In the South Park episode, Skank Hunt, Kyle’s dad is a very popular troll on the internet. This particular episode played off of all the kid’s infatuation with their technology and social media. The writers even compared someone quitting social media to suicide which emphasized their point that people are too attached to social media. Although it is funny and vulgar, the writers always play off of what is actually going on in real life; in this case it was people and social media.
I liked this episode because it was very relevant to todays society. People are always on social media and rarely spend any time actually being social. This episode really played on that, like when they were basically comparing their technology to their lives. When the girl throws her phone off the bridge and Cartman’s technology is destroyed, the episode is really stressing just how important technology is to us.
