With all the Comic-Con 2014 excitement swirling about, it can be difficult to remember that life will go on beyond July, and summer certainly holds more of our favorite TV premieres to come. Comedy Central's long-running 'South Park' has always seemed few and far between with its airing, but at long last, the 18th season for Stan, Kyle, Kenny, Cartman and the rest of the town has a premiere date!
Despite being unusually broken up by the holiday weekend's actual Black Friday, it seems 'South Park' will indeed carry on its 'Game of Thrones' parody into an epic conclusion this Wednesday with the aptly-titled "Titties and Dragons." The war between Xbox One and PS4 comes to a bloody conclusion, but what can we see by the first trailer?
Last night's 'South Park' tribute to 'Game of Thrones' will apparently continue into a third installment on December 4 (referenced within the episode itself as shifting "Black Friday,") but Butters' trip to George R.R. Martin's house bore unexpected fruit: Check out the 'Game of Thrones' theme redone with a disgusting 'South Park' twist!
This week, comedy fans all over the world were pleasantly shocked to learn that the surviving members of the Monty Python comedy troupe were reuniting for a new live stage show. The details remain tightly under wraps, but the mere thought of John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle and Terry Jones collaborating on anything should send chills down the spines of people with taste everywhere.
What's even more incredible is how their reunion came about in the first place. It seems that this new project came together at the urging of 'South Park' and 'Book of Mormon' creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
Last week 'South Park' took us by surprise in crafting a 'Game of Thrones' parody wrapped around the concept of "Black Friday," but not so surprising as to learn that the story will continue in a second episode! Watch what happens when Butters takes his 'Game of Thrones' grievances to George R.R. Martin himself in the first clip from "A Song of Ass and Fire!"
'South Park' has given fans a few causes for alarm in recent years, with series creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker cutting episode orders per season and individual episodes seemingly foretelling an imminent end to the series, but its latest scare proves less than electrifying. October 16 episode "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers" has been pushed back a week, with a repeat to air in its place, following an unexpected power outage at South Park Studios.
Last week we caught our first glimpse of the new 'South Park' season previewing the newsworthy topics likely for target by the Emmy-winning series, but at long last season 17 premiere "Let Go, Let Gov" is nearly upon us. The first new 'South Park' footage of the season has emerged, but who becomes the first target of Cartman's wrath when the acclaimed satire finally returns?
'South Park' doesn't lend itself to promotional campaigns that starts months before a premiere in the same manner as other shows, though we're glad to see Matt Stone and Trey Parker back in the saddle for the upcoming seventeenth season, set to premiere on September 25. To that end, Comedy Central's first teaser for the coming premiere reveals a number of potential targets for parody, so what's the latest from 'South Park' season 17?
First, there's a strange question: how and why are Warner Bros. and Paramount co-producing Christopher Nolan's sci-fi epic, 'Interstellar'? Then there's the strange answer: because Warner Bros. wanted to be part of Nolan's next film so much that they were willing to give another studio the rights to future 'Friday the 13th' and 'South Park' movies to make it happen.
