'South Park' Vs. 'Family Guy': 5 Times 'South Park' Went Too Far (& 5 Times 'Family Guy' Did)
There's no denying the battle for the thorny crown forged from crude jokes and exploitable boundaries is still up for grabs. That's something we've been watching both South Park and Family Guy fight over for just shy of twenty years now. That's pretty impressive considering both iconic shows have, at times, pushed the boat out so far as to turn one too many heads and begin to question their careless propaganda. But, that being said, fans have enjoyed many years of watching the two factions hash it out over who gets the most despicable material past the boards.
The Royal Ballet's 'The Sleeping Beauty' Review

The Staying Power of Casablanca
My dad and I are both classic movie fans, it's one of the few things we bond over. We have a ritual of meticulously combing TCM’s weekly schedule and recording anything that sounds interesting. It started last summer; I was too depressed to go outside, and instead sat for hours, near-vegetative in front of the TV as Ben Mankiewicz talked about movies I’d only heard referenced in passing.

The third season of Stranger Things was one wild ride and probably the craziest adventure the series has taken audiences on so far. One would think it would be hard to top Demogorgons and giant monsters from another dimension. But the Netflix series outdid itself with a compelling narrative involving the Mind Flayers' unique return and a fun, 80s inspired Russian secret lab conspiracy beneath StarCourt Mall.
