But things aren’t looking good for Elise Testone and Hollie Cavanaugh who were also in the bottom three. Funny, I’ve been railing on DeAndre all year because I didn’t get what the judges loved so much about him. Glad […]Read On »

Whatever, its IDOL logic that never makes any sense. Just a bit of rant before I […]Read On »

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: April 4, 2012 It figures SOUTH PARK would eventually deliver a clunker at some point during Season 16 and that honor goes to the ambitious, promising, but ultimately flat “Jewpacabra.” This will be known as the episode where Cartman finally becomes a Jew and understands Kyle’s pain, but a promising premise ultimately gets undermined by a lack of focus. In what starts off as another way for Cartman to ruin a holiday (namely Passover and Easter), Cartman invents the legend of the “Jewpacabra.” It’s under the […]Read On »
