Title: South Park
Post by: gammer on February 06, 2007, 10:17:33 AM
So I've never seen this show before, is it dirty or potty mouthed? (just kidding).

Lets hear your comments on this great cartoon...

As we've talked about in the Simpsons thread, that show is on the decline. Whereas, I would say South Park is 'peaking' right about now...

I love South Park.  I kind of grew tired of it during season 2, and stopped watching for a while, and came back around the fifth season, and from that point on, I've been hooked.  Actually, when I saw the movie, I was hooked.  But I didn't really get back into the show until the fifth season.  I have all the seasons on DVD now, and it's just great.  I would say that it peaked with "Woodland Critter Christmas" though.  It's not on the decline for me so much as just kind of plateaued.  You just can't top mountain lion cubs performing an abortion on Kyle, in my opinion.

Very true. They are satirists in the purest sense. :^)

I've noticed that there are two sides to South Park. There are episodes that seem to focus on being weird (Crab People are responsible for Queer Eye for the Straight Guy!), and those that focus on being topical (The famous Scientology episode). There's always a little of both in every episode, but usually one is favored over the other. I think I prefer it when they're just being weird. I think my favorite episode was the one with Cartman's hand-puppet of Jennifer Lopez. :^)

I like South Park too.  If you get around all the language and dirty Chef Songs, it's a really well written show. . . wait, that'd leave 2 lines!  I actually love Chef and I haven't watched since he left.

Seriously though, if you can past all of that and give it a chance, I think it's a pretty good show.  I think you have to be in the mood for it though.  What gets me is the millions of moronic kids who watch it and don't get how political it is.

Besides, I love the movie soundtrack!  I have quite a collection of Chef Songs too.  "A prostitute is a woman who loves you no matter who you are."  :D

"This could be the end of the world.....of warcraft." this was defenitly one of my favorite episodes. Mind you I rarly watch it cause I often find it incredibly dumb at times. But like any show, it has its moments and it's those moments you watch a show.

I really love the show, especially when it truly has something insightful yet incredibly silly to say about politics or religion.
Also, I love how they poked fun at John Edwards(The biggest douche in the universe), Jar Jar(Jakovasauraus), Spielberg and Lucases habit of re-releasing and ruining their classic films(Free Hat), Michael Jackson(The Jeffersons), Satan-Worshipping Animals(Woodland Critter Christmas), Old people driving(Grey Dawn) Mormons(All about the Mormons), Scientology(Trapped in the closet), Mel Gibson(Passion of the Jew) and poking fun at presidential elections(Douche and Turd). There are times when the show really is just too gross and horrid, like in the episode Proper Condom Use or The simpsons already did it. Yeah, sometimes the show can be pretty nasty with the subject matter. That aside however it's a very funny show because the main characters have such great chemistry and they get such crazy ideas or they get too intensely serious about something that it becomes silly... like World of Warcraft. Also the characters purposely go over the top and overreact and don't think nothing of it... they just play it straight ALL the time, which is hilarious to me. The kids act like kids a lot of the time... but characters like Stan and Kyle can be very witty, smart and intelligent, which is great. It is very refreshing to see a show where the main characters are usually pretty smart, even for kids. The best part though is that the ending of every episode is almost always unpredictable unless you've seen it before.

I will also say that it was great to finally see Science-worshipping Sea Otters taken down a peg or two. 

I love the episodes where it's clear that Trey and Matt just get an insane idea and throw it into the show.  Like, crab people, or Lemmiwinks, or making Moses the Master Control Program from Tron.

I just wish Comedy Central had not caved with the whole "showing Muhammed" thing. That would have been a new milestone in free speech. I wonder if the uncensored version's in the DVD release...

They decided not to show their version of the prophet Muhammed (during a Family Guy spoof) because of the riots in Europe, caused by those cartoons a while back. They caved to pressure that they would incite MORE riots by showing him on South Park, a show that has already shown him along with Jesus and Buddha (I think - the Super Friends episode, been a while since I've seen it). 

Title: Re: South Park

Right, Super Best Friends. I knew I was missing a word.

I mentioned them showing him already, and I don't mean THAT's the milestone. I mean it would've been a milestone because they would've stood up for the right to show what they wanted to show, free speech in a time of outside pressure. Just like they caved about the virgin mary who shat blood, they got pressure from the Catholic church and so the episode got pulled from repeats.

It's funny how, satire is fine until it's YOUR group that's being lampooned. People need to lighten up already.
Title: Re: South Park

   Yeah. I've never known of any Buddists or Christians to threaten riots when poked fun at by that show, and yet Comedy Central loses its nerve with Muslims.

  Didn't they limit how often they were repeating the Tom Cruise ep too, or am I not remembering right? I know Isaac Hayes left the show when they used the ep to attack Scientology.

NOTE: I originally posted this in the 'Family Guy' thread, but I thought I'd move it here.

Now if you want to see something MUCH funnier... i strongly suggest latching onto south park, for the thinly veiled politcal commentary is hilarious, as is the thinly veiled jabs at religeon, PETA, video games, etc, etc.

"Thinly veiled"? Whenever South Park tries to do political/social commentary, it's painful. It's like trying to watch a five-year-old try to tell a joke...badly.

"Okay, so I penguin and a rabbi walk into a bar and...wait, a priest, a rabbi, a penguin, and...a rabbit, a penguin...no, let me start over again..."

Or how about the punch line?

"...and the old man in the hospital bed says 'I'll have the soup.' Get it? 'Cause, no, yeah, you got..."

Matt Stone and Trey Parker are in direct competition with the idiots that wrote Epic Movie for least funny comedy team with IQ levels below 30. They've always sucked, and always will suck.

They're still rerunning it -- it was on last week. Nothing has stopped them. It's never been 'banned'. South Park fans take these things way out of hand, especially since it's such a crappy attempt to attack a crappy "religion." If it was any good, there would be something to complain about, but it's the same ol' South Park shit.

Frank Zappa gave the perfect satirization of the "Church" of Scientology many years ago:

"WELCOME TO THE FIRST CHURCH OF APPLIANTOLOGY! THE WHITE ZONE IS FOR LOADING AND UNLOADING!" (http://www.science.uva.nl/~robbert/zappa/albums/Joe_s_Garage/10.html)

Quote
And a cheerful group of
Appliantologists dance
into the room wearing
aluminum foil lab smocks,
lock arms in a circle
around JOE, making sure
he pays in full, all the
while singing with L. RON
as he delivers his final
instructions...

South Park is just some more of the slime comin' out of yer TV set...

Quote
You will obey me while I lead you
And eat the garbage that I feed you
Until the day that we don't need you
Don't go for help . . . no one will heed you
Your mind is totally controlled
It has been stuffed into my mold
And you will do as you are told
Until the rights to you are sold

That's right, folks . . .
Don't touch that dial!

Wow. I don't think anyone said that episode was banned. For someone with such a hostile attitude, it helps to read the post carefully before posting an angry comment. I don't fault you for that, at least you put "religion" in quotes. I don't feel they necessarily "attacked" scientology but more or less mocked it, in the satirical way they always do. If that's not what you like, but fine. But nothing bothers me more than someone who just states their opinion without backing it up.

It was a crappy attempt at skewing scientology. Fine. But why? What about the way they handled Catholics, and Atheists, NAMBLA, or Paris Hilton? Personally I think the show is one of the few great satires left. Everything is sanitized for your protection (thanks Bill Maher!) these days, I enjoy the fact that they are out to offend YOU, and they don't care who gets pissed. Comedy Central does, of course... unfortunately...

Well, I disagree with you there, but to each their own. They are by no means subtle, which I enjoy. But I think satire is pretty wide ranging. If you pigeon-hole the word "satire" into something you might see on SNL, or MadTV, or the New Yorker... well that's like saying all beef is the same. You can have the filet mignon, or the by-product mashup of miscellaneous meat at your local McD's.

From dictionary.com - the FIRST definition of "satire" is:
the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.

Sounds a lot like South Park to me. What does satire mean to you? (This goes for everyone I guess).
Title: Re: South Park
Post by: Pak-Man on February 06, 2007, 04:14:15 PM
That sounds about right. Technically, Satire doesn't even need to be funny (Although it often is). A Modest Proposal isn't meant to be funny (It CAN be in the right light...) but it gets its point across nicely. :^)

I personally love this show more and more each time I see it.  It's episodes like the one with the 9/11 conspiracy that make me truly appreciate Matt and Trey's talent.  They can take some serious and go totally overboard with a funny but intense storyline.  The writers never cease to amaze me with how far they can take something, and I respect that talent.  I want to know what there is about episodes like the "Scientology" episode that make it a crappy attempt at satire.  I find it hilarious and understand exactly what they're trying to say.  To me, that's satire.  I'm not trying to attack posts here, just wanting some elaboration on why people think their satires are "crappy"
Title: Re: South Park

The thing with southpark is this. I would call them satire, but that in no way makes anything they intellectual.  Ive never understood exactly why people like southpark so much.  They get away with saying things that would get people in a lot of trouble on the street.  Its not the message its the delivery.  Can some explain to me why the offensive potty language and adult situations add to to this supposed intellectual level?

the way i see it is this, a modest proposal had impact on its society and was rememborable.  However if he called the nobility a bunch of fucktards it probably would have been forgetable.

Ah, but he, and many satirists before him, DID! They may not have used that exact phrasing, but Satirists did not care who they offended.

Satire is all about pointing at the white elephant in the room. Society has a tendancy to look the other way at certain aspects of society. There is much unpleasantness in the world and it's unhealthy not to talk about it. It is the job, then, of the satirist to force society to look at what they don't want to look at, and if that means flinging some harsh terminology at them to get their attention, then so be it.

South Park, contrary to popular belief, does not randomly swear. In every instance I've seen, the swearing is well placed and intended to prove a point. The South Park Movie is a brilliant commentary on how society is more offended by swear words than violent and disturbing behavior, and the message is one that could only be brought about by showing the results of swearing vs. the results of violent and disturbing behavior. If the movie had cleaned up its language, it couldn't have carried across its point. The point isn't to offend. The point is to make you think about why you're being offended. Why is it that we get so riled up when we hear the F word, but we're OK with hearing its analog, "Sex?"
Satire never promises to be a fun ride. Often, South Park needs to drag you through the detritis and scatalogical humor to get you to see what it wants you to look at, and this is the way satire has always been.

I don't think anyone is ranking South Park with the best political satire of the ages.  I don't think anyone would claim South Park is deeply intellectual and symbolic.  Just because it's satire doesn't mean we should compare it to Candide.

What's wrong with being like a 5 year old ever now and then?  I don't see anything wrong with using a bit of primal, immature rage against bureaucracy every now and again.  South Park isn't rocket science.  It is topical.  It's fun.  It is sometimes immature.  Don't you just want to yell "fuck you!" at Tom Cruise every now and then? I do!  I think South Park answers that little iconoclast in all of us.

The saddest part about South Park is that it and the daily show are about where are kids are getting their information from. 

I should have read Pak's post, ok maybe some WOULD compare!  However, I do think South Park can be a little immature and stupid at times.  I don't think they're all that deep.  Deeper than what most of us are used to these I guess.  Deeper than "King of Queens" and "Friends."

They already did several times in this thread.  its the only reason i brought it up. 


The word sex doesnt offend me anymore than the word fuck does.  Ive seen lots of episodes that had tons off the cuff jokes that were there that had little to do with that days "moral".  Please explain the deep satirical value of any of the chefs songs.  you can start with black salty balls and move on to his eplanation of a prostitute. 

Edit: So all im saying is that while they do have satire it still has lots of offensive stuff that has little to do with a message.  As such i think better satire can do so without being overt  coughcoughcolbertcoughcough

I mentioned them showing him already, and I don't mean THAT's the milestone. I mean it would've been a milestone because they would've stood up for the right to show what they wanted to show, free speech in a time of outside pressure. Just like they caved about the virgin mary who shat blood, they got pressure from the Catholic church and so the episode got pulled from repeats.

Canada's Comedy Network shows the current South Park eps, but they are 6 months behind. Even though they (Comedy Channel) weren't going to show repeats of this ep and Comedy Network knew this, they went ahead and aired it in Canada.

I'm not sure what time SP is shown in the US, but on the Comedy Network its only aired at 12:30am and 3:30am.

Also, with episode names like Mr Garrison's Fancy new vagina and Miss Teacher bangs a boy, they general don't advertise the ep name or they abbreviate it big time in the tv guide.

South Park is great. Love how they make the shows so current, really sets the bar high for shows like family guy (like are they going to respond to "cartoon wars"?), anyway the show is usually fantastic and every once in awhile their are bad taste jokes that I don't like; however their are jokes that others might consider bad taste (someone mentioned the hilarious "Christmas critters episode") that I laugh at... It's a give and take, but mostly south park gives :)

also, Swift is a cool dude, I especially like the essay he wrote about eating the poor... awesome, the comparison to south park is well deserved.

youll never get a reason out of isaac (no offense man) hell just say the whole thing is wrong. 

The thing with southpark is this. I would call them satire, but that in no way makes anything they intellectual.  Ive never understood exactly why people like southpark so much.  They get away with saying things that would get people in a lot of trouble on the street.  Its not the message its the delivery.  Can some explain to me why the offensive potty language and adult situations add to to this supposed intellectual level?

the way i see it is this, a modest proposal had impact on its society and was rememborable.  However if he called the nobility a bunch of fucktards it probably would have been forgetable. 

Candide southpark isnt.

You're wrong. "Trapped In The Closet" IS Matt and Trey's Candide. They take the actual tenets of the very religion they're mocking (which Scientology doesn't even tell its members until they've been in a few years), and hold them up for the ridicule and derision they so richly deserve. The fact that they use animated eight-year-olds (who, for my money, behave more like actual eight-year-olds than any I've ever seen anywhere else on television) doesn't make it any less a cultural milestone. If anything, using child characters increases its impact, as if to say, "Hey, if these kids can clearly see what a load of crap this is..."

     South Park reruns are on at 8:30 and 9:00 CST some nights on Comedy Central.  The syndicated reruns are on a local station for a full hour at midnight.   I'm sure that some episodes are not included in the syndication package, but don't know which ones they would be.  Comedy Central did rerun "Trapped in the Closet" within the last week.  I liked the way it began as a parody of R.Kelly's multi-part music video but became more of the commentary of what Scientologists supposedly base their belief system around and only incidentally introduced the implication of Cruise's sexual preferences mid-way in the episode.  The jokes ran into the credits with the challenge to sue the "Smiths."
    As someone previously stated, the system they have that allows them to rush out topical stories is unprecedented in toons.  I loved the political statements melded to the old Warner Bros. cartoon stylings in  eps like "Osama ben Laden has Farty Pants."
    Personally, I think Zappa would be a South Park fan, if he was still alive.

That was a great moment in that episode where Cartman holds up a sign with a picture of a rooster
and a picture of a lollipop beside it(referring to Osama Bin Laden)...you figure it out ;D
Did anyone ever see Cartoon wars parts 1 and 2? Cartman fights to get Family guy cancelled... and of
course cartman is a little jerk all the time, but South park makes some very valid and good points as
to why family guy is not that funny of a show. However, Kyle fights against cartman since he is a fan
of family guy. That's what I appreciate about South Park is they always try to have a balanced viewpoint,
despite the fact they are admittedly biased in one direction over another.

One thing Matt and Trey are very careful to do is not always simply put out there what they think about a particular issue; the "Go God Go" episodes come to mind.

Well I was comparing it more to Johnathon Swift's works, since Swift was never shy to throw around some scatalogical humor and dirty language, but Voltaire was also panned by the critics of his day for being completely irreverant about ideals and topics that were near and dear to the society at the time. Those who hated Voltaire did so because he tackled, without any tact, issues and ideals that nobody else wanted to examine and most people didn't think should be laughed at. The reason we can look at his works and see some class, but not see any looking at South Park is because the issues Voltaire was tackling aren't being held sacred anymore. Voltaire accomplished his work, but Trey and Matt have a long way to go with the issues they're dealing with. Since the issues are relevant to us, it's more shocking to watch them get torn down and studied and mocked.

I love when Sarcasm does this sort of Marklar.  ;D

From Wikipedia:
For some reason, the variety of meanings of marklar was no problem for the Marklars; just as humans are able to understand homophones based on context, the Marklars seemed to understand their language fine. This was demonstrated when the Marklar leader, Marklar, simply said, "Hey, Marklar," and one particular Marklar stepped out of the crowd, knowing somehow that he was the one being referenced.

Marklar is not used as a conjunction or article, nor is it normally used in the place of a pronoun, although pronouns may reference marklar. Unlike a pronoun, the referenced word need not appear in the same sentence, nor even ever have been used by the speaker at any time. The plural form is marklars.

also, as far as Zappa goes, he was taken to court in England for talking about sex and using profanity in his songs he was going to perform with the BBC orchestra or something.... and as far as quoting Zappa songs

Quote
His name is Stevie Vai,
And he's a crazy guy
Last November, I recall,
He needed a spanking

He decided then
A female specimen
Would be exciting for a night
To give him a spanking

Laurel was her name
She came to Notre Dame
He told me just the other night
He oughta be thanking
Her for the spanking

She was large and soft
And she beat him off
Made him drool upon his dork
And gave it a wanking
After the spanking

Hair brush!
Oh! What a hair brush!

Then did she exclaim:
"There's another game
That we can play with this device,
And then a banana!"

It was slightly green
Vapors in between
Rising up to fill the room
And COOK the banana

Later in the dawn,
Laurel carried on
Got right up and dressed herself and
Ate the bananap.

It also features the longest commentary Trey Parker and Matt Stone have done since the first season. They make it about 47 minutes through before they peter out, which is a major improvement over their five minute mini-commentaries on most episodes. They're down on themselves, but it's so fun to hear them talk, whether relevant or not, it's great they were pushed into doing this.

They do a bit about censoring their words for legal purposes, as apparently their Season One commentary was deemed too controversial. Here, the censorship becomes a bit. They set up the omissions where it's obvious they're not really saying anything, but they're suggesting that they would.

What they actually say is brilliant. There is a healthy amount of straight commentary discussing production problems and artistic inspirations for the episode. This still includes irreverence like comparing ball sucking to the structure of 24's cliffhangers. Their definition of new cliffhangers versus old is actually a very important modern artistic construct.

Of course they riff too. They go off on M. Night Shyamalan, and share some lines they'd written for the Christmas Critters that are even worse than what made it in, and so bad that they didn't even want to put them in this director's cut.

That right there is reason enough for me to buy this dvd.  I love their commentaries.  I have ten seasons worth all on my iPod.

I gotta say that SP is hands down my favorite show of all time.  I honestly don't think I'll see a better show, because in my opinion, it's perfect.  I've not once been offended by it (even when they go after my heritage/beliefs) and really don't know what the big deal is in the long run.  It's entertainment and it works.  I also like Family Guy, but I really don't think that it can hold a candle to SP in ways of humor and social relevance.  The way they called FG out in the Cartoon Wars episodes hit the nail on the head while also not being completely biased.

As far as the latest episode: I wasn't blown away but it will most definitely be one that I remember for the one-liners.  Oh, and especially since about a week before during a discussion with a friend about why Magic Johnson lived through HIV without it going to AIDS was that he was rich.

I went back to the theater the next day and watched it again. That was the only time and the only movie I have _ever_ done that for.

I don't want to give anything away for people who haven't seen it yet but Last nights episode was one of the best ever.

It is on my Top Ten episodes ever list.

It was very funny,shocking,and hart felt,and all with a point.

It did everything a South Park episode is supposed to do and then some.

Also it had one of the best endings of any tv episode ever.

9.0/10.

The only thing I don't like about South Park is when they do really terrible celebrity impressions. I know they warn you in the credits, but still. Takes me out of it when I have to believe some paper-cutout southern cartoon is Britney Spears. Of course once her head is gone and she's voiced by a man gargling, it's easy.

BRIDNEY WOWTCH!
Title: Re: South Park
Post by: Doctor Who? on March 21, 2008, 07:05:18 AM
I hate to disagree with you again but that is one of the things I love about South Park.

Whenever I watch a show like The Simpsons where they have the real person i always get the feeling that they are sucking up to them and pulling their punches to keep the person from walking out.

On South Park they can say anything about anyone since they don't rely on them for ratings.

Still i understand it took me a while to get use to the voices.

I can see how it would bother people but i think what they gain from doing something this way is more then what they lose.

I loved the episode and applaud them for making a point that needed to be made, and they even SUPPORTED Ms. Spears when it would have been so much easier (And kind of typical of them) to bash her while making their point.

I DID feel like they kind of forgot to make it funny in some parts. Poignant, yes. Just not their funniest episode. (Still liked it. :^))
Title: Re: South Park
Post by: Doctor Who? on March 21, 2008, 11:29:29 AM
Well there where at least four or five points i couldn't stop laughing at,but it takes all sorts.

This episode is what makes South park better then shows like Family Guy.. Family guy would have just had jokes about her having sex or being drunk,South park went after the press and that is something i don't think happens enough.

Can you imagine how much easier it would be for people like Britney Spears to get the help they need if they didn't have the press swarming them all the time.

It's a new site launched by Comedy Central that has full episodes from all seasons available to watch on demand, including the new ones.  I'm not sure on how many eps are available right now since it's still in Beta form but it works good so far.  Plus the two new episodes being up was nice since I missed this weeks on TV.

Have you checked Comedy Central's website, or better yet Comedy Network? I say Comedy Network because, even though the site sucks, they show the episodes uncut there just like on TV. I haven't had time to check either site to see if they have the newest episodes available, but I know you can watch full episodes now. Might be worth a look.

"I see that you're enticed by my daughters awesome rocking tits."

Best line ever from the best show ever.

Love how it was all done in tribute to the original "Heavy Metal" animated movie.  Especially since a new one was just announced to have three directors including David Fincher, and apparently he's over-looking the whole project.

Oh and the whole "Diary of Anne Frank" sub-plot was genius.  Especially since it's Cartman, the biggest anti-semite, who takes them in.  Oh what a paradox

"This must be settled at the Breastiary at Nippopolis!"

There's really not much to get other than the fact that there's a pretty heavy emphasis on tits in the film.  Of course South Park exploited it and makes it seem like that's what it's all about.  Never-the-less, you should check it out as it is a cult-classic and well done within the genre and when it was made.

It was a boob, and there were boobs on the end of their lances... the battle axe and broadsword also both had a pair on them. There were no penises anywhere.

My wife and I finally had a chance to watch this last night... highly amusing. Our favourite part was the cut to where Kenny and Kyle's dad were crawling around in the sandbox punching each other... THAT was priceless. :)

I'm trying to figure out if the internet stuff was just a little weak, or if they intentionally wrote it as if they were just using internet videos in lieu of writing, what with people just watching YouTube while the writer's strike was going on. Hmm. I don't know. They're tricksters, those Matts and Treys. It was a bit gratuitous and then killing them all was predictable, but was that part of the joke or just the low point of the episode? What do you, the viewer at home, think? The moral at the end was the best moral ever. Not enough Ike lines though.

Also, why is it snowing in South Park?

This episode was basically all about Internet bullshit if you really think about it (and by really I mean NOT really).  And how certain people exploit it for money.  The whole part where Butters sang "What what in the butt" was HILARIOUS and poignant.  Also the song in the beginning about Canada on strike was fucking funny as hell as well...theoretically.

Correction:

From the South Park FAQ (http://www.southparkstudios.com/fans/faq/archives.php?id=2221)

Quote
Tuesday, July 10, 2001

In the opening credits of the fourth grade years, what movie is the explosion clip taken from?
    I'm not sure. The clip comes from a stock footage house, so the title of the movie is unknown. In our stock footage agreement it's listed as "man flying through explosion." We received about 7 minutes of footage from that particular film. It was pretty hilarious, but for all the wrong reasons.

So, they're not sure either.

Yeah that and Bill Belichick.  I've been a Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, and Bruins fan since I was born being brought up in MA.  I don't mind SP taking a shot at Bill because everybody in the national media already has.  I'm biased but I don't think what he did would be considered "cheating", I mean OK, he video taped opponents defensive signals.  I'm sure plenty of coaches are guilty of the same thing but they don't have a whiny little bitch like Eric Mangini crying about it after getting his ass handed to him in week one of the season against his old boss and now bitter rival in the AFC East.  So call it cheating if you will but look at it this way as well:  Baseball coaches change their signals on a game to game basis and throw in signs that don't mean anything to throw off the opposing team.  Perhaps NFL coaches should get a clue and change up their shit if they think it's that big of a problem.

One of Cartman's lines in this ep. was something like "What happened when Beeelicheek told his team to stop cheating and win this one game for Beel?  They lost."  Hey, they had a hell of a season and broke all kinds of records but the Giants were simply the better team that day and deserve the win.  They did what we did to teams before in that they came from behind when it counted most and held us off during our final drive.  Sure I was pissed but as a Native of New England, the Mecca of sports, I've got plenty to be proud about as it is.

Sorry bout the rant, just had to comment on one of the topics of the episode.

Oh and best quote by Mr. Garrison at the end "Well you better get an AIDS test Johnson because you're wife's a dude, faggot!  I'm back! <mouse squeaks, he jumps air like any cheesy 80's movie and freeze frames>

Agreed!  The singing part was GOLD.  I thought the penis plot line was great and was necessary for upcoming episodes, one could assume, involving the newly be-penised Mr. Garrison.  There's a number of things they could do with him now that he's a "legit" man again.

True, but did you  think that all of that was going to happen to him before it actually did?  I highly doubt it.  They can come up with something even more ridiculous.  They gave Kyle a "Negroplasty" and made his dad into a hideous dolphin-man (or lawphin, and jewphin)  in the same episode.

The whole show seemed to be a setup for that one joke.  And their attempt to make fun of movies about the great depression just wasn't all that funny.  Seems whenever they focus more on the parents it's not that funny.

It was supposed to be a stretch so that the ridiculousness of comparing the Great Depression with not having internet could be expressed.  It's hyperbole.  That's what South Park is. 

Plus the Grapes of Wrath is about people who lost their dignity and self-reliance, not about them not having food.  People went from owning their own property and being kings of the prairie to being paupers and treated like the scum of the Earth.  Not having food was just another side-effect of destitution.

South Park makes me strangely homesick at times for my childhood in Denver. I have actually been to Casa Bonita (And it was as awesome to me at the time as it was to Cartman.)

I like how Franz's accent changed throughout the episode kind of like Hans ( maybe that's just the way I heard it though)

I was waiting for the "work is over" moment when the cops were putting Franz away, but I guess the "I learned something about 1864" was just as good

Well now that the first half of season 12 is done, what does everybody think of how's it's been thus far?  Personally I think that this is shaping up to be yet another amazing season.  The only episode that, to me, had the fewest laughs but was still funny in it's own right was the internet crashing one.  It had it's moments but they were few and far between.  Other than that, nothing but more praise for Matt and Trey from me once again.

CONTINUITY GOOF, the guy they shot started saying the number was 52... but then they said it was 1863 or whatev.

Funny thing: I caught the repeat on Sunday night and he got shot after saying 1 this time. Looks like they fixed it after the first airing. :^)

The Thursday night repeat still had him saying 52, so they changed it between then and Sunday.

So now that spschat took down their Rare Media files, does anyone know where one can download audio commentary tracks?  That was a nice resource, dammit.  I have all the DVD sets, but certain mini-commentaries are funny enough on their own that you don't really even need the episode (Here Comes the Neighborhood is a personal favorite.)

I remember a year or two ago when I first noticed South Park was debuting in March, and noticing it kind of stopped being on after a short time. And then it debuted again in October and then stopped being on after a short time. I think this is REALLY STUPID, because they never warn you when it's not going to be on anymore. It's almost as bad as MythBusters, but Comedy Central does this with ALL their shows now. I still don't know when the hell they're showing the rest of Sarah Silverman.

South Park is one of the only shows that they've actually been consistant on.  The seasons are always split in half with either 7 or 8 episodes in a half and always start the first week of March and then the first or second week of October.  I agree with  you on the other shows though.

More proof that bratpop will make ignorant posts based on nothing more than his own bravado and not on facts.  I was going to say exactly what Raven said but he beat me to it.  It is consistent and it's always split up 7 episodes for each half.  The only thing that's really stupid is bratpop.   Trey and Matt know what the fuck they're doing breaking the season up like this, and really, how much different is it than any other television series?  Not very.  Plus, CC DOES let you know when the last episode of the half is on, but you should know that already based on the track record.

Yeah the Xmas Critters is one of my all-time favorite episodes.  Wrong on so many levels but it feels so right.  I do agree that it's a long wait in between halves of the season but hey, like I said before, pretty much any show on TV operates the same way.  Hell, live-action shows take longer breaks because more time is put into it.

Plus Matt and Trey whip up a new SP episode in about 5 days which is one of the main reasons why each new episode is so current with it's content.  So if they feel that they need a 4-5 month break in between to let their brains settle, then so be it.

Doesn't it kind of defeat the purpose of hi-def to have a show that's not even made in widescreen? And since it's done on computer, wouldn't thye have to output a hi-def version specially for Blu-Ray? It's just odd. Comedy Central shows are notoriously full frame, standard def.

South Park went to Widescreen in season 10.

CC just crops it on broadcast but if you look at the DVDs they are widescreen now.

Also HD doesn't mean widescreen.

You can have a 4:3 picture in HD,I have a few movies that are 4:3 and look amazing.

I would rather have black bars on the screen the the picture chopped up.

MST3K ended a decade ago and CC stopped airing it about 15 years ago.  Show me one show at that point that was being broadcast in HD widescreen.

Babylon 5 ws being shot in widescreen but it was shown in fullscreen SD at the time.

Season 13 Premiere in HD

On Wednesday March 11, 2009 at 10 pm EST South Park goes HD. We are really excited because, not only will the season premiere be in HD, but we have been working hard for over a year re-rendering previous seasons in native HD. We are not up-converting the episodes, but actually going into each episode and re-rendering every shot and frame at true HD. Check back soon for more info on the Comedy Central and South Park HD news, and the season 13 premiere.


Direct TV just added Comedy Central HD and the episodes look great.

Well that answers my rendering question.

I still think the whole "look, we made a really big TV, now all we need are really big pictures to put on it" thing is silly.

They should put Dr. Katz on Blu-Ray, just because of how absurd it would be to have a VGA animation on Blu-Ray. And maybe a nice YouTube collection. Why, their "HD" is literally six hundred and FORTY pixels wide!

I don't think it is silly at all. SD stuff looks like crap on a HDTV. I have no problem with letterboxing or pillarboxing just the actual SD image. South Park before was all washed out looking and had a really soft image on my TV. Now the colors pop and the image is as sharp as a tack!

Okay that's petty, wanting the puppets of commerce to die. At least South Park understands who the real evil is. They knew how to make fun of Britney as well. Not to make fun of her, but rather the sadistic press. She was ALSO under the thumb of the mouse. Or uh... I don't know, whatever appendages mice have.

I've never heard the Jonas Brothers, but if the parodies were anything to go by, at least they have guitars. I'll tolerate that over Nsync any day of the week. Probably just makes people angry though, since you can't say they're not a real band. For once, they are. Insofar as the Monkees were a real band.

I'm confused though. Are Matt and Trey so old that they have teen or preteen daughters? Why are they focusing on these tween sensations like the JB and Twilight? Have they run out of celebrities to mock? I mean I guess so. Instead of making fun of Michael Eisner or whoever took over Disney, or even the zombie of Disney, they made fun of the mouse. Fuck, I haven't seen Mickey Mouse in any form of media in 20 years if you don't count using his dismembered head as a logo.

It was very funny, but I thought a little insensitive. I also thought the whole thing with the judges pleasuring themselves during the beauty pageant was just... sickening. I think Matt and Trey can make great comedy without being so overtly explicit. Then again... maybe they aren't talented enough to reach that level of subtlety without retaining the same amount of humor(I'd love for them to prove me wrong though).

I didn't find it to be anything but South Park business as usual.  The gag with the judges was just as sickening as the reality shows of the pageant contests that they were parodying, they just of course took it a few steps over the top.

On a side note they have a contest running for this part of the season. Every week there is a hidden alien in the show somewhere and you have till Thursday night by nine EST to submit an entry with the correct spot the alien appears. Grand Prize is you get animated and put in the premiere episode next season.

I remember seeing a poster on a wall with an alien in one of the scenes that I thought was odd (can't remember if it was this week or last), guess that explains it.

I liked the ripping on the ghost hunters and some of the chipotle stuff, but the rest was too "easy", nothing that loads of stand up comics haven't said before...

On a side note they have a contest running for this part of the season. Every week there is a hidden alien in the show somewhere and you have till Thursday night by nine EST to submit an entry with the correct spot the alien appears. Grand Prize is you get animated and put in the premiere episode next season.
Maybe that explains why there is one in the John Edwards episode. At one point while they're at his show, you see one on the leg of the person behind them.

I think I have for once a legitimate gripe here. First of all, the crew of the Whaling ship may be liars, but at least they aren't hypocrites, being vegans and all. Secondly, as far as I can tell, the Japanese aren't killing the whales for food. Third, When slaughterhouses kill cows and chickens, they are supposed to do it humanely and quickly so the poor creatures cannot suffer. The japanese obviously don't really care because they just harpoon the creatures in the back, which usually doesn't kill them right away. Fourth, but least importantly Cows and Chickens are hardly an endangered species. I think Matt and Trey were just ticked off at Captain Paul Watson and needed to come up with something that sort of fit the paradigm for an episode. I gotta say though, shortly after the japanese Harpooned Captain Watson through the back of the head, I nearly died laughing when somebody said "Maybe he's still alive!"

bikes are loud because they let people know they are around. People listening to loud music would change lanes and kill the bikes if they weren't loud. Harlies are like only 3 - 4 feet tall.

The douches are the people who ride back and forth through a city and pump their accelerator while at a stop light

It wouldn't hurt....

As a rider (not a Harley) loud pipes do help with letting people know you are there. But they don't have to be as loud as a lot people run. I still have baffles in my pipes and I can be quiet if I need to be. I really hate the douche bags who run straights with no baffles they are the worst. You don't need to be that loud.  Also a good horn is essential. I am going to get this one:

At the height of the high gas prices I could go 200 miles for $10 or so.  One of the things I hate the most about living in Massachusetts now is that I can't ride year round. In the winter I have to become a cage-driver.  When I lived in AZ I could ride year round (and I did).

Which is why loud (not overly/obnoxious/no baffle loud) pipes are good, as well as the nice and loud horn.  As far as getting hit?? Yes there is that risk but as long as you are not a douche bag hotshot rider who is trying to compensate for other inadequacies, the risk is minimal.  Riding a motorcycle requires constant attention. When I ride I know that most motorcycle accidents are caused by cars turning left in front of you.  That is number 1 in my mind when I come to an intersection. I am always looking for the car that is going to kill me.

That sounds like fun.  ;)

I couldn't ride a motorcycle simply for this reason:

"What happened to your husband?"

"Oh he got ran over by an SUV turning left while he was out on his bike."

"Oh my god! That's terrible. Where was he going?"

"He was going down the corner store for some Cheetos."

"Hmm ... well at least he wasn't lost in vain."

I'd never leave the house -- there are very few destinations which are good enough to be "always looking for the car that is going to kill me."

But each to their own -- I'll be on the lookout for you when I'm turning left ... don't want to have to pay for a new paint job. ;)

For some reason in my hometown, there was this attitude among hum-drum  car drivers that it was okay to be as rude and reckless as possible around bikers. I recall in the mid-80s that there were dozens of serious to fatal accidents involving bikes and cars each month for a few years. It must have made a big impact on me because I'm super careful around bikers. Even a light-weight ,97 Altima can demolish a Harley Fatboy and the guy riding it.

I love bikes, personally. I think they're beautiful machines worthy of admiration. I don't know anymore that I'd want to own and ride one, however. I'm paranoid enough over my safety in a car much less a bike, so I'm content to admire from afar. I get amused by how bikers notice me noticing their bike and they think I'm ga-ga over them.  :D

Here in the city riding a bike is a dangerous game. No one uses their signals to make left turn across traffic, let alone to switch lanes. Which is why it amazes me that it's still legal for bikes to actually ride between lanes.

I'm sticking with forgettable, guess it didn't gross me out enough to be memorable.

It was a good try at a long setup (building Kyle's anger and then have the cure for "pee anger" be something he hates even more), too many gross or unbeleavable elements put together at once I guess.  Normally they do one or the other and it usually works.

'Tiger Woods' Makes 'South Park' Appearance

'South Park' creators have written Tiger Woods into the opening of the show's 14th season.

In this publicity image released by Comedy Central/South Park Studios, Eric Cartman, and an animated version of golfer Tiger Woods are shown in a scene from the 14th season premiere of the animated series, 'South Park,' airing March 17.
NEW YORK Golf clubs in hands or not, the kids of "South Park" are ready to take on Tiger Woods.

Creators of the Comedy Central cartoon have long since proven that no subject is sacred to them. So for the opening of its 14th season on Wednesday, the troubled golfer encounters Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman in their animated Colorado town.

"It's such an important issue in America right now the sex addiction outbreak," Matt Stone, who makes the series with partner Trey Parker, said on Friday. "We're all really concerned about him and hope he gets better."

Sex addiction, the intersection of powerful men and willing women, late-night phone calls to the police and bad public relations gave them so much fodder they could have made an entire Tiger-centric season, Stone said.

Since the Peabody Award-winning show's first episode in 1997, Parker and Stone haven't worried about lines between good taste and bad if they can get a laugh. They mocked the Church of Scientology to the point of annoying Tom Cruise, and depicted Jesus Christ defecating on President Bush and the American flag.

"There's a delicacy in talking about (Woods) that we don't have to worry about," Stone said.

He wouldn't give many details about the episode, in part because he and Parker were still writing it on Friday. Stone said he was fascinated and disgusted by Woods' public apology, so it's likely that will be worked in.

"South Park" is airing its 200th episode next month.

"We can't even believe we're still here doing this," he said.

SNL already did almost the same exact joke about Tiger.  And the "disease" part reminded me of the pissing on monkeys episode that I also didn't find funny.  So only thing I found funny was Butters obsessing over bush.

Oh the monkey part was awesome!  I wasn't a fan of the Pee episode either but this had my sides hurting.  Kenny's death and the alien wizard death were also highlights.

I fell like south park always gets better or at least stays on an even keel. There was a short period around seasons 7 or eightish that i was a wee worried but each season is like 8 good three mediocre not a bad ratio ....not bad at all .Plus, so fast with the relevant topics  its like something happens and two days later theres a south park parody of it !

I would just like to point out, for the record, that KFC still exists in Colorado.

I'll also note that there are now a gazillion Medicinal MJ places in Denver. I saw 3 on my way home on Sunday. All within 2 blocks of the State Democratic HQ. I'm sure that's completely coincidental though.

I've been trying to figure that out also, it's so familiar but I can't place it.

Was it the ad for those hopping balls back in the 70s or 80s?  Or a skit on a TV show????

I thought Cartman addicted to KFC was the best part of the show.   And the ways Randy was trying to get cancer.  The doctor part is the same lame joke they have used way too much lately.

"Oh, hey, Stan, could you grab me a beer?  Stan?"

I think Randy is tied with Butters for "Best character" on the show.  When they're main characters in the episode, you know they're going to be up to something good.  When such simple, inexplicable lines such as "STANNNNNN!" and "Space Cash!" are funny every time you hear them, you've got a great character on your hands.  It's weird, because he's not really stupid in the way Homer or Peter are, he just lets himself get caught up in the moment and doesn't think things through, and it works.

I liked the concept more than the actual episode. As with last season, and probably the season before that, I am sick of them using Randy as a catch-all adult who has so little character that he'll basically do any fucked up thing they need him to do. So much have they overused his character that I was shocked to suddenly see Jimbo and Ned make a cameo. People always say Randy is such a funny character, but that's just because they force him to do funny stuff. He isn't really a character at all. He's the one token normal guy. I wish they would use Kenny's family just once. It seems like they get on these kicks until they completely burn out the character. Remember when every other episode was about Mr. Garrison?

I don't know if making fun of the people who try to obtain medical maryjane was the only approach they should have taken. Most of the news in Colorado is about the people who sell it and the fact that they are obviously drug dealers with little concern for the letter of the law or whether somebody "medically" needs it. The South Park angle was less topical and more speculative. I think it's funnier the more topical they are.

I didn't really understand the KFC thing though. I haven't seen any news about anything like that.

I think it is a reference to NY. Some a-hole politician got Trans fat banned and now want to ban ALL salt in cooking in restaurants. Yes. He wants to make it ILLEGAL to USE SALT in COOKING!! Basically it is a politician overstepping his bounds and telling people what they can and cannot eat.

They did the same thing in Philly, now I can't eat soft pretzels because they replaced the fat with soy lecithin that I'm allergic to...  Damn stuff is in everything now, takes me forever to shop because I have to read every label, never know when they will add it so something that was safe before.

Every few years there's always someone saying some business is targeting low income areas, so the KFC thing was pretty funny to me.

Now Philly wants to tax any sugar sweetened drink to make money.

The salt thing is pretty funny, let's see, no more authentic italian bread, bland pasta, etc.., would any restaurant be able to survive?

I remember a while back NJ banned "runny" eggs, that was repealed after a few years.  But it did get the egg industry to solve the salmonella problem, and it was pretty simple, just spray the chicks with good bacteria so the salmonella never takes hold in their guts.

Just to say, I AM Stan in this episode.  I only have Facebook because apparently you have to have it these days.  I barely check it, I rarely comment, and I'm not Virtual Farming or playing Yahtzee anytime soon.  The only thing I really find useful is that I don't have to remember e-mail addresses to remember how to talk to somebody I haven't in a long time.

I love technology and I like people, but I just don't care for Facebook.  I will say, though, it is an infinitely better concept than Twitter, which is quite possibly the most unnecessary form of communication in the world.  Want to chat?  Get a headset or join a forum.  Want to tell somebody what you ate for breakfast today?  Buy a cat.    ;)

I do like how they resolved the Kip Drordy story, though...I thought they were going to make him a real weirdo at first, but they made you feel for him...even if all he does is hang out on Facebook all day.

my feelings exactly. I don't even have a profile. I pass by the computer labs here and lots of the time see people doing the virtual farming. I think the site like Myspace, Facebook, twitter, etc are a waste of time. I can maybe understand a celebrity and following them. It is a nice way to get a bit of info out quickly. But other than that we don't need to know James704 had Just had Waffles and now needs to use the restroom.

I LOVED the whole Tron joke. As soon as they did the computer voice I chuckled and thought "Tron joke" then they do an entire parody of it. I laughed my ass off. Especially when it was just Yahtzee as the only game. I did predict the ending as soon as they mentioned the problem would resolve itself. I knew it would go to the sad kid.

I'm predicting that we'll all be talking Facebook-ese in about 20 years like the FB accounts. Instead of having to use the lengthy explinations for break ups, telling someone you don't like them, or just when you're avoiding a person, all you'll have to say is "Ignore." and it's a done deal. We'll also be speaking in the third person and psychologically unable to form friendships IRL unless it's done on FB first.

Not only that, it's completely true...though my experience is more from wading through the various game lobbies via PS3, not Facebook.  99.9% of people I meet with headsets are either jerks, 12 years old, annoying, or some majorly screwed up combination of all 3.  Makes finding people to join up with online difficult, but at the same time I actually LIKE playing with the people on my friends list.

As much as I don't get the hype over Facebook and am not part of the "friend collecting" trend, at least there is a modicum of content, unlike MySpace which is basically an address book with comment boxes.

`South Park' creators plan B'way musical for 2011

NEW YORK  (AP) - The creators of the cheeky animated TV series  "South Park" are taking aim at Broadway.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone have written a musical comedy called "The Book of Mormon" that will open on Broadway in March 2011. The two wrote the show's book, music and lyrics, along with Robert Lopez, one of the creators of the Tony-winning "Avenue Q." The musical will be directed by Parker and Jason Moore, who directed "Avenue Q."

Producers Scott Rudin (ROO'-dihn) and Anne Garefino (gar-uh-FEE'-noh) said Wednesday that a theater, casting and other production details would be announced later.

The Emmy-winning "South Park" premiered in 1997 on Comedy Central.

It was funny that they mocked the other religions before even depicting Mohammad ... in the back of a Uhaul. But they were still not making fun of Mohammad. Which does feel like they maybe positioning themselves to actualy try and depict him. I have alwayt thought is a artist or someone else depicted him as a cartoon and not doing anything insane or crazy (Childrens book or even just a picture with a title of his name) that it maybe the first step towards Muslim's progressing and not being such assholes about making fun of their prophet.

On one of the commentaries for Cartoon Wars, the guys talk about how they were so fascinated by the Mohammad thing and and this creation of a new taboo and censorship and all that, and all anyone could talk about was Family Guy and still talking about Tom Cruise being gay. So in addition to the best love letter to fan's ever (Mr. Hat's conversation with Mitch Connors was maybe my favorite thing ever - God I missed you, Mr. Hat) it was bringing all that back into the fold.

Even if it was the POINT to not be a funny episode, I uh, I went along with that rather than thinking that joke was the funniest thing ever. I mean it was okay as post-modern art commenting on the idea of a 200th episode special (even though not enough shows have one to parody). But it just wasn't that funny.

Yes they were. They were mocking the fact that it is "forbidden" to show him in human form. So they do it by putting him in ridiculous ways of getting around that. They showed him in a season 5 episode just fine, but since the Amsterdam political cartoon was banned, it has been a big deal to show him. This is just mocking that fact you can't show him. So put him in the back of a UHaul van. That is a little silly. Then put him in a mascot costume. Now THAT is funny and insulting!

Post by: SJP on April 16, 2010, 07:14:54 PM
I put money on the "Queef Sisters," myself.  Not as Cartman's father, but as what they might show instead of Part II.

I enjoyed the episode (especially how "Mitch Connor" keeps walking back and forth dramatically at the camera), but a few things I find amusing in ways the South Park guys may or may not have been thinking about at the time...

1. Is it ironic that they tear George Lucas and Stephen Spielberg a hole for constantly "one-upping" all their old stuff, and yet they probably spent more time making "Mecha-Streisand 2.0" than they've done on any animation in the past 3 years?  Granted, they haven't gone back and PUT the new Mecha-Streisand in the old episodes, but still...

2. Somebody mentioned Imaginationland...while I still like those episodes, I sort of feel like this episode won't last too long after its initial impact.  Watching Imaginationland again, once I got over the whole "Look!  Optimus Prime!  Thundercats!  It's a Where's Waldo of childhood memories!" aspect the story itself isn't one of their most clever or rewatchable...it's more gimmicky than anything.  The same thing here...once you stop going, "Ok, there's Kanye, there's Sarah Jessica Parker," and so on, how is the story going to hold up?

Now, to be perfectly honest, I like pretty much every episode of South Park ever (as in, there are none that I think "really, really, suck"), but there are ones I definitely watch more than others, and something tells me this falls into the latter category.  But I'll give it time and see what, if anything, happens in the next episode.

'South Park' Creators Could Face Retribution for Depicting Muhammad, Website Warns


RevolutionMuslim.com posted a warning following the 200th episode of Trey Parker and Matt Stone's "South Park," which included a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad disguised in a bear suit.

A radical Islamic website is warning the creators of "South Park" that they could face violent retribution for depicting the Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit during an episode broadcast on Comedy Central last week.

The Web posting also included a graphic photo of Theo van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker who was murdered in 2004 after making a documentary on violence against Muslim women.

"We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show," the posting reads. "This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them."

Reaching by phone early Tuesday, Abu Talhah al Amrikee, the author of the post, said he wrote the entry to "raise awareness." He said the grisly photograph of van Gogh was meant to "explain the severity" of what Parker and Stone did by mocking Muhammad.

"It's not a threat, but it really is a likely outcome," al Amrikee said, referring to the possibility that Parker and Stone could be murdered for mocking Muhammad. "They're going to be basically on a list in the back of the minds of a large number of Muslims. It's just the reality."

Al Amrikee said the website is considering a protest against the "disgusting" show, which also depicted the Prophet Muhammad in an episode on July 4, 2001.

"This is not a small thing," he said. "We should do whatever we can to make sure it does not happen again."

The posting on RevolutionMuslim.com also includes audio of a sermon by Anwar al-Awlaki -- a radical U.S.-born preacher now believed to be hiding in Yemen -- who discusses assassinating individuals who defame the Prophet Muhammad. It also included a link to a 2009 story in the Huffington Post that gave details of Stone and Parker's mansion in Colorado.

A Comedy Central spokesman told FoxNews.com that the network has no comment on the posting

They actually showed Muhammed back in season 5 and nothing happened. I highly doubt anything will now. They are doing this because they were sick that when the dutch political cartoonist was basically abandoned by his paper and such and giving into terrorist. They guys said they were not going to live in fear and cower to the people. They will make fun of everyone.

I guess it was shown at a later time.  The "Family Guy" two parter was one of the few episodes of South Park I ever watched, and the time I saw that episode (online) the scene showing Mohammed was deleted.  I sit corrected.

I like South Park when I do watch it, but have never been able to integrate it into my regularly scheduled TV watching, and don't really like it enough to splurge on the DVDs.  I'm also kinda surprised it's still on the air.

But it wouldn't make him a Jew. Judaism follows the mother's side. If your mother is Jewish, you're Jewish no matter what you believe. If your father is Jewish, you're only a Jew if you decide to convert.

It was pretty darn funny, way more funny than the first half, I don't know if the bleeping was intentional or put in by CC, but I think it added to how funny it was.  I'm sure the big black "censored" square was intentional, to set up when it was applied to fudge packer Tom.

I was also wondering why they didn't rerun it, they normally also do a rerun on Thursday so if it doesn't come up tomorrow then we'll know.

Well of course they can't edit what netflix streams, and they won't change what's on their own site, I mean will CC now bleep his name when they air those episodes again?

I think the text is a joke, I tried to stream the book episode to see if they had an uncensored version of it and it comes up with a message saying it can't be streamed until the 24th, other episodes have later dates.   So they wouldn't have been streaming tonight's episode tonight anyway....  Looks like there's now a 3 or 4 week delay before they can stream the episodes, probably to push download sales.

I think they are just pissed that CC added extra bleeps and this is how they are complaining about it.  Since they didn't mention the black "censored" boxes and said "extra" bleeps the boxes and the "I learned something today" speech bleeps were probably intentional.

Comedy Central bleeped out all references to the Prophet Muhammad in Wednesday night's episode of the animated show "South Park."

The episode was a continuation of last week's episode which depicted the Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit.

A radical Muslim website threatened the show's creators following that episode.

Comedy Central confirmed to FoxNews.com that it had censored the show, and that the episode was not available on its website.

In addition to bleeping the words "Prophet Muhammad," the show also covered the character with a large block labeled "Censored."

A radical Islamic website had warned the creators of "South Park" that they could face violent retribution for their depiction of Prophet Muhammad

This is why, even in an age of digital downloads, it's always good to have a hard copy of something.  Though, considering Comedy Central's reaction, it won't be long before they send out mailers to all of us who bought Season 3 and demand they return them or face some sort of criminal penalty.

I ain't returning Season 3, and I'm keeping my "MST3K Vol. 10" with Godzilla, dammit!   ;D

There was an editorial in the Wall Street Journal today where the guy basically said that Trey and Matt are now gonna need super duper security unless we all band together and start propagating the likeness of Muhammed across all forms of media.  Now all we need is a photograph of Muhammed to create our likenesses from.  Or we could just draw a random stick figure with a squiggly line informing all that that is Muhammed.

The only thing that gives me solace is that this strange taboo is the reason for the intricate beauty in the Al Hambra in Spain.

I wouldn't be too surprised, however, if they put a ban out on selling the original set until they're able to reprint a new one that either doesn't include the ep or puts a *censor* bar over Mohammed.

But wait... the episode DID offend Muslim Extreemists, and some of them DID make death threats, before the episode aired (regarding a previous episode, but still). SO Comedy Central censored it because of what they knew would happen (because it happened before) and what did in fact happen. There was no doubt that it would offend the Muslim Extreemists, its just a matter of whether they were willing to do so. That message makes it sound like a theoretical issue when it is a fact. I do believe that the episode should have been aired uncensored. Muslim extreemists cannot be allowed to control others, just as America allows them to express their views freely (as long as they are not breaking laws or in other ways infringing on other peoples' rights).

It seems like that was one point, I think that's the worst anti-jew dialog Cartman has ever done.   Also I think everything at the camp was a way to get some mild digs at the handicapped and native Americans, also stuff some groups can get upset about.

I didn't laugh much at this one, can't think of any towely episode that's been funny.   Some of the camp stuff was OK, but still only mildly funny.

I couldn't help but think that the ep was intended to be lame. Towlie is one of the least liked characters on the show and is usually only hauled out on special occasions to that end. But like SLP, though I wouldn't put it past Matt and Trey as a form of protest, I don't want to read too much into it.

Police Won't Rule Out 'South Park' Link in Times Square Bomb Attempt


May 2: Reporters study a photo of one of the alarm clocks found in the Nissan Pathfinder that was used in the attempted bombing on Times Square.

Authorities have not ruled out a link between Saturday's failed Times Square bombing and a New York Islamic group that warned the creators of "South Park" that they face retaliation for lampooning the Prophet Muhammad.

New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly told reporters Sunday that while no connection has been established, detectives are looking into whether the botched car bombing may be linked to a warning issued last month by Revolution Muslim -- a radical Islamic group based in Queens -- following last month's 200th episode of Trey Parker and Matt Stone's "South Park," which included a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad disguised in a bear suit.

Younus Abdullah Muhammed, who runs the website RevolutionMuslim.com, told the New York Daily News he was in Times Square when the bomb-packed SUV was found, but he said he was not involved in the failed terror attack.

"What do you think, I commanded somebody to blow up a building in the middle of Times Square?" Muhammed told the newspaper. 

"It had nothing to do with the 'South Park' controversy. It was not an attack targeting Viacom," he said. He could not be reached for further comment early Monday.

An image taken from surveillance video released by the NYPD shows a man changing his shirt near the area of Times Square where the car bomb was found.

RevolutionMuslim.com posted a warning following the 200th episode of Trey Parker and Matt Stone's "South Park," which included a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad disguised in a bear suit.

Zachary Adam Chesser, the author of the original post on RevolutionMuslim.com, declined comment when reached by FoxNews.com on Monday. Chesser, who now goes by Abu Talhah al-Amrikee, warned Parker and Stone last month that they "will probably end up" like a Dutch filmmaker who was murdered in 2004 after releasing a documentary on violence toward Muslim women.

"We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably end up like Theo van Gogh for airing this show," the posting read. "This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them."

Chesser told FoxNews.com last month he wrote the post to "raise awareness" and said a graphic photo of van Gogh's body that accompanied his writing was intended to show the severity of what Parker and Stone did by mocking Muhammad.

"It's not a threat, but it really is a likely outcome," Chesser said in reference to the possibility of Parker and Stone being killed. "They're going to be basically on a list in the back of the minds of a large number of Muslims. It's just the reality."

Islamic law prohibits depictions of the prophet.

The dark-colored Nissan Pathfinder packed with propane, gasoline and fireworks was found Saturday evening on West 45th St. and Broadway in Times Square, near the headquarters of Viacom, which owns Comedy Central. A spokesman for Comedy Central declined comment on Monday.

A top House Republican has said the attempted car bombing may have been connected to the controversial "South Park" episode.

"It's one possibility out of 100, but this vehicle was close to a Viacom building, which owns MTV and Comedy Central," Rep. Peter King, R-NY, told an interviewer on Sunday. "And you have the whole issue with 'South Park,' which Islamic terrorists were threatening to have retribution for. So all of these things have to be looked at."

King, the ranking member of the House Homeland Security Committee, said he expects the investigation into the car bomb to move quickly.

"Fortunately, a lot of evidence was left behind, and you have the best police force in the world with the NYPD and the joint terrorism task force in New York on top of it, and they will be moving as quickly as they possibly can," King said. "And we can be sure it will be a thoroughly exhaustive and professional investigation."

NYPD officials continued to search Monday for a middle-aged man who was videotaped shedding his shirt near where the bomb was found. Police have interviewed the owner of the vehicle used to house the bomb, but chief NYPD spokesman Paul Browne would not give further details and would not say whether either individual is considered a suspect.

Attorney General Eric Holder, meanwhile, told reporters on Monday that it's too early in the investigation to say whether the bomb plot was of foreign or domestic origin, as well as to designate as a terrorist incident. Those responsible for the act, however, "intended to spread terror across New York," he said.

I heard speculation on the CC connection on Saturday, just shortly after the bombing attempt, but this was new:


Younus Abdullah Muhammed, who runs the website RevolutionMuslim.com, told the New York Daily News he was in Times Square when the bomb-packed SUV was found, but he said he was not involved in the failed terror attack.


Wow. Dude, you either had a hand in the attempt or are simply the unluckiest person on the planet. I'd invite him to Vegas so that I could bet against him, but you know- the whole "Gambling is against the will of the Prophet" thing.

*Necro-Bump*

So have we all seen the latest South Park yet?

It started out as a neat little send-up on Cynicism, but the conversation at the end between Sharon and Randy (Without spoiling anything about the episode) Makes it sound a LOT like Trey and Matt are feeling like they're getting too old for this, or that South Park is getting too old, or that maybe they're not hip enough to skewer current pop culture. Other people think they're just tired of getting skewered by cynical critics. So what's everyone think? The end of South Park? The start of a new South Park Era? A way to keep us on edge until after the mid-season break and then it all suddenly goes back to normal?

The episode is up here:

All the armchair analysis I have read about it seem to point to them ending the show soon. Only time will tell. The last thing I read about their contracts with CC say that the show is renewed thru 2013. Maybe this is the beginning of the end? Who knows. As far as I can tell Matt and Trey haven't made any public statements about the episode or what their intentions were.

I definitely interpreted that as meaning it's time to hang it up. I suppose they could just be experience a creative crisis or burn out, or both. Who knows except them? But I don't expect it will be on for much longer. They've had a hell of a run.

I thought the contrast between the bathroom humor and the ending montage worked really well. Like a realization that they're running out of juice and facing the reality of it.

I don't think it is ending. I do think it will go back to normal next ep.

I think it was a message to all the critics who were saying it is terrible this season. M&T have been doing the same basic jokes even this season. Nothing has really changed with them. But people see it differently. So maybe it is THEM that changed, not the show.

I feel the same about the simpsons. To me it is still funny and never changed. Others say it sucked after season 10. I don't see it.

Personally I have liked this season of SP. It isn't as good as last seasons, but these are overall good average episodes. They can't all be stuff like Trapped in the Closet or World of Warcraft.

As Dash noted, it's very agricultural based. UNC is a major Ag studies school, for example. The ever present cows in every shot of Greeley just struck my funny bone right.

Side note- a few years back, I was driving back home after being in Utah for a few days, and my trip took me through Greeley at about 2 in the morning. Despite having about 80,000 people at the time and it being a weekend, I didn't see another car on the road during my entire drive through town. It  really did feel like the entire town had been rolled up and put away.

UNC does (or did) have a great MST3k fan club though. IIRC, they put on a play of Manos at one point.

Hang on. My memory of this was a bit off, I think.

I remember going to UNC to see "Manos" in a theater full of people years after MST3k went off the air. (Which was followed by a showing of Plan 9, with audience riffing. I didn't stay too long for that.) But I think the play I recall wasn't actually  of Manos. It was just a bad play, but it was accompanied with an MST3k style riffing.

Let me ask Sampo. He might remember what the deal was.

Seriously, five years? Huh.

Anyway, with the 20th anniversary of South Park came a bit of news from Isaac Hayes III who is telling folks that his father didn't willingly leave South Park.

Quote
Hayes III-Isaac Hayes did not quit South Park; someone quit South Park for him. What happened was that in January 2006 my dad had a stroke and lost the ability to speak. He really didn't have that much comprehension, and he had to relearn to play the piano and a lot of different things. He was in no position to resign under his own knowledge. At the time, everybody around my father was involved in Scientology — his assistants, the core group of people. So someone quit South Park on Isaac Hayes' behalf. We don't know who.

That's been suspected for a while, but there's confirmation of that.

Quote
South Park’s election-themed episode, originally titled “The Very First Gentleman,” has been renamed “Oh, Jeez” following Donald Trump’s victory.

(Snip)

The previously released tease for “The Very First Gentleman” depicted PC Principal holding a rally at South Park Elementary after a Hillary Clinton victory; the principal was set to welcome Bill Clinton to speak to the grade-schoolers.


This isn't the first time  that South Park's had to do this. Back in 2008, they aired an episode that was hastily re-edited to include bits of Obama's acceptance speech. And then there's the whole "First Family" Fiasco from 2000...

I thought this episode was only okay. Nothing like eight years ago, that was one for the ages.

I think I'm starting to quickly fall out of love with this long form thing they're doing. It falls into the same trap of having to endure all these "setting the pieces" episodes that all these heavily serialized shows have.

Dramas can spend those pipe-laying episodes ratcheting up, well, the drama. I guess for it to work for comedies, you'd have to be constantly increasing the laughs each episode, and I'm just not seeing that happen.

I tend to agree.  I know they're trying to do something different to mix things up and freshen the show from what I guess they felt was a rut, but really, not much of South Park was broken to begin with.  They can still be funny, but some of the jokes drag a bit when they have to be kept up for the entirety of the season.  I think they handled this best in the "Lorde" season, when the whole Lorde bit was a B story that went through the season, but left the rest of it to be its own thing.  But now that the A story is a continuing thing with twists and turns and ups and downs, it doesn't seem as tightly told as it used to be.  All the parts are right, but the puzzle isn't put together properly.
Title: Re: South Park
Post by: NRRork on November 10, 2016, 12:19:49 PM
Yeah, the Lorde thing was great, and each story was self-contained, but something from the previous episode was usually revealed to be what set the next one in motion. That was clever.

And they're not really treading into edgy satire this year. Oh, you don't like Donald Trump and think The Force Awakens was derivative? Way to be timely, guys. That one-week production schedule is being put to good use here, isn't it?

The member berries are cute, though. I'll give them that. Those are gonna be the source of a lot of memes for years to come.

Question though... is it possible to maybe develop or have our characters(specifically Cartman) mature just a little bit? I mean I know, I realize that a big part of Cartman is his unrelenting bad attitude, but some might argue that's part of his appeal for better or for worse. In any case, I could NEVER see Cartman having a girlfriend. As long as Cartman stays the way he has since day 1, he will in my opinion never be suitable relationship material for anyone. Which makes me wonder how they met and got together in the first place(unless of course I missed something in season 20, which I admit is quite possible).

I really am not sure if I want an Alexa in my home. I'm perfectly happy just doing certain things online with my laptop or putting music into my cd player(Yes, I know, I'm behind the times). Repeating back what you just told Alexa might seem funny at first, but after a while it's got to get stale.

I just thought the whole thing with "White people renovating homes" just felt kind of weak for being key to the whole story. The way everything resolved in the end was mostly just confusing to me, almost as if they didn't know where to take it all.

Yeah, they got together in Season 20.

It was kind of a weak season opening, but South Park's always been a little hit or miss. I'm sure there will be some winners this season.

I hope so cuz I've always liked South Park and I have come to have certain expectations from the show.

I'm getting the episode based on your recommendation Anais.

Okay I just watched "Put it down" on Google Play and it was pretty damn good. I think Tweak and Craig make a great couple.  :)

There was an episode about something they dubbed "True Crime Murder Porn" or something.  Cable shows doing documentaries about people killing their spouses.  The kids were all worried about these shows being a bad influence and driving their parents to kill.  At one point, they install blocking software on the cable boxes.  To watch these shows, parents must answer the question "how do you tame a horse in Minecraft?", which none of them can answer.

I was recounting this episode to some adult family members.  My 6 year old niece, who was in the room at the time, heard the Minecraft question and enthusiastically chimed in "Oh!  I know that! It's easy!"

I remember that one very fondly. My mom likes to watch ID from time to time so that bothers me a little bit.

I just watched the newest episode "Holiday special", and it was pretty funny. Randy Marsh is such an idiot sometimes. He also seems very confused as to what the word "indigenous" means. It's just funny that his son Stan has always seemed so much more level-headed by comparison. Anyways, the school is going to be in session for Columbus day and naturally the kids have completely flipped out over this development.

Enjoying the new season so far.  What happened to Mr Garrison though?

Either he's the president, having morphed more fully into his Trump form, or they've quietly undone that little detail. It's ambiguous, I think.

Judging by the image seen in the tweets in the last episode, I think everything is back to normal with Mister Garrison.

You'd be incorrect. Here's the Twitter header image from @4realpresident.

He's still President. (And pretty sure that South Park Studios set up that account since a) they used it in the episode and they're generally savvy enough to do register it before the show and b) That's not an image of Garrison that I've seen before.)

Well what can I say? I can't be right all the time.  :P
