Wait, is it in to hate Parker and Stone now? I must've missed that memo..say what you will about the sophomoric nature of most of their humor, but for my money there hasnt ever been a show on TV that more consistently took on the heaviest/most relevant/most ridiculous topics in our world right now and satirized them so very very cleverly. Kids come for the "fag" Adults stay for the biting commentary on ridiculously up to date and relevant pop culture/political/religious hot button issues.
Oh yeah and Sean Penn can act his fucking face off and i'll always love him in pretty much anything besides I Am Sam, but damn. He sure seems like he sucks all the fun out of being a human being. It's one thing to care deeply for humanity, it's another to become so self entitled over your good deeds that you feel you can talk down to people as if they are the cause of all the problems in the world.
