Those familiar with South Park know that one of its greatest competitive advantages over other shows, animated and non-animated, is its ability to address super-current events thanks to a production schedule that has them writing scripts as near as six days out from the air date.

This became somewhat common knowledge after the fun and insightful documentary Six Days to Air, which follows a typical week for the South Park creators leading up to an episode.

The highwire act finally hit a snag when South Park Studios in Santa Monica lost power and several crucial hours of productivity on Tuesday night, which was probably crucial animating and editing time for Wednesday’s show.

All is not lost. The episode will air on October 23, and the Scott Tenorman episode aired last night, which might be one of the best episodes in the history of television. So, all good. We can wait.

“Having worked with several different studios over the years, we came to realize that our favorite people in the world are ourselves.”

That was the official announcement from Trey Parker and Matt Stone that they are moving ahead with plans to open their own $300 million production studio. Using their own money, they opened Important Studios which they will use to produce movie, television and theater projects. In other words, they’re going to start creating the type of projects they’ve always wanted to see, free of any studio involvement.

That’s not to say they ever copped to studio pressure in the past but I still get the feeling that the leash is off now. Should we go ahead and give them their own network? Might be nice to get out of the way now. (NY Times)

Over the years, South Park has had enough musical guest stars to make Coachella queef. And those musicians the show either couldn’t get or had no interest in paying were simply imitated… usually poorly. The results, though, were always hilarious and always memorable.

So take a look at the musical guests of South Park, and let us know who you think got sh*t on the worst. And if we left anyone out, tell us in the comment section.

Comedy Central’s hit show South Park has inspired all kinds of merchandise, from T-shirts to actual Cheesy Poofs to South Park Airlines, which provides direct flights from Atlanta to Denver on planes painted to look like various South Park characters and flight attendants dressed as Chef. Now, there’s going to be an RPG (or “role-playing game”) based on the show which is sure to either be mocked or completely ignored on South Park.

Players are categorized by five unique classes: “Fighter, mage, thief, cleric and Jew.” Yes, “Jew” is one of the classes in the game. And as you can see from the picture, it looks like the people at Obsidian Entertainment have nailed the visual style of the show in addition to the sense of humor. So, if you’re into RPGs, and you like South Park, start stocking up on bandwidth and Doritos now. (Rock Paper Shotgun)

It is with a heavy heart that I join the world in saying goodbye, Dear Leader. May your now superhuman existence carry you past the need for a mortal body, and may your glory continue to shine on People’s Glorious Repobulic of The Glory of North Korea. Glory.

The word in Koreatown is that Kim Jun Il will be succeeded by his son Lil’ Kim Kim Jung Un. May he be as batshit crazy as his father, creating a cult of personality that would make Ron Artest blush.

Glory.

Lest you feel that Jung Il isn’t getting a fair shake in the media (who would really argue that?), compare him to these tyrannical depictions and see how he stacks up.

I heart dictators.

The Great Dictator – Adolf Hitler

There doesn’t seem to be much rhyme or reason to the “dictators” that appear at the beginning of the original Naked Gun film. We have Qadaffi, the Ayatollah, Yasir Arafat, and…Mikhail Gorbechav? Perhaps I didn’t give enough weight to the cold war in the late 80’s. Oh well.

Frank Drebin, for reasons indeterminate and unimportant, simply beats up all of these leaders in an unspecified middle eastern location. And after that ass-whoopin’, we never again found any of those men in America. Nice work, Police Squad.

Good news in the sleepy mountain town of South ParkComedy Central announced today that it will be picking up the Trey Parker and Matt Stone‘s sick creation for another three seasons, which locks it down through its 20th season in 2016. Even if we’re all going to be dead by then, it’s nice to know that the groundbreaking show will live on, making fun of hybrid vehicles and natural disasters long after we’re gone.

This should quash rumors (often propagated by Stone and Parker themselves) that they were getting sick of the series and their attention was turning to other projects, like their The Book of Mormon musical and maybe some sort of strange continuation of That’s My Bush! I wonder what changed their mind. Maybe it was the dumptrucks of money that Comedy Central drove up to their houses. Or the siren call of art.

But probably the cash.

The post Trey Parker And Matt Stone Working On A ‘Book Of Mormon’ Film… Eventually appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Naturally, the success of The Book Of Mormon on the Broadway stage is leading to a big screen adaptation. But not so fast. Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone confirmed that the film project is in the works with the show’s producer Scott Rudin on board and Parker in the director’s chair. “The great thing is, a lot of Broadway teams would have to go team up with a Hollywood producer and bring on a Hollywood director, but Trey’s a director and Scott’s a great producer. We’ve all made movies. So it’s kind of cool, it can stay in the same family.”

So, when can we expect to see it in theaters? Not until it’s done cleaning up on stage sadly. “Hopefully it will have a big run and a big tour and then we can do the movie in several years,” says Parker.

Bummer. Soon enough just isn’t soon enough. Can we get a Party Down or Arrested Development movie to tide us over in the meantime? We’re asking nicely. (EW)

With the state of music being what it is today (I have no idea what that statement means, other than some people probably love today’s music and some hate it), it’s hard not to wonder why musicians, good and bad, can’t get their house in order and simply be more like those great fellas we see in the pictures.

I would give forty-two Black Eyed Peas for one Wyld Stallyns. And unless I’m off-base, I think many Screen Junkies readers would, too. Sure, some of these bands are pretty ridiculous, but look me in the eye and tell me they’re not all sixty-two times better and more interesting than Mumford and Sons.

God, I hate Mumford and Sons.

8. Dr. Funke’s 100 Percent Natural Good-Time Family Band Solution – Arrested Development

Sure, they’re misguided corporate whores, but who wouldn’t pay $20 bucks to go see these guys live and witness the train wreck that is Tobias Funke’s onstage banter. I mean, Amy Poehler is a huge fan, and who doesn’t love Amy Poehler?

7. Hey That’s My Bike – Reality Bites

This Ethan Hawke-fronted band certainly has the most indie cred of any band on this list. He did the whole brooding joyless musician thing before even Cobain did it, and I could totally see a generation of Williamsburg hipster fans, even today, calling themselves “Hey That’s My Bike-ers.”

Or Hawke’s Troy Dyer could just be a slightly earlier incarnation of that asshat Jared Leto. Whatevs.

Jame and I attende South Park Town Square this afternoon, and took a bunch of pics of our trip. To celebrate the year of the fan for the long-running show, Comedy Central put together a replica of the tiny town of South Park, CO. As you can see, most of the familiar inhabitants were meandering about. I replaced Kyle in the picture with the kids on the couch, as I didn’t feel it needed two Jews in it. Then Jame mocked me by placing Kyle on his lap. A parade with a Chinese dragon Cartman kicked off the events befor the town was flooded with Comic-Con attendees.

Many took the depressing end of South Park’s most recent episode “You’re Getting Old” to mean that Trey Parker and Matt Stone were done with the series and would find a new way to piss off Muslim extremists and Sean Penn. However, that’s not the case. The creators have just signed on to remain with the series through 2013.

However, there’s no word whether “You’re Getting Old” will set a new tone for the series going forward. It can be interpreted that Parker and Stone have grown wary of cynicism and will move the show in a less snarky direction. Or it could be that the episode was a one-off designed to spark debate. Either way, I’m sure that Adam Sandler movies will still look like shit.

South Park will return on October 5th with all new episodes. (Entertainment Weekly)

Tonight, the 15th season of “South Park” begins its run on Comedy Central. And in typical”South Park” fashion, the premier, titled “The HumancentiPad,” will use scatological humor to satirize current events and pop culture. Or, to put it another way, the show will be about iPads and poopy buttholes. But the episode, which combines Apple‘s iPad with the plot from The Human Centipede, is hardly the first to feature, for lack of a better phrase, “hot anal action.” Since the show’s inception, the anus has featured prominently in Trey Parker and Matt Stone‘s plot lines. With that in mind, we’ve compiled the nine greatest ass jokes in the history of “South Park.”

Prehistoric Iceman – January 20th, 1999

In this episode, Steve Irwin (a.k.a. The Crocodile Hunter) travels around searching for animal anuses to stick his thumb into. Later in the episode, Irwin is killed, which might seem pretty insensitive, until you realize the episode aired seven years before his actual death. Of course, they did mock his death in a later episode, so I guess my point is moot.

The Death Camp of Tolerance – November 20, 2002

The subplot of this episode chronicles the adventures of Lemmiwinks, a gerbil who has been inserted into Mr. Slave’s ass. The ghosts of other unfortunate animals that have perished in Mr. Slave’s bowels attempt to aide Lemmiwinks in his escape.

The Entity – November 21, 2001

After his disgust with the hassles of air travel boils over, Mr. Garrison invents a new means of transportation. The only problem is, the driver of the new vehicle is forced to insert a rod up his anus. But while it may be uncomfortable, it still beats dealing with airports.

Cartman Gets an Anal Probe – August 13, 1997

This is the episode that started it all. By that I mean it’s the first episode of the series, and also the first episode involving the anus. And with a title like “Cartman Gets an Anal Probe,” it was easy to see where the series was headed.

Bloody Mary – December 7, 2005

“South Park” is known for it’s controversial topics, but this episode involving a statue of the Virgin Mary bleeding out its ass was so controversial that the studio would not let it air uncensored out of fear of a terrorist attack. Oh, wait. It aired without editing, and no one resorted to violence. I must have mixed up my religions.

What, What (In the Butt) – April 2, 2008

In this memorable episode, Butters sings Samwell’s “What What (In the Butt)” in an attempt to make a viral video. In my opinion, it’s superior to the original in every way.

Spontaneous Combustion – April 14, 1999

When Kenny dies (again) from spontaneous combustion, Stan’s father traces the explosion to a methane buildup. In order to mitigate the threat, the residents of South Park are then required to fart regularly. Fart jokes are always funny.

The Death of Eric Cartman – April 13, 2005

When Butters begins seeing visions of his supposedly dead friend, his parents seek medical help. Linking the visions to a traumatic event in Butters’ past, the doctors set out to discover the root of the problem…by shoving a giant robot arm up his ass.

Red Hot Catholic Love – July 3, 2002

In a fitting end to a list about anal scenes, this episode features Cartman shoving food up his ass in order to crap out his mouth. In the context of the show, it’s a metaphor mocking certain secularists for their condescending attitude toward religion. Out of context, it’s still funny because the poop comes out their mouths.

Bonus – Tonight’s Episode: The Human CentiPad

The post 11 Greatest Songs Of Trey Parker And Matt Stone appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>

Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s new Broadway musical, The Book of Mormon, is being called a surprise hit. But anyone who is surprised by its success must not have been paying attention. It has been lauded by critics for dealing with dark topics such as AIDS and third-world genocide, while at the same time maintaining the irreverent yet surprisingly sweet tone of a classic Broadway show. But these are the hallmarks of Parker and Stone, who have been hard at work crafting their unique style for well over a decade. With songs such as “Everyone Has AIDS,” and “Hang the Bastard” under their belt, the transition to Broadway almost seems like an afterthought. But in honor of their success, I’ve compiled my 11 favorite Parker/Stone songs. If you don’t like my list, go fuck your uncle.

“Hang the Bastard” – Cannibal the Musical

Who else besides Parker and Stone could make a song about genital warts so damn catchy? OK, maybe Eazy-E, but he’s dead.

“Salty Chocolate Balls” -”South Park

While Isaac Hayes ended up leaving “South Park” on bad terms, his run with the show was hilarious. And while he’ll be better remembered for singing the theme from Shaft, I’ll always remember him for his “Salty Chocolate Balls.”

“Circle of Poo” – “South Park”

Not only is this Lion King spoof about talking shit hilarious, but it somehow manages to be genuinely heartfelt.

“Uncle Fucker” – South Park – Bigger, Longer, Uncut

This song from the South Park movie sets the stage for an epic battle between not only parents and television, but also the U.S. and Canada.

“Now You’re a Man” – Orgasmo

What makes a man? It’s probably the titties.

“Blame Canada” – South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut

As mentioned above, when the children of South Park begin using foul language, it isn’t long before their parents “Blame Canada.” This song was actually nominated for an Oscar, but lost out to Phil Collins.

“I’m So Ronrey” – Team America: World Police

In this song from Team America, Stone and Parker mock Kim Jong-il with a mix of puppets and Asian stereotypes. Offensive? Maybe. Hilarious? Definitely.

“Everyone Has AIDS” – Team America: World Police

Not many people can get away with mocking the AIDS epidemic. But as always, Parker and Stone manage to pull it off.

“America, Fuck Yeah” – Team America: World Police

This list probably could have been comprised of only Team America songs, but I wanted to have some variety. That being said, the jingoistic anthem that is “America, Fuck Yeah” is certainly some of their best work, bar none.

“Gay Fish” – “South Park”

In my book, any song that paints Kanye West as a dirty fish fucker should win a god damn Grammy.

Bob’s Burgers” will never cause this kind of hubbub.

Zachary Chesser, the young man who for months proclaimed that Trey Parker and Matt Stone deserved to be killed for their portrayal on “South Park” of Muhammed in a bear suit, has been sentenced hardcore. The judge also had to take into account that Chesser supplied information on various cartoonists who may or may not have been planning to draw a likeness of Muhammed (which is forbidden by Islam) to terrorists.

Someone woke up on the wrong side of bed for for four straight months!

The 20 year-old will be posting up in a federal prison for 25 years, where he will have all sorts of time to be outraged about people drawing Muhammed in bear suits. This might be the stiffest price a person has ever paid for not getting a joke. (THR)

Muslims love themselves some Prophet Mohammad and many regard any depiction of the Prophet as offensive. For the extremists, that offense is punishable by death. You should see what they do when you break the rules of Fight Club. Chesser was prevented from boarding a flight earlier this month from New York to Uganda. It was his intention to then travel on to Somalia where he would join the terrorist organization al Shabaab. Chesser became interested in Islam in 2008, but claims to not believe in or condone acts of terrorism or violence. Unless you consider posting death threats accompanied by mutilated corpses on the Internet as a show of support. That's a gray area. (Reuters)

Reasons to watch: FROM THE OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: "The Ghosthunters head to Chicago to investigate claims of disembodied voices arguing which isn’t totally easy to fake in post by the way. Why did I mention that? Now everyone’s going to know how fake this show is. Oh God! I can’t stop. AAARRRGGGGHHH!!!!!!"
 
Mythbusters
Network: Discovery
Time: 9 – 10PM

REAL WORLD/ROAD RULES CHALLENGE
Network: MTV
Time: 10 – 11PM
 
Reasons to watch: "Okay Tonya. Fantastic stuff. That’s just great. Now when you slapped Veronica, it was bad for sound. Would you mind giving her another big old whack upside the head? Great.

SOUTH PARK
Network: Comedy Central
Time: 10 – 10:30PM
 
Reasons to watch: The boys pursue careers as professional wrestlers after watching their first live match. That’s fine boys. But be careful. No matter how enticing that lifestyle is, I want you to promise to never get into a car being driven by Nick Hogan.

Nip/Tuck Season Six premiere, a Maurice Sendak doc, and more drunken yelling on the RW/RR Challenge.
 
CHECK OUT WHAT TO WATCH AFTER THE JUMP
 
NOTE: ALL TIMES EASTERN AND PACIFIC!!!

 
 
TELL THEM ANYTHING YOU WANT: A PORTRAIT OF MAURICE SENDAK
Network: HBO
Time: 7 – 7:45AM
 
Reasons to watch: In anticipation of the big screen Where the Wild Things Are adaptation, director and ironic facial hair enthusiast Spike Jonze sits down with the book’s author. The two discuss Sendak’s work as well as his upbringing and his obsession with the Lindbergh baby’s kidnapping. Wonder if dude has seen Raising Arizona.
 
NICK SWARDSON: SERIOUSLY, WHO FARTED?
Network: Comedy Central
Time: 9 – 10PM
 
Reasons to watch: Comedian Nick Swardson strives to find the answer to the question posed long ago by a lone, brave t-shirt.
 
NIP/TUCK
Network: FX
Time: 10 – 11PM
 
Reasons to watch: Rose McGowan takes over the role formerly played by BSG’s Starbuck on tonight’s season six opener. Six seasons? How has this show gotten by for so long without any actual nudity?
 
REAL WORLD/ROAD RULES CHALLENGE
Network: MTV
Time: 10 – 11PM
 
Reasons to watch: Tonight on the Douchebag Olympics, tensions continue to grow between Wes and his teammates. And Evan finds love but could he have ulterior motives? No. That wouldn’t happen on a reality show featuring 28 drunken famewhores. Just isn’t plausible.
 
SOUTH PARK
Network: Comedy Central
Time: 10 – 10:30PM
 
Reasons to watch: Butters hopes that his first kiss will curtail the constant teasing he endures from his friends and that he’ll finally be viewed as a man. Is all it takes a kiss these days? Squanto would be pissed if he found this out. He had to kill a wolf with his bare hands while naked in the dead of winter in order to be seen as a man. I’ve never fought a wolf but sucking face behind the Domino’s on East Main Street seems waaayyyy easier.

Whale extinction, stem cell research, sustainability, and Nicolas Cage. Tonight’s TV Preview are all causes once championed by Jerry Bruckheimer.

NOTE: ALL TIMES EASTERN AND PACIFIC!!!

 
 
BIG IDEAS FOR A SMALL PLANET
Network: Sundance Channel
Time: 8 – 8:30PM
 
Reasons to watch: This episode focuses on sustainable furniture with a look at chairs and dressers made out of recycled cardboard. Just think, all this time we’ve been weirded out by the homeless when they had the right idea all along. If you really cared about the environment, you’d be wearing a tin foil necktie and flipping your middle finger up at passing cars.
 
EXPLORER: KINGDOM OF THE BLUE WHALE
Network: National Geographic
Time: 8 – 9PM
 
Reasons to watch: A team of scientists track the nearly extinct blue whales to their rarely seen wintering grounds. If you’re into nature, this looks like a pretty cool front row seat that few people ever get to experience in person. And it’s inexplicably narrated by Magnum P.I. himself, Tom Selleck.
 
NATIONAL TREASURE: BOOK OF SECRETS
Network: ENC
Time: 8 – 10PM
 
Reasons to watch: Watch Nicolas Cage in one of his more ridiculous action performances as he returns to the character of Ben Franklin Gates. In one sequence, Gates intentionally runs a traffic light while holding up an artifact so that the traffic camera will photograph it. From there he merely has to hack into the traffic mainframe to retrieve the picture. That chain of events is simutaneously retarded and more retarded. I would expect something like that from Vin Diesel not from a guy who somehow won an Oscar.
 
WAREHOUSE 13
Network: Syfy
Time: 9 – 10PM
 
Reasons to watch: On a new episode of Warehouse 13 Pete and Myka take on a dead agent’s unfinished mission. It’s gotta be heart-breaking to not complete your life’s work. I hate leaving things unfin
 
South Park
Network: Comedy Central
Time: 9 – 10PM
 
Reasons to watch: If I had to choose my all-time favorite episode of South Park it would probably be tonight’s episode ‘Kenny Dies’. Things take a turn for the melodramatic when Kenny falls ill with an incurable disease. The boys put their differences aside and Cartman springs into action to convince Congress to legalize stem cell research. I could watch this all day. And I think I will thanks to South Park Studios. Bring me Cheetos and hold my calls.

Cold sausage, bowel movements, bowling trophies, Dracula puppets, and a bikini-clad Kristen Bell. If more than one of these turns you on, you’ve got issues my friend. Tonight’s TV preview will try not to judge you.

CHECK OUT WHAT TO WATCH AFTER THE JUMP

NOTE: ALL TIMES EASTERN AND PACIFIC!!!

 

HELL’S KITCHEN
Network:
FOX
Time: 8-9PM

Reasons to watch: The contestants are challenged with making perfectly-proportioned 6-inch sausages. At dinner service, Drew Lachey, John O’Hurley, Tom Green, Melinda Clarke, Chris "Kid" Reid and Kristy Swanson are served cold and salty food. Naturally Gordon Ramsey is not happy. How dare you serve Kristy Swanson salty, cold sausage!


CLASSIC BOWLING: 2007: PBA MOTOR CITY CLASSIC
Network:
ESPN Classic
Time: 9-10PM

Reasons to watch: I’m sure that you’ll never forget November 4th, 2007 as Walter Ray Williams Jr. took home the prize in Taylor, Michigan. I know I certainly won’t. It was like watching The Almighty himself out there on them lanes and the reason I named my little girl Walter Ray Williams Jr. Johnson.


FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL
Network:
Cinemax
Time: 10PM-12AM

Reasons to watch: If you’re a fan of Freaks and Geeks, you’ve known for a long time how talented Jason Segel is. In fact, most of his follow-up work has been on-par as well. The Segel-scripted Sarah Marshall is no exception. Fair warning: it does feature schlong. How much? More than Risky Business, less than Amistad. You’ll survive.
 


SOUTH PARK
Network:
COMEDY CENTRAL
Time: 10:30-11PM

Reasons to watch: Tonight’s episode of the Emmy Award Winning series is titled More Crap. The story follows Stan’s dad as he sets a record for his impressive bowel movement. Not one to be upstaged when it comes to awards, U2′s Bono throws his goofy cowboy hat into the ring. This is a fantastic dressing-down of Bono. How dare he try to help the world?

CONAN
Jeremy Piven, human cannonballs

KIMMEL
Ashton Kutcher, Nigel Lythgoe
