The kids of South Park are now men forced to return to their home town after the death of one of their own, in a world still ravaged by covid.
Honestly I think the main reason for my low score is because I am personally I am really bored of covid and talking about it, seeing this whole hour special just go on and on about it became old quickly. I wish it could have been about anything else.
That said I do admire the show for lampooning the current crisis and laughing at how extremely over the top some people have been about it, acting like it is the end of days or something. I thought this coupled with the side plot about comedy in the era of cancel culture/ woke comedy were really interesting and insightful comments on where we are right now as a species.
I didn’t think this was the funniest thing I have ever seen from South Park as though there were a few jokes that landed, and landed well for that matter, for the most part they left me cold. I don’t know if it is because of my apathy towards hearing about covid but I didn’t find myself laughing a whole lot here.
Overall, if this hadn’t been about covid I probably would have found it funnier.
A few good jokes
Not being afraid to laughable at how over the top some people have been with covid
Comments about woke comedy
I am bored of covid narratives
It is not hugely funny
The central mystery is not all that interesting
