South Park - Dances With Smurfs

If you get the chance, you need to watch this week's episode of South Park "Dances with Smurfs" which airs again on Comedy Central tonight at 10:30p, Sun 11/15 at 11p and finally Mon 11/16 at 2a, all times est. or click here to watch it on line now.

South Park follows "The F Word" episode, which I thought was balanced but ultimately not the best argument for reclaiming or the ever changing meaning of hate words, with an clear and funny attack on Glen Beck, Faux News and their loyal followers.

South Park is usually very blunt in its parodies and criticisms and this one is no different but have an almost subtle beginning - or I was very tired.  Cartman is Beck - or is Beck a copy of Cartman? Carman has been around longer. Wendy is the President, of the student council. And that's about all you need to know. Oh, and there are smurfs.

South Park isn't the must see tv it was 15 years ago but every now and then they find some of their old magic.

  2. Just finished watching this one. South Park is one of our favorites, though we haven't seen most of the new episodes. It is hard to keep that magic going. I knew Wendy would have Cartman create his own noose. Loved the Cartman/Beck parallel.
