Sure, it does have fart jokes but what it has really involved into is a show that depicts a wide range of current events, pop cultures references, social problems through the lenses of a group of 10 year olds and all the wacky characters that surround them.
The fact that the drawings are fairly simple also makes a lot of people shy away from it, but actually this show has a completely unique approach to several divisive or thought-provoking subjects. To name a few:
- 'The Hobbit" looks at how photoshopped photos makes society expectations of a woman's body hard to reach and the amount of pressure it may put on little girls (whilst taking hilarious jabs at Kanye West and Kim Kardashian)
- "You're getting old" takes you over the nightmare that is feeling like you might be mentally older than you friends and that may make left out
- Console Wars episodes dive into the consumerism involving Black Friday, video games and the world's obsession with Game of Thrones
These are all great episodes and I think the show if anything has aged well with time.
The other brilliant thing about South Park is that because each episode gets produced in the span of week, it can be more up to date than any scripted show - just this season it referenced Kavanaugh nomination controversy in an episode even before he was eventually confirmed.
Second 10/10 I have given on IMDb and South Park is well deserving of it.
