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.

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 17 – “Ginger Cow”

Cartman and Kyle in SOUTH PARK - Season 17 - "Ginger Cow" | ©2013 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: November 6, 2013 The seventeenth season of SOUTH PARK is about half way through its run, but the episodes, like usual, have been wildly uneven. The latest, “Ginger Cow”, is hands down the worst this year. Playing into the notion of peace in the Middle East and Cartman creating chaos once again, it’s short on laughs and long in execution. The episode begins when Cartman claims he saw a “Ginger Cow” in the pasture – a cow painted red and given a red wig. Apparently, this […]Read On »

Other changes on the horizon include more writers than before including former SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE star Bill Hader who has joined the show full-time after consulting on the show for years. So what does this mean for the Season 17 Premiere of SOUTH PARK? Not much, it still […]Read On »
