South Park > South Park Review: "You're Getting Old" > Comments Page 4
A very complicated episode that could be read in a number of ways. To pick up on the analysis earlier regarding the two hicks trying to "save the britches," you'll notice that they failed in their attempt because the police came and took the britches back. I think the police are a metaphor for Comedy Central, or maybe fans in general, who have Trey and Matt beholden to a contract, or in the case of fans, for sentimental reasons. As such, I don't think this is the end, but it might be an indication that the end is coming after the next 7 episodes, or that there will be a shift in the way things are played out. I sincerely hope they don't end the show; it's one of the very few "correctives" out there to the ridiculousness of society and it is from a non-liberal viewpoint--which makes it that much more unique.
Wow. I can't tell if this is serious or if we're getting trolled. Either way, I love south park, I was blown away by this episode, and I get the feeling the next episode will be a terrence and phillip episode.
Anybody else notice the alien in the back of the bar? I have a sneaky suspicion we'll see some classic aliens in the last few episodes, seeing as we can all be a little sneaky sometimes "God damn Mongolians!" - Best episode ever
i think that even thought it was a deep and meaningful message behind the episode i think that it was removing the spirt that we have come to love about south park and it wasnt really witty or just plain stupid as southpark usually is and i think if it were to end it shouldn't end like this as its so out of style
I have never been sad about a TV show ending. NEVER
BUT DUDE....not south park. I have never been sad about a TV show...until now. I think fading away into mediocrity is better than ...breaking all our hearts.
DUDE, Don't do it.... :'(
Sell the rights to the show, maybe somebody else will make it.
...... its not the same shit over and over... i really liked T.M.I (best episode of the season), and CBAA, city sushi was alright.
You guys were on a roll in season 14. One of the BEST SEASON's ever. WTF? WTF how can you end it now? SEASON 14 breathed new life into Southpark. I loved all of the episodes.
I'm sad cz I grew up watching it. Oh well better to end it now before the quality takes a real dive.
The first time I ever felt like crying after watching an episode of southpark. I'm glad they're going to end it on good note.
The president is a duck.
That part was my favorite.
Nah I think its really ending, its trey and matts style. They have shown they don't like shows that go on for too long and end in low quality. I don't think it could of been of beem more obvious, then the music theme they incodrporated into it, when randy and sharon talked it sounded a shitload like carole king its too late. And then they had ill be watching you played by kyles dad, and the last song the one about changes. This was so depressing, I guess imma start watching crude comedy now, u know stick to the pointless stuff like family guy or aqua teen or tosh.o or wkuk. I'm eager to see how they'll end this though. So far so good.
Chef getting killed off wasn't nearly as sad as this one . . .
if this really is the end i think trey and matt are getting too cocky from their little broadway show and the mediocre attention its getting and they think their past south park now. don't get me wrong im sure they are capable of doing other great things...but letting go of their best creation ever..this early would be stupid. buuut on the other hand they could be just getting tired of comedy central and all their censorship and all their shit.
Wow... So much shit changing, and with my graduation tomorrow morning... I respect dropping out before killing the show, and I respect giving us some warning, but PLEASE make the last few episodes timeless. At the least a movie to wrap it all up like previously stated. And yes, the show is getting really repetitive, seeing as Stans birthday was just in Whale Whores, remember? Randy-"Fun birthday, huh Stan?"
i Cryed.. i mean Seriously the ONLY Show in Television history that has made me Laugh my ass Off! feel sad at times and Really care about it is Actually ending! i cant believe it but when Sharon and Randy where Fight and the words that they said Struck a Nerve that really made Sense. i didnt like the first few episodes of this Season and Really thought "this isnt south park" well watching them im glad if it ends Before it Gets Over played and really isnt funny anymore. i hate to see that happen with this show since i respect and think so highly of it. its just so hard! ive Grew up on South park since i was a baby and i own every Episode on my PS3 and on Disk i even own Stan, Kenny, Cartman, and Kyle dolls at a Fair that comes to my town once a year.. im really going to miss this and i guess its back to playing every episode on my PS3 on replay when its all over =[
A overlooked scene that tells it all is when the two old guys are outside the house as Randy and Sharon are fighting:
"You... sure you wanna do this?"
"We got to now."
7 more, guys.
it could be matt and trey fucking with us....i mean its not the first time. they did kill off kenny for good for a while remember? maybe this is just a sign that the show will be taking a slightly different direction this time (i.e after kenny came back they no longer did the tradition of killing him all the time)...or maybe im in denial who knows we will find out next week!
all i know is...if its the end and its gonna end like this its gonna be soo sad :'(
ps. im sorry for all those dubstep fans but im 21 and i think its just...really shitty and a new low in music so i liked that part of the episode but the rest was so depressing!
Dudes, southpark vowed a long time ago to outlast the Simpsons to be the longest running show. It was once a battle of which was better Simpsons or Southpark- Southpark won. As they say, the show must go on.
Wow. Honestly this South Park episode just left me speechless, I don't even know what to think about the direction the show might take now, for one I don't want it to end, because I truly enjoy the show, but in the other hand it might be the right thing to do, is just the natural progression of things, and in fact part of growing and keep going on. I just think this review compluetely resumed it for me, from the comparission you made between tween wave and dubstep (on a side note I do like dubstep, I just could tell right away that was the music they were talking about, and I found it pretty funny that yo though the same thing) to the spot on description that you gave about the message the creators might be giving to us with this episode. I am just about to hit my 20s and couldn't help but relate to Stan growing up and I was really moved by this episode. It's being a good run and I just cant wait to see what happens.
This episode means the show will end soon.. And its going to be hard to except it but people can only stop working on somthing for so long that they get bored ..its kind of like what happened Chappelle's show and it still has left a dent in comedy central if south park does end what will keep it alive Tosh is going leave at a point and then what the daily show or ugly americans.. South park is going to leave a dent in people and we will miss it..
I'm sad to see it end too, but at the same time if they're planning on ending this season with more of this kind of episodes I think it's the best possible thing they could do. I found this episode kind of touching, which isn't something you can say about South Park that often. If this is the beginning of the end... then wow. What an ending it's going to be.
the funny thing is, i've really enjoyed this season. if you dont like this is the beginning of the end, you should probably stop watching.
That was a really sad episode. I think this is the first time where watching South Park got more than just laughs out of me. I love this show, and grew up on it. I am Muslim, and fully supported the Muhammad (saws) episodes. I just don't know what to feel. Seeing that episode crushed me. Stan growing up, and Kyle and Cartmen smiling at each other? :(
Oh god Its over. No wait it can't be over. This isn't like south park there's always some sort of funny twist at the end that says "oh just kidding its not ending like this" but this time the episode just ended. And when it did said outloud "that's it!?!". So this isn't a normal south park episode and I'm starting to regret watching it cuz I was having a nice day and this will just make me go to bed feeling empty and sad and confused and I'm looking forward to seeing what the next episode will be after this. And I hope it will be funny and fun like it always has been.
Mario... your article is from 2007...
DID YOU GUYS NOTICE THE ALIEN IN THE BLOWING ALLY???
ITS LIKE THE BEGGING WHERE THEY HIDE ALIENS THROUGH OUT THE EPIODES
In the commentary for the Indiana Jones episode (The China Problem), Matt and Trey talked about quitting before they started to rape the boys like Lucas raped Indiana.
Also, remember the episode (Osama bin Laden Has Farty Pants) where they made fun of Stevie Nicks by having the soldiers think that a goat bleating was her singing? In this episode her song "Landslide" was the only song that didn't have fart sounds played over it.
