South Park – Cash For Gold

Season 16 continued Wednesday night with the show taking on a very popular industry and who it affects. Check below for the synopsis, what made it good, and what could have been better.


The Premise
Stan’s grandfather buys him a gold and diamond bolo tie, but Stan doesn’t really want it so he decides to try and trade it in at a Ca$h For Gold place. After finding out that it’s not worth nearly as much as it was paid for Cartman decides to exploit this find to his advantage while Stan, Kyle, and Kenny try to get to the bottom of this industry that preys on the elderly.
