Has South Park Gotten Worse Over the Years?Has South Park Gotten Worse Over the Years? by NickelParkLavigne
It’s no secret to anybody who casually knows about South Park that it has been a controversial series since the day it first premiered. Pretty much every episode features a diverse set of opinions. There is a more prominent opinion being featured anytime a new season is running. A number of current fans and former fans have been stating complaints over the most recent season being terrible, stating that the show is suffering through “seasonal rot”. Seasonal rot is a term to describe a series getting progressively worse over time.
I’ve only given a real review for one of the 240+ episodes in the show, and I still plan to get to those within time, but I’ve decided to briefly go over all of the seasons here in addition to giving a comparison to a couple of other shows that have suffered seasonal rot and breaking down some of the complaints from those who consider the show has “jumped the shark”.
Let’s take a look at how South Park has origin

Watch the episode here.
So here are how these reviews are going to be done. I’ll start off by giving a general description of the plotline and then give my final thoughts in addition to a ten star-rated system. So here we go.
We start this episode off with our heroes waiting at the bus stop for school. Kyle’s (boy in green Ushanka) little brother Ike wants to go with them. He then uses a trick called “Kick the Baby” to get him to leave. Cartman (fat boy in red coat) brings up a dream of aliens kidnapping him. The others, however say that it wasn’t a dream and the aliens (Visitors) are real.
Chef, the school cafeteria chef (obviously), comes up

Top 12 Favorite Plot TypesA while ago I wrote a list of my top 11 most hated cliches. I tried to come up with an alternative. My top 11 favorite cliches, but I couldn't think of enough so I decided to do something different but similar. Have you ever had one of those plot types that you could manage to enjoy no matter how cliche and sterile they are? Those plots that have a large chance at being your guilty pleasures at worst? So, if you do know any episodes (or hell movies) that use these plots, I'd love to hear them; they don't even need to be animated. Although, each of these can and have been done badly before.MrEnter
Number 12: Genie Plot
One that doesn't have the third wish be "I wish I'd never met you" (with a few exceptions, like one of the Fairly OddParents TV movies, the one with Norm), which is odd because this doesn't really apply to shows like Fairly Odd Parents where reality is bended at will. The basic gist of this plot is that a normal character suddenly gets the ability to get whatever they wan
South ParkYou know, I've talked about The Simpsons and Family Guy recently, but I never came across talking about this show yet. This is interesting since, I recently watched the episode "Cartoon Wars", which is one of my favorite episodes. It jabs on Family Guy quite accurately, and the plot was very interesting. Also, Cartman makes a pretty good point: Despite the show also having off-color humor at times, South Park is not entirely like Family Guy. And to be honest, I'm a big fan, and I enjoy South Park quite more. But the question is, why?ScoBionicle99
There are a lot of reasons. To put it short, I'm a fan of satire, and what South Park tends to pull off in episodes are pretty humorous in each episode. Aside from being topical, I also enjoy the random adventures that the main 4 children have in several episodes. Also, the writing can be clever. What can turn people away from South Park, is how offensive an
Notebook Page DisclaimerThe reason I'm not doing many notepages on SpongeBob episodes is for the following reasons:oopadoopabooga
1. Many of the show's worst episodes have already been covered ad nauseam by so many other people that I probably wouldn't be adding anything new here. I only did what I consider to be two of the worst episodes from the show and not just on that level, one of them had some of the worst writing I've ever seen from a cartoon so it was bad enough to warrant a notebook page style review from me to express my distaste for it. "Smoothe Jazz at Bikini Bottom" MIGHT be getting a notebook page though but I wanted to summarize my thoughts on that episode and really express how much I thought there was so much wasted potential in that episode in the way they executed it so I think I can try to make that fresh too. Two other candidates would probably be "Boating Buddies" which I'd be criticizing from a different angle in terms of what really makes me upset about that episode and maybe "To Love a Patty" if y
