    What old one? They've changed it about four times. I think the new one looks great.

    Are you on crack?!

    They have rejigged the original for 15 years.

    This is a completely brand new 3D intro.

    quick way to get the spstudios website working is to use Chrome and download the hola unblocker extension and switch it to US.

    The new intro looks great IMO.

    Only seen the first episode which was OK for most part but they dragged the stuff with Cartman on the phone too long.

    The last two episodes have been pretty great! World War Zimmerman especially.

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    Apparently for the first time ever South Park has missed it's six days to air deadline and has had to be postponed:

    Power outage apparently

    They re-run an old episide because of the power outage.

    This old Scott Tenorman Must Die episode highlights how shit the modern day ones really are - there are no laughs anymore, and they resorted to covering news events as a cheap way of coming up with a plotline (disguised as "biting satire")

    The old ones concentrated on the characters and the world itself. So I have started from the start again. These ones are head and shoulders above the new ones... their hearts are definitely not in it anymore.

    Watching a single older episode confirms this... there is a major contrast.

    Bitingly satirical animated show produced from scratch in just 7 days every week not quite as good as it used to be? What a shocker. And yet, I still absolutely love South Park. Sure, Scott Tenorman is better than most other episodes. I believe that's why they chose to play that one. But the show is still great and still makes me laugh regularly.

    Personally, I've always found that I laugh harder and longer at South Park if it's an episode I've seen a few times. Plus, not every episode is based on that week's current affairs, sometimes it's based on pop culture stuff that's been around a while, and sometimes it has nothing to do with anything newsy. And they've been following that pattern for a while. Stuck In The Closet, anyone?

    Yes, it's not *quite* as top-notch every week, but there's bundles of life in the old dog yet. Can't say that about Simpsons. If anything, mocking current affairs keeps South Park alive.

    I think it's great :D

    If they'd actually switched the show itself over to that look I'd have been majorly disappointed. But they didn't. In fact, I'd wager they did this purely to elicit amusing over-reactions like that... ;)

    To be fair Scott Tenorman Must Die is one of their best episodes so a lot of them seem shit in comparison. I'd agree the season average has dipped but it's still one of the only shows to get more than a wry smile out of me.

    SP for still has it, seen a few of series 17 and I thought they were pretty funny, haven't WW Zimmerman yet but it sounds like a goodun to me. Personal fav is the internet down episode with the FEMA camps and the star of the show Randy with his wanking ecto-plasm excuses, haven't seen that one in a while but thinking about it has me in stitches.

    I'm a bit wary of watching SP at the moment - I thought the last two seasons were a massive drop off in quality so I don't really want to be proven right if the new episodes aren't up to snuff.

    They're still capable of gems every now and then (1%, Insecurity, TMI) but the quality/shit ratio has finally tipped the wrong way imo. There's about 5-6 episodes in total from the last couple of seasons I've watched more than twice.

    Going to give some S17 episodes a try tonight and I'm crossing my fingers I'm proved wrong.

    Also - Bit of a cheap shot on The Simpsons when SP has hit just as low as the new episodes in the past (Million Little Fibres, Funnybot, Going Native). I'd also say SP has arguably never been as great as The Simpsons was in its' heyday, nor as consistent.

    The above sounds like a massive whine - I really do love South Park, just a little concerned :p

    It's still got it AFAIC. It's uneven, but its lows are never really lows and its highs are far higher than other seventeen-year-old TV programmes' are.

    Agreed. Totally excellent. Loved Butters beatbox :-)

    The newest goth one is not one of their best moments. No Randy or Cartman eps are always the weakest. Raised a couple of smiles and even a chuckle or two from me although that was mainly due to the black dude.

    Looking forward to next weeks Ike episode.

    Been going through the old eps, excellent stuff. Good to see chef again... Cartmen is hilarious.

    Urgh, stop rating everything. It is truly meaningless.

    Okay, guy. You better tell the mods on here to lock all the rating threads, and tell reviewers around the world that they're in a meaningless occupation.

    Can you tell us more about how much you hate recent South Park instead?

    I've not seen the Goth episode yet but a mate showed me the intro on the weekend and I was nearly crying with laughter - whoever did that Robert Smith impression deserves a raise.

    @El_MUERkO It's may be meanlingless to deluded people, but it's also actually true and undisputed.

    some random guy giving a out rating, which has no bearing - on anything, and is actually meaningless. It's like giving someone directions in outer space.

    Does it feed the ego or something?

    You heard it here folks, his opinion is "true and undisputed"!

    Hahaha, what a supercilious cunt!

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.
