I've been meaning to start discussion on a TV show for a while and I think I'll go with South Park since that's a show that merits a lot of discussion.

its my favorite TV show at the moment and its one of my favorite TV shows of all time, if we go by TV shows and not by seasons. But ironically I actually stopped watching the show at one point because at my inital disappointment of the movie. But I did start watching a few years after that, and I even found the movie to be much better than I thought.

I think one of the best parts about the show is how it improved greatly from being a simple show with simple plots to a very complex show with tons of satire and complex plots. I also liked how background characters like Butters and Randy Marsh became regulars and became some of the best characters on the show.

This past season has been ok to good. But the 200 and 201 episodes were classic. I did like how they finally took advantage of their continuity and really went full throttle with solving a lot of the mysteries of the shows' run.

Unfortinately last night's episode "201" isnt on their website due to the whole Mohammed thing which caused a lot of the episode to be censored and bleeped. I'm referring to this:

I guess CC caved into that which probably upset the shows' creators. Stay tuned for the fallout of this.

I have 201 taped to watch at some point. I assume 200 is up on Comedy Central's website?

They took it off, but for contractual obligations. It should be up next month, hopefully.
