Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: November 7, 2012 As SOUTH PARK winds down Season 16, the series hits a homerun with its season finale “Obama Wins!” Since this episode was pretty much done before the outcome of the Presidential election was announced, creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone could have been tempting fate with its proclamation and storyline of an Obama win or would have had to do an “alternate ending” of some sort if the Presidential election went in Mitt Romney’s direction. Regardless, “Obama Wins!” is one of the funniest …Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “A Scause for Applause”

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 31, 2012 After two strong weeks, SOUTH PARK heads back into iffy territory with “A Scause for Applause”, a failed attempt at dealing with the disgrace of Lance Armstrong for using performance enhancing drugs. In the SOUTH PARK version, everyone wearing “What Would Jesus Do” bracelets decides to cut them off when it’s discovered that Jesus used performance enhancement drugs to perform his miracles. This leads to a dilemma with Stan, who decides he’s not going to cut off his bracelet like everyone else – …Read On »

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 24, 2012 It’s been some time since SOUTH PARK has done a Halloween episode, but it was worth the wait as Trey Parker and Matt Stone come up with a new classic with “A Nightmare on Facetime.” Sending up THE SHINING, Blockbuster Video’s financial woes, The Avengers and our obsession with Apple products, there’s enough good will here to provide ample laughs and a great story to boot. When Stan’s dad Randy comes home and says the family is going to be rich because he …Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Going Native”

Butters gets some bad news from his parents in SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Going Native” | ©2012 Comedy Central Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 18, 2012 Often times SOUTH PARK tries so hard to be topical and “parody” things all the time, that you begin to expect parodies even when there is none. And sometimes, when they are sending something up – it can get quite obscure and then you feel like a complete idiot for not even getting the point of the episode. “Go Native” is one …Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Insecurity”

Ike and Kyle thing the UPS man is having sex with their mom in SOUTH PARK - Season 16 - "Insecurity" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 10, 2012 Sadly SOUTH PARK seems to be struggling during the latter half of Season 16. Joining the awful “Sarastaball” is the latest episode “Insecurity” – a painfully unfunny exercise in randomness. I sense Trey Parker and Matt Stone are trying for some commentary on how fearful the nation has become since the Colorado shootings at THE DARK KNIGHT RISES screening, but it just doesn’t really work. Things kick off when Ike sees a UPS man having sex with his mom (what he doesn’t know …Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Raising the Bar”

Cartman finds another loophole in society in SOUTH PARK - Seaosn 16 - "Raising the Bar" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 4, 2012 Thank you SOUTH PARK. After an awful return for the second half of Season 16 last week with “Sarcastaball,” the series is back on track with a hilarious and very meta episode called “Raising the Bar.” The episode concerns itself with society lowering the bar and standards when it comes to overweight people and watching trashy shows like HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO. When Cartman accepts he’s fat, he loves that he can now ride around on his own motorized scooter – and …Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Sarcastaball” – Premiere

Kenny, Butters, Kyle, Stan and Cartman in SOUTH PARK - Season 16 - "Sarcastaball" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: September 26, 2012 SOUTH PARK is back for the second half of Season 16, but sadly “Sarcastaball” is one of the weakest episodes of the season by far. Taking on the current topical subject of the NFL and the replacement referees that have been destroying the game, SOUTH PARK touches on things that have been mined to far better effect in other episodes and other seasons. When Randy finds out South Park Elementary is making school football “too safe”, he gets all sarcastic and starts suggesting …Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Cartman Finds Love”

Nichole and Cartman in SOUTH PARK - Season 16 - "Cartman Finds Love" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: April 25, 2012 The mid-season finale of SOUTH PARK is here, and while last year set the bar high for a mid-season closer (the brilliant “You’re Getting Old”), this year ends on a soft note with an okay, but unspectacular Cartman-centric episode “Cartman Finds Love.” First off, when you hear the title, you think, finally, someone is going to tame Cartman – but that’s not the case. It’s just another episode where Cartman falls in love with himself. When the new black girl Nichole arrives in …Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining”

Kyle in SOUTH PARK - Season 16 - "I Should Never Have Gone Ziplining" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: April 18, 2012 SOUTH PARK has been so weird and crazy during Season 16, it’s hard what to make of it week to week. Sometimes it’s really funny, other times it’s been getting really weird. And this week, it goes off-the-rails weird – so much so that even though it wasn’t that funny, it still was more interesting than just about anything else on TV this week. “I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining” is set up like one of those reality shows about horrible things happening …Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Butterballs”

Mr. Mackey in SOUTH PARK - Season 16 - "Butterballs" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: April 11, 2012 Bouncing back from last week’s uneven “Jewpacabra,” SOUTH PARK kicks butt with “Butterballs”, a hilarious take on school bullying and the media’s exploitation of it. Some of this is directly tied to the documentary BULLY which just hit theaters and focuses on actual bullying happening in our public schools. One of the most obvious things creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone bring up with this episode is that by making a film about bullying and then putting the bullied kid as the face …Read On »
