (trust me, watching the episode wouldn’t help it make sense) only for it to reveal that it was all an elaborate prank; making his appearance in this episode completely and utterly pointless. Oh, and guess what joke they make about emo kids. Come on, you’ll never guess. Give up? Well the joke is that there’s no difference between goths and emos. You know, almost the exact same joke they made in “The Ungroundable”, only they replace vamps with emos. Yeah, this entire episode is a rehash of “The Ungroundable” minus Butters. I really don’t get the thought process behind excluding the main characters from this episode. The general consensus of that episode was that it was lackluster, but had several great moments courtesy of Butters. So if you take out the saving grace of that episode, it’ll somehow get better? Look, I really did like Season 17, and I respect Trey Parker and Matt Stone for wanting to shake things up a bit by giving the focus to different characters, but they should’ve learned from the previous Goth Kids episode that they can’t support a sub-plot, let alone an entire episode, on their own. Overall, as much as I despise the Goth Kids, the episode really isn’t annoying as much as it’s boring; which is something I can’t say for most other South Park episodes. With the exception of the comment made by Mrs. Beagle, all of the jokes fall flat and are the same ones we’ve heard from the previous Goth Kids episodes and just completely devoid of the originality that South Park, even at its worst, manages to offer.

* Tropers/ {{Mhj0808}}: I'm not loving how Stan and Kyle have been acting in the first two episodes of Season 20. You know, how they're joining everybody else in treating the social media stuff as SeriousBusiness. Sure, the boys treating mundane things as serious business is a South Park staple, but... maybe it's just me, but the inherent and un-ironic pettiness of social media is normally the type of thing they'd rip apart in the past rather than take seriously. The whole thing feels like a minor form of CharacterDerailment for both of them. Compare Stan's attitude toward Facebook from the 2009 episode "You Have 0 Friends" to how he acts in 2016's "Skank Hunt" and you'll see what I mean.
