South Park send-ups weren’t always perfectly fair or accurate and could get downright heavy-handed and self-righteous in a hurry, but at least they used to be consistently, cuttingly and unashamedly funny. Their heart is in the right place with this attempt at exposing EA’s exploitation of college athletes, but the whole thing just feels like they’re going through the motions.
Why does Peter Moore have a southern oil baron voice? We always thought caricature was supposed to bring out the flaws in a person, but this is more like drawing a mustache on someone’s portrait and writing “poopyhead” underneath. Accurate? Maybe, but satire this ain’t. Also, Crack Baby Basketball? Really? So kudos for the choice of subject, the NCAA athletes suing for their rights deserve all the support they can get. But South Park looks like it could do with a bit of support itself in these troubled times.
