South Park S11E07 – Night of the Living Homeless

19 04 2007

I was just talking to someone yesterday about Randy Marsh and how funny he was, and lo and behold, we get an episode filled with his own brand of overreaction and crazy babble. The last time Randy lost the plot, in the ep “Something Wal-Mart this way comes”, we had classic scenes like when he rubbed his nipples against the glass in his dream like state while thinking about Wal-Mart, which I can’t find a clip of right now.

South Park S11E05 – Fantastic Easter Special

5 04 2007

I am watching this right now, and it’s gone off at a weird “crab people” tangent. It started out quite well, but I’m not liking this ending. It started with Stan asking his parents why they all paint eggs at Easter, and what does it have to do with the death and resurrection of Jesus. It turns out that Easter is a conspiracy, and that the bunnies have been in charge all along. Stan is show a picture of Davinci’s Last Supper painting, and Peter has rabbit ears, and the meal was actually eggs. They then go onto claim that the pope wears that tall hat (obviously the proper name for it) because it was originally worn by someone with rabbit ears. All funny up to that point, then it sort of lost it’s way. Not unlike this post is about to. Hmmmm, first poor episode this season.

Buy it here. Maybe not immediately, but in due course.

South Park S11E04 – Snukes

29 03 2007

It’s about fricking time. Last night’s South Park parodied 24, and in particular this weak season 6 crap that I am currently thinking about ditching. You know what makes a good parody? When the copy brings to your attention some of the absurdities of the original that you hadn’t even thought were weird. Everything is taking place “within the hour”. The frequent product placement. The constant takeovers by other departments. It was fantastically well done. There was a serious message behind the episode, and it was about how racial profiling can stop you from spotting the real criminal when he is right under your nose. figuratively speaking of course, I’m not talking about midgets being the enemy. Anywho, the episode is on the right there, in two parts. Enjoy.

The Simpsons S18E16 – Homerazzi

28 03 2007

I once knew of a person that didn’t realise that there was a different intro onto the couch in most episodes of The Simpsons. That person’s gene pool is dangerously close to extinction. bit harsh, but it segues neatly into my reason for posting about this once great comedy. Sunday’s episode featured a fantastic “couch gag” as they have come to be known over the years. It was evolution, following an organism from Amoeba to present day Homer, and I am guessing it was the longest ever intro by some way. Great intro, the rest of the episode in the words of Borat… “not so much”. Watch it after the jump, or in the vodpod if you just want to click once.

South Park S11E02 – Cartman Sucks

15 03 2007

Not gonna right much about this, but wow. As the credits were rolling last week I wondered how they could top copious use of the “N” word. How about Butters weiner in Cartmans mouth??? Huh??? Watch it and all will become clear. Season 11 is shaping up to be a classic. You won’t be able to watch it on Youtube for highly publicised reasons, but it will be on Paramount comedy 1 later in the year.

Catching up..

12 03 2007

Hello! I’ve back from Ghana where TV is either local soap operas shot by people with limited video camera ability, imported Latin American soap operas dubbed into English (now that is a new low), Idols (Yes, Simon Fuller can even sell snake oil in Africa) or those quiz shows where you can call in as many times as you want, the answer’s not right until they’ve turned a profit! So I had a week off from TV, and contrary to popular belief, I’m not smarter for the experience, I just have more TV to watch. So the last 3 days I’ve been catching up on my regulars and a lot of stuff has gone down in my TV world.

I’m back…
