Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Since this topic refuses to stay on topic, I'll add my 2˘.

South Park is hit or miss, but given the speed at which the shows are written, their hit record is astoundingly high. The episode "You Have 0 Friends" is the most brilliant swipe at "social media" I've seen in the media. Likewise, I thought the South Park movie was very smart, taking the very controversy over this rude cartoon and making it the plot, commenting on how people will go to political extremes to "save the children" instead of taking the time to actually talk to them.

So, sure, it's not always funny, and some people find it never funny, but the Court Jester always offends somebody.
