Welp, that was fast. Mr. Garrison's savage presidential antics from last week have the residents of South Park trying to create a progressive town (again). The whole incident earned the town a skewering from Jimmy Fallon, in his meanest monologue ever:To repair their image, the p.c. people of South Park decided to do the only thing that would truly help: get a Whole Foods, Asap. It's surprising that such an episode hasn't happened yet, but it's here, and with it came additional satire aimed at gentrification (if you've ever visited the "new" parts of New York City and/or Denver, SodoSopa — South of Downtown South Park — probably felt spot-on): Compared to last week's episode, this one might have felt especially tame, but if the first two installments of the season are any indication, it's probably less a stand-alone thing and more part of a bigger picture.

But I’m a Sex Addict: Babbitt Returns to Dark Comedy with Mixed Results
Though the film rests rather comfortably on the shoulders of its talented lead actresses, director Jamie Babbit’s latest, Addicted to Fresno, overreaches in its efforts to deliver an endearing yet cynical familial drama about two sisters maturing and growing closer together as they cover up an accidental murder. Written by talented television writer Karey Dornetto (“South Park,” “Portlandia”), here writing her first feature, a number of winning elements are present to constitute a successfully cynical dark comedy, but more often than not, a reliance on too many familiar narrative points tends to mish-mash the highs and lows into a mediocre black comedy. Fans of the notable cast members should find much to appreciate, though one is left with a curiously uninvolved feeling once the credits roll.

Ever since creating a short Christmas film in college together in 1992, Trey Parker and Matt Stone have been breathing life into some of the most eccentric and titillating characters the small screen has ever seen. South Park is now on it’s 18th season, and remains one of Comedy Centrals highest rated shows, with no sign of Parker and Stone’s comedic genius wearing any where near thin yet.
The reason for the shows success is most likely down to it’s reliance on the enormous recurring cast of characters that have lived in South Par , responsible for the dark and satirical commentary that we, as fans, have grown to love. From political dictators, to aliens and child psychopaths, it’s hard not to fall in love with the inhabitants of the town and, sometimes, even harder to justify why you like them so much without offending someone… »

There has been a handful of video games based on the foul-mouthed animated series South Park from Comedy Central, and most of them are pretty terrible. There was a first-person shooter for the Nintendo 64 at the height of the show’s early controversial popularity, a racing game called South Park Rally and some mess of a […]

People of a certain age (i.e. “Old”) will remember when in the early days of HBO, a weird ,wild animated film called Twice Upon a Time made the rounds. Many paid it heed because it was executive produced by George Lucas, currently in the process of imprinting our childhoods with a new mythology. But except for a laserdisc and VHS release, the film rather fell off the table, save for dedicated maniacs who remembered it fondly.
Warner Archives, print-on-demand masters of unearthing lost bits of cinema and making them available to the masses, have achieved the impossible and presented the world with a brand new release of the film, unearthing both audio tracks, and getting many of the animators together for a commentary track, including Henry Selick, who has gone on to great things like Neil Gaiman’s Coraline and Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas, and in that order. »

Donald Trump ended his boycott of Fox News on Tuesday with an appearance on “The O’Reilly Factor.” O’Reilly began by discussing a recent Trump campaign event in which a supporter asked a question in which he stated that President Obama is a Muslim and that Muslims are a problem in the U.S. O’Reilly said that Trump “did not answer directly” and asked Trump if somebody were to attack a mosque, would he be responsible?

Meet some of the best directors working today, who haven't gone down the blockbuster movie route...
Ever find it a bit lame when the same big name directors get kicked around for every high profile project? Christopher Nolan, Jj Abrams, maybe the Russo Brothers? With so much focus on blockbuster films these days, getting a major franchise job seems like the main acknowledgement of success for a filmmaker. And yes, both the financial and creative rewards can be great. But there are plenty of other directors out there, doing their own thing, from art house auteurs to Dtv action specialists.
Here are 25 examples.
Even if you don’t know his name, you’ve probably seen Lee Hardcastle’s ultraviolent claymations shared on social media. He first started getting noticed for his two-minute remake of The Thing, starring the famous stop motion penguin Pingu. Far from just a cheap one-joke mash-up, »

In the opening scene of ABC’s new half-hour sitcom Dr. Ken, allegedly brilliant physician Ken Park diagnoses a patient suffering from hemorrhoids with a pun about him being a “Web M.D.-bag” for using the internet to self-diagnose, mimicking the patients cries of dissension as they storm out of the office, refusing his treatment. So, you may be thinking, it’s a searing look into the life of a curmudgeon doctor and his attempts at balancing family and work? No, that’s what it wants to be – House meets Modern Family – but the only condition it’ll alleviate is insomnia and the only humor it’ll rustle from you is the thought of its script getting greenlit.
ABC has been on a decent streak of family sitcoms that not only populate themselves with endearingly familiar characters, but are fueled by a certain affinity for diversity (Blackish, »

Backing up a bit… After Stewie’s teacher made note of his “attention problems,” Lois took him to Dr. Hartman — the same man who once prescribed Viagra to Droopy Dog as an antidepressant — who didn’t think twice about doping a one-year-old. The result was a zombified Stewie, one less concerned with global conquest than taking naps with his eyes open. »

In 1994, The Simpsons began its sixth season with an ode to childhood summers that doubled as a Rear Window parody. In 2002, South Park started Year Six with a riff on product endorsement that spins wildly out of control because the word “aides” is a homonym. In 2010, Futurama began its official sixth season after a seven-year absence from broadcast. This Sunday in 2015, Bob’s Burgers begins its sixth season with an episode in which Bob’s moustache hair is falling out. Six years in, and hair loss is the only jumping off point Bob’s Burgers needs to continue its run of understated brilliance and exuberant comedy.
The most enduring of those aforementioned programs gave us the phrase “steamed hams” to describe a burger, but the pun-loving Bob’s Burgers owes its charms to another bad nickname for beef patties: small »

Last week's season premiere of South Park was notable for its compelling albeit conservative send-up of p.c. culture. It promised to feature Caitlyn Jenner with the utmost respect, and for the most part, it actually did. In last night's follow-up episode, however, such regard — not just for Cait, but for everybody — was abandoned: Jumping off last episode's call to accept everybody, the South Park universe last night saw an influx of Canadian immigrants. This was in part because of Kyle's viral speech from last week, but it was also thanks to the fact that Canadians had voted in Donald Trump as their president and couldn't bear to live under his rule. "There were several candidates during the Canadian elections," one Canadian noted. "He didn't really offer any solutions, he just said outrageous things. We thought it was funny. Nobody thought he'd ever be president; it was a joke, but »

While Donald Trump was busy blasting Fox News Channel last night for a contributor’s description of Carly Fiorina having “cut off his balls with the precision of a surgeon” during CNN’s recent Gop debate, he may have missed being raped and murdered over on Viacom-owned Comedy Central’s South Park. On the other hand, 1.5 million people did not miss the episode in its premiere, at 10 Pm Et last night. These days, viewing in other time slots and platforms significantly… »

The episode finds Mr. Garrison leading a crusade against illegal Canadian immigrants, a plot partly introduced when Butters meets his new girlfriend's Canuck family. The hilariously awkward scene finds Charlotte's father interrogating Butters about his "Maple fever" and eventually explaining why the family, and others, have reluctantly moved south of the border.
"There were several candidates during the Canadian elections," he says with increasing melodrama. »
