The season that went over Americans' heads …
8 December 2016 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This is the finale of by far the best season South Park ever had.

But the problem is that plot lines of this complexity and a distance that far between connections, just is too much for the mostly American audience.

Which leads to hilarious complaints, like plot parts being forgotten, when it is made very very clear that those parts are still to come. And generally the "It was a mess" comments. A typical response when people do not only fail to understand something, but way beyond that, even fail to realize that they are failing. (A result of the Dunning-Kruger effect.)

Nonetheless, this episode linked most of the lines together in a – typical for South Park – right-on-the-razor's-edge deep analysis of the problem and a view on it, that allows us to see everything with humor. Exactly what comedy is supposed to do. … and gave us a cliffhanger, to make clear even to the thickest minds, that the other plot lines were grown as a basis for the next season. (A good decision.)

In the right audience, this would have had the chance, to actually make the world a little better.

But now my only concern is, that they might succumb to the power of the – unfortunately still their main audience – loud dumb. The title of this episode already smells like it. Which ultimately, they have no choice but to do; unless they start focusing on other countries as their target audience.

So it leaves me only to conclude: THANKS, PROFIT-DRIVEN DUMBING DOWN and INTELLECTUAL CRAB MENTALITY. You ruined a great thing — once again.
