Voices: Trey Parker, Matt Stone Writer-Director: Trey Parker Distributor: Paramount Home Entertainment Suggested Retail Price: $39.98 As SOUTH PARK kicks off its 18th season, it’s time to re-evaluate last year’s 10-episode run which resulted in the epic “Black Friday” trilogy. Last year was the first time SOUTH PARK didn’t have two seven-episode runs (one in the Spring, one in the Fall). Instead, everything was stockpiled in the fall and with four less episodes to boot. It didn’t affect the quality of the show, and if anything, it strengthened the laser focus of the show particularly when they produced the epic […]Read On »

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: December 12, 2013 After the three-park SOUTH PARK epic that took on Black Friday, GAME OF THRONES and the videogame console wars between PS4 and XBOX ONE, the series gets back to basics with a great season finale “The Hobbit.” When SOUTH PARK does satire right, it’s dead on and this episode tackles the poor role models young girls have from the likes of heavily Photoshopped celebrities like Kim Kardashian. It all starts when cheerleader Wendy tries to give heavy-set and ugly Lisa Berger a pep […]Read On »

TV Review: GLEE – Season 4 – “All or Nothing” – Season Finale

Stars: Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Jane Lynch, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Chord Overstreet, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, Mark Salling, Harry Shum Jr., Jenna Ushkowitz Writer: Ian Brennan Director: Bradley Buecker Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: May 9, 2013 Well, that was a big pile of nothing. The GLEE Season 4 finale “All or Nothing” is about as anti-climactic as they come. It feels like a series finale after everyone involved with the show has given up, not a show with two more seasons committed to it. The joyous, cool and innovative GLEE, […]Read On »

TV Review: GLEE – Season 4 – “Wonder-ful”

Stars: Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Jane Lynch, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Chord Overstreet, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, Mark Salling, Harry Shum Jr., Jenna Ushkowitz Writer: Brad Falchuk Director: Wendey Stanzler Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: May 2, 2013 GLEE continues its downward spiral into the Season 4 abyss with another theme week – Steve Wonder. With Rachel (Lea Michele) getting her Broadway callback for FUNNY GIRL and Mr. Schue (Matthew Morrison) getting a thank you call from Rachel for all he did for her, the theme is fitting. It’s about embracing everything […]Read On »

TV Review: GLEE – Season 4 – “Sweet Dreams”

Stars: Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Jane Lynch, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Chord Overstreet, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, Mark Salling, Harry Shum Jr., Jenna Ushkowitz Writer: Ross Maxwell Director: Elodie Keene Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: April 18, 2013 After last week’s devastatingly tasteless and offensive “Shooting Star” episode which dealt with the issue of a school shooting (without having anyone do any shooting, a gun merely went off), GLEE tries to get back on track with “Sweet Dreams” with mixed results. The problem is, once you go down a dark road like […]Read On »

Stars: Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Jane Lynch, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Chord Overstreet, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, Mark Salling, Harry Shum Jr., Jenna Ushkowitz, Whoopi Goldberg, Kate Hudson Writer: Matthew Hodgson Director: Bradley Buecker Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: April 11, 2013 I wasn’t sure what to think when GLEE decided to tackle school violence and kids bringing guns to school. It’s a very tricky topic, if handled poorly could totally fail miserably. If handled properly, it might shine some light on recent events that has been all over the news in […]Read On »

TV Review: GLEE – Season 4 – “Guilty Pleasures”

Darren Criss and Chord Overstreet perform WHAM in GLEE - Season 4 - "Guilty Pleasures" | ©2013 Fox/Adam Rose

  Writer: Russel Friend & Garrett Lerner Director: Eric Stoltz Network: Fox, airs Thursdays Original Telecast: March 24, 2013 Let’s just face it – GLEE is running on fumes. Story has become secondary, almost arbitrary and now the show feels like it only exists to sell songs and CDs. The storylines have become ridiculous during the second half of the season, the transition with the graduating glass (most of them conveniently enough in New York) and the remaining McKinley High students has been awkward and the characters continue to do things that make no sense whatsoever (Finn kissing Emma, huh?).

Once audiences warmed to the new characters and dynamics at McKinley, it’s become very difficult to even care about Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) as they’re living out their […]Read On »

There are some clues, particularly with Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) there, and the hint […]Read On »

After Marley (Melissa Benoist) passed out during Sectionals because of her eating disorder, New Directions lost to the Warblers. They’re done for. No more competition for the Glee club this year. They screwed up […]Read On »
