* Tropers/{{Clown-Face}}: I'm withdrawing my suggestion of "[[Recap/SouthParkS20E7OhJeez Oh Jeez]]" in favor of "[[Recap/SouthParkS21E9SuperHardPCness Super Hard PCness]]", which pissed me off far more than anything in Season 20. In short, the episode relies on everyone either grabbing the IdiotBall or the JerkassBall, and has no voice of reason to counteract all the stupidity due to turning the show's primary OnlySaneMan, Kyle, into a caricature of Movie!Sheila. One of the biggest flaws with this episode is that it's focused on Kyle turning into [[JewishMother his mother]], but Kyle didn't start acting like his mother until [[SelfFulfillingProphecy everyone started accusing him of acting like his mother]]. Which leads to the other big problem in the episode: everyone is turned into a {{jerkass}} for the sake of pushing Kyle off the deep end. All the kids go along with Cartman and Heidi's bullying of Kyle, when an episode ago they couldn't stand the pair's cruel treatment of everyone. I could buy maybe some of them laughing at Kyle, but Stan and Wendy? And when Kyle goes on his fanatical crusade to censor Terrance and Philip, no one seems to try to talk to him until he leads an embargo on the T&P show. Kyle starting a movement against Canada was on the news, so the rest of the town had to have been aware of it; am I to believe that during the time he formed the group and then led the embargo, no one, not even his family, felt it necessary to take him aside and explain what he was doing was wrong? And even when the others do start taking it seriously and try to talk him down, they do so by, once again, comparing him to his mother, when they should know that's only going to make things worse. And finally, it ruins the character of Kyle by having him turn on his ideals and "play the victim", despite him fighting against that very concept two episodes ago. Kyle's role in this episode could've so easily been filled by someone else to have made his personality shift less jarring, namely Heidi, who'd been set up as a self-pitying villain since the previous episode. It just reeks of a poor attempt to CallBack to the movie, and in doing so wrecks the personalities of its core characters.

* Tropers/AlexIsOutHere: I'm retracting my rant about "Dead Kids" in favor of how Season 23 so far. Randy Marsh has now become a selfish, murderous, psychopathic business tycoon who only thunks about his weed business more than anything else. He has bombed homegrown weed growers in "Mexican Joker", and he has now murdered Winnie-the-Pooh and (presumably) Piglet in "Band in China". I am so fucking done with this show and Trey and Matt's clear "not-giving-a-fuck-about-the-show" attitude that they've been displaying lately (mainly focusing on their CreatorsPet) that I am actively quitting the show. Thanks a lot, Trey and Matt, you've managed to let me go this far to lose yourself a fan.

* Tropers/AlexIsOutHere: I'm retracting my rant about "Dead Kids" in favor of "Mexican Joker". Cartman has Kyle and his family taken to a immigration camp just because he witnessed ICE doing the same to Mexican immigrants. Gotten tired of the same old Cartman vs. Kyle shit that needs to just die already? Good, because I'm betting you're entirely sick of Randy Marsh subplots. Ohhh, yes, here's a real moment worthy of a [=DMoS=]: enraged at his weed business drying up because of people growing their own weed, he comes up with a suggestion--''blow up homegrown weed growers''. I am not fucking joking here. Because this is yet another season arc, I'm hoping this motherfucker gets imprisoned soon. Randy's right: fuck ''South Park''. I haven't gotten this pissed off since "Dead Kids", and as a result, I am 100% done with this ever-increasing shit-storm of a show that just doesn't want to stop being an ever-increasing shit-storm of a show. I've had enough of characters getting derailed every season since the 20th season. First, Gerald Broflovski; then, Heidi Turner; then, Mr. Hankey (to the point of getting PutOnABus); and now Randy Marsh.

* Tropers/AlexIsOutHere: The season 22 premiere "[[Recap/SouthParkS22E01DeadKids Dead Kids]]" is probably the worst season premiere of the show since Season 15ís. The episode revolves around the numerous school shootings and people's apathy towards them. The problem with this is that the shootings happen ''three times''--all in the same school: South Park Elementary. The first of those shootings happened in the very first scene, and if the rest of the episode focused on the apathy of it, it would've been fine. But no, Trey and Matt just ''had'' to veer into cringeworthy territory by having them happen [[RuleOfThree thrice]] (four if you count the middle school shooting). I knew that they'd find a way to fuck up like this, and as a result, it feels like I have no desire to continue watching the rest of the season. #cancelsouthpark indeed, because now I am quickly starting to give up on the show. Oh, and the Randy/Sharon subplot was fucking atrocious (because 1) what a way to be horribly misogynistic towards Sharon by having her be PMSing and people's reactions towards them, and 2) when will Randy stop hogging the spotlight and stop being such a fucking dumbass?), with the Cartman/Token subplot involving ''Film/BlackPanther2018'' being equally infuriating, because when will Cartman ever stop being racist, especially towards Token? And when will Token just beat his ass again, like he did in "Christian Rock Hard"?

In short, the episode relies on everyone either grabbing the IdiotBall or the JerkassBall, and has no voice of reason to counteract all the stupidity due to turning the show's primary OnlySaneMan, Kyle, into a caricature of Movie!Sheila. One of the biggest flaws with this episode is that it's focused on Kyle turning into his mother, but Kyle didn't start acting like his mother until [[SelfFulfillingProphecy everyone started accusing him of acting like his mother]]. Which leads to the other big problem in the episode: everyone is turned into a {{jerkass}} for the sake of pushing Kyle off the deep end.

I could buy maybe some of them laughing at Kyle, but Stan and Wendy? And when Kyle goes on his fanatical crusade to censor Terrance and Philip, no one seems to try to talk to him until he leads an embargo on the T&P show. Kyle starting a movement against Canada was on the news, so the rest of the town had to have been aware of it; am I to believe that during the time he formed the group and then led the embargo, no one, not even his family, felt it necessary to take him aside and explain what he was doing was wrong? And even when the others do start taking it seriously and try to talk him down, they do so by, once again, comparing him to his mother, when they should know that's only going to make things worse. And finally, it ruins the character of Kyle by having him turn on his ideals and "play the victim", despite him fighting against that very concept two episodes ago. Kyle's role in this episode could've so easily been filled by someone else to have made his personality shift less jarring, namely Heidi, who'd been set up as a self-pitying villain since the previous episode. It just reeks of a poor attempt to CallBack to the movie, and in doing so wrecks the personalities of its core characters.

* Tropers/raidpirate823: "[[Recap/SouthParkS16E6IShouldNeverHaveGoneZiplining I Should Never Have Gone Ziplining]]" was the cherry on top of a horrible season 16A. The cut-away scenes to the boys interviews (which is another dethroning moment, seeing they appear to do this at least once a season now) and just do random screaming at random points so not only does that just scream "lazy writing" but it was so boring to watch. There's also the fact that this episode changes subject every two minutes. It starts with ziplining, then goes to complaining about horse back riding, then later to boat riding. If a quarter of the episode is nothing but exposition, you know it's bad. There's also that badly acted, mind-vomiting live action scene. If you were tired of the exposition by the end, guess what? That's exactly how the episode ends. Not to mention reusing an unfunny joke that was stupid in the previous episode was bad enough. The worst part about this whole episode? If you read the plot to the episode before seeing this episode about the boys getting lost would make you think of "[[Recap/SouthParkS10E6ManBearPig ManBearPig]]" level epicness, only for it to go all kinds of wrong.

Kyle starting a movement against Canada was on the news, so the rest of the town had to have been aware of it; am I to believe that during the time he formed the group and then led the embargo, no one, not even his family, felt it necessary to take him aside and explain what he was doing was wrong? And even when the others do start taking it seriously and try to talk him down, they do so by, once again, comparing him to his mother, when they should know that that's only going to make things worse. And finally, it ruins the character of Kyle by having him turn on his ideals and "play the victim", despite him fighting against that very concept two episodes ago. Kyle's role in this episode could've so easily been filled by someone else to have made his personality shift less jarring, namely Heidi, who'd been set up as a self-pitying villain since the previous episode. It just reeks of a lazy attempt to CallBack to the movie, and in doing so wrecks the personalities of its core characters.

In short, the episode relies on everyone either grabbing the IdiotBall or the JerkassBall, and has no voice of reason to counteract all the stupidity due to turning the show's primary OnlySaneMan, Kyle, into a caricature of Movie!Sheila. One of the biggest flaws with this episode is that it's focused on Kyle turning into his mother, but Kyle didn't start acting like his mother until [[SelfFulfillingProphecy everyone started accusing him of acting like his mother]]. Which leads to the other big problem in the episode: everyone is turned into a {{jerkass}} for the sake of pushing Kyle off the deep end. All the kids go along with Cartman and Heidi's bullying of Kyle, when an episode ago they couldn't stand the pair's cruel treatment of everyone.

* Tropers/ScojobiCentral: While I donít normally get so worked up over cartoons and while Iím not pissed off about the fact that Chef was killed off in [[Recap/SouthParkS10E1TheReturnOfChef "The Return Of Chef"]], it's just that they handled it in the most [[NightmareFuel terrifying]] and [[NauseaFuel gruesome]] [[CruelAndUnusualDeath way they could think of.]] I know South Park is an adult show, but even South Park doesnít usually show a death that gruesome for too long. I guess this was just their way of saying goodbye to Isaac Hayes [[TearJerker (Rest in peace by the way).]] I feel that a better way to kill him off is to make a HeroicSacrifice or to simply get killed from a gunshot wound, but they just went UpToEleven with this one. I usually avoid this episode because of this moment.
