Pabst Blue Ribbon, agnosticism, shows like Cops, and Penn State get the South Park treatment
3 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is the 15th season finale. It starts with Kenny's parents being arrested for their meth lab and general drunkenness on a television show called White Trash in Trouble. Kenny, along with his siblings, are sent to foster care by the caseworker Mr. Adams (who just can't help making an endless string of jokes about the Penn State rape abuse scandal).

They're sent to live with the agnostic Weatherheads, who are foster parents for a lot of kids in Greeley, Colorada, which is apparently the exact opposite of Hawaii. The kids can only drink one beverage. Well, two. Dr. Pepper and Diet Dr. Pepper. Because it's not root beer nor cola. No one quite knows what it is. Yeah, it's like that.

Being a protective services caseworker for protective services, I've encountered plenty of Mr. Adams' and plenty of foster parents like the Weatherheads. The fact that South Park treats all the Penn State jokes as though they're stale makes the satire pretty fresh. Agnosticism rarely gets made fun of either. Those are a lot of things that make the episode fairly refreshing. The White Trash in Trouble stuff is great too.

I would have rated this episode a 7 out of 10 if not for the splendid ending. Goodbye Kenny. 'Til next season that is.
