The virtual reality episode "Grounded Vindaloop" is one of my absolute favorites. Then there's the Black Friday/Game of Thrones trilogy which was awesome. And as the pixelated penguin pointed out, I loved the introduction of the member berries, the scene where they sing Toto's "Africa" one of my favorite individual moments.

Ok, you made me look it up.  I had forgotten it completely:

Oh, good call, that one was great.  Didn't recognize it skimming titles.  Thought the Black Friday trilogy was very underwhelming, and while I enjoyed the concept of the member berries there was no one episode they were in that was that good.  I mean, Garrison as Trump is also a great concept (comedically), but I'd be fine if that never existed either. 

Like you said though, that woulda been the perfect moment to sign off.  I liked how in the latest episode the boys said something like "man everything's getting canceled but we can't even do that.  Are we supposed to just keep making asses out of ourselves?"  And yep, "You're Getting Older" was clearly the point where Trey said I'm just a cynical asshole now and don't give a shit.  

Agree about the member berries and really no one episode where they were good. I just love them in moments they recurred in that season. I loved their concept, that nostalgia is a strong emotion, almost addictive, and it's nice to reminisce about the past and get sentimental about happy memories but you can't go Glenn Beck and think just because that Mean Joe Green Coke commercial (member?) happened during a time when your own life was warm and fuzzy it means the past as a whole is better and something we should want to return to because it certainly doesn't mean that and there's some really messed up shit that went on in the past. 

There was such a great out with Garrison as Trump, I can't believe Parker and Stone missed it. 

It is discovered that the Mr. Hat personality is still residing within Mr. Garrison. You know, the personality that was part of the KKK? The Mr. Hat puppet returns only instead of a hat he's now got a big comb over and his name is Mr. Hair. Garrison purges the personality from him once and for all and gets to go back to South Park and resume his life there like Parker and Stone wanted him to before the election. Once in a while when there's an episode that needs a scene to show the President, they cut to the White House and show Mr. Hair saying whatever outrageous thing he's saying that day, only now instead of being a puppet on Mr. Garrison's hand, he's always shown on Putin's hand.

...So what's up Trey's ass about China?  Didn't really get that episode.  Liked the first one this season though.

What do you mean? China is rapidly growing more authoritarian and at the same time more influential in the 'free world', especially entertainment, and everybody is kissing their asses in hopes that they would be allowed to make some money on a Chinese market. Fuck China, and fuck anyone who's bending over to them.

It warms my heart that there are still (sadly, very few) people in entertainment industry who are willing to stand up to them.

Death metal part was hilarious, especially after writing a song on a acoustic guitar. :lol:

Just seemed a bit out of nowhere to me.  Obviously China is an enduring geopolitical issue, but they've dealt with that probrem many times before.  I'm not aware of anything particularly recent that China has done, but maybe I'm wrong?  That's what I'm asking.

Hong Kong Protests maybe? Only thing that comes to mind that concerns China.

 

Just starting episode two now. 

Edit: Randy Marsh murdered Winnie the Pooh with a garrote. And Piglet? Piglet just watched.

Got caught up just now. Really enjoyed South Park being back. Two solid episodes, though far from their greatest level. Still cool that the remain relevant though.

Darryn Morey from Houston Rockets tweeted something in support of HK protesters and, of course, a shitstorm began. China immediately began economic punishment, and NBA is jumping through hoops to apologize and appease them.

Here is a clip showing a reporter ask 2 stars a question at a press conference about the incident and is immediately shut down. 

This is CCP dictatorship pouring into the US.
