South Park Series 14
We are currently three episodes into the 14th series of South Park and I'm happy to say that the irreverent animated satire is on as good form as ever. Episode 1401, Sexual Healing, is a great opener, a tour de force of litigious daring, taking out Tiger Woods, interactive computer games, golf, sex education and innumerable discretion-denuded celebrities like a sniper with a gun full of shot. The second and third episodes cast us straight back into the sewer of their best work, with running gags concerning vomit and distended testicles. It sounds gross. It is. And it's satirically clinical. Long may it continue.
