South Park has been terrible recently, but their latest episode dealing with EA Sports and "student athletes" is hilarious.

I'll keep an eye out for it.

The humancentipad episode seemed pretty typical as far as south park goes, and from what I have heard it doesn't get much better.

I guess we just have to wait for the WunterSlash to come and save South Park.

No.. they haven't been terrible. When will people get off the "X show/franchise/band has been terrible lately" train ? 
 
And i haven't seen the episode yet, i'm watching it tonight. Can't wait!

@Ahmad_Metallic: Dunno, man. I'm pretty sure this isn't a case of jumping on the bandwagon. The start of last season was pretty funny, but it went downhill quickly. 
 
As for this season? I've been actively avoiding it since the fourth episode or something. It's just painfully, acutely unfunny.

Maybe it's because i'm a long time fan of Matt & Trey and find all their work extremely hilarious, but i always get the vibe of each new episode and i sense the good old humerous feel of the South Park series. at this point, with all the laughter they've provided me with over the years, i'm simply happy that the show is still around 
 
The only episode that i personally and publicly said stinks, and stinks real bad where they try too hard, was the Pinewood Derby one or whatever it was called. that there was a piece of a shit in an otherwise delecious mountain of south park pudding

I wouldn't say SP has been "terrible" because that's a pretty strong word, but it just hasn't been making me laugh as much as it'd used to.
 
 Except whenever Randy Marsh is on... I love that guy.

For a show to be funny for as long as South Park has been isn't an easy feat by any means.

Fuck  yeah. I always wondered if he should have a spin-off show, or would that get old quick? Right now I can't get enough of him and his Peter Molyneux-like balls.

Just something I though of as I was reading this.  Maybe its not that south park is less funny but maybe that you are getting older and no longer find that humor as laugh out loud funny as it once was?  Because I know that I have grown up with south park(13 years of it) and I no longer really find it to be super funny but I still find it entertaining.

This season has been pretty underwhelming except for last weeks episode with Cartman in anger management and all those great Butters moments, and the EA sports one was pretty funny as well.

Last week's episode was great and this week's was alright.
