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

Asperger's SyndromeA lot of people have been asking me about Asperger's syndrome and some of my experiences with it and some of the conditions. This is largely because, on the internet at least, I seem to be good at hiding it. Most people I meet here don't know that I have Asperger's syndrome unless I directly tell them. I do have it, but what exactly does it mean? First off all, please don't use this as a way to diagnose yourself. If you think that you have Asperger's syndrome, depression, or any other mental condition please see a licensed psychiatrist. You cannot self-diagnose mental conditions. (Hmmm... I kind of have that symptom sometimes, I MUST have this disorder!) Asperger's syndrome is known as a high-functioning autism, and as such many of the symptoms are similar, and yet, in some ways it's very different.
The most notable symptoms of Asperger's syndrome come from issues with social interaction. Most people seem to notice this because there are a lot of people claiming to be an asshole on the
Top 10 Worst/Best Ed, Edd n Eddy episodesNostalgia Critic recently made a video of the top 11 worst Avatar episodes and the top 11 best Avatar episodes. So I decided to make my own countdown of the top worst and best episodes of a show I like. With SpongeBob already soaked in so many of these, I decided to go with... Ed, Edd n Eddy(excluding specials). Not much people have done that with this show yet.
I consider Ed, Edd n Eddy a good show with a lot of hilarity. It has plenty of good moments, but like many good shows, also has quite a few duds. And some big duds at that. Which makes it a perfect candidate for a top worst/best list. So without further delay, I'm starting off with my worst Ed, Edd n Eddy episodes.
Top 10 WORST episodes
10) Stiff Upper Ed - In this episode, the Eds want nothing more than to be accepted into Sarah and Jimmy's fancy club. Everybody else is allowed in, even Kev
The Meaning of LifeMost people, if they haven't had it already, are looking for that one moment that defines their life. They've finally come to the culmination of all of their interests and experiences and know with absolute certainty that "this is what I want to do with the rest of my life." Some cynical people think that that moment won't ever come. I know that it comes though. For me, it's come about 12 times now.
I've talked about my Asperger's Syndrome before (now known as a part of Autism Spectrum Disorder), and mostly I'm fine with it. There are symptoms I've overcome, like my social anxiety. There are symptoms that I manage to deal with, like increased sensitivity to touch and taste. And then there's this one: the intense interest. This symptom has been the hardest to describe to people, for some reason or another. So... I'll try my best.
In laymen's terms, it's an intense interest in a very narrow subject. Like, upon discovering you like to do this, you feel like you could do this and this alon
Just Repeat to Yourself it's Just a Show *UPDATE*Sometimes I think people take cartoons too seriously.
Like I can understand it sometimes if it’s meant to be taken seriously like a really dramatic dark cartoon show (Batman, Young Justice, G.I. Joe, ect.). But if it’s something that’s supposed to be fun and comedic like say Spongebob, MLP:FIM, or The Simpsons and people start getting obsessed or start ranting about say getting part of a moral wrong or some little error in the episode, I can’t help but go “Hey it can’t get everything right, can’t we just sit back and be entertained.”
I’m all for critique, but if you start complaining about a Spongebob episode using medical terms incorrectly (which I’ve actually seen happen) then I think you need to loosen up a bit.
Just to be clear I don't mean we should just ignore whenever a cartoon episode is bad. If you think that a
Speaking Out Against Autism SpeaksAutism Speaks is a non-profit charity organization supposedly dedicated to helping autistic people. As someone on the autism spectrum, you'd think I support Autism Speaks, right? Wrong. Autism Speaks does not support those who are autistic. What they do is act like autism is a disease that needs to be cured, which is not the case. What it does is that it affects the brain's development. Plus, you cannot cure autism, that's like trying to divide by zero, unless you can change the way the brain works. Also, you cannot catch it. What's more is that they completely ignore the fact that there are multiple spectrum, not just severe autism. They also pretend that it can give them abilities that "normal" neurological don't have. I don't think I could visualize as well as I can without my Aspergers. It has caused me problems, yes, but that doesn't mean that I won't be able to be successful, plus there are extremely successful people that are on the autism spectrum, such as the creator of Pokemo
My thoughts on Autism SpeaksSomeone on tumblr the other day asked me what I thought of the organization Autism Speaks. Being someone on the autism spectrum they wanted to know if I had special insight to the matter. For those who don't know, I have Asperger's Syndrome (which is apparently classified as Autism Spectrum Disorder. It doesn't really matter, a change of the name doesn't change the condition all that much). If you want to specifically know what that's like, you can read what I wrote here: http://mrenter.deviantart.com/journal/Asperger-s-Syndrome-509576015
What I'm going to say about certain topics may get into the area of controversy (not about the organization. Most people in the autistic community, from my experience, do not like autism speaks) so you'll have to bear with me. But no I don't like this organization and I don't support what they do. They harm the lives of autistic people much more than they help and we're going to be talking about quite a few of their controversies. In fact, they've don
The Little Yellow Punching BagI want to ask you all a favor: can we all stop giving a shit about modern SpongeBob?
I get it. It used to be such a good show, everyone's an asshole now, Squidward gets tortured too much, yadda, yadda, yadda. It's always the same old problems, just stated in different (or not so different) ways. But why care? It's not getting any better, and if you don't like it - this is just a thought here - don't watch it. If I ever do video reviews, I'm not sure I'll ever review SpongeBob because it is the biggest case of beating a dead horse in the whole wide world of internet reviews.
Yeah, the show is an interesting one, both in its successes and its failures. Certainly, it gives you a bit to talk about. But it takes a really skilled reviewer to come up with something new to say about either its successes or failures, and more often than not, it's the same people talking about the same failures, only bringing up the successes to say how much better they are than the failures. Yes, I partially bl
Eras of Animation - The 2000's (Part 2)First part here: http://mrenter.deviantart.com/…
(I'll fix the errors as I go along, for example I've already fixed the Final Fantasy movie being the Spirits Within and not Advent Children. This retrospective stuff takes a lot of time and effort)
2005: What the fuck happened? This is... a difficult year, but at least a lot happened. Let's start with Spongebob entering its fourth season and Family Guy returns (to its fourth season) to FOX after popular DVD sales. Both of these shows were previously cancelled, but because corporations wanted more and more money they kept them going. Also Family Guy got a spin-off in American Dad. American Dad isn't as good as Family Guy was, but it's a lot better than Family Guy currently is. Oh and speaking of Spongebob it may as well have gotten a spin-off too since Coconut Fred's Fruit Salad Island aired this year too.
Eras of Animation - The 2000's (Part 1)Since I'm going to do a list of the top 10 worst cartoons of this particular decade (2000-2009) I thought that it might be fun to do a little bit of a retrospective on the era. And maybe I'll do a little bit more on other decades. Now I said that this was one of the worst decades (not THE worst, that's generally agreed on to be the 70's), but this is a particularly bad decade. I will say that this decade had some really, really good gems. That's because the early 2000's were more a less a continuation of the 90's. When I talk about this decade I tend to refer more to the mid-2000's, which not even the early 2000's can really save. It's not even the shows that's most of the problems, it's the trends that started here, and we'll talk about them soon. So, let's take this year by year, and we'll talk about the events as they transpire. Also, to keep this simple, we're going to be largely talking about American animation history. I don't have the time to research the entire world's animatio
