South Pork


Each episode of South Park is produced in a week. Pretty impressive.

I feel about South Park like I do about Family Guy: often very funny, and I like their general irreverence. But often I think it's just too cynical.

I used to like South Park a lot when it first came on. But it seems like whenever I try to watch an episode nowadays, they're always preaching about some pointless thing that I don't really care about. Like, am I really interested in these guys' personal opinion of John Edward? Not really. I think it still has its moments, but not enough for me to watch it on a regular basis.

Yeah. It's a unique show, but it's definitely uneven.

"John Edwards"? Yes, they have definitely crossed over if they now make shows about people I've never even heard about. At least Barbara Streisand I've heard about. Though why they would hate her so much is a bit of a puzzle.

Yeah! And it's funny, cause I usually like shows with a lot of social commentary, like The Boondocks and such. But South Park just chooses the most random things to comment on in my opinion.

because she's a liberal and fox station which runs it is extremely bias agaisn't the left, that's why.
murdock and company despise democrats. fox network is ultra-conservative, didn't you know that?

I did, so do most Americans. They need to boycot that conservative puppet shop.

Perhaps that's just their deliberate style? The royal jester was free to speak precisely because he was officially mad. This allowed him to say, from time to time, important things that nobody else could ever hope to get away with.
I also find SP uneven but interesting through the avalanche of silliness. The first episode was actually made artisanally. Then they kept the style, but had the brilliant idea to produce it with modern means, which allows great plasticity in production. It's barely more complicated to make than writing a stand-up comedy script and playing it once in a puppet theater. Smart.

I have a couple of softwares that allow me to create home-made comic strips of Popeye or the Smurfs, save them and print them. A bit basic, but great fun. The only serious limit is one's own imagination.

"At least Barbara Streisand I've heard about. Though why they would hate her so much is a bit of a puzzle."

Maybe they don't HATE her, but simply find her great humour material. I'd be hard pressed to say who or what "Team America : Word Police" didn't seem to hate or mock. They just poked mindless fun at everybody and everything, both liberal and conservative. Is South Park so different? Deliberate bad taste, that gives unequaled artistic freedom of speech. By essence, I applause to that principle.

"Fox network is ultra-conservative, didn't you know that?"

Really? I would never have guessed from their news broadcasts. ;o)

Big breasted chick,
Please forgive me in advance, but in my current state of mind I can't resist being inspired South-Park style. So here are a couple of VERY bad puns for which I'll surely burn in Satan and Saddam's bed :
"Hm... that name reminds me of what I had at last night's supper. Very tasty, too."
"Let me guess, you're sexy and self-confident, but you're not a DOMAI model, right?"
Feel free to FLAME me if offended, I already expect to sizzle anyway.
I'm sorry, okay? No offense, the devil made me do it. "Watching South Pork corrupted my clean liberal mind."
(8-)
