South Park Season 14

You won't hear me say this about many things, but I will openly admit that when it comes to South Park, I am a total obsessive fanboy. I know a lot of people hate it. I know that despite its razor-sharp satire on politics, religion, and social issues it remains, in the eyes of many viewers, a show about badly animated little kids cussing and telling fart jokes. I've had plenty of people look at me like I must have the maturity level of a 12-year-old to still be such a huge fan of the show, but I don't care. South Park is, in my humble opinion, both more intelligent and more entertaining than anything else on television today.

So naturally I was excited for the season 14 DVD release yesterday. I own all the previous seasons, as well as copies of both the original shorts, so it was a simple matter of fact that I would go buy this as well. Unfortunately, no local stores had it in last night. A Wal-Mart employee told me it would be released at midnight, but evidently no copies came in on the trucks that night. Well, I just got back from there and now I have the newest addition to my collection in hand. Speaking of which, there are a couple episodes I wasn't able to catch on southparkstudios.com, so I'm going to go watch those right now.

Oh, and in unrelated news, a girl I know from school here invited me to go see Nunslaughter with her and another friend next month, so I guess now I've got my next show coming up soon.

***EDIT: After watching episode 201, all I can say is fuck Comedy Central. The asinine double-standard for censorship they exhibit on that episode makes their treatment of previous Muhammad issues look reasonable by comparison. The two-part episodes 200 and 201 were some of the best material South Park has ever offered, but the network screwed them over royally.***


  1. Nunslaughter is awesome. Enjoy the show.

  2. I intend to. I've heard very little from them, but it should be fun.

  3. You're absolutely right about South Park being brilliant. It's the conscience of our generation, as odd as it may sound. You're also right about them pussing out and, in effect, encouraging terrorism and the threat of terrorism.

  4. Glad to hear somebody agree with me.
