Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: November 6, 2013 The seventeenth season of SOUTH PARK is about half way through its run, but the episodes, like usual, have been wildly uneven. The latest, “Ginger Cow”, is hands down the worst this year. Playing into the notion of peace in the Middle East and Cartman creating chaos once again, it’s short on laughs and long in execution. The episode begins when Cartman claims he saw a “Ginger Cow” in the pasture – a cow painted red and given a red wig. Apparently, this […]Read On »
