Tv Season Info

The sophomore series of Trey Parker and Matt Stone's often outrageous satirical animated program "South Park" kicks off with the infamous episode "Terrence and Phillip in Not Without My Anus," and not with the resolution of the cliffhanger from last season about the identity of Cartman's father. That fact does however come to light in the second episode of this series that also includes a satire of the reality program "Cops" in the episode titled "Chickenlover." Other highlights include the song Chef (Isaac Hayes) sings in "Chef's Chocolate Salty Balls," a Christmas episode where the Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Eric are kidnapped by Charles Manson, and Cartman trying to get a gig selling Cheesy Poofs in "Roger Ebert Should Lay Off the Fatty Foods."

It's 20 minutes and change, and I dozed off twice while watching it.

It's fun, funny, and clever and an early example of South Park greatness.

Audience Reviews for South Park: Season 2

  • Aug 18, 2017
    The second season of South Park gets even crazier as the boys get into more hilarious antics. This season Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny help solve the case of a serial chicken molester, go to the world dodgeball championship, foil a nefarious plot by a planetarium owner, throw a music concert to save Chef, do battle with their evil selves from a parallel dimension, and discover the mysterious Underpants Gnomes. Additionally, the show pulls a wild April Fool's joke by kicking off the season with a full-length Terrence and Phillip episode (instead of the promised conclusion to the "Who's Cartman's Mom?" mystery). The animation is improved but still sticks to the crude cardboard cutout look, and the satire is incredibly sharp and clever. The parodies are also extremely funny; riffing on Star Trek, the Grinch, Poltergeist, Titanic, America's Most Wanted, and America's Funniest Home Videos. The laughs keep coming in Season 2 as South Park adds more characters are gets more ambitious in its storytelling.

    While some episodes may be hit or miss, Season 2 of South Park remains an important stepping in the show's history - and a great overall season to boot.

    Season 2 continued from the first season, it includes introduction to many new characters and better tongue in cheek humour in general. Though still quite silly at times.

    My favorite episode is the April fool's joke that was just a Terrence and Philip episode. Loved it. So many outrageous characters.

    The second Season gave us more character development Chef has become my favorite character with the boys being Great aswell. With 18 fun and memorable episodes It's a good Season with tons of funny and goofy episodes and a lot of good supporting characters and slightly better animation than the first season. Best Episode: "Chef's Salty Chocolate Balls" Worst Episode: "City on the Edge of Forever"

    Sometimes funny, sometimes dumb. 'South Park' continues and it's definitely a funnier adventure -- with returning jokes and new ones. But of course; it's not always a fun nor exciting story. Its plot can drag on with boring stuff, but the characters are always fun to follow and they shine with unique personality traits. Sure expositions, returning jokes, lacking character development and a too dumb story might not impress all of you. But it does to me, to a somewhat extent. Average personal episode rating: 67.2/100 Personal rating: 70/ 100 Critical rating: 60/100

    Like that star wars episode in this season.

    The second season of South Park is a slight improvement on the original with the higher amount of classic episodes, mostly good jokes, improved animation, some of the more original concepts and the high amount of 18 episodes is a big plus, but it is still a beginning here with not a single standout character, some weak episodes and little attention to character arks. But it is still a pretty good season with some very interesting storylines, mostly excellent humor and a couple of terrific episodes.
