Clearly the funniest cartoon still being produced. And it keeps getting better. Progressing from the early Santa vs Jesus episodes (find them to download) to the brilliant series 10 with the rare 2 parter - "Cartoon Wars".
Discuss why South Park is better than Family Guy.

Who is a better character? Cartman or Butters. Or other?
Yeah, I watched the first few of season 10, up to the Towelie episode. The original Towelie episode from season 5 is one of my all time favourites, but dude, this one sucked big time. That's put me off season 10 now so I havn't watched any past that. Love Cartoon Wars though. "Kowabunga, Motha****a!"
But agreed, it wasn't "funny but got stupid", if anything it was "stupid but got funny", I used to love the old episodes, but since the newer seasons have come out, they've been so much funnier, and the style is so different it's not even really the same show anymore. The new ones are pretty much the sharpest political satire and social commentary around, as opposed to the earlier ones which were really just crude toilet humour. The seasons pretty much break down like this:
1-3: Toilet humour (but very funny toilet humour)
4-7: Ridiculous, crazy storylines with a bit of social commentary thrown in
8-10: Pretty much pure satire
5 and 6 are easily my favourites, as they combine the best of everything. I love them all though.
I usually like it when Matt and Trey do things like that, but that's just a bit stupid. It's not like it's really gonna damage the network's profits by making one bad episode, the only people who'll suffer from it are the fans who enjoy watching the show.

It was funny, and got stupid, ain't seen it in about 2 years
Miss it kind of. Is it ever on tv anymore?
Hasn't been on terrestrial for literally years unfortunately.
SP went from stupid fart and swearing gags to clever topical satire as time went on, and the new eps are still worth watching. It's very rare for a show to actually peak about 7 years after it's debut, but then SP was never a typical show
