In Canada, We Get South Park Episodes Late

But now, thanks to Youtube, I don't feel like a some second class Westerner.

South Park makes fun of Atheists. Here is part one of Go God Go. Some of it is hilarious, some of it is funny, and some of it agitates me in a very uncomfortable sort of way. Youtube will most likely take this down fast, so watch it while you can. It comes in three short segments:








Part two will be aired in the USA next week. Hopefully the Youtubians will allow me to view it as well. I get over 200 friggin channels but the Canadian Comedy Central channel is two to three months behind. Time to get back in my igloo.

  1. Based on this I am not sure they are making fun of "atheists" per se. Just making fun of certain types of religious fundamentalists and certain type of atheists.

  2. I think a good point to take away from it is that atheists are not immune from joining together into violent collectivist factions.

    What Trey and Matt missed is that without religion, there is no more religious justification for the violence.

  4. For future reference there are now multiple youtube-esqe sites, most of which do not react nearly as fast as youtube to copyright infringement issues. One in particular (dailymotion.com) contains every single episode of South Park and all sorts of other programs.

    I found the whole thing downright hilarious, and just a little bit uncomfortable.

  5. The 6 month delay in episodes and previous lack of Tivo support were my major gripes with the Dominion of Canada.

    I was going to file a motion with the UN Human rights commission but because it was not Israel related they couldn't fit it in their calendar... same goes for Sudan apparently. Plus getsouthpark.com rocks.

    My favorite eposide still is the Paris Hilton "whore-off" and Tom Cruizes coming out of the closet. They are brilliant!

  6. I must be getting old. I too found some of it uncomfortable (the naughty bits not the atheist/theist bits).

    Thanks for posting it. And thanks to craig and jordan.

  7. Funny thing about the YouTube South Park segments is that watching the segments lampooning Mel Gibson and Steve Irwin actually got me interested in watching South Park on tv.

    The Atheist episode was funny, but the scenes with Dawkins and "Mrs." Garrison having sex was difficult to watch. Let's see where they go with it in Part 2.

  9. I did get a real kick out their spoof of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. The only thing missing was Tweekie going "Biddy-biddy-biddy. Hello Eric."

  10. My biggest dissapointment were the Muslim cartoon episodes. While I liked the concept, the two-part episode just wasn't very funny.

    The great thing about South Park is the insanely little time it takes to get from production to air. Within a month of a major incident, South Park has a spoof on it.

    Unfortinately, sometimes they are a little quick on the draw and should take a few more weeks to clean up the script.

  12. Thanks Roya, I think South Park outdid themselves. The two parter was one of the most well thought out episodes ever.
