Cartman Tries to Stop Mars Colonization as 'South Park' Concludes Season 20
The 20th season of South Park will come to a close this week, and it has been a wild nine episodes so far.
This season has been a continuous story arc that has focused on Internet trolling, the presidential election, and of course, the instant character hit, Member Berries.
In Wednesday's episode, the season finale titled "The End of Serialization as We Know It," Cartman will attempt to stop people from going to Mars after pushing to go there with his girlfriend in order to hide from his Internet history, which a Danish program (TrollTrace) will reveal, along with everyone else's dark searches.
"As TrollTrace goes live, Sheila logs on to see Gerald's on-line activity," according to the episode preview from Comedy Central. "At SpaceX, Cartman tries to convince the scientists that going to Mars is a bad idea. And defying their mom, Kyle and Ike get all the kids together to try to save the world from certain destruction."
This season has poked fun at both Hillary Clinton and a Donald Trump-like character. The most recent episodes have been particularly hard on the Trump character, represented by Mr. Garrison — referred to as "Giant Douche" — and his complete ineptitude to run the country.
Watch the preview for "The End of Serialization as We Know It" below.
