South Park > South Park Review: "You're Getting Old" > Comments Page 5
I nearly cried...I've been a big fan since like 1999...seen many episodes, but not all. I've thought the show has been in deline for a few seasons now...hit or miss...good episode followed by a week 1, but I don't want it to end...my all-time fave show. The stuff with Stan/Kyle and Sharon/Randy is clearly how Trey and Matt feel about the show...heck, Matt barely even works on the show anymore. I'll miss it, but everything changes and ends...one way or another.
This is Season 15, as the article mentions, they are contractually obliged to create another 7 episodes but the renewal discussions are set for this summer. This was effectively their way of telling us this is the end.
Great episode too!
landslide...fleetwood mac, smashing pumpkins and dixie chicks have also done it.
it was so sad.. what was the ending songs name
I've been a South Park Fan since I was 12 and honestly I always thought that the show was crap but after seeing every single episode I was like " Hey! This show kicks-ass"
And now it's really sad that this may be the end of South Park
Sad, the scene at the end where stand dad is sitting on the bed with him explaining what's happening almost made me cry, and when Kyle walks towards Stan at the lake and turns around :'(. This show went from Asians to divorce in an episode. And when did Stan become the main character?
This is definitely the "jumping the shark" episode. But, it's purposely done, so I really appreciate that part of it. I've never seen it as being on a downward spiral. True, some episodes were better than others, but the shows still had bite and relevance, mostly. That's what I loved about the show. As crazy as it got, they managed to get a point across when that was the purpose. Some shows were just pure unadultered entertainment. Whether or not they continue, I will always love Southpark. Well done, Mr. Parker and Mr. Stone. :)
After more than a decade of seeing the show as just a raunchy crap (or s***, as the show said), I finally got on board around three years ago. I'm not ready for it to end!

"I was sadder when the show jumped the shark about five seasons ago"
^ Mr. Hankie or Towlie weren't jumping the shark?
I am very sad :( I know its the end but sad to see it go. I'm just glad its going out on a high note.
argh, i'm so conflicted i don't know what to say! the funniest part of the episode was definitely the two hillbillies when sharon and randy were fighting. i agree with your article whole-heartedly! i love the show, but i feel like it has tapered off quite a bit as well. Still, there's so many great episodes that are so true to life that clips come to mind when certain situations in life arise. They do such a good job of expressing how many of us feel about certain issues that I know their fans like me will follow them whatever they do. But yeah, I definitely am going to bed tonight with an empty feeling. Maybe I'll watch an old episode right now... like the Goobacks one. "They took my jooob!"
No worries!!! They recently signed a deal with Comedy Central(just before Book of Mormon). The show has another season as they are contractually obligated through 2013.
I was sadder when the show jumped the shark about five seasons ago. It happened at pretty much the exact same time Isaac Hayes left the show. Through Season 9 South Park was the funniest show on TV. From Season 10 on it has been hit or miss, and the misses have missed badly.
Honestly, I have been a fan of South Park for 8 years now- was 8 at the time i first started watching- and its not like I knew it wasn't coming, but it makes me so goddamn sad to see it go...I cant stand Family Guy or Modern Family. The only other show I can tolerate is Sunny in Philadelphia but they only show the same reruns over and over again. :(
I hope South Park doesn't end ;-; Anyways, that episode was depressing as hell.
It sucks that the show could very likely be ending, but you just know that Parker and Stone will absolutely kill it with the finale
Really? I understand them getting tired of the show, but thats no excuse. I'm not a cynic normally, but this really was the worst t.v. i've seen in a long time, as true as some of the commentary over current movies and music may be, the show just sucked. lame on. I'm just gonna pretend I never caught that episode so I stop wanting to hunt them down. On a side note, goodbye trey and matt, if your other projects have shown me anything, your one trick ponies and we won't be seeing much from you after you quit southpark. enjoy your retirement
Good riddance. the show has gotten worse and worse. If they had any balls, they would pull a Chappelle and tell Comedy Central to fark off for the last 7 episodes
Dubstep does really sound like shit.
Bummed enough to go online and post as much. Very moving because it's South Park, you don't prepare yourself for seeing sad stuff, so when it happens, it hits harder. I'll be sad to see it end, personally.
Man, I am where Stan is right now... all my friends, i dont enjoy new movies because of idiotic plots and really horrible dialogue, but i still love the classics (Snatch, Godfather, etc).
But I dont think the episode was about Stone and Parker spewing out the same shit. It is just that the world keeps feeding them the same shit. Fads: skinny jeans, dubstep, rap, goth, etc.
News: sex scandals (recently weiner, or that guy that ran for president and his love children, arnold, etc.)
How many stories can they tell when everything in the world seems to be moving in a cycle/repeating. You can only beat the horse dead so many times (once).
And P.S. the duck symbolized Sarah Palin
I couldn't even make it to the end of the episode without wanting to type "the end of south park" into google. I knew it had to come eventually, and I'm also glad they likely won't burn out like the Simpsons has for years now. I hate to see such a thing of genius go, but if it does I definitely won't be surprised. If series continuity means anything, the show is just about over. Thanks for the great 15 years Trey and Matt...I have enjoyed every bit of it!
Saddest South Park ever. I'm so upset, I'm not ready for it to end, oh gawd. ;_;
I'll support Matt and Trey, of course. But damn, I really hope they don't end South Park.
I think this season has been below par but it will be nice for them to be able to do a proper ending rather than if they got cancelled.
Great review! You covered everything, (including the 7 more episodes contract). Many fans are thinking that was the series finale--Done! CAPUT!-- forever. As a big fanatic, I knew it wasn't, so I'm honestly glad you covered that. :)
