Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Funny, looking over the last couple pages of this thread, you seem to be at the center of it going off-topic, so I'm going to suggest you take your own advice before admonishing me or anyone else here.

And by suggest, I mean the same way a state trooper "suggests" you follow the speed limit.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

For the record, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators and producers of South Park, tend to skew to the political right (in fact, there was a book that came out a few years ago entitled "South Park Conservatism") and a careful viewing of the show will reveal that some of the harshest barbs are actually reserved for liberals and their sacred cows (not that the right is safe, they open fire on stupidity and pomposity wherever it's found). Barbra Steisand in particular is unabashedly reviled. And in their movie "Team America: World Police", they make a point of making some of the most outspoken liberal actors look like complete idiots at every opportunity.

So, on that note...

I can see why the adults walked out of the cinema in that skit. I certainly would have. And demand a refund!

Quite so. Al Gore in particular is the subject of some of their harshest wit. The "Man Bear Pig" episode absolutely skewers Gore. "I'm cereal!" But the amazing thing is how they can nail someone weeks, months or even years before the rest of the media catches on, ref. Mel Gibson (who they portrayed as a nutcase) and even Avatar (which they turned into a Smurf movie).

They're very quick. They wrote the Avatar/Smurf thing before the movie was released.

They've got very little use for contemporary American right-wing politics, including American militarism and "social values" conservatism which they mock mercilessly. They tend toward libertarianism and particularly like to make fun of celebrity and of any and all religious institutions. Their basic credo is that "it has to be okay to make fun of everything or it's not okay to make fun of anything."

They usually write the episode the week they put it together.

Which is the way it should be.

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.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Yes, the FaceBook episode was brilliant, especially the ending. The World of Warcraft episode was perfection, as was the Return of the Lord of the Rings.

So, how's the editing of Act IV coming along?

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

I haven't watched South Park in an age, but pretty much agree with Maurice. When it's funny, it's hilarious. When it's not, it's a train wreck.

Oddly, I found Team America dull and deeply unfunny.

And yes, Act IV? Maurice?
