TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Insecurity”

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 10, 2012 Sadly SOUTH PARK seems to be struggling during the latter half of Season 16. Joining the awful “Sarastaball” is the latest episode “Insecurity” – a painfully unfunny exercise in randomness. I sense Trey Parker and Matt Stone are trying for some commentary on how fearful the nation has become since the Colorado shootings at THE DARK KNIGHT RISES screening, but it just doesn’t really work. Things kick off when Ike sees a UPS man having sex with his mom (what he doesn’t know […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Raising the Bar”

Cartman finds another loophole in society in SOUTH PARK - Seaosn 16 - "Raising the Bar" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 4, 2012 Thank you SOUTH PARK. After an awful return for the second half of Season 16 last week with “Sarcastaball,” the series is back on track with a hilarious and very meta episode called “Raising the Bar.” The episode concerns itself with society lowering the bar and standards when it comes to overweight people and watching trashy shows like HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO. When Cartman accepts he’s fat, he loves that he can now ride around on his own motorized scooter – and […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Sarcastaball” – Premiere

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: September 26, 2012 SOUTH PARK is back for the second half of Season 16, but sadly “Sarcastaball” is one of the weakest episodes of the season by far. Taking on the current topical subject of the NFL and the replacement referees that have been destroying the game, SOUTH PARK touches on things that have been mined to far better effect in other episodes and other seasons. When Randy finds out South Park Elementary is making school football “too safe”, he gets all sarcastic and starts suggesting […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Cartman Finds Love”

Nichole and Cartman in SOUTH PARK - Season 16 - "Cartman Finds Love" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: April 25, 2012 The mid-season finale of SOUTH PARK is here, and while last year set the bar high for a mid-season closer (the brilliant “You’re Getting Old”), this year ends on a soft note with an okay, but unspectacular Cartman-centric episode “Cartman Finds Love.” First off, when you hear the title, you think, finally, someone is going to tame Cartman – but that’s not the case. It’s just another episode where Cartman falls in love with himself. When the new black girl Nichole arrives in […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining”

Kyle in SOUTH PARK - Season 16 - "I Should Never Have Gone Ziplining" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: April 18, 2012 SOUTH PARK has been so weird and crazy during Season 16, it’s hard what to make of it week to week. Sometimes it’s really funny, other times it’s been getting really weird. And this week, it goes off-the-rails weird – so much so that even though it wasn’t that funny, it still was more interesting than just about anything else on TV this week. “I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining” is set up like one of those reality shows about horrible things happening […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Butterballs”

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: April 11, 2012 Bouncing back from last week’s uneven “Jewpacabra,” SOUTH PARK kicks butt with “Butterballs”, a hilarious take on school bullying and the media’s exploitation of it. Some of this is directly tied to the documentary BULLY which just hit theaters and focuses on actual bullying happening in our public schools. One of the most obvious things creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone bring up with this episode is that by making a film about bullying and then putting the bullied kid as the face […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Jewpacabra”

Cartman in SOUTH PARK - Season 16 - "Jewpacabra" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: April 4, 2012 It figures SOUTH PARK would eventually deliver a clunker at some point during Season 16 and that honor goes to the ambitious, promising, but ultimately flat “Jewpacabra.” This will be known as the episode where Cartman finally becomes a Jew and understands Kyle’s pain, but a promising premise ultimately gets undermined by a lack of focus. In what starts off as another way for Cartman to ruin a holiday (namely Passover and Easter), Cartman invents the legend of the “Jewpacabra.” It’s under the […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Faith Hilling”

Cartman, Butters, Kenny and their classmates in SOUTH PARK - Season 16 - "Faith Hilling" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: March 29, 2012 Yes, it’s too early in the Season 16 run of SOUTH PARK, but I have to admit, it’s going to be hard for creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone to top the episode “Faith Hilling.” I’ll go on record as saying this could very well be the best episode of the new season, or at least may end the funniest. It’s jam packed with tons of satirical targets, but deals primarily with how fast memes spread in society since the advent of the […]Read On »

Movie Review: THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN

THE ADVENTURES OF TIN TIN movie poster | ©2011 Paramount Pictures

Rating: PG Stars (motion-capture): Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost Writers: Steven Moffat and Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish, based on the comic book series by Herge Director: Steven Spielberg Distributors: Paramount/Columbia Release Date: December 21, 2011 THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN is a curious sort of film. Based on the comic book series by the Belgian writer/artist Herge (real name Georges Prosper Remi, 1907-1983), the motion-capture adventure gives dimensionality to the look of the original artwork, but relies on a kind of Boy’s Own Adventure sensibility that seems a little thin by contemporary standards. Director Steven […]Read On »
