    I loooove South Park! But here in Hong Kong it is not as popular as in many Western countries! You do not name Hong Kong in the list of places where episode 8 of season 12 will not be available, does that mean I’ll be able to watch it from there?!

    Thanks for the info!


    See if you can watch any of the episodes here.

    Dude it was hilarious! Seriously, you have to admire the way the creators of the show manage to up the ante on obscene hilarity each and every year, truly amazing, and not for the feint of heart.

    Great show last night. Very psyched to have it back on. The beginning was hysterical with the Olympic opening ceremonies.

    I am sorry , I am a huge fan of south park but I was scratching my head for almost 18 minutes of the episode . I just did not find it that funny and expected much more from Matt and Trey for the premiere.
