I haven't seen a single ep since maybe the movie. Actually, don't think I've really seen an ep since the first season.

Now I have to watch this one.

Fuck china

I saw that episode Sunday and afterwards thought about how Viacom might suffer for something Comedy Central aired. Whenever Mickey shows up you know it's going to get dark.
Viacom were certainly willing to have Paramount lick boot for China with those jacket flag changes in Top Gun: Maverick.
So Winnie the Pooh was in the episode? lol
Indeed.
Randy murders him to appease the Chinese government so that he can sell weed in China.

It was a great episode but no one seems to be talking about the biggest shocker of all---

The return of Fingerbang

I'm surprised they wiped South Park out of existence rather than just banning the episode.

Well, not that surprised but still. Fuck censorship.

It was one of their best and almost the hardest they’ve ever gone in on someone. They did not flinch in calling out the Disney Empire for a second.

I hope people will finally shut the fuck up about South Park “both sides-ing” shit based on a couple of episodes from a decade and a half ago when the cultural and political landscapes were completely different.

Good, the episode was great.
I wonder if the people that call it a "alt-right show" are also completely fine with the China ballwashers at Disney and everywhere else.
i'm still surprised that absolutely no one seems to care that an obviously tibetan character was played by tilda swinton in dr. strange. surely not related to china in any way.

It was a good episode, not surprised by China's reaction, they can't handle any criticism even if it's such a show. They've been throwing around their weight and need to be smacked down.

'Even PC Babies don't care about China and PC babies cry about everything!'
Haha that line was pretty great!

it would be nice, if those types could see the bigger picture and realize SP is way more skewed towards the right side of history regardless of a couple ancient fumbles.

Not only can Disney do absolutely nothing wrong in the eyes of most, but it doubles up with having the MCU in its corner. The Disney brand loyalty is off the charts, I can't think of any company that's even close.

Speaking of banned episodes, when the fuck is Comedy Central going to come to their senses and unban Super Best Friends, 200, and 201 in America? Like come the fuck on.

Oh its been brought up but it gets steamrolled under all the other conversations surrounding the MCU, let alone Dr. Strange. That and most people don't even realize the change.

Shit there are several episodes of The Boondocks that still aren't allowed to be streamed anywhere like the the notorious Tyler Perry episode.

I always find it funny how China is so thin skinned when something offends them. Makes them look even dumber

So what's it like wasting your moral energy on a 20 year old episode of a cartoon when there are actual massive injustices going on atm?
Just curious what that's like. Sounds pretty privileged.
I mean, are there specific episodes You can point to they’ve done in the last decade or more that are “both-sidesing” to you? Or am I getting the usual Era Double-Down special?
I just hate South Park and I'll never miss the chance to make it clear. That's all.

Dude, if this forum has taught me anything, it's that moral energy has an unending supply, especially when it's about meaningless finger waving.

Matt and trey arent perfect but they are at their best when it comes to calling shit out. The scientology episode is one of my all time faves. Only watch one or two episodes a year but this one was pretty great.

It's everywhere, buy the DVDs
I stopped buying the DVDs/Blu-rays around 14. I mean unbanned from television/streaming, obviously.

Well said. And at the very least they've tried to be better about social issues in recent history.

Just watched it. Haven't kept up with South Park in a long while, but damn that was good. Completely on point with this episode.

You enter threads about shows you hate/don’t watch?

It’s fine if you have reasons to hate it, as long as them both-sidesing issues aren’t one of them, since it’s completely false. Even in the preview thread for this episode, there were people convinced they were going to both sides things despite a decade plus of content doing the opposite.

All that told me is that there are a lot of people that talk out of their ass on a show they don’t/haven’t watched in ten years. You can hate the show for the humor, animation, whatever, but there’s no need to run around spreading false info claiming a show does something they very much don’t.

Haven't watched South Park in forever-but just wanted to stop by to say Fuck China. It's gross that studios won't even make certain movies or put certain things in movies because they're worried about big bad China.

Actually I just reapplied something-don't China usually block movies about Time Travel? But they allowed Avengers Endgame?

A decade and a half ago? If anything, the libertarian messaging felt less overt in the beginning compared to some of the stuff in season 19. I haven't watched anything past that season, though.

Let me guess, they're worried about people fantasizing using time travel to undo China's glorious history? What a dumb thing lol

If time travel became real you bet your ass the Chinese government would try to use it to their benefit.

From my knowledge they ban movies with LGBT characters, time travel and ghosts. I would love to have a movie about gay time travelers that fight ghosts.

The best part is that the first ep of the season was highly critical of ICE and the family separation policy at the American border, and it made literally no waves in the American political landscape because it's obviously protected speech, but South Park makes similar policy criticisms of China and are promptly banned there.

The minute Winnie the Pooh was involved it was going to be banned in China.
