South Park: The Fractured But Whole Review

18 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I was three years old when the first episode of South Park aired. This means that I was pooping my pants from the moment that creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, began their journey of satirizing popular culture and making endless jokes about people pooping their pants. Now, 21 years later, I poop my pants far less than I did in 1997, and Stone and Parker still churn out, week after week, some of the most cutting-edge comedy on network television. While South Park might be an old show, it’s still a series with fresh and constantly evolving subject matter that challenge what is and isn’t an appropriate for TV.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole is right in line with what you might come to expect from Stone and Parker’s twisted minds. Following up 2014’s excellent The Stick of Truth, The Fractured But Whole builds upon almost »

'South Park' Takes Shot at Harvey Weinstein

12 October 2017 10:25 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

South Park took a shot at Harvey Weinstein this week. 

The movie mogul made headlines around the world when he was accused of sexual assault and sexual harassment by numerous women. 

Each episode of South Park is made the week of air, so the show is able to be one of the most topical on TV, and creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker were not going to pass up a jab on such a huge story. 

In the episode "Franchise Prequel," the children of South Park play as superheroes and supervillains. Butters, who acts as Professor Chaos, uses Facebook to spread fake news about »

'South Park: the Fractured But Whole' Has a Script the Size of 2 Feature Films

12 October 2017 9:02 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

South Park fans clamoring for Fractured But Whole should be kept busy for quite a while once they get it, as the script for the highly-anticipated videogame is the size of two feature films. 

Sitting down with The Hollywood Reporter before the Ubisoft game's Tuesday release, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone reveled in the fact that fans will have a lot of gameplay ahead of them. 

"I sat down and played the game all the way through a few weeks ago, and even when you do that it takes 12 hours," Stone told THR.

South Park's "Franchise Prequel" is a decent video game commercial—and that's about it

11 October 2017 8:41 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Even if Trey Parker and Matt Stone have always been shameless in their self-promotion, they’ve at least been able to turn it into a good joke. To sell more tickets to The Book Of Mormon tour, they tacked on an advertisement to the end of a Broadway-themed episode in Season 15 (one of their best), and their South Park:…

Blu-ray Review – BASEketball (1998)

9 October 2017 11:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

BASEketball, 1998.

Directed by David Zucker

Starring Trey Parker, Matt Stone, Dian Bacher, Yasmine Bleeth, Jenny McCarthy, Ernest Borgnine and Robert Vaughn.

Synopsis:

Two childhood friends create a national sport called BASEketball, a hybrid of baseball and basketball, and must deal with a greedy businessman scheming against their team.

BASEketball has hit Blu-ray for the first time ever and it’s about time that it is finally released after all these years.  At the time of its release the film wasn’t well received by critics, nor was it seen by many people, what with it having a rather poor box office run. With David Zucker (Airplane!) behind the camera and South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone on board to write and star, this had all the right stuff to be truly great. While it may not be one of the best comedies of all time, it is certainly »

‘South Park’ Tells Tweeter-In-Chief: Just “Put It Down”

21 September 2017 8:26 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

South Park can no easier quit Donald Trump than Trump can quit Twitter. On last night’s Season 21 second episode, creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone implored the president to just put it down. His phone, that is. The episode, “Put It Down,” included a song of the same name, as panicked eight-year-old Tweek – the show’s openly gay kid – started an international incident by sending a batch of peace-making cupcakes to North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. But no good deed goes… »

South Park doesn't blame you—or itself—for obsessing over Trump

20 September 2017 8:14 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Before we begin, let’s get this out of the way: I promise not to make every South Park review about whether or not Trey Parker and Matt Stone bring up Donald Trump. But it’s worth mentioning again tonight because 1) It’s only the second episode of the 21st season and 2) It’s the first time this year he’s been…

15 September 2017 7:32 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

As it kicks off its 21st season, fans of the South Park TV show don't have to wonder whether it will be cancelled or renewed. Comedy Central renewed the animated adult comedy from Trey Parker and Matt Stone all the way through its 23rd season, back in July of 2015. We've decided to track the ratings, to see how much longer it might last beyond that point, so stay tuned. South Park centers on four third grade boys who live in South Park, Colorado: Stanley “Stan” Marsh (Parker), Kyle Broflovski (Stone), Kenneth “Kenny” McCormick (Stone), and Eric Cartman (Parker).

Five Things We Learned from the South Park Season 21 Premiere

14 September 2017 9:12 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

21 years of political satire has never made South Park slow down in any way; matter of fact, it’s what’s been propelling them for so many years despite of the constant backlash and lawsuits they’ve had to deal with over the years. This season’s premiere promised us more of the same even though you could tell there was a little bit of hesitation there. Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone claimed before the premiere that they were going to try to steer clear from political satire, but clearly, that wasn’t the case. Future episodes will tell us more, but for

South Park Season 21 Review

14 September 2017 6:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Both culturally and creatively, South Park finds itself in a curious position. Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s iconically crass, iconoclastic Comedy Central animation staple was surprisingly (and quite disappointingly) stunted by last year’s debris of chaos, insanity and disillusionment. In a world where Donald Trump became the President of the United States, the impossible happened: the real world got crazier than South Park, and Parker and Stone simply couldn’t compete. Especially with an overly convoluted, thematically un-compelling and generally unfocused serialized narrative that provided diminishing returns by the week.

South Park, the game-changing satirical series that changed television as we know it today, needed a change-up. Would season 21 restore its social relevance?

Based on its amusing, if not especially entertaining, season premiere, not really. At least, not yet. Continuing the serialized narrative they suggested they might leave behind, while defiantly avoiding Donald Trump as they explicated stated they would, »

South Park Season 21 Episode 1 Review – ‘White People Renovating Houses’

14 September 2017 2:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Liam Hoofe reviews the first episode of South Park season 21…

After one of the show’s most divisive seasons last year, South Park returned to our screens this week for its 21st season and what we hoped would be a return to the glory years.

Personally, I was quite a big fan of season 20, for the most part. The serialised approach provided the show with some great gags, but the season was clearly just undone by the surprise election victory of Donald Trump mid-way through its run. It’s not that Matt Stone and Trey Parker don’t still have their finger on the pulse when it comes to biting political satire because they do, it was just a case of them biting off more than they can chew. In a world where Donald Trump is present, satire is extremely difficult to pull off.

Regardless of what I thought, the »

‘South Park’ Grows Up At 21 With Subtle (!) Swipe At White Supremacists

Spoiler Alert: This review contains details about the season premiere. Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s season 21 of South Park started up tonight on Comedy Central with what, in relative terms, might be described as a subtle takedown of white supremacists. When a screaming crowd of disenfranchised, Confederate flag-waving townsfolk holler, in the manner of the Charlottesville rioters, “We will not be replaced!” their anger wasn’t directed at African-Americans, Jews, Muslims… »

Trump’s America still haunts South Park’s uneven season premiere

The entire marketing campaign for South Park’s 21st season has centered around a back-to-basics promise. According to promos and interviews with creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, it will be a season without serialization; a season with more silliness and less politics; a season without Donald Trump.

‘South Park’ Review: A Scathing Premiere Derides White Americans for Protecting White Supremacists

13 September 2017 8:25 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

One year removed from the 2016 election has given “South Park” the perspective it needs, as Trey Parker and Matt Stone wasted no time in taking aim at how America harbors white supremacy in a biting Season 21 premiere.

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “South Park” Season 21, Episode 1, “White People Renovating Houses.”]

Following the events of Charlottesville in August, where a counter-protester was murdered at a white supremacist rally, the first episode of the new season focused on the rise of white nationalist ire that led to reinvigorated pride in the hate-filled cause. The episode opened by reintroducing the recurring mob of Confederate flag-waving rednecks, a staple of the series known best for shouting, “They took our jobs!” whenever the opportunity arises.

Soundtracking: "South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut"

13 September 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris Feil's soundtrack series doesn't "Blame Canada" this week while he is at Tiff...

When Book of Mormon opened on Broadway, it was met with a fairly shocked response that Trey Parker and Matt Stone were able to create such an old-fashioned musical within their own foul-mouthed lexicon. It was as if people had quickly forgotten that they had already created a catchy and sweet musical on screen with South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut. And this was a few years before musicals would be cool at the movies again and a bit of a “gotcha” joke on their fanbase expecting simple crudeness, so maybe it’s easy to forget just how gutsy the South Park movie was. »

‘South Park’ to Tackle White Nationalists and Charlottesville in Season Premiere (Video)

11 September 2017 1:35 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

We’re guessing Trey Parker and Matt Stone are going to poke fun at #AllSides with the upcoming Season 21 premiere of “South Park.” The long-running Comedy Central series released a description and video teaser Monday for the season premiere, which revealed that the episode will touch on the recent flareup of white nationalism in America. There’s a particular nod to this summer’s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. “Protestors armed with tiki torches and confederate flags take to the streets of South Park,” the description of the episode, titled “White People Renovating Houses,” reads. “Randy comes to grips with what it means to be white. »

‘South Park’ Season 21 Premiere to Feature Tiki Torch-Wielding White Nationalists

11 September 2017 12:14 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Comedy Central is currently nearing the end of their marathon of the entire South Park series as the acclaimed comedy cartoon approaches its Season 21 debut this Wednesday night. The series, from Matt Stone and Trey Parker, is getting back to its roots of tackling hot-button, timely issues from contemporary culture. So it's no surprise that in its Season 21 premiere South Park will be taking on White Nationalists wielding tiki torches. (I'm sure the "violence on many sides" will be covered extensively.) In speaking with THR, Stone and Parker talked about their plans for the upcoming … »
