South Park is about to begin its 18th season in the UK, and despite nearly two decades of episodes, it doesn't show any sign of getting 'lame', as Cartman might say.
To celebrate its return, we have chosen our personal favourite 25 from its first 247 episodes.
25. Woodland Critter Christmas - Season 8
A thoroughly bizarre but memorable episode, in which Stan finds himself in the middle of the woods with a bunch of seemingly cute woodland animals. With an irritating voiceover narrating his every move, the critters turn out to be the most evil creatures known to man. Things are pretty f**ked right here, as he would say. Eventually, it is revealed that Cartman is the creator of such an awful story, and it's all just so »
"Tokyo Tribe, never ever die!" Oh my goodness, this movie is totally insane, wacky, absurd and terrible in every way, but so so so awesome. Do you remember those kind of crazy cult films you'd find in the back of a video store, only one copy on VHS, that you'd lose your shit over discovering and would have to tell your friends about and the next thing you'd know the entire high school would be into this crazy film. Sion Sono's Tokyo Tribe is one of those films, the kind that is really bad in every way, but also insanely awesome in every way. Love it, hate it, it's a can't-believe-this-is-real experience that feels a bit like The Warriors meets You Got Served, even though it's really unlike anything else. Holy sh*t I love this movie, even as bad as it is. So what the hell is Tokyo Tribe »

Directed by: Philip Noyce
Running Time: 1 hr 34 mins
Release Date: August 15, 2014
Plot: A young man (Thwaites) living in a black-and-white future is shown colors by a piano-playing sage named The Giver (Bridges).
Who’S It For? Like your dystopias young and broody? Sure you do.
The proverbial ship, its path pushed by the passage of time, filled with passengers fighting for a seat during such a voyage, has sailed. In terms of The Giver, the old wooden vessel in this brilliant metaphor is the tale of the young chosen one rebelling against a messed up future, as one may call it. Though its source novel was written long before the films like The Hunger Games, Divergent, or even The Lego Movie, The Giver remains in the young adult sci-fi dystopic shadows of »

It's true: Malcolm David Kelly, who once played the illusive Walt on Lost and the ill-fated Lil Saint from You Got Served, is now one half of Mkto. Tony Oller ("To") is the other half, and together they've got a song you might have already heard on the radio. "Classic" is insanely catchy, the type of song deserving of the Song of Summer title. What's it like having the power to infect the world with an earworm? We asked the boys of Mkto:I know “Classic” actually came out last summer, and you guys have been touring with it for a while. Does it feel like it’s gotten too old to perform? Are you over it yet? Malcolm: No, you never really get that feeling. Sometimes it feels like we’re performing it a lot, but it’s actually a good time. Every time we perform it and everybody is singing along, »

He debuted with dance in the likes of You Got Served and the Fame remake, but Kevin Tancharoen moved to more violent subject matters with the Mortal Kombat digital series. It appears he’s still in a deadly mood, because he’s signed to direct a bullet-filled version of A Christmas Carol called The Guns Of Christmas Past.Andrew Hilton’s script is loosely inspired by Charles Dickens’ spook-some festive morality classic, but it flies off in very different directions. The plot finds a retired hit man – who, if you know anything about retired hit men in cinema, is not in for an easy time of it – returns home to Chicago on Christmas Eve to celebrate with family. No, wait… He’s there to avenge the death of a friend. Told you it wouldn’t go well.As part of his vengeful quest, he has to fight his way through »
Vacancy, Joy Ride, Wrong Turn…what do these films collectively have in common? They all are somewhat responsible for No Vacancy, a film that relies heavily on its “written and directed by the director of You Got Served” selling point, which to be completely honest, pretty much lays it out on front street regarding what you’re in store for.
While the group of youngsters just trying to have fun angle has been done to death, with sometimes better delivery, what instantly lets viewers know the type of film that they’re getting, is the excessive amount of lens flares on Everything. The sun, the motel lights, even glasses, you would think J.J. Abrams’ post production crew had their hand in this one. If you can avert your eyes from the lens flares for at least a few moments, you might be able to follow the story, revolving around a group of lost youngsters, »

Is it sad that I look forward to defeating my first monster, only so I can utter the words, "You Got Served!" I know, I know, the movie was terrible, but I will hold on to that phrase for dear life. Regardless of my bad lingo, what's not bad is the ridiculous and over the top nature of Battle Princess of Arcadia's hack and slash combat. The game also scratches that "gimme that loot!" itch, and includes a robust upgrade and enhancement system to boot. You can swap your various party members in and out during battles, which are separated into three categories. Regular battles classify as combat, and have you and 2 others of your team taking on the enemy. Skirmishes are team vs. team, and sieges feature your entire team against ancient enemies, akin to huge boss characters.
It reminds me very much of the multi-tiered system that I loved from the Suikoden series, »

For the last ten years, Harry Shum Jr. has shown his gifts for acting, singing, and most extraordinarily, dance, starring in such films as You Got Served, Stomp The Yard, and Step Up 2 & 3, and moving on to his most famous role, as “Other Asian” Mike Chang on Glee.
Unfortunately, he was always underutilized during his time with the show, but still managed to stand out. He still makes occasional appearances, but has moved on to more film roles (he played Booboo Stewart‘s gay brother in White Frog), and shows us reminders of his incredible dancing ability.
Today is his 32nd birthday, so let’s pay tribute to one of our favorite triple threats.
