Quick spoilers for last night's lucky 13th "South Park" season premiere (which you can watch here if you missed it) coming up just as soon as I pretend like I've never, ever watched "Grey's Anatomy"...
Thirteen seasons in, I pretty much tend to check in on "South Park" only for the season premieres, or for memorable events (though the latest election ep was a disappointment), or when I've heard from people after the fact that they did something amazing.
I'm not sure I'd put "The Ring" into that spread-the-word last category, in that its targets -- the Jonas Brothers, and the Disney company for using them to sell sex to little girls with impunity -- were so easy to hit. But the scenes with a foul-mouthed, violent Mickey Mouse stomping on one of the Jonii while lecturing them on their place in his evil corporate empire are going to give me nightmares for a long time -- not least because my daughter still watches the occasional "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" episode -- and in some ways that's the mark of a classic "South Park." If I'm not being horrified (by Mickey, and by the sexually-aggressive preschool girls) on some level, they're not doing their jobs, are they?
What did everybody else think?
