South Park and linear story telling
South Park is undeniably a trend setter in its crude political, up to date humour. From its conception in 1997 until its 18th season, South Park did not really attempt a full season story arc. There have been a few three episode long specials but none like the 19th or 20th seasons. It is interesting to see these characters who have pushed the boundaries for years, finally have ramifications for their actions that carry over from episode to episode. Personally, I have enjoyed this change of pace and I am excited to see how the 20th season unfolds. It would be interesting to see what this could mean for South Park’s style of comedy, for their future story telling and much more!
