TV Roundup: South Park
When last we left the boys, Stan got sucked into Facebook, Randy was all about medical marijuana, the celebrities tried to harvest the power of the Muslim prophet [Removed by terrified white people] and a handicapped child was raped by a tiger shark… twice. It’s never a dull time in Colorado.
Nobody does what South Park does. It makes you laugh, it makes you gasp, and it makes you think. And then it swears at you. We wouldn’t have it any other way. Part 2 of Season 14 (makes me feel old) kicks off on Wednesday with the first of about a half dozen new episodes. The newest episode, titled “Poor and Stupid,” features Cartman trying to become the greatest NASCAR driver ever. With Butters as his pit boss, will Cartman have what it takes to race with the pros? Tune in and find out.
The last batch of episodes may have been the most notable of any during South Park’s run. Comedy Central still refuses to allow streaming of episodes 200 and 201. Creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker got into some hot water and death threats after the usage of that one dude in those episodes. With all the wonderful mosque debates and tea party shenanigans happening over the summer, they shouldn’t be hard pressed for some new controversial material.
Check out this preview and catch South Park Wednesday nights at 10 on Comedy Central.
