Critic Reviews for South Park Season 19

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

From the season 19 premiere onward, political correctness is positioned in the show in some surprising ways.

Dec 10, 2015 | Full Review…

Where past South Park satires once looked at single issues, this season is sketching something like a grand - if messy - unified theory of anger, inequality and disillusionment in 2015 America.

Dec 9, 2015 | Full Review…

The best argument for the continuing existence of Comedy Central's legacy show is that even now, almost two decades after the show became a left-field hit, co-creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone keep finding new ways to air old grievances.

Sep 22, 2015 | Full Review…

Whenever South Park returns for a new season, part of the excitement is seeing what news stories Trey Parker and Matt Stone have been loading up on during the show's break.

Top Critic

It was a fascinating season, at times frustrating in the same way that drove me from the series in the first place, at others so funny that it made me regret having been gone for so long.

Mar 11, 2019 | Full Review…

One of its finest seasons.

Mar 11, 2019 | Full Review…

The little town of bigots, starkly opposed to progressive ideas, physically and morally transformed this season. South Park's storytelling capabilities did, too.

Oct 19, 2018 | Full Review…

South Park has coasted for years now. Even if not everything works, it's nice to see the show waking up again.

Nov 5, 2015 | Full Review…

Considering political correctness can often be the death knell for comedy, it's still impressive how South Park was able to wring so many laughs out of the subject while making a valid argument against P.C. mongers in its premiere.

Sep 17, 2015 | Full Review…

South Park's latest episode took on political correctness with scathing wit and truly outrageous moments.

Audience Reviews for South Park: Season 19

  • Nov 13, 2016
    Season 19 of South Park delivers plenty of laughs and is as culturally relevant as ever. After Principal Victoria is removed for making insensitive remarks she is replaced by PC Principle, a no-nonsense authoritarian who's intent on forcing South Park to embrace a progressive attitude about race, gender, and privilege; meanwhile Mr. Garrison make a run for president when South Park becomes overrun with immigrants. As usual show creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone take on current hot button political issues, including Yelping, gentrification, internet news ads, ISIS, and Trump's presidential run. And there's a lot of serial storytelling, with several themes and story arcs building over multiple episodes. However, the clever satire and outlandish comedy can sometimes get spoiled by some of the more crude and irreverent jokes. Yet while it goes a little too far at times, overall South Park's 19th season is a lot of fun.

    Not funny compared to the previous seasons, I'm really disappointed.

    PC Principal is almost everything I hate in PC culture!

    Season 19 is even worse than its predecessor when it comes to continuity. Whereas the previous season only had a couple of subplots continuing and feeling connected, this one is all one giant, epic, fully connected storyline and although that's admirable, I don't like it as it led to an obsession with just one subject matter (political correctness) and it left no room for traditional humor. "Stunning and Brave" Is an okay episode introducing PC Principal but I felt Eric Cartman could have been handled better. "Where My Country Gone?" Is a really good episode with Mr. Garrison being absolutely hilarious and great in this one with his song and impersonating Donald Trump. "The City Part of Town" Is a really weak episode it's just really unfunny and those live-action commercial segments just became really annoying. "You're Not yelping" Is a great episode about how everyone nowadays deems himself a worthy critic and has a high opinion of him/herself it's just so painfully relevant while simultaneously being laugh out loud funny throughout with one of the most amazing song in the end. "Safe Space" Is another great episode, the safe space subject matter is very important for today's society and I loved how it was portrayed in a realistic fashion, having both positive and negative aspects about it. And Randy's subplot here is so clever and laugh out loud funny. "Tweek X Craig" Is the most beautiful South Park episode of all time visually. It's animation is just superb. It's also a very funny episode with a lot of good moments emotionally, also I really like Craig so any episodes starring this character are a really good thing to me. "Naughty Ninjas" has some great moments with the boys and I liked Officer Barbrady quite a bit here, but the fusion of these two subplots isn't the greatest and the episode frankly felt too repetitive and, as is the case with the entire season, the emphasis is too much on satire instead of good humor. "Sponsored Content, Truth and Advertising, PC Principal Final Justice" easily the worst trilogy in South Park history, it's annoying, way too rushed and so weakly edited that you just stop caring about the story it's trying to tell, but the worst part is that it's never once funny I never laughed once and on a show like South Park which has made me laugh so much and is one of the funniest shows of all time that is just a shame. Season 19's handling of PC culture was excellent but it became obsessed with that subject matter to the point of being repetitive. It is a season obsessed with relevance and continuity and it rarely delivers great humor. PC Principal does have some good moments, but is mostly an annoying new character. the season does have some great episodes like 2, 4, 5 and 6 but most of the other episodes are just ok or frankly boring, the entire season and continuity in general is just not funny and entertaining enough but overall I do feel like this season is a slight improvement over season 18. Best Episode: "Tweek X Craig" Worst Episode: "Sponsored Content, Truth And Advertising, PC Principal Final Justice" Trilogy

    Spot on social commentary, great new character additions, and a newly implemented over-arching storyline. Season 19 is quite possibly the best, most consistently funny season of South Park to date. 5/5 stars

    Not sure how this has such good reviews. This is long, drawn out, overexaggerated, reaching too hard, idk, its just awful, not like classic south park at all. I watched season 20 before season 19 and season 20 was a lot better, but god season 19 was awful to watch, wasn't the least bit funny or humorous other than Mr. Garrison impersonating trump. Besides that, it was super corny and lame.

    After several years of just coasting by, South Park finally decided to shake up its formula for its 19th season. The show introduced a serialized format this year, that carried a central theme about gentrification while also tying it into politically-correct zealots and subliminal advertising. Certainly a good idea on paper, especially as the best South Park episodes were always both socially relevant and brutally funny, but there's still an inescapable aura of been-there-done-that. Most of the material here has been covered in previous seasons, and executed better, although the show's insights into the 2016 presidential race are now nothing short of prophetic. The show has some big laughs this year too, particularly when using conspiracy-thriller tropes. Longtime fans of the show are sure to enjoy this season, but newcomers are advised to stick with show's better years (anything from 1999-2008 is a safe bet).

    As a southpark fan since the start i found myself for the first time not understanding the satire . Yeah im in Australia but in previous seasons there was always an international understanding behind any specific usa political statement....but this season missed the mark on a universal humor or relevant storyline beyond america. As this season moved deaper into a draged out story line i found it difficult to have sympathy for the characters plight or understand the point and indeed the ending of most episodes. The process became more painful as it became apparent that every storyline basically followed a current facebook trend....without meaning to. Like a meme that floats on your feed for too long - the reocurring theme outlived its usefulness and loses its power to entertain. I hope this isnt the beginning of the end for southpark
