A thoughtful and meaningful foreshadowing...
9 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have loved South Park for some time now. Many fans have complained about the quality of this season, and I had heard how Trey Parker and Matt Stone have not been so happy... but this episode gave me a much different side to the best animated show of all time.

As always, there is a cultural relevance to the episode, about the 'new' generation, but the episode also served as a sense of melancholy. We all get old. We all find ourselves feeling differently about things as we get older, and as time passes. I cannot recall any TV episode hitting on that note as much as this South Park episode. It conjured up a tone unlike anything else I had seen from South Park.

I expected the writers to come up with a new joke at the end, to reset the show like always. But it ended on the melancholy tone that I didn't expect. It was sort of depressing, but it gave the show new heights.
