Be Ready for South Park

This week's South Park should make some SERIOUS waves. Wednesday night is the premiere of the show's 10th season, and it comes on the heels of some serious controversy. Following the show's HYSTERICAL attack on Scientology last season, Isaac Hayes (a devout Scientologist and the voice of South Park's Chef) quit the show. Last week, the Scientology episode was to rerun on Comedy Central, but was instead magically changed to an older episode instead. Word on the street is that Tom Cruise threw down the gauntlet and told Viacom that if they reran the episode, he'd pull all promotions for Mission: Impossible III. Now rumor has it that Matt & Trey have rush-produced the Season 10 debut in under a week, which means it's BOUND to have their response to the whole debacle in it. All we know for sure is that it features "the triumphant return of Chef!" But without Hayes' voice, apparantly.

I'm literally getting armhair tingles waiting for it. I've said it before, I'll say it again: Trey Parker & Matt Stone are the funniest, smartest two guys in television. Whether you can deal with the edginess of South Park or not, you have to respect Matt & Trey for their PERFECTLY timed social skewerings. This week's episode will make history, I'm thinkin'. Tune in Wednesday at 9.
