There hasn't been a single episode since probably 2006-8 that was simply great or must-see. If I bring South Park on my thumb drive to watch with friends, they will not be interested any more. Key and Peele, Silicon Valley, Tim & Eric, Eric Andre, Archer are another story.
I have never considered this show a 'must see'. However, it's the only one I watch today (on VOD).
I disagree about this season being bad; I liked some of the continuity and topical natures -- the bits like Randy's singing voice & lyrics, Wacky Races, last episode being centered around basically 1 single gag, etc. aren't particularly spectacular and mostly horrible, but at the same it isn't a chore to watch nor is barely passable.
Watching sports has been a chore so I've basically stopped minus the NFL. Hell, Colbert and Daily Show were becoming awful headaches whenever I'd randomly return to them.
In general, I find TV utterly boring and complete drivel. But at the same time it's based on me comparatively watching absolutely nothing, and that includes not viewing Archer, etc. I liked some of Key and Peele's sketches, but I don't think I could tolerate that type of show on a regular schedule. For whatever reason, that's not the case with South Park (currently) so I'm pleased.
