Voices: Trey Parker, Matt Stone Writer-Director: Trey Parker Original Telecast: October 9, 2014 Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesdays As I suspected last week, SOUTH PARK is experimenting with something they haven’t done before (except for their clear cut multi-parters) – they are establishing continuity throughout Season 18. Usually, the show is very willy nilly when it comes to its weekly scenarios. Something happens one week, next week continuity has completely changed and it’s a whole other story with little reference to what has come before. However, this year, it’s all changed. The Season Premiere ramifications led into “Gluten Free Ebola” […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: SOUTH PARK – THE COMPLETE SEVENTEENTH SEASON

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 »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 18 – “Gluten Free Ebola”

Voices: Trey Parker, Matt Stone Writer-Director: Trey Parker Original Telecast: October 1, 2014 Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesdays SOUTH PARK has a long history of having on and off weeks. Some times it’s just a matter of opinion – one person’s dislike is another person’s like. So while I absolutely loved the Season 18 debut “Go Fund Yourself,” I wasn’t too fond of this week’s uneven follow-up “Gluten Free Ebola.” While there was an occasional chuckle (the sight gag of a penis exploding out of someone’s pants and flying in the air because of eating Gluten was by far the […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 18 – “Go Fund Yourself” – Season Premiere

Stars (Voices): Trey Parker, Matt Stone Writer-Director: Trey Parker Original Telecast: September 24, 2014 Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesdays It’s been a very long wait, but SOUTH PARK is back for Season 18 and boy were Trey Parker and Matt Stone sorely needed. Their wit and knack for social satire is hard to live without for almost a full year (the series used get be split into two-seven episode seasons – one in the Spring, one in the Fall), but now it’s all in one big chunk and only ten episodes. However, when they hit it out of the so-called […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 17 – “The Hobbit” – Season Finale

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 »

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: November 13, 2013 After last week’s dreadful “Ginger Cow” episode, SOUTH PARK bounces back with what may very well be their next multi-episode epic currently dubbed “Black Friday.” Paying homage to GAME OF THRONES, the story follows Cartman and his friends rallying together to be the first inside the mall stores on Black Friday. The first 20 people inside, get 80 percent off of anything, which means they can be the first to get the new next gen gaming console – an Xbox One or Playstation […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Obama Wins!” – Season Finale

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 »

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 »

When Stan’s dad Randy comes home and says the family is going to be rich because he […]Read On »

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 »
