    After last season I thought the creators maybe wanted to end it but I guess it’s still going.

    Also looks like they’re bringing back...Crank Yankers?!

    I don’t know, anyone young enough to find it funny wasn’t alive when it first came on. It’s a show that is totally on board the “Don’t try to be funny, try to make people like it by sole virtue of PC people hating it” train.

    I am glad South Park will be back. Never watched Crank Yankers back in the day. Jason

    I never watched Crank Yankers either but it came on after South Park so I saw all the ads for it constantly.

    I love South Park so I'm glad to see it still going. Unlike Simpsons it's managed to stay fresh and update itself as it went along. Just after the whole #CancelSouthPark thing last season I thought it was done.

    Didn't they announce it was renewed for three more seasons?

    I hadn’t heard about the extension. Just after the #CancelSouthPark thing, the last scene with every character at the bike parade felt a lot like a final bow.

    My strongest memory of Crank Yankers is they had a character “Special Ed”. You can guess by the name what he stereotyped. (Complete with helmet).

    I haven't watched South Park in years, but...are the kids getting any older? Shouldn't they be in high school by now?

    Crank Yankers? Ugh... maybe they'll get it right this time around. Or not...

    Yeah the show is in it's 20-thing season.

    It will never be canceled until one of the creators dies. They make the show in like 3 days and it has to cost next to nothing.

    And Alexander should still be 8 1/2 when he appears in Sons & Daughters. Different shows have their own particular age warps.

    Looking like another serialized season. Taking on ICE.

    Not being subtle about the idea that people are uncomfortable comparing them to concentration camps and it would look very different if it were Jews instead of Hispanics.

    The weirdest thing for me is when Kyle says "comic book movie" and then they start talking about the Joker.

    DC sucks.

    So...I’m going to guess South Park is now banned in China under threat of death?

    I love the new updated Tegridy Farms opening. It's easy for my simple mind to remember.

    I think I'm onboard with the story this year. I honestly felt they wanted the show cancelled last year, and it seemed a pretty good way to go out if that was it. Oh well. ;)

    I loved Mickey questioning if he owned Randy Marsh. Not yet!

    Randy killing poor Winnie the Pooh was hilariously dark.

    I was wondering if the Red Dwarf people felt regret that they had to kill Winnie the Pooh off camera, becuase the world wasn't ready for that level of childhood murdering back in the 90s.

    Winnie mauled Christopher Robin on Robot Chicken a few days ago. :D

    I love that they're standing up to the Chinese censors trying to control American art.

    It makes me wish there was a way to find out what entertainment companies are censoring content to placate the Chinese and boycott them.

    Be like the manatees! If any idea ball gets taken out, refuse to watch!

    If Dwayne Johnson were pitched a movie about a Tibetan monk who stands up against a corrupt government, but that paid a ton of money, I wonder if he’d have a stroke.

    It was weird, I was shocked (especially at Piglet's reaction) and also laughing my ass off at the same time :lol:
