South Park returned on Comedy Central for their 20th anniversary season. South Park’s lightning quick production schedule is one of the show’s greatest assets. It allows Trey Parker and Matt Stone to lampoon current events at a rate that simply isn’t possible on any other animated sitcom. This episode cast a very wide net, covering everything from the Colin Kaepernick National Anthem controversy to online trolls to Hollywood’s reboot obsession to the Black Lives Matter movement to, naturally, the current US Presidential Election. It’s great to have South Park back on the air.
Looks like this season will be all about the elections and I hope South Park can be funnier and more topical than the real election. I give this episode two stars and I hope it gets better as the season goes on.
