In the season opener, an even stronger woman causes big problems for PC Principal. Cartman, Stan, and the rest of the boys meet their match when some of the girls join their board gamers club.
AV Club gave "Board Girls" a "C-" rating saying: "If Heather is going to stick around for the rest of the season, it will be cringy at best. I’m honestly not holding my breath when it comes to there being any justifiable payoff for the introduction of this character. This episode left me wanting to go back to Tegridy Farm—at least there it seemed like the writers were within their range."
IGN gave "Board Girls" a "7.4" rating saying: ""Board Girls" isn't the strongest installment of South Park's 23rd season, but it's a far more enjoyable episode than expected given how much it hinges on the return of the PC Babies. This one-note joke doesn't get better with age, but the combination of a silly pro wrestling parody and a renewed focus on characters like Stan and Cartman helps this episode succeed. It's a welcome change of pace after all that Tegridy."
