South Park Releases Full Version of Fake Lorde Song

  Earlier this month, South Park did an episode about Lorde that posited that not only is she older than she says, but she's actually Stan's dad. Since then, Lorde her self has said she thought it was " really funny ." And now the fine folks from South Park released the full version of the song they played at the end of the episode, which was actually sung by Sia. Below, listen to the fake Lorde song and watch the real Lorde sing the "I am Lorde, yeah, yeah, yeah" line from the episode. Does anyone like the imitation better than Lorde's actual music? And if so, are you also super into Joe's O's?   http://www.vulture.com/2014/10/south-park-releases-full-fake-lorde-song.html

'South Park' 'Game of Thrones' parody trilogy finale teased in two epic clips

Warning: Normal "South Park" levels of inappropriateness in both clips. The final installment in "South Park's" "Game of Thrones" parody trilogy airs Dec. 4 on Comedy Central. In two epics teasers from the upcoming episode, titled "Titties and Dragons," fans can get a sense of where the "Black Friday Trilogy" is heading. The above video shows George R.R. Martin conducting a choir of men singing the "Game of Thrones" theme song by using the word "wiener." Because why not. Below, a different promo shows the Black Friday war finally coming to a head as the doors to the mall finally open. "The synopsis for 'Titties and Dragons' reads, The doors to the mall will finally open this week and only one gaming device will be the winner on an all-new episode of 'South Park' titled 'Titties and Dragons,' premiering Wednesday, December 4 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central.

SideReel Throws a Holiday Party

This December, we’re wishing for peace on Earth (but not necessarily on television). Not to go all Grinch on you, but there can be a lot of letdown around the holidays. It's too cold. It's too warm. There's not enough snow. There's too much damn snow. You got bad presents. You didn't get any presents. Well, whatever, there's at least one place where you won't be disappointed this time of year: television! Was there ever a greater gift to Earth than the concept of the Christmas episode? Sure, world peace would be nice, but until then, let's take what we can get.   Doctor Who  S5E14: A Christmas Carol British shows all seem to have Christmas specials, and given its long history (even if we just count the rebooted series), this entire list could have been filled with Doctor Who episodes. That being said, this 2010 entry co-starring Dumbledore II himself, Michael Gambon, is the most accessible to non-Whovians, as it's based on the structure of the Dickens classic from which it takes its name. It does use one of those ourobouros-like plot devices that writer/producer Steven Moffat so loves, but the episode is so fun and bright, disbelief is easy to suspend.   South Park  S8E14: Woodland Critter Christmas As with any episode of South Park , this holiday-themed profanityfest is not for the easily offended. Between the immaculate conception happening just slightly further down the food chain (namely at the porcupine level), and Kyle expressing a desire to become the Anti-Christ (to make things better for the Jews), one might even consider this an... ANTI-Christmas special (see what I did there?). Also, there's an AIDS joke. Now don't say I didn't warn you.     The Twilight Zone  S3E14: 5 Characters in Search of an Exit I don't know about the rest of you, but Christmas always makes me think of Sartre's existentialist play "No Exit." It's probably because I saw this episode at a tender age. 5 individuals, in various occupation-specific costumes awake to find themselves trapped in a smooth cylinder with... NO EXIT — except the open top, from which comes a horrible ringing sound. I won't spoil the Christmas connection as it would give away the entire twist, but I will say that you can also look at it as a commentary on spending days trapped in a house with family. After all, hell is, as Sartre famously opined, other people.   The O.C.  S1E10: The Best Chrismukkah Ever Big sigh.  OK, I don't know, guys. In this VERY SPECIAL EPISODE, Seth Cohen teaches his pals (and the world!) the true meaning of Chrismukkah — a word invented for the express purpose of stealing Festivus' thunder (I'm just spitballing here; I have no idea what the true motivations were). That's all. But it's important to the millennials (except me) because the characters were all inoffensively attractive and had rich person problems to which we should all aspire. Hey, maybe that is the true meaning of Chrismukkah!   Community  S3E10: Regional Holiday Music Honestly, this is probably the meanest episode Community has ever made — and that's saying something. From its outright hatred of Glee (we find out the Greendale equivalent of the Glee club was murdered) to its skewering of the earnest happiness that comes with most Christmas-themed episodes, we're given a view into the cold, black heart of this cult series. But its original songs (including personal favorite "Baby Boomer Santa," which transcends everything that's come before and mercilessly rains blows on the idea that the Baby Boom generation changed the world) are worthy entries to the Christmas music cannon.   The King of Queens  S5E11: Mentalo Case There are certain wounds that time can't heal. I, for instance, wanted a Nintendo system as a child. My parents refused as it would "rot [my] brain" (though apparently in a way that watching 10 straight hours of television wouldn't). Doug Heffernan, the titular King of the title of the show, affably played by Kevin James, is in much the same boat here. Tasked with finding a copy of a lost childhood toy, Carrie (Leah Remini) buys a knockoff, shattering Doug's dreams all over again. Rosebud ....   Creature Comforts  S1E13: Merry Christmas This Christmas special from cult British animation studio Aardman Animations is practically the definition of exuberant. Concept: Interview the British public about their feelings on the season and then show them coming out of the mouths of adorable, stop-motion animals. Guaranteed to put a smile on the face of even the most curmudgeonly of critics (e.g. me), Creature Comforts exemplifies the very best qualities of the Christmas spirit.     Seinfeld  S9E10: The Strike A Festivus for the rest of us! And with that sentence, a new holiday truly was born. What was once just another brick in the Jenga stack that was George Costanza's traumatic life is now a full-fledged cultural phenomenon, to the point that the Google query "buy festivus pole" returns more than 66k results. It's a Festivus miracle!     Leah E. Friedman  is the editor of SideReel.com. She has made a donation in your name to The Human Fund.  You can follow her musings on  Twitter .

'South Park' parodies 'Game of Thrones' again with visit to George R.R. Martin

Hot off its first "Game of Thrones" parody, "South Park" got the Westeros treatment for a second week in a row with the episode "A Song of A** and Fire," which aired Nov. 20. A hilarious clip from the episode, above, shows Butters show up at author George R.R. Martin's house to try to find out "what happens with the dragons show up" on "Game of Thrones." In recent weeks,Martin has commented in interviews that he hates it when situations like this happen, so it's no wonder that Butters gets turned away at his door in the episode. The "Game of Thrones" references didn't stop with the episode title (a parody on the series' name "A Song of Ice and Fire") and this clip. In one scene, Martin decides to change his pizza order from two to five pizzas as a nod to his actual tendency to keep extending the length of the "Game... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/south-park-parodies-game-of-thrones-again-with-visit-to-george-rr-martin.html

'South Park' thinks 'Game of Thrones' needs less 'gay wieners'

"South Park" took on "Game of Thrones" in its Nov. 13 episode, and though much of the parody of the HBO fantasy series was directed at gamers' division between the new Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles, that's not the only nod the Comedy Central animated series made at "Game of Thrones." It also drew an awareness to the show's tendency to show "gay wieners," though that complaint might not be totally valid. "I've started watching 'Game of Thrones,'" Butters tells Cartman in the above clip. "Well, it's pretty good, I guess. But have you ever noticed that almost every time they show a guy's wiener, that guy's character is gay? ... It's just that they have a lot of girls' boobs and vaginas and stuff, but most times they show a man's wiener, it's because that guy's in a love scene with another guy. You think it's because gay wieners are less threatening... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/south-park-thinks-game-of-thrones-needs-less-gay-wieners.html
