Dude ep.2 of szn 23 was actually funny asf. thanks Matt and Trey. ❤️
Hi guys. To honor the start of this most recent season, me and some friends returned to the habit of South Park Sessions (which is practically binge-watch South Park with some TEGRIDY (?)). After last episode, "Band In China", we discuss the idea of modern classics of South Park. We drew the line on Season 17 since its the season where South Park format started to change. So:
You guys believe in the existence of "Modern Classics"? if so, what episodes could be considered into that category? I want to read your thoughts on this.
I thought "Band In China" was an instant classic, and "Tweek x Craig" is definitely a modern classic. My buddies weren't 100% agreeing with me, though. They are more of the idea that time is the more fundamental factor to create a classic; how good can they keep up in time, and more chracter-driven episodes instead of focus on storyline that tend to fall too much on present topics. But I think that in recent seasons they've been venturing on more universal topics (from ads and trolls to political correctness and how hard is getting for South Park to fit in this times). Of course not every episode from season 17 accomplishes this features (lots of Trump joke will fade away), and there are lots of character-driven episode aswell (one thing doesn't rule out the other). But lemme know what you guys think.
What did everybody think of last night's episode, Band in China?
Personally, At first, I was sick of the Tegridy plot, however, this episode got funnier and funnier as it went on and changed my mind. Loved the Fingerbang and Micky Mouse references. We can't forget about Winnie The Pooh showing up and Randy absolutely destroying him. Kyle is back as well which is great. This episode had a lot happen in it, but South Park as always held nothing back and acknowledged the heavy role that Chinese censorship plays in the entertainment industry. All and all I'd rate this episode a 7/10 GOOD Episode!
Be sure to let me know what you think in the comments below and be on the lookout for our poll post tomorrow. Plus, how much do you know about the episode? We will find out with our new after episode quiz starting this Saturday!
Details of the second episode of Season 23 has been released! https://southpark.fandom.com/wiki/User_blog:HighJewElfKing/Episode_2302_Band_in_China "Randy lands himself in big trouble on a visit to China. Meanwhile, Stan starts a band to work out his frustration over having to move away from South Park." plus a promo https://youtu.be/KXCAjyqJutA
Seems like a boys episode without Kyle and Cartman. Do you think we'll find out if they escaped in this episode? Or find out how?
How big will Stan's band get? And what sort of band will it be? Will there be some drama between the boys? And what will they be called? Stan looks awesome as the lead of a band so I can't wait!
Back to Randy, what's going to happen in China? Is this similar to whatever Trump did this month? Will Tuong be back?
Final note: the promo title: "Drum up a little business". With a plot about the boys making a band, I can't help but wonder if the pun was intentional.
What do you think will happen? Leave your answers in the comments!
