Rating: PG Stars (voices): Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker Writers: Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio Directors: Kyle Balda & Pierre Coffin, co-director, Eric Guillon Distributor: Universal Release Date: June 30, 2017  In DESPICABLE ME 3, there’s a moment when Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) mutters, “I miss the Minions.” Well, yes. So likely will most of the audience. Although the little yellow hench-beings are heavily promoted in the DESPICABLE ME 3 trailers, they are largely missing from this third entry in the animated series. In the original 2010 DESPICABLE ME, Gru was a professional super-villain, supported by his mad […]Read On »

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

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 »

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: September 25, 2013 It used to be SOUTH PARK did a full season split into two seven-episode chunks throughout the year.

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.

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 »

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”

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 »
