Breaking News: SOUTH PARK isn’t over according to Trey Parker

Many SOUTH PARK fans were a bit perplexed and concerned by Season 15’s spring finale “You’re Getting Old” which featured Stan turning into a “cynical ***hole” on his tenth birthday and ending with the divorce of his parents. Many thought this was the end of SOUTH PARK as we know it – and considering creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone were Broadway sensations with BOOK OF MORMON (and took home a slew of Tony’s last week too), there could have been some truth to this. However, not only did both Parker and Stone thank SOUTH PARK fans upon accepting their […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 15 – “You’re Getting Old”

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: June 8, 2011 Was it me or were Trey Parker and Matt Stone talking directly to all the fans who have complained what an uneven season of SOUTH PARK it’s been with the mid-season finale “You’re Getting Older.” Or maybe Parker and Stone were expressing their own frustration with doing the same shtick week after week for fifteen seasons? They have a Broadway hit now with BOOK OF MORMON – who needs SOUTH PARK? Well, the fans do, for better and for worse and were rewarded […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 15 – “City Sushi”

Butters in SOUTH PARK - Season 15 - "City Sushi" | ©2011 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: June 1, 2011 Yes! SOUTH PARK finally emerges from its slump with the very funny Butters-centric episode “City Sushi.” After last week’s dreadful “Crack Baby Athletics Association”, the series finds a way to redeem itself in a big way putting the focus on Butters which always seems to provide ample laughs. Butters is one of the few innocent characters in the city of SOUTH PARK, so when he gets involved in strange predicaments (the pimp episode anyone?), it usually provides something refreshingly different. This time, Butters […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 15 – “Crack Baby Athletic Association”

Cartman and Kyle in SOUTH PARK - Season 15 - "Crack Baby Athetic Association" | ©2011 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: May 25, 2011 I’m starting to feel really guilty for ripping into SOUTH PARK so much. So far, Season 15 has been wildly uneven and after last week’s comeback episode “T.M.I.”, this week’s “Crack Baby Athletic Association” sends the show right back into the crapper again. After a brilliantly funny opening gag parodying those incredibly depressing Sarah McLachlan animal shelter commercials (substitute crack babies for animals), the episode never really comes together and then ends up becoming more about Slash as a surrogate Santa (more on […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 15 – “T.M.I.”

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: May 18, 2011 Last week I was equally praised and crucified by readers for my scathing review of the SOUTH PARK episode “Royal Pudding”. It was a horrible mess with a funny gags and not much else. Sorry. Thankfully, this week’s episode “T.M.I.” is a much better effort (still not perfect, but good), keeping things simple and bringing the inspired lunacy that makes SOUTH PARK so great. When the South Park faculty decides to post how much each student has grown in size during the year, […]Read On »

SOUTH PARK - Season 15 - "Royal Pudding" | ©2011 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: May 11, 2011 I’m all for SOUTH PARK when it likes to mix things up and spotlight secondary characters. However, when it’s done as poorly as “Royal Pudding,” it makes you wonder what creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone were thinking. With last week’s “Funnybot” being a bit of a mess, “Royal Pudding” fully commits to being an outright disaster by essentially being a one-note SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE skit that drags on for thirty minutes. The potential for humor is here – essentially a spoof of […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 15 – “Funnybot”

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: May 4, 2011 Every once and awhile, SOUTH PARK will tackle a topic that just doesn’t quite hit the mark and “Funnybot” is one of them. When the Jimmy and the special education class put on the 1st Annual Comedy Awards, trouble erupts when Germany is named the least funny people. They get so incensed, they build a robot that tells vulgar jokes to prove the world wrong. Of course, the robot is terrible, but everyone loves him anyway, until it decides the biggest joke on […]Read On »

SOUTH PARK - The Complete Fourteenth Season | ©2011 Paramount Home Entertainment

Voices: Trey Parker, Matt Stone Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Distributor: Paramount Home Entertainment Suggested Retail Price: $57.99 Not only did SOUTH PARK kick off its 15th season on Comedy Central last week, but SOUTH PARK: THE COMPLETE FOURTEENTH SEASON hit DVD and Blu-ray corralling all 14 episodes of another solid (and controversial) season of animated hilarity. The series is set in South Park, CO and follows the foul-mouthed misadventures of Cartman, Kyle, Stan and Kenny. The genius in the show has been how creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have continually found a way to stay relevant and […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 15 – “HUMANCENTiPAD” – Season Premiere

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: April 27, 2011 It’s impossible to know where SOUTH PARK creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are going to go next. Each half season can go from brilliant to uninspired within a week’s time, but the joy of the show is the surprise and anticipation of what they’re going to skewer and spoof next. With their Season 15 premiere (yes, Season 15), they hijack the premise from the cult horror movie THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE and graft it on to the current technological innovations that Steve Jobs […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 14 – “Crème Fraiche”

© 2010 Comedy Central | SOUTH PARK - Season 14 - "Creme Fraiche"

As Season 14 of SOUTH PARK comes to a close with “Creme Fraiche,” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone tackle two disparate topics – food porn and the Shake Weights phenomenon. When Stan’s dad Randy begins to obsess about cooking shows (staying up late and masturbating to them), his wife Sharon starts to block the programs on their TV. But Stan is addicted, which soon leads him to the 1-800 hotline for the Food Network (think phone sex, but about food) and eventually he’s the new cafeteria chef at Stan’s school. Suffice to say, his food choices are way too […]Read On »
