South Park returned for its 21st season Wednesday, and with it came the requisite analysis and discussions about whether or not it hit the mark in lampooning today's sociopolitical climate.
When South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker agreed to star in the 1998 comedy BASEketball, they did so under the assumption that their crude cartoon would be canceled by the time filming of the movie commenced.
Matt and Trey said they wanted to protect this season against Trump fatigue, which was unavoidable last season when one of their essential characters, Mr. Garrison, took on the Trump role.
Meanwhile, Stan's dad Randy has found a new calling: renovating houses on TV with his wife Sharon doing the decorating.
Then again, "takes on" is a generous term. "White People Renovating Houses" would probably be somewhere in the center if I had to give it a grade. Although I think that the show should've been more condemning of the racism of the white-nationalist movement, their insights on automation and gentrification and its effect on some of our country's poorest people were on point. Not only did we find out exactly why those white supremacists are so angry - calling back to the images from Charlottesville without actually trivializing any of it - they managed to roll Google, Amazon, and other tech companies into the mix as the boogeyman causing trouble for everybody this episode.
South Park is done tackling Donald Trump, just like they promised.
This didn't do a whole lot for me just because the story is a month old and it's really hard to top the actual unintentional comedy of our President. So he comes up with a solution: replacing the angry protestors with the "Alexa". By showing the realities of a bleak, gig-based future, where low-paid jobs without health insurance make up more and more of the economy, the show attempts to indicate that the blame should be placed on corporations instead of broad swaths of people. The last episode of season 20 was called "The End of Serialization As We Know It", so it could very well be the latter. Even more recent episodes like "Cock Magic" have gotten by exclusively on raunchiness and doing away with all social commentary. And because they borrow so heavily from the Charlottesville protests without ever fully skewering the participants, the episode doesn't work as social commentary, either.
The employee was sacked, but since then the debate about the company's actions to its employees has not stopped. Plaintiff Kelly Ellis stated, "It was time to stand up and say, 'This isn't OK, this isn't fair, and no more".
