New season starts this Wednesday.

They are libertarians. It’s not funny unless EVERYONE is pissed off by their comedy. Conservatives a little bit and STATIST liberals A LOT.

And not the Libertian strawmen so frequently used here.

Have they done one on taxpayer-paid school lunches, breakfasts and now dinners?

Or is the idea parents should feed their own kids before paying $75 a month for cable a bridge too fat for even SP?

SNL, Colbert and Stewart are 90/10 liberal comedy. South Park is the only pop culture show that is 10/90.

I don’t disagree. Mine was a question rather than a critique.

Let me put it this way: I think it would be great if SP took on school lunches (especially the kvetching in the summertime when school is out).

I was hoping they did it in the last few years (it is tough for me to keep up), but if not I hope they will soon...

I thought about that. I even have a script in my head. Matt and Trey won’t return my calls :-)

They did have a Cartman Fat Camp episode. They really should do something with the pubik school lunch thing.

I'll catch the repeat of SP.

I’d like to see SMUG II: Electric Boogaloo (hybrid smug car owners, now deal with the news that their vehicles are no better than regular cars in terms of energy savings given the fare greater energy required to make them and their batteries, and the fact their electricity comes from coal plants).

Settled in for a couple of enjoyable hours of the “South Park” marathon on Sunday afternoon - lots of old favorites including the Mormon episode and the one with all the old folks heading for the Country Kitchen Buffet - “Kiss my sagging a$$” - funny, funny stuff......

This is brilliant. People claim to want privacy and then they go on Twitter Facebook Instagram and post every detail on their life.

Rush had a piece on this when George W and the NSA was Tracking cell phone calls after 9/11. There are 3 trillion calls a day and nobody cares about your life.

I thought it was an average epi for SP. Nothing in particular stood out as lasting.

Whining about privacy while on speakerphone, etc., was good.

Didn't expect Santa, but was disappointed that after the setup, they didn't take the opportunity to tie in that nobody watches pMSNBC, so "whistle blowing" on that venue doesn't count.

The 2nd episode of the season starts in 24 minutes.

“Informative Murder Porn”

If I see John Edwards naked for even a split second, I’m drawing the line on what is offensive and turning it off. Everyone has their limits.

Drop cable and get DirecTV.

I think there is some inside Viacom joke there.

$100/mo bill and $70 goes to ESPN and regional sports stations.

New episode tonight at 10.

“World War Zimmerman”: let me guess... Cartman shoots Kenny because he saw a suspicious kid wearing a hoodie.

Token’s skin may be black but he is rich and wouldn’t be seen in Cartmans neighborhood.

Kenny is poor weird and wears a hoodie.

But it’s their show. I don’t know what they wrote.

Not worth watching.

Their point was “stand your ground” laws encourage you to lure people you have a grudge against into a situation where you can shoot them. And then claim you were threatened.

It was not funny. And I don’t even own a gun.

I didn’t see it as even a fair episode either. I could see others getting it all wrong but Parker and Stone usually have their facts straight before making the show. Not this time. Looks like they phoned that one in or had other people do it. Wasn’t even timely.

From this show it looks like maybe they’re just tired of doing it and are just going through the motions of meeting their contractual obligation. Could this be their last season?

Thanks.

I don’t watch any Hollywood movies. It’s violent nonsense.

I just watch the NFL.

I’m a Cowboy fan. Tony Romo is fun to watch. I have a concussion and brain damage from banging my head against the wall though when he chokes after playing a great game.

Agree - this one wasn’t that funny except in small places - the Mr. Mackey scenes were good and the Cartman family was cute - but the larger point was totally missed.

They usually do nail the topic from a libertarian perspective.

So much so that I think their recipe is:

1. Take CATO scholars talking points
2. Add pop culture references to recent movies
3. Use their natural God given comical satirical abilities
4. Try to offend everyone equally

Trey Parker has been the primary writer for years, much more so than Matt Stone. What’s interesting this year is that Bill Hader, formerly of SNL, is on the South Park staff full-wime. I wonder if he’s bringing more of a lefty view to the show now.

Does anybody think the circle Cartman painted around himself at the end was a reference to The Obama and his “red line”? That was the first thing I thought of.
