I’m not sure how Trey Parker and Matt Stone are scheduling SOUTH PARK content, but audiences are once again randomly treated to another SP extended episode… I mean movie. The latest isn’t as funny as POST-COVID THE RETURN OF COVID nor the VACCINATION SPECIAL, yet where it lacks in 😂 , it makes up for it with cleverness.

I love that the STREAMING WARS in this episode didn’t deal with television but instead the control of water flow. This makes for some perfect commentary on the current state of the TV streaming industry, disguised in the form of H2O. Sadly, the satire is drowned with too many repeating plots/characters that the creators should’ve retired already. If I’m subjected to any more ManBearPig or Tegridy Farms, I might go full “Karen” mode and “speak to the manager.”

However, even with these choppy seas, THE STREAMING WARS is a boat worth climbing aboard. It doesn’t get lost at sea, nor is it a complete shipwreck. Instead, it’s like a forty-five-minute booze cruise with your old friends down in SOUTH PARK. 

THE STREAMING WARS is available on Paramount+.
