You’ll probably soon know someone who is. South Park recently returned for a fourteenth season, and has already poked fun at Tiger Woods, Sarah Jessica Parker, and the book Catcher In The Rye. This week it finally set it’s sight on social networking site Facebook in an episode called You Have 0 Friends. As the boys attempt to outdo each other, Kyle adds the lonely Kip Drordy to his Facebook friends. A person known to everyone on the site for having zero friends. As soon as he does this, everyone else starts to ‘unfriend’ Kyle at an alarming rate…

South Park Kip Drordy Tron Scene

It was another great episode, taking some funny swipes at certain aspects of the social networking craze. Even if perhaps it’s a slightly easy target. It also features some great sequences in a Tron-like environment. These showed Stan getting “sucked in to Facebook” after all his best efforts to avoid it. The character of Kip is great, and the time he spends with his new “friend” offers up some brilliant jokes. You can see a brief clip from the episode at the end of this article.

Will The Real Kip Drordy Please Stand Up?

As soon as the episode ended, not surprisingly, one of my first thoughts was to see if there was now a “real” Kip Drordy on Facebook, and I wasn’t disappointed. Of course there was, set up hours earlier, although if the page was set up by the show’s creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, I have no idea. I guess probably not, but it doesn’t really matter. As with so many Facebook viral trends, the number of fans is growing by the minute. A few hundred when I first looked, and up to almost 50,000 a day later. This will surely go up further after the episode airs in the UK (tonight) on the Comedy Central channel (Sky 126, Virgin 132). Become A Fan Of Kip Drordy On Facebook South Park Season 14 continues for another three weeks before it takes it’s usual mid-season break, and will then return later in the year. Watch it if you can, it’s still the only show where no-one, or no thing is safe from lampooning.

Arrested Development Season 5 – False Hands, False Legs

US TV comedy Arrested Development, the story of the dysfunctional Bluth family, reached it’s conclusion on Netflix just weeks ago. Did it go out in a blaze of glory? I’d have to say no. It limped towards the finishing line as if it had a false leg. Not the false hand belonging to one of the main the characters, Buster Bluth. The show’s first three seasons on Fox received huge critical acclaim. However the shows’s fourth and fifth series on Netflix have received lukewarm receptions from fans and tv critics alike. Early Days Arrested Development first aired on the Fox

Archer – The Secret (Agent) Is Out

It might be a ‘mission impossible’ to create a fresh, new animated comedy in the modern television world. However the creators of Archer have done just that. For those of you who are yet to discover FX Network‘s animated secret agent, Archer first hit American screens briefly in a pilot episode in late 2009, with a ten episode first series airing in January 2010. The show returned for an extended second season last month in the US. At the time of writing this I can’t find any firm details as to when it’ll show in the UK. I discovered the

South Park S13 Round Up

The thirteenth season of South Park drew to a close last week on Comedy Central with an episode simply titled Pee. The world is flooded in typical armageddon style destruction by a giant wave of, err, pee. We see the Statue Of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower are destroyed (again), as is poor little Kenny. Still probably the best show on television, the thirteenth run has been another good one. It opened with a brutal shot at Disney and the Jonas Brothers in The Ring. You instantly knew they’d lost none of their bite. And you may never look at

Why Boris Won’t Let The UK Out Of Lockdown

I have seen many theories and reasons given for why Prime Minister Boris Johnson doesn’t fully lift the lockdown. I believe none of them show the reality of the situation we find ourselves in. The biggest reason our exhalted leader of North Borea, Kim Jon Son will fight lifting lockdown with everything he’s got is I suggest this, once the people are freed of their enforced house arrest and able to freely communicate with each other (away from the nightly propaganda fear porn of the mainstream media), the government’s narrative for the lockdown will collapse. As you and I have

Doctor Who A Good Man Goes To War, the mid-season finale, attracted 5.5 million viewers according to overnight figures. The long-running secret of River Song‘s true identity was finally revealed. Viewers also learnt more about Amy‘s baby, and why she is so important to the Doctor’s enemies. It also saw returns for many of the show’s monsters and allies from recent years. Above all it tells an epic tale that spanned the vastness of space and time. So did Steven Moffat’s story intentions win the war? Or did it fail to translate from script to screen, just like the Tardis
