Season Nine of 'South Park'

The Emmy award-winning season nine is not really one of my favorite South Park seasons. Don't get me wrong, it has some funny moments; like Gerald becoming a Jewfin, Cartman eating the skin off all the Kentucky Fried Chicken, and the boys sending a dead whale to the moon. But I feel like the episodes are kind of dull. It's still better than anything else on TV, just a little less interesting than some other seasons. But perhaps I am letting the personal issues I had at the time reflect my opinion. In October 2005 I fell in love for the first time. It was with someone who loved South Park almost as much as me. It changed my life forever, and of course, my life includes South Park. Long story short: never fall in love. Some other great moments this season are the boys trying to lose at baseball, Cartman finally ridding South Park of hippies, and everyone running from global warming. An awesome quote also comes from the episode "The Losing Edge" when Randy is taken away in a cop car screaming, "I'm sorry! I thought this was America!" One of my least favorite episodes aired in this run, "Erection Day", where Jimmy keeps popping a boner in public. I'm just not a big fan of Jimmy episodes. He is fine as a supporting character but when he gets his own story it bothers me for some reason. Then there is Mr. Garrison becoming a woman, which is kind of annoying but still an interesting character development. Alas, no matter what this is surely a season and time in my life I could never forget (no matter how hard I try).
