    ‘South Park’ Will Cover Caitlyn Jenner In Their Most ‘Stunning’ Episode Ever

    The bad: Key & Peele will no longer be on Comedy Central on Wednesday nights, like, ever. The good: South Park is back! The animated series, which was once stupidly dismissed as childish filth but has since become a TV institution, is returning for a 19th season tomorrow night, and it’s about time. Matt Stone and Trey Parker have missed Donald Trump, missed Jared Fogle (who’s rumored to show up at some point this year), missed The Dress. Y’know, everything important that’s happened culturally since the last new episode aired in December 2014.

    So who will tomorrow night’s episode be about? According to EW, it’s Caitlyn Jenner, almost assuredly with more grace and subtlety than Family Guy.

    “There is a new principal at the helm of South Park Elementary. He forces the boys to confront the damage they’ve done through their history of racism and unconscious bias. It is the most stunning and brave South Park ever”…which seems to be a reference to Kris Jenner’s quote about Caitlyn accepting the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the July ESPYS Awards. Jenner called Caitlyn’s speech “amazing and very brave.” (Via Entertainment Weekly )

    Judging by the description above, this sounds like it could be South Park‘s “Homer’s Enemy,” where a “normal” person, then Frank Grimes/now “a new principal,” has to interact with someone like Homer/Eric Cartman. Or it’s nothing like that, but Cartman still makes him go insane. Either way, “Stunning and Brave” will also somehow cover Deflategate. Please no “deflated balls” joke.

    Comedy Central released a clip from the premiere.


    And here’s the season trailer.

    tl;dr

    South Park stopped being funny around the same time as the Wig.

    I've been catching an almost preachy air of "PC liberalism" to South Park the last few seasons and it's mildly disturbing...

    This is the first time ever that I can say I'm glad Caitlin is still a relevant news topic. I can't wait to see how South Park treats the story.

    Cartman was right about Giselle not being that hot.

    The episode will have a few minutes of funny material with a ridiculous voice but end with some pc hidden agenda bullshit about tolerating 6'2 freakshows with tits and a dick.

    Unless of course they show him getting railroaded by kanye or something like they did with garrison.

    South park is still as unPC as anything around. Not 100% classic episodes like in the past, but still some hilarious shit. This show is the greatest political satire of our generation and should win some sort of nobel prize or something for its pure genius (most of the time).

    I'll give it a chance. But I am a little worried that these guys are following Hamptons Howard into limousine liberalism

    I really don't see how anyone thinks the most polarizing, unapologetic & biting satirists of the past 20yrs are gonna go 'PC'...when have they ever compromised?

    So it's like when Howard gets back from vacation, gotta cover all the month and a half old news he missed?

    Which wouldn't be such a big deal if the show wasn't essentially "throw a dart at newspaper headlines" since Season 5.

    I hope not.


    I have to be honest and say I have not noticed it wimping out but after reading posts here I am thinking there have been some play it safe topics...

    Either way...the one that got edited to crap alone gets them a free pass from me for awhile. They really need to go full on HSS for me to get down on them.
