Being one of my favorite shows of all time, and having almost 250 episodes (whoah), I took it upon myself to make a list of my personal best South Park episodes of all time. Trey Parker and Matt Stone's masterpiece show has way more good episodes than bad, so saying this is a hard list to make is an understatement. By the way, these are all my opinion, so if you don't like an episode on the list, mad about an episode missing, or just don't agree with something I wrote, make your own list. Honorable mentions go to "Asspen", "Super Best Friends", the newest season's "Black Friday" trilogy, and "Good Times with Weapons". Let's not waste anymore time, folks, here we go with my favorite episodes of South Park!
10: Obama Wins!The thing I love most about the show's pop culture episodes is that they can sometimes blend together two different things going on in the world today. "Obama Wins!" is the prime example of that, mixing together the 2012 election and Disney buying Star Wars. There's something here for both of those categories. You have Mickey Mouse flying in Slave 1, while the smart political satire that South Park is know for is still there. "Obama Wins!" is one of the best episodes in recent years, and, of course, one of my favorites.
Kenny episode ever (Sorry Mysterion fans, I love those too). Of course, there's a giant war between Heaven and Hell that's "even bigger than the final battle in the Lord of the Rings movie." But, that's not even my favorite part of the episode. My favorite part was the brilliant commentary on the then-current Terri Schiavo case. As Kenny puts it:"If I should ever be in a vegetative state and kept on life support, please, for the love of god, don't ever show me in that condition on television."
8: CancelledThe Season 7 premiere is the absoulute best-ever meta story. The idea of using "Cartman Gets An Anal Probe" for this story is a stroke of genius. The episdoe actually starts out like a redone version of that episode, until The Boys and Chef realize that this has all happened before. One trip to Jeff Goldblum and a giant taco that poops ice cream in space later, and they find out that Earth itself is actually a reality show run by the Visitors we met in the very first episode. The very image of Najix in his taco form is enough to show why this episode made #8.
7: Casa BonitaThere is so many awesome Cartman/Butters team-ups out there.I could have picked "Super Fun Time" or "AWESOM-O", but Casa Bonita takes the cake for me. Cartman making Butters think he's the last survivor in a nuclear holocaust just to get to go to Kyle's birthday party is truly questionable...and funny.
6: Go God Go and Go God Go XIIBeing a parody of Buck Rogers that explores athiesm, this two-parter shows the incredible story of Cartman's impatience going too far..in time. Even though the episodes are mostly about his plight for the Nintendo Wii, the examination of religion, war, politics, and every prank call inbetween makes this episode a classic. Also K-10, bark bark.
5: TowelieTowelie: He's the worst character ever, but that's why he's the best character ever. I still don;t know what got the writers to think of a talking towel addicted to drugs, but whoever thought of it impacted the show forever. That's mostly thanks to his first appearance, where the boys get caught up in a government conspiracy while trying to get their Okama Gamesphere. With the boys not really giving a shit about these aliens and towels, this is my favorite episode that runs solely on the main four.
4: Imaginationland TrilogyIf you put every single fictional character ever made into a freaking warzone, you get South Park's absolutley genius Imaginationland Trilogy. They are so well made, both animation-wise and plot-wise, while still being funny as hell. I think Episode III is my favorite, because of the battle and the perfect ending for three perfect episodes.
South Park (Sort of like the reason I made this list, Stick of Truth). Even with it's fantasy-theme, it's still all about kids being kids, and adults...well....having to explain porn to their children.
Randy Marsh's greatest episodes, and that is saying a lot. Him as a noob on an online game is a match made in heaven, especially when given the fictional Sword of a Thousand Truths.
And the number one greatest episode of all time...will not be seen tonight! So we can give you this Terrance and Phillip special! Just kidding..
