Butters With the Oculus Rift (DK13.5)

All we can say is this better be frigg’n good!  South Park is having a special VR episode tonight on Comedey Central, right down to the worst rendering of the Oculus Rift we have ever seen.

What makes the show work is each episide is usually thought up, produced, and broadcast within a week.  This is how it stays current with the latest news events, and we are certain the writers have plenty of material to work with when it comes to VR!

So respect our “authoritah”, and tune in!

    Guys, I’m sorry to say…I was disappointed. It had an entertaining beginning, but the story was wearing on by the end. While I know many people liked it, and maybe the episode was good advertorial for Oculus, until you’ve seen the late great Steve Jobs sew his customers’ butts to other customers’ mouths as required by a new Apple Terms and Conditions clause that everyone approves blindly with their OS update, and the person at the beginning of the chain being forced to choose between vanilla paste or cuttlefish (and ALWAYS going with the wrong choice)…I expected a lot more – especially from South Park!

    The VR episode was cute and witty at times, but not South Park material. That’s my take.

    In South Park land, it was so-so. Come’on! Haven’t you ever seen the AWESOMO (AWE-SOME-OH!) episode??!? With the sleazy exec asking if Cartman in a crayon drawn robot shaped cardboard box was a “pleasure-bot”?!?!? “NOT COOL! TOTALLY LAME! NOT COOL! TOTALLY LAME!”.

    What this VR episode really needed was a whole lot of Randy Marsh. Just adding Randy Marsh with all the VR add-ons would have made this work on a whole other level. I’m already getting flashes of Randy Marsh dialogue in my mind “You don’t understand, Sharon! This is VR, Sharon! I’m in Cyberspace, Sharon – leave me alone! It’s bigger than us, Sharon!”. Now THIS would have been epic self deprecating satire with the crafty lack of taste that South Park was founded on. Not that unfunny “F-You” crap that had little to no wit attached (empty dialogue filler in my book). This really wasn’t up to par for South Park; I had higher expectations. Dare I say, they should have sunk far lower to really stand out on top! :lol:
