When Butters turned down Lisa Berger for being “too fat” on South Park‘s season finale, it seemed like just another offensive episode of Comedy Central’s long-running series. But when it was revealed that Butters’ entire perception of female beauty stems from HollywoodLife.com staple Kim Kardashian, I knew the evening was “Bound 2″ end up incredible.
Immediately, Wendy argued that Kim not only is Kim “overweight” in real life, but she’s literally a Hobbit. And who came to Kim’s defense, besides the always-professional Mr. Mackey? Why, none other than Kanye West, who is now apparently open about being a “recovering gay fish.”
(Good for him, honestly.)
Clearly inspired by Kanye’s recent string of self-loving rants, South Park‘s Yeezy was completely out of his gourd. »

Larry and George Lamb have always been the best of mates. But though George finds his father a huge inspiration, he'd never go to him for relationship advice
His story: Larry Lamb, 66, actor
When George was a kid I had a saddle for him that was fixed to the crossbar of my bicycle. He would sit there with his little feet up in between my arms and we'd ride everywhere around London. Becoming his dad was when I started to grow up, and his childhood is filled with extraordinary memories for me.
When he was about three, George's mum and I realised we couldn't live under the same roof. I was working class, from the northern edges of London, and Linda [an entrepreneur], was middle class, from Dundee. I remember it all coming to a head one day when she told me: "You can't just put a milk bottle on the table »

Spike's re-branded game awards, Vgx, aired this weekend, and here are some of the best trailers...
Although the general appreciation of Spike TV's gaming award is often mixed, being the source of much internet hatred, there's one thing the show always delivers, regardless of your opinion of it, and that's exclusives and new game reveals. This year was no different, and we got some demonstrations of some big name titles, as well as one or two major reveals.
As to be expected, the show featured more footage and coverage of known triple-a titles like Titanfall, Thief, The Witcher 3, Destiny and The Division, but it also focused on some new surprises. These included Telltale's two new projects, A Game of Thrones series, and Tales From the Borderlands, which sees the episodic developer team up with Gearbox to bring more depth to the world of Pandora. »
Annual video game awards show change name, format, and broadcast exclusively online to show off amazing game footage, but is that enough?
On Saturday evening, Spike brought their annual Vga awards online for the first time in its history. The awards, now retitled Vgx, was a three hour webcast event exclusively streamed on Viacoms Cable Network websites, Yahoo Screen, Xbox Live and Twitch. The event, which was hosted by Gametrailers own Geoff Keighley and Joel McHale(Community, The Soup) eschewed the traditional large award show format of previous years and instead replaced it with a format of interviews, award presentation, trailer reveals and audience participation, which drew mixed commentary from the audience. However, the evening had its share of highlights and lowlights, both from developers and the talent themselves

More-so than probably any other game I’ve played this year, Stick It to the Man! has a persistent atmosphere of pure weirdness. Be it the visual art style, the writing, the premise, and even the gameplay mechanics, this is a pretty goofy title. Don’t get me wrong, I mean all of that in a positive manner, because the game’s off-the-wall nature is ultimately part of its charm. An interesting fusion of 2D platformers and classic point-and-click adventures, this is a well-crafted title in almost every respect and it’s the latest indie must have.
Despite having the risky job of a hard hat durability tester, things are going relatively fine for our protagonist Ray. That is, until a mysterious object from a government plane lands on his head. After waking up from the collision, Ray is surprised to find a large “spaghetti arm” growing out of his »

Premiering tonight on Adult Swim (Cartoon Network’s weird older brother) is Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland's Rick & Morty. The half-hour animated series is about a "sociopathic scientist who drags his unintelligent grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe." The show features the voices of Roiland, Chris Parnell,Spencer Grammer, and Sarah Chalke. Last week I landed an extended video interview with Harmon and Roiland. They talked about making the pilot, the evolution of the show in future episodes, network input, how the two of them share responsibilities, their writing process, the show’s use of sci-fi and how it helps to develop their stories, staying away from satire, and a lot more. Hit the jump to watch.

If you are a South Park fan then it is likely that you will be familiar with phrases such as “Wait, they did what this week?” or “They are never going to get away with this one”. The cries of fans everywhere are echoed by the creators themselves, who have admitted ‘there are some South Park episodes where we’re like “Oh man, how did we not get in trouble for that?”
South Park is known for its shocking plotlines and critical outlook on celebrities, religion, and politics. Although it seems no subject matter is out of bounds for Matt and Trey, there have certainly been a few episodes that have taken it to the very edge. And unsurprisingly complaints were made, celebrities moaned, and controversy ensued! But which episodes caused the most controversy?
Well, let us delve into the jaw-dropping, eye-widening, close to the knuckle world of South Park controversy… »

The long-running horror franchise featuring psychopath Jason is to get rebooted in 2015, possibly with a 'found footage' spin
• Gallery: the bizarre Friday the 13th engagement photoshoot
He's been dragged to hell, blasted into space and killed Kelly Rowland while fighting Freddy Krueger, but now the seemingly indestructible psychopath Jason Voorhees is back for the 13th Friday the 13th movie. According to the Exhibitor Relations Twitter feed, a date of Friday 13th March 2015 has been set for the release.
The news follows a deal where Warner Brothers relinquished the franchise to Paramount (along with partial rights to a future South Park movie) so it could co-produce Christopher Nolan's forthcoming Interstellar. Horror journalist Ryan Turek tweeted last month that the film's producers were fielding story treatments from a 'found footage' angle – similar to movies like Cloverfield where the action takes place through supposed amateur video.

As if 2015 wasn't already stacked with the likes of Batman vs. Superman, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jurassic World, The Fantastic Four, Star Wars: Episode VII and... umm... Fifty Shades of Grey, now there's a new figure stepping into the fray - one wearing a hockey mask.
Paramount have announced a release date for their new Friday the 13th movie of March 13th, 2015. If you hadn't guessed already, that's a Friday.
2013 has been a good year for Jason Voorhees with the release of the complete Friday the 13th collection on Blu-Ray as well as 7+ hour documentary Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th giving fans their most in-depth look at the series.
Earlier this year it was announced that Paramount acquired the rights to Friday the 13th (as well as the South Park movie rights) in a deal with Warner Bros. in exchange for stakes in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. »

Amazon's week long deals for 2013 Black Friday and Cyber Monday continue today, Wednesday, November 27, with a new schedule of DVDs and Blu-rays going on sale today and they are starting early. The deals throughout the day begin just after midnight today and there are a few titles worthy of your attention. If I had to select one title from the batch of deals going live today it would certainly be the Planet of the Apes Blu-ray collection, beyond that the Schindler's List Blu-ray is worth considering and, if you're looking for a nice little quadruple feature you can't really go wrong with picking up the Atonement, Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre and Elizabeth bundle, the price isn't yet available, but I have to assume it won't break the bank. Finally, that Best of Warner Bros. Romance Collection at 12:20 Pm might be worth a look as it includes some greats such »

In the sixth episode of its twelfth season Sunday night, Family Guy made a dramatic move that will no doubt change the show in a major way from here on out. In the past, characters on this and other animated shows have suffered all kinds of traumatic injuries and returned the next week without a scratch. For years, South Park killed Kenny in every episode only to have him come back as if nothing had happened the next time. But apparently, when the Griffin family dog Brian was killed by a car in last night's episode, it was the real thing. »

Brian Griffin, the eloquent talking dog on Family Guy, died in last night's episode, titled "Life of Brian." A car struck and crushed him as he was setting up a street-hockey net. "You've given me a wonderful life," he told the rest of the family before dying at the vet. "I love you all." After he passed, the show posted a video displaying highlights of Brian's interactions with the Griffin family, many of which included vomiting and farting and suffering at the hands of the Griffins.
