** "[[Recap/SouthParkS13E4EatPrayQueef Eat, Pray, Queef]]". Talk about a 21-minute sledgehammer of male guilt. Ironic, considering the show's stance on Aesops.
*** [[AlternateAesopInterpretation Or it could be a jab at women who use tears to get what they want.]]

* ForcedMeme: One of the reasons why the Member Berries are so disliked is that their "[[MadLibsCatchphrase Member X]]?" "[[PhraseCatcher I member]]!" exchange feels like this.



** The Member Berries, what should have been a one-episode gag, got beaten into the ground throughout Season 20. Their constant utterance of "Member X? Oh yeah, I Member!" just screamed "ForcedMeme." Their story [[AbortedArc abruptly ended]] after the 2016 presidential election, and it will likely stay that way. In fact, all they got during Season 21 was a fleeting cameo in "Doubling Down".

** The Member Berries, what should have been a one-episode gag, got beaten into the ground throughout Season 20. Their constant utterance of "Member X? Oh yeah, I Member!" just screamed "ForcedMeme." felt like an obnoxious ForcedMeme. Their primary purpose was for Trey and Matt to constantly remind the viewer that they didn't like ''Film/StarWarsTheForceAwakens.'' Their story [[AbortedArc abruptly ended]] after the 2016 presidential election, and it will likely stay that way. In fact, all they got during Season 21 was a fleeting cameo in "Doubling Down".



* TakeThatScrappy: Watching Butters [[GroinAttack punch his father in the nuts]] in "[[Recap/SouthParkS18E7GroundedVindaloop Grounded Vindaloop]]" was definitely satisfying.

** The Member Berries get one in ''Doubling Down,'' their only appearance in Season 21, where Mr. Garrison tells them to shut up.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WM9aBd7gvLA The new intro for Season 17]] takes a more 3D/clay animation style compared to the past seasons, but it's been received rather negatively compared to the previous ones that utilized clips from past episodes and such.

** Fans were ''not'' happy when Terrance and Phillip were aged up in "[=Super Hard PCness=]", especially in a series that uses ComicBookTime where the main cast are still 10 years old.

** Amazingly, U.S. presidents usually get off fairly lightly, with most jokes about them either being too lighthearted or somewhat flattering (Matt Stone has said that this is because they're "too easy"). UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump was the only exception due to his real life darkhorse victory, and they said that they wouldn't do any jokes about him in Season 21 because they would get stale too fast.

** Season 20 fell into this when its unusually complex StoryArc was abruptly altered by real world events. Parker and Stone hadn't prepared for the possibility that UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump, whom Mr. Garrison was serving as an {{Expy}} of, would be elected President of the United States over [[UsefulNotes/HillaryRodhamClinton Hillary Clinton]] (who was being used straight up), so the final four episodes had to be substantially rethought in a very short span of time -- in the case of the post-Election Day episode within ''less than 24 hours'' or risk coming off as completely irrelevant. The results were that several significant characters, in particular the Member Berries, fell OutOfFocus while most of the plot threads were not brought to satisfying conclusions -- and likely never will be with Parker and Stone announcing in February 2017 that UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump will '''not''' be a target of the show in Season 21 due to how '''difficult''' he is to parody.

** [[http://southpark.cc.com/clips/5tvxko/thats-called-a-trailer-park This scene]] from Season 21's "Moss Piglets" seemed to be setting up a DistaffCounterpart of the four boys as a group, which would have provided interesting story opportunities in light of the gender segregation that has been ongoing since Season 20. By the end of the season, however, Heidi's new characterization as a female Cartman has been dropped, and with the lack of any real female stand-ins for Cartman, this leaves the scene in question as nothing more than a simple throwback to the bus stop scenes that used to be prominent in the show.

* TaintedByThePreview: Since 2008, all of the show's episodes were able to be streamed for free on southparkstudios.com. Needless to say, fans were NOT happy when the website switched to Creator/{{Hulu}} for streaming.

** There are many parallels between Lennart Bedrager and [[VideoGame/{{Bioshock}}Frank Fontaine/Atlas]] . Both are [[CorruptCorporateExecutive conmen of American-nationality running large business empires]] who takes advantage of the ongoing chaos by painting themselves as a WellIntentionedExtremist of European decent just so they can start a war purely for [[ItsAllAboutMe selfish reasons.]] They both were initially apart of a BigBadEnsemble with their [[ArchEnemy Arch-Enemies]] being part of the [[EvilVSEvil Ensemble]] but by [[ManipulativeBastard manipulating]] a hero into helping them, they become the sole BigBad and the [[FinalBoss Final antagonistic obstacle.]]]]
