Ok, I want to see people's opinions on the episodes of Season 16 so I decided to make this. I'll be providing a review of the newest episode as soon as I can after it is released, and I want to see what you guys thought of it aswell! And I'll review the season as a whole once it's finished. So, what do ya say? Anyway, here's the reviews!

Episode 1 - Reverse Cowgirl

First Thought - To be honest, I didn't like how this episode seemed. It sounded like they were resorting to toilet humour because of a lack of ideas, literally! I thought it would be much less funny than Cash for Gold but ironically, it was the other way around! Funniness - 9/10

Drama - 6/10

Parodying - 7/10 - John Harrington and the Toilet, lawyers who scam you for money and airport security that make you feel uncomfortable!

Best Character Use - Eric Cartman - He threatened to kill a baby just so he could leave the toilet seat up!

Worst Character Use - Cyde Donovan - This should have been his episode but the focus went off of him pretty fast!

Review - I thought this was a HILARIOUS opening episode, with plenty of jokes and a role for almost all the characters (I'll always remeber ya Kenny!). I thought how we finally got some character development for Clyde was good, but it definitely could have been made more dramatic (his mother died and the focus went off Clyde after like 10 minutes!). It wasn't parodying anything except maybe toilets and the inventor, John Harrington. Oh, and scamming lawyers! Anyway, I still thought it was a great episode, very funny, and that it had ALOT of humour in it!

Final Result - 8/10

Update: I didn't know the TSA were real. Add another point to Parodying!

Episode 2 - Cash for Gold

First Thought - I actually thought this episode would be quite funny when compared with Reverse Cowgirl, with Cartman being the star and Stan having the subplot, but ironically, it was the other way around!

Funniness - 5/10

Drama - 9/10

Parodying - 10/10 - Cash for Gold businesses that scam old people was BOTH plots!

Best Character Use - Stan Marsh OR Marvin Marsh - Stan did everything in that episode for his grandfather and Marvin was successfully and dramatically reintroduced to the series!

Worst Character Use - Kyle Broflovski - He had few lines and just stood beside Stan for most of the episode so basically, he copied Kenny!

Review - This episode was a huge let down! It had so much potential, but it was all wasted so that Marvin Marsh could be reintroduced to the series, which seemed to be the only point of this episode, however I noticed that Cartman and Butters were thrown in there to try and make the episode funny and they succeeded! I kept looking forward to Cartman segments and dreading Stan segments, in fact, the only funny part of Stan's story was when he asked Dean to kill himself! A fairly average episode all together.

Final Result - 7/10

Episode 3 - Faith Hilling

First Thought - I thought it would be an average to decent episode, not as good as the first one maybe, but not as poor as the second one, which wasn't too bad, just not very funny. Funniness - 10/10 - The trains randomly killing everyone!

Drama - 6/10 - Kyle and Cartman's scene had the most drama, when they realise they have to move on.

Parodying - 7/10 - Parodying how memes seem to change so quickly.

Best Character Use - Kenny McCormick or the Politicians - Kenny because this is his biggest role in an episode this season or last, not including The Poor Kid, and the Politicians because they were darn funny!

Worst Character Use - Memes Teacher - Although he was funny at first, showing the video and making Butters put a gun in his mouth, he really was only there for a subplot that was never actually resolved and although quite funny, made no sense.

Review - The best episode out of the first three in my opinion! Absolutely hilarious, especially during the video when the trains randomly kill memers. The ridiculous new memes were hilarious and even Butters small role managed to keep everyone laughing the whole time (I think). My only flaw, if it even is one, is the subplot about cats evolving. It would have been fine, and I even considered it very funny, but it was never really resolved and stopped making sense towards the end of it, but I guess that just adds to the humour. To sum up, a great episode of South Park!

Final Result - 9/10

Episode 4 - Jewpacabra

First Thought - I thought, yay! A Kyle episode! The first one that seemed to focus on him since HUMANCENTiPAD, but then I read the plot and thought, oh, maybe it's just Cartman trying to ridicule the Jews and Kyle's only role will be to be very pissed with him. Hopefully I'm wrong, like the plot of Faith Hilling was very different to how it was described at first, with the original plot just being a subplot, and maybe Kyle will get a bigger, more original role! Hopefully.....

Funniness - 5/10

Drama - 8/10

Parodying - 6/10 - Passover, Jews, Ancient Egypt.

Best Character Use - Eric Cartman - He was the episode's only focus, there was no one else for Best Character Use really.

Worst Character Use - Butters Stotch - Although usually I love Butters, I found he had no real use in this episode and he wasn't even funny when he was thrown in, except at the very start.

Review - Ok, not the highlight of the season. It was actually pretty dull at some parts, but in fairness there were some gags thrown in when they were needed, I thought the Egyptians blaming everything on God and then all exploding was kinda funny so.......

Final Result - 6/10

Episode 5 - Butterballs

First Thought: Woohoo! Another Butter episode! And Stan thrown in for good measure. I thought it would be a good episode and tried to figure out who (other than Cartman obviously) would bully Butters. I really did look forward to it.

Funniness - 8/10

Drama - 5/10

Parodying - 8/10 - Kony 2012, Bullying, Jason Russell, San Diego.

Best Character Use - Butters - Even though Stan was given the main plot, I thought that this was Butter's episode.

Worst Character Use - The Guy in Charge of the Anti-Bullying Representative - Sorry! Can't remember his name but I thought he was pretty pointless in this episode.

Review - An amazing episode! All the cameos from old characters (even Tweak!) in the music video were great, and Butters' Grandma being so cruel was very funny, and just added to Butters' bad luck! I also liked the way almost every child character that is in a prominent enough role over the series got a speaking role in this episode. And the song about San Diego? HILARIOUS! My only negative thought was that some characters were thrown in but not really necessary and didn't really acomplish anything.

Final Result - 8/10

Episode 6 - I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining

First Thought: Sounds very promising! I already have a couple of theories for how it could happen! Cartman could have his own, ridiculous survival techniques, while Kyle tries to use his sensibility to survive, but guess who succeeds? That is one of a hundred, equally funny possibilities for a promising episode!

Funniness - 7/10

Drama - 6/10

Parodying - 8/10 - The whole thing was one long parody of Survival Shows, particularly 'I Shouldn't Be Alive'.

Best Character Use - Kenny McCormick - All four of the boys had a prominent place in this episode due to the lack of supporting characters, but Kenny had as big a role as the other three in this episode, which is unusual nowadays, and the herpes was funny!

Worst Character Use - Live-Action Boys - If they'd gotten kid actors, maybe, although I know they couldn't because it is an 18's program, but the actors weren't how I would ever visualise the four boys and I kept wishing ' Please go back to animation!' the whole time.

Review - A funny parody episode, and I was happy to see that M&T are changing to keep SP fresh, but aren't overdoing it (making Cartman and Kyle friends made me think 'This is the end', but they seem to be back to how they used to be). A documentary episode was a genius and funny idea that I definitely didn't see coming! My only fault was the live-action part, the actors just didn't feel right, and if you've read above you'll already know I disliked them. Anyway, a great difference to usual with jokes and, KENNY DIES! A great episode other than the Live Action part, so I'll give it a......

Final Result - 7 (and a half)/10
