Tv Season Info

Trey Parker and Matt Stone's quartet of foul-mouthed fourth-graders face a brand-new set of adventures in the series' ninth series, which opens with Mr. Garrison's notorious sex-change operation. Other highlights include Cartman battling the town's infestation of hippies and Kenny leading an army in heaven against Satan's minions (giving commands via a PSP game). Some of the series' best-known (and most divisive) episodes aired during series 9. Of particular note is "Best Friends Forever," which parodies the contentious right-to-die issue and earned the show its first Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program. The timely episode was obviously based on the case of Terri Schiavo, who died the day after the episode aired. The 12th episode of the series, "Trapped in the Closet," also attracted a fair share of controversy for its heavy criticism of Scientology and memorably features an extended sequence of scenes in which Tom Cruise, John Travolta and R. Kelly lock themselves in Stan's closet, with various characters and newscasters begging them to "please come out of the closet."

"Die Hippie, Die" is just classic, hilarious South Park, starring, of course, Cartman as a just terrible person, even though his threat assessment is correct.

It's bold, it's revelatory and it's relevant, but most importantly, it's side-splittingly hilarious.

Still going strong after eight seasons... South Park is the sole show on basic cable that completely understands how to do satire.

Audience Reviews for South Park: Season 9

    While some episodes were controversial to say the least, Season 9 of South Park is not afraid of saying what it wishes to say and dishing out some truly hilarious riffs at pop culture, celebrities and religion itself.

    A controversial season that maybe went a bit too far beyond the boundary. Nonetheless it is exactly what makes South Park great.

    It started off with a great first episode, then followed it up with two weak ones. They knocked it out of the park with the next Three all of which are Great "Best Friends Forever" was the first South Park Episode to win an Emmy Award. the rest of the season was really good aswell. I mainly loved Randy Marsh who was really great in this season as were the four boys, Mr. Garrison and Butters as usual. But Season 9 has problems the biggest one is that there is no Chef his character only appeared once and that is sad. I'd say Season 9 of South Park is nowhere near the quality of the previous season, but it is still great with many classic episodes. Best Episode: "The Death of Eric Cartman" Worst Episode: "Wing"

    Season 9 is just as good, not any better, than Season 8.

    i love south park and this is probably one of the best seasons but tords the middle of the season the episodes seemed a little lazy but its south park .

    Still solid and still satirical, South Park continues to be funny and smart, but on a lesser level.
