Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 26, 2011 It was a given that at some point Trey Parker and Matt Stone were going to tackle their Broadway experience with BOOK OF MORMON on SOUTH PARK. The question was “when” and “how?” The wait is finally over with “Broadway Bro Down”, the funniest episode since the midseason finale “You’re Getting Old.” This is classic SOUTH PARK where all the elements smash into each other head on and actually have a couple of very satisfying pay-offs. It all starts when Randy Marsh is […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 15 – “Bass to Mouth”

Getting bent out of shape because SOUTH PARK does an utterly tasteless episode is similar to being outraged that Lindsay Lohan did something stupid again to land her in jail. They do that they do. It is what it is. We’re all the better for it. In SOUTH PARK’s case, tasteless is their forte – and most of the time it works brilliantly. Where the big problems come from is when the show simply misses the mark in its tastelessness and doesn’t provide enough funny to back it up. That’s the sad truth of “Bass to Mouth” which tackles so […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 15 – “The Last of the Meheecans”

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 12, 2011 With “The Last of the Meheecans”, SOUTH PARK provides a pretty funny episode that takes on Border patrol agents, illegal immigrants sneaking into this county and Cartman once again going to extremes to win at something. While the humor here is not totally laugh out loud, it’s a solid run on spoofing America’s current problem with illegal immigrants sneaking into the U.S.A. The episode starts with the South Park kids playing a little game of Border Patrol Agents and Meheecans (I guess cowboys […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 15 – “Ass Burgers”

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 5, 2011 June’s mid-season finale of SOUTH PARK  ended on the brilliant “You’re Getting Old” episode where Stan realized that by turning ten, the world had literally turned to crap and he had become a miserable cynic. The episode ended with his parents getting a divorce and Stan moping around town as the Stevie Nicks song “Landslide” played. It was a brilliant end to an uneven Season 15, and as the second half of SOUTH PARK returns with “Ass Burgers,” we get the pay-off that […]Read On »

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 »

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 »
