Did the Pandemic Special Fix South Park?

The Roundtable

22 күн мурун

South Park made a strong return with the first hour long special installment in the series, The Pandemic Special. Tackling all the insanity of coronavirus, social distancing, the impact of quarantine and other insane 2020 topics, this felt like a return to form for Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny. While Randy and Tegridy Farms felt like a joke that lost its charm a while ago, they even managed to give him an entertaining subplot with Disney, Mickey Mouse, and a strange COVID-19 cure! Let's discuss not just this special, but why this format works for the future of the series!

The quality of SP declined when they switched to the 10 episode format in 2013. I think it is a scenario where they are second guessing themselves since less air time per season, and tend to not improve gags because of over thinking.

Why is it that since about season 3 or 4 of South Park there's been this hipsterish group that perpetually goes on about the good old days? Most of the complaints I've seen about South Park are Trumpists who think it's suddenly not funny that South Park is taking the piss out of them. They're the loudest group of Kyle's Moms/Karens on the Internet today.

Two things confused me about the special 1: Butters dad is calling out people at the start who are not wearing masks calling them chin diapers but later in the episode hes wearing it that way and refuses to cover his nose? 2: Kyles dad gets a Randy moustache and says normally I cant grow one yet hes always had a moustache! does anyone have any ideas about this?

I disagree, I think the serialization can lead to larger comedic payoffs. Meanwhile each episode still retains a b-plot episodic short story.

Im so glad you pointed out the focus on Randy. He was and still is my favourite character but he works best when his idiocy is contrasted with normal adult life. When the entire show focusses on him and its insanity all the time it loses its charm.

I just wanted to start off by saying, I really enjoyed the pandemic special South Park episode. It was a lot of fun to watch and also kinda depressing at times, but the whole part where Stan makes a speech and says, ‘I just want my life back.’ It was like super deep. It gave me an idea, I don’t know if Matt & Trey are gonna make a new episode for the 24th season coming up here in these next few weeks, but if they do, for one of the episodes this season, I want them to make it about Stan, dealing with all of this chaos, how he has been at Tegridy Farms for two years now, and he’s been having nightmares where he flash backs to all the episodes from the tegridy farms episode that aired on October 17th 2018 to the newest Pandemic Special Episode about how life will never come back to normal. I’m not too good on the jokes and gags, so that’s something they have to come up with. So basically one night, during the quarantine, Stan has a moment where he is able to take all the leashes off and do whatever the fuck he wants. During that night he sneaks out to the farm, and he gets a few jars of Tegridy Weed and combines them together and adds a substance that contains a bit of the coronavirus from the pangolin animal that Randy f’’ked and created the pandemic (Of course Stan doesn’t know it). So Stan makes Randy a cup of coffee or a meal in the morning, then he pours the poisoning into his meal or his coffe. Then Randy does some sort of hilarious seizure where he grows a mustache, and dies. Stan, Sharron, & Shelly at first to pale and quit, then Stan makes a joke at this point and they all feel joy in their hearts that they don’t have to deal with Randy’s bullshit farm anymore and they move back home. That’s all I got so far, make sure you make it about: Stan, Kyle, Cartman , & Kenny. I don’t really know if you guys will read this comment, but if you see this, can you please send it to Matt Stone & Trey Parker, or make a fan made - episode of it, i would feel so happy, if I had a million dollars I would give it to you. Please 😎🔥✌️

Can't wait to look down and see all the toxic South Park fans shitting on people who think their precious show hasn't at all digressed over the years. Having a really good hour long special isn't going to change things. Get over it, fanboys. South Park has been on a decline since Season 16. *Rips off shirt* FIGHT ME!!!!!!!

I think the cops teaching school was a metaphor for schools being like a prison now. Our district made kids return, the teachers are pre recording lessons and literal spending their time as mask police. Kids sit there for 8 hours a day doing work on their own. No socializing and even lunch is brought to them to eat in the class.

nothing was ever wrong with south park. people like to complain for no reason. Where was the talk in that god awful season 19 about advertisements and the continuity, that is arguably one of the worst seasons of south park barely got mentioned, and its a newer one too. The last few seasons are definitely an improvement.
XZ III 5 күн мурун
um.. you're dumb people are still saying everything after season 19 sucked ass.I'm one of them, & this pandemic special sucked because it was just as weak as everything south park has been releasing lately. What I don't get is how people can't see that, the jokes are bland and I've been told that viewers are sensitive nowadays, but the jokes in the show are just stale bread now. Like what is one memorable funny thing from the past 5 or 6 seasons?

Honestly, I didn’t like the Special. I understand theyre older and they aren’t connected to the kids anymore, but Kyle and Stan are supposed to be them in the show. I don’t understand why they had to spend so much time on Randy now. I liked the older seasons better, and not the newer ones. I liked the episodes with Randy like Guitar Queero and the one with the online video game but it started to get boring when the characters I LOVED started getting less screen time. Don’t get me wrong, I love Randy, but I feel like the kids could’ve gotten more screen time then just a “build-a-bear” clip and the school. I was excepting Cartman or Kyle to start COVID. Having both of them being the most troublesome kids in the group of four. Stan and Kyle are the soul characters of the show but Cartman carries the comedy of it. I found this hour special boring. They have overrated Randy so much in this newer season and newer version of South Park. I just wish the kids were back in the screen because they are the main group. I would like to see episodes of each kid and how their family is dealing with this. Maybe Mr. Slave will be Biden? I hope they do.. it would be so good!

One thing I have to say is that in the last couple seasons it lost its shock factor like the episode where they had Indiana Jones raped, and what made the special really good was the shock value of stuff like the screwing a bat and jerking off on to weed, that’s what made it a little better than usual
